Blog Entry text/x-nemerle Photo of my Tabletop RPG Book Collection by admin — last modified Aug 18, 2015 02:49 AM
It took several photos roughly pasted together to make it all fit, so it's less than ideal, but this gives some idea. And actually this is about a year out of date (more has been added since), but it gives some idea. At some point I want to lay them all out on the floor and have the full covers photographed, but that is currently a daunting task, so it will have to just be the bindings for for now. Enjoy!

Posted by Hawke at Nov 03, 2014 09:56 PM - I'm concerned I'm overdoing it, and probably will have to back off after the holidays, but for now I am running a lot of RPG groups, streamlining my administrative processes of paperwork and such, planning for running games 5 days per week as a "job" as I get closer to RPG Research and RPG Therapeutics becoming a billable activity. For now, it's "just gaming" with some paperwork and process, here is a list of the many groups currently...

Blog Entry application/rls-services+xml Advice for beginning Game Masters / Dungeon Masters by admin — last modified Aug 18, 2015 02:50 AM
Posted by Hawke at Oct 06, 2014 05:41 PM - missed a request for advice from an aspiring new DM at https://www.youtube.com/user/rpgresearch/discussion , so I thought I would replicate that here. As many other sites have done, you could put out a new article daily on advice for running games, but hopefully this is useful to some. Happy Gaming!
Blog Entry Objective-C source code Hawke's d20 Hit Location and Critical Hit Severity System by admin — last modified Aug 18, 2015 02:50 AM
Posted by Hawke at Sep 26, 2014 07:55 PM - Filed under: DnD, 5th Edition, Dungeons & Dragons, Original Dungeons & Dragons, D&D Next, rpg, OD&D, D&D - How many times have you rolled that d20, added the bonuses, and had an awesome total (though not a “Nat 20”), and thought “What a waste of a great roll” because then you just roll your normal damage dice. Wouldn't it be nice if the greater the d20 hit roll, there would be a gradient of increasingly more severe consequences to the target being hit?

We will be starting first with Original D&D; boxed set, and then as 5th edition becomes available, consider either switching, or adding a 5th edition campaign. Here is information for getting started, with gaming schedule: Initially OD&D; Greyhawk Campaign. Hawke will DM first, then alternate with John Waite DMing the next, and back and forth. We meet every 2 weeks, Sundays at 9:00 pm. Though "officially" 9:00 pm to Midnight, if we're all up for it (like the "good ol' days"), we'll play later.
