Actual play: Fiasco

We played our first game of Fiasco with four players. Three of us had played together before, but one of the players was new to the group and not too experienced with roleplaying in general, if familiar with the concept.

Actual play: Flying Lead

  A friend of mine started running a hybrid roleplaying and miniatures campaign based on a freeform mashup of Starship Troopers, Aliens and whatever else “space marine” and scifi cliches you care to mention. It’s doing something I’ve thought about

Mechwarrior Online (PC)

For years I’ve had Saitek Cyborg 3D USB Gold sitting right above me on the shelf, next to the desktop computer. It’s pretty hardcore. It comes with a hex key. It makes me feel somewhat superior to today’s kids. Who

Actual play: Deathwatch

Ever since I first encountered Warhammer 40 000 in the guise of the original Rogue Trader rulebook, I’ve been imagining what it would be like to play as a Space Marine. For some reason this was never realized, not before

How to run D&D 4E with minimum time investment

I have a background in running and playing (mostly running) tabletop roleplaying games for over twenty years. I consider myself highly skilled in gamemastering. My library of games covers pretty much everything in terms of style, mechanics and subject matter.

Dungeons & Dragons Essentials after a dozen games

I’ve been running a lot of D&D Essentials lately. I think it’s interesting to see how my initial expectations have fared against nine games into a campaign and a couple of off-shoots. I’ve ended up with a lot of stuff

I’ve praised D&D fourth edition’s skill challenges before, but they warrant some more love. Initially I dismissed the system – I thought it was just about Wizards branding the concept of rolling for a skill outside of combat or something.

Dungeons & Dragons: Running an epic fight against a dragon

We are now five sessions into our “In Exile” (“Maanpaossa” in Finnish) campaign, in which the players portray nobles and their servants who have fled their homeland, now trapped in civil war. It is very much back to basics D&D,

Power2ool: Better than paper

I started planning the D&D game I ran over the last weekend some years ago in a Moleskine notebook while on a cruise boat to Sweden. Since then I’ve iterated on the plan and written it up in Google Docs
