  • A Look Back at... Malifaux Nationals 2016! Day 1 (Part 1)


    So this was it.

    The biggest Malifaux event in the world ever.

    124 players in one place, competing for prizes in painting, gaming, terrain making, and costumes, at Battlefield Hobbies in Daventry.

    Truly the stage was set for another amazing weekend of gaming, socialising and (for some brave souls) an alarming amount of drinking…

    Daruma Productions and Nightfall Games are doing something cool, something I haven't seen or heard before, as far as mechanics go. I'm keeping my eye on them, as should you.

  • Getting Started with the D&D Starter Set


    I'm going to make an admission now, the sort of admission you wouldn't regularly hear of a GM of my experience (decrepitude?); I haven't run all that much Dungeons and Dragons over the years. It was my first game, and I began with the venerable Red Box, but very soon after getting into RPGs I moved over to Rolemaster, Call of Cthulhu and other games. After that, if I ran any D&D it was always in specialised settings; like Planescape or the original Iron Kingdoms RPG for D&D 3.5 and, although I've played some sessions of D&D, it's far fewer than other games.

    As far as that goes, you're absolutely right and you have a right to play your games that way, but what if you invested more time to create a story behind everything? What if you could give your little plastic men/women/things a reason for wanting to destroy the other guy?
