Nice article

Nice article by Allen on RPGs. Just found it. http://www.escapistmagazine.com/issue/36/21 The Forge is a little too complicated for my forum tastes. Too serious. Their theory is as good as anyone's elses theory, I guess. I think it's very funny that they can't fit Paranoia into their little catagori...

Boy, prices on RPGs are still soaring out of site. I should be selling off some of my dups. I have a lot of stuff still wrapped in plastic. But it really is hard for me to part with my babies.

I don't like to flip pages, so Vincent's cut and paste to keep the information handy is good for me. Also, I like a work to be as complete as possible, so having a bunch of references to other references gives me a real pain. So I think Vincent Darlage is doing it up right.

I never thought all my RPGs would still have value. But I should have known I wouldn't be the only one still collecting old RPGs. I'm so egocentric. Thanks for the link. I was there some time ago, but didn't bookmark it. I'm still looking for a lower price for 2nd edition Twilight 2000. Thanks High ...

I like all the old stuff. Saw the new Paranoia books on sale at Bosco's in Anchorage, but the kids had my money in hand. Maybe next time.

I feel that d20 will forever have a D&D flavor for me. I've not much played RQ. So that leaves me with Talent. I like the use of Weaknesses in the game. The ones for magic and such play out real well. No other RPG seems to do a better job at this. Anytime someone encounters something that triggers t...

That's great news! I like that it worked. Now there is hope in following along the lines of stories I have read. Thanks quigs for the playtest, and Baduin for working out the mechanics. I haven't played more than a simple fight scene with this particular RPG. But my son has more interest in it, and ...

I started a similar story on the Conan Fan Fiction forum, but few people on this forum had much to comment on it. I'm now writing it for myself off line. I had mentioned in my notes, that Conan would eventually confront Turan, but after he defeated the Overlord and united the Hyborian Kingdoms. Anyw...

Conan RPG by Cook published by TSR. Excellent system, recommended. Not d20, uses no abilities just lists of Talents, and a single resolution table. Makes up characters exactly the way you want them to be. No classes or levels. I love the system and have made attempts to revive it. http://talent.myfa...

I think Baduin's on the right track. If we can play up the Terror angle and make it work, it will bring many of the Conan stories to life. I just realized that DB is designed to cause "players" to feel fear. NPCs and your character, do not have to be blasted to bits to be afraid. Rumor and stories o...

Excellent work. You have all the angles covered pretty much. But don't forget the Warlord's place in this. He may be controlled to an extent by the Sorcerer, but the Sorcerer is also being distracted by a pretty girl. The Warlord may gain back some independence and seek to regain his hold over his d...

If I ever try it out, I will make DB a regular spell, probably a Mighty Spell. A Scholar will not have it automatically. Also, a player will not be able to choose Scholar as a starting character, they will have to choose another class first, then they may choose Scholars. Only NPCs will be allowed t...

Fontographer by Macromedia, came with the Macromedia Studio package I bought for 300 or so dollars 5 years or so ago. You can make up a font in no time at all, and the interface is easy. You can even scan a font and recreate it. It has batch functions, so you can manipulate one letter and apply all ...

Perhaps one could be done up like the freeform one going on with Starship Troopers Fan Fiction forum. Just make up a starting place, let players enter whenever they want and continue from there. The original poster can give some direction, but the players can move it wherever they like also. Players...

I just realized something. Conan did not have a sense that helped him to detect the nature of his adversaries. He was fooled many times by them, because he didn't realize who they were till almost too late. Therefore, a sorcerer would have to do something or wear something to proclaim him/her for wh...

Good deal, someone around my own age. I had the white box also, but it was lost. I'm still crying over it. But I made up for it by collecting over 100 RPGs (not counting suppliments and stuff, and not computer games either). Anyway, glad Brass Jester is older than me. Makes me feel young again. :D
