Holiday Game Cards for your Players

Today’s post is going to be a reblog just in time for the holidays.

Role-play Craft

Have you thought about giving your players a small gift to celebrate the yule holiday? This post will give you an idea that I utilized that I think you might like. What you’ll need is a printer, some print-capable card stock, and Avery (or similar) business card paper for your printer. Also some sort of PDF reader!

The central part of this gift idea are a small set of cards you can print out and give to your players. These cards can be turned in to you, the DM, in exchange for a small effect. There are also trinket cards that are small magical items with no hard mechanics but which might be utilized in creative ways. (The PDFs of these cards are near the bottom of this post.)

Rebuilding the Realms of Twilight

Howdy folks! Sorry about the lack of posts here lately, the job has had me stretched pretty thin when it comes to time, so my next (and final) Ghartha post will be just a little bit. I also have a review of the Role Playing game Yellow Dawn by author David J Roger which will be coming before that (a very nicely detailed setting and system), so keep an eye out!

I did want to give notice about a KickStarter I’m pretty excited about. The Realms of Twilight is a campaign world for Pathfinder created by Silver Crescent Publishing that offers a unique and dark twist on the usual epic fantasy fare. As I’m sure you’re aware, I like my fantasy pretty dark. The original product was a quality third party campaign setting, so having a new version coming out that really digs into the history of Relistan and offers a whole host of new goodies is pretty exciting. This is the sort of product I usually put in for, and is the sort of product that I hope to be one day making.

There are 13 days to go as of this writing, and it definitely needs some love. If the original product is any indication, then this is almost certainly worth your time.

Oh, did I mention that Ed Greenwood would be making an appearance as a guest author?

Anyway, just wanted to try and spread the word about this because this sort of third party RPG support is really my favorite thing about the hobby as a whole. I hope you back it, or at least go check it out.

Until next time, au revoir!

Reminder and Call to Arms (Keyboards?)

Hello gang! I just wanted to remind, or let you know, that I’ve got a fun little collaboration going on with another post here: The Greenwheel Carnival. Essentially I wanted to come up with a fun setting/playset that you can insert into your role playing game that was a collaboration of other fans of role playing games, just to see what kind of whacky stuff we can come up with.

There have been a couple of great additions already from bloggers you should check out. If you’ve got the want and will, please assist us in coming up with something fun! I plan on using the ideas in a session sometime in the future, and I hope you would want to do the same. Also, your contribution can be anything from an encounter, a stall at the carnival, anything really. Maybe a ditty?

I look forward to your contribution. Thanks!

In future news, I am slowly working on a bigger blog entry about Magic in role playing games. I want it to be good, so it’ll be a little before I post it.
