Novarium is a troupe-style roleplaying game set in a unique fantasy world called Vaena.

This was a last ditch ploy from the [...]

There have been some titanic struggles by various theory folks to nail down what an RPG “is” over the years. There was a lot of discussion on the Forge, and some people disliked it so much that “forge-speak” became a term of derision for theoretical analysis that was so obtuse as to confuse rather than [...]

The past month has seen quite a few retrospective posts from a variety of people that I am connected to in the RPG community. Some of it reflective on D&D, some of it reflective on independent game design, some on social media. I feel the necessity to put down my strategy for the new year [...]

Some might consider this a bit early to conduct a year in review. But it is on my mind and I am going to go ahead and knock it out of the way early. This year has seen some pretty amazing stuff for me. At this time in 2010, Errant was not even released yet [...]

Alright, here is the first glimpse at the dramatic resolution system that I came up with to model Star Wars. I know this is probably painfully light on details for some of you, but I don’t want to give away the store just yet. Share this:Facebook

For a while, I have felt that none of the Star Wars RPG systems that exist really capture the essence of Star Wars. Despite being branded Star Wars, I felt like they weren’t any more applicable to Star Wars than GURPs was. No element of the design really spoke to what I feel is the [...]
