The Babylon 5 Roleplaying Game: 2nd Edition

My copy of The Babylon 5 Roleplaying Game 2nd Edition arrived yesterday and I’ve been flipping through it with increasing excitement ever since then. An older product of Mongoose Publishing this isn’t something you’re likely to find at every friendly local gaming store, but with some determined searching copies can still be found. All of the races you’d expect are represented including Narns, Centauri, and Minbari. I was really pleased to see that a few of the Non-Aligned races are also present especially the Pak’Ma’Ra. There’s a great selection of classes and you can even play a telepath. I haven’t had a chance to play it yet, but that’s going to happen as soon as possible.



The Gamers: Dorkness Rising

I first saw This movie right after I joined my first gaming group, and it’s still one of my favorites of all time. Blending tabletop humor with a bit of action and some fantastic roleplaying this is the sort of movie everyone can enjoy. Bards, adventure design, world building, and roleplay are all central elements to the story. The party Flynn the Fine a death prone bard, Luster a peasant hating sorceress, Brother Silence a less than saintly monk, Daphne the cunning and charismatic fighter, and Sir Osric the Chaste a virtuous paladin NPC. As the party journey to reclaim the deadly Mask of Death from the villainous Mort Kemnon they face goblins, evil wizards, and other perils.




The Dragonborn of Dungeons and Dragons Next

With the final playtest packet for Dungeons and Dragons Next released the new edition is still being tweaked and tested with a few final changes. One of my favorite things about the latest edition is the changes the designers made to the Dragonborn character race. The additions of new lore for the race and extra physical characteristics give the Dragonborn a little more depth than they’ve had in the past.
