CnC Middle Earth

Posted by Adaen of Bridgewater on October 14, 2010

Middle Earth MapAwesome thread on the Troll Lord Games Forum discussing adapting Castles & Crusades to the Middle Earth setting. It started a few years ago, but it keeps coming back….Troll Lord Games :: View topic – C&C Middle Earth. One could use a lot of the material for adapting any game to Middle Earth….

New Players

Posted by Adaen of Bridgewater on June 3, 2010

When adding new players to a new gaming group, it can be good, bad, or both. I’ll tell you….we’ve had some rather interesting characters (meaning interesting players actually) over the years. This blogpost by Samuel Van Der Wall seems to touch on a  lot of that.

I live….again

Posted by Adaen of Bridgewater on June 2, 2010

I  live…..again.  OK folks. I’ve officially arrived at a decision. I’m returning to the “active GM” chair. No more just tinkering with mechanics. I’ll aim my tinkering to a specific game/group. And it won’t be for a planned out, extensive campaign. It will be for a one-shot…just to play. That one-shot may grow into something bigger, but for now I’m aiming for a one-shot game. Details to follow…..but as a teaser, I’m thinking some Atlantean Fantasy goodness is in order.

[As an aside, I really need to trim the number of categories I have…..jeesh.]

ZeFRS

Posted by Adaen of Bridgewater on May 10, 2010

ZeFRSRemember the original Conan RPG from the 80’s? So do these guys and it is magnificent! They’ve scrubbed this S&S classic of all the Conan intellectual property and represented Zeb Cook’s most excellent game as “Zeb’s Fantasy Roleplaying System” or “ZeFRS”. You’re welcome!

Cyclopedia + Forgotten Realms Original Set = Awesomeness

Posted by Adaen of Bridgewater on March 10, 2010

Doc Rotwang recently posted on his blog, I Waste The Buddha With My Crossbow: The Voices Are Whispering Their Strange Maths To Me, about using the most excellent D&D Rules Cyclopedia with the Forgotten Realms setting….from the original Boxed Set.

I loved that set….it was from a simpler time before the power escalation, Time of Troubles crap-fest. Don’t get me wrong, I liked playing Baldur’s Gate, but somehow the storyline that preceded it and all the canon material that’s been built up over the years is a bit much.

He goes on to flesh out some specifics  on what his game will be about.…Rotwang, always the master mixer, is bringin’ some Swashbuckling to Sembia. It sounds like a fun game. Thanks for the inspiration, good Doctor!

I’m setting up a game with my kids and grabbed those very materials….not so much for the rules really (my kids are 3 and 5), but more for inspiration (and pictures for the kids). We’ll be using some simpler, off-the-cuff rules in our game….and it looks like ours will feature pixies….I’ll be posting more on this later.
