    Vorpal Games is proud to announce the official preorder for the Red Aegis RPG. If you missed the Kickstarter, this is an excellent opportunity to jump in while the water is hot (we won't be reprinting it). Secondary to this, we're tossing in some special incentives for those who support the project. I'll be raffling off a limited-edition signed hard-copy to one supporter that picks up the Digital Boxed Set (which already includes everything). ...

    Here's a great article from the 2013 World Champ for X-Wing: Paul Heaver. There's some really good insight in this article about how the metagame works, and what you should look for before any dice are rolled. This has applicability to not only tactical miniatures war-gaming, but other games as well. We sometimes get caught up in the wrong aspects of the game, and forget to step back and look from a higher altitude. Over the coming months, we'll try to get some articles up that help you look at games from different perspectives. ...

    As many of you know, I've been absent from the site for a while now. I tried many months ago to be the administrator that this site deserves, but the truth is that I just have too many things going on -- and that isn't likely to change any time soon. So, I have decided that it is time for me to step aside as the primary administrator for Pen & Paper Games.

    Fear not though! In my stead, Matt James will be taking up the mantle of leadership for P&PG. For those of you who aren't familiar with Matt already, he is an award-winning game designer from Washington, DC. His design creds include work for Privateer Press, Paizo, Kobold Press, and Wizards of the Coast. He's also the co-founder of Vorpal Games -- creators of the Red Aegis RPG, and he is the most energetic (borderline manic, really) person I have probably ever had the pleasure of meeting! It is that energy and his extensive network of contacts in the RPG industry that Matt will be bringing to the table to breathe new life into our community.

    As for myself, I'll still be around in a mostly technical role -- handling the back-end administration of P&PG's web-server and infrastructure support.

    With that, please welcome Matt James as the new administrator for Pen & Paper Games!

    Matt James is an award-winning game designer from Washington, DC. He has designed and developed game content for companies such as Privateer Press, Paizo, Kobold Press, and Wizards of the Coast. He is currently the lead developer and co-owner of Vorpal Games--creators of the Red Aegis RPG. Matt is also a disabled combat veteran, having earned the Bronze Star Medal and Purple Heart during his service in Iraq back in 2005.

    Savage Worlds is one of the most popular games played here in the P&PG Chat Rooms, and to help support the unique initiative system of Savage Worlds, each room now has its own deck of cards. You can interact with the deck by simply typing /draw to draw a card from the deck, or /shuffle to reshuffle the deck. Each deck has the standard 52 cards + 2 Jokers.

    Keep in mind that the deck is persistent. It will not be reshuffled until the shuffle command is used. If you are starting a new session, you'll want to make sure you shuffle the deck before you take initiative.
