Exploration

With the magic of triangle tables, about five years ago I put together some random tables for post-apocalyptic exploration. I’ve noticed a few tweaks I want to make still, but I figured I’d put them back out there again. These are intended for modern-ish or post-apocalypse settings. Hopefully, they have some semblance of logic (IIRC correctly […]

Nova Praxis Review

I’m going to kick off a new cycle of reviews with a game that I finally finished reading (it’s only be the better part of a year): Nova Praxis. With that, I’m also trying to get a rhythm and structure down to how I approach reviews so they’re informative without just rattling off a bunch […]

Cara Gray’on (sample character)

Cara Gray’on is a Joanite Templar from a minor offshoot of the Uhan’on clan. She was a Blade for number of years, serving along the Seven Fingers. While leading a raid on a Serf settlement in the No Man’s Land between Vimary and Hl’kar, Cara and her fellow Blades were attacked by Z’bri defending the village. Many […]

Sneaksy

I was finally able to start Dishonored last night. Mental note: when trying to configure a hard drive and a little voice keeps telling me “You’ve done this before” don’t answer, “Yeah, so why isn’t this working?” and keep bashing my head against a wall for over an hour. It means you’ve done this before and […]

Vimary Zones and Locations

Finally, I completed my write-up of various zones and locations from Vimary. More accurately, I decided to not include Distance stress tracks for the locations. My intention is still to use them, but they a) were a pain to write up and b) I’m actually thinking they shouldn’t be set in stone. It’s probably a […]

Updated Conversion Doc

I’ve updated the conversion doc with some clarifications on Supplies and Barter. I’ve also revised the travel rules to include the Distance stress track and some clarifications, and included a method for exploration to use the new random exploration tables.

New shiny random exploration tables!

I have completed completely revising and rethinking the random exploration tables, and this is the result. I like them so much better than the previous ones. They may actually be suitable for random generation of modern cities with some modifications. These are going to be really awesome to use once I start a game (which is hopefully […]

FATE triangle table

Gullerbutry on RPG.net apparently came up with a “triangle” table that is absolutely one of the coolest things I have ever seen. I have been trying to figure out a “FATE-like” way of doing a set of random exploration tables, and this just might be the trick I was looking for (laying out the results […]

Zones revisited

Zones There are three scales of zones: Personal, Location (Scene) and Campaign. Unless there is nothing really remarkable about a zone it should have a Defining Aspect and any other interesting Aspects as necessary. Zones can have three Abilities: Terrain, Resources, and Threat. Additionally, borders between zones can have a Border rating. Each scale has […]
