Review – Rogue Trader: Hostile Acquisitions

By on April 2, 2016 in Game Reviews with 0 Comments

Everyone who I’ve played Rogue Trader with has skirted Imperial rule at best and obviously flown in the face of it at worst. Now, they finally have the ability to take alternate career ranks in just the type of criminal they have always wanted to be. More than that, the book describes what exactly a […]

Review – Ashen Stars

By on January 25, 2016 in Game Reviews with 0 Comments

This is another amazing success from Pelgrane Press. The GUMSHOE engine provides the basis for the game, but it’s so different from the previous games like Fear Itself or Trail of Cthulhu. The game is set in a universe where a powerful alien race was set to destroy the known races of the galaxy, who […]

Review – Rogue Trader Koronus Bestiary

I love Rogue Trader, but don’t have the time to generate my own Xenos nor do I want to hand-wave too much in order to preserve balance. This book provides me with all the nasties and big bads I need to punish, er, challenge my players. It’s 146 pages of pure sadistic delight. It’s organized […]

Notice I didn’t use the word “zombie” in the previous sentence. That’s for […]

And now time for something completely different . . .

By on July 24, 2015 in Notes From the Dungeon Master with 0 Comments

Let me start by saying I’ve noticed a trend to speak more to #GMproblems in our posts. I’ll try to maintain some balance though because let’s face it, by default, there are probably more players than GMs out there. Free entrepreneurial opportunity, make a game with one player and 4-5 GMs. You’re welcome. Anyway, back […]

Six is Company, Seven’s a Crowd? (Part 1)

By on June 27, 2015 in Notes From the Dungeon Master with 0 Comments

My ever more enjoyable Star Wars: Edge of the Empire game recently required a tough vote by the group whether to add another player. But Neil, don’t you WANT more players in the game? The more the merrier, right? In a lot of gaming groups, I’d say ABSOLUTELY! But most game groups I’ve been in […]
