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 subject line more or less says it all. :)

  I don't need it myself--I got my copy back in 1998 in trade for a used copy of FOR2 The Drow of the Underdark--but I know a lot of people have been waiting for this.

News and Adverts / Flash Gordon Approaching!

After over two years of waiting, Pinnacle's launching the Flash Gordon Savage Worlds RPG in one week (Tuesday, November 21st). Here's their promo video:

  Given Pinnacle's previous track record, that means we'll probably have the PDFs shortly after the New Year, and the game should definitely be in print by GenCon at the latest.

  Has anyone seen any news on the other King Features project of recent memory--the second edition of the Prince Valiant Storytelling Game?

Pelgrane Press just put up their list of GenCon seminars on their website, and this is their first event on Thursday afternoon:

"Thursday 1:00 PM – Gaming Saves the World
How do we translate our experiences as gamers into productive expression, activism & persuasion? Join us as we look at the map, hash out the tactics, & min-max our way out of the darkest timeline."

  Is it just me, or does this sound like a bad idea? Political activism may be a good thing, but should we really try to instrumentalize the hobby as a tool for it? And what happens if someone uses their advice for the 'wrong' agenda? :)

Champions may be a bit too new-school and storygamey for most of the crowd here ;), but the Kickstarter for a new version of the famous campaign guide Strike Force has just launched:

  This has been a Gaming Public Service Announcement.
