Hex Games As you can see, we've redesigned the Hex web site for the first time in quite a while. With the new version of the site, we've tried to account for the new ways people use gaming websites in the age of social media, which means getting rid of things like the dedicated forums that for the last few years have mainly only served as bait for spammers. We've also done our best to integrate the site with things like Facebook and Twitter. The slider on the right edge of page points to our social media pages (mouse over to see our latest posts) and the one on the left lets you share content on popular sites. We've completely upgraded our web store, most importantly by making print editions of many of our PDFs available here for the first time (with more coming soon). We built the new site from scratch, so you'll need to create a new user account even if you had one before. Enjoy the new site!
Gulf Roleplaying M-Force Le trollball, jeu drôle «Waagh!» Le cri retentit encore que je me suis déjà jeté en avant, filant d'un trait jusqu'au milieu du terrain, mon épée en main. Une dizaine de mètres plus loin, la chorégraphie est la même pour tout le monde: le freinage brusque, les muscles qui se tendent, le va-et-vient incessant que font nos yeux du visage de l'adversaire à l’arme qui se balance au bout de son bras. publicité «Vlan!» Nous sommes dans le hall 5 du Palais des expositions de Villepinte, c'est la Japan Expo/Comic Con, «festival des cultures geek» organisé du 5 au 8 juillet, et je viens de perdre ma première manche de trollball. Un sport issu des jeux de rôle grandeur nature J’en avais entendu parlé depuis quelques temps et le pitch faisait envie: réparties de part et d’autre d'une surface à peu près équivalente à un terrain de basket (grosso modo 30 mètres sur 15), deux équipes en armure se jettent l’une contre l’autre dans l’espoir d’aller aplatir une tête de troll dans l’autre camp. Deuxième manche. Olivier Clairouin

Project: Redcap Characters with Character: Random Personality Generator If you're enjoying the content here, check out our new site, Thoughtcrime Games. Thanks for visiting! If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! I don’t know about you but when I sit down for a one-shot game with a pregen character, I can’t always come up with a unique and interesting personality on the fly. Using the Generator is a snap. Motivation: What is it that really gets your character’s motor running? Instinct: What is your character’s first reaction to a threat (physical or otherwise)? Approach: What archetype is your character best known for being? Now just because every character in D&D is combat-capable does not necessarily make them all warrior-type personalities. Carrion, Tiefling Earth WardenMotivation 3 (Information); Instinct 4 (Protect Others); Approach 10 (Disciplined Commander) Though the city of Bael Turath stands in ruins, much of the Tiefling heritage lies buried ignobly around the Known World.

Ars Magica for d20 - JorWiki From JorWiki This site contains information about using the Ars Magica (ArM) 4th Edition magic system with the d20 System from Wizards of the Coast (most notably the system used for Dungeons and Dragons ). The Ars Magica magic rules are widely hailed as the best ever created, and seeking a more flexible magic system, I took a crack at adapting them for d20. Please note that this site is focused on converting the magic rules, not the entire Mythic Europe background, campaign and flavor (although the magic system draws much from these). It is my first humble attempt; I welcome (erik dot jordan at gmail dot com) all comments, feedback, and—in particular—ideas for improvement. Note that to use these rules, you will need to have a copy of both the Player's Handbook, 3rd edition, and the Ars Magica core rulebook 4th edition. First and foremost, the ArM Hermetic Mage is very powerful, and will end up dominating any campaign to which the class is added. Contents: Coming Soon: Important Links:
Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab: RPG The RPG Series Illustrations by the inimitable Julie Dillon. “You all meet at an inn.…” Pen and paper role-playing games have been a tremendous influence in my life since my formative years. My parents bought me the magenta D&D boxed set back in 1982, along with the Player’s Handbook, Dungeon Master’s Guide, and Monster Manual. My lifelong passion for fantasy, science fiction, war games, and mythology was well-channeled through RPGs, and I credit playing D&D with helping me sustain my imagination and sense of wonder through adulthood. I played with one particular group through the bulk of my late teens and early 20s, and this series — along with the atmosphere tools that Black Phoenix Trading Post has introduced — was inspired, specifically, by the time that we spent campaigning together. Pen and paper role playing games are, to me, dynamic stories that are propelled by the active participation of many individuals.
personales.ya Deck of Many Boons | STUFFER SHACK Wouldn’t it be cool if you could get some sort of benefit in-game for doing things that promote better gaming? I do. That’s why I hand-crafted the Deck of Many Boons. “Well what does it do” you ask? Thank you for asking! Only if you are serious about gaming, may you unlock its treasures. By the very nature of good and evil, yin and yang, dark and light, law and chaos, neutral and… neutral, the Deck of Many Boons will incite within you a systemic wave of karma – for the good you put into it, it gives good back to you. Behold! You shall draw one card from the Deck of Many Boons, should you perform the following: Arrive to the game session on time, ready to play In addition, every player at the table shall draw one card from the Deck of Many Boons, should any of the players perform the following: These cards that you now possess in your possession are not to be hoarded! Behold! Behold!
Gaming on the tabletop As much as I love video games, my gaming life is not complete without regular visits to the tabletop. And last Friday, I teamed up with nearly 40 like-minded souls to indulge in a day-long celebration of gaming’s oldest platform organised by the Gulf Roleplaying Community (GRC) at a villa in Al Barsha 2. It’s a low-tech, high creativity approach for people who like to create their own games and characters, who find their imaginations have a higher resolution than any console, or who feel constrained by the half-dozen dialogue options in a modern computer RPGs. Dice clatter. Players push miniature figurines and cardboard counters into place, as others roar threats or try to talk their way out of problems – or into them. Players grin at their mistakes or groan as the dice go against them. Spontaneous laughs – even outright giggle attacks – are fairly common around a typical table. “It’s slowly growing, which is always a good sign,” said Esmail. What is tabletop gaming?
