    [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] 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...

    🎨 Creative [Chuubo's] Open Until Midnight - New campaign and horror genre

    I've been muddling around since I finished The New Beginnings Job Agency, trying to decide what the next Chuubo's project I was going to do is. After a really weird series of thoughts, I have decided. I hope you enjoy this process as I work through it... At the end of a small alley in the back...

    [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...

    [Chuubo's] Simple overview of the mechanics?

    I've recently started reading Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine. It looks like an interesting RPG engine / setting, but the writing seems to be all over the place. The rules seem to be jumbled up with the description of the world and some examples - I can't seem to wrap my head around...

    [Chuubo] Celestial Happenings

    My two daughters are still relatively young for roleplaying (10 and 7), but they roleplay all the time. It's funny how when they play with friends the most used word of all time is "pretend", which preludes every sentence. "Pretend I am laughing." "Pretend you don't see me." "Pretend you tell me...

    [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...

    Yes yes, today is my natal anniversary, another trip round the daystar, and as is customary I am begging RPGnet for something.
