Feedback – an apology

My apologies if you’ve tried to send feedback via the contact us section of the blog, there seems to have been some problem that has prevented me from receiving notifications where this part of WordPress is concerned. I think that I’ve now got the problem worked out and have responded to the messages that I could […]

Abridged Videos?

Unfortunately, during the last session of our Rose of Westhaven campaign a windows update related hitch meant that–whilst the players could hear me during the session–none of my audio actually made it onto the live-stream, obviously this is a bit of a problem for a game where an RPG where the GM does the scene-setting, describes […]

Alas for the Awful Sea: Session Notes

On Saturday 13th January I ran a one-shot of Alas for the Awful Sea, a Powered by the Apocalypse game from Storybrewers Roleplaying. The game focuses on the strife and struggle for survival in 19th century coastal towns. If you’re interested in watching the actual-play video you can find it here: One of the things that […]

Dresden Files Accelerated – The Motor City Files

3Brothers Character Overlays

Inspired by the excellent overlay template that Andre Martinez made for the Tides of Change group (and that I have used extensively) I decided to try and make something similar for the characters in my 3Brothers Campaign:

Getting started for my D&D game – The Welsh Piper

As with many things in life (and as someone in my workplace has just remarked to me) when one door closes another often opens, and although the door has closed (well, shut a little bit) on Star Wars, at least for my regular Sunday group, although I’ll still be running one-shots and trilogies in a […]

Complete Graveyard Shift

Just ran a very enjoyable session of Edge of the Empire for a group of great players (most of whom I’ve not had the pleasure of gaming with before), the session was titled ‘Graveyard Shift’ and focussed on a group of smugglers who had been hired to take some colonists on a pilgrimage to the […]

Idea for Star Wars planning

As is often the case with my campaigns I’ve found the notes for my Jadepunk game (and this post is mainly about Star Wars so stay with me here) getting more and more expansive, necessitating more time to update them and making them a little bit more unwieldy to use; as someone who has a fairly […]
