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

Out of a game, a campaign!

This past Sunday, Puerto Rico Role Players held its 20th Geeknic. The name of this latest edition was: Make Geeknics Great Again! (No relation to a certain political campaign, just a joke while trying to be topical!)

We’ve been doing these picnics for geeks for some time now, and I’ve written about them before on a few occasions. We went back to the Guavate Recreational Area in Cayey. Located at the end of the porcine delicacies road (click on the previous link to learn more) in the Carite Forest; we’ve held previous geeknics there, and while the location is sadly unkempt, the lush forest and the breeze just invite you to game in one of the many large gazebos.

RPG Blog Carnival: Technology in my Games

Greetings dear readers! Michael recently wrote about our efforts to revitalize the blog, and I think we’re off to a good start. He invited our readers to discuss the types of posts and topics they enjoyed, and in one such comment Voidman said he liked one of my earlier pieces about using technology at the gaming table. Thank you for the kind words; it’s a pleasure to have you, and so many others as our readers.

This topic, the technology I use as a GM, is constantly evolving, and is one that deserves some revisiting periodically. On this post I’d like to discuss the technology I currently use to run our Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition campaign. It also happens that the topic of the RPG Blog Carnival for September 2016 is Game Master Tools, Aids, Apps & Hacks, so it all comes together rather fortuitously!
