Thread Question: What is the most mind-boggling, horrifying revelation that you or your characters discovered over the course of a game?

What type of superstitions would there be in a Sci-Fi space game?

No.80473824 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Two of the most superstitious people on this planet are sailors and astronauts. Therefore a Sci-Fi space game would naturally have entire spaceship crew refusing to even budge their ship an inch without going through a 12-step ritual for good luck and safety.

Please try to keep arguing to a minimum. Don't respond to bait/drama posts.
And as usual, try and keep it alive, or at least undead.

Yokai - keeping it weird

No.80478788 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
So I want to run a game about Yokai, and I don't want it to devolve into classic fantasy equivalence like all the games publishers half-ass. You know, Oni = Orcs, Gaki = Goblins etc.

Any tips on keeping things off-beat, mystic and weird? I was thinking of running in a system where investigation and mental fortitude/courage are more important than killing everything, like Call of Cthulu. Obviously the charmer above will make a guest appearance.

Is there a better way of moving your allies around mid-combat then grabbing and dragging them by the neck?

Kingmaker 5e?

No.80496755 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
So, am spinning up a Kingmaker conversion for 5e, as the DM. I have the following questions:
-How good is Strongholds and Followers for replacing Pathfinder's kingdom-building rules?
-Do I need Kingdoms and Warfare? From what I've heard it's bad
-Exactly how much work is already done for me- i.e. are there any publicly-available homebrew conversions for encounters and whatnot, or am I on my own until Paizo finally releases the 5e Bestiary?
-Do you guys have any tips for someone running Kingmaker for the first time?

/travgen/ - Traveller General

No.80368502 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Traveller is a classic science fiction system first released in 1977. In its original release it was a general purpose SF system, but a setting was soon developed called The Third Imperium, based on classic space opera tropes of the 60s, 70s, and 80s, with a slight noir tint.

Though it can support a wide range of game types, the classic campaign involves a group of retired veterans tooling around in a spaceship, taking whatever jobs they can find in a desperate bid to stay in business, a la Firefly or Cowboy Bebop. Mercenary campaigns are also common and well-supported.

Fair warning: it is an old-school game with old-school sensibilities; newer players might have issues with it. Grognards will consider this a feature rather than a bug.
