Hi

Newbie here. I came across an archive. What happen to Volcanohound? I think he is awesome for Pathfinder release. What's his story and why he suddenly went missing?

Sorry for off topic.

Cheers.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Unisystem) Anon!moNoTOnous 17/03/12(Sun)18:52 No. 119357 [Reply]

File 148934114192.png - (115.75KB , 497x424 , d0.png )

When I first learned that there was actually a roleplaying game about this (The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Other Strangeness), I knew I had to get my hands on a copy of it. Then I realized two things that made the game unsuitable for what I wanted to do with it: first, it was the Palladium System, which I find awkward and cumbersome. Yet, what made me discard this was that ALL NPCS must be some kind of animals. A core element of every cartoon adaptation and all comic versions -starting with the original Mirage Comics- was the "everything and the kitchen sink" cast, featuring cyborgs, robots, aliens, mundane-but-extremely-badass humans, and so on.
So, I thought the Unisystem, using literally a single dice for all the throws that matter, and having an assload of supplementary material, would fit my needs. What I needed was Qualities and Drawbacks that I could use to generate characters that were:
>Ninjas
>Mutants
>Robots/cyborgs
>Psionics
>Any combination of the afforementioned

Two of the solutions came right from the All Flesh Must Be Eaten supplements. If you're unfamiliar with AFMBE's supplements, you shall know they're mostly "Zombies and Shit", in which you could easily remove the "Zombie" part and you'd have a solid book for "Shit: the RPG". For instance, if you take out the zombies from "Fistful O' Zombies" you still have a nice book for Wild West and spaghetti western campaigns, and if you take the walking dead out of "Argh! Thar Be Zombies!" you'd have a pirate RPG sourcebook, with rules for nautical combat and swashbuckling stuff.

So I took All Tomorrow's Zombies (Zombies in spaaaace!) and took the whole Robot/Cyborg shit, plus some futuristic weapons and armor for good measure, and moved on to the second most important book.

Enter The Zombie has all the martial arts/gun fu/chi techniques down to a science, so I took the whole thing, plus armor and weapons. Having the Ninja part taken care of, I needed to sort out the Turtle Part.

>"I had fun with this shit. I'll leave it here so you can try it if you wish."
Read the whole post or you might end asking things already answered.

>You must really hate palladium to not take the minute it took to find the information.

Half that and half "not gonna go chasing things that might or might not be there when I could use the stuff I already know and master"

>Myself, I've always been less than excited over the Unisystem after seeing it in action with Buffy. It just seemed 'meh'.
No, no, no. Unisystem comes in two flavors, Cinematic (Angel, Buffy, Ghosts of Albion, Army of Darkness, Beyond Human) and Classic (All Flesh Must Be Eaten, Armageddon, Conspiracy X 2.0, Terra Primate and WitchCraft). I favor Classic over the simplified Cinematic, for it's more strict with the rules.

>However, I can use the same search to very easily tell that the supplements cover All Flesh Must Be Eaten, Armageddon, Conspiracy X 2.0, Terra Primate, WitchCraft, Angel, Army of Darkness and Ghosts of Albion. Took me all of a few seconds.
The supplements do NOT cover Army of Darkness, Ghosts Of Albion or Terra Primate, nor are they supplements to anything else. Maybe you should have taken another couple of seconds.

#1 I read the posts, just trying to get a conformation of intent.

#2 Oh I understand [I have systems I dislike too], just pointing out that it REALLY didn't take any time to find out the info you said you didn't have.

#3 I've also seen All Flesh Must Be Eaten and wasn't any more excited about it's being Classic vs Cinematic. Buffy was just my first 'meh' and was an example, but my comments in my posts cover both 'flavors'.

#4 "Army of Darkness, Ghosts Of Albion or Terra Primate": You yourself note them just one paragraph up in your post, so I'm guessing you are arguing some kind of semantics [and I checked and they all have "GAME SYSTEM: UNISYSTEM". I'm using supplement to mean something that's adding on to the core system. [Unisystem [core] + supplement [setting book].

#5 You seem to like Unisystem, so I'll say Happy Gaming.

My posts where never really about 'one system is better' but letting everyone know it's super easy, in this day and age, to find out what books come along with a system and find out that they cover. It's not like the old days when you had to track down a physical book and thumb through the pages to see it'll suit you. We ARE on a site where you can most likely download them all and 'thumb' through them digitally if you wish if you wish though.

I'm searching for fitting rpg system with given requirements:

- no theater, entirely strategic decisions
- no hex/square grid
- using miniatures/tokens and measuring distance
- preferably with complex terrains like elevation, bushes, mud, water etc
- no religion/politics/fate/customs etc topics that you have to know to play the game
- no mordheim becouse simplistic and weird magic system

Any help anons?

My first thought is, if you don't want theater, you don't want an RPG. All RPGs are theater to some degree.
Almost any game that uses squares or hexes, can be switched to just using a ruler. I do this in my 5e game sometimes. 6 inches is 30ft.

And can you explain a bit more about what you mean by "no religion/politics/fate/customs etc" Are you referring to meta-mechanics like fate points or something else?

You don't want an RPG, you want a skirmish wargame.

Saul+Dagenham 17/03/08(Wed)14:15 No. 119131

That's not an RPG system, that's a detailed dungeon crawler/skirmish game.
Look for Song of Blade and Heroes with some add-ons (or maybe just the new edition), it has a detailed campaign and development system, with lots of options.

Hello all! This here will be a thread solely for discussion and requests, as well as a place to help clean or donate, Pathfinder Paizo material (and 3PP material as well). We try to get the main lines first each month (RPG, Campaign, Player Companion, Adventure Path, Module) and then with other things coming along when we have them to clean and share. Please email me if you have anything to share or help with. Here's a starter set of links to share to start this thread off! Thank you! And thank you to the cleaners/donors that help with this.

TL;DR: Made a game setting in 2014 that has come true, from Prez Trump to Drone workers. Should we change setting or not?

Hey. I am part of a small group that made our first game, a tabletop rpg. We spent most of our time building the system and rules but in 2014, we started alpha testing. People had difficulty making characters without a setting so we made one. Here is the problem:
IN the near future (2018-2020) the American president rises to power on a platform of making America great again after many years of war time hardships. His alliance with the long time fr-enemy Russia is based around fighting terrorism. The setting is cyberpunk-ish so drones and automated factories were around as well. Sadly these are now popping up in the real life news.
I worry that to release the story as is would be seen as a political stance regardless of our intent. Any ideas? Are we jumping at shadows, should we trust that the more fantastical changes and alterations to our fictional timeline is enough to keep us in the clear or should we pivot and try to make a new setting? Gen-Con is 6 months away and that was going to be our big public beta.

(Image is the emblem for an organization in our setting.)

The idea of a questionnaire at the testing is a stroke of genius actually. I am most likely going to borrow that idea. As for further changes, we didn't plan on a president making a wall, that was "new" but we did play with the female idea before shelving it.

Glad to help. I really think a game using a modern setting can find a niche, and provide a nice alternative to the standard fare. So while I may lean towards fantasy (1E), horror (Cthulhu) and space (Traveler), I look forward to perusing your work once it becomes available.

Best of luck, 8)

When you're writing science fiction that looks at various trends and stretches various events, it's hard to predict what might actually happen and what might be barely avoided. TBH, if you think keeping whatever element will just give you shit, then perhaps consider modifying it. That said, this could compromise your original vision. For what it's worth, you can add a disclaimer that flat out states that connections to our reality our coincidental and don't directly align with the author's views.

I've had this problem too, especially in light of recent events as well. I joke that it predicted the rise (and fall) of the "SJW" authoritarian-left as well as the "Alt Right" authoritarian-right. Not to mention, the rise of extreme groups and parties taking power and influence within the West (particularly the United States.)

Did it really predict this? No, I was just writing interesting factions for players to encounter/possibly clash with/maybe even align with if they so choose. That said, my setting has sort of evolved (devolved?) into something political as a result. But hey, I've had to make groups making fun of my own views to avoid seeming preachy... it kinda worked out, I guess. Perhaps you can add some self-deprecating touches. It's a method that has worked out for countless comedians and the like to avoid coming across as narcissistic, after all.

Barring that, take the South Park approach and examine the flaws of every side, take no prisoners and keep nothing sacred! I know you're not trying to make satire, but that could still work too.
