Partly to have an excuse to playtest the updated version of my Mass Effect hack of Diaspora, I'm creating this thread to gauge interest in getting some playtesters of the new material I'm adding to it.
The hack is only about 75% complete at the moment, but if you are interested in having an...
Don't often come to VGO, but I thought I'd just pop in to mention that the latest version of Minecraft just went live.
I know many of the Mincrafters on here probably run the weekly updates, but still... Enjoy!
-EDIT- Now up to 1.2.2
Quick bug fixes obviously.
We have a duplicate set of threads in TRO:
Could be good practice for some nice new shiny Mod.
There's been a few threads recently about Eclipse Phase and Transhumanisim, and it got me thinking. I liked the ideas behind Eclipse Fate, and have been checking the Strands of Fate for Eclipse Phase thread occasionally, so I've decided to muck around with Diaspora again.
I'd definitely like...
I have recently caught up on both of these great TV series. I have particularly enjoyed the humour in the writing of both, and am glad to being up to date and able to watch the new seasons.
So I turn to the mediaphiles of Other Media for suggestions of other spy/action/heist TV series that can...
I just noticed that they're back. Thankyou!
This is a welcome change.
On a related note, what are the admin staff general stance on the introduction of some additional smilies? I know that it has been mentioned from time to time that some posters would like a few more options.
I'm giving some thought to running a supers game using a varying Fate dice mechanic, namely exploding dice.
Using a d10:
1-3 represents -1;
4-6 represents 0;
7-9 represents +1;
Lastly, 10s are a +1 and re-roll.
Its been a long time since I've done extensive probability work, so I'm hoping...
It is probably a side effect of the software update, but the links from the Reviews Browser page aren't working. They 404.
This is the link attached to each letter:
Well, I've been tinkering with Strands, so I thought I'd put some stuff together in its own thread.
Feel free to add to it yourselves.
Strands of MASS EFFECT
Campaign Premise: Conversion of the Mass Effect RPG video game to Strands of Fate.
Campaign's Power Level: Mythic...
So I've almost finished writing up a Fate based game for Magic: The Gathering using the Diaspora Platoon mini-game as inspiration. I'll probably have it done by the weekend, so I'd like to find some players who'll be able to give it a test drive.
If you reply to the thread, or PM me, I'll send...
I've been experimenting with making an unusual map, and I thought I'd post my example of a Tri-hexa-flexagon. That is: a hexagon shaped model with three distinct states (and by extension 6 possible unique faces).
The model is made using a printout of the design and basic paper-crafting tools...
I've been tinkering around with FATE again, planning to eventually run a cyberpunk themed campaign. In doing so, I've created a combination "world building" / "beginning and end of session" mini-game based on some of the ideas from the cluster creation mini-game from Diaspora. In the cluster...
So I've been thinking about Diaspora, and it occurred to me that it may be the system to hack for Mass Effect. Aspects and stunts seem a good way to model the game's biotic and tech powers without going overboard with the rules. Whilst a "softer" approach than the default Diaspora, there's...
I am trying to incorporate some accurate and relevant information into a military themed RPG campaign document, and not being a member of the military, I have no real idea how a few things fit in the picture. So I am appealing to the wider RPG.net who have some direct experience translating for...
