A combat module by Steve Jackson, published by Metagaming in 1977; the first component of The Fantasy Trip.
These are some very think-y questions! Including a lot about beasts and monsters. I want to clarify some things about my response to Sean. First, here are the three “roots” of critical hits in text. They’re not intended to be in order, as I think they were simultaneous at this scale of history: List of […]
I think we have created a solid mini-curriculum about some critical features of play. The first part is Movement and maps, the second is Horses on squares, and here’s my next part. I definitely include the comments to the prior posts as part of it. If you find any other posts or sets of comments […]
Here’s a blessed event insofar as I can finally talk about role-playing content and procedures that are ordinarily kicked down the road. For me, Adept Play is a rousing success insofar as ideas can be introduced and resolved enough so that “next ideas” can actually be addressed, and I don’t have to spray down the […]

It’s divided roughly into some “how we met D&D” talk, thoughts on fantasy in role-playing and fantasy […]
Here’s part 1 of my series “Finding D&D,” or rather, my first pass at working it up into a formal presentation. I’m looking forward to a fair piece of response for it. There’s some history, based on several discussions at my old Adept forum, and a lot of private correspondence since then across a number […]
