PbF games were my first experience with RPGs (or at least actually playing them instead of just reading the rulebook) and I've loved them ever since. I got started in the 2014 PbF Newbie Initiative and soon began to participate in more and more games. With the list growing ever longer I figured it was time to try and organize them a wee bit so here we go:


Total PbF Games Completed: 32
Lost in the static: 3

Currently Playing: 3

Currently Running: 1

God bless,

GM: Mulligans

One of the PbF Newbie Initiative games I joined. I'm playing as Zabai the gnome rogue, a greedy but goodhearted thief helping discover what has happened to some missing villagers and hopefully put an end to the creature(s) plaguing the town.

In the end our small party overcame the dastardly schemes of the die roller (okay, so it did give us a few natural 20s... and a whole lot of single digits) to save all but one of the villagers, the lone one being caught in an unfortunate case of mistaken identity as he was transformed into a vampire spawn at the time. The vampire responsible for transforming the villagers was slain and the two councilmen, who had been kidnapping villagers and bringing them to the altar (beneath which the vampire lived) under the illusion that they were making a noble sacrifice to Teristia on behalf of the town, were taken back to Hallid to answer for their crimes.

The second PbF Newbie Initiative game I joined. In this one I play as Nathaniel (Ned) Wright, a monster hunter from the Spanish colonies who was flung into the future after an encounter with his nemesis, vampire pirate captain Claes (Blood) Blauvelt. Ned is now investigating a Canadian port as an agent of STAMP. Things seem to be going well apart from attacks of mobs of zombie workers, swarms of bugs, emotionally unstable teammates, and the rest of the usual issues.

This game was, to quote Ned, bloody brilliant. It very nearly fell apart when the other players involved dropped out but thanks to the magic of S.T.A.M.P (and a sizable group of amazing players from the newbie initiative) most of the agents from the other games flew in to reinforce the mission and take on the lich together. Altogether a grand total of nine different players were involved at different times in its nearly year and a half long run. Not every character made it out but the group still triumphed in the end (after making it through zombie workers, giant bugs, flying machines, container pyramids, splitting the party, one bony lich complete with canopic jars, and some temporal wonkiness) and are now free to engage in some much needed relaxing and drinking at the bar at the Iceberg.

GM: philfry

My first non-newbie initiative PbF. We are attempting the whole campaign and have only just started so currently I am playing Elias, a nervous worrywart of a squire, with plenty more generations of knights to come later.

After more than a RL year, the first year of the great campaign is complete. From squires to knights, the Hounds of Sarum have come a long way through mysterious prophecies, a conspiring heir, a captured monarch, encounters of a Saxon-ish kind, and less than hospitable neighbours. Elias even managed to take some time out from being a nervous worrier to go full berserker in the Battle of Mearcred Creek.

And that was only the beginning...

Another campaign just starting. I play as Frey, a blunt frostlen (a people who specialize in ice magic) with a thirst for adventure. Currently on our way to find the lost elf city of Lardragel and rid it of the giant moth menace.

This game went on hiatus as the GM needed a break and more time for RL issues. It was fun to see the unique characters and we were approaching a fight but I don't know if it will ever pick up again and for the moment it is most definitely stalled.

And now the GM has returned so the great spider battle commences! (At a undetermined pace. Now more or less a hiatus until the next post).

I've played Project Ninja Panda Taco once before and was pleasantly surprised by it so when Carrie mentioned she wanted to try it I jumped at the chance to play. Handling set up and rules questions is yours truly, Grand Emperor Atticus. Obviously he is the best evil genius and deserves to take over the universe but first he must defeat the other nefarious Masterminds: Kitty-U, Herr Doktor Verketzerung, Professor Aldus Wormcrumpet, Angel McTentacle, and Admiral Snackbar. Formidable foes to be sure.

In the end Angel McTentacle stood triumphant as conqueror of the universe after a close game of evil schemes and foiled plans. Two minions, Dingbat and BiteSize, also received a well earned promotion after collecting the most tool belt items.

After myself and some others commented on Sam/Bifford's picture of an old Asterix solo adventure game, he kindly decided to attempt running it as a multiplayer game. So now Asterix, Obelix (whose decisions are made by yours truly), and Dogmatix are off to Britain for some magic mistletoe.

In the end, we were done in by a missing coin bag quite literally one step away from success. Ah well, it was fun and Asterix, Obelix, and Dogmatix will simply have to find some other way to get their magic mistletoe.

GM: Mulligans
From gallery of Kezle

A continuation of the Pathfinder Newbie Initiative game The Scourge of Hallid. We've leveled up and are ready to begin our voyages in the Inner Sea. Travelling to Cheliax, Zabai and the rest of the party are planning a prison break to save the wrongfully imprisoned father of their employer.

How to sum up the game? Everything goes horribly wrong because the die roller wants to kill us. Still, our little party survived (I have no idea how) and, after an undignified flight from the prison including several belly flops into the moat and a series of horribly aimed attacks at a certain demon warden, we completed the mission and delivered the father of our employer from the prison. Zabai spent most of the game missing attacks and (nearly) getting killed before making it out with only 1HP to spare. It's going to be a while before anyone can convince him to go near a prison again, no matter how much gold they offer him.

A play-test of Karl Larsson's game, Scavengers. I played as Cashia the Appraiser on a small crew of scavengers setting out to make some quick creds. Two runs completed with only a few near death experiences and liberal use of plasma grenades. Cashia managed to scrape together 35 credits for her personal hoard, enough to live in comfort for a good few years... or fund another scavenging run.

The kickstarter for Scavengers is currently going on (and has already surpassed its goal!). For more information head on over here: Kickstarter RPG projects - 2015.

14/3/15 - Successfully kickstarted!

5th of January 2015 - STALLED (April 2015)

GM: oberon166

Don't Walk in Winter Wood is a storytelling game of folkloric horror with simple mechanics. The characters are 'walkers' who venture into the dreaded Winter Wood. I'm playing Anne Ward, a young Teacher who enters Winter Wood on a quest for Revenge against those who have belittled her.

This game has stalled. The players are willing to continue but I don't know when/if this will ever progress. It's unfortunate since a nice atmosphere was building and I was enjoying the game. Hopefully it might pick up again in the future.

Officially closed off as of 20 February 2016.

11th of March 2015 - 31st of March 2015 COMPLETE

Run by: Me

A short little parlour game in which a group of friends create a murder scenario together by taking turns playing the detective and the suspects they create. We have a crazy cast of animal suspects who will be interviewed by the detective until we can work out just who murdered Mr. Crow.

The suspects were Mr. Dugong, Lord Wombat, Colonel Tarsier, Mme Ocelot, and Captain Meerkat. Two rounds of questioning revealed plenty of secrets including a stolen gold bar, crates of stolen relics masquerading as bog water, and the necklace of Pharaoh Milef Instep III. Ultimately the detective pieced together the clues and the partners in crime, Mme Ocelot and Lord Wombat, were brought to justice.

The rules are available free: HERE

A game of Shadowrun (5th Edition). I will be playing as Nao Himura, a private investigator of the magical sort. She and a mismatched group of runners are off to repair two signal repeats in the Containment Zone in Chicago. What could possibly go wrong?

Two signal repeat fixes, one deserted research facility investigation, and one case of find the missing homeless person later, we finished the mission with relatively little trouble. We skipped out on a big chunk of the investigation/plot when the team didn't go deeper into the research facility (but then the lab was full of corpses in the aftermath of some kind of attack, so, you know, didn't seem like the best plan at the time) but still made it to the end and now we're ready to tackle mission 2.

Microbadge: I'm free of my curse! The 72 Curses of Caliph Asrar
17th of May 2015 - 20th of July 2015 COMPLETE

Run by: adularia25

Carrie is playtesting her new game of horrible/hilarious curses. In this GMless game, the players are Royal Curse Testers for a week. The Caliph Asrar is a powerful sorcerer who can grant your heart's desire but first you must prove yourself worthy. Each day there is a new curse and each day you must handle it with dignity and honor. Last until the end of the week without going mad or losing face and all curses will be lifted and your desire granted. Lose face and, well, curses are rather permanent.

Who will prove themselves worthy, risking all to gain their heart's desire? We'll soon find out...

I played as the ever-anxious Salsmus who was the most disgraceful of curse testers and, after blundering his way through seven days of curses, he was stuck with eyes of shadow and his dreams causing sandstorms. No chance of getting his wish granted (or even his final curses lifted) but at least he can still knit.

I'm playing as Finnian Quinn, an elf technomancer who likes to masquerade as a shaman and is only a teensy bit mental, in this heist heavy game of Shadowrun where we will be working for the mysterious Raiders.

The runners set out with half (maybe a quarter) of a plan and looted what they could, bringing out most of the area's gang and Knight Errant fighters in the process. In the end (after one stubborn lock and the revival of a mostly dead Finnian), the entire van had to be airlifted out via a new ally who arrived with their helicopter.

RPG Item: The Orc in the Well
Microbadge: Orcs Must Die fan At the Bottom of a Well
17th of June 2015 - 6th of July 2015 COMPLETE

Run by: Me

Trying out the roleplaying poem, The Orc in the Well, as a short and simple PbF.

We aimed for five rounds but ended after four. An interesting game that I still think could work well as a PbF game but I will have to try it again and see if it is possible to keep up the required momentum. Without a fast posting rate I think even five rounds might be too much but it would depend on the group.

RPG Item: Psi Run

29th of June 2015 - 7th of April 2016 COMPLETE

Run by: downeymb

Psi Run looks like an interesting game so when I saw downeymb wanted to run this for the 2015 GM Challenge I pestered and begged asked to play. I'm playing as 'Lia' (she is fairly sure that is not her name but it is all she remembers so why not use it?), a woman who can exchange human traits.

Most everything went wrong along the way but in the end the runners found the secret lab where their brains (and others) were kept in vats. Lia (or L.E.E.A) still has unanswered questions but after absorbing the memories of the brain, partly her brain, behind all this, she is ignoring the past and concentrating on the future.

Run by: jasri

Jonas is running Travelogue: A Tapestry of Tales, a game he designed for the 2014 24 Hour RPG Contest, as part of Winter Fest II - A Celebration of Homegrown content and I jumped in to join the game of swapping stories. Each character shares or has the opposite of three traits and I'm playing as Halik, a man who has encountered evil and is haunted by a failure in his past as he is a danger to his community.

25. RPG Item: The Dracula Dossier: Director's Handbook [Average Rating:9.35 Overall Rank:460]
RPG Item: The Dracula Dossier: Director's Handbook
Microbadge: Night's Black Agents RPG fan The Dracula Dossier - The Signal
24th of July 2015 - 21st of September 2015 COMPLETE

GM: karlkrlarsson

A game of Night's Black Agents, the version of the GUMSHOE rules that I have been dying to try. Karl aims to run the whole Dracula Dossier campaign which looks like a whole lot of vampire-spy-thriller awesome. I am currently playing as Marcus Finch, a 'journalist' of less than truthful news, who has gotten mixed up in the vampire conspiracy and is on the trail to unravel the truth behind the mysterious dossier.

A short introduction operation that ended with the group being forced to accept the idea that vampires are very real and very dangerous (seeing one of your friends have their throat ripped out can do that).
