Tommy's Take on Fighting Fire: Ernie Gygax Benefit Adventure

Gamers can be an infuriating group of people. Go to the message board of any major RPG and chances are good that you will see someone overreacting, freaking out and generally losing their crap because a game company killed their dog and maybe tinkered with their favorite part of an RPG. On the other hand, I am constantly amazed at the generosity the larger gaming community shows when folks need help, be it during an international crisis...or when the son of the most influential individual in gaming loses his home in a fire.

Tommy's Take on Tianxia: Blood, Silk & Jade

Used to be, this would have been a hard sell for me...but more and more I've been getting my martial arts geek on, and given my new found interest in Fate, I wound up backing the Tianxia Kickstarter, a martial arts setting and sourcebook for Fate Core by Vigilance Press! Before I get started, I do have to offer a huge shoutout to my blogging colleague Jay Steven Anyong, who is doing a great Let's Study series on Tianxia over on his blog.

And so the Firefly theme continues with the Firefly RPG by Margaret Weis Productions, not to be confused with the Serenity RPG they released a few years ago.
