  • RPG Biography
    A long time ago I learned to read English via Robert E. Howard. A while after that I was introduced to Dungeons & Dragons 0-2nd edition. However, for reasons of opportunity and social anxiety I've never been able to play that often. What I have the most experience with is d20 D&D, which leaves me cold.

    Despite my lack of playing I have accumulated a gigantic stack of roleplaying books and an even larger stack of digital copies from RPG now, etc. The d100 games have had several settings that interest me, such as Glorantha and the Young Kingdoms (I have an Elric fetish, mmk). I own about 25 D&D/AD&D clones and variants (Wakboth bless the OSR) and an edition or two of almost every game here (Stormbringer!, Elric, Runequest 3e, MRQ I & II, Legend, OpenQuest, Age of Shadow) and enough Glorantha/Young Kingdom stuff to overload Pan Tang. I even have a boatload of Judges Guild stuff from my uncle (the guy who gave me the Conan books) and the only experience I have with playing d100 is JG SoloQuest using the Stormbringer 1e from the boxed set.

  1. Except Birthright and New 52 did retcon it. And if you think physical challenges are important for Superman, you've got the wrong genre again. Do you expect Jesus to lose in the Bible, Ramayana to lose a fight? The non literal mythic aspect is the core of it. Many superheroes are demigods x but Superman is clearly a mYthic savior figure. It's neurotic to engage in denialism that nay says what basically every student of comics and mYthology x and a basic fucking perusing of Jung, make perfectly clear. And then intentions of Siegel and Sister are irrelevant. Their 1938 character isn't even r
  2. (BRP) RuneQuest, Stormbringer and BRP seem to user roughly the same weapon and armor rules, which is weird because Stormbringer had about 3k-5k years better technology. This might be fine as realistic combat isn't exactly the goal of either, but I'd really like to make the alloys behave properly, even if they're not found together. Here are some ideas on how to think about and adjust equipment and armor to reflect that quality steel is found only in the last thousand to half thousand years or so, and that other types of alloy have very different properties. Bronze is far more frangible
  3. Mailing list jargon From the fabled age before forumz! (Well, I guess BBS is just as old as mailing lists).
  4. Superman lasted like that for less than a 2 years. golden age Superman, contrary to form propaganda, was impervious to death rays and nuclear weapons, was about as strong as most Marvel bricks today, could fly (through space on occasion). This is between his first appearance and the late-mid 40s. People always talk about first appearance Superman but he was much more powerful than people give him credit for and was basically a cosmic god before the Silver Age rules around and made him nigh omnipotent. So unless you're implying he was trying to one up human opponents and irrelevant supers like
  5. This is why I go through Amazon. One example of a small RPG company with great customer service it's Hard8 and Kenzer & Co., the people behind the new Hackmaster. The authors of the books and Kenzer himself are ready too contact on any forum catering to Hackmaster or most classic D&D websites. when I initially ordered my Garweeze Wurld Gazetteer and Atlas a couple years back I got same day responses to inquiries. I don't know Chaosium's setup but many rpg companies could learn from K&C's example (such as 'never trust Wizards of the Coast').
  6. Have you checked out Basic/ '5th edition'? I kind of want to adapt the counting system fo battle to my BRP game.
  7. A friend of mine is working on Garweeze Wurld from Hackmaster and the Greyhawk setting into BRP, combining the two of them as continents on Aldrazar, but I don't know how much he's porting Other than geography and history.
  8. I'll definitely pick this up as I want some interesting options on sorcery for my game. With my games on hiatus it might come out before I start my campaign. Will this book be aimed at expanded spells, more magic types, option switches or some combination?
  9. Earlier today I had all the Hackmaster 4e core books, Hackmaster5e PHB and RuneQuest 6e in my bookbag, it was pretty extreme. Converting over all the spells has to be half the work in itself. Hell, maybe I should use the SRD to make a Hackmaster themed RQ6 engine. That's more work than I have in me now, but maybe I'll just make houserules for Classic Fantasy to Hack things up a notch.
  10. I love AD&D and really enjoyed the BRP' Classic Fantasy. I was wondering why you chose Legend over RuneQuest 6e? The latter seems like the same game a bit more refined (though I've read them only). I prefer skill checks myself. Just feels more organic.
  11. As usual my rpg ADD has caught up with me, and my kick this week is Hackmaster. A long time owner of 4th edition and many HackSupplements I was quick to grab Hackmaster Basic. Now I have the Hackmaster Players Handbook, essentially an expanded version of Basic, and I am wondering if we have any fans of either edition or of the settings (Tellene and Aldrazar). I am a big fan of Greyhawk and Aldrazar both (probably my two favorite settings, I <3 old D&D stuff) but I really haven't had the chance to run Hackmaster. Right now our rpg group is on hiatus due to a divorce and some other st
  12. Because of what I said earlier about fights between people that should be no contest. I get annoyed by it, but the lumpenproletariate who buy the books apparently think it's 'kewl' for bad, formulaic plotting to be endlessly rehashed. And yeah, Byrne sucks. Before hating Rob Liefeld was a hobby for comic grognards, hating John Byrne was in.
  13. Thor: http://www.killermovies.com/forums/f98/t522796.html And the Hulk has moved continents. Marvel's heavy hitters have never been quite as '11' as DCs, but the Marvel strength press claims are garbage. Wonder Man, who can easily arm curl 80 tons and one arm a helicarrier is classed as 100 tons, which is laughable. Superman was ramped up pretty quickly after Crisis, too. By the late 1990s he was flying faster than light and dragging black holes. Currently, bench pressi g the Earth for five days with no sunlight extracted one drop of sweat from Superman, and he constantly gets strong
  14. I'm helping a friend with Hackmaster, and Status sounds similar to Hackmaster's Honor rating; Allegiance would also be useful for Cults and other organizations.
