Explosive Runes

A couple of works-in-progress have unveiled new cover artwork. Both are by Peter Mullens and both are, unsurprisingly, pretty awesome.

Check out the cover for Urutsk: World of Mystery RPG over at The Grand Tapestry. It’s on the right sidebar.

And also the cover for Ruins & Ronin over at Sword +1.

Metagaming, combat length, and the death of roleplaying:

When one of the guys, a guy that loves roleplaying, tells me he just goes from encounter to encounter without really ropleplaying; well, then I know something is off. And I think this may be it. I think combat length may be the key to the problem.

Talking about, no surprise, 4th Edition D&D. But the point applies to all versions.

Dracula revisited: Some observations on an old classic
The original remains one of my favorites. I recently listened to a very well done audiobook with different readers for each part. Most excellent. A while back I started reading it aloud to my wife, but that’s sort of petered out for the time being.

I’m also quite a fan of Francis Ford Coppola’s film version.

‘Cities of Swords and Sorcery’ now available !!!
Looks good. I may have to pick this up.

Monsters of the Red Planet!
Al’s upcoming Warriors of the Red Planet RPG is looking pretty awesome.

Dispelling a myth – Sandbox prep
Chgowiz explains that it isn’t as hard as many make it out to be. I agree. I know this. I believe it. I preach it.

Now, if I could just put it into practice. My Forbidden Jungle has languished of late. My son doesn’t think we’ll ever start playing.
