Quick Note - Pyramid of the Forgotten King and other News

It sure has been a quiet month for the spirit of this blog hasn't it. With the chill winds washing over the land, school projects for the fourth grade year, and an actually gig for a third party company (more on that later) the spirit of the blog has gone into a quiet sleep as its master works his fingers off.
As I said on google+ on Monday MEPAcon was amazing and the adventures I ran there were well received! Assault's 5e version was a hit and I hope to revisit that version of Usarm soon ... however, for me the true hit was Pyramid of the Forgotten King. I was very scared running that adventure and while I did end up losing a player to boredom (or play style differences I'm unsure) I gathered a lot of supportive and constructive comments from the group as a whole ... enough so that I am going to go ahead and within the next three weeks to start a kickstarter for the project!
Wait ... WHAT?!
As it stands at 90% completion Pyramid of the Forgotten King is 30 pages long of n…

Quick Note - Valentine's PIE

I'm currently plotting (between two other projects) my next PIE adventure with the modified rules I've been working on since last week. This one will feature the PIE team having to time travel to February 14th, 2016 in order to avert the end of the world.

Given how many times The Real Ghostbusters time traveled I feel no problem having time travel in an adventure. My biggest worry is that no one will get the reference in the plot of the adventure.

Quick Note - The First Great Genius Loci Ebay sale is Over!

The first sale is over and the funds gained from the sale of a good chunk of my old rpg collection has netted (with aid from my rpgnow sales for October) me half of the funds I need for the phantom bill I wrote of last week.

As such I will be placing a second selection up on ebay tonight at some point. Like the previous sale it will be a lot of 3.x edition stuff but I may also add in my Army of Darkness Roleplaying Game and my Sixth Edition of CoC.

The actual list right now is:

Lot One:

d20 Menace Manual
d20 Modern
Urban Arcana

Lot Two: (Not actually a lot)

Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 Edition Spell Compendium

Lot Three:

Dungeons & Dragons 4e Forgotten Realms Players Guide
Dungeons & Dragons 4e Forgotten Realms Campaign Guide (w/ Map insert never removed)

Lot Four:

Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 Players Handbook II
Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 Dungeon Masters Guide II
Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 Monster Manual II

Lot Five:

d20 Apocalypse
d20 Cyberscape
d20 Future
d20 Future Tech

Those ar…

Play Report - Ghosts R Not Us!

Just finished running a game of PIE at the local shop. We ran the first adventure "Easy as PIE" and everyone was new to mini-six/D6 so there was a steep learning curve, but overall everyone picked it up really quickly ... although there were calls to let people use skills for strange things that I allowed to a certain extent. The entire adventure took about an hour and a half with one break and some explanation of rules like the use of Hero Points as both health risky die pool.

The PIE team had struggled to get the local NEPA Franchise started due to the city's high tax rate, and questions from the main branch about needing another PIE franchise so close to the main branch in NYC. After some negotiation with the local government the PIE team agreed to eventually investigate the Masonic Temple and city library for free and to neither dismiss or endorse the current mayor in the next campaign.

After setting up shop in an old electrical station the team enjoys several weeks …

Quick Note - I seem to like Circles

Already planning another PIE release in the future and today with what little free time I had I did this simple little diddy for possible use.

The other thing I  was thinking was calling it "The Real PIE"
