Space Drake

The space drake is a giant dragon-like creature nearly 60 feet long. The drake is comfortable both on the ground, in space, and in atmosphere. It walks on the ground on four powerful legs and can fly swiftly on vast wings that sprout from its back. Its mouth is filled with razor sharp teeth as long as a man, and its tail can swat helicopters from the sky. Its most dangerous weapon, though, is its breath: the space drake can spit devastating lightning from its maw.

The average space drake is sapient but not very intelligent (IQ 7) with average agility (DX 10). It is aggressive in a fight, maneuvering to face its enemies so it can use its breath weapon. The armored scales are also thinner on its hind quarters, leading the drake to protect its rear.

Dungeon Crate, May 2016

For my birthday last month, my friends got me a subscription to DungeonCrate.  This service is the RPG-focused entry in the current "crate" craze, where you pay a subscription fee and a box of themed stuff is sent to your home monthly, quarterly, or whatever. Well, my first crate arrived today, and I thought I'd go through it here on the blog.

Discworld RPG Review

The Discworld Roleplaying Game is a standalone fantasy RPG written by Phil Masters with rules based on GURPS Fourth Edition by Steve Jackson Games. It is the second edition of Discworld RPG, following the original GURPS Discworld published in 1998 and reprinted under the Discworld RPG name in 2002.

For those who may not be familiar, Discworld is the setting of an extremely popular series of fantasy novels written by Sir Terry Pratchett. The Disc consists of a flat, circular plane resting on the backs of four elephants who in turn stand on the shell of an enormous turtle which swims through space. It began as a fairly traditional — if satirical — fantasy world, but through over 40 novels, Pratchett advanced the setting into a rich canvas on which to poke fun at the peculiarities of modern life.

The first edition of the Discworld RPG was based on GURPS Third Edition, and it included GURPS Lite, a pared down version of the core system. Still, it relied perhaps too much on knowledge of th…
