Josh, I have a rules question.
On page 82 you detail when to roll dice. It appears that the decision to roll dice is always a PC's.
Also you don't give any details as to when the GM rolls his dice. As far as I can tell the GM only rolls after the P…
How do you guys handle public bleedings?
My group meets up in a gaming store and plays there.
In the past, if they didn't make their save roll, we've just hid them behind the d20 books..
However, I'm worried we will run out of space soon. Any su…
Awesome! You guys beat me to this..
This year I am bringing my 14 year old daughter. I've been talking with her about watching the younger kids.
This way the parents might get a short break. And I have one less session to worry what she's up to. :-…
I can't think of more that really needs to be said. I will add a little..
This was shared as a object lesson to everyone, that if you run a game, be ready to have a lines and veils talk.
If you forget to have this talk and come to a point were so…
I ran two sessions of Remember Tomorrow, both times I had 4 players. So I sat back and just helped the games flow.
before we started each game, I took 20mins or so, to talk about cyberpunk. I stole an idea from Microscope and asked people things th…
Is there any way I could get LDraw models of your mecha?
After playing MF0 I can't wait to dive in my old lego bin and build.
I'm looking forward to MF0's release. Guess I have a week to start organizing my Legos.
My current thoughts are:
Hell 4 Leather: a Vengeance Story, (2 - 5)
Apocalypse World: Hatchet City, (MC + 3 - 5)
I'm chewing on if I want to run another session of H4L, or AW..
My casting my eyes around if there another game I want to, (need to) r…
I think that AW is the wrong, model for BSG.
There is far to may moving parts for AW to deal with. Your going to get into situations where the Wrong Mix of playbooks isn't fun.
I would use, How We Came To Live Here.
You have two roles, Military an…
I would reinforce Ben's assertions, bookend frame what is in scope for your history. I would use them to really focus your remake, punch hard with the starting "Rise of An Intergalactic Empire" and ending bookends, "Intergalactic Empire falls".
Sorry, dude. Camp Nerdly #4 was this weekend, it's been a rush leading up to it.
I really like your work, you have captured what I like about Battletech and told me how I can retell stories in that setting. Thanks!
Play-wise, this week I will be b…
So what games are people thinking of running?
I will probably run a session or two of Remember Tomorrow..
It was great fun at Dreamation.
I like to switch up what games I run, so I gotta think about what other game I want to run..
Well, it was an heroic sacrifice.. So kinda optional TPK. It made sense story-wise.
I loved how Remi used a battle count down clock in the end. Help me say, we got just two move moves till we are done.
I am kinda iffy on Monsters, it felt like the…
Per Fischer, I agree, Zines and blogs share some need to make, and share. They stem from a common desire.
However the internet encourages us to peer review stuff, to learn from others and remix.
Zines all too easy encourage elitism, that these idea…
Vic, wasn't sure when the Maestro setup his den. Lot's of people where selling sex on the Wreak. It wasn't till those mushrooms showed up that he took interest. Where did these mushrooms come from? How did Maestro come to have so many..
When you ta…
How many times are we all agree it was a great Con?
I too had a great time. Missed you guys last year..
I also tried out Bill's New World. I like the idea of alternate histories, in that aspect it reminds me of Microscope. Which Bill needs to chec…
Posted By: Jason MorningstarI'm really hoping for more slice of life playsets. Somebody on rpg.net joked about a "housewives in cold war Warsaw" set, and that sounds really great to me.
That's my intention, with the Dr Strangelove + Loring AFB plays…
Rob, I would include a picture of your book. maybe even you. I'm guessing that the idea is to make people aware of your game, and very gently push them to buying it.
So somehow you gotta make the game more then just a pdf.
I'm working on a Dr Strangelove inspired set. It's set at Loring AFB Maine, during the Coldwar.
My father was a B-52 Pilot, I lived on Loring in the mid, 80s.
For stories where things go wrong, it's perfect. You got long winters, it's out of the …
Will, your pdf is lacking page numbers!
This was fustrating when I got the pages out of order..
Soon as more of my friends have played Fiasco we'll give this a run.
I was thinking of recording events in Sam's life on index cards like Microscope,…
DexCon and Dreamation happen have a lot of the story game community in attendance.
But somehow the only IPR is selling story games there.
If your game is carried by IPR I might see it and pick it up.
However I would rather play your game, before …
Never heard of Dogs of W*A*R is it an story game?
If your in the Northern VA area, and want to run or play story games, A butch of us meet up at The Complete Strategist, in Falls Church on Thursday at 6pm
I hadn't thought about people using their denial to block or turtle. But that makes sense it's what people do in the real world.
I was thinking just like you said, that someone in denial would have to move aggressively to prove his believe. Cause c…
Posted By: Mr. TeapotAnother idea for using Ganakagok for something else: Close Encounters of the Third Kind / Contact / V / The Day the Earth Stood Still alien encounter/first contact scenario.
I love this idea.. now I gotta a good reason to be r…
I missed both last years DexCon and this past Dreamation.. and Camp Nerdly was canceled. So I have been itching to get back to a Con.
I ran my Covent demo of years passed. It worked just fine, also always it makes a fast paced story; that I never k…
Guys, those where cicada's... They are all dead and will not be back for like 14 years.. What the camp need is more Rinobeetles.. They made great Miniatures!
Jason, do we really need a brochure? Wasn't the camp almost to capacity last year?
Posted By: BWAHi DC gamers .. If anyone is interested in a regular but short-term Burning Wheel game, hit me up. We need one or two more players.
Just to hijack your hijack...

Posted By: Jason MorningstarZombies are replaced with the broader conflict, specifically mining. Each "step forward" brings the dangers closer to home. Initially the conflict is intense fighting in the village itself - sort of a reversal of Zombie C…
