The Panzerfaüste Song Book and other odds and ends

Monday, October 26th, 2015

With Hysterical Games’ Panzerfaüste Kickstarter well underway I thought I’d dig up some old bits and pieces for Panzerfaüste and post them here. Just two pages to start things off… An expanded version of the The Panzerfaüste Song Book that appeared in Ragnarok 55. Now with added instrumental support for singers and some other tweaks. […]

Building Maps for Role Playing with Vue

Monday, February 13th, 2012

I quite often make maps and other diagrams for games I’m running using Vue and other computer graphic software.  Over the weekend I was messing around with GeoControl2 and it randomly produced a landscape I quite liked the look of but I don’t have a game it fits with at the moment.   So I thought […]

The Grey Movie Review with bonus Role Playing Thoughts

Friday, February 10th, 2012

Its BAFTA weekend and I’m not expecting The Grey to be getting any nominations other than for film shot in the coldest location (and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy may beat it in that category too).  As is pretty obvious from the poster above it’s another Liam Neeson vehicle trying to find the ingredient that he […]

Ursa Carrien is the first release from Nightfall Games of a pure PDF product. At 98p it’s an eight page bargain for anyone who plays SLA Industries RPG.

Ragnarok 58

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

Issue 58 of Ragnarok (the journal of the SFSFW) landed through my post box today including my article for Wessex Games’ Strange Tydes The Bare Belly Coast. Immediately spotted an editing error I’d made where I’d truncated a sentence… “The alliance with the Orcs eventually saw it added it to their empire as a protectorate […]

Pelgrane talk at Dragonmeet 2010

Monday, November 29th, 2010

The following notes come from the seminar at Dragonmeet (27th November 2010) by Kenneth Hite, Robin D Laws, Simon Rogers and Gareth Hanrahan.  I didn’t record the talk so these are just notes that I took that give the gist of what was being said.  They’re also only the notes about investigative gaming.   I’m providing […]
