My boyfriend has been looking for a while to find a D20 to match the rest of his dice. You can see a picture of the matchy ones and the offending, not-quite-matchy 20 here
. When we first got the set he just picked them all out of a little jar on the store counter. When he asked about getting a matching 20, the lady working there said Chessex wasn't making them any more. We've of course done some looking around on the 'net, but without even knowing the name of the style, it's been tough. Thanks!

I just picked up a rare d5 and d7 to augment my rpg dice collection. I want to use them, but for more than just table-top rpgs. Are there any dice games that are played with more than just d6 dice?

RPG filter: Where can I hook up with RPG gamers (that is to say the proper sort: pencils and paper and dice and too much Mountain Dew) in Toronto? I'm looking for AD&D preferably, Rifts as a distant second choice.

I came across my old Space: 1889
books in my parents' basement over the holidays and took them back with me to the US. I'm considering starting a campaign in that universe, but set during the War of 1914-18. Considering the different history and technology how do progress the setting into a Great War like scenario that's both true to the Space: 1889 universe as well as the real First World War?

I feel like I missed out by never playing any of the non-online Ultima games. How do I play them now? I have a PS2, a PowerBook G4, and a ThinkPad. Will I be able to play them somehow? Is an emulator the only way?

My friend mentioned a free table-top RPG that was available as a pdf on the web. All the players were gods, and with a point system, would create a fantasy world together. There would be a series of turns, symbolizing epochs or ages of the world. I don't know the name or the authors. Anyone hear of it?

Here's a long shot. In the late 90s I played on a telnet MUD in Seattle with a lot of high school friends. I've spent the last, oh, five years passively looking for it. If you have any clue or your name is Chris Rolph, help me out! [more inside]

After 5 years of her refusing, I have finally convinced my wife to try playing a Pen and Paper RPG.
But. She claims she has no imagination.
Is this going to be a horrible experience, or is there hope?

Pen and Paper role playing geekout question.
I am going to be GM'ing a Shadowrun campaign this weekend and I am still working on getting everything together. I have a premise.. I have made some pretty nice maps up.. Working on some NPCs and such. But I am stuck on writing room descriptions. How do you flesh out your campaigns?
