  1. My thoughts was that you could actually have the Mythos be both universal and multiversal. Some versions of Cthulhu could be advanced space aliens, akin to those seen in Star Trek, Babylon 5, Halo etc. In the same way I would make the lords of the higher worlds being of pure energy, but split into various factions, one being order, another chaos, and another the void. Within this there are various different beings, some of which could be called Elder gods, Eternals (Doctor Who), hell you could even have something akin to the Endless from Dc comics if you wanted. My plan was to make the more god-like Great Old Ones similar to those seen in Doctor Who, massive, universe sized that will extrude part of their bulk into other universes. But for outer gods I would also use the description Lovecraft wrote; "They are entities of a timeless nature. Genderless, timeless and some say formless. Residing outside of time and space that last amorphous blight of nethermost confusion which blasphemes and bubbles at the centre of all infinity, beyond time amidst where the absurdly the gigantic beings dwell." It would also let me use this image for Azathoth Each dot being a universe, and he resides at the centre of the multiverse, being a force of pure chaos, or renewal. His opposite being Yog-Sothoth which is pure Order.
  2. Interestingly when Elric draws runes they seem to flow into other dimensions beyond sight, so it all smacks of eldritch magic. I agree, and on the cosmology side that would make perfect sense really. Oddly, from looking at the Great Ones, Karakal and Karatal seem identical to me. Plus we have animal gods (not the ones from Egyptian mythology) but deities that are the animal in all its forms. To me, and this may be controversial, I would relegate Yig to being Lord of Reptiles or something like that (I know one in mentioned) but there is no reason there could not be both? As such Yig would also be a Great One. Thoughts, feedback?
  3. Has anyone tried to put the two together? How did you manage it? Howe did you work out the deities and the cosmology?

    New & old stuff, usually Drivethru although I am sure it is may out there...somewhere.
  5. Coolio, still slowly digesting Revolution but slow going due to work and exercise are killing me.(in that order). It is good know tthis is included though.
  6. If you wanted to add extra bits to it you could adopt Gumshoe's skill improvement system where once you reach (8?) in a skill you can pick a set of special abilities. This would allow you to incorporate arete from BRP Advanced Magic. So for evel x% after 75% you can pick a particular arete ability, e.g. Oliver Queen shooting three arrows at once.

    Firstly Heroquest is just period for a narrative game, so just switch it to Diceless. Secondly, Torg Eternity, is not great. There is some good stuff for it, but the original game was better. But it is a good addition to an old game, and it even has Torg Paratime which is essentially a massive alt. version what if a particular event happened (modeled after someone else's game).
  8. Ah gotcha thanks for clrification.
  9. That is one of those situations where common sense should take over though. Anyone with a ranged attack should attack first if outside of 21 feet.
  10. I did find Ninja Crusade in French on D-thru. I presume this is the same item?
  11. Thanks that is great. Only because I know what some of the players are like, and what kind of things they will ask for. I will digest this in detail shortly.
  12. I have only just purchased from Drivethru (had about a month) but work been hectic so no chance to read until this weekend. Are the rules on stunts and stuff really easy to understand so that others without the rules can understand? It will be a PbP game, so I need to be able yo use simple explanations, and tables to get the stuff across. Wanting to do an Elric type RPG so figured an engine that can simulate higher powers useful.
  13. Are there simple rules for creating something like Iron Man armour as an example? Or for creating science fiction armour that is highly resistant to damage?
  14. Is this still available on Drivethru as i cannot see it, anywhere. Unless I am missing something?
