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.

Help Desk / Pundit the Plagiariser?

I'll start to recognize posts inspired by the other site when that site starts to recognize that their entire forum was "inspired" by theRPGsite. If they've essentially plagiarized my entire forum, then there's really little reason for me to need to give any credit to anything on there.


The last time I ran into someone as paranoind,as full of shit, and as fake as The RPG Pundit  was the last time I had a crackhead ask me to give them some money for gas.

The gaming community may have turned out better had you stayed under your rock but people love train wrecks so here we are.

Pen and Paper Roleplaying Games (RPGs) Discussion / Fireborn?

I recently picked up Fireborn from ebay after assuming it was just another D&D clone. It seems to support both fantasy and modern play with powers, but feels like yet another Exalted rather than D&D.

Does anyone have experience in playing it? How would you categorize it?

I think it's more like a mix between Exalted and Highlander....but that still does not really explain it well.

I want to play Blue Rose with Hitler, Stalin, Anita Bryant and Oscar the Grouch.

Not sure it would work:

Stalin & Hitler would want to gas Blue Rose, Anita Baker would probably want send it out for "gender correction", and Oscar the Grouch would probably say "Maria, could you tell me how to say 'no' in Spanish? ".

I liked Luke when I met him last GenCon. He seemed very nice in person - happy and excited.

And I'd be more than pleased to play in any gaming group with you and such exalted company, Mike! :D


Yeah, some people just don't translate well over the internet.

Most Favorite: Deadly Gonzo

Least Favorite: Low Combat / Courtly Political Intrigue

I love merciless games tinged with crazy.   Stuff like Gamma World, Rifts, Planescape, Warhammer, Dark Heresy, Paranoia, Cthulhu.  I love it when shit explodes and if my character explodes, that's cool too.

I get bored with ongoing political intrigues that do not involve hack and slash.  I can do a wee bit of courtly stuff in L5R, but we better be slashing ASAP.  While I am a big ST:TOS fan, my fav ST RPG was when we played Klingon explorers.

Yeah, "deadly Gonzo is sweet". That's why I like Rfts and Cthulhu as well.

Probably he's not, as the Pundit probably won't be. Or anyone, by the way. I'm convinced that most of us could have lots of fun playing in a game run by any other person around here.

That's what I suspect.

Hinterwelt (for old times sake)
Clash (seems cool)
Gygax (Obvious reasons)
Luke Crane (to see if he's as much of an asshole in real life as he is on the internet)

Favorite: Sci-Fi (Firm to hard Sci-Fi), second would be Fantasy (Tolkien style)

Least favorite: Supers, I can play it if it is meant to be a spoof but otherwise, no thanks.

I drive about 75-90 minutes one way to game now.

We had a small game shop open a while back in my town but it went under after 6 months win the Co-Owners had a spat and split.

Personally, anything but American and French history interests me. American history doesn't interest me because it's hyperbole, and rammed down Americans throats THROUGHOUT our school years, with very little attention paid to other important areas of history. French...Because I KNOW the outcome of all the wars they fought...Hell, even the red and blue are velcroed to their flag, for ease of surrender.

Well, it might be true that in the US we used to get a heavy dose of  US History (as it should be , IMO). Hyperbole? You find me any history without a large portion of hyperbole heaped  onto it. Of course there is hyperbole, history is mostly written by the winners and they naturally are going to overstate and inflate the parts of it that make them good.

The only difference between US History and the rest maybe that how much you personally know of them.

Which histories do you like the best? Any era.

So far, I've started to read Hart's "history of the second world war" and it seems great so far. Looking at the ToC/Index it's not as comprehensive as say the Churchill history collection but I like Hart's take to this point.

I also found Foote's Civil War histories to be great.

I'm just hobby historian so take that into account, I'm not formally educated on history much less any particular era.

For me it was AD&D 2nd Ed. Played that for about 4 years, I think, before we found a copy of TMNT and Boot Hill.

Looks cool. Not sure if I like Sabertooth but Gambit looks pretty good.
