Would anyone be interested in a full-color Revised Expanded edition of BareBones Fantasy? It would include errata and tweaks from lessons learned over the years of playing since release, as well as be an all-in-one hardbound rulebook with the officially released new spells, new skills, guidelines, select races from Flesh & Blood. Maidens of Moordoth (with a couple tweaks I've become fond of after running it two dozen times or so). Contents of the Keranak Kingdoms book.»Read more
Okay - I'll concede. The BareBones spellcaster can be a bit powerful when it comes to offensive strike. I've heard this for the last couple of years and have defended it. Partially because it's our game, but partially because I honestly didn't think it was overpowered. But where there is smoke there is fire, and it's time to analyze the power level objectively. I'll assess Offensive Strike, which is the only I hear the most complaints about, and be honest about my findings. Then I'll go through all the spells and similarly give my opinion.»Read more
Nikodemos Stavros is a man with an evil agenda and a huge bankroll. His plans are to destabilize national economies in major nations, to pave the way for an economic takeover by citadel.
This mission spans the globe, from a remote fortified island to a luxury yacht, to investigate the extent of Stavros’ plans. Opportunities abound for firefights, stealth, speedboat chases, even wearing tuxedos and infiltrating a high society affair. Although designed as a sequel to operation: burning presidents, this mission can be run alone as well.»Read more
Bill, Tristam, and I are entering our second day at Grand Con. Saturday went very well, we had full sessions of Dunjonworx and Salvage Ops, Did a Bare Bones character creation session, and then played an impromptu gaming session with Doug Kilmer, his son, and his friend, as well as David Frees from GameFace Publishing. Everyone seemed to have a good time. Bill, TC, and I worked on two new games(both in the very early stages), and hit the sack pretty late. Hopefully day two goes as well.
Heading to Michigan's GrandCon this weekend with Mark and Tristam. Wanted to run some RPGs, but I registered too late and couldn't get any 4-hour blocks. I did, however, get some shorter blocks. Here's the schedule, I hope to see you there!!
NOTE: I am bringing Agents of SECTOR and Merchant's Bay as well, though I wasn't able to get approvals for time slots. I can play it with whoever is interested, and if I get enough interest I can run an impromptu game of Covert Ops and/or BareBones Fantasy in the evening, as I'm staying at the con hotel.
