    Monty Python's Cocurricular Mediaeval Reeanactment Programme

    Flying Circus and the LPs were awesome. I did enjoy Holy Grail and Life of Brian. Meaning of Life started to get a bit formulaic. I enjoyed Spamalot when we went to watch it in the theater, but I really do see it for what it was: Eric Idle cashing in. I suspect that this is part of that effort...

    What are y'all up to these days?

    Well, exactly. I did say it made more sense than Star Wars, not that it made complete sense. Actually the idea is something like Star Wars, where everyone else is using guns/lasers/blasters, but the knights are so good with their swords that they don't need them and nobody else stands a chance...

    What are y'all up to these days?

    If you're going to go with a plain-old "bunch of Joes in a free trader" campaign, then, sure, creating all of that detail would be a waste of time. But the point of a campaign setting like that would be that the players would be members of the noble houses, they would be in a position where...

    What are y'all up to these days?

    Well, that isn't the part of Dune I was going to graft. I was thinking about Star Wars, and what I like about it and what I don't like about it, especially from the perspective of using it as an RPG setting. Okay, sure, everyone wants to be a Jedi and swing a light saber around and do all that...

    What are y'all up to these days?

    Still running Traveller (Mongoose 2e) with my family, although we're having problems finding time now that school is starting again. It's just "a bunch of Joes on a Free Trader" right now, but once they have a good handle on everything we're going to soft-reboot the campaign and segue into...

    Got a good sci fi map?

    Have you tried Pinterest? That's where I go when I'm not feeling like making my own maps. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/de/c0/c1/dec0c10d3e6d255e4b7c5a06621cabc2.png

    What are y'all up to these days?

    I ran a GURPS campaign based on "The Drawing of the Dark" once. It was one of the best campaigns I've ever run. Sorry, free associating again....

    What RPG genre do you like the most?

    I believe SJG made them available via their POD program.

    What RPG genre do you like the most?

    Well, at least they acknowledge that something has to change. I guess we'll see what direction that takes them.

    As a complete aside, did you see this post over on the SJG forums? http://forums.sjgames.com/showpost.php?p=2433070&postcount=3 Sounds strained.

    What RPG genre do you like the most?

    Hey, maybe I'm wrong. Just telling what I saw, what I remember.

    What RPG genre do you like the most?

    No, you're right, EPT and D&D came out the same year, but D&D did come out first. Forty year old memories are corrected by a quick Google search. The way I remember it, the box set came out, and everyone was thrilled with it. And then everyone started imitating it. So the late 70s and very...

    What RPG genre do you like the most?

    I'm still convinced that the main reason D&D became the dominant role playing game back in the 1980s was because TSR published so many pre-made adventures for it. It wasn't the first to market, or the best system, but it was the easiest to play because it took the least amount of work. If we...

    What RPG genre do you like the most?

    Well, to be fair, it's still in the idea phase, there isn't a whole lot on paper. When the family was deciding where to go after Temple of Elemental Evil, there were a few options: GURPS six-guns & sorcery, GURPS epic sci-fi, and Traveller, and Traveller won. So I didn't end up putting a ton of...

    What RPG genre do you like the most?

    Okay, I'll play. If I close my eyes and dream of the campaign I want to play in...well, that would be Traveller OTU with a healthy dose of action movie. But, I haven't played in a game since high school, I've been a GM and only a GM for the last 35 years. So, oh well, moving on. I've run...
