Initiative tracker/PC info sheet to be used with 4E *Updated*

Initiative tracking sheet preview

A little but invaluable tool I've used in my 4E games. I mark up player characters' passive perceptions and insights, plus any other important notes (that don't need to be secret) on this sheet, and when it's time to fight, initiatives are easy to mark on the left side of the sheet.

Below the tables there's a large empty space; you'll find use for it when you start calculating hp's of the enemies!

Savage Worlds Sword & Sorcery settings overview

The new Conan movie is out, and everyone wants to have their share of harsh attitude, strong beverages in crowded taverns, scantily clad wenches (or fierce and proud amazons), loinclothed barbarians and fearsome sorcerers. If you're Savage Worlds fan, below you'll find brief introduction to several S&S settings and sourcebooks for Savage Worlds. But first I'll mention very briefly some non-Savage Worlds Sword & Sorcery options.

Miniatures for Sword & Sorcery: Arcane Legions, a tempting alternative

I told you briefly about Arcane Legions miniatures in my first post about miniatures for Sword & Sorcery. Now I'll give you a bit more insight of these minis if you consider using them in a Sword & Sorcery game - or any ancient era/fantasy roleplaying game. I'll have to say again that I love these minis and would really like to use them for a roleplaying game, and with some additions they would work well with Beasts & Barbarians.

D&D minis for Sword & Sorcery: Priests & cultists

This is the second post in series showing miniatures suitable for a Sword & Sorcery roleplaying game. This time, you'll see some great picks from D&D miniatures for a Sword & Sorcery game.

Note that fixed minis may have different name somewhere - they often have one name for miniature and a different one for the miniature game (Roving swordmage might be called Male human swordmage) 

Miniatures for Sword & Sorcery: Intro

Clix for Sword & Sorcery

I've collected minis from various product lines for Sword & Sorcery roleplaying campaign for some time now. Recent discussion at Savage Worlds forums about what minis should be used for Beasts & Barbarians game gave me an idea  perhaps I should document my collections and help others to find miniatures for their Sword & Sorcery games.

From denial to Savage Worlds (Via 4E)

I wasn't immediately converted to Savage Worlds after finding it. I first disliked the idea of the system; As I've written a lot of SW materials, I thought of telling how I got into the game after trying several other ones, including trying to create my own rpg rules. If you're very critical about the system you want to use, this post may be an eye-opener.

Review: Beasts & Barbarians for Savage Worlds

Brief review for the hasty: Beasts & Barbarians is a sword & sorcery setting that has a feel of familiarity - perhaps because many civilizations have been inspired by historical civilizations. Carefully spiced up with originality, combined with classic sword & sorcery elements and tied together with a believable history this setting make a very tasty stew.

My players can take out anything! Frustration of a 4E GM

The worst invincible opponent ever

Ptolus players, this post will contain spoilers!

In my last night's game, pc's reached the end of Goth Gulgamel, a fortress half-way up the 3000ft spire shadowing the city. They arrived to the Ageless titan, a dormant undead titan. Fooled by the Rakshasa, they told the titan they want the key to the darkness. Infuriated by some arrogant and foolish adventurers stopping to shop, he attacked.
