    Temple of Elemental Evil Adventure

    ToEE has a weird spot in my gaming history, as when I played it ot was the first time the DM wasn’t the guy who introduced me to RPGs, and (to put it mildly) The DM and several players were not the best examples of humanity. I’n kind of amazed I kept with gaming after dealing with them. i...

    Video game universes that deserve a spin at the tabletop (and what game would you use)

    I guess Nintendo is unaware of it, since I understand the physical edition of John Dies At The End had the Nintendo parody reworked due to lawyers coming to call about the original e-version.

    Do players buy-in more to learning a setting nowadays?

    @Picaroon Jack , you have me now thinking about the extremes I’ve seen in the same folks. The players I had who’ll focus on every aspect of one fame will pay so little attention to a setting to know they weren’t on Earth. @Baulderstone Off the top of my head I can’t name the other games...

    Do players buy-in more to learning a setting nowadays?

    Last night I got to page through an RPG that my only interest in came from knowing one of the artists and having heard an amusing behind-the-scenes tale regarding it. As I expected, it isn’t my kind of game, but looking at the XP system it raised a question I have to ask. The game has players...

    The Reincarnation thread - What's your character going to be reincarnated into?

    Reincarnation? And give up the eternal bliss of Silicon Heaven? Oh, you fleshies.

    The Truth Is Still Out There

    About two months ago a coworker filmed a UFO above her home. She’ll freely admit it could be an ass hooked a giant light to a drone and flew it in the wee hours, but pretty much everyone who has seen her video has called her an alien-obsessed lunatic. It’s as though people have hardwired “IFO”...

    The Video Game Thread: What are you Playing?

    Yeah, I think they had two “Attach repeater units” quests to cut down on creating unique assests. i understand Wasteland 3 has recycling of Wasteland 2 assets to a surprising degree.

    Games for people... of a certain age

    Tangentally, a coworker and I had a discussion about aging based on how much you remember of the changes in price, portion, and flavor of foid at Sbarros.

    Video game universes that deserve a spin at the tabletop (and what game would you use)

    The Shadow Hearts series and its prequel done as either 3.5 with the XP-point buy system or first edition Torg with the axioms and workd laws stripped out, and gear having Eternity Shard-like stat blocks.

    Has anyone seen a color Hero Forge mini in-person?

    Thank you! I agree they’re pricy, but I figure I only want to do one figure, and I’ve got an overdue refund coming my way, so I can afford it.

    The Video Game Thread: What are you Playing?

    I found a guide that seems to indicate it’s a glitch, so I’d have to backtrack severely on my saves to give it a go again. i’m an idiot for giving this game another chance. I may try and figure out how to edit my save file, but it’s not something I have much experience with.

    Real Life and What's Happening...

    Hilariously, they like to brag they have the plot for themselves and their spouse all paid up.

    Has anyone seen a color Hero Forge mini in-person?

    The title says it all, really. My vision has gotten Magooish with age, and painting minis is becoming more a rage-inducing exercise than fun. I’ve switched to larger scale pieces, but it’s not quite the same. i saw an ad for Hero Forge the other day, and made a figure I liked. I’m thinking...

    Real Life and What's Happening...

    It’s been a rough few weeks, and today I’ve been dealing with an elderly family member who has spent the day being the embodiment of every stereotype regarding old people dealing with retail workers and old people expecting younger people to handle all technological issues for them. Right now...
