Runeslinger’s Edge of Empire: Legacy of Destruction

I’ve just finished playing in another Edge of the Empire session run by Runeslinger; playing with Andre (who runs his own game Tides of Change) from the Brigade and two of Runeslinger’s regular face-to-face players; our motley crew consisted of:

Structured Aspects

I’ve been thinking a lot about aspects recently as I’m starting to consider what is going to go in my PWYW PDF ‘All About Aspects’, at the same time I’ve also been thinking about submitting a pitch to the Fate Codex, in their writers guidelines they claim to be looking for: Quick Start Adventures that […]

The Importance of Feedback in RPGs

No-one starts off as the world’s best GM, when I think of how truly shocking that very first game of WFRP I ran was I give a little shudder, but at the time we all had fun and we learned a lot from that first game; I always say to people that there’s nothing wrong […]

Useful links page updated

I have just finished updating the useful links page to contain links to the Fate hacks that I have stored on my Google Drive.

How many games can you actually run?

Have you ever had one of those ideas that seemed like a brilliant one at the time, but then in the cold light of day, maybe not so much? I’m sure we all must have done right? Well I had one the other day, it was late, must have been nearly midnight, i’d got up […]

Out with the old and in with the new…

…logo that is. Don’t panic, Red Dice Diaries will still be bringing you your daily doses of Tabletop RPG goodness, with the new website and new stuff I have coming up for the channel in 2015/16 I wanted to symbollise that we’re moving forward and evolving; I’m pretty much in love with the theme that […]

1000 subscribers on Youtube

I’m pleased to announce that my Red Dice Diaries Youtube Channel has now reached 1000 subscribers (it actually reached it last night, as of time of writing i’m slightly over); I do intend to record a proper thank you video incorporating some suggestions from members of the RPG Brigade (previously the Youtube RPG Brigade, the […]

Could the EoE dice be used in Fate?

As a massive fate-head one of the signs that I love a new system is if I immediately think ‘how could I convert it or some of the mechanics to run in Fate?’ So I played Edge of Empire for the first time earlier today (you can see the video of the hangout here), great […]
