  1. Hi What would you guys recommend as good watching/reading inspiration for running an Android game?

    Learning about Android

    So with the complete unavailability of The World Of Android where’s a good place to start learning about the setting?

    Heirs of Blood

    There’s a framework definitely.

    Shadow of the Beanstalk TV/Book inspiration

    Some of the elements around the Two character especially. And the corporations behaviour. Dark Matter has a great filming style, very underrated show.

    Imperial Navy Core Rulebook?

    Ah I don’t play video games so I think I missed your point sorry. It’s a good one though and maybe a good sign for those that want it that an Imperial sourcebook isn’t totally off the table.

    Imperial Navy Core Rulebook?

    Cassian (and Saw Gerrera) definitely show a darker side of the rebellion but Cassian at least starts to see a different path than just aping the empires follow orders doctrine. Im not sure Vader is an example of a playable imperial. Last minute redemption is a great story point but up to that point he’s a vicious sadist. The problem with the fiction is that I don’t see how you can play a ‘heroic’ or ‘good’ imperial for long given the Empires nature. It’s a repressive, facist civilisation that uses brute force, fear and immoral practices to sustain itself. Now it’s a RPG and people might want to explore the monster within but I’m not built that way personally. For me an Imperial sourcebook is essentially a monster manual of bad guys and gear to beat on, blow up or steal. I agree with you and several others in that I can’t see the House of Mouse exploring the darker side of the SW club.

    Imperial Navy Core Rulebook?

    Only one side enslaves and works indigenous populations to death and it ain’t the rebellion. You can be deliberately ignorant of your groups atrocities but that wilful act is enough in my view to paint you a bad guy. Anyway I’m not looking to derail the thread any further. I can see many uses for an imperial sourcebook, for me it supplies variations on the antagonists my players can duff up.

    Imperial Navy Core Rulebook?

    No decent person could serve the Empire. They might delude themselves but no one that stands by whilst a society engages in slavery, genocide and fascism is ‘decent’.

    Imperial Navy Core Rulebook?

    Yes but a jumping point to a rebellion game for me, like I said ymmv.
  14. HorusArisen

    Imperial Navy Core Rulebook?

    Ymmv but I have a hard time envisioning a racist or racist enabler, goose stepping servant of a fascist regime otherwise. Hey it’s my take on them and if you can get something out of a sourcebook I hope they print one.

    Blue Rose - The Rhydan races

    So as always when bored in work I start thinking RPG. Does the NDS system have any playable animal races in the vein of Blue Roses Rhydan? Maybe stolen from Star Wars? how easy do you think it would be to do?
  21. Hi I’d love some feedback on some magical mechanics I was thinking about to add flavour. So I’m bashing around ideas about adding some flavour to magic as follows the three groups are split as thus. Solar (Arcane) Lunar (Divine) Earth (Primal) Now a bit more is involved (magical materials etc) but for now what do you see as the impact good or bad for the following Solar Add boost die for magic during the day Add setback die for magic during the night Upgrade skill to proficiency die during lunar eclipses Upgrade difficulty to challenge die during solar eclipses Lunar New Moon - Upgrade difficulty to challenge die Waxing Crescent First Quarter Waxing Gibbous - Add boost die Full Moon - Upgrade skill to proficiency die Waning Gibbous Third Quarter Waning Crescent - Add setback die Primal I was thinking seasonal with bonuses/penalties related to the type of magic based on seasonal associations but I’m still working on the list and balance of it. Also I was thinking about calendar related add ons, any ideas? Alban Eilir 21 March :Spring Equinox a time of festival and drinking, the middle of Spring. Calan Haf 1 May: a time of festival and drinking, the first day of summer. Alban Hefin 21 June: a time of festival and drinking, (Summer Solstice). Gwyl Ifan a time of festival and drinking, otherwise known as Midsummer's day. Calan Awst 1 August: The first day of Autumn, a time of festival and drinking. Alban Elfed 23 September: Autumnal equinox a time of festival and drinking, the middle of Autumn. Nos Galan 31 October and 1 November: Winter's eve and the first day of Winter Alban Arthan 22 December: Winter Solstice or Midwinter festival, a time of festival and drinking, the shortest day of the year. Does this seem balanced so far? Any thoughts or suggestions?

    My magical mechanical flavour add ons (naff title apologies)

    I like your point in just using it narratives to save on adding rules

    Beyond the Wall Thought Exercise

    So although I’m not a fan of the underlying system I really dig the character and community generation of Beyond the Wall. Since work is inherently boring I’ve been pondering the game and got to wondering how would people adapt it to; Genesys Could you generate stats and the various accoutrements of a Beyond the wall character with the above? Particularly Genesys which doesn’t incorporate random character builds.
  24. Does anyone know if this is being reprinted? can only find for 2-3x the price.
