In this episode of Role-Play Ramblings Matt talks about planting seeds.  Which in this conversation is a combination of foreshadowing, note taking, listening and even closure.

 


This is something that I think newer GM’S struggle with, but once it’s learned it is very rewarding.

To start Season two of Role-Play Ramblings Matt talks about the importance of note taking in an RPG.  He covers who should takes notes and  when some of the better times for taking them are.

 

 

I had a lot of fun filming this episode.  It took me a lot longer than I thought it would to play three people, but I had a blast.  I hope to do more like this in the future.

In this episode of Words with Sean Patrick Fannon and I talk about Savage Rifts. Sean shares with us the origins of this wonderful idea and some new mechanics.  I think Sean is especially happy with the new Juicer rules, I know I am.

This is super exciting for me.  I have been playing Rifts off and on for nearly thirty years and I love it each time.  For me this is the perfect way to explore Savage Worlds a game that I have been putting off for about 4 years now.

Stay Tuned for more info on that experience.

Nothing is Safe as Award-Winning Game System Gets Unchained

REDMOND, WA (April 29, 2015): Paizo Inc. announces today the release of Pathfinder Unchained, the new hardcover rulebook for the award-winning Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Releasing April 2015 with an MSRP of $39.99, Pathfinder Unchained is an indispensable companion to the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook.

From totally revised fundamentals like core classes and monster design, to brand-new systems for expanding the way the game is played, Pathfinder Unchained makes the player the game designer, and offers fresh ideas while still blending with the existing system.

Said Jason Bulmahn, Lead Designer for Pathfinder, “Over a year ago, I went to talk to Publisher Erik Mona about a book idea I had. The pitch was simple: ‘Let us do a book filled with whatever crazy ideas we have floating around in our heads.’ He said ‘no.’ I said, ‘Wait though, allow me to explain, our crazy ideas might make the game better.’ He said ‘tell me more,’ and Pathfinder Unchained was born.”

Pathfinder RPG: Unchained includes:

  • New versions of the barbarian, monk, rogue, and summoner classes, all revised to make them more balanced and easier to play.
  • New skill options for both those who want more skills to fill out their characters’ backgrounds and those seeking streamlined systems for speed and simplicity.
  • Changes to how combat works, from a revised action system to an exhaustive list of combat tricks that draw upon your character’s stamina.
  • Magic items that power up with you throughout your career—and ways to maintain variety while still letting players choose the “best” magic items.
  • Simplified monster creation rules for making new creatures on the fly.
  • Exotic material components ready to supercharge your spellcasting.
  • New takes on alignment, multiclassing, iterative attacks, wounds, diseases and poisons, and item creation.
  • And much, much more.

Pathfinder Unchained is available at hobby game and book stores nationwide, as well as on paizo.com.

It includes extensive alternative historical backgrounds for the four most prominent nations of North America and offers six new professions with associated skills and edge trees, as well as the automaton racial template.

NemezisSavage Worlds: Nemezis

$24.99 SRP

The ancients foresaw the coming of vile beasts. Monstrosities born at the dawn of the universe that would awaken from their millennia-long slumber to destroy the Earth and humankind. These monsters were dubbed the Dark Gods by the forgotten prophets of days past; according to their grim vision, nothing could stop these beings from destroying the human race. The prophecies were all true. Deities have awakened and destroyed the Earth. And humanity responded with firepower. The prophets did not realize just how much power the human race would have in the Time of Judgment. They did not understand the destructive power of plasma weapons. They could not imagine an armada of starships able to launch hundreds of thousands of missiles at once. The monsters may have almost godly powers, but the majority of them still vaporize when hit by a megaton warhead!

You are one of the people who do not fear inhuman beasts, servants of the dark deities, or other unspeakable forces. You have discovered the secrets of the corrupt, debased nobles of Bariz. You have tracked down cultists of the Dark Gods trying to take over Ash even as it freezes. And as for the monstrous spawn, well, hunting trips on Cor have challenging game at last!
