    Nighthaunt

    Does anyone remember a Superworld scenario in Different Worlds magazine called Threat of the Nighthaunt? I'm just wondering if it was worth seeking out?

    Pacifica

    My latest game setting is a post apocalyptic mutant filled superhero game, set on a new continent called Pacifica. The creation of the continent by a geological anomaly caused huge changes to the planets weather due to large scale vulcanism and the dumping of dust and sulphur dioxide into the atmosphere. A limited nuclear war has raged due to the famines caused and attempts to annex resources to build arcologies for the remaining populace to live in. The date is 2060, and Americans fleeing the radiation in their blasted country have created a new city on the continent of Pacifica. But the new land holds secrets of its own. And why is the superhero cyborg known as Kron weaving a huge sphere of carbon nanotubes around a nuclear weapon? Is the Tech Guardian priesthood being infiltrated by some dangerous cult? And will Neo Nihon be able to defend itself against the huge reptilian monster when someone has stolen the megamecha that is their only line of defence? (Thanks to Seneschal for his sentai team write up, it came in handy). Who stole it and why? I'd answer these questions but my players would read them and it wouldn't be fun playing in my game.

    Pacifica

    A giant mecha and Godzilla, and various superheroes versus a whole gaggle of hounds of Tindalos, and their leader left several supers dead and a smashed up mecha but a nuke finished off the hounds. What's not to like? LOL My players enjoyed it but were a bit mindblown.

    Tweaking RoH

    I don't know if this has been talked about before. I think it is worth a look. https://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?746303-Tweaking-River-of-Heaven
  6. It would explain why Great Cthulhu looks like a squiddly diddly, because he's the grandpappy of all those betentacled cephalopods. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ™

    State of BRP

    Now all you need to do is proudly sponsor me to wear it at multiple roleplaying events in the UK! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    State of BRP

    It does seem to me that BRP is a bit like a religion in that it has schismed repeatedly. What we don't need is purges by fanatics bent on restoring orthodoxy. Though I like the BGB, and would like to see more supplements done for it.

    Heck if they buy me that T shirt I'll wear it. Are you reading this Chaosiumites? I take a Large SIZ. ๐Ÿ˜‰Another company made an awesome Arkham Astronomy Club "The stars are bright" T shirt that I'd love to wear too, hint hint! ๐Ÿ‘
  10. One of the buffoons that wrote that paper has been butthurt because of the amount of criticism he has faced. He wrote a hilarious letter to one of his detractors, squidmaster PZ Myers. https://freethoughtblogs.com/pharyngula/2018/05/19/i-just-had-an-idea-for-a-movie-squidnado/#more-50910

    State of BRP

    Dammit Seneschal, I don't even know where to find those Stayfree-Maxipads! I'm stuck using rugosely squamous and cyclopean R'lyeh Brand slime pads! Also, if Chaosium were to pay me, handsomely, to promote BRP I would happily walk around Nottingham dressed as the BGB! ๐Ÿคฃ

    State of BRP

    First of all I'm glad that BRP is not just in the hands of one game company any more, and would still be around in some form should, Cthulhu forbid, Chaosium disappear. Secondly, why should we be burdened with spreading BRP like it is some kind of religion? Surely we're running, or playing, it for entertainment and not because we're proselytisers. Most of us can barely get a game together what with juggling our work and family life, let alone act as spreaders of the faith beyond our usual gaming hours.

    What is is about Stormbringer?

    With such a fear of the word "socialism" you sound like one of those sociopathically selfish rightwing American libertarians that grace social media with their howling wails of horror at anything remotely co-operative. All of humanity is pretty much socialistic in that they tend to form societies. ๐Ÿ˜ LOL
  14. If you're interested in monsters for more contemporary settings such as Call of Cthulhu this could be your thing, or things...๐Ÿ‘น

    Thanks ORtrail, that looks very interesting.

    What is is about Stormbringer?

    It's fantasy (and lets face it that genre pretty much dominates roleplaying, even today) and it was fun. Nuff said.
  17. Conrad

    What is is about Stormbringer?

    I agree. I love the Elric! rules.

    Encumbrance and MOV

    There are also the rules for encumbrance, and movement from Nick Middleton's sci fi scenario Outpost 19 that could be used.

    River of Heaven Companion?

    Thinking about it a GM screen would come in handy. Uninjured with nil underhandedness, just an inquisitive intelligence that is running RoH right now, and enjoying it.

    River of Heaven Companion?

    One of my friends asked the same question on the D101 games Facebook page. Here was the answer. I hope it helps, Marcus.

    STARFARER 2250

    The setting could easily be used with threedeesix's Star Frontiers conversion. It would be fairly easy to adapt it to the Operation Ulysses, Mission to Epsilon, and Spacejack! monograph scenarios. However it would be better to buy those monographs than waste your cash on Starfarer 2250, unless you already have the Starguard! miniatures rules and want a quick rpg add on to those rules. Being tied to the quickstart rules limits severely the amount of detail for such stuff as the multivisor, and there are no psionics rules, though they are part of some creatures talents, and some equipment. Also some of the robots are all a bit samey, and could have benefited from a more varied selection, like adding the Decapillar, instead of the bland Philot Military Training Robot. They also use weapons, but most of them have no skill rating for this use. The MOM bot can conduct battlefield repairs on robots but no skill is shown. Very poor indeed. The aliens seem a bit too samey in their stats, and could have done with a more imaginative interpretation than is done here. They also would have benefited from the full BGB rules being used to quantify them. Finally the art in places is atrocious, and could have been better. What a pity that Chaosium chose to licence this without doing some quality control.

    STARFARER 2250

    What an oddly quirky setting, but with some interesting bits! The extraordinary items are obviously inspired by D&D. The Sonic Meditation Box, which allows for an increased Psi point recovery rate , and the Psychic Medallion allows for one psychic power if you don't already have one, are interesting. But psychic powers, while mentioned, are not included in the book, you'll need the BGB to use them. The Vest of Useful Items and Regeneration Bracers look interesting too. I like the many types of grenades too, but that's because my players just love to blow themselves up given half the chance. Nuclear or nerve agent? Yes they have those. There are no space combat rules. And no planetary generation rules, though there is a planetary classification table. There is perhaps too much detail on what clothing a character has. There are many old school style alien races statted, and most of them are of the humanoid animal (see the link in the post above for an overview). There are also many types of robots statted too, from warbots to cargo bots. The book also contains some short notes on using the miniatures rules from Starguard! and Starwar 2250 with the BRP rules.

    STARFARER 2250

    It is based upon the Starguard! miniatures combat game first published in 1974, so it precedes Star Wars by 3 years. So it is a pre- Star Wars space opera setting. http://tin-soldier.com/sgdp.html

    STARFARER 2250

    Lou, is there a space combat system? Are psionics part of it? I'm interested in the thing, but the preview wasn't all that informative.
