GV(Gaming Vitae): An Interesting Concept

So what is a Gaming Vitae or GV? A GV is just like a Curriculum Vitae (CV) or resume, but of the games you have played or run over the years. This concept was created, by my knowledge, by Brian Fitzpatrick. (Fitz offered his own GV here.) It is something that some of us who…

The GM’s Corner: Lessons Relearned Gaming with Kids

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I had the opportunity to play with not one, but two different groups of kids at the game table and it proved to be quite interesting. This is a bit of a break from the articles I’ve been writing lately, but I think it’s important. Group #1 The first group played…

A getting out there challenge!

I am not sure how many people have not done this already, but… Camping and roleplaying! Yes, I know to some people this must sound crazy. Camping is fun. Roleplaying is fun. What is not to like? Maybe start small by having a session in a tent. Get the person who owns the biggest tent…

Battling Complacency or Unhappiness at the Game Table

Today we’re taking a little break from the magical worlds we’ve been visiting and instead talking about the real world of the game table – which can be virtual or physical, funny enough. But what do I mean about complacency? Unease? What are you talking about Fitz? Well, let me explain. I recently had a…

Session 0 in action!

This post could also be called “How we got to Session 0!” I probably should have started with this but – oh well. I was not sure if people would want the story behind the stories at first. Thanks to some feedback, I am adding this part in. I essentially ran Session 0’s as we…

Second Chances and Easter Wishes from Moebius Adventures

Though I’m not a religious person, I feel that it’s as much about second chances and hope for an uncertain future as anything else, which is not lost on me. (Where the bunny comes into it…

Memorable character death – #RPGaDay, Day 13

This is going to be a weird #RPGaDay entry, so I apologize in advance. But I need to process a few things and the topic for today “Most memorable character death” hits close to home. (Missed yesterday, but I think you’ve seen some of the old games I still go to on a regular basis,…

How’s Them Road Apples?

As a player I often wondered how much time we actually spent on the road between locations. In some campaigns we seemed to ALWAYS be on horseback or foot, camping by the roadside, holed up in some creepy inn, or stuffed in the stacked hammocks aboard a ship… We never really complained all that much,…

Book Review: Open Game Table: The Anthology of Roleplaying Game Blogs, Volume 2

When I reviewed Open Game Table: The Anthology of Roleplaying Game Blogs, Volume 1 back in October 2009, I felt it was a monumental and worthwhile compilation of game material from around the blogosphere. Jonathan Jacobs somehow managed to do everything from curating the articles to having the book printed and available. The result was…
