Chris Stevens

In Chris's opinion, the very best vices are dirt bikes, rock music, and gaming, while the very best medicine is fatherhood. If he could just learn to balance them all, he'd live forever. He's much more creative than intelligent, often wakes up belligerent, and ponders many things insignificant. Lastly, in an effort to transform his well-fed body, P90X, Roller Blades, and Food are all laughing at him. And the pain continues.

Why I love Savage...

To start it off, they shot a grenade that she was holding [Read the article]

It’s the same thing for [Read the article]

Shadowrun: Anarchy... What the Heck?!

It’s no secret… Shadowrun (any edition) has not exactly been a rules-lite game.  It’s a meaty cyberpunk-fantasy dystopian setting with a very solid fan-base, and it also comes with a hefty set of rules for a very “simulationist” feel.  I’m not saying that’s a bad thing (I have my favorite edition and have played many, many hours of it); I’m saying that that type of [Read the article]

A "Who am I?" Quicksheet for memorable & unique characters

So I was hanging out over at Guild Master Gaming, and I saw that Daniel had posted “A Tip to Help Create Player Characters and Non-Player Characters.”  I liked the idea and whipped up a quick character trait sheet for my own games  You can hand this to players and tell them to fill it out as they desire, or you can use it for [Read the article]
