Game Information

Game Name
The role-playing World of Glorantha was created as a semi-public-domain project by Greg Stafford around 1966 as a mental exercise. Eventually, Greg published a wargame based on his world called White Bear and Red Moon. In fact, Chaosium was founded to allow Stafford to publish this boardgame! This game later became the excellent Dragon Pass game. White Bear and Red Moon was enough of a hit to spawn a second war game, Nomad Gods, and, more importantly, inspired some D&D fans to write a gaming system that would allow role-playing in Glorantha. Thus was RuneQuest born.

The Magic Realm chit system---a completely different solution to D+D style fantasy mechanics. I've decided to start a series where I take games in my collection and think about them via the one mechanic I think defines them. Today it's Magic Realm, inspired by a thread in trash talk about favorite fantasy combat mechanics. Magic Realm has a lot going on in it. Too much, really, making it a difficult game to play unless you've made it into a lifestyle game. I believe that is why no one...

I’ve always had a somewhat romanticized view of the Soviet Union. It’s not that I particularly agree with communism or that I’ve ever spent time in the country. I think it’s more that it’s like the bizarro version of the United States. It’s fascinating to think that, for as afraid as the US was during the Cold War, that our “enemies” had their own fears and struggles about us. Because of that 40-year struggle, the Russian culture has always felt like the other side of the coin to me, a counterpart that we’ve never been able to figure out....
