BECMI Basic D&D Now RPG Research's Introductory D&D Version of Choice BECMI Basic D&D Now RPG Research's Introductory D&D Version of Choice
by Hawke Robinson — last modified Jun 29, 2019 02:42 PM

As has been discussed in many of our weekly broadcasts, research meetings, talk shows, and board meetings, we haven't been happy with D&D 5e's introductory approach for people that have never role-played before. After years of experimentation, months of debate, and weeks of training, we're officially beginning the transition to use BECMI's Basic D&D as introduction to RPG instead of D&D 5e for ages 10+. For ages 4/5+ we're happily still using No Thank You Evil (NTYE).

Controversial Figures in Fandom - Persona Non Grata Research Resources? Controversial Figures in Fandom - Persona Non Grata Research Resources?
by Hawke Robinson — last modified Mar 10, 2019 01:04 PM

Once again someone has become (or apparently was for some time) persona non grata because of some terrible words or deeds. I'd never had any awareness of this person, but have seen over the past week a LOT of threads discussing. This lead me to wondering, is there anywhere someone outside of these insular community in-groups could find information about the controversial figures in various fandoms?

Looking for Specific Type of Live-Action Role-Playing Game Combination
by Hawke Robinson — last modified Mar 17, 2019 01:14 PM

A lot of larps are either more combat oriented or more freeform oriented. We're looking for something that is as close to a heroic, "good guys only", tabletop role-playing game, but includes moving around physically, but does not allow any physical contact, and isn't overly focused on combat. Anyone know of something actually published, with adventures, that fits these criteria? This is for atrisk and incarcerated populations.

Variations of this happen so often that I generally don't bother posting about it anymore. Typically anywhere from once per month to once per week, I encounter something in the ballpark of these negative attitudes about role-playing gamers/gaming from the inculcated myths. But this past Friday was exceptional, with 3 separate families forbidding their children!
