Harvest Gaming 2021

Our second annual Harvest/Samhain Gaming event is coming up!

Check it out!

Still Here But Retired

Just stopped by to say I'm still here.

My games of Hackmaster died out when covid hit 18 months ago.

However since the beginning of Summer I have been running games at the same brick and mortar store.

Last game we ran was a play test of "Escape from Kabul" I'm designing for the Simulation & Wargaming folks. (They actually get paid for that kind of job.)

Otherwise I'm in retirement.

I put an old server in my garage and it runs old text games at

empire.game-host.org

[2021-01-11] Metamorphosis Alpha Characters - 3.5 Editions

Metamorphosis Alpha Characters - 3.5 Editions

I decided to make as close to the same character as I could over four editions of Metamorphosis Alpha. 1e, 3e (25th), 4e and S26 (5e). Maybe even compare to Gamma World 2e. I don't have the Amazing Engine version unfortunately.

We'll stick to Human but note some of the differences.
