  • play
  • This is a game very much in the mold of the early days of the hobby, a joyous goulash, equal parts randomness and brilliance, that wasn't tailored to provide a particular kind of play experience. (blogspot.com)
  • I've never had the chance to play The Palladium Role-Playing Game in any version and I doubt I ever will. (blogspot.com)
  • certainly
  • On a purely cursory inspection, I can certainly see why the game was viewed as little more than someone's D&D house rules. (blogspot.com)
  • Designers
  • There's no question that D&D exercised a strong influence over Siembieda in creating this game, but, then, how many early RPG designers can claim not to have been influenced by it, if only negatively? (blogspot.com)
  • players
  • Where are these Palladium players who've managed to keep these games alive and well for all these years? (blogspot.com)
  • The Palladium Role-Playing Game may not be my game, but I now feel a strange kind of kinship toward it and its legions of players out there whom I've never met. (blogspot.com)
  • popular
  • It's a mystery that I know I'm not alone in pondering, a mystery all the more baffling because I know that these games are actually quite popular -- or at least what passes for popular in the post-fad age of RPGs. (blogspot.com)
  • fantasy
  • That joke seems to apply to The Palladium Role-Playing Game (now called Palladium Fantasy ) and its spin-offs, because, for many gamers, it's absolutely true. (blogspot.com)
  • I already have D&D for all my incoherent fantasy gaming needs. (blogspot.com)
  • principles
  • Re-reading the game recently I was struck less by its specific affinity with D&D and more by its connection to old school design principles more generally. (blogspot.com)
