    Different types of World in Motion

    My view is what it boils down to does it effect the behavior of the NPCs the players interact with? For example a war in another sector. If it doesn't tie in to a NPC's behavior by some causal social chain then it might as well not exist as far as the PCs are concerned. Anything that can alter...

    Random VTT rant

    Once you had something setup and your friends logged on to play, it was pretty nice to referee. What I liked best was the ability to "possess" a character and interact with the PCs while controlling that character. I got to the point where I could hop between two to four NPCs to keep a...

    It is a superposition thus indeterminate odds.

    Percentile "advantage" system

    So on anydice https://anydice.com/program/244a0 I tried best one out of 3d10 to get a sense of how the odds would skew on the tens. The 50% mark on taking the best 2 out of 3 would make results higher than around 88% more frequent at 50% of the time. So you giving a rough +35% bonus.

    What do you think are the most damaging ideas in the hobby?

    The only mechanical effect in the 3 LBBs was the inability of magic users to use magic swords. Every weapon did 1d6 damage

    What’s a critically acclaimed RPG you don’t like?

    @AsenRG In regards to magic systems, I found that as long you don't do something that requires you touch/rewrite every spell. It can be straightforward to tweak a magic system despite the fact that RPG magic system are completely made up stuff. In fact that principle is key for the rest of the...

    A Lamborghini car is wasted in me. All I want out of my car that it works, can transport a decent amount of stuff for it size, and that it gets me from A to B. But I have friends where a Lamborghini would appreciate and they would enjoy driving that much more even if just going from A to B. The...

    Because when it come to various genres, systems are more alike than different. Systems that take way too much work to use are one tightly welded to a very specific setting or narrow subgenre like Exalted. But for the most part there is a center because of the fact most system deal what human...

    Thanks for the suggestion but if we are talking regular sheet probably not. Maybe if it was provolone or swiss.

    Concerning the OSR, Everything is All Right Over the summer and recently I seen posts and opinions on the direction of the Old School Renaissance or OSR. Just keep in mind that due to how it came about. A result of discussion and sharing on the Internet combined with judicious use of open...

    What’s a critically acclaimed RPG you don’t like?

    The various Mongoose Traveller adventures released in the past few years have been pretty damn good, like Pirates of Drinax and Deepnight Relevation. While for Mongoose Traveller 2nd edition, that version (as well as 1e) is only a hop and a skill from several Traveller editions including classic...

    What’s a critically acclaimed RPG you don’t like?

    It was until the release of Modern AGE and it's options. It still the default with Fantasy AGE but the system is pretty straightforward to modify. So after the first two campaigns we modified it to tone it down. This well before the release of Modern AGE.

    What’s a critically acclaimed RPG you don’t like?

    To me AGE looks like an evolution from 3.X via True20. With a lot of emphasis placed on talents i.e. feats. Although I don't view its heritage as a negative aside from the hit point issue. I have my own take on the general idea in a rough draft form (not the science fiction variant I came up with).

    What’s a critically acclaimed RPG you don’t like?

    Degree of success have huge issues with progression unless you keep on top of the numbers. Stunt Dice in contrast doesn't break just because you gain +umpteenth bonus in a skill. From a designer's standpoint they are their own mechanic with a specific set of odds. A lot easier to tweak than the...

    Thanks for the tip. I got practice in figure out the right amount with the intense stuff from when I first got Garum.

    What’s a critically acclaimed RPG you don’t like?

    The major flaw in AGE is the hit point bloat. The skill advancement system I think is too coarse as well but otherwise it is a great system and it now has official options to deal with the hit point situation.

    Thanks, I will have to give this a try. I did try Garum which is made with anchovies, boy that is salty.
