When you have a collection of 200+ RPGs, sooner or later you find yourself with the urge to make 200+ characters.
This blog started off as a collection of the characters I create during this project.
The goal is to create two characters for each game I own. One “standard” starting character, and one “sufficiently advanced” character to see what an experienced character would look like.
I have a few games where the character creation process requires some interaction with other players in the game – in those cases I’ll try to work with someone or a group of persons on various forums to complete the task.
The blog has also become the repository for all my other RPG pursuits – house rules, commentary on games we are playing, and currently the home to my home-brew game, Adventures in the New Kingdoms.
I’m Dyson. I’ve been gaming since 1978 in a variety of game systems, but most often playing Dungeons & Dragons (particularly Moldvay Basic). But that’s not to say I haven’t played other games along the way, with dalliances in science fiction, cyberpunk, urban fantasy, and other game settings.
I’ve even included a page about my 25 favourite games if you want a more concise history of my top RPGs.
Currently we are playing a *lot* of RPGs in my various groups that I game with regularly.
We play two “A” schedule games (every other week on Sunday) and four “B” games (each once per month on Saturdays).
Currently the schedule is:
Weeks 1 & 3 – B/X D&D “Adventures in the New Kingdoms” (DM)
Weeks 2 & 4 – Rogue Trader
Week 1 – Street Fighter: the StoryTelling Game
Week 2 – Gamma World 2e
Week 3 – Steampunk’d Eberron – D&D 3.5
Week 4 – One Shot Afternoon! (I often run a 1PG game from Deep7, and one of our crew pulls out Lacuna Part 1 every now and then)
The dice at the top of the page are from a brilliant (although expensive) relatively new dice company based out of Poland. Their dice are dead sexy and a very cool addition to whatever game you are playing. They have dice for post-apocalyptic, cyberpunk, high tech, fantasy and even call of cthulhu settings.
