    Was there ever a ‘Sherlock Holmes RPG’ back in the day (80’s) ?

    The old Consulting Detective series has been continued. I had the first 2? or 3? sets. The first was in a box or perhaps a stiffened envelope and subsequent cases in a stiffened envelope. I recently acquired the new FBI one from Space Cowboys. Great production quality although I have yet to get...

    Online Play - Video?

    I use video with all my on-line games as it makes it easier to see who is talking and see reactions otherwise you might as well be playing a text only game.

    DTRPG and Lulu?

    Whenever I've done stuff for Lulu it has self calculated the width of the spine based off the number of pages. The issue is that the cover has to be big enough to wrap around. No use making the cover 2xA4 if the number of pages says you need to make it wider. I just stretch the cover picture...

    Dead tree supply chain issues?

    In the UK I've used Lulu for POD, same as Design Mechanism use. I've also used Aeon games for TDM stuff as well as they provide the pdf quickly whereas getting one from TDM if using Lulu involves mailing TDM with the recipt info.

    What are y'all up to these days?

    I spent 1992 to 2009 not role playing due to cirumstances (Usually no group and in places difficult to find gamers) but once back in the UK found a local club and started again. This kind of hiatus happens a lot due to life but you come back to gaming eventually.

    What do you- yes you, personally- prep for a session?

    Just about to start a game of Mythic Babylon on Sunday on Foundry. Prep involved reading not only the rule book but freshening up my knowledge of core rules. Planning out a scenario (making notes of a couple of ideas as I usually wing most of it). Putting a few maps into Foundry and adding a...

    I'm in the process of rejigging this for Mythras as the area and period fits people fleeing from the fall of Constantinople. The convrsion is not a exact one but more taking the flavour and plot and revising it for Mythras.
