I’ve just posted my latest 7th Sea villain of the week Mickhail Mihaylov.

7th Sea Villain of the Week

Saturday, September 3rd, 2016

Started a new section of villains for 7th Sea villains of the week.  Aim is (shock) to put out a new villain each week at least for a while.  They’re not big bads just characters that can occupy heroes for a little while.  One villain seemed a bit lonely so for the first week only […]

7th Sea 2nd Edition Likely Number of Raises

Saturday, June 25th, 2016

7th Sea 2nd edition uses an interesting mechanism to decide how well a character does with an action.  I wanted to have some idea of how many raises a starting character is likely to have depending on their Trait, Skill and any bonus dice they might get.  So I ran some simulations earlier using a […]

7th Sea 2nd Edition Traits

Saturday, June 4th, 2016

Just a few thoughts about the patterns of points that can be assigned to Traits in 7th Sea 2nd Edition. In second edition the rules create only a few possible patterns for assigning numbers that make up a character’s Traits. Here they are ordered by highest Trait first… Trait Total Points A B C D […]

7th Sea 2nd Edition Kickstarter

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016

I’m not good at picking favourites. Don’t ask me to pick my favourite book, film or TV show. You’ll get a list. This holds true for Role Playing Games with D&D Ravenloft, Conspiracy X, Panzerfaüste, Call of Cthulhu and SLA Industries all likely to feature (and yes I know Panzerfaüste is a skirmish war game […]

Panzerfaüste Squads

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

I dug out some old files over the weekend of statistics for squads for Panzerfaüste I wrote after buying my copy of Panzerfaüste 1st edition at a Bifrost quite a few years ago now. I’ve tweaked them a bit where there are miniatures in the Hysterical Games Panzerfaüste kickstarter to match the figures and their […]

The Panzerfaüste Song Book and other odds and ends

Monday, October 26th, 2015

With Hysterical Games’ Panzerfaüste Kickstarter well underway I thought I’d dig up some old bits and pieces for Panzerfaüste and post them here. Just two pages to start things off… An expanded version of the The Panzerfaüste Song Book that appeared in Ragnarok 55. Now with added instrumental support for singers and some other tweaks. […]
