 Survey Survey: The Survey
Posted: 2021-03-29T22:19:20+00:00
Author: /u/M0dusPwnens

About a month ago, we asked for your input on how we should handle surveys in the subreddit. We've now put together a survey using the results that will determine how we moderate surveys going forward. Before voting, please consider visiting the thread to see arguments for and against.

Two issues brought up in the thread:

  1. Surveys should count as self-promotion.

    They already do! But our rules about self-promotion are purposefully vague, both to remain welcoming and to give moderators the discretion to deal with people just barely toeing the line - who aren't really contributing in good faith. I've added a question to the survey about this.

  2. We should have content guidelines/vet surveys for the quality of the questions.

    This is not something that we are going to do. Developing and enforcing guidelines like this would be difficult, and most people posting surveys are posting them to multiple places and are not going to change them just for this one community, and for some research surveys it may be impossible to change the questions.

Before you vote, please consider looking at the thread above and also please remember:

  1. You are voting on what moderation should be applied above and beyond what downvotes already accomplish. If your experience is that, in practice, downvotes already solve this problem, then a ban is not necessary.

  2. You are voting on what the moderation policy should be now. Base your vote on what you see in the subreddit as it exists now and how you feel about it, not on a hypothetical future where surveys have gotten out of control and overwhelmed the subreddit. If that future comes, we'll revisit this - there's no need to steel ourselves against it prematurely.

This is the survey.

 Trying to find an RPG Book, WW2 demon style, with weird druids/ witches.
Posted: 2021-04-09T22:09:10+00:00
Author: /u/OldTreePuncher

Game found, it was Degenesis

So this was about 4-5 years ago that I found this artist, and they were creating a world for an RPG. I am trying to find it again, but sadly this is turning into an impossible task.

Here is what I remember:

  • The art style was similar to Mike Franchina's Or Brom's if he did WW2 style demons and soldiers.
  • The website I found it on was in Russian, I believe. I remember my nephew helping me with some of it (he speaks fluent Russian Thanks to the DoD)
  • There were Demons, and a lot of World War 2 style character designs.
  • Several factions were in the game, a Druidic one, a Demon one, A Church styled one, and I believe 2-3 others.
  • Lastly, and I hate to post this, but its the only thing I remember outside of what I put above. There was a pic of a female druid/ witch, that would have been a poster child for Impractical Armor, because all she had for "pants" was a belt that covered her more private bits, and then a sweater. (gods I feel pervy writing that)

I've been all over Art Station, as that's where I originally found it all, and can't find anything now. But as I said, its been several years, and I should have just bought the book at the time.

Thank you for your time and help.

ETA: Adrian Smith's work was also similar

 Naively Simple Alchemy - a freeform alchemy system for fantasy rpgs
Posted: 2021-04-10T09:44:32+00:00
Author: /u/CarloFantom

This is a simple system for Alchemy and potion-making that I wrote. Though it was written with the OSR in mind, the system is free-form and can probably be used in any fantasy rpg without having to be reworked.

I want to share it because I think it's the best thing I've written to date.

Why You Should be Using: Fate Adversary Toolkit

It is more than just a book about how to create better villains...although it does that too!It is not just about making the characters lives more difficult, but doing it with style!

The FATE series is easily some of the most popular video on my channel, Castle Archon. See what the hub-bub is all about!

Watch the video!

 My RPG sessions are extremely slow. What can I do as a player to make it progress faster?
Posted: 2021-04-10T09:55:39+00:00
Author: /u/Kalhamura

We've played 3 sessions so far, the game system is Skyfall (high fantasy in urban setting), in the second session we spent almost the entire 3 hours on a single fight (which is my least favorite part of TTRPGs).

What can I do as a player to make sure things run smoother and we don't spend 3 hours on a single combat?

 New Rules Light Sci-Fi TTRPG FinalHorizon is Free to Download!
Posted: 2021-04-09T17:39:14+00:00
Author: /u/iamabot413

Hey everyone, just had a gift I wanted to drop off for you all, but first a little story:

A few years ago I got a whim to develop a rules light TTRPG system that'd offer a more intuitive, streamlined, and fast paced fantasy ruleset than games like Dungeons & Dragons (no hate, I'm a long time DM). What started as a hobby turned into a passion project, and after years of developing and play testing, FinalDungeon was released on DriveThruRPG for free download.
While I fully expected to only wind up with a handful of downloads that could be traced mostly back to my own promotion, I was elated by the response over over 300 downloads since Christmas 2020, and was inspired to continue developing.
In February, FinalHorizon was released as a Sci-Fi mod/expansion for FinalDungeon, offering expanded mechanics, additional Stat/Organism/Class combinations, expanded item lists, as well as a fresh Science Fiction vibe. Also free, FinalHorizon is already at 200 downloads today.

Continued encouragement and positive feedback have only fueled my ambitions, and I've recently contracted a talented artist to provide artwork for FinalHorizon: The Illustrated Edition, which will also include a level 1-5 one shot entitled FinalHorizon: Into the Dark.
This will be the first product from GoodKnightGames that will have a cost to download, as my intent is to produce prints as well, however, FinalHorizon and FinalDungeon will both remain free in their current incarnations, with a minimalist art scheme and no illustrations.

I'd love to offer you both games for free, as the nerd community has given me immense happiness and solidarity over the years. Thank you all for you time, I hope you enjoy!

 I am looking for rules heavy systems!
Posted: 2021-04-09T21:58:49+00:00
Author: /u/Spectral42

My last post got me some great recommendations on systems I should try. I have read;

The first two GURPS 4th Ed books. Mutants and Masterminds Both Delta Green books Stars without numbers Worlds without numbers. And a few others.

I am looking to expand once again, if you’re curious I like to read these books. It’s rare for me to find players outside of dungeons and dragons.

I would love it if you tossed some rules heavy systems at me! Customization makes it all the better. These games don’t have to be main stream but I would love it if they had physical books.

 An Alternative To Rolling Dice
Posted: 2021-04-09T07:50:39+00:00
Author: /u/indeduous

I'm the designer of Blind Luck - The Last Engineer - A Solo RPG, which is out today!

I wanted to use a thematic alternative to rolling dice, so I developed a new system.

In the game, you are the only person able to repair the power station, after the world has been plunged into darkness and is overrun with deadly creatures trying to kill you. Each turn you explore a different part of the town in the dark, trying to find the parts you need to restore power, whilst also trying not to make too much noise.

So, instead of rolling dice for successes, you close your eyes and draw a circle on a sheet filled with numbers. The sum of the numbers within the circle are your results. If they are within a certain range (15-30 etc.) you have a success. If the sum of the numbers is outside the range you have failed and something bad will probably happen.

It's super thematic. Whilst your character is stumbling around in the dark looking for parts, you have your eyes closed hoping for success. It adds a really nice tension to the game and makes results feel less lucky.

You can find out more about the game on HERE

And on Drive Thru RPG: HERE

To celebrate its launch, it currently has 10% off.

Long Games

 Phantasy Star RPG?
Posted: 2021-04-09T19:54:30+00:00
Author: /u/cbooth5

With the release of WWN, I'm starting to get the itch to run a Phantasy Star game. NOT PSO, I'm talking old school Sega Master System. There are a ton of systems out there, and I have done my work of conversions for multiple systems, but I just don't have the time or patience for such in-depth work. So, what would you recommend for a system? I'd prefer something streamlined, but with enough depth for players to customize their characters. NO GURPS or SAVAGE WORLDS; been there, done that! I can appreciate those particular systems, but not what I'm looking for. WWN and SWN look good, and not too crunchy, which is a plus.
