All posts by Sunglar

Welcome reader, thanks for taking the time to find out just who I am! My name is Roberto, although in the Internet I usually go by the name of Sunglar. Long time pen & paper RPG player, mostly a GM for the better part of that time; some will say that’s because of my love of telling a good story, others because I’m a control freak, but that’s debatable… I was born, raised, and still live in Puerto Rico, an island in the Caribbean, with a small but active gaming community.

I’ve played RPGs for 30 years, and for most of that time I played D&D in all its various permutations, including Pathfinder and I'm currently playing D&D 5th edition. Other games my regular gaming group has played over the last few years include Mutants & Masterminds and Savage Worlds, but I have played many other games through the years, and plan to play many more. I am a compulsive homebrewer and rarely play a campaign I have not created myself.

You can follow me on Twitter as @Sunglar, and find me in Google+ also as Sunglar. I'm very active in Facebook where you can find me posting regularly in the Puerto Rico Role Players group. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Hello dear reader… Fret not about the title, I’m not quitting this blog (even if by my infrequent posting some of you suspected I already did), Michael is not getting rid of me that easy!

However, and despite all RL complications and responsibilities, I’m part of a new project I want to share with all of you. Desde la Fosa a vlog about RPG games in Spanish! It translates as From the Pit, and let me give you some background on it.

Sunglar’s Savage House Rules, Part 2!

Hello dear reader! This is a follow up to a previous post where I shared a Savage Worlds House Rules document I was working on. You can read the reasons why this came about on the original post. This is the latest version, the 9th draft I finished in December last year. I added some illustrations for good measure and might get back to working on it in a few weeks, but I wanted to share it with our readers to get any feedback or ideas you may have. Here is the link to the file:

Savage Worlds Sunglar’s House Rules (Draft 9 – Illustrated)

I’m also sharing a revised character sheet and damage track, and a cheat sheet, I had created for my Wanderers of the Outlands campaign. Originally shared in this post, back then they were adapted to the house rules I was using in the campaign, but I have since revised them to work with Savage Worlds Deluxe Edition. These documents DO not use the House Rules presented above and are meant to be used with the standard system rules.

I hope you find them useful, and as always, I welcome your ideas, criticisms and observations in the comments. Have a great day!

What about Mindjammer for Traveller? A Review…

So, I’m jumping on the blog’s Traveller bandwagon! About three months too late… I’ve been working on this review for a while and RL just kept me from finishing it. It was fun as it allowed me to read the book at a more leisurely pace, so I hope to make it justice without spoiling too much of this incredibly imaginative universe.

For the Mindjammer Traveller edition Michael, aka Stargazer, had received the Thoughtcast Edition PDF, a preview of the final book, and asked if I was interested in reviewing it. I jumped at the opportunity, and much to his chagrin then proceeded to take more than a month in getting the review done! To put it succinctly, I loved Mindjammer, the setting, the detail, the production. Is it a good fit for Traveller? I’m not 100% convinced, but hear me out. Let me explain it in greater detail. But first some background. Continue reading What about Mindjammer for Traveller? A Review…
