Five-Minute Languages

J.R.R. Tolkien spent years developing his fantasy languages and then wrote a handful of books to test them out (you’ve probably never heard of them, they’re pretty obscure). Klingon and Dothraki were developed for film and TV – carefully encoded over time with great care. But you’re you. You need to crank out some gobbledygook for game night and you need it fast. Well, hold on to your diphthongs and protect your predicates because we’re doing a crash course on fast-and-dirty language creation.

Barroom Blitz

Low Level Loans: Begin by Borrowing?

Can a player taking a loan at character creation be good for a game? Should the GM even entertain the idea? Yes! (But only with the right player, for the right character, and for the right kind of campaign and setting.) In truth, when carefully managed, a loan can pay out huge gameplay returns.

April’s Fool Contest

This Contest Is No Joke!

Ah yes, April. The month containing the one day of the year when you cannot believe anything you see or read on the internet. Together with Engine Publishing, we’d like to take this month and put some good spin on it by coming up with a contest for fools. Literally. We’d like you to create a fool for folks to use in their games.

Award Winning!
