Tommy's Take on The Beast That Waits

The Beast That Waits is a new Swords & Wizardry adventure by Three Sages Games. I am not a Swords & Wizardry guy. However, I am a D&D 5e guy, and I have learned - from personal experience - that conversions to 5e are pretty simple...so I'm going to be looking at this through that lens.

Tommy's Take on High Strung

This is one of those that I was dying to read when it was announced: An RPG about playing members of a rock band, by the guy that made an RPG about playing members of a baseball team.

Half-Dozen Heroes: AMP Year One

So I haven't done this in a while, but I decided to do an installment of Half-Dozen Heroes, in which I have created six PCs for AMP: Year One, just to show off the system and options just a little bit.

Sound good? Right-click on the character sheets to blow them up.

Six Questions with Eloy Lasanta

Eloy Lasanta took the time to answer six questions from me about AMP: Year One, AMP: Year Two and Third Eye Games in general. And don't forget, the Year One giveaway is still going on!

I'm not a very good interviewer, but I thought something fairly short and to the point could be nice here.

Tommy's Take on AMP: Year One

As you may or may not have heard, I'm running a giveaway over here for AMP: Year One while AMP: Year Two is on Kickstarter. You should enter that giveaway, unless you already own AMP. If, for some reason, you are on the fence about an RPG I am giving away, I am here to let you know what's inside and my impression of those contents.

AMP: Year One Giveaway and Year Two Kickstarter plus Fabled Environments and Connect Dice!

Todays blog post is about three Kickstarters and a sweet (if I do say so myself) giveaway.

Last year, Third Eye Games released AMP: Year One, their supers game set at the dawn of the rise of people with powers, called AMPs. The inspirations draw heavily from shows like Heroes, movies like Push and, of course, The X-Men (which heroes borrowed liberally from, so that makes sense). This is a setting in which powers are new and different and scary, and some people are embracing the change and others are looking out for themselves. The book, in addition to all the core rules, contained the Year One (2015) timeline for the setting.

Tommy's Take on Packs!

Games with animal characters certainly aren't unique, but Packs!, an upcoming English translation (and Savage Worlds adaptation) of a German RPG, features the players playing as rats, competing for survival in the Ratlair, an abandoned department store.
