Mad Matt Watches A Star Trek: VOY S2E13 Prototype

This is my series where I watch a random star trek episode, and write my thoughts as they occur. There are likely spoilers.

Back to Voyager today. It’s interesting- In my Trek, I haven’t been below Season 4 of Deep Space 9, nor have I been above Season 2 of Voyager. So I’m catching only the good parts of one and the bad parts of the other. So I’ve been told, anyway. Continue reading “Mad Matt Watches A Star Trek: VOY S2E13 Prototype”

Sometimes Freedom is Wrong (in a D&D context)

I play a lot of D&D. And when I’m not playing about it, I’m reading about it. And when I’m not reading, I’m writing about. Or, at the very least, thinking about it. A big swath of my time is spent with my mind on the game and so its no surprising when my interpretation of the game seems a little far fetched. You don’t know the bubbles I’ve seen.

Today, I want to take an unusual stance, one I’m not sure how solid the footing is, nor how big the space to maneuver. It may not be a defensible position, and I probably shant hold it  “What if players having a choice is a bad thing?

… this is probably going to get messy. Continue reading “Sometimes Freedom is Wrong (in a D&D context)”

12S 12M: This is starting to look like a bad idea (basically, an RPG ramble…)

Black Friday Weekend, I was at my local game store to pick up something I ordered and was persuaded to shop around a bit. I picked up a game entitled TimeWatch, and with my ordered in copy of the Doctor Who RPG, I set out hoping to not spend more money.

Little did I know this one chance purchase would haunt me for a month, and cast a grim shade on my plans for the new year. Continue reading “12S 12M: This is starting to look like a bad idea (basically, an RPG ramble…)”

5e Megadungeon Project: Briefing Document (Version 2: Brief Harder)

With bits and pieces I’ve gleaned from our session, and a bit more research into the concept, this is the next version of the Megadungeon Briefing Document. It’s not necessary that you read this to play, but it is very helpful. (A lot of this is Copy/Paste from the last document. Changes and information new to this version are in red.

Mad Matt Watches A Star Trek: ENT S4E15 Affliction (Part 1)

This is my series where I watch a random star trek episode, and write my thoughts as they occur. There are likely spoilers.

Ya know, I’m curious about what the break down in quality when compared with number of words in the title. I’m not sure if my Excel-Fu is strong enough to make that table. I’ll look at it in the future. Continue reading “Mad Matt Watches A Star Trek: ENT S4E15 Affliction (Part 1)”

Mad Matt Watches A Star Trek: DS9 S4E07 Little Green Men

This is my series where I watch a random star trek episode, and write my thoughts as they occur. There are likely spoilers.

Not going to liw, this episode opens with me humming the Smashmouth song “Who’s there.” You know, because of the title. Continue reading “Mad Matt Watches A Star Trek: DS9 S4E07 Little Green Men”

5e Mega Dungeon: First session debrief etc

This part 3 or so of my mega dungeon escapades. Part 1 is here, Part 2 is also here. You don’t really need to read them in order, but it might help you know what I am talking about…

So, after I came up with the idea on Saturday, I ran the first session on Tuesday, which is pretty impressive, I think. A lot of that was designing the tables that, while not 100% complete, are 100% reusable. So if I needed to make a new dungeon, I could. But, ideally, “Megadungeon means never having to say ‘Let’s start from Square 1’Continue reading “5e Mega Dungeon: First session debrief etc”

5e Megadungeon Project: Briefing Document

So, in continuation of my last D&D post, there are some information and tweaks that need to be addressed real quick, so people can know what to make for characters and such. This is that for the first test run of the concept. If I make a new one of these, I’ll post in big red letters with a link. But for now, use this.
