A Visit to San Sibilia – Actual Play & Review

I Was Excited But…

Before I start, this is a sponsored post. The creator of the game, Peter Eijk contacted me asking if I would be interested in covering the game and after taking a quick look I enthusiastically said, “Yes!” as I tend to enjoy this kind of game. I don’t let the fact the game was given to me for this review get in the way of actual critique, but be sure to keep it in mind regardless.

What immediately stood out to me with A Visit to San Sibilia, henceforth just referred to as San Sibilia, was its artistic style. The game truly looks great, and since Peter’s goal is to get funding for a physical copy, at the very least I can confidently say this will look absolutely stunning on any gaming shelf or otherwise. Though the game is only a mere 14 pages, each of the pages that include art (most of them), do a great job of invoking a sense of the setting. So let’s take a journey together as we visit San Sibilia! Continue reading “A Visit to San Sibilia – Actual Play & Review”

The Gentleman Bandit – Short Story & Solo RPG Review

Recently I Entered a Writing Competition

While I didn’t win “Fusion Fight“, I did enter it and wanted to share my experience with you regarding that contest. For it we were all tasked with writing a short story that blended two genres together in 500 words or less. So naturally I decided to do something a bit wacky and took a solo role-playing game to tell my tale. In Allision Arth’s game, The Gentleman Bandit, you play as the titular character and write a poem to leave behind at the scene of your latest crime. So let’s dive in and take a look at both the game, and the story it helped me to generate. Continue reading “The Gentleman Bandit – Short Story & Solo RPG Review”

The Plant – A Solo Role-Playing Experience

The Plant

Intro:  The Plant is a solo role-playing experience that I have adapted into a short story for your enjoyment. I did this run completely blind with no knowledge of what could occur or any of the game’s contents, so be sure to keep that in mind while reading. Also, no edits (outside of minor spelling, grammar, and tense changes) were made to what I wrote down. This will also act as a review/endorsement of the system, as well as other Bully Pulpit Games. Personally, I highly recommend Fiasco if you have a few friends around, it is a great game! That cost some money, but they have several free games, including this one (an award winner, by the way), on their website. As for what The Plant is, the story setup is this:

Your daughter is in the plant. You are going to find her. Continue reading “The Plant – A Solo Role-Playing Experience”
