A Sporting Affair

Few would deny how influential sports is in modern society. Wars are fought all the time, but the world pays attention when FIFA hosts the World Cup, where the Olympics are played, and who wins. The amount of money that FIFA, NFL, MLB, NBA, and NHL each bring in is staggering. This influx of money . . . → Read More: A Sporting Affair

It’s a Good Day to Die

One of the trickier things to handle in a campaign is a player’s character death. Over many years of roleplaying, I’ve had my share of character deaths. Not being a computer game, there is no reload/respawn point for the character. If the system has it set up, you can get the character resurrected from the . . . → Read More: It’s a Good Day to Die

Gamer… Engage!

A GM wears many hats in most typical campaigns. Among their varied responsibilities are setting the scenes, creating the adversaries, keeping the world in motion, and adjudicating challenges the protagonists face. However, the players, in the Forged Front’s opinion, are the most important part of the whole equation… they are the main stars. Without the . . . → Read More: Gamer… Engage!

The Value of Belief

Belief is an interesting thing. In the name of religion, countless conflicts have occurred across the ages.

The 50000 Foot View, Part 1

Welcome back to the Front.

Last week in Framing the Picture, I discussed different options that a GM can use to get the players up to speed on the same page. So let’s look at the last fantasy world I shared with various players. For this exercise, I haven’t decided which area is going to . . . → Read More: The 50000 Foot View, Part 1

Framing the Picture

Welcome back to the Front. In a one-shot adventure, the GM has a relatively self-contained story idea to explore — maybe the gaming group wants to try out a new system or maybe they want to just run through a module. The players don’t have a whole lot to go on other than some general . . . → Read More: Framing the Picture

My Name Is … (Finale)

So the online game that I came up with my name was Mechwarrior 2. For whatever reason, my internet connection made it such that the easiest mech to fight in was a heavily armored Missile boat. I teamed up with a few friends locally and we became Clan Soulreaper.

As my handle, I chose Forged.
