    🎨 Creative [Stars Without Number Revised/Other Dust] Creating a swedish wasteland

    I've had the good fortune to wrangle together a second group of players and we recently sat down and discussed (over Discord) what we wanted to play. It was a really good discussion and we finally reached consensus: we're going to be playing a post apocalyptic sandbox. The ruleset will be Other...

    [Create-a-Setting] Random-seeming power ritusls

    Wonderworkers come in all shapes and sizes, from a farmer who uses his power to ward weeds and pests from his fields to the wise woman with her various potions to the mason with the strength of a thousand men. But they all have one thing in common: they need to perform certain actions to gather...

    [Create-a-Setting] Real Life Super Heroes are Super!

    We all know about the various real life super heroes, people who use the thematics of the superhero to draw attention to their causes while they work as community activists, neighbourhood cleanup, and in rare cases, yes, crime fighters, using their semi-anonymous nature to both draw attention...

    Mash another genre into your favorite setting

    We have a fantastic thread about throwing your favorite setting ...IN SPACE , so rather then the future I think we should look at twisted worlds where our favorite settings mash with something else! 1) The train rumbled away. Riki and the boys thought themselves free. They were home. Back on...

    A thread for random game ideas we'll never use

    ...but maybe someone can. I was thinking of my "post-movies" personal Star Wars today for the heck of it. While doing so, I realized that the end of Empire really is a great fodder for gaming. This lead me to Lando's Seven The Boss? Lando Calrissean, the coolest cat in the galaxy The Muscle...

    [Create-a-setting] Biological High fantasy

    Long ago we used to have these "create-a-setting" threads, one user would suggest an idea and others would add to it in the subsequent posts. Each post adds one or more ideas or comments without contradicting previous posters. I want to try something like this again. For some time an idea has...

    [40k] Let's make a Hive

    Several people in the "What 40k books should they make?" thread expressed interest in a book detailing a Hive. They're never going to make this book, you know. But that doesn't mean we can't. Let's start with the basics, what do we know are universal or just very common attributes of most...

    [Create-A-Setting] Post Human Warriors (Madoka + Crysis + DX + Prototype mashup)

    "This isn't a war ordinary humans can win." There may be some spoilers here. The inspiration for this was basically a mashup trailer between Madoka and Crysis 2, here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfA1SoPSWC8 I thought it was hilarious, so it caused wheels to turn. So you're a teenage girl...

    Create a game through Spoilers part II: the New Edition!

    OK, I know that the newest edition of the game called BARK is coming soon, and I know some of you folks are playtesters. So, I've got to ask: what's in the new edition? In particular: -is it true they've changed the name back to Exodus? -what changes have they made to the universe this time...

    Bride of Son of Campaigns You Want To Run

    I'd like to follow a fine tradition of "Campaigns You Want To Run" threads, since (unless I'm mistaken) there isn't one already on the go. So, campaigns you will run, might run, or can never run. Here are some of mine: Masks of the Red: Mundane detectives investigate the local effects of a...

    Your little orphan ideas

    you know, those game ideas and concepts that, while they have a place in your heart, you know you'll never get around to doing or playing. Personally, I've wanted to do an old school OWoD necromancer war for ages. Giovanni, Harbringers, wraiths, euthanatos--get all the spooky folk and show them...

    [Create a Setting] The Fate of the World is in the Hands of Teenage Mecha Pilots

    Time for a good old fashioned "create a setting" thread! Standard rules apply: add one detail, and don't contradict the previous posts. For starters: It has been 16 years since we first detected the approaching Enemy. 16 years since we reverse-engineered Enemy technology to build defenses...

    [Create a Setting] Star-Norse!!

    (yes, two exclamation marks seemed...warranted.) Listen to me, my brothers! Let me tell you that it is the end of the galaxy, and a dark time for all. We were once a proud and august people, the worlds of the Middle Alliance. We and the Svelgar and the Alph, all under the protection of the...

    [Riff] The Gothic Shadowrunners Of Rome.

    Here's an insane premise for you. In Imperial Rome, magic renews itself, transforming the world (in much the fashion of Shadowrun - suddenly, people are changed, and weirdness awakens). The "colors" - the huge and influential fan clubs of the Circus Maximus - capitalise on the changes, getting...

    Games you've always wanted to run but don't think you can pull off

    Hi, this thread is to share all those great game ideas you've had and wanted to run, even if you realize in practice you have no idea how to pull it off or it's just too ambitious, or you haven't had the right group. My idea? I've long wanted to do a Dark Heresy game. The setup would be as...

    [setting riff] the Barter Clade

    Money isn't evil. Money is worse than evil - it is gauche, the sign of an unsophisticate. That's 'unsophisticate', not 'unsoph' - abbreviance was last week's trend. Money is what is used by people who are too low upon the social tree to afford the services of the Barter Clade. We of the Clade...

    [Create-a-Setting] We can go there!

    Recently, a fringe scientist managed to get funding from a very wealthy eccentric, and has discovered a way into another space, drastically unlike our own. It seems to consist entirely of tunnels of atmosphere, which is not air, running through an immeasurable-so-far mass of fluid, which is not...

    [Create-A-Setting]Documentorium

    The year is 2055. Singularity has been reached, in the form of a self-modifying city-sized computer in the Atlantic that no longer can comprehend human existence even to follow the Three Laws. Unfortunately, we've been left behind, but with enough Stuff to keep us well fed and entertained for...
