Winter may be almost over, but the Snow Witch doesn’t care!

Though Spring may just be around the corner, we at Moebius Adventures just quietly released a new adventure to celebrate the colder months. Sure, things are thawing and we didn’t see a ton of snow here along the Front Range of Colorado — but that doesn’t mean that in fantasy realms everywhere there’s a pissed…

Alternate Cantrips in 5th edition (Guest post by William C. Pfaff)

My man Brian Fitzpatrick is seeking some balance between 5E (and 4E’s) at-will damaging cantrips and the poor wizard of yesteryear who would cast sleep and then beg the party to do the same so he could get his lone spell back. I gave this some serious thought and then realized the answer may be…

Revisiting the Past: Insight Checks in OSR

Anybody used to playing older versions of D&D (pre-4e) is probably wondering what the heck an Insight check is. Imagine for a moment that your PC is interacting with a NPC and you want to know whether the NPC’s motives are pure. Are they lying to you? Are they hiding something? Are they being forthright?…

Infinite Loop: June 2016

Shockingly, I’m actually doing a monthly report promptly this month! Don’t tell anybody! What did we do in June? We blew up the Internet and had the best month for Moebius Adventures ever. Seriously. Web traffic. Sales. And response by the community was simply phenomenal. Vince and I both thank you! On June 3, 2016…

What makes a good spell?

Magic is such an intrinsic part of much of the fantasy genre that I decided to pull together a few thoughts on what it is that makes a spell a spell. Though most of what I’ve been writing is aimed at Mazes & Perils these days, I usually play 5e or 4e D&D with my main…

Denizens in the Dark

We’ve talked a bit about the physical properties of dungeons, but what happens when we need to populate those structures with inhabitants? Last week I brought up the idea of the original “purpose” for the dungeon and I’d like to expand on that a little. Let’s take the history of an old dungeon as an example……

AetherCon 2015 – A Report

So there was no Friday post last week because I spent the day at AetherCon 2015! This is the second year that Moebius Adventures has helped out in some way or another. Last year I helped with an interview in the program, hosted a couple of panels, and did a Q&A panel for Moebius with…

The Lost Age – They Came From the Lake, Session 2

Wow. I love starting holiday weekends off with a bang. And gaming with friends and all their kids (9 players plus yours truly) was a ton of fun! You can read about the first session here… In the Beginning… We started this session where the last one ended, batting clean-up on the beach after saving…

The Snake’s Heart and 5e

This weekend I had an opportunity to possibly run The Snake’s Heart for my home gaming group as a D&D 5e session. Though I have played 5e two or three times (with my kids and some friends of the family), it’s been a while. This gave me an opportunity to dust off the Player’s Handbook,…

Most recent RPG purchase – #RPGaDAY 2014, Day 4

So far we’ve hit the first RPG I’ve played, the first RPG I game mastered, and the first RPG I purchased. You already know far too much about the early days of my gaming career and yet we’re just getting started. 🙂 Day 4 of #RPGaDay asks about my “most recent RPG purchase” and that’s…
