Bill Heron – Gaming in Edinburgh and other RPG stuff

2013 RPGs – Looking forward

I’m going to try and write a bit more about the last year gaming-wise in a separate post (more on this to appear later). I’ve started doing this every year, as a sort of retrospective of things happening in the Edinburgh Games community, ORC and elsewhere. For now, here’s a very short post detailing some of my plans for 2013 RPGs-wise.

  • I’m trying to get the first part of the Mandragora: Ashes of Freedom RPG written, most likely using the FATE rules set.
  • There’s a blog article on “Magic as technology” that I want to try and finish.
  • I’m waiting on publication of my first RPG work for The Secret Fire RPG.
  • DMing an introductory D&D 4e campaign at ORC called A Watch upon the Border.
  • Possibly restarting Ashes of Freedom with DNDnext rules.
  • Running the AD&D adventures Dragon Mountain and Return to the Tomb of Horrors when the AD&D rules are republished in 2013.
  • Running Werewolf: the Apocalypse again – I got rid of my 1st edition stuff years ago, but got in on the 20th anniversary Kickstarter edition. When will you rage?
  • Running a game of the fantastic-looking Shadows of Esteren.
  • And finally… I’m forty in 2013, so I’m planning a wh40kforty event along with a friend (who also turns 40). We’re coming up with a linked campaign using various RPGs and battles in the wh40k universe, set in the Midwinter Expanse, a nebula of our own creation located close to Ultramar.

  • Have you played any of the D&D Next rules yet? I’ve run them a couple of times (once with the first rule set, and recently with the new set). Combat is quite fast, quick and dirty… and I’ve very nearly one-shotted PCs a couple of times. Feels pretty brutal all round, especially compared to 4th (but that’s not hard).

  • Not yet, but it’ll be interesting with Ashes of Freedom…
