Describe Your Death For Us

When a character fails miserably at something during a game, who describes the failure? Is it the GM’s duty – NAYpleasure to chronicle the crunch of bones, the explosion of electronics, or the graceless fall from a great height? Are we figuratively rubbing our player’s faces in their own flubs? It’s fun for a storyteller to portray pratfalls, but shouldn’t we share that fun with the player who must suffer the slings and arrows of unkind dice?

Low-Cost Costume Props

Did you see this year’s lineup of cosplayers and clever costumes at GenCon? Impressive stuff, but cosplay like this often requires hours of work, stacks of money, and actual skills to pull off (no wait… to put on? Pull on? Nevermind). But imagine if you could bring just a bit of that kind of fun to your game table without breaking the bank or burning up all of your game-prep time sewing custom outfits for all thirty-five of your NPC’s. You can have props and costumes. You just have to put on your +3 Goggles of Frugality (they’re made out of cardboard) and look at common objects with the cosplayer’s eye.

Update Post – July 15, 2019

Greetings OP Community,

I’m a bit overdue in terms of where I’d like to be with respects to the release of these update posts, but it couldn’t be helped, and the show “must go on” as they say. So, I won’t dwell on it too much. There’s a fair amount of stuff to get into this time around, so let’s get started.

Obsidian Portal Campaign of the Month July 2019 – Birthright: Cities of the Sun

You look lost. First time in Suiriene? Perhaps I can be of some assistance? You won’t want to be blindly casting about too much around here. The Sultan’s men may not take kindly to it. They may think you an agent of The Serpent. I hear whispers of an impending purge, and you definitely don’t want to get caught up in that. Some think it cruel, but what can be done? He is the Sultan, it is his Birthright: Cities of the Sun – July’s Campaign of the Month! If you have a lust for adventure, then ready yourself, for we prepare to speak with Joedylan2000, GM of this gem.

Award Winning!
