  2. Enchantment Ritual

    My campaign is run from mostly DnD 1E converted modules, so I've created a system that would account for the majority of the items found within those modules, but with a BRP twist and plenty of room for customization. Note that I use Magic World Sorcery rules alongside Classic Fantasy rules in my fantasy campaign that has a slight steampunk-ish twist.

    This file replaces the Ritual (Enchantment) skill used in my own Rel'Pek campaign, which is an INT - based skill (bonus of half INT) and is one of those skills that has no base score.

    As is usual, your feedback is welcome,

  5. Fantasy BRP Treasure Generator

    What's that dragon guarding?
    This is a treasure generator for use with BRP fantasy settings, like Magic World.
    The generator will prompt you for a treasure type, which BRP critters don't have listed in their details/descriptions, so I advise using a third party "manual of monsters" to cross reference the treasure type there for individual creatures. I personally like AD&D recommended treasure types.
    You will also need the small,FREE NBOS program "Inspiration Pad" to use this table which can be found here:
    http://www.nbos.com/products/ipad/ipad.htm
    (I know it says Ipad but there's a windows and even android link.)
     
    PLACE THE "BRP_Fantasy_treasure.DOC" file in the C:\Users\Documents\Inspiration Pad Pro\Generators DIRECTORY AND RENAME IT TO "BRP_Fantasy_treasure.ipt"
     
    This table will allow the Chronicler to generate treasure types A-Z, as well as individual items such as Magic Weapons, Miscellaneous Items, Rings, Wands, Staves, Rods, Armor and Armor Pieces, Shields, Cursed Items, Mundane Items, Jewelry, Gems, Potions, Scrolls, and Spell Books (using Classic Fantasy and Magic World spells) as well as the suggested value in Bronze Pieces for each item.
     
    I placed ALL this information in one table so as to keep it as simple as possible.
    Can't say the tables are easy to edit if you're not familiar with NBOS, however, after a little tinkering it's pretty easy to add new items or descriptions to any category. I've run through hundreds of tests with each category and it all seems to work well but if you ARE familiar with NBOS please don't grief me too hard on the table set up. I know it's not very clean.

  7. Feats and Aretes for Magic World

    Basic Roleplaying Magic World Feats and Aretes
    Feats are special bonus abilities gained by mastering skills. Starting at 75% and again at 100% the character gains a new feat for that skill every 50 points above 100%.
    If using the Arete system from Advanced Sorcery, ignore the skill prerequisites listed under each feat, use that skill score system and count these feats as effects, to be gained every 50 (or 25) points above 100 in each skill.

    Most of this material, including pictures and illustrations, are borrowed from other sources, from people much more talented than myself. All I did was convert it to be compatible with BRP/Magic World as best I could while trying to maintain a balance/fun ratio. Hope you enjoy it!

  9. The Mentalist

    This is an attempt to combine a little of 1st and 2nd edition D&D Psionics and convert it to be compatible with BRP / Magic World.
    The great article Deep Magic from Advanced Sorcery got me thinking about a new way to incorporate psychic powers into my campaign. The Mentalist is the result.
    All of the descriptions within, while edited and converted, are from various other writers possessing more talent than I.
    All of the images belong to artists of many sources, all FAR more artistic than myself, from other books and the internet. They are not free stock or open license.

  11. Wild Magic

    'Bringing back an old favorite of mine. All I did was look up the on-line SRD from an older iteration of that-other-rpg, made some tweaks and adjusted the language to fit the BRP magic spells system. I then added a sentence to make it Enlightened Magic friendly.

    Let me know your thoughts and observations.

    Thank you,

    John

  14. adnd_2nd_to_brp.pdf

    AD&D (2nd Edition) and Stormbringer (3rd Edition) were the first games I ever actively wrote campaigns for ran and as GM while at college. The crossover rules presented here attempt to bring some of these (quite fond) memories together. It's a bit like Chaosium's own Classic Fantasy monologue but not as good :-) .

  17. URUK

    This is a 100 pages amateur BRP-setting I wrote about ancient Mesopotamia (3rd Millenium). It used to be available for download on another BRP-webside, which has now been stopped, so I moved it here. It is far from being perfect, but you can find ideas, material and inspiration -or use it as it is if you like. It is unfortunately written in French.
     
    Upon request, I can upload a printer-friendly version on a white background.

  18. Domicile To Domain

    This is  a quick and dirty kingdom management guide. I used the Civilization computer game as inspiration for a lot of this.
    It isn't as complex as some books I post but it fits the needs for my own campaign. Maybe you'll find a use as well.
    This guide helps PCs to start their own kingdom and, without micro-managing, gives the basics to building, expanding, and running anything from a hamlet to an empire. There are references for terrain types, features of terrain types, and possible resources available.  Once a community is established, there are guides to building improvements ranging from Farms to Colosseum. From City Walls to Castles.
    Manage the amount of Food, Commerce, and Production a community generates and grow to greatness or fall to ruin.
    Included is a basic system for mass combat when/if you build armies. Starting with the Green inexperienced footmen, to Veteran Horsemen, to Elite Calvary. Special unit upgrades including Ballista Units, Catapult Crews, Battering Ram expendables.
    This is in no way exhaustive so feel free to add/modify/delete whatever you like.

  24. Classic Fantasy Iconic Characters

    Some have requested to see my groups characters as they were at the beginning of the "Against the Giants" adaptation that I'm currently running. Here they are. These are the same characters found through out the Classic Fantasy books in the various examples and have been around for a looong time. They started out as D&D characters twelve or so years ago, then got converted to BRP using RQ and Stormbringer. Then when getting involved in the BRP playtest they were updated again to the Big Golden Book and finally used extensively to playtest Classic Fantasy.

    As of right now, they are current and 100% Classic Fantasy. They are NOT beginning characters by any stretch of the imagination. Like every long time group, they have a pretty amazing back story, and I try to use it extensively when writing the examples.

    Included are...

    Alexandra, cleric of Apollo
    Sir Drake, paladin of Nimue (the Lady of the Lake)
    Lilly Tanglefoot, halfling thief
    Rengarth of Black Tower, human magic-user
    Sorack Blackwolf, elf ranger
    Lorissa of Stormholm, half-elf barbarian and devout follower of Sif

    Also included is Lorissa's sheet when she rages (watch out)

    Then only thing not included is the magic-users owl familiar named Rassiter,
    and the clerics "pet" psudeo-dragon, snaggletooth
