This post has taken a lot longer than expected, delayed by medical testing that was like a black hole sucking in time. And there’s more of it to come, I’m afraid… The story so far… This is the third in a set of mini-posts that I’m writing and publishing as quickly as possible, something I’m […]

The story so far… This is the third article in this series, and the second of a set of mini-posts that I’m going to be writing and publishing as quickly as possible, something I’m calling a mini-blitz. My normal publication schedule will resume at the end of the series. Each post will examine one of […]

 On The Priorities Of Graphic Depiction 1

Category: Game Mastering, Metagaming & Metagame Theory, Mike

A False Start Last week, I was discussing an image that I had composited for the pulp campaign with my co-GM. I made an off-hand remark about how justified I felt about expending the time and effort on the image. He agreed, positing that the greater the demands on the imagination of a scene, the […]

 Selling The Adventure: marketing for GMs

Yesterday, I was browsing around in an online digital music store when I came across an Album that I would most certainly have purchased much sooner if I had known that it existed. This is one of the major problems that has beset the music industry over the last twenty or so years. The Drake […]

 Attitude to Burn: Blog Carnival June 2022

Attitude and Intensity We all have NPCs who are more driven than most, more obsessed or more sassy. This is never as easy as it sounds. We all have to raise our voices a little just to be heard clearly from all parts of the gaming table. Simply employing the “intense whisper” for the dialogue […]

Category: Campaign Creation, Cyberpunk, D&D / Pathfinder

This was intended to be part of a single, self-contained article – but the more I look at it, the more inevitable it seems that what did happen, would happen. Make sure you’ve read Part 1 before continuing! I intend to dive straight in and pick up exactly where I left off, but first, there’s […]

 Charisma: A Lovely Little Dump Stat?
Posted: Mon, 09 May 14:23:57
Category: Campaign Creation, Campaign Management, Combat

While introducing the players to the characters for the chase mechanics playtest a couple of weeks ago, I found myself ruminating on (of all things) the Charisma stat and what it represented.

It took so much longer to plan out the article that I intended to publsh today, and it contains so many sections that I hasd grave doubts that I could finish it in time. Rather than risk having nothing to post in what is already shaping up to be a very busy week, I decided […]
