Re: My Codex Nordica books have arrived!

How about a review and a look at what lies within? How much longer until we poor unwashed masses are allowed to purchase the book? A few months back, I had a chance to review the text before the PDF and early bird softcovers were sent out. You can read about it here: http://www.arcanacreations.blog...

Re: A question...

Not to be entirely on the serious bus with this, but we have gamers of all sorts. When relating to the source material, even if we play things entirely opposite from who we are in our day-to-day lives, it helps to see something of ourselves in the sourcebooks. Including things like non-binary notio...

Re: Black Libram of Nartarus

Honestly, I'm not sure if a reprint would be happening on this but I'm happy to see a PDF of it still available. The reason for this is that the material of the Black Libram was integrated in the new Haunted Highland Books (Player's Guide and CK's Guide -- not sure which but I think it split into bo...

Re: Rifts...

The worse part was character creation ... but once you've paid your dues, pulled out some hair, and cried and/or bled a bit, the system ran well. Very well. The Palladium system is detailed and works though if you are running something like Rifts, it will need a steady hand to run the game and maint...

There is no reason why you couldn't overlap the two but you don't need Rune Lore to enjoy Codex Nordica which is quite self-sufficient.

Re: Black Box?

Indiegogo allows for Paypal which is huge advantage and the problem with Kickstarter is that Amazon Payments is *not* used for projects created outside the US. You still use a Credit Card but not through the convenience of Amazon and that is a big one. I have seen some people in the US turned off b...

It's more because D&D is what we are all familiar with and really the game kind of started it all. I've heard of people use DM for those who run game even lik...
