Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Started playing with AD&D 1e and GMing with AD&D 2e. Ran D&D 3.x, 4e briefly, then became a fan of indie games and the OSR. Particularly fond of GMless and short-form games because they suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

comment How to transform a tragic hero into a villain?
Playing a few games of Fiasco would give armfuls of examples of how good intentions can result in terrible people.

comment How to transform a tragic hero into a villain?
@Johnny I suppose a game of Microscope is often hard to grasp when you're not one of the players. I'm surprised this has got an upvote! I'm getting the feeling that this isn't the sort of change you meant, rather looking for more of a storybook corrupting-the-hero kind of thing?

@aramis Yes, that's an odd word choice, and search-engine hostile to boot. Fixed.

copyedit, overhaul tags (clearly this is a 3.x question), replace "reagent" and "perk" translation errors with "spell component(s)" and "feat"
