Ennie Awards 2012

GameStop, Inc.

Some of You may noticed, that Ancient Scroll is among websites submitted to 2012 Ennie Awards. Some of may say: the guy is crazy! (In fact, I am a little bit ;) ) Some people may ask: why?

Well… Many times I said and will repeat: Ancient Scroll webiste was born because of love. Love for RPG. RPG industry is dominated by English publishers, websites, blogs, podcasts etc. And this is OK. Really, guys, it is OK. Even for me RPGs were a motivation to learn English when I was teen.

English language opens door to RPG: whether You are a GM, Player, Blogger or Publisher. But it is extremly important to remember that there are other players around the globe, for whom English is not a native langauge. Please, never forget that RPG is played all around the world.

RPGs were created by English speaking people, but incarante an ancient tradition of storytelling. Storytellers can be found in every culture: from East to West, from North to South. We are humble heirs of those people who were telling stories before even writing was invented. 

Please, if You are reading this post, close Your eyes for a minute. Let Your mind travel back thousands of years to the dark cave where first storyteller was weaving his tale. We owe him a tribute. Without this storyteller, we would not exist.

Keep on telling stories. [And sorry for my English ;) ]

    Today I would like to share some of my thoughts about killing in role-playing games. It’s a significant part of nearly every campaign and adventure of course… PCs are usually forced to resolve some problems with a blade (or well-placed fireball) because most villains show no mercy. Some sort of killing blow is likely in the…

    Jedną z trudniejszych kwestii, moim zdaniem, która wciąż  jest dyskutowana - to rola kobiet w RPG. Chodzi głównie o rolę kobiet-graczy. Dlaczego? Bo w przypadku NPCów sytuacja jest dość prosta. Większość mistrzów gry tworzy bowiem kobiecych (zresztą jak i męskich) bohaterów niezależnych zgodnie z potrzebami scenariusza czy kampanii. Ocieramy się więc o banał, który -…

    Slowly, a group of characters moves through the darkness of a dungeon. Blackness surrounds the PCs, someone stumbles, and the mage whispers “Let there be light.” Two seconds later a bright blue light bursts from his magic wand… Have you seen this before in your own games? I know it very well. And every time the…

    W trakcie wymyślania przygód, nie mogę obejść się bez muzyki. Inspiruje mnie - czy to jako tło do konkretnych scen, czy też jako źródło "gotowych scen" (tak szczególnie dzieje się przy teledyskach). Poniżej wpis dość nietypowy. Mój subiektywny przegląd TOP 10 najbardziej inspirujących utworów na sesje RPG. Wybór dość różnorodny, ale to dlatego, że starałem…
