  1. How do you create NPC's

    I'm not sure where I saw it first, but some GMs routinely go for 75% of the PC's abilities. So, for a combat encounter, they simply assign three fourths of the PC's Combat Style to the opponents. That way the resistance will always be in the right ballpark.

    [Double post]
  3. M-SPACE actual play on Twitch [Swedish]

    I agree, subtitles would have been nice. I'm not sure anyone is up to hardcoding it though.
  4. M-SPACE actual play on Twitch [Swedish]

    Yes, it will be pretty cool I think. It's a talented bunch that's playing.
  5. Swedish YouTubers RPG Monday will play M-SPACE live tomorrow on Twitch! It will be in Swedish only, so if you haven't started practicing yet, you only have about a day to learn the language of ABBA, Ingmar Bergman and IKEA. As a bonus, you will be able to understand what the Swedish Chef actually talks about in the Muppetshow.* RPG Monday will take on the REFLUX scenario, and I will be present in the chatt to answer any questions from viewers. Link: https://www.twitch.tv/rollspelsmandag Time: 6.15 PM (CET) on January 15 You can also view a recording later on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGZG7rLj3r6P5gqrODGk9_w *Or maybe not, come to think of it.
  6. Super Power Questions

    You can also check how Elder Godlike approaches superpowers: https://www.rpg.net/reviews/archive/16/16918.phtml I haven't tried it yet, but I've heard good things about it.
  7. Book of Quests is Drivethrurpg’s deal of the day.

    That's nice.
  8. The Silver Key (proposed campaign)

    Sounds intriguing. Fascinating to be able to tie it to real world locations/persons/relatives. Looking forward to hearing more.
  9. Advice For Ranged Combat In Mythras

    I watched it a couple of weeks ago and it's a quite chilling view of the near future. There's a reason many scientists are calling for a ban on autonomous weapons.
  10. New Releases for Christmas 2017

    That painting captures the feeling I was looking for. It didn't show up much in the Valerian movie, but the comics are full of fantasy-tech worlds - very far from Tolkien. Steampunk Byzantium sounds terrific! I will see if I can make room for a sci-fi Constantinople in my own games.
  11. New Releases for Christmas 2017

    Hmm, I wonder if Mythic Constantinople can be easily repurposed as a 'Valerian & Laureline' type of sci-fi-fantasy city? @dragoner what do you think?
  12. Advice For Ranged Combat In Mythras

    For near-future settings, light and smoke grenades are good choices as already stated. They will give everyone a chance of repositioning without becoming targets. More deadly solutions would be grenades and autonomous drones. Just keep in mind that drones might be possible to hijack by the target, turning them against the original attacker. For high-tech games, various forms of protection will make players less hesitant to move around. The battle dress is an obvious choice, but perhaps let it cover only the head, chest and abdomen to make it less powerful. Personal energy shields can also be fun if they have some setbacks (limited operating time or slow-moving weapons not stopped like in Dune for example). Or perhaps a 'shield grenade', offering a powerful shield for only a few moments?
  13. Mythic Constantinople Sneak Preview

    Can't wait to get this.
  14. Best sci-fi of 2017

    Yeah, it's always a bit strange when none of the titles in a 'best of' list sounds familiar. Too many books, too little time I guess. All Systems Red looks interesting. The comment 'best depressed droid since Marvin' got me hooked.
  15. Best sci-fi of 2017

    The Guardian has published a list of their favourite sci-fi books of 2017: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/nov/30/the-best-science-fiction-and-fantasy-of-2017 My own choice from the past year has even made it onto the list: Amatka by Karin Tidbeck. Very well deserved and highly recommended if you have missed the debut of this rising star (no pun intended). Did any of you read the other titles mentioned in the article? Any recommendations?
