 Easy Cyberpunk Systems?
Posted: 2022-10-04T23:29:20+00:00
Author: /u/Loberzim

I want to GM a cyberpunk RPG so I tried getting into Cyberpunk Red, but after reading the character sheet and character creation I just gave up, it was too much, is there an easier Cyberpunk system that isn't too narrative? I want something like Traveller or a D20 system.

Could be combat related, designed to encourage role play, etc.

 Do you share the costs of running RPG with your players?

Basically, do you ask them to contribute with any value for the acquisition of supplements and other things?

 What are some ttrpgs similar to dnd with a darker/grittier setting?

Plan on making a Dark Souls/Witcher inspired campaign but I didn't think dnd really fit what I'm going for unless I added a lot of homebrew. Any suggestions for alternative ttrpgs?

 Extremely new to RPGs - Have a question on leveling up
Posted: 2022-10-05T06:26:35+00:00
Author: /u/redhilleagle

What's the point in leveling up? I mean, what does it do to your character?

I've always assumed it make you stronger / better at skills, allows you to maybe carry more stuff, but doesn't that just make the game "easier"?

I need to understand. The RPG community has been great so far, and I know you won't let me down here!

 What’s the general consensus on Old-School Essentials Advanced Fantasy?

Author: /u/Diehumancultleader

Do you feel it is an overall improvement on the AD&D ruleset it tries to revamp, how and why do you feel that way, and is it as quality as Old-School Essentials Classic Fantasy?

What do you think is the best horror rpg? And why is that your favorite? What does it do better than other horror rpgs?

If you have honorable mentions or know of good horror games that aren’t sci fi share those as well!

 What games are the best for oneshots? (any genre is fine)
Posted: 2022-10-05T07:39:41+00:00
Author: /u/CrimsonEclipse18

Wanna run some oneshots so I'm looking for games that will best support one shot games. Players will be a mix of semi regular players and complete noobs, so less crunchy systems will be preferable. Thanks a lot.

Edit: Already checked out Ten Candles and Dread. Great games, but I want to expand my horizons a bit.

 Favourite Campaign Management Tools?

For the GMs out there - what tools do you like best for campaign management? System neutral is preferred but feel free to mention anything. I include mapmaking programs in this consideration.

 Should I play cyberpunk 2077?
Posted: 2022-10-04T21:18:45+00:00
Author: /u/ASARIO1

Some time ago a friend told me to play cyberpunk 2020. In the end the idea never took off.

But now that I saw the Edgerunners anime I would like to try a cyberpunk themed RPG.

My group is made up of people who roleplay very well but have a hard time with the mechanics and only play DND.

So knowing that, what would be the best system? Cyberpunk 2020? Shadowrun?
