Happy DM's Day, and belated Alternity Game Day

What is it they say about March…? Something about it coming in like a lion? I don’t know about roaring, but it sure did sneak up on me.

The corner of the internet I hang out on does this thing, GM’s Day (March 4th). And the corner of the corner of the corner has another day of remembrance, then day before: March 3rd is Alternity Game Day, commemorating Wizards of the Coast’s shuttering of the Alternity Generic Science Fiction Role Playing Game line.

DM's Workshop: Petra gets O.L.D.

I suppose the "No, this Handmaiden hasn't actually grown up" joke would wear a bit thin*, so I won't make it again.

DM's Workshop: Petra's Prepwork

The Handmaiden Petra took a bit more time to cobble together, since W.O.I.N. doesn't have full stats for a wide range of lycanthropes.

DM's Workshop: Jasna gets O.L.D.

If you haven't picked up ENPublishing's What's OLD is NEW system, you're missing out. It comes in three flavors -- O.L.D., N.O.W., and N.E.W. depending on whether or not you want to play fantasy/medieval, modern/near future action/adventure, or take to the stars in the far future. The best news, of course, is that the rules system is completely open, and you can find most (if not all) of the rules at the system's website, for free if you don't want to plonk down the ten or so bucks for one of the flavors of the core rules.

No, this post's title in no way means that everybody's favorite maker-of-trouble for a certain infamous villainous magic user has in any way grown up. Perish the thought!

Nuwmont 13, 998 AC: Kor Karrest, the Ringway

“What is this stuff?” I heard Gilliam ask.
“Breathe through yer filter, Uplander. Lest ye wan’it t’take root in yer pipes.”
