FLASH! AAAAAAH! Ok, I might not be able to sound like Freddy Mercury (but, honestly, who can?), but I can still dream. And in the Flash Gordon RPG, you can become part of the classic sci-fi world (I’ll even come and sing the theme song for you… but you probably wont want me to). This [&he...

While many of us love unicorns, it’s not everyone that thinks they’re so great, especially if they’re overrunning your Queendom, as they were doing in a land far, far away. Now, many conservationists will tell you that regulated hunting can be beneficial to a wild population. But th...

You might not think about it, but there’s a lot of different levels of fantasy RPG that you can play in. You can go for more of the high-fantasy that’s very Tolkienesque. Or you can go for the more non-fantasy fantasy settings along the lines of Howard. Aglaeca falls into that second cate...

Odin’s missing. Now, that might not seem so bad, if it’s just a quick jaunt, but this is pretty serious. The world tree, Yggdrasil, is shaking violently, its limbs possibly breaking and throwing the nine realms into chaos. The other Norse gods have decided that something must be done. Tha...
