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.

These are all recent releases (which is probably why none have found their ways into the troves I'm aware of), but it couldn't hurt to raise awareness that the interest is out there. Looking for
• GM's guide to Kaidan from Rite Publishing
• We Be Leshys! by Zenith Games

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.

Anonymous 17/02/11(Sat)05:15 No. 117535

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.

That's unfair, English might not be his/her first language.

Thank you, but not what I was looking for. I was looking for the newer, combined version. Which, if anyone is interested, I've found here.

There is zero difference between the content of the Deluxe Edition (which is the current one) and the Deluxe Explorer's Edition. The only difference is that the Deluxe edition is a physically standard-sized book and the Deluxe Explorer's Edition is a smaller-sized book. But the pdfs have same content and page size is irrelevant.

Well, 40k's rule are terribly written and follow atrocious game design, with the writers caring more about what looks cool and sell shit than actually making a game.

However, the lore is still pretty good (as long as you ignore everything written by ward), and the aesthetics are overall pretty nice. There are some stupid designs (ie Necron vehicles), but there tends to be more good designs.

I could never get into Warmahordes. Lore never interested me, and I found the aesthetics to be pretty lacklustre, especially the Warjacks, which look like something from WoW, with their deformed proportions and whatnot.

Smack down the WarmaHorde and the Warhammer Martian Banshee 17/02/06(Mon)00:13 No. 117157

I played my last game of 40K in 1993 (yeah, I'm that old), WFB in 2000, and only demoed WarMaHordes twice in 2012. Bottom line: various CEOs of GW have repeatedly stated that they are a miniatures company, period. ON the other hand, they've been insisting on "official and current" miniatures as a requirement for participation in their "official" tournaments. I have no idea what the WMHordes crowd does; I expect pretty much the same. I see a lot of complaints about the crowd, that's always been a problem with the "biggest" games. Quantity of players has a quality of it's own, and often that's crap quality.

You wanna have fun? Check out Two Hour Wargames, Two Fat Lardies, Osprey and some of the other guys specializing in rules, then grab whatever minis you want, proxy the hell out of everything if you need to. Your good friends won't care, and if you guys are having fun, people will gravitate to check out the game. If you're having fun, the fun will sell itself. Those who say, "I only play Game X" are fucktards not worthy of knowing you.

It's not what you play, it's who you play with.

Anonymous 17/02/06(Mon)08:17 No. 117182

It really depends what you're looking for. And more importantly, what can you get games for? Bootstrapping a local community never seems to work out for me, but trying it again with Frostgrave anyway :p

Lets assume you can get games for both, because they're both fairly large. What models do you like more? You're going to be staring at them for hours while you assemble (and paint or not paint, whatever), better make sure you like them.

I'm dipping back into 40k slowly, with a new Tau army. Am really looking forward to playing some simple Kill Team.
