I have a non-political, RPG-related reason to be happy about the new Brexit delay.
I can at least hope a print copy of the Witcher RPG would fit my entertainment budget in the next 6 months (though there are contenders). And I'd prefer to order it from the UK amazon instead of the amazon.de (though I've set up an account there, too).
Working on Bartertown. Finally took some important decisions, like making it fit a general S&S/fantasy setting.
The provisional system is Cepheus Engine. And I might dual-stat it for OSR use, because robertsconley is right: that would make it useful for the biggest number of people.
Technically, 5e would be even better, but we'll see...frankly, it's simply outside my comphort zone atm.
Modern D&D Players (MDDPs) are a particular breed. One I have no desire of cross-polinating with!
On Myth-Weavers: MDDPs: "Random rolling for stats hampers roleplaying".
Me: "Can't process. System error detected!"
And it goes on and on for pages.
Currently moving some RPG files to an external hard drive in order to free some modest 30 GB of HDD space.
And that's less than half of my RPGs. And I'm not moving the ones that I'm currently using.
I just like many games.
"Fans of classless systems are a majority on forums, but a minority in RL games". I've heard this so much I've come to doubt it.
More like, "fans of class systems are focused on the same class system, fans of classless systems have more diverse tastes", I suspect.
And yesterday, while reading his book, I noticed that Anderson Silva's position during the Push Check is pretty much the same. Which is funny, because I was taught Crane Stance with the explanation that it's actually used to check kicks.
Mine is a family where people over a certain age having their personal blades for everyday carry is simply a fact of life.
Kerambits are quite popular (and this type of blade actually has a few Bulgarian names, since it's been in use here for millennia). But balisongs are just nice!
I just realised something...if you use the rules for Randomly determining opposition in CT, the rules actually work pretty much like Usagi Yojimbo/Urban Jungle/Vital Hearts by Sanguine. Except CT has less crunch mostly (when it comes to equipment, CT has more).
Last few days are fun!
My 2yo son used a kerambit for the first time. (It was a folder and I allowed him to use the handle's spike to break the ice - literally - on the kid's slide).
I'm playing Sleeping Dogs, taking notes for RPG campaigns. I *love* that game almost as much as Fallout, now, and might end up liking it even more!
Also, training Wing Chun/JKD, and liking it more than I expected (revisiting sambo soon).
Next time you hear about preserving a tradition, any tradition, remember this quote:
"You must surpass me. If the student does not surpass the teacher, then the art begins to die." —Wang Kiu
It's a full traditional quote - by a traditional master (google the name and Ip Man together...)!
