Maybe the Missions books are like these?

Yeah I suspect that when I find a mission book or two it'll turn out to be a lot like the solitaire adventures WEG published to "show you want an RPG i ...

Oh dear gawds, now you're emulating "The Purge" and "Battle Royale" by killing off your own player characters! Shocked Shocked Shocked

I didn't kill him! I just punched him ou ...

You know those "Was - Now" price signs that make you think you are getting something on sale? I watched department heads just completely making up the "Was" price.

I particularly like the trees you used for the red foliage plants. Turned horizontally, they look like alien plants. Well done!

I'd love to take credit but that idea is right outta the SWMB book!

It sounds like an Only War intro from 40K. I do like the idea of not giving the players anything, including their starting class. You want to be an adventurer? Well, you have to earn it. Makes sen ...

Looks great! I'm intrigued by the red foliage. Did you paint that or were you able to find it somewhere?

Pretty cool setup overall.

I had to get a bag of Woodland Scenics clump foliage "F ...

RIP your rebellious gaming uncle. Nice legacy he left you.

Yeah he was dying of throat cancer and didn't tell anyone, died last summer, aged 57, maybe a couple months or so after I named a kid af ...

I recall seeing a few of these, but didn't realize they're RPG books. Is it a Choose Your Own Adventure setup?

It appears to be. The cards and stuff are still shrink wrapped so I don't actually kn ...

Time to redo my vegetation. As you can see I messed up my ground cover and the bases of trees don't really match the GeoHex terrain. Plus... I snag 144 of the "real" styrene bases GeoHex use ...

So today I ran across a little black Darth Vader suitcase full of stuff for "Star Wars: Missions". It seems to be like SW meets Oregon Trail. Pretty neat. Looked it up on Wookiepedia, I app ...

...Wait, what? You got rid of old gaming books? What possessed you to do that? Why would you throw old books away?


It was a bunch of like 3.5ish edition stuff I'd never used much anyway. Put it ...

(Having to have 5 different types of dice is still annoying, though...)

I'd hate to see what you think of the DCC RPG. I like it so much I got rid of my old pile of DnD books!

I recommend the whole material as two more issues are addressed there.

I just watched this, it was way better than I expected. Thanks for sharing it. "Plot holes" isn't really my proble ...

Sounds about right to me. And I actually LIKED the sequel trilogy. ...

But blaster bolts don't have mass, do they?

The gas should ...
