What’s a warrant? What’s evidence, and how do you get it? When can the police shoot a guy? I thought these questions were easily answered, which means they weren’t. In Triune RPG, players take roles as enforcers–a special police unit dedicated to enforcing the Treaty of Pavonis Station and keeping angels, devils, and their human […]

In the Triune forums, there’s a discussion about how the game handles changes to the setting. That discussion made me think about one of my favorite rpgs of all time and a big influence on Triune. But first, some explanations. Every character is Triune has levels in the three paths: Heaven, Hell, and Hegemony. (Hypocrisy […]

How much combat should be in a roleplaying game? Of course that depends upon the audience, but most games have some level of fighting in the mix. (“What do you mean you parley? Grab your gun and shoot the bad guys already!”) This is what I’m wrestling with for Triune–how much should the player-characters engage […]

Fine, I’m way behind the video game curve. I just started playing Mass Effect, and while I like it (mostly because I made my character HOT!!!), I noticed something interesting in how the game handles character advancement.

While working on Triune, I’ve asked a lot of people for advice. (And received some I never asked for. Seriously, I’m not designing a D&D clone so stop recommending XP!) From Allen Varney to the fine folks at RPG.net, I’ve received tons of great ideas. But the best so far is to ask yourself a […]

We’ve added some new stuff to the forums for Triune. Under Setting, we’ve included an overview of the Hegemonic political hierarchy and a list of the angels, devils, and human sympathizers that make up the Hegemony Most Wanted. Under Game Rules & Mechanics, we’ve added two threads for discussing the prayers (aka kewl powers) available […]

Earlier, I raged a bit against Jack Chick, his pal William Schnobelen, and their belief that roleplaying games such as D&D are dangerous and Satanic. For the record, I think this is stupid, stupid, stooopid. I won’t pick apart their articles and uber-cool comic “tract”—why bother when the brilliant minds at MST3K have already done […]

Michael Tresca of Examiner.com put out an open request for interviews on RPG.net. Since I visit that site once a day or more, I stumbled across his request and offered to be an interviewee. He contacted me the next day, we traded emails, and there you go. My first interview! http://tiny.cc/o8m7u Now I just sit […]
