Against Hatred

A quick post this time. This sort of thing shouldn’t be necessary, but this is the world we live in now (and in particular, the nation I live in now). I believe that racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, anti-semitism, and bigotry of any kind have absolutely no place in our hobby. Imperfekt Gammes has been proud […]

Given my love for Star Trek gaming, it’s only natural once I bought a copy of Savage Worlds: Adventure Edition that I’d start planning a Trek game. Here are my notes so far. I should note I’m following in the footsteps of this site: The ships were built using the great tools at this […]

Runequest Glorantha is out, and it’s the most beautiful RPG book I’ve ever seen! I con’ believe I’ve never gotten into Runequest before now. I’ve always been aware of it, even had a copy of Legend and Mongoose Runequest for awhile. I liked MRQ okay, but it didn’t compel me like RQG does. Making […]

Mecha for Strands of Fate: The Paladin-class Convertible Jet Mecha

7 April 2018 | 10:55 | NPF, Strands of Fate | No Comments

Years ago, I ran a mecha anime campaign in Mekton Zeta called Neo Protectors Fleet, and it turned out to be one of my players’ favorite games ever. It was basically a pastiche of Robotech and Macross 2: Lovers Again, with heavy influences from Star Trek, Dune, and Lensman. One of our players has passed on, […]

25 March 2018 | 8:35 | Stats, Strands of Fate | No Comments

Galaxy-Class Explorer for Strands of Fate Probably the most difficult vehicle to write up for any game system will be the U.S.S. Enterprise-D. I’m impressed with how easy and comprehensive the stats in Strands of Fate were to create. Honestly, they’re almost as fun and simple as the ones in Star Trek Adventures, the game […]
