    🎨 Creative Chuubo's: The Eightfold Pathos

    The Eightfold Pathos Introduction You will never find someone who’s a relatively experienced angel. Angels come in two varieties: ancient ones which may precede the creation of Creation, and new ones trying to prove their worth. At the moment, one of the latter, named Coral, was waiting in a...

    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 - Help with genres

    A while ago I purchased a copy of Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine, intrigued by what I was hearing about it. I've been reading it for a while, trying to get the hang of how everything works, and while I think I'm understanding the resolution system and the whole narrative arc thing...

    [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] Action Academy Campaign

    Near the moderately-sized town of Elysian Heights, in a world very much like our own, can be found the Arcadian Academy. Founded by the superhero known as the Arcadian on the twenty-fifth anniversary of his first victory, the Academy seeks to teach young superheroes not just how to use their...

    [Chuubo] A Cheesy Example of how everything in Chuubo’s Works

    When discussions of Chuubo's come up, I see a lot of threads that say "I don't understand Bonds," or "I don't understand Genre." Since I find examples help me, I decided to write up a bunch to explain different mechanics of the game. I figure at some point I'll move this to the Chuubo Wiki or...

    Chuubo's Agile Wish-Granting Methodology: The Mystery, Scrum

    [Chuubo] Chuubostuck - Contrapposto Crusade

    Alright, so, for the first time in a year or so, I’m going to try my hand at HGing again. And, after rereading the entirety of Homestuck, participating in Aincumis’s Chuubostuck game, and revisiting my last abortive attempt to try a Homestuck PbP… God help me…. … Guys, I want to run...

    [Interest] Chuuboo's The Legendary 139

    So this is out now. Still reading it of course, but I want to judge interest for Gothic or Immersive game using the supplement. Anybody game? I'd prefer a real time game, IRC or Skype or whatever, but I know PBP is how it usually goes here. If anybody wants to be HG, by all means be my guest...

    [Chuubo's] Always Coming Home

    Has anyone else here read both Jenna Moran's RPG Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine and Ursula Le Guin's "archaeology of the future" Always Coming Home? It seems to me that Always Coming Home is about as close to an RPG setting book as a literary work that is not an RPG setting book can...

    [Chuubo][Exalted] Chubxalted: Skycroft version.

    So this is a spinoff of an earlier thread started by Cryptico about making an Chuubo hack for Exalted, and I did a bit of theorycrafting of my own in there. Rand Brittain suggested coming up with custom Arcs and, well, that's what I have been doing. Here's what I have got so far...

    [Chuubo] Advice on Running Chuubo's

    I've been in a couple Chuubo games now and am starting to get the hang of playing the thing, but I still have no idea how to run this beast. The beginning part seems just like any other RPG, you get a good pitch ("we're all misfit students at Horizon School", "we're unemployed gods looking for...

    [Chuubo's] It's my birthday, help me stat Winnie-the-Pooh and friends

    Yes yes, today is my natal anniversary, another trip round the daystar, and as is customary I am begging RPGnet for something. In a moment of weakness, I declared that I would run a one-shot game of Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine set in the Pooh-verse at a convention I'm attending this...

    [Chuubo's] Banner Saga

    So....uhm...I've been playing too much of The Banner Saga, and I got a successful playthrough of The Banner Saga 2. I'm also currently on a Chuubo's kick (finding a Chuubo's game on here and seeing how FrivYeti works on things probably has played no small part in my Chuubo's obsession.. :D...

    Chuubo's Meets VtM

    Okay, so...weird thread title, I know. And sorry if this has been asked before! My gaming group has expressed a peculiar interest; they'd like the Chuubo's system to be modified to let them play in the setting of Vampire: the Masquerade. They've always wanted to play VtM without any dice but...

    Bigger-picture advice: How to structure a worldbook?

    So I've been writing a setting/worldbook run on Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine, set in an AU of the Homestuck universe. (See the link in my signature.) Since this book is an expansion for an existing system, I don't need to worry about the nitty-gritty of exactly how stats, health...

    [Chuubo's Recruitment] Horizon School Open Enrollment

    Hey everybody, there was a bit of interest in Chuubo's in the meta-thread, and I've been wanting to revive a Chuubo's game that I ran on here a little while ago. Here's the old IC thread, and here's the game wiki. Now, when I ran out of steam, we were down to three players, so I'm inviting old...

    [Chuubo's] One question I can't figure out the answer to...

    If a character completes an arc, and then moves to another arc, does s/he keep the abilities of the previous arc? Or does the PC's "story" start over again, effectively?
