Christopher Lee passed away

Hard to believe, as I've watched him all my life (I loved his Dracula movies when I was a kid). Christopher Lee has died. He lived a long, storied life, and I could only wish to do half of the things he'd done.

From English spy in WW2, to one of the best actors ever, Sir Christopher will be missed. RIP.

Tanith Lee passed away

Tanith Lee has died. She was a great fantasy author, and if you have not read any of her books, I recommend you do so. RIP.

Glorantha Guide now out

I had no idea this even existed, but it was posted on the RPGSite Forums. I'm definitely interested, even though I've had a long love/hate relationship with the world.

Guide To Glorantha

On one hand, it has a fantastic mythology. On the other, I'm guessing 90% of the material is all about the Dragon Pass and Sartar region. I would jump on a book about the West, but it seems that Greg Stafford isn't all that interested in the area. I kind of think he only included it to make the general gaming public happy.

In any case, the books look great and I'm strongly considering jumping back into this world, even though I know I'll never actually game in it.

It's been a gaming wasteland for me lately

Haven't really done anything with roleplaying games in months. I guess I really needed a break, as I haven't even read an rpg book since last year. Certainly don't have a gaming group anymore (curse that stupid woman my GM married). Anyways, hopefully that will turn around sometime. I will say I've gotten a lot more stuff done around the house since I'm not gaming for hours every week. ;)

Has anyone made a good d6-based fantasy rpg?

There is D6 Fantasy, but that is pretty generic. Same with Gurps and Hero. Has anyone made a game similar in tone to Dungeons and Dragons, but using the D6 rules specifically modified for a D&D style of game. Also good art (my favorite style is similar to Warhammer Fantasy) would be very helpful.

RIP R.A. Montgomery

The man responsible for the Choose Your Own Adventure series passed away. I have to say, he was very influential to me. Without his books, it's quite likely I would have quit gaming when I was a kid. He really helped me visualize what adventures were all about.

Still haven't picked up 5e yet

Most of the reviews of 5e that I have seen have been pretty positive. I've flipped through the Players Handbook and it did look pretty good. I haven't seen the DMG or MM yet, and I'm kind of hoping there will be a discounted set of all three books before I actually buy in.

It's kind of weird, as I bought 3e, 3.5, and 4e all on the day they were first available, and had read them within a week after that. I just really don't have that fire anymore. Maybe I'm just getting too old for this stuff. :)

5e DMG preview


Bushi D6 updated

I've updated Bushi D6  for those of you that are interested. Added in some more NPCs, fixed a bunch of minor errata, a couple new items, and other small stuff. Please let me know what you think!

Bushi D6 - doing some more work on it

I've been working more on Bushi D6. Just adding some stuff that I missed (like how the heck did I not include the yakuza at all?). I'm also adding some more NPCs and monsters, as well as more perks and complications. I've also added in a few more magic items (I really, really need to expand this section). I figure I'll be posting an update in a few more days, once I've got enough new stuff to make it worthwhile.
