    Savage Worlds: Pathfinder

    IN SHORT…  I sometimes say that “I can play any game, but just not with everyone”. I think that statement applies to SW: Pathfinder for which I am a player in a campaign ran by some old-school players who tend to play the way I used to in the 90s. Crude jokes, PvP à gogo, coarse…

  • VersuS


    IN SHORT…  I had the pleasure of being invited to a session of VersuS, which is in the late stage of design and independent publication by Alexandre Joly (a.k.a.

    In nomine satanis / magna veritas

    IN SHORT… INS / MV was a bit of an iconic game for me. I “missed” it in the 90s when I started playing and was largely consumed by other games. I recently discovered that a 5th edition, with a lighter setting and ruleset than prior editions, had been published in 2015. I decided to…
