  • RPG Biography
    Played DnD in late 70s, then Traveller, Universe. Life took away from gaming for a few decades. Returned to RQ6 and a voracious exploration of what's happened since 80s.
  • Current games
    Pathfinder, prepping for some RQ6.

    I am that I am.
  1. BRP *is* D100. -Edit- OK. Knee-jerk post on my part. I guess by 'D100' Archivist meant Revolution D100.
  2. Modiphious has its own house system, now: 2D20. I would not be surprised to see Chronicles published using it.
  3. Confidence men/women.
  4. "...dropping a decently sized city into a star system every four years..." Calls James Blish's "Cities in Flight" series to mind. Old Earth cities (e.g., Scranton, PA, New York, NY, etc.) leave Earth and travel between the stars at sublight speeds via Spindizzy propulsion, anagathic drugs extending the lives of the citizens of the cities. They visit star systems and perform contract labor for which the cities are specialized (e.g., mining, smelting, manufacturing, etc.).
  5. It is a shame that this game seems to have disappeared into the aether.
  6. I am looking forward to seeing what you will have wrought.
  7. x
  8. Word.
  9. I'm glad there are still signs of life. I look forward to seeing the fruits of your labor.
  10. You must have an old RQ6 pdf, sir. My pdf of RQ6 2nd Ed is 38.2 MB. Mythras interactive pdf is 37.4 MB. In contrast, my Mindjammer pdf is 203.8 MB. So, there's some perspective. I'm looking forward to looking at the printed book!
  11. I just bought the pdf from DTRPG. So, I gather no break/credit towards the physical book when it is released. Bummer.
  12. I want TDM to maintain their current focus and not seek such IP-hooked projects unless they happen upon one that really trips their collective triggers. They have carved a nice niche out and I think nurturing it will serve them best. And, I cant think of an IP that would make sense to me. Dune pops to mind, but then I imagine what a herculean project that would be (if it could (or should) be done). No. Eschew such entanglements for the time being. Yes. Wait. I am so slow. Black Sails. Put forth a setting for Starz' Black Sails series. That would rock.
  13. It would appear not.
  14. That's what I find, too. I'd not realized there were no illustrations. Of course, I only recently obtained the '81 edition. I've had the '77 edition. I understand this the current state of RPG books requires lots of art. I've come to hold the opinion that one should forgo art if one can't get GOOD EVOCATIVE MOOD GENERATING art like that which was achieved in the Astonishing Swordsmen and Sorcerers of Hyperborea rules. I like that the '81 books don't have illustrations.
