Do I even want to run a League Game? Part 3 -The appeal of Pre-written Vs my own adventures

One of the problems I’ve had in running a League game other than system is Adventures. Over recent years I’ve found it harder to have decent time to plan good adventures and have relied on pre-written ones. Even with these I have struggled to find the time to read them. So In this short series […]

Do I even want to run a League Game? Part 1 – What games I have actually run in recent years

One of the problems I’ve had in running a League game other than system is Adventures. Over recent years I’ve found it harder to have decent time to plan good adventures and have relied on pre-written ones. Even with these I have struggled to find the time to read them. So In this short series […]

Arcane RPG – what do I want from a system?

So in a previous post I looked at which systems could be used for a League of Legends / Legends of runeterra / Arcane RPG. But there were no real winners (just plenty of losers). So in this post I will look at what I would want from a system to run such a game. […]

Arcane / Legends of Runeterra RPG – What system would I use?

I have wanted to have an RPG system to run a game in Runeterra (the setting for League of Legends/Legends of runeterra/Arcane) and we even dedicated a FluffnCrunch episode to it (Links: Anchor / Spotify). Now having watched Arcane (which was awesome by the way – check it out) I wanted to start having a […]

2d20: Creating a 2d20 Conversion

A few weeks ago on Fluff n Crunch (it was recorded over a month a go, podcasting is weird), Jeremy and myself discussed how to go about doing conversions (here). Firstly we classified the types of conversion: Re-Skin. When you basically use an exisiting rule-set and simply rename some of the parts of the system. […]

Fluff n Crunch, a gaming podcast

Way back in April a charming American called Jeremey messaged me about doing a podcast on 2d20. He had read a bunch of my blogs and was thinking of starting a 2d20 podcast and asked me to join. We’ve been recording it ever since on a mostly weekly basis with a break recently for my […]

Mini-reviews Part 2

This week I will cover a few more systems. 3 of these are ones I’ve played in last few months. Pathfinder 1e The Good Options. Lots of books, so lots of character optionsBestiaries. There are 6, and they are all greatAdventure Paths. A whole bunch of full length campaignsUltimate campaign. A great book with awesome […]

RPG mini reviews, part 1

This has been on my mind recently. A few times every year, I will be looking for a RPG system to play with my group, or wife or kid and spend ages going around in circles looking for something. Exactly what i want varies depending on the game i’m trying to run but what I […]

Which 2d20?

Unlike savage worlds or GURPS or Genesys there isn’t a core 2D20 book (yet). So it’s more like the Eden systems (buffy, AFMBE) or Cortex/+ (Firefly/serenity, bsg, MHR, Leverage, smallville) or the FFG Star Wars (AOR, EOE, FAD). The 2d20 games share the same underlying rules but have differences. What’s the same? i.e. how does […]

Why 2d20?

Why the sudden obsession with 2d20? Firstly it’s not recent. I kickstarted Infinity back at the end of 2016. [Nope, it was 2015, damn it’s late]. Played the beta, enjoyed it a lot. I have some minis, but more I like the art and style and the setting, so the RPG is what i want. […]

State of the Union

I feel I’ve almost come full circle. In the first ever month of this blog I reviewed Avengers and statted Naruto. Now i’m playing a Naruto game (in FATE) and have just seen Avengers 2! Looking at Fate stuff made me look at ICONS. But then looking at ICONS made me look at MHR. And […]

What have i been playing?

Read a lot of different game recently and managed to play a few. Starting with Beginner box and then using full 5E with alphaware missions we played a few sessions of Shadowrun. Really enjoyed it. Somewhere during that we played a session of through the breach. Still haven’t bought the books, waiting for the first […]

Fantasy : FATE or Dungeon World

From rpg.net : http://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?714817-Fantasy-FATE-or-Dungeon-World Should really have blogged this…an interesting conundrum! So i’ve played a few games of FATE Freeport with the missus, but it isn’t ‘zinging yet’. The style of game i’m looking for is pretty standard D&D (but not in D&D). Dungeons, monsters, wilderness adventures, helping villagers… As mentioned in another post, with only […]

Another Dissapearing Act

Hmmm, its actually only been about 3 weeks since I last posted. seems longer. The 13th Age campaign has managed 5 sessions! that beats the 3 i did for WFRP 3e earlier in the year, and pretty much and other RPG for the last…erm, since Uni (1994-7). After the starter game, 2 normal sessions ripping […]

Time…Money…So little of either

The following blog is an exerpt from an email i sent my “group” (i.e. my 2 best mates) beware – wall of text follows   Obviously i buy quite a lot of stuff that i never get to play. Partly thats because most games are more interesting when i’m waiting for stuff to release, and […]

My Gaming Worlds

I’ve talked before about not being able to find the right system but i think i basically have. Cortex plus does everything i want except have a world. I also really like the WFRP system, soon to be used in Star Wars, but its not very hackable so i’m ignoring it. I’m also fascinated with […]

Worst Blog Evvvaaaarrrr
