    Now roll for 1d6 SAN loss for seeing my actual picture....
  1. The Weird Science sub-chapter can be used for cyberpunk in addition to steampunk. The rules are not specifically tailored to implants and nanotech, though. Red Moon Rising will include some rules for Steampunk prosthetics, and that will be another good example.
  2. The threshold is in fact in use, but irrelevant. Whenever the guards go to zero SR or lower (or below the threshold), Fantasy Grounds subtracts one from their LP. But since no one remained in the fight after receiving a major wound, LP were never used. If running such a combat on tabletop, you would have skipped counting LP until someone got wounded. As for free actions, each secondary weapon for which you have a trait or stunt gives you a free action. Works like in Legend, nothing more.
  3. Wow! ENworld has published a review of Revolution D100: Read more: http://www.enworld.org/forum/content.php?4039-A-D100-Revolution-With-Revolution-D100#.WPhZDaLRbIV#ixzz4elnHHz2s It is a honest and unbiased review, definitely spot on. Many thanks to the author.
  4. http://www.strebecklaw.com/court-rules-favor-cloned-tabletop-game-no-protection-us-copyright-law/ And just to be clear: I am in no way endorsing game plagiarism like it happened for "Bang!". It is just that a court ruling (precedent) now exists. And it is in favour of "no copyright for rules".
  5. I will release the alpha as soon as we run the next playtest. Or you might help us playtest, every Sunday evening from 21:00 to 24:00.
  6. This video features an example of advanced combat that might take place while playing Merrie England: Robyn Hode: http://www.rpgmeeting.org/en/component/content/article/12-news/51-rd100-advanced-combat-video It also showcases the Fantasy Grounds module. Enjoy.
  7. We have printed on "heavy duty" glossy paper, as the graphics chosen dictated. At least it is durable.
  8. This is more mathematics (subtraction, and potentially two-digit subtraction, instead of comparison) in order to obtain a similar result. This is the standard rule in the BGB.
  9. PS: Charles has posted on RPG.net what will happen to Nameless Streets. You can check it there.
  10. I have to add that, well, you know, "It is not dead what can eternal lie" and so on. I would not be surprised to see NS reappear in some other format. But this is absolutely up to Charles. I also have to add that according to the HeroQuest Gateway Agreement that both the publisher and the author subscribed, all variant rules for HeroQuest become the property of Moon Design, which has the right to re-publish them or integrate them in the core rules, as they see fit. This means that the HeroQuest line managers at Moon or Chaosium can legally repackage them (but not the setting) in whatever form they see fit: web page, free supplement, outrageously-priced human-skin-bound special edition etc. etc. It is just a matter of whether they are interested in doing so. They need no further permission.
  11. Nope, sorry. We do not have a print-it-yourself option for the cards (yet), so electronic supporters do not get the cards.
  12. Yes, there is. It is called "the basic rules" If you check the rules on page 106 and 107, you will see that there are several cases in which you may aim at a specific location, or define a specific location as having suffered a wound, even when you use non-localised damage as the default. The rules allow you to use hit locations as much as you like. You may even use non-localised for mooks and localised for major characters, the game will still work smoothly. There are two or three different ways of using "Aimed Blow" when using non-localised damage, emulating the "search for the weak spot" without having to keep track of location damage. There are two important points that may not be immediately evident from the rules as written and did not fit in the sidebars for reasons of space: 1. RD100 does NOT use the classic approach of BRP where you either have mandatory locations (as in RQ and Mythras) or you have major wounds (as in OpenQuest or Stormbringer). The suggested approach is much more similar to the one used in GURPS, which, in my opinion, with all due respect for good ol' Steve Perrin and his intuition that using a locational damage system feels more realistic, works better. This means that locations are a "tag" applied to the wounds, not a separate entity you have to keep track. Even in the published stat blocks, the detail about the locations is there more to describe armour, not Toughness: toughness is always -1 for legs/head, -2 for arms. 2. Although stats are organised to look like "nothing has changed" to avoid cultural shocks, Revolution D100 actually does not use hit points. There is no "pool" of points that you consume because of attrition, but a threshold beyond which you are actually wounded. Below the threshold, no book-keeping: just lose temporary Strike Rank for the pain, but nothing else. Once you are wounded, you mark the wound, not the hit points you have left: you may even have a 0-point wound. All figures are similar enough that you can easily swap the stat blocks between RD100 and other BRP-based games, but the system works very differently.
  13. ...and before you ask: no, this has NOTHING to do with that other Red Moon.
  14. The Red Moon waxes on the dunes of Imara and wanes on the steel belly of Ashul. Where will the path of adventure lead you? Inaugurating a series of cross-media products based on Alephtar Games' new Revolution D100 game system, this supplement brings the world of the Red Moon Rising web comic, created by the talented Scottish artist Rose Loughran, to your gaming table. Get ready to take the role of ruthless soldiers, daring airship captains, powerful battle mages or brave insurgents in a world of steampunk adventure and human feelings. Will you fight for Imara, for Ashul or simply for your survival?
  15. Yes, the RPG Meeting version is the latest one. Or just print out page 19 of the PDf and you are fine. In any case, here is a download link to the character sheet: Revolution D100 Character Sheet
