  • I have used xml in the form of DocBook, for technical documentation. It works well, and does handle outputting to variety formats. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DocBook Now could it handle any of the artistic layouts? I doubt it. Posted By: FigureFo…
  • Hotel Woes, it was too cold and dry. I have been sick this week. Nano Con, or a House Con. I'm all up for one. As long as I can crash, or steal some floor space.

  • I really enjoyed our game.. There may have been two or three scenes without Obstacles, your right we did have a lot of obstacles. This could be from our misreading of the rules. One helpful note, If your musical tastes are obscure, on this side…
  • I am under whelmed by the EP Hype. From what I can gleam it doesn't do much for the source material. It doesn’t bring anything new to the table, just a percentile system. Why should I ones more FIX a published system? Maybe Indie games have spoiled…
  • Posted By: BullbarOne of the problems is that despite me organising a group character/world creation session, pretty much nobody turned up. So they're either making their characters on their own or doing them when they turn up. Nobody is familiar wi…
  • Tease!! That is a great idea to put under the Microscope, aka The story of how Earth Dawn relates to Shadowrun... What ever we do with Microscope, it doesn't really feel game like.. it's more sitting around the camp side. So calling it a game feel…

  • Posted By: BrendanBut I am of the opinion that we should change this: everyoneshouldbe forced to hug, and indeed,if possible, kiss. Well, that is sure to bring a new crowd to the scene..
  • At Dreamation / DexCon, When I was running BurningWheel, I often had more Characters then slots. Part of this was cause I wanted to have female Characters available, but not mandatory. When friends that I know BurningWheel showed up often they could…

  • Posted By: misubaIf we want to do #s-g for things pertaining to this site, that seems reasonable, but for other things it lacks discoverability. My other friends already have a hard enough time knowing what the hell I'm talking about, thanks. So tru…
  • I like background Japanese characters.. but they should serve as an Easter egg. Something that has to be discovered. Maybe flavorful bit of dialog, from the game? I think that this current cover trys too much to be like but not the same as the ori…

  • Like Efindel, I had issues with scheduling.. The free form scheduling did work in the end. It just meant that I played more board games, and didn't bother with games that required prep. I would like to see a better system to gage interest in a ga…
  • Posted By: demiurgeastarothPDQ + Space opera: yes please. Where can I get it? Just get the PDQ# rules, or better yet S7S* and retheme your game for Space Opera. Our group did this when the PDQ# rules were first published. It worked out great! *S7S…
