    Universal systems: Differences and Weaknesses

    This is coming from this thread and it's something I've been thinking about a bit. It seems many of us see universal systems as not truly universal. That is each has a specific style and thus genres or settings it wouldn't work well with. So the idea of this thread is just to talk about that...

    BRP players - any variant?

    I’ve noticed we seem to have a lot of Mythras players and a reasonable sprinkling of other BRP variants too (Especially Call of Cthulhu). How many of you play a variant of BRP?

    Announcing the Basic Roleplaying System Reference Document and Open Game License

    As I think it would be highly unlikely that MOB posts here, I thought I'd link the post on BRP Central. Chaosium is pleased to announce the release of the Basic Roleplaying System Reference Document (SRD). The Basic Roleplaying SRD is based on Basic Roleplaying, the simple, fast, and elegant...

    Of Mythras, Runequest, Glorantha, Edition wars, and where to start???

    So I've been seriously wanting to dig into Runequest/Mythras for some time. I want to read it, absorb it and put it in my back pocket for when my players least expect it and whip it out, and go BOOM! This is what we're doing... (and hopefully they'll bite. I've been taking them out of their...

    New Magic World review on the big purple

    Its really good and can be found here https://www.rpg.net/reviews/archive/17/17905.phtml. I know I am living a pipe dream but I wish Chaosium would republish this book perhaps with a new title, cleaned up layout and typos and a deeper (nautical setting). I know there are a lot of Magic World...

    Basic Role Playing character generation without the math

    I'd like to start a campaign with some form of BRP engine sometime in the future. But I find it tedious to do all the math, like DEX+10 as a base for dodge. It's not like a few points here or there in a skill is very game changing. Everyone starts, in my previous example, with a dodge of say...

    Recommend a Dungeon Crawl

    Hi all, Recently my group, who has been playing CoC for a while, asked to run a dungeon crawl using Magic World rules. Our last dungeon crawl was In Search of the Troll Slayer which was a big hit. The problem is that I don't know of any other modules (for any system) that meet our needs. Can...
