Excuses Excuses

Ok ok so it has been a while again.

Illness, injury, work load, working on improvements to the house, life obligations, friend obligations and more.

Ok and lets add Dr Who’s new season and Flash and Arrow dropping on NetFlix. Just for complete disclosure.

Needless to say there is a lot going on in life right now and while the blog here is a pleasure it had to take a back seat. I will still have things going on this weekend so I have to put the blog off until next week.

The plan for next week is to do a review of an awesome gift I have received. The Wheel of Time RPG. Done in the d20 system for D&D 3.0.

Now then while you wait for a full on blog post I want to ask folks out there a question about the d20 system for D&D 3.0. There were a lot of licensed and original settings created using it. When we talk licensed we have to talk about things like

  • Wheel of Time
  • Red Star
  • Star Wars
  • Farscape

And in the other category you might want to think about games that made versions of themselves in d20 like

  • Guardians of Order – Big Eyes Small Mouth
  • White Wolf – Trinity setting (Aeon, Aberrant, Adventure)
  • White Wolf – World of Darkness
  • TSR?? – Gamma World

As to original settings, there were dozens with one of my personal favorites being Spy Craft.

Now then with all these products basing themselves out of the same SRD (System Reference Document) and supposedly tied by the OGL (Open Game License), you would think that they all would be balanced and play well with each other. Welllllll that was not really the case. Folks tried but… yeah… did not always work that well.

So I was wondering if any of the readers out there have ever done cross overs, or super crossovers and just tossed balance to the winds and said screw it if you can find a character class and race bring it to the table and lets rock?

I did it a few times with a few game groups and it got… strange… quick. What happened to you?

Ok so thats it for now. Gimme the dice, I gotta see if I can roll up another excuse from the d18 table of excusology table…
