    An Ordinate List of Christian RPGs

    Regarding Kult, the gnosticism is clearly Abrahamic. Although originating well before Christ, it was prevalent in early Christianity and persists today. A Kult sourcebook goes as far as to list The Messiah and his cult followers. Its a very obvious reference to Jesus. There is also a very...

    cooperative games?

    We recently played the Lord of the Rings by Knizia. Fantasy Flight released an anniversary edition a couple years ago, I believe. It's a tough co-op game and I like the expansion we got for it. It's tough enough but when you have a kid that really wants to have the ring on each board (four...

    What is Political and Mod Direction

    It goes even deeper. Birds aren't real.

    Real Life and What's Happening...

    We did. I told my son to make a list of things he discovers he needs after he's moved in and settled. We're using that as an excuse to visit next Sunday for a drop off and check out more of Athens! If my son is smart, he'll come with us for a free meal because otherwise I'm ditching him...

    Real Life and What's Happening...

    I foolishly thought I could continue gaming and posting here a bit even after football started. I've been coaching football for the middle school which means I'm busy 6 days a week with practice, games, and coach's meetings. Thought I could still pull some tabletop fun but no chance. I did...

    What is Political and Mod Direction

    Devito is supposed to start filming Triplets, the sequel to Twins, with Arnie. Eddie Murphy will the the surprising third. I thought I was having a fever dream but no such luck.

    How far should a dungeon be from civilization?

    I typically consider Time rather than Distance. Greater distance merely increases the time so a close distance means the ability to reach it can be made harder to increase the time. Extreme terrain can explain why the danger doesn't immediately threaten civilization. I always like a dungeon...

    What is Political and Mod Direction

    This exactly how I've always felt about them. I had some friends think they 'sold out' when the Black album was released but it still felt true to their own sound. I could still see it in later albums a bit but each new album felt less and less like their original sound that made them stand...

    What is Political and Mod Direction

    I grew up on heavy metal and evolved my tastes as time went on. But I never skip past an old song by Creedence Clearwater Revival, Roy Orbison, Steppenwolf, and that whole generation because it triggers some sort of nostalgia being what my Midwest parents had playing when I was so very young on...

    WIP Solo Games

    I hadn't heard of this game before. It looks really great. I see an android app with the hex map. I think it would work for me better since my laser printer doesn't do color. I have to have color on my hex maps.

    What is Political and Mod Direction

    It appears we need a Limp Bizkit topic ban. No one should ever be exposed to these videos posted in this thread. I hope everyone gets a warning or worse.

    And so it begins. The Machines want revenge!

    I give my truck extra long soapy washes and my laptop gets flowers every Sunday.. just in case.

    First look at the new Dungeons & Dragons film

    The characters and plot sound real damn close to a beer and pretzels game I ran back when 3.5e was big. We had a blast so I'm hoping they were spying on us! Players really screwed over the world and went to fix it. Mix in cool fights, big laughs, and some mindless fun.. what can go wrong...

    Tables: bad or the worst?

    Referencing a decent table often seems easier than referencing many character sheets out there. A little amusing to me when it's a deal breaker.

    Skill Resolution Mechanic Poll

    You're very right. I didn't like the probability in Serenity RPG at all by the numbers. My comment about that rpg was meant as a helpful warning rather than saying to definitely not use it. There's also something to be said for mechanics where the players can make a good judgement of their...

    Skill Resolution Mechanic Poll

    I'd still be very careful about using Option 1 as it is very close to the Serenity Cortex mechanics (not Cortex+ or later versions). It is very easy to roll low... a lot! There was a high whiff factor every time I played it, which admittedly wasn't a huge amount. That was a big reason I used...

    Skill Resolution Mechanic Poll

    I made a game using something very similar to option 1 that I'm currently running with my group. You roll a default 1d10 along with a die that represents your skill (or attribute). I only use this because it's a true post-apocalypse game where no one is left with great expertise. It also...

    Hit Points or Wound Levels?

    I don't have anything against the death spiral having used them plenty. It doesn't happen to fit the type of game I'm running right now. I do think there can be a rough learning curve for players that are accustom to ever only using straight hit points. Besides that, it can sure teach players...

    Hit Points or Wound Levels?

    I always thought Palladium was onto something but didn't pull it off well. For my current game, I'm using hit points but they come in groupings I refer to as levels instead of using an MDC equivalent for hp. If you are struck by a grenade, hit by a car, or other major thing, you lose an entire...

    Real Life and What's Happening...

    I feel for you. Earlier this week, my wife told me they chose someone else over her for a huge promotion. She was the first choice of the whole panel except the guy who had to pull the trigger on the decision (a new boss that has no management experience at all). That guy's boss much...
