    Role-playing games are GOOD for you. They are NOT the work of the devil.

  1. Most of my group really likes to have "notable" foes have stat-block sheets comparable to their own. They have no problem with mooks being tracked with utterly-simple check-boxes (drops on one normal hit, two minimum-damage hits), and Plot-Element (unassailable) NPCs having RP-only (no "mechanics") notes; but it really chafes if I'm too hand-wavey with near-peer NPCs' game-mechanics. Or else what's the point of even having/using those mechanics? That said -- no, sorry! I haven't converted any (but I may be converting in the future, and will try to recall this thread and revisit it, if/when I do).
  2. I don't find most space-opera science to be particularly hard-science; it's just got a bit more emphasis on the pretend-physics, because so many of the nerds who read it <raises own hand> wince harder at bad-science of the physics variety... so the "better" authors wave their hands more wildly to distract. But it still operates via handwavium. I toss in many of Andre Norton's stuff as space opera, too. But don't knock Perry Rhodan! Whether unit-volume, revenues, or virtually any other number, it's the "biggest" series ever...
  3. Just as an afterthought -- how about a slipcover for those bad boys?
  4. https://basicroleplaying.org/topic/6022-rqg-hints-about-releases/?do=findComment&comment=87167 Quickstart -- stripped-down rules, 1 adventure Core Rulebook & Bestiary, plus Screen Pack -- There's the Monsters book you asked for GM's Guide & Scenarios Book Heroes Book and Dragon Pass Campaign Honestly, I'm not much for "cards" as RPG supplements. Too fiddly, prone to getting lost: if you have more than a few cards, it gets faster (and IME it quickly gets notably-faster) to skim a list on 1 sheet of paper than to flip through a stack of cards; and at the end of the night, digging them out of sofa-cushions and from under the armchair is a pain! YMMV, and if others see it as a popular option I certainly won't complain if Chaosium realizes another revenue stream. Everyone'sGWV, after all, and spell-cards at other tables isn't a problem at mine! RE an "encyclopedic reference" that ISN'T the GtG ... I'd love to see such a thing, in the format of name of entry 1-line precis source citation(s) with page/book listed But in an active system (with new supplements coming out every few months) such a book will quickly become out-dated... so what about an e-Index "living document"?
  5. Just hadda pop back in and ask... am I the only one who originally hit this thread wondering if it was going to be some semi-crazed mashup of the "Fate" game mechanics with BRP???
  6. Nah. It's a YoungAdult paranormal-romance series. Generic and formulaic, but proficiently-written.
  7. that's wonderful! Haven't seen anything else like it, no...
  8. As of Feb 2017, the publisher still says it's coming... "Real Soon Now"(tm).
  9. I'd make one of those Terrible Sinners be someone who has done something ritually-proscribed but (in the modern world) trivial. Everyone else has committed horrors like murdering a parent... but ONE of them is guilty only of... oh... say, eating a mango during a solar eclipse, or playing soccer without having washed at sunrise, etc...
  10. While you've graduated to the hardcore BRP lines, it strikes me that the d100 gateway drug of Classic Fantasy should make this KS a trivial one to run using your preferred engine...
  11. Well, it's extraordinary!
  12. I haven't played 13A, but I understand it's more-different the 3.x/PF SRD's than most versions of BRP are from one another... So that would work less-well (for the 13A/d20 audiences) as a descriptive/accurate title. I do agree that "13th Age in Glorantha" set at the juncture of the 3rd/4th Ages is... ummm... incongruous.
  13. If I do it -- and I'm VERY unsure! -- I'm gonna do it as lazy as I can ... If I just assemble the right resources -- in few enough books -- I might not even produce a separate "product." But even if I end up making my own, it's liable to be 90% (or more!) copy/paste from those resources, and not polished-up to a presentational level.
  14. grabbed (thank you!) I have a project in mind; this may be my way to go.
  15. For all that I'd love a P&BR in hardcopy... I agree 100% ! This is an interesting thought... VERY much so! Cherry-pick the "best" RQ3 supplement(s) to upgrade to RQG, with stretchier goals at higher-$ targets for those in need of more work ...
