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…

The Book of Passion: An interview with the authors

With all the love and lust going around last week, on account of it being Valentine’s Day on Tuesday, you might have missed a new Kickstarter from Christina Stiles of Misfit Studios, The Book of Passion. The project is seeking support to publish a book about love and sex for the OGL 3.75 ruleset.

Regular readers who’ve read some of my older posts will know I don’t shy away from adult themes in my games. I believe there is a time and place for these topics, with the right group, and of course if everybody is comfortable with them. I would never try to alienate or hurt the sensibilities of my players. At least I try not to! Perhaps I’m lucky in that I play with my close friends, and since most of us have known each other for so long, we know where and how far we can go.

A project such as this will of curse be compared to the Book of Erotic Fantasy. I own a copy of it, and remember the controversy and hoopla around it. Much ado about nothing if you ask me! As you can tell I am definitely the target market for this new project. Not to brag, but I was the 2nd backer of the project. Fully believing that there should be a place for a product that tackles these subjects responsibly and respectful, and in my desire to spread the word about the book, I contacted Christina Stiles, the editor and publisher; she told me how to contact the authors. Margherita Tramontano and Will Wells were kind enough to grant me an interview, and over FB Messenger we had a LONG discussion about the book they have written together and may other topics. I thank them both for their accessibility and time. Continue reading The Book of Passion: An interview with the authors
