Examining High Level Play: Part One

November 16, 2010


Part one of a two-part post by me looking at high-level play in RPGs went live today at Stargazer’s World. In it I namecheck multiple games, such as Nobilis, Amber Diceless, Exalted, Mage: the Ascension and of course D&D Immortals, looking at different aspects of high-level play.

October 29, 2010


Roland’s player was occupied watching his young niece, so Templar and Kina squared off in a hand-to-hand sparring match. In the first round, as they closed with each other, they rolled matching initiative totals. We interspersed their attacks, but Templar quickly discovered that though he possessed the knowledge and skill to strike vulnerable spots (Mystic […]

The Campaign Begins

October 26, 2010


The first session of the Immortals campaign began with the PCs waking up to blackness.

Project Status Updates

October 11, 2010


With a couple projects coming close to fruition, I thought now might be a good time to talk about what’s going on. In no particular order: Resolute, Adventurer and Genius is ready for playtesting.

Return of the Immortals

September 30, 2010


I really ought to be working on Resolute, Adventurer & Genius. We’re ready to playtest, and with the addition of some paranormal foes and a GM ideas section the base draft will be finished. I’m feeling a bit burnt out, though, so I’m slowly giving in to an urge that has been building for a […]
