I played a bit of 1st ed, but never ran it, so wouldn't be as knowledgeable on the fluff as others.

I got the first draft of Liminal last night. Haven’t read through all the setting stuff yet but I like what I’ve read so far. The system is pretty simple 2d6 + skill + bonuses from traits vs a difficulty number. It doesn’t have any real classes although the book does suggest a few comon concepts and how to build them. The general player character concepts can be divided into 5 types. Normal humans aware of the hidden world, magicians, changelings, dhampirs, and werewolves. The magic is fairly subtle, blessings, wards, divination, that kind of thing. The most flashy being the ability to control the weather.

It also has some other fun stuff like the crew creation where each players come together and decide on a goal for the crew gets to create some kind of asset for the group ranging from connections, to a hideout, or informants to name some of the optons. The crew is supposed to be like family for these outsiders that have joined together with the main cast of being BBC’s Being Human listed as a good example of a crew albeit a weird one. The setting seems fun from what I’ve read too. Fae courts, a ghost world, a secret magician’s college at Oxford, and other fun stuff. All and all I think it’s going to be a fun system especially once all the supplementals that are going to be released thanks to all the stretch goals that were reached.

So it's been a while since I posted here, but I got Lexicon of the Throne for Godbound. It's a very excellent little supplement, clocking in at just over 90 pages-ish. I got the pdf for about $10 on drivethrurpg, and I feel it was pretty worth the cost. Came with new Words to use and some handy advice in general about creating religions in a game world.

I also have been delving into OSR games in general, and I bought a world-building book. The Castle Oldskull Game World Generator (Deluxe Edition) by Kent David Kelley. It goes through a really extensive process for map-making and worldbuilding that is incredibly impressive. Very worth the $5 I spent to get the pdf.

Recently obtained the infinity rpg for a game here, and really like it! Book isnt the best laid out, and they really need someone to diagram sone thi gs out as they explain what turns out to be rather simple things in overcomplicated (to me) ways.

And getting started on the new 40k kill team, which i hope will be fun!

Another game i got is called summerlands, which is a rather nice one as well..

I think the new Vampire rules went live this week. Anyone had a read through those yet?

Got a hold of Chaosium's old Elric! and Stormbringer 5th edition rpgs.

Very similar to Call of Cthulhu's classic rules due to using the Basic Roleplaying system, you can make really badass characters from the start though.

You roll 2d6+6 for statistics (the main stats are comparable to D&D, so a Str of 10-11 is human average and 16-18 is peak condition) though interestingly you use d100 to face-off using them (essentially converting to percentages from 50% and + or - 5% per difference in the attribute, a Str 10 person wrestling a Str 14 person has 30% chance to beat them, whilst the Str 14 person has 70% chance to beat the other person).

There's also the classic skill list rated in percentages with enough skill points to purposefully raise skills past 100% (you always fumble on a 00 roll, though criticals are measured by rolling under your skill rating divided by 5). This is helpful for Dodge as each extra one you need to do past the first in a single combat round (so when you're outnumbered usually) reduces the chance by 30% and the same goes for Parries which are totalled using your skill in that Weapon.

You ever wonder how many list you're on because of Tabletop RPGs? I keep googling ANFO because I used  it to kill a dragon once and I want to remember the recipe for the next time a dragon shows up.

Eh. After a short story I wrote required me to google 'how long does it take to strangle someone to death' and 'dissolving human bodies in lye', I'm pretty sure I am already on all the watch lists.

Heh.

On another note, I'm kind of feeling down these days, because I have a ton of RPG books and no energy to read through them. Also, nobody wants to play with me anyway... :(

Modern rouge is a great show for RPG players.

rough link and intro thing to the sequel to Tales from the Loop, which as the characters are older, could make an awesome game for on here potentially!

I have scrimped and saved, and I finally had enough money to pick up Wraith: the Oblivion, the 20th anniversary edition. Only as a pdf, but still. I am excited to read it. ^^

I have the hard cover of it sitting not 3 feet from me and the work they did on it is fantastic. The system is so much better now than it was. Also pick up the Handbook for the Recently Deceased if you can. It has some great advice for running and playing Wraith.

I almost never have room for or money for hardcovers, though I do have to say the pdf is definitely lovely so far.

Also pick up the Handbook for the Recently Deceased if you can. It has some great advice for running and playing Wraith.

I did get that one, too! I wanted to get it because Wraith is a game I'm not as familiar with and it looked like the sort of guide that would really benefit me to read! :D

I rarely have the money for hardcovers but I saved up special for this one as I love Wraith. The world and concept was always so amazing. The rules were just lackluster.

I have 7th Sea (first and 2nd ed) and Pathfinder. Also others like the older Firefly/Serenity books. Hairy has heaps of other games.

The opening to Wraith 20th Anniversary edition is insane. There's a Klan rally, There's a ghost watching his mom shoot up is heroin in a trailer park, a biker gang throws a motorcycle off a cliff.

I know WOD is weird but this is some next level strangeness.

White Wolf (or whatever company which owns the games now) has always balanced that fine line between making interesting games with dark themes, and those who look upon their successful predecessors but don't achieve the finesse that made those ones successful.

So Spire RPG is coming out with its first source book and I am super excited about it. Already backed it on KS. The system has one of my favorite settings and I really like the system. The new book is coming out with a boatload of stuff that makes me can't wait to get it. A bunch of setting information focused on the different parts of society in the Spire, a minimum of 5 new scenarios, a bunch of new extra advances, and two new classes. One is a class focused on making magical cover identities and one of the things I'm now really excited for a spell caster class who has the ability to channel the power of pulp fiction stories into magic. So, so excited for it.

Does anyone else watch hours of DM advice videos without ever planning to actually GM? I think I'd be a horrible GM because I lack the commitment needed for it but I'm fascinated by the craftsmanship of it.

I remember a Werewolf supplement that has a gay pride rally that turns into a full blown riot with the riot caused by an evil megacorporation because . . . reasons??? . . . and some of the rioters and cops are secretly evil monsters called Formori and one of the werewolves is gay and his evil dad shows up to try and recruit him into the Black Spiral Dancers.

The general rule of thumb for most Old World of Darkness books is not 'were the writers on cocaine when they created this', but 'how much cocaine were the writers on when they created this'. Whoever did the 20th Anniversary books knew this and partook appropriately for inspiration.

So today I learned there's a game called Gaslands that's essentially more skirmish based where you play with Hotwheels and such and there's peeps who customize them with weapons and all sorts of Mad Max shit.

Basically it's table top Twisted Metal and I am one thousand percent in.
