I’m playing Diplomacy again. For the last two years or so I have mostly focused on GMing and I haven’t had a real need to play the game. It just doesn’t fit my personality, I think… Well, now I’m playing again. I’ve been running games of Necromancer, which is a Diplomacy variant set in the worlds of J.R.R. Tolkien.
After few games there rose a need for some balancing actions. The various powers of the game are not balanced enough. We discussed a bit and agreed upon some changes and now were are testing them. As one of the players wasn’t interested to play but was able to GM, we changed roles. I’m playing Saruman and the game is called Olorin. Website includes the rule changes, maps and results.
