  1. I don't know if this is taboo in the BRP subforum, but you could take a look at Mythras (subforum further down the main page). Combine that with the Classic Fantasy supplement and you've got yourself D&D100.
  2. I'm not affiliated with this in any way, I just discovered the game not long ago. The game itself, Mothership, is BRP-adjacent being a d100, roll-under system. You can get the base game off of DriveThru for free (PWYW). This Kickstarter has been wildly successful, currently with 4 days left and funding at almost $34,000 from an initial goal of $500. Figured I'd post it here just as an FYI. Pound of Flesh Kickstarter Publisher Home Page
  3. I agree with this. A few years back I was in a conversation on a certain fantasy author's web site, and we all got to comparing themes and noticed how the traditional Sword & Sorcery genre (as in Howard and Leiber, not really Vance or Moorcock), Cyberpunk, Noir, and even Westerns all shared themes of alienation and "the outsider". It made a lot of sense to me as I like those genres about equally, and more than any others.
  4. Yes, this is a great idea. Looks like an ideal way to introduce a group to the system.
  5. I didn't realize that was yours. My KS feed was inundated with zines today and I backed a couple already. I'll add yours to the list.
  6. I prefer human-centric settings myself, but I can definitely get down with giants. In fact, my favorite race from modern D&D are the Goliaths. My least favorite (in any fantasy setting) is probably Halflings or any other Hobbit analogue.
  7. I've bought many books (more than I care to think about, really) from DTRPG over the past years and they do a good job. They've all been of good quality. In fact, I can't think of a single one I've had an issue with. I wish I could say the same for books I've bought from Lulu.
  8. I'm pretty excited for this. The "Finding Your Way" section sounds like a good idea.
  9. I prefer my sci-fi this way. Unless the campaign really focuses on the ship itself, like Firefly, then I'd much rather have space travel be a thing that happens rather than a thing the characters do.
  10. This looks fantastic. From the original piece you showed, I assumed the aliens would be Lovecraft inspired (which would fit well in the 1920s anyway).
  11. I backed it as well, though I still don't care for Fate all that much. And I find the palette a little bit pastel for my grimdark liking. That said, I enjoyed the novel that came out last year and I do love a good far future fantasy setting.
  12. I'd like to see something set in the world of Gemmel's Drenai saga. It'd be kind of hard to pick a timeframe to settle on though. Waylander was far and away my favorite character, so I'd prefer that era, which is of course before even Druss.
  13. "This massive standalone tome will be based on the Fate Core engine" I've been anxiously awaiting this game for several years. Now I'm somewhat disappointed. I'm really not a fan of Fate, but I'll hold out to see what modifications have been made. She mentions in the G+ group that even the basic dice mechanic is different.
  14. Interesting bit of trivia: the short-lived Dune RPG was worked on by Youtube celebrity Matt Colville. He has a link to some rough, unpublished material from the d20 version they were working on in an old blog post of his: http://squaremans.com/the-dune-rpg/
  15. Interestingly, Ulisses Spiele (or rather their North America subsidiary) currently has the license for both of those (40k and Fading Suns) and is working on new versions of both. 40k is set to release in the next couple of months. FS looks a bit further off, but they've actually been working on it longer.
  16. I think there is a dearth of Old West games (American Old West). Now, there are plenty of "Weird West" games. Pinnacle pretty much has that market cornered with Deadlands, and even Chaosium has some "Weird West" supplements for BRP (and CoC I think as well). But as far as just straight "Westerns" goes, the market is pretty sparse. Now, maybe people just don't want them and that's why they don't exist, but I personally have fond memories of old Boot Hill games from my youth.
  17. Highlander 2 was so memorably bad that to this day, any time I hear about a sequel, be it "Ghostbusters 2" or "Spiderman 2" or whatever, I mentally add "The Quickening" to the end of it.
  18. Isn't that Mythic Britain, from The Design Mechanism?
  19. The last I'd heard was that Modiphius was going to publish it, but it's been "in the works" for a couple years now already (as indicated on this page). I know she just published another game via Modiphius (Capharnaum) and of course they also publish Mindjammer.
  20. If this setting has the same attention to detail that Harlem Unbound has, I'm already sold.
  21. I wish I could remember offhand. I know it was talked about some in the recent novel set in Future Earth: The Worm Within.
  22. And it just got put up on Bundle of Holding. https://bundleofholding.com/presents/DeltaGreen2
  23. It's a bit pricey. 30 USD, and that's marked down. https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/225230/Delta-Green-Handlers-Guide
