    IC [Chuubo/Horizon] The Unbearable Legacies of Forsyth

    A Prologue From the Desk of John Simony ~I am afraid. All we had were rumors and incidents: The removal of bodies, the breaking of decorum, the association with the X Street Unfriendlies, the servitude of Anfisa Maksimova, the disastrous duel with the Angel Carmichael. All unfortunate, none...

    Can anyone explain to me how to play Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-granting Engine?

    I've read a number of threads about the game now, including the one about Conan that was very eye-opening - as well as the two reviews on this site. I've also got the game in ebook form from drivethrurpg. But despite all that, I keep returning to it every year or so, and don't seem to get any...

    [Interest/Chuubo]Unbearable Legacies of Forsyth: A Horizon Gothic Campaign

    I'm gauging interest and characters for a game of creepy manors and unbearable inheritances. This will be a Gothic Campaign, so Shared (Re)Actions, Slice of Life, and Obsessive Actions are the XP Actions available on top of anything the group can unanimously agree upon. This will be a miraculous...

    [Chuubo's] New Campaign: The Sun's Court:ship

    So, with Axiom Seeds temporarily locked while Creative Open gets moved, I can't update and finish up over there. So it's time to move straight to my second project. This one kind of makes the last one look like a good plan. Welcome to The Sun's Court:ship The world is not what it once was...

    🎨 Creative [Chuubo's] My homemade CMWGE setting

    I really like Town, the Chuubo's Marvellous Wish-Granting Engine default setting, but also, I like creating my own settings and I like having writing prompts. So I'm going to work through the rulebook, and use the various arcs and things as prompts to create a new setting. And I'm going to...

    [Chuubo] Adventure Archaeologists of Horizon School in the Amazing Outside?

    Ever since the Chuubo and the Tower of the Elephant, I've been trying to come up with a good campaign frame for a adventurous Chuubo mortal game. Inspired by the "Last Ship Out" example of play, I thought that a game revolving around exploring the multitude of drowned, frozen or lost worlds...

    [Chuubo] Conan's Marvelous Tower of the Elephant

    ...in which our author rambles and preambles. I've been looking over Chuubo and it has occurred to me that I don't really understand what's going on. It has also occurred to me that it might be informative and entertaining to take an existing story and try to disassemble it into its component...

    "Once upon a time, witch and a glassmaker made a dragon out of glass and taught it to hate the world. It raged and it would have destroyed everything; only, it shattered, instead.

    [Interest] [Chuubo] The Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine RPG Halloween Special

    I've been seeing Halloween candy on the shelves for at least a month, and I'm in the mood to be in a Chuubo's game again. But I don't want to do an enormous amount of work, so I figured a ready-made quick adventure with pre-gens would work. The adventure, for those who are interested, is here...

    My birthday passed exactly a month ago, but I figure going on hospice this week is a good enough excuse to summon the knowledge and creativity of TRO. (If you are curious to my condition, esophageal cancer, you can read about it in a post I wrote last year here...

    [Chuubo] Grigori's Marvelous Character Statting Project

    As I had mentioned here, I've been brewing up a personal project: To explore the 24 canonical Arcs of Chuubo's Marvelous Wish Granting Engine, by writing up one existing fictional character for each. It's helping me understand how the Arcs fit together mechanically, how they fit to characters...

    [Chuubo] Arc Assignment Brainstorming

    So, I've been toying with a project idea for a while now: Statting existing fictional characters for Chuubo's Miraculous Wish Granting Engine, one for each canonical arc. I thought it'd be a good way of really working out how the mechanics can translate archetypes, as the freeform nature of...
