<+SamuraiKale> Hi, everyone! My name is Kale Stutzman and I’m the owner of Samuraifight LLC. We’re doing a Kickstarter right now for a complete new game called Master of the Rogue Spire.
<+SamuraiKale> Here’s a link to it: (Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/samuraifightllc/master-of-the-rogue-spire-a-classic-fantasy-rpg)https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/samuraifightllc/master-of-the-rogue-spire-a-classic-fantasy-rpg
[NOTE: This is one of my earliest reviews from RPGnet, reposted here for convenient reference regarding the D6 System.]
As much as I liked the Star Wars movies, I’ve always shied away from the roleplaying game. I suppose I felt that, in the words of a friend, it’d be like “playing in someone else’s back yard”. But, after unsuccessfully trying to buy the second edition dirt-cheap on eBay, I figured, “Eh, what the Hell – let’s do this right!” So, without further ado, here’s my review of Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game, Second Edition – Revised and Expanded.
<+Polyhedralknight> Well I”m Mickey Barfield. I’m the lead designer at The Polyhedral Knights. We produced Spy, Pathogen Unclassified, Wicked Pacts and currenlty working on Dark Times
<+Polyhedralknight> Our project we are doing now is game related
<+TGI-Dragonfly> Hey! Yes, I’m back. Got distracted by my 11 month old.
<&Silverlion> Wicked Pacts is cool. What is “Unclassified?”
<+Polyhedralknight> I was approached by an actor and producer about IP on Pathogen Unclassified
<+Polyhedralknight> Unclassified is the story of what happened before Pathogen Unclassified. It is what caused the world to go to Hell in a handbasket
<+Polyhedralknight> Since I”m kind of a no body in Hollywood but Kevin and Andre seemed to really like what I did they talked to me about doing a Kickstarter for this. THey were hoping it would help fund the film they want to shoot. I wrote a screen play that they liked a lot
<+jeremyTangman> My name is Jeremy Tangman and I created a tabletop Steampunk rpg caled Avenadia.
<+jeremyTangman> Its a Steampunk rpg in which the world has fought back against its inhabitants in way of contamination. everything was contaminated most died and others mutated to survive.
<+jeremyTangman> So the survivors are left to creat a new society and caste system.
<+Ed_Jowett> Hi everyone, I’m Ed Jowett from Shades of Vengeance. It’s a pleasure to be back once again to talk about another of our amazing games!
<+Firlefanz> Hi Ed!
<+Ed_Jowett> I’m the lead game designer of SoV and I’m here today to talk about Era: Lyres – specifically the Definitive Edition Rulebook, which is currently on Kickstarter for the Make100 initiative.
<+Ed_Jowett> The link is here: (Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/shadesofvengeance/make100-era-lyres-definitive-edition?ref=5qxaon)https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/shadesofvengeance/make100-era-lyres-definitive-edition?ref=5qxaon
<+Ed_Jowett> Era: Lyres is a game about being an adventurer in a fantasy world.
<+Ed_Jowett> More precisely, it’s about NOT being an adventurer in a fantasy world – adventuring is dangerous, unsanitary and often boring!
<+Ed_Jowett> But adventurers get a lot of gold and glory when they return from their quests.
<+Ed_Jowett> So how do you get the gold and glory of being an adventurer without actually risking your life?
<+Ed_Jowett> Simple! You become a Lyre. Lyres tell stories of their “amazing adventures”, which “totally did happen” to eager audiences in Yarnolth.
<+Graham_ArionGames> Good evening all
<+Graham_ArionGames> I am Graham Bottley, founder of Arion Games.
<+Graham_ArionGames> We are based in the UK and have taken a fairly old school approach to RPG’s, republishing Advanced Fighting Fantasy and Maelstrom, both cult british games of the 1980s
<+Graham_ArionGames> Our latest Kickstarter is Maelstrom Rome
<+Graham_ArionGames> This takes the major revision of the original Maelstrom game that we published in 2014 (Maelstrom Domesday) and gives it the ancient Rome treatment
The name’s Davenport. I review games.
So the other day I’m sitting at my desk, just mindin’ my own business, when this fella in a black duster carrying a flaming sword steps outta this black cloud that smells like rotten eggs.
“You could at least say ‘excuse me’,” I says.
“Cute,” he says. “You Davenport?”
“Got a review job for you. A game of modern-day magic.”
He points at my desk, and a rulebook called Wicked Pacts appears. Out of a cloud of black smoke that smells like rotten eggs.
“Well,” I says, “I can already tell you that the game stinks.”
“Real funny,” he says. “Less comedy, more reviewing.”
