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.

I've been trying it for a while, and it's pretty slick. Does anyone play it, or is interested in playing it?

Other Games / Elite remake on Kickstarter
« on: November 06, 2012, 08:19:48 am »

Classic video game Elite is getting a 21st Century makeover.

David Braben, one of the creators of the original, is seeking £1.25m ($2m) via Kickstarter to fund the updated version.

Called Elite: Dangerous it will involve the same mix of interstellar travel, trading, piracy and spaceships as the original 8-bit game.

Those who pledge cash to the project will also get a chance to shape the development of the updated version.

"Elite is a game that I've wanted to come back to for a very, very long time," Mr Braben told the BBC. "It's the sort of game that I would very much like to play today."

Click on the link for more pics and a video.

Are there any good ones that you'd recommend?

Say, map mapers (hex or grid), PC/NPC stat generators, portraits, dice roller, character sheets, combat trackers, whatever...

A new project:


New Orleans, 1935. Whoever called this the Big Easy sure got that one wrong. Things are tough all over. Honest work is hard to find, and even dishonest jobs are getting scarce. The one thing that’s not in short supply is trouble. From shady thugs to crooked cops to Mafia soldiers, there’s plenty of characters out there looking to give an honest Joe a hard time.

And that’s not the worst of it.

There are stories going round about things that go bump in the night. Things you wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley on a darker night. And those stories aren’t just coming from rummies or saps who read that Epitaph rag.

Still, there are a few heroes left in the concrete jungle. Steely-eyed private dicks, fast-talking grifters, wild-eyed inventors, and shadowy houngans still struggle against the encroaching darkness. With enough moxie—and more than a little luck—they might just be enough to turn the tide.

Deadlands Noir is a pen-and-paper roleplaying game set in the world of Pinnacle Entertainment’s award-winning Deadlands universe. It includes new Edges, Hindrances, and powers, as well as new rules for handling detective work, the state of the Union and the CSA in the Depression-era, a complete Plot Point campaign, and of course, more monsters and ghouls than you can shake a smoking .45 automatic at.

Deadlands Noir uses the best-selling Savage Worlds rules, and you will need a copy of those to play. Check out the Test Drive version of the rules for free at! Our Explorer's Edition of the rules is only $9.99, print OR PDF!

*** Note: We expect the PDF to be available November 2012, not November 2013 as listed under the Mook Reward. Sorry for the mistake! We can't fix it once it's live. ***

Other Games / Richard Garfield's Netrunner is back!
« on: May 14, 2012, 03:11:21 pm »
Blast from the past:

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of Android: Netrunner! Originally designed by Richard Garfield and released in 1996, Netrunner was widely hailed as one of the greatest customizable card games of its era. Now, with Android: Netrunner, players can look forward to revisiting the game’s exciting play… or experiencing it for the first time.

Android: Netrunner is an asymmetrical Living Card Game™ for two players. Set in the cyberpunk future of Android, the game pits a megacorporation and its massive resources against the subversive talents of lone runners. Corporation players try to score points by advancing their agendas, and netrunners try to score points by breaking through the corporation’s defenses and stealing valuable data. The first player to seven points wins the game, but not likely before he suffers some brain damage or bad publicity.

Ok, what makes it good? What do you do in it? How does it compare to strategy and RPG videogames? Is it free and works in (shudder) Windows Vista?

Lots, and I mean lots, of news regarding quite a few games published by RedBrick. Details here.

I hope the movie is as good as this awesome trailer. It's an alt-history geek's dream come true!

Release date: June 22nd.

The RPGPundit's Own Forum / Iran weaponizes Photoshop
« on: February 03, 2012, 09:52:28 am »
Some of you might have heard that Iran's government reenacted Khomeini's return, parading a cardboard cutout ayatollah (not making that up) instead of the long-deceased one.

What can we learn from this ceremony? Never give your unhappy citizens an Allah-given gift to mock the regime. :D

The RPGPundit's Own Forum / Bismarck speaks from the dead
« on: January 31, 2012, 10:13:59 pm »
A wax cylinder recording of German statesman Otto von Bismarck has been released, the first time his voice has been heard for more than 100 years.

BBC story here, recordings here. Helmuth von Moltke is also featured, as is the first ever recording of Frederyk Chopin's work. :jaw-dropping:

Bismarck sang La Marseillaise. And people say that Germans lack humor...

EDIT: Link to excellent article.

Watch the video, and discuss.

Oh, what gamers do when they own a tech company... :D

Is it heading towards democracy? Are the changes sustainable? What on Earth is going on inside their military's collective brain?
