Review on GKR: Brother Ptolemy and the Hidden Kingdom from Nevermet Press

Hi all… In case you missed it on my reviews blog, I wrote about Brother Ptolemy and the Hidden Kingdom over at Game Knight Reviews. Nevermet Press has put together a heck of a setting and adventure that would fit nicely into most of the D&D-based campaigns (4e or 3.5e really, though the book is…

Momentum, or a lack thereof…

So here I sit, wondering at what topics to address on this blog. The concept of Moebius Adventures is very much alive, and yet I have not released anything since the Core Rules book came out a couple of years ago.

Book Review: Martial Flavor – Chaotic Shiny Productions

When you look up the word “martial” in the dictionary, most definitions tend towards the use of a few key adjectives – warrior, warlike, or military.

Book Review: Filling the empty chair by Johnn Four (RoleplayingTips.com)

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…

RPG Review: Eureka: 501 Adventure Plots To Inspire Game Masters

Have you ever found a sandwich that’s so big, juicy, messy, and full of sandwichy goodness that you can’t figure out where to start eating it? That’s kind of what happened when I grabbed a copy of Eureka: 501 Adventure Plots To Inspire Game Masters by the authors of GnomeStew.com. This book should be like…

More thoughts about Typography, or the tools used to create it…

Image by voyageAnatolia.blogspot.com via Flickr Long title, I know… But basically I am wondering how we might take the small things, such as the method of writing, and use that in a game. And by “method” in this case, I’m thinking of the tools used to create the work. For example, were the letters painted onto…
