I listen to one episode before I go to bed. 90% of the time it is RFI, Save or Die, or Thac0hammer. It doesn't get said enough, I really appreciate you guys doing them. I love TSR D&D and the retro-clones. You guys do a great service to the community.

Finally got around to working with Frog God's Tome of Adventure Design, and having a great time with it. Thus far I've generated a logical and multi-layered adventure concept, centered around a temple almoner (the guy whose responsibility it is to dole out alms to the poor) suspected by a temple archivist of embezzling funds. I've discovered the true story going on beneath that simple hook, and I'm finding my creativity being sparked with every die result on the book's many tables.

Though I only just now realized, as I typed up my accumulated notes, that Frog God's Tome of Adventure Design can be called ToAD for short.

This is one of the best utility products out there, and one I have been using constantly ever since its release. Highly recommended.

Has anyone run Razor Coast from Frog God Games? I'd like to run it, but am going to be short on prep time due to school.

Did it run fairly smoothly with minimal prep or is it something that requires a lot of book keeping to track NPCs and what not?

Amazon goodies!
My boss appreciates me jumping in and picking up after two people on another team resigned in the same two week period. He's only been my boss about seven months. He gave me an Amazon gift card to show appreciation. I used that to knock some items off my Amazon wish list, and also splurged when ...

+Joe Coo You need to see the R&B Hobbit. It informs what a hobbit should look like to me. I thought the elves were all wrong. The orcs are what I think of, not the pig faces of the MM.

I will be starting a new campaign next Monday. The easy way to describe it would be to say that I will be running +Patrick Stuart's Deep Carbon Observatory campaign using +Christian Mehrstam's WhiteHack rules system.

Unfortunately I'm not sure that concept is going to survive my players... We have already done character generation for this one, when my players heard that they could choose any species they like for their characters three of them went to town.

So my group is:
1 - Human Deft Swordmaster
2 - Human Child Orphan Deft Thief
3 - Gnoll Wise Portal Mage
4 - Unknown Species 900 year old Wise Druid (Yoda/goblin)
5 - Sophasaur Wise Telepathic Velociraptor

I have no idea if I'm actually going to get very far into Deep Carbon Observatory but whatever does happen, it's going to be fun!

+Doug Kilmer​ Yeah, I'm very pleased with that character. His arms are rubbish so he can't use weapons and he also can't wear armour because he is Wise, but he does have scales and claws so I've given him a fixed AC of 2 and damage of d6.

I was a little worried about his ability to do usually-simple things like climb ladders so one of his miracles is now Uncanny Agility which he can use for crazy feats of climbing, jumping and running.

Nazi Werewolves From Outer Space (Don Marquez). Seems like nearly enough for a mini- campaign there!

Hey folks, sorry for missing my Sunday post. I plan on doing another tomorrow night and Thursday night, so as to keep the ball rolling on this project. This is yet another installment in my series about the weird city in my mind, called the Infinite City. This post focuses on a group called the Sarxists who see physical change as a religious experience. Identity, and how we express it, has been a rather large issue in our real world these days. What can be found in this post is how I think my fantasy world would handle such concepts as physical change to match identity. If you enjoy it, I am glad. If you don't, I'm sorry but this is my world, go get your own. Let me know what you folks think.
Oh what strange avenues we shall find in this city of change. Art by Quique Alcatena In this city, fear and desire are found in a pound of flesh. Backstreet surgeons sling scalpels to rearrange the form, taking the undes...

+Gavin Norman: Thank you for the complement, it is an honor to be given on by a man of you accomplishments. To answer your question, the Sarxists wouldn't assist someone to steal the identity of another. The Sarxists hold identity as being sacred, akin to Marcel's concept of a Mystery. +Scott Anderson: The illustration is by Quique Alcatena, a South American comic book artist. +Chris Angelucci: I have never read BLAME! but I will check it out. Thank you very much for the compliment, I really appreciate new folks taking the time to read my stuff.

In which I join the conversation re: reasonably recent Fighting-Man kerfuffle.
There have been a rash of posts here and there about spicing up the Fighter. A lot of the problem with the Fighting-Man is that he is misunderstood: A fighter is not meant to be the main damage dealer (although he does deal ...

I don't dislike it either way. Just can imagine some players trying to take advantage if it's not clear. 🙂
