According to the news, Antonin Yelchin, the actor that played Pavel Chekov in the Trek reboot movies, died unexpectedly today. http://www.startrek.com/article/remembering-anton-yelchin-1989-2016 He was perfect for that role, and will be missed. Godspeed. Extra sad and strange because I’ve been working on a Star Trek fan supplement for the Stars Without Number OSR sci-fi RPG. Seeing […]

Now that Invulnerable RPG: Vigilante Edition is out, I’m ready to announce that I’ve been working on a lighter, faster, kid- and con-friendly super hero game called Metagene.

I think this: http://boingboing.net/2015/02/02/lets-put-the-guilt-back-in-g.html Is the perfect answer to this: http://www.gnomestew.com/hot-buttons/an-open-letter-to-game-publishers-please-stop-trying-to-make-me-feel-like-a-sleaze/ “the only people who believe in some kind of universal taste—a consensual demarcation between what’s artistically good and what’s artistically bad—are insecure, uncreative elitists who need to use somebody else’s art to validate their own limited worldview.

The rules require very little tweaking for Dungeon Crawl Classics; here are the few changes that occur to me. Hit Points, Weapon […]
