The Pip Worlds community content program for Third Eye Games' Pip System RPG is now live! And that means my supernatural mystery adventure is now available on DriveThruRPG:

Seen on Ebay: a customized SNES with my #SecretofMana fan-art on it! 😍

@CarlCravens I knew that a lot of them came from mythology. It invigorated a healty interest in myth for me, but somehow the D&D versions of those monsters were slightly cooler.

@ScottMortimer There are several game instances, but I'm not asking for D&D. I've moved to other systems. :)

@mwlucas That's in part why I keep my Basic set around, but the community that D&D has engendered is a little... retentive when it comes to letting things breathe.

I think I've come to the realization that the one thing that I'm nostalgic about with Dungeons and Dragons is finding out about all of these creatures from mythology for the first time. That's it. (note: Not a request to fix this. I've done an admirable job of it, thank you.).

Any world-building that doesn't have at least three different calendars, and debates about the validity of each one is just lazy world-building.

@paulczege It was a little disconcerting if you weren't expecting it. Once I realized what was happening it was a little more tolerable.

@paulczege I think this was the conceit of Rule 34 and Halting State by Charles Stross (with the feel of an Infocom Interactive Fiction game).

@cy Shareing an idea does not deprive one of the idea. It means two people now have that idea. And giving love doesn't deprive someone else of that love. Perhaps suffering is being attached to the idea that gain means deprivation of another.

I did not need to suddenly find that I like the HeroQuest system. Yet, here we are.

We can all get much better when we realize that life (and games) are not all zero-sum games.

Resource management? Sure. But not zero sum.

Me: I really can't get into Glorantha

Also me: (buys one more supplement for Glorantha).

What is wrong with me?

The Ashcan version of Survival of the Able is now available. Pick up a copy to help support this game getting made.

It uses the Fudge RPG rules for a survival game about folks with disabilities surviving The Black Death in 1347.

Hope you'll check it out.

Looking for playing D&D-style games without playing D&D? Monsters and Magic with The Effect Engine might fit that bill:

@platypus I'm as big of an Atari and Rush fan as anyone and frankly I found that book more pandering than anything. I knw some folks who adore that book but it wasn't for me and unless someone was born in the 1970s I can't imagine why they would ever read that book voluntarily.
