And now...The Bamfsies!

I was recently recruited by Mike Lafferty of Fainting Goat Games and the Bamf! Podcast to join the governing body of The Bamfsies, alongside Cam Banks, Chris Helton and Dan Davenport.

What are the Bamfsies? They are a fairly light hearted award series for Superhero Gaming, which all of the above, plus myself, have a love for. We already have the Hall of Fame up, and voting is ongoing right now for your picks for the Gamer's Choice award. We're going to attempt to coordinate a podcast for the awards next month, so you should get your vote in for your favorites NOW.

Gold star if you can guess my Hall of Fame selection without looking.

D&D: Hoard of the Dragon Queen Episode 2 Actual Play

We had to take a month off for various reasons, but we did pick Hoard of the Dragon Queen back up a few weeks ago...I've just not gotten around to doing a write-up.

This is that write-up.

Tommy's Take on The Last Parsec: Eris Beta-V

Hi guys, remember me?

I'm not dead, just started a new job, and that plus illness plus baby have pretty well sidelined me recently.

I recently got a chance to take a look at one of the books in the Kickstarter for The Last Parsec (now in its final day), and I thought I would give you a brief overview.

It's only a brief overview for one huge reason, which is that it's a Plot Point Campaign, and I try not to spoil TOO much in my reviews.

D&D: Hoard of the Dragon Queen Character Creation

I'm...really blogging about my next campaign, a Dungeons & Dragons campaign. It's been about a decade since I ran D&D in any incarnation, and longer since I've done it with any enthusiasm...but I am genuinely looking forward to Saturday and giving this a go.

Warning...some spoilers below.

#RPGaDay Day 31: Favorite RPG of All Time

There's a reason my blog tends to be called a "Savage Worlds blog". I created a Savage Worlds Facebook group. I have worked for multiple Savage Worlds licensees (Daring Entertainment, Savage Mojo, Gun Metal Games and Third Eye Games). I have ran Necessary Evil, two Deadlands Reloaded campaigns, horror one shots, a fantasy homebrew one shot, a Savage Midnight conversion and Solomon Kane, and all in the last five years or so.

Savage Worlds has flipped the way I look at RPGs, making it harder for me to enjoy games I once thought were great. 

It, in my play experience, is fast, furious and fun...and while I will run other games (preparing a D&D 5th edition game now), if it ever comes down to an either/or, it will always be Savage Worlds.

#RPGaDay Day 30: Rarest RPG I Own

I'm going with Marvel SAGA, in part because I own the entire line, including the four promo cards.

The only thing that would compete, as far as I'm aware, is the complete Star Wars Saga Edition set, including Starships of the Galaxy and the Knights of the Old Republic Campaign Guide.
