    So, Psionics, What Do You Think?

    Those leatherettes were killer, taken as a whole. Despite its commercial decline, the Nineties were really D&D's Golden Age.

    So, Psionics, What Do You Think?

    I'm having a bit of trouble untangling my opinions on this matter-- I generally like the idea that some kind of psychic powers exist in my games. I generally prefer it to be separate from the D&D standard arcane/divine sort of magic, but I also separate primal from divine, but but I also kinda...

    What are y'all up to these days?

    I think imma start referring to my forever girlfriend as my "utility cruiser", and I'll let y'all know how that works out.

    What are you watching?

    Allowing yourself to be the butt of the joke like that is a massive flex, though. It doesn't matter what they say about Taco Bell in the film itself, because they know where you and your friends are going to eat afterwards.

    What are you watching?

    Irene loves silly East Asian romantic comedies and genres, and I mostly like colorful and action-heavy fantasy fare... and we've compromised on The Untamed on Netflix. Pretty good stuff... pretty solid "yes, this is my Appendix N" vibe, where I didn't have a proper single work to identify it.

    What is Your Appendix N?

    The entire Conan the Barbarian franchise, but first and foremost that original stories by Robert E. Howard. Extra credit for the Marvel and/or Dark Horse comics, which are surprisingly faithful. Howard's Conan and his Hyborian Age are a lot richer and more nuanced than most people have ever...

    Moderation Criticisms

    On the other hand, there are some topics in the usual political discourse where I would readily and matter-of-factly describe the tactics of one entire side of the argument as "gaslighting". Certainly, there is no absence of actual toxicity and actual harrassment on all manner of topics in all...

    What are y'all up to these days?

    I really want to run Alternity again, though I'm not sure what I want to do with it. Probably something doomish in PL6 with psionics and/or arcane FX.

    Reboot that game!

    I will second this. 100% compatible, with a chapter on alternate playstyles and trait sets (Affiliations versus Values versus w/e) and all the official datafiles are modular like that, defaulting to "generic 616" and MCU presentations, and then going back to the Event product lines the way MWP...

    House rules (as seen online/in magazines!)

    When I run Alternity, which I haven't done in far too long, I use some of the house rules from removing INT from starting skills, mostly, and some of the new rank benefits. When I run Street Fighter: the Storytelling Game, which I really haven't done in far too long, I use...

    The Other Side and the Occult Thread

    I was raised in a... particular New Age but half-assed still kinda Protestant household, a lot of talk of psychic powers and UFOs and straight-up witchcraft in the house. I fell out of the religious half of things due to a change in family circumstances, but I still felt drawn to the more...

    Players who railroad GMs

    Like you, I only have one real horror story about prima donna players and their precious backstories. I wouldn't have stopped playing that way over one bad experience. (Though it really, really sucked.) I stopped allowing backstories because of the dozens of times I watched players refusing to...

    Safety Tools in RPGs Meta-Discussion

    Just because all speech should be allowed doesn't mean that speech isn't subject to right or wrong. In fact, it is the very rightness or wrongness of speech that makes it so important that all speech must be allowed.
