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 souls of dusk rising from the ashes

Hard to believe that in two days it will mark 8 years since Erick's passing.

I think back to all of the ADRP stuff that he contributed, and all of the ideas that he had planned to develop ... well, it's still so sad.

I'll read Ninjas and Superspies and Mystic China again, two of my favorite RPG books.
Even the the "cutting edge" storygamers for all their talk of narrative, plot, and drama are fucking obsessed with the god damned rules they use. - Estar

Isuldur is a badass because he stopped Sauron with a broken sword, but Iluvatar is the badass because he stopped Sauron with a hobbit. -Malleus Arianorum

I remember many years ago at a small convention in Windsor, Ontario, Erick had done a seminar on how to roleplay a character well. This was my first introduction to him, and this was long before the Amber Diceless roleplaying system was released.
I had played in a couple of game run by him-Entropy (unpublished SF RPG), and Amber. This was before the game was published as well.
I have tried to emulate him, but feel that I fall short of this standard.
One thing that I do have is a copy of the Amber RPG, signed by BOTH Erick Wujick and Roger Zelazny. Roger was surprised when I showed up with this at a World Fantasy Convention.

I got to play in a couple of Erick's unpublished "experimental" games and they were a blast, but I didn't discover the Amber game until after its publication.

Can you share some insights about the pre-publication Sorcery system? I've talked with several of the original playtesters and they all remember that Sorcery was different but none of them can seem to remember enough give me specifics or saved the early docs they got from Erick. :(

One adventure that I remember playing with Erick was one called Ghost Ship. This was science fiction based, and we played characters exploring a derelict space ship. It was not diceless-but very limited use of dice. All of the players were good roleplayers, and we had a 100% survival rate. If you remember what Erick was like as a game master, you had to be good to survive in his games.
He did have a saying that he would only let players die for only two reasons-character action, or combat. But his scenarios were so difficult that surviving surviving them was very difficult.

Yeah, a whole decade now. Really sucks. :(

I know that we have LoO and LoGaS, but it's also sad that in ten years the DBD crew has been able to do nothing with the "real" ADRP game other than sell a few PDFs. :(
