My RPG Profile

This has been going around the last few days, and it's been so long since I've posted that I decided I should participate. The template is here (You'll get an "adult content" warning, but this particular page is safe.)

I'm currently running (at home): The Castle of the Mad Archmage megadungeon under OSRIC.

Tabletop RPGs I'm currently playing (at home): Well, it's at another guy's house, but he's running a 1e Mystara campaign.

It's kind of funny that most of my current gaming activity is old school games, when I generally consider myself more of an indie kind of guy. In fact, I initially started my own campaign as an experiment in seeing how old school gaming works in actual practice. The fact that this experiment has outlasted any other campaign I've run is kind of staggering.

I would especially like to play/run: I'll probably wind up running it, whatever it is. Especially if it's not D&D related. Burning Wheel, FATE, World of Darkness (probably with Vampires this time), the Last Unicorn Star Trek RPG

...but would also try: Nearly anything else on my shelf. And it's a big shelf.

I live in: Northern California

2 or 3 well-known RPG products other people made that I like: It's always hard to tell what's well-known and what isn't in RPGs. I love every GURPS book Ken Hite has written (Infinite Worlds, Alternate Earths 1 and 2, and the latest version of Horror). Castle Falkenstein has flavor out the wazoo. Promethean: The Created from White Wolf really touched a nerve with me.

2 or 3 novels I like: The Oz series by L. Frank Baum, The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, and Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels. It's also amusing to point out that I own the RPG for each of these series.

2 or 3 movies I like: I like Return to Oz, Rise of the Guardians and Pacific Rim.

Best place to find me on-line: you can read my main blog here and Tumblr from time to time. I also have a blog for another project/idea here.

I will read almost anything on tabletop RPGs if it's: Well written. The biggest mistake I think people make when writing about the hobby is assuming that it's all D&D. While D&D is the elephant in the room of the gaming hobby, it's not the only thing.

I really do not want to hear about: Power builds and munchkinning.
Free RPG Content I made for Adventures in Oz: Fantasy Roleplaying Beyond the Yellow Brick Road is available here. On my blog, I statted up a bunch of  characters from the Oz books and some other media and magic items.

Free RPG Content I made for PDQ is available here (link). Avatar: The Last Airbender was a really cool show, and I've seen a lot of people trying to hack various game systems to the purpose. Since the bending powers were so flexible, I thought PDQ was a good fit since you could just write "Airbending*" on your character sheet and be done with it. So I wrote up the main characters of the show using those rules.

You can buy RPG stuff I made about Oz here:, DriveThruRPG,,, RPGNow. A few other places too.

If you know anything about Oz it'd help me with a project I'm working on. Either Adventures in Oz: Beyond the Deadly Desert or writing an adventure.

I talk about RPGs on Facebook under the name F Douglas Wall. I also have a fanpage there for Adventures in Oz here.

I talk about RPGs on Google+ under the name +F. Douglas Wall.

I talk about RPGs on under the name knarf.
