    @Séadna you would probably be glad to learn that I'm now running a Delta Green adventure set in Modern Ireland...and heavily inspired by your thread and the explanations on the Sidhe/Tuatha de Danan.

    Sci-fi RPGs: time dilation from space travel and gravity

    Or you can have a world where people only live in the mountains to avoid the regular tsunamis sweeping the plains...:devil:

    Sandbox RPG: help me understand

    It was a thread long ago where you had expressed some views that I remember, albeit vaguely, to be similar to @Black Leaf 's opinion that "improvising in a sandbox requires illusionism":thumbsup:. That, however, is pretty much how I do it as well, minus the overprepping. So I might be...

    Neoteric Sandbox

    Yes, so? Just anthropomorphize everything:D! Or, as Tristram mentioned, take one of those books like "Tarot as a guide for everyday life" and use the shit out of it. As a bonus, you can then claim you've made real predictions that came to be, with your Tarot deck...which is going to be true...

    The Martial Arts Thread

    And it seems that Carlos Machado himself has uploaded one of his instructionals (that he's made when younger) on YouTube. Haven't watched it yet, but I think some of you might be interested. ...and don't forget to subscribe:shade:!

    Nu-TSR suing WotC: Schadenfreude is back on the menu, boys!

    Dude, on this forum, food posts eventually replace everything...except posting posters of pop-stars with funny texts:D! That sucks:(.

    It beats "litterbox" as a designation...:shade:

    Neoteric Sandbox

    I sometimes use Tarot, but for conflicts and for unexpected complications after the PCs embark on a course of action. When I'm stuck on ideas, I draw 3 Tarot cards on the characters: "What is going on with this quest (and I have a tendency to read that one as simply "the stated motives for the...

    Sandbox RPG: help me understand

    Not sure. I mean, it might be pure sandbox, it depends on whether that was the premise, or whether the GM requested we're running a bar. I'd love it either way:shade:. Over the years, I've used a bird cage, a bokken, a Chinese training sword, and discussion of the (on-topic for the IC events)...

    Sandbox RPG: help me understand

    Well...I really don't expect the enemies really forgot. If they got killed elsewhere, maybe. In some settings, maybe not even then...:shade: But yeah, the rest is about what I'd expect. So how do the characters in your second picture "retire"? Like that? Like Odysseus (who, in a fantasy book...

    Sandbox RPG: help me understand

    Also, things like powerlevel/number of available points, available character traits...:tongue: At some point, I don't see much difference with "and this event happened to all of you". I think that's a needlessly broad definition. ...I'm not sure I get your meaning. Even if they change to home...

    What are y'all up to these days?

    Also, wild and naughty, in a good* way:shade:! *Given that my games also share that quality...:D

    Sandbox RPG: help me understand

    Indeed. It's also something that's decided in play, at the table...which is why I'm making the exception:thumbsup:. Yep. I use my definition, which is quite close, but not 100% the same. Also, do you disagree that PCs are what trashes the setting, while the players are munching...let's say...

    Sandbox RPG: help me understand

    "Make rule-viable characters that fit New York 1937, and know each other, then we go from there". And the "what happens after that" is what matters: can they do anything within the bounds of the setting and reality of the gameworld (which might well include voodoo magic and mesmerism)? Then it's...

    Sandbox RPG: help me understand

    Actually, it happens in my games...and in @BedrockBrendan 's obviously:thumbsup:. And, just as in his games, it doesn't mean an end to adventures - not any more than getting a keep and your own barony means an end to adventures at 9th level in D&D...:D Ayup...and even if it's not an...

    Character Creation Challenge 2022

    Agreed, but then some systems might make it kinda hard to differentiate between the kind of attacks that have been used:thumbsup:!

    Sandbox RPG: help me understand

    For me, only lifepath chargen counts as "part of the campaign":thumbsup:. All the other kinds? Write whatever on your character sheet, as long as it conforms to the rules (i.e. no going over on points) and you're not being a dick by abusing the system. I disagree with that as well. In fact, I'd...

    Character Creation Challenge 2022

    I admit that I'm myself of two minds about it. Does he have pus-spreading wounds on his body? Does he hug his sword against them to make it poisonous? I guess it can really go either way.
