RPGaMonth: The Witch’s Song

RPGaMonth: The Witch’s Song

I have to admit, at first I wrote this adventure off. I was looking for something set a bit more southern Empire, and this adventure takes place near Marienburg. I slipped it back into the box and promptly ignored it until a couple months later when I was looking for something to read. It wouldn’t have hurt my game to pick this up and read it earlier. I also thought the small village setting might not have enough challenges for…

RPGaMonth: The Edge of Night

RPGaMonth: The Edge of Night

I was looking for a starter adventure to run before The Gathering Storm and this practically fell in my lap. It’s billed as an adventure, but there are a number of suggestions on how to turn it into a campaign. It has the same prerequisite as The Gathering Storm, so I won’t be using it as a starter adventure. Also, it’s far more socially driven than I’m currently comfortable GMing. The party’s sole goal is to be invited to a masquerade ball,…

WFRP 4e Starter Set

WFRP 4e Starter Set

Alright. I’m sorry to be this way, everyone…I know we should give things and chance, and I know most people only like to read positive reviews, and if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. But I am a Warhammer fan. I bought the 4th edition book and got about halfway through it before losing interest and moving on. I bought the Starter Set even though the core book lost my interest. I’m really trying….

RPGaMonth: The Gathering Storm

RPGaMonth: The Gathering Storm

I inadvertently started #RPGaMonth because I had a stack of gaming-related books that I had purchased but never read. With #RPGaMonth, I grab one of those books and start reading. For August, 2019, I chose Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 3rd edition campaign, The Gathering Storm. I would call it an adventure module, but the front of the cover says “A Campaign for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay,” so I guess I won’t argue. At its core, The Gathering Storm is a “retrieve these…

RPGaMonth: B/X Companion

RPGaMonth: B/X Companion

I inadvertently started #RPGaMonth because I had a stack of gaming-related books that I had purchased but never read. With #RPGaMonth, I grab one of those books and start reading. For March, 2019, I chose B/X Companion by Jonathan Becker (JB). I have been following JB’s blog for years, and I had heard this product mentioned enough times that it piqued my interest. Part 1: Introduction. Explaining (a couple times) how this book is to be used and the inspiration…

RPGaMonth: WFRP 4e Part 1

I inadvertently started #RPGaMonth because I had a stack of gaming-related books that I had purchased but never read. With #RPGaMonth, I grab one of those books and start reading. For February, 2019, I chose Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 4th edition. Species (Race) and Class: So far these work for me. There are new careers I’ve never played, and those all interest me. If you chose randomly, you get an XP bonus. Characteristics/Attributes: Things seem to get a little softer here,…
