  • Latest discussions with Agemegos Agemegos regarding Ease Factor systems made me remember this gem.

    A player said that my sister is "an unicorn slash ghost", because she still hasn't joined the Discord server we're on.
    Now I'm thinking how to incorporate a Slash Ghost into my campaign!
    Beware the mind of a GM. It works in mysterious ways!
    "Where there's good, there's evil as well...for without evil, how would we know good?" - My spark of today.

    Also, I'm working on a random table for the World of Orb setting. Stay cued, I'mma post it when it's ready!

    After Daughter sent me some quizzes (and one of them required something called Rice purity test): Obviously I'm a King, not a soldier and not a poet...and my Rice purity test is 27.
    I didn't know not drinking would get me so high!
    Lessons from 2023:
    Don't count on humans, for they can be an unreliable bunch.
    Don't count on any item, for attachment is the road to suffering.
    Don't count on spirit, for it can be ground into dust.
    Just get some rest when you can, protect your moral core so as to be able to die tomorrow without regret, and get some fun while/when you can:heart:!
    I peered in the Abyss (TBP's Infraction board) & was deeply troubled!
    Why? Because some of the Most Faithful seem to have troubles now! I mean, ifold A.Sudonomo is in trouble now, who wouldn'tbe:shock:?
    I'll make my "Create Your Own Wuxia Sandbox" thread here instead of boring ye all kindly souls who put up with my posting:grin:!

    #0: My sandbox is going to be the City of Fragrant Pearls (name subject to change!), a place that never existed in China, but should have (BTW, China would have been better off being like a wuxia setting), where mystics striving for immortality rub shoulders with eunuch sorcerers!

    The talk about Doom in the "Making comic book Earths immersive" just gave me an idea...
    There's a GM in my family who I'd like to run wuxia for me. But her interests and education don't exactly run in that direction.
    So what if I suggest to her running a street-level superhero game, instead:grin:?
    Someone plese tell this guy that it's the games he plays that suck (or his GMs), it's not the RPGs as a whole:grin:!
    I keep thinking about a campaign inspired by Eric van Lustbader's Ninja series...and Destined would fit it like a glove:shade:!

    Tell me whether I'm mad, or very, very right, please:grin:!

    Also, I ran a one-shot exactly like that with Destined. The PCs saved Zelenskyy - in a totally apolitical, sandbox way...they actually had an option to help the hired hitman.
    Some details of that adventure shall remain unknown to the public forever, though.
    I just found a good comparison for "playing a game in a different system, say in Mythras instead of D&D": it's like making a piano cover of a pop song (or vice versa, if you're using D&D instead of an original system:devil:).
    Fuck it, I wish holmgangs were still allowed!



    ...AsenRG, while watching how an older colleague is indoctrinating a younger one into his political, ahem, ideology. Which happens to be an ideology I find abhorrent.
    I renewed my library card.
    Turns out, the reading room is a great place for preparing for sessions. And they let you get your Kindle in there.
    ...aaaaaaaaaaand now I know that I'm/was a moron. OTOH, that means I have a breakthrough for my system, and am no longer a moron.
    Moar2be posted later. But at least I finally have a reply to a question Silverlion Silverlion asked me a while ago:shade:!
    Some (Bulgarian) guy on FB is suffering, questioning himself "where the Bulgarians have always been 'bearers of the pentagram'"...and I'm perplexed. WTFF? Anyone has context?
    A creationist managed to get me to revise my opinion on evolution...
    Me, on FB: "...your ancestors, the apes..."
    Creationist: "I'm a human and my ancestors are humans!"
    Me: "You're right, obviously it's not right to call the apes 'ancestors'. It seems many people are still apes!"
    Team Creationist just scored a point.
    So, a city modeled after Spain in the roughly 17th century. Fantasy setting where the Spain is a theocracy. I have to offer the PCs, a rag-tag bunch, 3 things to do...a conflict with the Not-Russian-Not-Mafia is one. A fetch quest from Not-North-Africa is another. What's the third?
    I think I just resolved the issue with Resource Dice...
    Houserule: As soon as you roll "ammo out", you have 1d3+1 shots/arrows/whatever left, start keeping track!
    That is all, but I think it might interest some of you... Fenris-77 Fenris-77 CRKrueger CRKrueger Voros Voros I think I remember you complaining about it:thumbsup:!
    Guys, I just found a Brazilian scenario set in New Amsterdam, 17th century. Odds are, all other games just lost me for about a week...:thumbsup:

    Still slowly digesting this one, my reading speed isn't what I'm used to when reading in Portuguese. But I'm doing my best!

    Though I got sidetracked while preparing for the one-shot I'm planning to run.
    Just found a funny SF webcomic. "Society in the Future has evolved in some areas...but also took a page from Demolition Man and took it seriously. I mean, No Touching".
    NSFW, obviously (and LGBT characters abound, if anyone cares).
    Still, it's rather good, and with surprisingly little violence. Though they have kinda-hockey.
    My plans to run a one-shot of Fighting Thee Geese Conspiracy are getting more and more concrete and getting into the system. Still undecided which one I would pick, but I know the characters would have Swo points.
    And bonus points for selling it as a serious game!
    And now I'm looking for an RPG where weapons give bonuses and penalties to hit (variable damage optional), inflict different damage conditions...and if possible, the number of actions per round varies according to a roll, but I'm willing to compromise on that one:grin:!
    But the bonuii to hit and damage conditions are mandatory.
    Anyone knows of one? Or do I need to start a thread?
    That was a Nietzsche quote. Alas, I can't save the picture, so you get a pointless status instead:thumbsup:.
    Post-apocalyptic scenario seed in this post:
    That's it, I've decided on where my next campaign is going to be set: A garden surrounded by a jungle.
    I'm not going to tell you why because it might be kinda political. Suffice it to say, I just liked the imagery:thumbsup:!
    Now if I only knew when I'm going to run anything, too!
    I've been thinking about the isekai genre lately. What does it tell us that a) it's getting more popular lately and b) every time I hear about it, it almost invariably mentions the protagonist going after sexy alien chicks:shade:?
    "Canada's D&D cuts buyout offer for Australia's Link under regulator probe". A misleading title if you're an RPG player!

    "That's Dad when he's happy!" - First Daughter.
    ...do I really look like that:shock:?
    I've been thinking about gamebooks (the Fighting Fantasy/Bloodsword/Way of the Tiger kind), lately. And about superheroes. Now what can I do if I combine both? Hmm...

    Sent. More like 10 times longer than the space allowed for comments here...sorry, guys.
    The gist of it: never seen those titles A Fiery Flying Roll Black Leaf mentions, alas. I've read two supers gamebooks, one of which is my idea of Doing It Wrong.

    Also, I just managed to translate a shortstory-game I'd written a few years ago. Alas, it's not superheroes-related...
    Might post it here, pending moderator permission:shade:. If not, I'd post it somewhere else and/or send it via PMs on demand.
    I took a picture of myself. Here's AsenRG AsenRG trying to give a funny look.

    So now I'm curious what you imagined me looking like... Rasputin:tongue:?

    That or Fedor Emilianenko, which is my brain’s shorthand for Slavic grappler.

    Slavic-looking grappler-fencer in my case, but that's a great compliment either way:thumbsup:! I do strive to incorporate some things from Fedor's style, indeed. Not sure how successful I've been, though.

    Also, I used to have (almost waist-)long hair before deciding to give grappling a go, which is why I suggested Rasputin:shade:.

I bought a variety of energy drinks and the only one that I exhibited a positive response to was the one with a huge dose of vitamin B12.”

    Maybe it's the hardback? That lists at $35.

    OTOH I've seen wacky prices for the Chaosium RQII hardback reprint on Amazon, when you can still buy it new from the publisher.
