    The Land of Ta: Setting Inspiration by way of an Internet Mystery

    Were they obscure? They were pretty popular in my area.

    The Land of Ta: Setting Inspiration by way of an Internet Mystery

    Yeah, I mainly associate it with my grandmother (whose father was Scottish, now I think about it).

    The Land of Ta: Setting Inspiration by way of an Internet Mystery

    I somehow ended up with a huge collection of Smurf toys when I was living in Kuwait, and I came up with some vast Tolkieneque backstory for them. Then I saw the cartoon after moving to the States, and that was the end of that. It means "thanks" in Australia.

    Far West 7th Anniversary

    What does that even mean for Kickstarter to cancel it? Call up Skarka and tell him he isn't allowed to make the game? Skarka seems to be doing just fine at cancelling it all on his own.

    OSR & RPG Zines

    It prompted me to order print copies of both issues. Fantastic stuff. Good customer service too. I haven't gotten the print copies yet, but Ben emailed me yesterday to let me know that someone else had just gotten some copies that were damaged and he wanted me to be sure to contact him for...

    What are y'all up to these days?

    It's always hard not getting an answer on what is going with a health issue. Sorry to hear your weekend took such a rough turn.

    If you had to choose one edition of D&D....

    I started with D&D B/X, but as a new, inexperienced gamer, I never ran or played a proper campaign of it before moving on to other games entirely. My experience ten years ago and revisiting the game was really the first time I gave it a fair shake, so I don't think nostalgia can be the reason...

    Mythras/Lyonesse: Coddefut's Stipule, Now Available!

    I need to break out my hardbacks to freshen up on it now the game seems to be near completion.

    (rant) "Your Best Game Ever" has me much more bummed than I should be

    It's also pretty standard with kickstarters to send out the PDF version to backers before printing so you get a lot of proofreading for free. Either they didn't do that, or they randomly sent some earlier version of the PDF to the printers. I don't know if this will hurt them too badly in...

    Dolmenwood & Necrotic Gnome Productions

    Backers have been given the main PDFs on DriveThru (not the Advanced book yet), and they are gradually getting updated with more art over time. I'm not sure if pre-orders involve the same set-up.

    Dolmenwood & Necrotic Gnome Productions

    Yeah, and I have no shortage of quality gaming material to entertain myself with until then as well. Still, I am really looking forward to that book.

    Okay. I think I can manage that. Then the wait for the Dolmenwood book begins...

    What are you doing? You are making a purchase that is fantastic in itself, but also sure to be supported by more fantastic products from Necrotic Gnome in the near future. Cast all doubt from your mind! I've been following all your previews so far. I don't know whether to thank you for doing a...

    ENnies 2019 voting is now open + ENnies Dream Date auction on eBay!

    Yes. involvement of judges makes it more likely that I will actually learn about a new game. Popularity contest awards tend to bring attention to games that everyone already knows about. The Ennies actually seem to be somewhere in between. They aren't that democratic as the judges' provide...

    To wite it up or not to write it up

    To add to this, if you do it as a blog, try and have all your early entries present something about your setting this is a clear playable hook. People can start coming to your blog for bite-sized ideas and gradually acquire a taste for the setting around them. Over time, you can afford to slip...

    What Besides Palladium would you run TMNT in?

    I'm still using Explorer's Edition. I'm a Savage Worlds grognard. I'll probably pick up SWADE when my next buying splurge comes around.
