The history of this hobby is really interesting to me.Channel: Matthew Colville Topics: Lifestyle Related videosPitching Your Campaign, Running the Game #51Your First Adventure, Running the Game #1Campaign Diary 002: Soldier Take WarningRecommended videos 178K Matthew Co The Map Is Not The Territory 164K Matthew Co Dice Math, Running the Game #48 62K Matthew Co Using Hexographer to Build a World 305K Matthew Co The Goblin Gambit, Campaign Diary 01 143K Matthew Co The Dungeon 155K Matthew Co Verbs!

Fantastic stuff.Old Guy Gaming 1 years agoVery interesting seeing so many games from outside my typical choice of RPGs. I wish I had collected such things back when they came out. Thanks so much for the quick run through. One thing though, I will never understand peoples' obsession with color art. I've always actually preferred b&w art; color always seems to lose something for me. Beyond that, if the publisher threw a ton of money at the color art, that means that they had less money available for other aspects of the game. Therefore, I always had in the back of my mind that the game must not be very good because all of the development money went into the artwork and the rest of the game must have been under funded.Holly 1 years agowhat i always wanted to play was the rpg to Perry Rhodan, but the problem is that i am basicly 40 years back in the books right now and need to keep up reading to get to the spot where the rpg is playing xDHolly 1 years ago88 for german means nothing nice lets say it this way ....Dave Webb 2 years agoThanks for sharing all your epic work! Extremely impressive stuff.Raymond Lukes 2 years agoanyone else notice the crazy acoustics when Matt taps the Dune book? https://youtu.be/PVIcKuxG4gY?t=1208Frank Serio 2 years agoThis was delightful. I played a lot of those games back in the day. I really enjoyed listening to your stream-of-consciousness descriptions of them. Thanks for sharing. I am a little late to the party of your channel. One of the new players in my D&D game introduced me to your videos. It's been a great experience working through the backlog. Looking forward to reading your book when it's done and all the stuff you will be posting here. Thanks for all of this. You have given me a lot of great ideas for the Storm King's Thunder game I am running!Rylan Joran 2 years agoThere's a book on my shelf with the title "The Andorians: Among the clans", for the Star Trek Roleplaying game. Guess who is credited for Art Direction.Navid Zaman 2 years agoGuys, what will this new office be doing?Philip Oikonomou 2 years agoHello everyone! i have fallen behind with Colvile and never got the announcement of the studio !!! what are you guys aiming for??!!gnawer 2 years agoAhh Aberrant, I absolutely love the flavor and story of the game, but like most White Wolf games, the rules were rough and far from my favorite. Also liked the layout of the books. The first third or so of the book was flavor and backstory done in "news blurbs" style, then came the character creation followed by the rules. Alway's wanted to take the story and flavor of the system and use a different set of mechanics for it. Perhaps Fate or Wild Talents.James Chambers 2 years agoI hope you find or have the cards for the Marvel game, it was great!Richard Sands 2 years agoI loved Yaquinto's album games, we particularly loved Demon's Run back in school, though when I got it out and tried it ten or so years ago, it seemed as though the rules were broken, and I couldn't remember whether we house ruled, or if we just missed the big flaw! Asteroid Pirates was fun. If I remember correctly, Swashbuckler and Adventurer were the same game, bar room brawl swordfights, one skinned with Errol Flynn, the other with Han Solo... Those were the ones I owned as a kid, I played a couple of the others, but don't remember which ones.Norrin Shearer 2 years agoI love these 90's RPG history lessons, I find it so interesting!Jared Hayter 2 years agoIs that an Omega TC-2?K Dolo 2 years agoThat Vampire the Masquerade is 2eRerTV 2 years agoIt was really fun just seeing you and Jim getting so hyped up talking about older systems :)Atlus Libre 2 years ago23:00 Rommel used the 88s to great effect.

Steven Crompton was the artist who seems to have been the driving force behind the project--his trap diagrams really drove the entire line of books.otherchannel 2 years agoPlay/Stream Fading Suns!Meradudd Cethin 2 years agoGrimtooth's Traps is from Flying Buffalo (the folk who did Tunnels and Trolls), starting in 1981.Amaya Ells 2 years agoI loved the sound of the world concept for Earthdawn... definitely tempting to do something with that idea.Tom T 2 years agoRemember the Grimtooth’s Traps from the mid 80s.

You could run a short series on traditional dnd baddies as it were.Edward Brumbaugh 2 years agoIm pretty sure a lot of people would be interested to watch you and Jim sit and nerd out over some of those games in a little more depth (if he would be down) you guys have an INSANE amount of knowledge about so many different games it's really fun to watch.Bobby Brankiewicz 2 years agoThat Shadowrun art is AMAZING!David De Lille 2 years agoWhere is Office 01?Theophrastus Bombastus 2 years agoInstead of "Office 04" this should be called "My Books 01" lolJoseph Craig 2 years agoThe V:tM core there is 2nd edition. 1st Edition was a softcover.Michael Roach 2 years agoI played Aberrant. We had fun with the campaign and I think they made a really cool setting. But the system was pretty clunky in some regards. Pretty typical for White Wolf games from my understanding.Ja Ha 2 years agoEarthdawn is the best game I never got to play. I could just never get a group together. Just a perfect setting.Chris Siddall 2 years agoTangental: If anything Brave New World reminded me of the 'New Statesmen' written by John Smith with art by Sean Phillips, Duncan Fregedo and Jim Baikie in Fleetways 'Crisis' comic during the v late 80's early 90's.
