Funny Farm

A thousand curses be on the name of thecesspit, who pointed me at this word-association puzzle thingy. As he so wisely said (and I so foolishly ignored), don’t click if you have things to do today.

Sheet Happens deadline soon!

Just a reminder that the Sheet Happens deadline for sending me your character sheets is on the 8th, just a few days away. Two in so far from very keen / well-organzied people… who will be next? There was a question about whether you should include a name for the game on the character sheet […]

You’re quick to compromise if you can help move the story forward, and get bored when the game slows down for a long planning session. You want to play out a story […]

El Complo

The title means I think The Conspiracy, and no doubt it contains all sorts of biting satire on the Mexican political system, but for our purposes it’s a nice little Flash game of the “make the little man do X” variety. Well, it wasted me some time. Edit: forgot to say, thanks karohemd for pointing […]
