April 4, 2016


70-luvulla pelaajat sijoittuvat itsensä tai pelinjohtajan toimesta tiettyyn tilanteeseen ja loppu jäi avoimeksi. Tarinat, konfliktit, tarpeet, seikkailut ja historia syntyivät itsekseen pelin aikana. 80-luvulla tuli muotiin toinen tapa tarinan muodostamiseen. Sijoitetaan pelaajat valmiiseen tarinaan, sijoittaja voi olla pelinjohtaja tai pelaaja itse. Äärimmäisessä tapauksessa, 2010-luvulla, Pathfinder RGP Adventure Pathit sisältävät oman kirjan pelaajille, jolloin kotiläksynsä opetellut […]

August 30, 2011


For a particular playing style, what Pathfinder RPG really is about is a simulation of an imagined world. There are NPC:s controlled by GM and NPC:s controlled by players. Yes, I said NPC:s not PC:s, more on this later. To get to the root of this, all you really need is the GM who is […]

August 14, 2009


Dungeons & Dragonsin uusin versio on julkaistu, posteljooni pamautti sääntökirjan (neljänä kappaleena koko porukallemme) postilaatikkoon yksi päivää jälkeen maailmanlaajuisen julkaisupäivän. Melkoinen järkäle!
