Dungeon World Wednesday: Anglekite kicked off nicely.
Dungeon World Wednesday: Anglekite kicked off nicely. We have a party of two veterans returning from season one and a whole host of new, interesting players ready to try and thwart the end of the world!
This session was fantastic! Everything fired off nicely. I engaged with a new way of starting a session (unique to the setting, but potentially adaptable to others, I expect to talk about this on the new Discern Realities) and the players had imaginative, colorful additions to the world we were describing.
This session reminds me why I love the Dungeon World system and makes me sooo excited for running more and more adventures in Magpie Games setting of Last Days of Anglekite!

Looking for a Halloween adventure on weekday that requires zero prep or game knowledge, and a small time commitment? Look no further! I am running Murderous Ghosts on Wed, Oct 26. The games will run from 630cst to 930cst.
Murderous Ghosts is a two player game. The game takes one hour to play, and I am making three hours available to play with three different players. If you have been wondering what a 1 v 1 game can do, this is a great one to try out! If you would rather scare than be scared, no worries! I will give the option to players to be the ghosts or the one trying to escape their clutches.
Due to recent changes with how Gauntlet organizes games, please post here if you are interested in playing. I have one player already, so that leaves two slots open! I will schedule the one hour of play with players individually within the 630cst to 930cst time slot. Happy Halloween!
Andy Hauge Michael G. Barford and I had a fantastic time with Microscope! We did something a little different with our game and decided that this session would be about the rise, fall, and legacy of an empire in a low magic fantasy setting. We had giant man-made water craft the size of several small islands, tribes cultivating dangerous spore-producing mushrooms, and a metal that fell from the sky that was lighter than water.
The part I want to highlight that was different than my other experiences was that we had almost all the action in this fantasy setting, but then occasionally would go to our “End of the bookend” period that we used as a modern, contemporary setting. This was amazing as it gave us a chance to step back and watch a scene of people in a modern era at a museum looking at objects from the past and reading about them, and sometimes the information from their history books was dead wrong to what happened in the past. We did not use this tactic often but it added a richer sense of the process being a part of history.
Also at the end we discussed what games we would want to play in the world we created. We discussed In a Wicked Age, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, and others. What do you all think are good games to dive into your Microscope generated worlds?
Again, a big thanks to my players, Michael (a first time Hangouts player!) and Andy!
A big thanks to my first time players of Jason Morningstar ‘s Fiasco.
A big thanks to my first time players of Jason Morningstar ‘s Fiasco. Timothy Bennett and Dylan Ross were fantastic in their debut of playing Fiasco in the Beast of Sucker Creek playset. We had a hell of a time getting ready to con a local media source with a hoax that turned real in a mad escape from the true beast after our attempts with costume and special effects failed. +1 dream to both of these first time players!
If you aren’t a listener of the Gauntlet Podcast (which you totally should listen) you may not know what this is. Basically it’s a segment from the show where the hosts talk about things (not necessarily RPG related) that are “giving them life.”
I want to say that VR is giving me life. The technology is finally there, the games and simulations are coming out. What’s one of the most interesting applications of this to me? Being able to simulate being in an 80s/90s arcade with neon lights and skee ball, upright game cabinets that can be programmed to run any game from when I was a kid. Using new tech to do the same old things is amazing.
