I picked up the Bubblegum Crisis and VOTOMS manuals more out of interest in the licensed source material than anything else. I picked up Champions: The New Millennium because it happened to be racked next to those other two games. Okay, maybe there’s a little more to it than that. The third edition of Champions […]

Necromunda marked the end of my days as an active tabletop gamer. Most of my gaming pals had scattered to the four winds, and the ones I did manage to keep in contact with were busy with other concerns. We’d reminisce about the “good old days” during our increasingly infrequent meet-ups and float the idea […]

I was supposed to attend the University of Wisconsin in Madison. I applied, got accepted, paid the deposit, and even managed to snag a dorm room despite the cautionary language about housing availability in the school’s admissions prospectus. Unfortunately, my weird legal status — where my grandmother had custody but my father still held legal […]

Looking back at my RPG purchases from that year, 1989 was apparently “The Year of the Expensive Hardback.” I bought three of the damn things during those twelve months, each one wielding an outsized influence that went beyond the gaming table.

During that stretch, my interest in role-playing games became eclipsed by […]

The two months following my mother’s death felt longer than the sixteen years before it and the twenty-nine years since. The psychic wound was so raw, the trauma so unprecedented, that even the the most minute details permanently imprinted themselves into my memory. I spent the night of her death at a paternal aunt’s house, […]

I got into role-playing games during the market correction which followed the fad-driven boom times of the early 1980s, when ads for the D&D Basic Set dropped out of “respectable” publications and slid back into the realm of funnybooks. There were no dedicated game shops within biking distance of Woburn, and the places which did […]

For this week’s installment of Nobody’s Favorites, tadalafil I’ve decided to turn my baleful gaze upon the superteam known as The Champions. Cool it, gerontologist fanboy. I don’t mean the 1970s assemblage of Marvel b-listers that has become the subject of many an overfond memory, but rather the forgettable crew of role playing leavings that […]
