  1. Huh, I missed that, assuming it was 1D4 from habit.
  2. As I recall (and I've not read the rules in decades) a PC could buy down the damage Quality to survive otherwise fatal attacks. A plot immunity mechanism that worked well for a James Bond RPG. Some RPGs ask, "How good/powerful is the weapon?" and others ask, "How good are you WITH using the weapon?". A typical D100 system asks BOTH those questions in reverse order with a hit roll, then damage roll. I'm not so sure they should be quite so separate.
  3. I've ran a couple Superworld campaigns and had a decent amount of fun with them. I'm also one of those that says the system breaks down with the more powerful tiers of super heroes. Granted, most super hero games can struggle to deal with the most power Avenger types -it's just that Superworld will show the cracks sooner than a game system designed from the the ground up to deal with supers. Still, a good system for a street level campaign and a couple notches above that in power level. I'm not really familiar with Questworlds, so I'll have to look at how that does things.
  4. It's the years of playing super hero RPGs, but I LOVE having space on a character sheet for character art. I also like what you've done with the landscape orientation. Having options for character sheets is a plus for any RPG.
  5. Jon Hodgson art will always be linked to OQ in my mind, like Jeff Dee and V&V. Looking forward to seeing the end product.
  6. Okay, thanks to both of you for the response.
  7. Hey Newt, any idea when you'll have an OpenQuest SRD for the 3rd edition available?
  8. Great cover, the kind that makes you feel like there is a story there just based on body language and facial expressions. Also, agree that the title needs a size increase.
  9. Tracking Power cost was always a bit of a pain in Superworld, but it was also a cap on a powerful hero not being able to use maximum power every time. The idea of powers being boosted sounds interesting and my obsession with collecting super hero RPGs will probably not be broken with the release of Mythras Supers. 😄
  10. Still no real sign of Far West, so you're still in the lead.
  11. That cover is amazing. Blotting out the sun with arrows, but they'll fight in the shade. 😁
  12. I created a Known Space/Ringworld adventure for RadCon 2020 but didn't get any players for it. The thing about adventuring on Ringworld is the insane size. Giving the players the options to go anywhere on it seemed too daunting to me, so I was always reluctant to run it. Honestly, the crashed ship onto Ringworld is really a nice way to limit how far they can go and see. You could prep a number of different scenarios and use them no matter where they PCs go (visiting the other great ocean for example) but they always have an easy exit with advanced vehicles. Here's a Ringworld character sheet I created from the River of Heaven OpenQuest RPG sheet. One of the more simplified versions of a BRP-type system. http://www.mediafire.com/file/7420fdvpd70vpx8/Ringworld_BRP_Character_Sheet_v2.pdf/file
  13. The mostly blank M Space character sheet, without hit locations. Almost all the % spaces are not fillable right now -they change so much anyway, but I wanted to get something out. http://www.mediafire.com/file/idd321o9m3cg7mq/M_Space_blank_Sheet.pdf/file
  14. Yeah, I can laugh now that it's over. Took a trip to the ER and some sweet, sweet pain shots though. I'll be working on that character sheet tomorrow, that's the plan anyway.
  15. Sorry, I've gotten sidetracked by a kidney stone passing. Still in the works.
  16. I ran a time travel/dimension sliding campaign using BRP and it was great at jumping around to different time/places and levels of tech. A few tweaks to the rules can help find the right flavor for a setting, like using a heroic option for hit points in a Flash Gordon setting, but being more gritty with The Expanse setting. BTW, I have not forgotten about the blank fillable character sheet, I just got swamped over the weekend. I'll get it done and post a link by this Friday.
  17. Yeah, just turning the title into a editable text box. A must really, for a generic sheet.
  18. It will probably be sometime this weekend that I'll be able to turn out a fillable version of this 'blank' CS.
  19. Let me know if you want these made into fillable PDFs. This would allow the Skill list to be edited as needed for each setting, but having to write each skill in by hand would be a nightmare to me.
  20. The above links for the character sheets are updated with a corrected 'Ride' skill. LOL, oh man I need to stop with the multi-tasking! I swear I read you asking for Bureau 13 sheets! Okay, time to add some new links: Fringeworthy APC art: http://www.mediafire.com/file/zkv2qnvbeqts5em/Fringeworthy_BRP_Character_Sheet2_-_FillableAPC.pdf/file Fringeworthy Hazard Suit art: http://www.mediafire.com/file/8n94v25k2eaer45/Fringeworthy_BRP_Character_Sheet2b_-_FillableHazardSuit.pdf/file
  21. After Richard Tucholka passed back in 2017 I decided to run Fringeworthy for Free RPG Day that year. I was going to use the 1992 edition, but I'd forgotten how complex some of the rules could be. I switched over to using Supers! Revised instead, as creating pregens was much faster and easier. Later, I decided I wanted a system that was designed for normal humans, so BRP was the logical choice for me. I ran BRP Fringeworthy in 2019 and it went great. Now, NONE of the players had ever played Fringeworthy before, so it was the setting that interested them -not the game system. The game system is more about making the GM's life easier.
  22. Uh, yeah I did play around with one. Let me dig it out. There are three character sheets you can download with a bit of different art: Werewolf: http://www.mediafire.com/file/85ndrzruxm91lt8/Bureau13_MasterCS_Wereworf.pdf/file Spaceship: http://www.mediafire.com/file/o1djhu3clvoa2qt/Bureau13_MasterCS_Spaceship.pdf/file Zombies: http://www.mediafire.com/file/szti4otmtobwv1i/Bureau13_MasterCS_Zombies.pdf/file Let me know about any issues or needed corrections. 'Leap-Horse' is a remnant from the Tschai character sheet. That needs fixed. *** Fixed the above CS links ***
  23. It was on my DriveThruRPG Wish List of RPGs for quite some time. I finally bought the PDF and hardcover version (which just arrived today). The book is nice, a bit odd with the colored header and footer page sections and mostly B&W interior art (the solar system, Mars and Venus maps are full color). Odds are I'll used the setting for a time travel/dimension hopping mini-campaign at some point in the future.
