  • RPG Biography
    Grognard since the mid-eighties. Started with Star Frontiers, FASA Trek and playing bards when it was a multiclass nightmare. Began d100 with Pendragon, Stormbringer and CoC. Just got Force and Destiny so now i have entered all 3 SW rpgs. Palladium (Robotech) and WFRP were cool when I was a kid. I prefer grittier to historical fantasy but it ultimately comes down to the group you game with.

  1. I was playing in a campaign years ago where at some point we had been captured by Mi-Go and were basically on the table getting experimented on but we played for a few hours of real world and many hours (days?) of game time in a Mi-Go simulation, conducting our investigation, interviewing people, the whole thing. Then I got this idea roll... The players could be running simulations in different formats in some sort of alien virtual environment. If you really want to bend minds, have then find themselves in one of the final simulations, lying in stasis, but that THAT is the simulation that they "escape" from and then can't ever be sure if they're real, androids or clones or just continuing on in an endless simulation. And you don't have to tell them shit. They're meant to be in the dark, that's the point. It's like telling them the ending of Lost before they start the show.
  2. I would also simply like to know what you want to put together. What’s your setting?
  3. You might consider OpenQuest? There are many children in the BRP family and some are more open to sharing and expansion than others. Maybe you could explain what you want to accomplish?
  4. Hey guys, Am I missing out on some of the other fora or communities where Renaissance gets talked about? I’m on the discord for Chaosium and Mythras as KozmasSchmierfink_UK at the moment.
  5. Hah! I love Ministerio del Tiempo! I may also have been struggling with inappropriate feelings for Aura Garrida but so it goes...
  6. Sorry 😐 I revisited the reviews and I must’ve blended that initial small font comment with some other reviews of something else. I already have the English PDFs for Mythras, Mythic Britain, MB Companion and Logres. Just getting tired of PDFs I guess.
  7. I read some unhappiness on DTRPG with the print on demand versions of the Mythras core rule book. Are there other options? I’m thinking of getting physical copies, but if I am going to spend the money on an object vs a pdf... Also what about print runs for the German editions? Are they using the same printer the DTRPG customers complained about? Is there a difference between the print quality from the US, UK or Europe printers? I have an APO so my options are a bit flexible without crazy shipping cost differences.
  8. Well obviously it’s a soloquest, you leave home at age 18! That’s what the loan is for! That or enlisting 😂
  9. My interpretation of Glorantha is that it’s all a simulation possibly run by dragons (or beings so advanced -like computer programmers- that the little progs in the machine can only understand them as dragons) and the Godlearner secret is that it’s all a game and they learned the code behind the Matrix.
  10. So looking at the DTRPG listing for RQ:G it says you get bonus pdfs that have A character background worksheet and a family holdings sheet. What are these things? Are they tied to tables in the core book? Can one get this without it?
  11. You should definitely read 1491! https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/1491:_New_Revelations_of_the_Americas_Before_Columbus
  12. Hey guys, is there something out there other than Pendragon that gives players/gms a way to measure how wealthy they are in herds and the like? Sort of like Lordly Domains or Harn Manor for the Bronze Age?
  13. Heh, that makes me the weirdo again. It was RQ Viking’s and Fantasy Europe that drug me in 🧐
  14. Yeah I never played Elfquest but I bought it for a girlfriend in High School after I binge-read her ElfQuest collection. She bought me Stormbringer from the same game shop in Wausau .. I still have that book on my shelf. Guess which one my friends and I played? They didn't have Melnibonean bone bows in ElfQuest! But still. We made characters for fun, which was enjoyable and I have regretted it's status out of print because 10 years ago it would have been a great gateway game for middle-school aged daughters and nieces. Now there are plenty other options.
  15. These both sound great! We’ll see what I get up to this week. I might have something Mitannian or Urartian come through.
