  4. Ken's D1000 Table

    Hiya gang,
    Back in the hardscrabble days of lil' book D&D and its offshoots, I remember going through Hargrave's "Arduin Grimoire" when it first came out. Packed with mounds of great homebrewed stuff, I *really* liked the several pages of "Special Features Tables" that were included toward the front of the book.
    Ever since, I've been a fan of such tables, and have used several such over the years.
    So at some point several years back I decided that a *mere* D100 just wasn't enough, and decided to make a D1000 table. How hard could it be?
    Well, I'll tell you, trying to generate a *thousand* different features is more difficult than you might think. It was for *me* anyways...
    I eventually came to the realization that such a task was going to be kind of difficult.
    I started by worked up a list of features cadged from the old Hargrave tables, stuff taken from an accquaintence's Special Feature table I received in the early 80s, and anything out of the ordinary that may have been attributed to a particular NPC or spell, or special cult table, etc which I could find going through my RQ/CoC/DG/Elric/Stormbringer/Elfquest stuff, odd abilities encountered while reading through epics and sagas,bits taken from a set of online RQ Alchemy Rules (Simon Hibbs maybe?),as well as stuff of my own creation or inspired by stuff I'd encountered during game play.
    More than a *few* bouts of fine tuning later, and you have my D1000 Special feature Table.
    Enjoy!
    -Ken-

  7. Random Weather Generation

    Just a simple system you can use to randomly generate weather I cobbled together a day when I was bored and had little to do.
    I have used the Weather Conditions from p. 235-236 of the BRP Book and made some simple tables you can use to quickly roll up the conditions for each day. It also have some simple guidelines on how you can generate temperatures for each day.

  8. Dogs

    These are my homebrew rules for handling dogs in a normal powered game. It handles hunting, tracking, guard, and attack dogs. These rules would most likely be useful for people running normal powered games set in wilder areas where people still live with and use dogs. Imagine our heroes being chased through the swamp by baying hounds, or sneaking up on a frontier cabin with a couple of dogs in the yard – that is the type of situation where this level of detail would be needed. I have a blog entry explaining why I bothered to write these up, if anyone is interested.

  13. CoC/MW to BRP Movement

    Don't know if people recognise it at all, but MW and CoC use different Movement rates. I like to use some creatures from both of these settings in my BRP game, so I came up with this easy movement table.

  14. Corrected Hit Locations table

    The fractional hit points table on page 369 is wrong - so I knocked this up with NeoOffice, which should give the true values for all THP values between 1 and 100 for 2/5, 1/3, 1/4 and 1/5 THP.

  21. Potions v 1.0

    This is a set of simple rules for making magical potions along with a few examples. They are purely a figment of my imagination and have not been play tested. I think the basic system is sound, but details can certainly be improved on.

  23. Optional rules for campfires, dehydration, jumping, object armor,water requirements, wind effects

    Optional rules for campfires, dehydration, jumping, object armor,water requirements, wind effects.

    This is a modified version of the original document i have open office rtf , and pdf format.

    The most visible difference is the wind effects table witch has been modified to be more compatible with the BRP book.

    Feel free to modify values as you see fit, if you think my values are to low or to high alter them till it feels right. nothing is set in stone.

    This is version that i will be using in my Planet of the Apes(POTA) RPG. A work that is still in progress and will cover the classic POTA movies and tv, shows, but not the new movies. i am old school POTA fan.

    Anyways i hope this is of use.

    This is some more optional rules i am working on, I am interested in what others think, especial on the movement rules.

    Hopefully my calculations are correct on the movement rules

    Course if the new COC 7e movement rules are good we may not need mine, but i have not see the new COC 7e rules for movement .
