    [3:16] Your fluff

    So, I’m gearing up to run a game of 3:16 at Rpol and I’m curious about other people’s fluff for their games, such as ship naming conventions (there was a thread about this before, but I couldn't find it). For example, regarding planet names, I was thinking of dividing groups of planets into...

    [3:16] Questions about Vehicles and Bombs

    We're getting close to starting to see vehicles and bombs come into play. So before my players get promoted, I figured I should clear some stuff up. Sorry if these questions have totally obvious answers. Vehicles: 1. I assume the players who aren't piloting but still inside the Drop Ship or...

    [3:16] More options to extend campaign play

    I've been brainstorming ideas to extend campaign 'life' for 3:16. Specializations: (not to be confused with the Specialists options created by someone else, however, they are compatible). Specializations are ranked Specialty, Expertise, & Mastery. They can only be upgraded in that order. 1)...

    [3:16] Late Campaign Play

    I'm fairly new to RPGs and I've never actually had a long running campaign, so this may seem like a silly question. While I think 3:16 is pretty great and easy to understand/run/play, even for relative novices, I'm having a little trouble imagining what a high level campaign would look like. A...

    [3:16] Ideas For a Fantasy Version

    Okay, so I've been thinking I'd love to run a fantasy game but I don't want to run anything but 3:16. So I decided to spitball some ideas. Now, I know there's going to be Carnage amongst the Tribes, but I'm thinking more of the traditional "Adventuring Party" type fantasy. So here's just a...

    3:16 fansite launched

    I've launched a new fansite for Gregor Hutton's popular 3:16 roleplaying game, called Carnage Amongst The Web. On the site players and GMs can find all kinds of inspiration that they can use in their 3:16 games. I play the game and found it frustrating that fanwritten material for 3:16 is...

    [3:16] How would you resolve these cases?

    Just had my first session a few nights ago. A blast, as was expected. A couple of things need clarification, though: 1) Infiltrator aliens? I modified the syrens so that they could take any form, and especially the forms of the PC's loved ones. At one point, though, they took on the form of...

    [3:16] Carnage Amongst the Stars

    I ran my first game of 3:16 last Thursday and, although we didn't get to finish the second planet, it was a great session. Here, then, is a quick Actual Play account of our first time with the game. This may very well be continued if we have a second session later this week, in which case I'll...
