This may be a big ask, but is it possible for the fantasy and sci fi rules to be easily incorporated in the case of a Spectral Stalkers type scenario where the adventurers can go hopping through time and space (maybe a ZED spell).

Another thing, you could use this very easily for Star Wars, as every ship and vehicle has its length in meters published. Just grab an "Essential Guide to vehicles and Vessels", and you're off!

Thanks so much for this, and the previous post as well. I've been looking for something like this for my group that allows fast chargen, winging it as DM, and doesn't require me otcalculate the volume of geometric solids. I will definitely make use of this!

2013-06-22T21:29:39.802+01:00

I'm using the MERP stuff as fluff as it's the most detailed adventure-heavy stuff there is out there and perfect for what I want to do.

I did toy with trying to find a match between one of the Cthulhu deities and Sauron so that I could play around with him, but once I settled on running the game after the War of the Ring that was that. Still using the Sanity rules for when they come up against anything really evil or of the Shadow.

I do like the idea of replacing Sauron with one of the Cthulhu mythos deities. That would be a weird twist on the original. You'd probably then want to retool the orcs and ringwraiths into something more in line with the Cthulhu mythos. Thanks for the post!

2013-06-21T14:31:49.756+01:00

I still have all the old MERP stuff. They had the best maps and artwork, and I actually enjoyed playing with the single small rulebook, giving me as a GM much more flexibility on running things.

2013-05-28T13:37:09.550+01:00

It was really good, always constantly busy when I went past so I never got the chance to talk to anyone. They had everything there - I was tempted by the Primeval RPG and the first doctor sourcebook looked sweet.

2013-05-15T04:02:32.176+01:00

Does this means that each setting is a different planet? I am implying that the main setting is Starship Traveller where they travel different planet hence the different setting.

Is this one going to be a freebie? I'm assuming not but I thought I'd check. ;-)

I could not be more excited for our upcoming adventure. You were such a funny, gracious host! I, too, was desperately sad that I didn't live down the road, and couldn't pop into your kitchen tomorrow to pick your brain about backgrounds and lineage for my character. Thank you for such a fun evening!

Such a brilliant evening. It is great to spread the hobby out to those who always wanted to try it. It really is the only way it will survive!!

'I'll need to figure out some details, such as how a post-apocalyptic Earth ('Freeway Fighter') and a world where dinosaurs are herded by giant mecha ('Robot Commando') exist in the same universe.'

2013-03-24T08:34:19.434+00:00

My active involvement with D&D ended in around 1995, and I sold all my gear (so I thought) to gaming friends at uni.
Over Christmas, I found a lonesome Basic Rules Set 1 at my parents house (the red one) and my 8 yo expressed an interest this weekend. He has just read the PHB cover to cover, and now wants to 'start playing'. Unlike me at the same age, he has been playing Minecraft, Lego games on the Wii, and a plethora or popular culture movies and shows that have inculcated the basic premises of the game. He even understands 'encumbrance'! I would dearly like to find some other kids with whom he can play. And I'd love to be DM. If only I had the time!

2013-03-07T13:40:34.878+00:00

I don't know if I could stand my younger self in one of my games right now. Maybe when I first got into gaming when I was naive and wide-eyed, but late early 1990s I'd just want to punch myself in the face, pretentious little sod.

Hi Tom - sorry I didn't go more in depth than I did but I was concentrating more on the primary title. Looking forward to your future material as I enjoyed this one and will focus on it a bit more next time!

Thanks for the info, Jim, and thanks for putting out a quality comic.

2013-03-01T14:57:46.025+00:00

It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who gets introspective about my gaming past every once in a while. I just spent a while today writing a letter to my young gamer self for my blog. It was good fun to think back to what I was like back then, and know full well I would never listen to any of the advice I would give myself...



On my birthday as well - how nice of them ;)

Thank you for the short comment on 'The Lie'. It was well received and I have a new story for the up coming 'Amazing Tales' which Planet JimBot is publishing. New story is 'The Duke and the thief' which is part of my 'A Mischief of Devils' universe. I will be writing more in future issues.

Thanks for the wonderfully in-depth and insightful review. Artist Luke Cooper is currently working on Wolf Country #1, which should be out later in the year. Thanks again, JA.

2013-02-04T02:40:35.419+00:00

I have fond memories of ICE products (MERP, Rolemaster, and Spacemaster) back in the mid-80's. My gaming has fallen off but I passed all of my MERP material to my son in the USMC and he really enjoys them. I'm glad to see to see the recent revival of the company and it moving forward. Thank you for publishing the interview—time to start looking into picking some ICE products again. :)

That sounds like it could be interesting, with PCs not knowing what's real etc. I look forward to seeing it!
