A One Player Funnel…

Yep. That’s right. A funnel played by one player. I ran it for Gage. It took me a couple hours of idea-pondering while at work and just under a minute to jot down the ideas I had for the flow of the adventure, leaving just enough room for Gage’s choices. About a month ago, I […]

Blind DCC

Ok. So it’s been a minute since I posted. I’ve been busy shit-canning the old game and getting started with the new. A couple of months ago, some of my players came to me with the idea of running a RPG “blind”, which is to say no numbers. For them. They have descriptions of their characters, […]

Vampires Ohnoes!

So here’s a thing I ran into in my wanderings: The Vampire 5e Pre-alpha I know it’s VERY early, but I do like what I see so far. I know, I said similar things about D&D5e when the public playtest happened and ultimately put the game back on the shelf to collect dust…but for now, […]

DCC Worldstone Sessions 2 & 3

Turns out, I forgot to mention a couple of things from the first session… At the end of the discussion at the inn, after Loomis left the party to its devices, the four of them had a little conversation about how dangerous the mission promises to be (they had heard stories of better equipped parties […]

DCC Worldstone Session 1

As mentioned, two of our regular players are down for the count with real life things. My wife and daughter were on the return trip from Washington, DC. Steven joined us (with some initial technical difficulties) via Skype. This was our first DCC RPG game. It’s been said that DCC isn’t for everyone and I […]

DCC, Hubris, Our World

Random stream of consciousness forthcoming… We’ve been playing a campaign for about a year now. We started with Dungeon World to get everyone a taste of the basics. We then moved to the Adventurer, Conqueror, King System for one session, but while the game itself is good it just didn’t hit that sweet spot. The […]
