Herein I will talk about RPG gaming with my kids, gaming online, even Play-by-Mail/Post. While I call myself a gamer, I have a love for the older games or OSR-style, if you will. I may even have a minion or two help with the discussion as well. Enjoy!

    The BX Options Class Builder example worksheet.

    I do an average job of going through an already built class to see if it lines up with the XP requirements that one should expect in a BX game with the listed abilities of the class.  Then I get to rambling on more about the classes in Pacesetter's BX Remastered book as it related to the Class Builder book.  Maybe I need help to just let go of how I feel about that product.....

    Skills?! We don't need no... Wait, what system are playing today??

    Skills?! We don't need no... Wait, what system are playing today??

    Wherein I muse a bit about skills and why are they even in our RPGs.  I further muse on what type of player and GM need/want skills in their game.  Not the most coherent musing but you get what you pay for, right?

    Thanks to Che from Roleplay Rescue for the call-in and motivation to put out another episode.  Catch Che on his podcast: https://anchor.fm/rpgrescue/
    Thanks go out to Rob C of the Down in a Heap podcast for his back catalog that sparked this train of thought.  Go spend some time there, won't you?  Down in a Heap Podcast

    I want to hear your musings as well.  Maybe it will spark some other random thought in my head, which could be a bad thing....  https://anchor.fm/eviljeff/message

    So, let me tell you something.... or, a review of a recent Kickstarter I backed.

    So, let me tell you something.... or, a review of a recent Kickstarter I backed.

    Wherein I do a review of a recent Kickstarter that is fulfilling, Third Kingdom Games' (Todd Leback) Filling in the Blanks - A Guide to Populating Hexcrawls.  I give you the specs on the product, go over the content and give you the good and the bad (which there really isn't any but me being picky).  What did I think about it overall?  Give it a listen.

    Click the following to see Filling in the Blanks - A guide to Populating Hexcrawls on DTRPG.

    Dwarves and Elves are not heroes.... or, what I read in the Hobbit that makes me think.

    Dwarves and Elves are not heroes.... or, what I read in the Hobbit that makes me think.

    Reading the Hobbit to the Minions, I came across a passage that has me feeling that many people playing RPGs are making the demi-humans more heroic than they were intended.  Should a GM be a bit more strict in how these dwarves, elves, gnomes, halflings, and other demi-humans are played?  There it is.  Discuss.

    Also, Jason calls in and I try to respond.  Not sure how well that part went, you be the judge.

    If a train going 100 mph leaves the station going west... or my current issue with time and distance.

    If a train going 100 mph leaves the station going west... or my current issue with time and distance.

    Wherein I get Minion Bravo to assist with a physical test of distance over time.  I raise an issue with movement and time in D&D and we do an experiment to help us both see if the rules hold up or trip before they get to the finish line.  Afterwards, some discussion about the results and how they can relate to our games.  And yes, I did have to edit out one of the Minion's name in the recording.
