Dark Heresy – playtest review

February 1, 2010 – 9:39 am

Warhammer 40k, maybe you can describe the setting itself best with one word, as the ultimate Dystopia. 41st millenium and humankind had gained a lot in technology over the time but even more have they forgotten. If you’re not familiar with the setting, I’m sure you find 1001 pages like the wh and wh40k lexicanum. […]

Blog-game (the next chapter)

January 26, 2010 – 11:33 pm

The advantage of keeping blogs in my reader even if I never meet the people again is, every once in a while when I’m having a little bit of time, it’s really hard – not – to find a game of creative idea in a blog. Put your music player on shuffle. Press forward for […]

Talarian and the misty swamps [pt. 1]

January 25, 2010 – 1:50 pm

There are these special characters in the life of a roleplaying-gamer. When you first play them you know they are so very enjoyable, when you share them they’re almost everytime good for some smiles or laughter and you know you’re going to have some fun even before the adventure really starts… Talarian (black) circle mage […]

Quickreview: Dr. Parnassus

January 7, 2010 – 10:51 am

The Imaginations of Doctor Parnassus, maybe to be subtitled with “in memorial Heath Ledger” was yesterday’s pre-premiere at our local cinema and I was curious. I started headfirst into the movie, only having a (very) rough idea of what this all was about, feeling quite comfortable with the german translation of the title which hinted […]

I hit AC 16 and do 11 damage…

November 12, 2009 – 8:00 am

…or – howto improve your combat experience It’s probably 15 years ago, when we played a lot of games after school and on weekends. Back then we were pretty inexperienced and it was a different – drive. When I was younger, I think most of us were powermongers in one or more ways. Mostly it […]

The Pinnacle

November 11, 2009 – 6:00 am

Playing dungeon master in roleplaying games on a regular base is something that will take you from the lowest depths of the Abyss, Baator, Hell, Hades and the Grey Wastes of Gehenna right to the top of Mount Celestia, the Heavens, Arcadia and all the other planes you can, or can not (yet) think of.

Recent developments

November 9, 2009 – 11:19 am

It’s been a while since the last update of this blog. I guess it was more like a vacation from writing and focussing on other things. When blogging became more of a necessity than actual fun, I thought it was a good time to make a full-stop. With my sundaily gaming group things are going […]

Linearity of Games

May 19, 2009 – 12:42 pm

In the recent games in which I had the joyful part of dungeon mastering, I’ve had feedback of too many choices, too many opportunities and not enough direct linear goals (milestones) to achieve. Giving this a little thought it turns out to be a very basic necessity for many gaming groups and might be something […]

Latizan and Zord – one world and a lot of adventures

April 30, 2009 – 10:47 am

A nice concept you might want to try… With Roman and Thomas we got two dungeon masters that started working on a greater plan, the three of us decided to start a few simultaneous story-lines interwoven with each other, some characters knowing a few from the other group, maybe interchanging them from time to time. […]
