  1. What I’ve learned after GM'ing Renaissance for a couple of sessions: Starting characters are effective in their chosen field. Far more so than, say, WFRP or low level D&D. In play they resemble seasoned veterans capable of able meeting mundane challenges head on. That’s not to say they’re infallible: poor dice rolls, the desire to shepherd Hero Points against future calamity and inherently lethal combat all lend the game a nice edge. The skill system is robust, flexible and covers most situations with single or opposed rolls. The Common/ Advanced divide is nice, allowing for specia
  2. Thanks! It's great having a diverse group as it encourages me to pay closer attention to what I'm saying and how I say it. Props to yourself and our other international friend for getting stuck in and playing your characters to the hilt.
  3. Session 2: The 'C' Word Dramatis Personae: Irwin Bailey: A watchman hailing from Warwickshire. Impeccably polite; allows Hugenots first dibs when shooting and stabbing outlaws. Point man for dark cellar holes. Faction: Clubmen. Saul Goodman: A Yorkshire soldier recently returned from the wars in Europe. Player was absent so spent most of the session as Thomas’s gracious patient and meat shield. Faction: Puritan. Thomas Norton: A Paracelsan physician from Norfolk. Enjoys surgery under fire and tactical furniture arrangement with his good mate Saul. Faction: Puritan. Chevalie
  4. Thanks. All credit to the players -- they made some good 'uns.
  5. Looking forward to it. Mud, blood and mayhem awaits!
  6. Session 1: Two Puritans and a Catholic walk into a bar… Dramatis Personae: Irwin Bailey: A watchman hailing from Warwickshire. As a fine and upstanding man of the people, Irwin is not averse to gunfire and stabbing people through the lungs when circumstances demand. Faction: Clubmen. Saul Goodman: A Yorkshire soldier recently returned from the wars in Europe. Renowned for his marksmanship. Suffered fire and plague in his youth, possibly as a result of bad dice rolls. Faction: Puritan. Thomas Norton: A Paracelsan physician from Norfolk. Enjoys beer, bad singing and dying of expo
  7. Luddite, here: how do I translate the sheets into google docs?
  8. That would be brilliant! We're playing online via G+ hangouts so it'd really help if the players could post and amend their sheets between sessions.
  9. Has anyone made such a thing for Renaissance/C&C?
  10. Hi all, I'm starting a thread to share stuff from my new campaign which starts Sunday. I don't have time for full session reports so expect periodic anecdotes regarding the dramatic/funny/insane stuff that happens -- and what I've learned as a first-time Renaissance GM running it. Clockwork & Cthulhu is our core text, with some players using Renaissance deluxe. I've heavily downplayed alchemy & clockwork (both exist, but are the province of lone practitioners who'd be summarily executed if discovered) and am emphasising the horror angle with Clockwork & Cthulhu and Lamenta
