Real Estate in the Universe

The universe is a big place. As Douglas Adams once wrote, mindbogglingly so. But the thing it doesn’t lack is space. The commute may kill you, but there’s an infinite number of places to hang your hat if you look hard enough. Here on Earth, we’re running out of room in a lot of the…

Religion in the Dominion

It was once said that there are no atheists in foxholes and I suspect the same might be said of being a spacefaring race. Though Aliens & Asteroids may be set a couple of centuries in the future, I suspect that our need to call on a higher power in a time of need may…

Announcing Mazes & Perils Deluxe!

When role-playing games got their start in the 1970s, heroes were made of stronger stuff than today or they tended to suffer horrible deaths in the face of less forgiving dungeons. That was just the way of things and I remember rolling up new characters frequently in the early 1980s when my own exposure to…

Second Chances and Easter Wishes from Moebius Adventures

This past Sunday was Easter Sunday, a wandering Spring holiday celebrating the resurrection of Christ in the Christian faith. 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…

First RPG Purchased – #RPGaDAY 2014, Day 3

The third day of the #RPGaDAY effort is about “First RPG Purchased.” After the last two days of posts, I’ll give you one guess which RPG was my first attempt at being a game master…  D&D of course. But I think the first complete RPG I bought was the James Bond 007 box set. And I think I found it…

RPG Blog Carnival: Life and Death in RPGs… – Pt. 1 – Life

This month’s RPG Blog Carnival topic is Life and Death in RPGs (see here for the kickoff article) and shockingly enough in the insanity of my last few weeks, I have some ideas to share… Let’s start with Life, and then we’ll work on Death in the next post. For me, “life” in RPGs is…

Looking for a Gaming Group… [Cross-post]

(I’m cross-posting this from my personal portal blog…) Do you live in Colorado Springs, CO? Do you have a gaming group? Or are you looking for one? I’m looking for a group that I can play tabletop roleplaying games with and possibly GM a campaign using the rules for Warrior, Rogue, and Mage in my…

How to Extend Rituals in WR&M

With a Divine spellcaster, the magical energy used to achieve an effect is channeled through the caster’s faith in a supernatural force. This force can be as straightforward as believing in a deity or more open-ended or philosophical such as the belief in a cosmic consciousness, the spirits of nature, or the ghosts of ancestors…
