  1. So as you may or may not know, I'm attempting to map & populate the Southern Reaches town of Tindale. Thought it might be fun if I gave others the opportunity to help populate it. Got a colorful, loveable, spiteful, evil, religious, corky, grim NPC you'd like to share? Maybe a neat idea for a craft shop, inn, tavern, smith, vendor, shrine, temple, or merchant? Also wouldn't mind seeing ideas for urban adventures Post it here and I'll find a place for it! 😎
  2. My first question would be when did the apocalypse occur? After more modern times? Will there be machines?
  3. Cant wait to see the end product! Post apocalypse
  4. I'm still working on the Southern Reaches town of Tindale. It'll be a sandbox style town with hundreds of detailed NPCs, many of which have hooks for side trek adventures. I've finished most of the Docks District (along the White River) and am working on the Theatre District currently. This isn't (so far) meant to be a full blown adventure but a base of operations for the adventures I make in the future, and maybe a stopping point for other chroniclers adventures who happen to need a city along the way to their next conquest πŸ˜€
  5. I'm curious if you think the deities are accurately depicted, as far as statistics and skills anyway
  6. I personally have always liked the allegiance idea but felt it was lacking in some ways, making it less important in the short term of the game. Some of the professions I've written include allegiance as a central factor to gaining special benefits besides Apotheosis. As example there are some feats (in my feats book) that only become available if one is higher than the other rest. Such as a druids ability to shape change might be granted if Balance is a certain % above the others. Adds a little bonus to staying along the perceived morality of the character IMO. No real penalty for NOT playing within the characters personal code or ethics.
  7. Nice! A product all twelve of us can enjoy πŸ˜€ I'd be happy to add some underwhelming projects to it. Maybe we could call it The Chroniclers Companion. *ugh still too soonπŸ˜–*
  8. Gotta go where the profit is. Understand that. God knows I did some work promoting both MW & BRP. Wish I had discovered the wonderful material sooner. I'm an avid Roleplayer with hundreds of books several systems and never picked up a book from either of these two games. How many players are just like I was? I'm betting a lot. When I pushed MW in my group, my local game stores, even on line in PBP games, no one was familiar. I know I hooked a few people on the system but...
  9. Ordered a back up copy of both MW and AS 😎
  10. You might try the Classic Fantasy supplement. It converts a lot of the old school D&D spells to be compatible with BRP https://www.drivethrurpg.com/m/product/82084
  11. Some good materials I'd recommend are The Magic Book https://www.chaosium.com/the-magic-book/ And Advanced Sorcery https://www.chaosium.com/advanced-sorcery/
  12. This kinda has me thinking about the Dark Crystal for some reason.... What if, like in the movie, you could sacrifice others....drain their spirit (POW). Siphon that energy to fuel the POW costs of the undead? That would give you the needed corpses and the needed POW yet still require time and sacrifice. How long before the local villagers suspect their missing loved ones were taken to the black tower and raise torches & pitchforks? Maybe you could supplement the cost of POW by requiring an equivalent value in gems or some such. Say 100% more coin per skeleton than a hireling might cost.
  13. I'm honestly not too familiar with Celtic tradition druids so I'll have to do some home work. My idea was indeed the shape shifting druid, with abilities based on allegiance to balance. A lot of the abilities in my Feats book were based on Allegiance Scores, which I really liked. Gave Allegiance a little more meaningful impact on the game besides more POW or earning a plot of land at certain levels of %. Am interested in what others think would be a good addition tho
  14. OK. I think I posted this elsewhere, but all of my current campaign and A LOT of the custom work I was doing for it was tied around my rendition of The Southern Reaches town of Tindale. I had created a fully 3d map of the town using Neverwinter Nights 2 toolset but I lost a tablet and the work with it. Gone. No dropbox copies, no copies in file section here, nothing on external hard drives...nothing. I'm not even sure how that's possible but...well... here we are. I've been working to redraw the town as re-creating the entire town based on my previous maps and screen shots would have never made a proper duplicate so..... I'm redrawing the whole damn thing. This is gonna take quite awhile. What it will mean is that other works I've published that included Tindale will no longer be accurate depictions of THIS new material. On the good side, the more I play with the toolset, the better I get so the new Tindale will hopefully be much better. I've pretty much tapped out on adding new resource to the Magic World system via mechanics so I'm probably going to be increasing my "Side-Treks" or little mini-adventures. (Some of which are in the files section here.) That being said, if there is a mechanic someone would like to see, I wouldn't mind some inspiration. Been toying with the idea of making a Druid Handbook ever since I did Religions in the Southern Reaches. I may play with that as well.
  15. Wow dude. You just made my week, Warlock! For those that don't know this guy is da man
  16. MORE CREATURES???????!!!!! I was actually looking through my fan-made MW books last night and found a Necronomicon of sorts, I made for one of my players wanting to play a necromancer type. 40+ pages of all the more vile spells from most of the other BRP-style books and some custom stuff. I almost put it in the downloads section until I remembered it had so many published (copyright) spells in it Not sure what my next project might be. I may redo Tindale since I lost it but man is that gonna be a pain. I'd like to map out all the tagged towns in the Southern Reaches and make a giant Essentials guide but WOW what a project
  17. I had a buddy who started CF back in the day (yes 2 years ago) I wonder what he thinks of the new transition. (Feel free to message me) YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE
  18. Thanks g33k! i can't imagine porting MW over to another genre.... I think BGB and Cthulhu handles this wonderfully by itself. (And honestly BGB handles just about EVERYTHING wonderfully as is. IMO) I dunno. Maybe I'll just move my game and attention to BGB... I still love MW but... if I'm not helping one I'm just hurting the other and that is NOT my intention. I've ALWAYS been about increasing Chaosium sales/attention, even when I don't think they are (No offense to staff) Gotta follow the $. I get it but it still hurts so bad, like Firefly getting cancelled ((WELL SORTA)) ) I am Curious if Chaosium has reached out to Lone Wolf at all for their character generator. I havent seen any action since Cthulhu way back when... If you're not growing, you're dying.
  19. Yeah, rendition isn't the proper word more than...replacements? I don't know. I remember Classic Fantasy was getting revamped. Glorantha (sp). Rune Quest was redone? There was rumors of some older system getting redone, was it the Melbourn stuff? I don't remember... Guess my question is did MW people make the move to a "supported" system or is MW still the shizzile? I've been trying to think today what new MW project I might work on but I think I've tapped out additional resources for the game. Maybe make modules...?
  20. Been awhile since I've really been active in this community. With the fall of my beloved Magic World I became disheartened and packed my bags for other adventures. For the last year or so (two years maybe?) I've been playing the new improved D&D 5th edition, which is SO much better than some previous editions IMO, but I still feel the same things nagging me. Level creep, early and weak end caps, ect... some things never change. It's good to see some familiar faces are still active here. Some who have years if not decades of experience with the system. You know who you are I've been toying with the idea of putting my energies back into BRP MW and maybe some of you good people can help me with a short cut. What's everyone's opinions on the newer renditions of the system? Maybe some of you veterans can save me A LOT of catching up in the forums.
  21. As always, play your game how you want. I WAS going to reply I don't like ticks based on INT but the more I think about it the more sense it makes. I wracked my brain trying to think of a functional character who was a great fighter but dumb as a rock. I came up with Groo the Wanderer πŸ˜€ but you could easily say he placed all his earned tics in fighting skills and lacked in anything else which would explain his full intellect. We have some real d100 geniuses here. Maybe someone else will have a better opinion.
