This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

The RPGPundit's Own Forum / Covid, the "lockdowns" etc.

Here we go, a thread for discussing covid , lockdowns, health and economic effects, to keep the subject off the main gaming forum, so have at it!

So back in the day, probably 1980 ish, I can remember a couple of times playing a hex-based strategy game. It wasn't an rpg but I'm pretty sure it was a TSR/D&D spin-off of some sort.

The game map was large and full, bold colour, what I now think of as kinda  Darlene style but with silhouette-type city hexes. Was it supposed to be Greyhawk? Not sure, I think I had the impression at the time that it was, but I don't think the geography was much like the Greyhawk maps I've seen since. I do remember one of the lands was called "Xorn" (or "Zorn?").

Anybody else remember this game? What it was called? Anything else about it?

I'll appreciate any info to flesh out my fragmentary memory.

Pen & Paper Roleplaying Games (RPGs) Discussion / The Domain Game
« on: April 14, 2020, 02:49:26 PM »
Forgive me if this has been hashed out in the past (and if so, links welcome!). But I am curious to hear people's thoughts on the "Domain Game." Do you love it? Hate/avoid it? Never get around to that kind of level? Do you prefer to retire and start again rather than play on in what can arguably be be a completely different game as estate manager/diplomat/warlord/cult leader etc.? Or do you like carrying on, but prefer to become more and more of a superhero? If you have gone "Domain," were your experiences positive or negative? What worked? What didn't?

My own context for this is that I have only played in one long-lived campaign that segued into the domain game, but it was fantastic. Loved it. I mean, I love "sweet-spot" mid-level play, and even scary low-level play where you can be taken out by a nasty slip on the ice or an unusually large mosquito, but for me the domain game provided years of amazingly memorable play.

And yet, it seems to be a style or phase of the game that you don't hear that much about.

 Happy to share more of my own perspective on this, but for now I'll just put the topic out there.
