Dark Future Ahead 11 -- News from the 'Net of a Cyberpunk bent

Generating power from water mains, clever. Not surprised that Portland, OR, is in the lead installing these but they could show up all over the place.

And speaking of power generation, in the fragmentation of Lebanon, people are hostage to the “generator mafia” for power. Useful for understanding what life might be like in the abandoned areas, barrens and under-cities.

How the Disney MagicBand system works and the implication it has for the future. They know where you are, where you and going and what you want (probably).

So, Prince has a secret vault full of unreleased songs. Someone will certainly want those [...]

GenCon Protests RFRA Bill...That They Obviously Haven't Read

Before we get all butthurt about the rest of the piece: 1) About the only people I discriminate against a folks with bad tattoos…you obviously make bad decisions, but hey! that’ll look great at 65! 2) I live in a state with a RFRA and that didn’t lead to flaming pyres with homosexuals roasting upon them. 3) As a libertarian (or “real liberal”) I don’t care what you do, so long as you don’t scare the horse, and everyone’s on board with it. So check the pro- or anti-gay bullshit at the door if you choose to comment.

Oh, you might [...]

To Scrivener and Back Again to Open Office

After the issues I've had lately with Windows 8 -- screwy updates that obstruct work, antivirus issues, a bad scare after AVG locked some vital startup files -- I've decided to go back to writing Hari Ragat in Open  Office.

I don't have Scrivener installed in any of my other PCs, nor can I view Scrivener files in my tablet; Open Office RTFs thus maximize compatibility across platforms. Though perhaps I should use .doc or .docx so I can easily move through Google Docs as well.

After making the move, I realized something else: it [...]

William Sachs discusses Galaxina 35 years later

In 1980 I discovered the treat of my teenage years in Dorothy Stratten. The beautiful Playboy Playmate was a wet dream come true and then just months after discovering her she was killed by her husband in a Hollywood-Babylon style murder that shocked the world. What is most tragic about this murder is that Stratten looked to be on the verge of becoming one of the biggest female stars in Hollywood. My father, whether he recognized my anguish or a rare moment of kindness, took me to see Galaxina. I was expecting a sexual escapade set in a sci fi world like Star Wars. What I got was one of the most unusual hour and a half of my life. I came away understanding what it was to get stoned and yet I never took a single drug.

First of all, Galaxina was a silly story that never seemed to make sense but it didn't matter because the move sucked me in. The movie is a playful Pinocchio story in which we see Stratten in the role of an Android/Robot that slowly discovers her beauty and sexuality. If you were expecting a skin flick you would be sorely disappointed. Instead we get something that holds up after thirty-five years. Though we have this awesomely sexy robot the film never really takes advantage of the obvious. Through the use of familiar film sets, strange sound effects, and a seven degrees of satire, we get a film that can only be appreciated by a true fan of science fiction. The whimsical nature of the film gives birth to a gang that worships Harley Davidson and spaceships that look like they could be something that you might cook for dinner. I watched the film again recently and though slow paced, the story was grabbing. [...]

Majestic Wilderlands - The Siege Ends

We pick up where we left off, unsurprisingly. We have all captured on the gatehouse roof, Leshar the Lizard Guy threatening to eat the hostages, the paladin ogling a set of +2 armor and being bequeathed with a vision that says we'd best get our butts to the lower levels of the tower that is currently on fire. 

Well, one of the towers currently on fire. 

The clergy of Mitra are chained in the bottom, and they take priority over +2 Plate. Alas.
Vognur: Sucks to be a paladin, heh heh.Mark the Paladin: Being a Paladin has its moments. This is not one of them.So, we've laid siege to a castle without a goal or a plan of any sort, captured two defensible areas and set one of them on fire, and endangered the one set of people that we seem to be here to protect.

Pretty standard way to begin a session for us.


Leshar shoves the hostages to the stairway, and Mark dashes back to the main area, leaving the shiny, shiny, tasty plate armor behind.

He notes that the only way across the the tower that requires his presence is to cross the burning wall, and he sees two warriors charging across. He flings two arrows their way, missing horribly with both, but takes up station in the doorway, gaining Advantage because, as Obi-Wan says, he has the high ground.

The guys on the roof are rolling barrels of oil and water around, to extinguish [...]

Ancient Anti-Biotics

Last Jackman Hero

By now Hugh Jackman's cryptic tweet, implying that he will be playing Wolverine one last time, has made its way across the comic and movie world. Fans of the popular character lament the end of an era, while speculation begins as to who could possibly replace him. Or whether Jackman's portrayal is so iconic that he can't be replaced at all.

For many fans of comic book movies, Wolverine was the start of this new post Marvel Golden Age we are currently experiencing. Hard as it is to remember back in 2000, big screen adaptations of mainstream comic properties were still tricky business. Live action superhero movies that were both financially successful for the studio, and faithful enough to the source material to please ardent fans were unheard of. Concessions had to be made. It was understood that many elements of the characters in print couldn't be translated to the silver screen.

Looking back, the X-Men seem like a great place to start. As one of Marvel Comics most popular and enduring franchises, there was a ready interest with a built in audience. But visually, there was more freedom to interpret as the costumes have never been as iconic as say, a Spiderman.

With expectations appropriately set, I was pleasantly surprised by the film and impressed with newcomer Hugh Jackman as fan favorite Wolverine. Minor gripes aside I thought it a serviceable portrayal of what I assumed would be a one and done X-Men flick.

Now fast forward 15 years and more than a half dozen times in the role, and I am amazed at how popular Hugh Jackman's take on the character has become, and how little it resembles Wolverine. Somehow Hugh Jackman as Wolverine has become something sacred. An act no actor can follow. But at the risk of sacrilege I believe [...]

The Voltamen warriors For Your Old School Science Fantasy Campaigns

One of the most dangerous races that adventurers might encounter in wastelands of Accursed Atlantis or any world are the

Do You Use Rule Sub Races in Your Campaigns?

This is going to be one of the topics for tomorrow night's recording of the Brainstorm Podcast - creating sub races for pre-existing fantasy races.

Do you use sub races (grey / high / wood elves and the like) and if you do, do you create your own?

Do you prefer to stick to just the default version of the race? Why or why not?

Are sub races purely flavor, or should they have a game effect?

Let me know your thoughts - and you can hear mine on the podcast ;)

State of the Game Night

I’ve been trying hard to keep my focus. We’ve got a long-running fantasy game set in a town where the characters have put down roots, and they want to continue exploring that; they are invested. So it stays in the rotation. Also, my Edge City game has been undergoing a transformation from a sandbox to a less stressful “monster of the week” style format, and that’s just now showcasing the new style. Those that play in Edge City really love it, and I don’t want to let that go.

I am determined to keep those two as the main games in [...]

Ebay finds and wondrous places

Ok, so I proselytize on geology here and there on the blog. And in that, I also occasionally collect geological curiosities - and not just specifically those picked up off the ground. That includes the occasional old text or map:

Blurry picture of a book
In this case, one of my saved Ebay searches pulled up an old American Geographical Society Annual Proceedings, 1874 edition.

The book documents the 1872 annual report, as recorded in their annual meeting in New York City, March, 1873.

I'm a Sucker for Battlemats, so I had to Share this Kickstarter

Figured I'd dust off the ol' blog to share this...

I'm a sucker for a good battlemat... (just take a gander at these posts: link).

I recently relocated and my old Battlemat of the Gods might not fit (still figuring that out).

These magnetic tiles from GNL look damn handy...


 

New Monster -- 3 Headed Kobold

That is one freaky looking dude!

This is a handy little ne’er-do-well I came up with the other day to thwart my players. It worked wonderfully well and turned a hum-drum encounter into one that was surprising and dangerously fun.

Take a regular kobold with typical statistics. Add two heads, one on either side of the central head. They breathe fire and the kobold is immune to fire. It can do everything a normal kobold can do AS WELL AS breathe fire once per round from each head in a fifteen foot line.

They are incredibly weak due to [...]

WANDERING HEROES OF OGRE GATE: THE SUPERNATURAL

We are still in the final stages of developing Wandering Heroes of Ogre Gate. Our play tests are going well and we are making some tweaks to a few key areas of the game. Things seem to be going as planned and we are hoping for a release sometime in the near future (we don't want to issue an official release date because we'd like to take our time getting things right). Soon I should have a post up about some of the changes we've made to things like Balance Points and other mechanics, but right now I'd like to talk about the role of the supernatural in the setting, particularly in light of how we've used it in recent playtest sessions. 

One thing to keep in mind is while there are a number of wuxia style films featuring things like Fox Demons and other elements of Chinese mythology, these are [...]

MidSouthCon After-Action Report

(Meant to post this last week)

Two weekends ago, I travelled to Memphis for MidSouthCon 33. This was the first con I was to attend in Tennessee and I was looking forward to it.

I happened to learn of the con through my friend Geri who was posting having an extra free pass and no one to give it to. I asked and she agreed to give one to me.

So Friday morning, I drove down interstate 40 to Memphis. I arrived just in tmie for the 2pm game slot. After a little bit of a scramble, I got [...]

Masters of the Universe Monday: Fisto for D&D 5th Edition


FISTO
Malcom is the older brother of Duncan, Randor's first Man-At-Arms.  Malcom surved under King Miro during the Great Unrest but was wounded in battle and stricken with magical amnesia.  

Wandering through Eternia he settled in the Mystic Mountains in a mining settlement unable to piece together how he lost his battalion.  His life changed when the Snake Men attacked his town and he helped save the Masters of the Universe from their trap.  But in doing so, Malcom shattered his right hand.  In gratitude Duncan replaced it with a robotic strong arm.  Now known as Fisto, he has made [...]

Suffering from [Genre] Mood Swings



I'm not sure if this is typical of all gamers, or just me, but I often describe myself as being in a "[genre] mood" when looking to play certain games or declining others.  At any given time, I'm really excited to be playing games in one very specific genre, typically for a period of three to six weeks, and then I move on to something else.  I get obsessive and very specific during these periods of time.  For instance, I may be in an "Ancient Roman" mood, listening to Dan Carlin's Hardcore History podcast, watching Spartacus: Blood and [...]

House Rules, and HOW!

Although I’ve yet to play Heroes & Other Worlds, I’ve played a ton of The Fantasy Trip back in the day, so I’ve already started down the road of house-ruling a bunch of stuff. Here’s my current list:

Criticals & Fumbles

In HOW, 3 is automatic hit and double max damage, 4 is automatic hit for max damage, 17 is automatic miss and dropped weapon, and 18 is automatic miss and broken weapon. This is almost the same as TFT, which uses triple and double damage for 3 and 4, but drops the 5 is automatic hit and 16 is automatic miss.

The Times They Are A Changin'

I'll do my best to keep this brief. Nearly two years ago, I set a specific schedule for myself on this blog. I made sure I would try my hardest to post something every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. While I would occasionally break that schedule, I tried to keep those instances few and far in between. 
However, I've had trouble keeping that schedule this year. My life has gotten a little more hectic and since I just got a new job, I don't see that changing anytime soon. Because of that, I'm going to be altering my posting schedule slightly. [...]

Game Stories: Coup Redux

A while back, I posted about the board game Coup, talking about how the different characters' powers each had a sort of story baked into them, reinforcing the theme with mechanical effects. I'd like to revisit this game a second time around. This time, I'm talking about how the entire game comes together, how it folds a bunch of different mechanisms into one big collection of game that creates a very specific atmosphere. Curious?


First off, let's have a quick recap of how the game works. Coup is a game about lying and knocking your opponents out of [...]

Meet 78, Adv 4, 3/21/15

The group eventually got to the last fight with the dwarven priest of Hades who assaulted them in 3 waves of various undead baddies - with a surprise of a wraith assault at the end.

Damage was almost zero since as the group pointed out - if they HAD gotten hit, it would have meant level drain as well as damage - and we already had a few group members suffering with negative levels to date.

The next meeting would be the cleanup and training - and then we'll take a few weeks off before rolling into adventure [...]

The 5 best ways to fail on Kickstarter

Gregory Carslaw was born to a gaming couple and rolled his first die before speaking a word. He has a PhD in Psychology, studied Artificial Intelligence and joined 3DTotal games in 2013. His first game took six months to design … only for it to be shelved. It was going to be too expensive to make.

3DTotal moved on to 404: Law Not Found, a game about robots firing scientists from tubes. 404: Law Not Found funded ~230% on Kickstarter. Now’s Greg and 3DTotal have returned to that original game and Wizard’s Academy is approaching it’s target on [...]

Mythoard: April Signups Are Open!

You can now signup for April's Mythoard box, which will include, among other things, Lichfield, a semi-exclusive adventure for Dungeon World.

I've already talked about it in two other posts, but essentially it's a 30-page adventure that's inspired by the Silent Hill series (hence the name, as opposed to the longer ones I've used in the past).

In a nutshell the main villain is a dead witch, who hellishly transforms both the city and most of its citizens due to her aforementioned affliction. The characters get caught up in this, and have to stop her before the city is destroyed.

Misspells

Bonus XP if you know who this is!When you write as much as I do, you get used to dealing with typographical errors. Some of them are rather amusing -- I remember one blog post in which some room trap involved a wench rather than a winch lifting something heavy. I suppose anybody who has ever visited modern D&D message boards knows about that game's very mysterious "rouge" class (which I have now decided I am going to write).

One area in which I have made more than a few errors, and repeated errors at that, is with spell [...]

Orc Quest: Episode 7 - An Eye for Adventure

It was a day's travel to arrive before the fortified gates of Haganna. It was late evening and the guards stood in place to block their entry. It was quickly revealed that the mayor had issued a decree that orcs were forbidden to enter the city. The party wound up improvising and with the assistance of the party bard Cunnin managed to convince the guards that they were on a mission to deliver this human girl to someone inside the town. A quick bribe changed hands, and they were shown around to a side entrance, handed robes, and given the [...]

Woodwose for Basic Era Games

The Woodwose is a creature from English mythology that is part wild man, part bigfoot, part fae and part demonic spirit...depending on who you ask. But interestingly enough they never have really graced the pages of any official D&D product; though Brownies come close and there has been a Woodwose for Pathfinder. This is not based on those, this a new take. Woodwose AC: 6 [13] Hit Dice: 2d8*

The Haunted Valley


Of the Lost City of Gaxmoor and the World of Aihrde....

The blood was hot, and sticky. It clung to him even as it oozed across his palm and down his wrist. Flinging it off he continued his cutting. The kill must be bled first, to lighten the load if nothing else. Besides, the hunt was long and hard and the boy was hungry. The others could wait. He cleaned his hands in the dirt.

As the beast's warmth spilled into grass he gathered some deadfall from the scant brush that grew in the long narrow [...]

"Meet and Marry a Gorgeous Russian Queen" or Why White Feminists Never Get Invited to Rap Battles

The first lady’d be all:

Cuz some other lady’s here sayin stuff you don’t like
I don’t even know you but you’ve taken offense
You need to get off the stage if you’re really that dense”

And then the other lady would be all:

Mundane Items Table

There you are writing your Pathfinder encounters for your weekly campaign, and you've got to come up with 1,070gp worth of treasure.  You could just give the PCs 21 pounds of gold, but you want the treasure to be interesting, connected to the story, and varied.

So you turn to the Designing Encounters chapter.  There's some guidance for what to give out for treasure, but it keeps giving general categories like "Jewelry, Minor" and "Mundane Gear."  You find yourself looking for more inspiration.  And a list that has all the different nonmagical items ranked by value.

Well, look [...]

Gary Con 2015

Now this was a fine vintage!

Although I attended in a most relaxed fashion, I spent more time at the convention than I ever did.  Then again, it was the first year that I hosted events.  I showed up Thursday and played a. . . game.  Imagine that!  (I forgot the title of course).  Sitting in the open gaming area, facing toward the lake  in back of the resort, I enjoyed the mist-shrouded landscape as much as the game itself.  We all finished within one victory point of each other.  I was brave enough then to drive away for [...]

Silent Legions, a game of modern-day Lovecraftian horror

The world is broken in hidden ways. The truth is concealed for the sake of mortal minds. The unendurable reality that boils behind the stars is veiled by the pleasant blindness that human sanity requires. Yet every comforting shroud must fall in time, and for these investigators, that time is now.

Silent Legions is a game of modern-day Lovecraftian horror, one carefully designed to support sandbox adventures by hard-bitten investigators and fearless hunters of the dark. Its clean, lightweight old-school rules are compatible with the free Stars Without Number sci-fi game and give both GM and players a steady framework for [...]

On Being a Better Con Gamer

Here in the snowy wilds of Canada, winter is loosening its grip on the land. Which means all the introverted nerds like me can come out of our winter hibernation and start taking in that most glorious of gaming activities: the gaming convention. Locally, GOBFest was just this past weekend, a mighty collection of board gamers gathered together to share the hobby we love dearly. With the gaming con season starting back up (not that it ever really ends, but spring is as good an arbitrary starting point as any), I thought I’d share some tips on being a good [...]

1970s -- 1980s Post-Apoc Movie Week!

This week is my break from clinical training, so am planning to watch a slew of post-apoc movies from the 1970s and 1980s. Almost none of which I have ever seen before.

Today’s schedule, 3 works by Gene Roddenberry that were made as TV pilots in the mid-1970s:

Genesis II

Planet Earth
