  1. So I can fin this in Teshos ( Picture Kang Mi Na from KDrama Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter)http://www.koreandrama.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Mama-Fairy-and-the-Woodcutter-Poster8.jpghttp://www.koreandrama.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/Mama-Fairy-and-the-Woodcutter-Poster8.jpg
  2. Looking forward to the finished project. But a couple of questions While I know Kralori is not China or any other Asian country but Shape changer are common in Asian folktales so are we going to see any Fox Women( And Fox Men) or maybe some different types of Hsuchen like Magpies , Butterflies, Tigers etc? I seen the Dragon Carp,any chance for a Dragon Snake? Like a White and Green one?
  3. Getting killed in Comics and other Super powered media is rare. But in Superworld its fairly easy for a villain or hero to end up dead , even when no one is trying to kill anyone. So here is a rule change im presently experimenting with in the current game Im running to prevent death being common . when some one reach zero hit points they are now dying( but not dead yet) and unconscious . Death does not occur till they reach their CON in negative hit points . When dying they must make a CON or POWER roll x5 minus how many hit points below zero they are or they lose another hit point . If they crit their roll they stabilize and no longer need to roll to not lose hit points . If they fumble they lose 2 hit points . If they have purchased luck they can of course add it to their roll. Example MightyMan is hit hard and is now at -3 hitpoints . He has a Con of 15 and 12 power so he choose to roll on his CON . His 15 con minus the 3 hitpoints he is negative give a 12 x5 or a 60 percent chance of not losing a hit point .
  4. I do own agony and ecstasy . But unless I missed something nothing on using Mysticism
  5. I played Superworld and like the system. And am going to be starting a new campaign as soon as lockdown is lifted here. And it does not break down but the main problem is that in Superworld hero's are not as powerful as in other systems. 4 thugs with assault rifles can be a threat to 4 hero's Also powers are not balanced . Mental powers can be extremely powerful as Most people will have zero defense . If you want to play the Green Arrow , or Blade or Netflix Defenders , Superworld is great. If you want to play the Avengers , look for a different game.
  6. What to people think of the Idea of running a Classic Runequest Sorcerer as a Mastermind Villain in a Superworld game? I feel one would be versatile in what he/she could do, but would not be very combat oriented ( Thats what minions are for) But Im not going to even try to point out the cost though.
  7. I really like the rules on Mysticism . And I also like Superhero role playing. Has anyone have idea on how to use Mysticism in a SuperWorld type game to represent a Martial artist in a reasonable way?

    Mythra Wushu

    I have always liked the Mysticism in Mythras and am also a big fan of Chinese Wushu dramas which I think Mysticism would be a good fit for.. Has any ever thought of doing a Wushu adventure or supplementfor Mythras ?
  9. Have my copy of Lors of the middle sea in the garage some place. All I can say is Im looking foreward to raiding a sunken library or action on one of the floating cities.
  10. Thanks for the reply. Might point out Nine tailed fox are not a creature of fear in China as a physical threat.. But are some times feared as a threat to the sanctity of the family. In China even today to call a woman a white fox or a nine tailed fox is to say she is an adulteress or a Mistress.
  11. Shape shifting animals are very common is Asian folklore and perhaps the most common are Foxes Japan has its Kitsune while in China its the Huli Jiang and in Korea its the Guhmiho . While the difference between the Kitusune and Huli Jiang is mostly Cultural as the Kitsune is often depicted as a loner and mischievous seducer or a loyal wife while the Hul Jiang often belong to families and clans and family honor is important to many , The "good" Huli Jiang often falls in love with the hero and sacrifice her life for him while the evil one tries to eat the hero. The Huli Jiang is often a very competent sorcerer and a good martial artist As others have put out Figures for the Kitsune and Foxwoman I will not do so .. There are male Kitsune and Huli Jiang and the main difference seems to be the male spend more time at sword practice. A Hul Jiang clan leader with with 90+ swords skill backed up by what ever magic system your game uses might not be some one you want to be mad at you. Just tell him your intention towards his little sister are pure and you will marry her as soon as time permits. NOw for the Guhmiho( Or Kumiho) Now Like many creatures of Folklore there are many folktale and many do not agree with others on habits power level etc. I am going to basing the Guhmiho on the following Korean shows . First is "Grudge, the Fox Child" , .Next is "Nine tailed fox:Forbidden Love" and last is "My girlfriend is a nine tailed fox" T he first thing is that unlike the Kitsune or Huli Jiang , The Guhmiho tends to be hostile to humans . They will slay a lone human caught trespassing on their territory with out any hesitation . To a powerful group or in a place where its dangerous to strike they will try to hide their nature and wait for an opportunity to strike a lone person. They are said to eat human liver , some saying they need to eat a human liver to survive( Some tales say once a month, other say once a century) , other say they just like the taste.They are also notorious grave robbers which where they often get their livers from the recently dead . Strangely they are devoted to their family. If a human marries a Gumiho they are safe from their depredations and will be a devoted spouse. And they are devoted and loving parents to their children even if the child is half human . Woe to the person who hurts their child as they will go to the ends of the earth for vengeance . But the person who rescue or save their child they will also remember and future encounters will be friendly and the Gumiho might even help as long as her/his identity will not be exposed. Human/Hybrid form haractteristics average STR 3d6+8. 18-19 CON 2d6+6(12) 13(16-17) SIZ 2d6+6 13 INT 2d6+6 13 POW 2D6+3 10 DEX 2d6+6 13 CHA 2d6+8 15 Fox form STR 2d6+6 13 CON 2d6+6(12) 13(16-17) SIZ 1d4+1 3-4 INT 2D6+6 13 Pow 2d6+3 10 DEX 4d6+6 20 Cha 2d6+8 15 MAGIC Gumihos are not known to cast spells of any type. whether its because no one will teach them or they are incapable is not known .But they have some innate magical abilities.The first and most important is their Fox pill . The Gumiho keep their fox spill in their stomach but can retrieve it in one round if need be and loan it to some one if they like ..The first thing a fox pill does does is it adds+6 to the con of who ever possess it.( Note the +6(+12) on the Gumiho Con is with/ without Fox pill) T he second is it allows the person who has it to heal one point of damage each hour . There is no way known to force a Gumiho to give up their fox pill involuntary . They have to agree to it and will only do so for desperate situations Like a Mother giving her Fox pill to her badly injured half human daughter( Who was not mature enough to have her own pill) to save her lifeAnother magic ability for Gumihos is they are a great source for magical ingredients.. If you bah your skin in Gumiho blood it takes years off your appearance. A Gumiho leg bone can be used to make a magic want and if you add the Gumiho tail as a tassel to a magic wand it increase its power . And a Gumiho liver is a wonder medicine able to cure many ailments. Gumiho know this and perhaps one reason Gumiho are hostile to human is they are not fond of being hunted for magical ingredients Skills. A Gumiho skill choices are similar to a human .. In Joseon Korea weapons where strictly controlled so chances of a Gumiho ever touching a sword or spear are low . But they are able to form claws that do 1d6 plus damage bonus and learn martial arts. in other society they may vry Dodge 80% Martial arts 60% , claw 65% spot 80% listen 80% hide 75% Knowledge skill herbs 70%
  12. I would probably used Forbidden Love for my Gumiho if I wrote one up as there more information there.. There its mention that Gumiho are twice as strong as comparable human . And Female lead can leap on top of a Church and balance herself on top of a streetlight as she waits for a target to come out of a building. I dont remember any advance sense of smell spoken of( But I would not rule it out). but they can see in the dark like a cat. Here a fan made Music video that includes some fight scenes . Note the Human police officers is a CHOSEN ONE by the fates( For lack of a better term) so he tougher and luckier then a normal human and later gets a magic sword Note also the Female fox warrior and the Police officer where best of friends when they where 11 , even sharing the same birthday, only to be torn apart by fate to meet again at age 25 on opposite sides..That the 2 kids in the video https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=guhmiho+ana I have been thinking of doing a Gumiho for BRP , Although the power of course varies by writer and source of myth.. But most source seem to say they are stronger then a human ,able to rip a liver out barehanded. But they seldom are mention as using magic of any sort. Maybe I should go rez the Monster thread that used to be in main forum. The Chinese Nine tailed fox( Huli Jiang) are not mention as physically powerful ( I would use foxwoman or kitsunes for them) but are morally all over the map the " Good ones " being very concerned about family honor and the teaching of Buddha and Confucius and the evil ones wanting to eat you.
  13. Well if you meet a pretty female Gumiho , just ask her if she plays with her food😃 . Besides when I was single I met many a female that where into eating mens hearts so these ones eat livers instead of hearts.
  14. And Finally Nine tailed fox: Forbidden love: Korean Asian sure love their foxs. Here the Gumiho( Korean for nine Tailed fox) have a secret society in modern Korea , Ruled by the council of Elders. Guhmihos are twice as strong, much faster and heal much quicker then humans.To top it off a handful (5 to be exact) are taken at age 12 and subject to intense training to become the Fox Warriors, the Guardians of the Fox race. Problem is Gumihos need to eat a portion of Human liver each full moon . Which comes into the first conflict . The Council of Elders has prohibit killing of humans for their liver and harvest livers from people who die in accidents and of natural causes ( Think Vampire who robs the blood bank) There a rebel faction who think eating livers of people who died is disgusting and is hunting and killing humans for their livers, which keeps the Fox Warriors busy hunting the Rebels. Some members of the council are also trying to break the curse that require foxes to eat liver or at least be able to clone livers . There also a Special Korean Police task force thats out hunting the Foxes ..The forbidden Love is the fact one of the Fox Warrior( Played by Kim Tae Hee, one Of South Korea most popular actress)) and one of the Police officers hunting the Foxes ( played by Jo Hyun Jae, another popular actor ) fall in love.
  15. Following two need a little longer explanation . Hansen and the Beast: ( Chinese) Another Fox( This time played by Yifei Liu ,Disney Mulan) falls in love with a Zoo keeper in Modern Shanghai . Problem is the Shape shifter government (yaolings)prohibits interspecie romance of any kind and has the B.O.T (Bureau of Transformer) to enforce its laws. Human are not to even know shape shifter exist. Here the movie on Youtube.
  16. I dont know if I should of added this to Favorite TV superheros or not but I have become a big fan of Asian Dramas and movies now you can stream shows all over the world and many have idea for a Super powered game. Strong Woman Bong Soong:(Korean) A shy young Lady who has super strength given to her by a magic book as long as she uses it for Good The Item :(Korean) A wealthy Sociopath and a Prosecutor battle over 10 items that give people special abilities . There a bracelet that gives super strength , a camera that takes pictures of the future a kids toy that turns into a energy whip Bring it on ghost (Korean) A college student can see and physically effect ghost and runs an exorcist service( Love the scene where he runs into the body builder ghost and has to run) He runs into the ghost of a high school student who wants to know who she is and why she died . My Girlfriend is a Nine Tailed Fox . A want to be Actor release a Nine Tailed fox who been imprisoned for 400 years . One of the most popular Korean dramas. Life of the White Fox( Chinese) Here the Fox is a male who been cultivating in a cave for a thousand years when a young college student falls into his caves and she accidentally absorbs his fox bead and thousand years of cultivation . Nice superhero style battle at the end.
  17. If you want to use Superworld to run something totally different. , I recently watched a series of Chinese Movies called Trek of the Mutants. Yes mutants in Ancient fantasy China. But I think Superworld would be a good fit if you want to run a Chinese Wushu style game . I mean what other system beside a Superhero one will let you run White Snake and Green snake?
  18. IM addicted to Korean Dramas and many have a Fantasy /Science Fiction angle There Strong Girl Bong Soong. More traditional super hero.Super Strong Woman as long as she uses her powers for Good. Powers come from a magic book given to her ancestor . I could provide more examples if other are interested.
  19. Miho Gu from " My Girlfriend is a nine tailed Fox " OK not your standard Superhero but She stronger and faster then a Human and Shin Mih Ah fox"
  20. I agree a party mix needs to make sense or you will have half the party killing the other half, even if they are all human. A party consisting of a Lunar, an Orlanthi, a Malkioni, and a Waha worshipping shaman would only work if they where heading to wipe out a Thanatar complex and would turn on each other when they where done. Argan Argar worshipping Humans and Trolls easily group together . A Wind child and a group of Orlanthi would be OK. Duke Raus has Newtlings on his payroll and they can fight alongside other Zola Fel worshippers with no problem. Biturian Varosh hired Baboons to guard his caravan . I have no problem with players playing a non human if they can explain why. But if they want to play an Agimori because they have great stats the answer is NO
  21. Also the traditional Japanese Samurai was also an Archer first on the battle field ,not a swordsman. A Japanese Samurai would fill the sky with arrows then engage in sword play after the enemy was weaken. And a shield is more of a hindrance then help to an archer.
  22. Two thing about Broo and Broo rape First Chalana Arroy has worshippers among the Broo, The Wild Healer of the Rockwood and a few in Doraster. Some Orlanthi will state its not really Chalana Arroy that is worshipped by the Broo in Doraster but no one say that about the Wild Healer. Now about Broo rape and Broo larva. Years ago while in Thailand I was told the told that local fishermen thought of themselves as good Buddhist . And they did not kill the fish they just let them come onto their boat and if they died that was the will of the Gods and it would be a shame to waste the meat of the fish . A similar attitude could be with cure chaos wound cast on some one pregnant with a broo larva. The spell could expel the broo larva unharmed from the host . And if the larva is unable to survive outside its host body well that bad for it. Might mention I don't see most Gods in Glorantha being rules lawyer when it come to the behavior of their followers( Well Solar deities maybe)
