Banner image by George Doutsiopoulos A few of the other nurses and I have been watching Rings of Power. None of my players have played a table-top RPG before and the Adventure Game Engine is my go-to for introducing new players to the hobby.

AGE is about simplicity, and I did not want to … Continue reading Age of the Old Republic Preview: Legendary Characters
Been playing through KOTOR as part of my research for this project. Advance Force Powers require the Force-user to be familiar with more basic powers before learning them, much like spells work in Dragon AGE. However, unlike regular Force Powers, Advanced Force Powers can only be used ONCE per combat encounter. Kind of like your big boom daily powers. BATTLE MEDITATION (Senses) Prerequisite: Inspire Target … Continue reading Age of the Old Republic Preview: Advanced Force Powers
