The Gearcast Episode 9: Classes and Archetypes

Hey everyone! We’re back once again this Friday with a new cast about Classes and Archetypes in your RPGs! Join Cat and myself as we talk about the ups and down of using classes in your game, what kinds of things to think about when designing a class based system, and what some of our favorite class based games are. Until next time!


Tales from Mu: Isle of the Throneless King — page 1

Hey there! As a sort of combination adventure/world primer, I’ve been working on a side project for the site – Tales from Mu! A series of comics to help everyone understand how the world works, get adventure ideas, and even get across some of the mechanics. The first installment is titled the Isle of the Throneless King, and I’ll be putting up new pages for the next few days to get the introduction out of the way, and will then be switching over to a more paced schedule of Monday and Wednesday afterwards. I’ll also have a better set up for the comics here soon, so stay tuned! But for now, enjoy!
