    [Mythras] Free Scenario for M-SPACE: The Triton Incident

    What would happen if the Federation in Star Trek was broke? That’s the basis for two new M-SPACE titles written by Mike Larrimore (author of last years excellent Agony & Ecstasy for Mythras). Instead of a prosperous mega-government, as in Star Trek, the focus in Elevation is a tiny NGO - aptly...

    Can anyone explain Runequest to me?

    I'm interested in getting into it. However there seems to be multiple editions of the game, which I am finding a bit confusing. And what I thought was Runequest (Glorantha) seems to be just one setting of Runequest. Does Runequest refer to the core rules and Glorantha is the flagship setting...

    Differences between Mythras, Chaosium Runequest, Runequest 6E...

    I have always been interested in Glorantha, and in Runequest, but I´ll admit it: I have never even read it, and most of my knowledge comes from the awesome King of Dragon Pass (which my latest replay maybe helped me to become interested again) and having read the Guide to Glorantha some years...

    Let's discuss the new Magic World review

    Hey all, Someone just posted a really good review of Magic World at https://www.rpg.net/reviews/archive/17/17905.phtml. Since the discussion button there doesn't seem to work (I have reported it), I thought we could discuss it here. As those of you who know me are aware I play Magic World a...

    [BRP/HQG/Mythras] Total HP vs Total HP and Hit Locations vs Hit Locations Only

    Been pouring over my books recently, and I've a few (BRP, HQG, Mythras and soon M-Space, based on Mythras). What I'm wondering is, what's the "in game" difference between how these things handle Hit Points, Wounding, and all that? Like, why is it better/worse/different to have a general pool of...

    Any inkling of a new edition of Basic Roleplaying that is closer to Call of Cthulhu, 7th edition? I just want to know before I decide to invest and get invested.

    BRP/D100 Replacement that's Available as Soft or Hard Cover?

    My softcover of the Basic Roleplaying 4th Ed rules bit the dust a while ago and I've got the itch to run a campaign. My style of GMing is to have everything on my tablet in PDF, but have a printed copy of the CRB at the table for my players. So with BRP no longer in print and preowned copies of...

    BRP in 2018: What did you like most?

    [BRP] Oddities in the 1920s

    I have a great time this week coming up with quirky characters using the new mini-supplement Oddities for Odd Soot. My favorite so far is a master sleuth - Anna Stokke - an expert in difference engines. She was raised in a family of petty crime in the poor districts of Glimminge. After being...

    Sell me on OpenQuest.

    Hi fellow gamers, the BRP game OpenQuest seems to do well in various contexts both according to settings and as for the demand. Does it suit any fantasy setting more than others (sword and sorcery, high fantasy, low fantasy, dark fantasy, etc.), and does it have a campaign world or more? Best...

    Sell me on GURPS and BRP.

    Hi fellow gamers, because of a post recently about a possible resurgence of big generic rpg. systems, GURPS and BRP were mentioned by some. I have never played GURPS but know that back in the days (when that is might be in the eyes of the beholder) that was a quite popular rpg. As for BRP: I...

    BRP/ Open Quest / Basic Open: What does an encounter look like?

    I've been grazing through th Open Quest and Renaissance SRD's looking to snag monster stats for an Open Basic game. The way both those SRD's are presented implies that encounters will largely be with monsters much like in D&D: "you enter a 10' by 10' room, a minotaur is guarding a chest."...
