I've been lite on posts for a while as external life matters make time precious, so here's a "quick thoughts" blog to see how some short post obsevations work....
Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes
First, Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes is amazing and any D&D 5E fan needs to check it out. It's thick with ideas, monsters and also contains some material reprinted from the scenario books, meaning you don't need to access (say) Out of the Abyss if you need Orcus's stats.
This is a thing, being done by the man behind the enigmatic Forge site where people analyze games to the point where they stop being fun. I kid! Sorta. But that doesn't mean Ron Edwards isn't the right man to start a Kickstarter bringing back Champions in approximately it's 3rd incarnation from the late 80's, an interesting concept which I feel I must back to see how it all works out.
Playing Genesys Core got me sufficiently intrigued about other recent generic systems I have ignored that I decided to revist Cypher Core. Something happened not long after: the system "clicked" for me and now I am very keen on running it soon. More to come!
The more I read this never-ending thread over at rpg.net the more I grow weary of the entire concept. I need to stay away from all playtest posts, they are killing my interest in whatever Pathfinder is polymorphing in to.
