    [Other Worlds] Eclipse Phase

    Since I got into Eclipse Phase I have been looking for an alternate light system. I tried to do a Savage Worlds conversion, but it ended up being almost as complex as EP system, although the thing that bothered me the most got a little bit easier: changing bodies. I also looked for a PbtA hack...

    Other Worlds RPG. Some thoughts and questions

    Other worlds I first read other worlds a couple of years of years ago. Like most of us I guess, I come from a 'traditional' role-playing background and some of the differences in the way other worlds plays kept me from experimenting with it. But I found it a very interesting read and it has...

    [Other Worlds] Just Bought It

    As a big fan of HeroQuest 2e I purchased Other Worlds! Not so much for the shared Narrative control stuff (not my thing) but just what a cool system it is for running anything. What have people done with it? What are some of the things to keep in mind when using it? Why isn't anything happening...

    [Interest/Recruitment]Fading Suns Epic with stripped down Other Worlds rules

    I fancy running a Fading Suns epic game since I haven't done one for ages (I going to run one for my meatgroup too when we finish up our current Shadowrun game soon, but want to scratch that itch now). I've become enamoured of stripped down, rules light games, so rather than use the FS rules, I...

    Other Worlds: Glorantha

    I have the mammoth GtG books, and was thinking which system to use for them. I have HQ somewhere, but it never really clicked with me - too few ability things, or too wide a focus on them, or a mixture of both, I think. I like RQ, but with RQ6 being a stand alone thing, I want something that...

    [Contrast and compare] Other Worlds and Heroquest 2e/Heroquest Glorantha

    Hi all, Can anyone talk to me about those two game engines? I read a bit about them and right now i am fascinated. It seems to me that one of these 2 games could very well be perfectly suited for one of my rpg groups (this group is: very focused on roleplay, not much dice throwing per session...

    What happened to the Otherworlds KS?

    I just got this on the mail today: "This is a message from Kickstarter’s Integrity team. We're writing to inform you that a project you backed, Otherworlds the Limitless Tabletop RPG, is the subject of an intellectual property dispute. The project has been removed from public view until the...

    What's out there for percentile systems?

    So what is out there in terms of percentile systems? I really like the idea of having your ability to do something expressed in a percentage, that level of transparency is very appealing. I know a little about BRP (in the form of Magic World, RQ6, and Elric!), but beyond what's good in the...

    HeroQuest 2 vs. Fate Core vs. FAE... Fight!

    I like them all. Indeed, they're all struggling for dominance in my pile of 'best RPGs ever!' I'm a big fan of the way they all handle the dramatic structure of film and fiction, and shy away from the resource management and fiddly rules of other systems. I start off any session by thinking...

    My Kids first rpg game. (Simplified Other Worlds)

    Yesterday (Sunday) I started an Other Worlds’ campaign. We had a lot of fun for around 3-4 hours and as in a log and ancient tradition, the first session was totally consumed by characters creations. :-) I have three players my son André (age 10), my daughter Aurora (age 8) and my wife Giò (age...

    WHy don't more percentile based systems....

    Just roll d100 and add the skill % for opposed rolls? You know, instead of all the odd ways many seem to have done it, with degrees of success/failure, crit v uber crit v failure v super failure etc etc? I just started reading Hackmaster Basic and saw this and thought "wtf have no other...

    Fantasy/Generic Rules That Use Scene Resolution Not Action?

    How well does HeroQuest actually play?

    HQ fascinates me on a number of levels. It is both innovative and sometimes frustrating just to read. I love how everything basically works off one mechanic… yet that mechanic is baffling from a probability standpoint. Seriously, can you quickly estimate the odds of a 19w2 beating a 2w4? I'm not...

    Open licence Heroquest alternative?

    Dear friends, I really enjoy the style and ethos of the Heroquest/Other Worlds rules paradigm. The thing is, I am looking for an open licence/creative commons alternative to both. I'd like to find a generic game with: - Freeform character creation - Optional templates/HQ-style keywords -...

    [Other Worlds] Some musing

    Hi all, Other Worlds is a great game and I can only recommand it. The writting, layout and pictures are great. A perfect example of a game book and I wish it would be available as Epub as well. Other worlds uses normally a one roll conflict resolution system, where the winning side either gains...

    Are there any games that resolve combat in one round?

    The standard RPG tends to deal with combat on a blow-by-blow basis, taking place over several rounds. Are there any games that, in one "round", tell you who won, what the consequences were, and so forth? If so, can you describe how it works? And is the system enjoyable to you?

    [Other Worlds] Character Editor

    Following the [Other Worlds] 1001 templates thread, I have finally found some time to code up a character editor for the Other Worlds system and get it packaged up. The app is capable of pulling down the templates put together by Enlightened. Most of them are pulled down correctly. The editor...

    [Other Worlds] Critique a few Star Trek templates...

    This is for a specific character in a PbP game. The character is a female Cardassian Starfleet captain in command of a Galaxy class refit. The year is 2413, and in my time line, Cardassia changed its ways drastically after the war and became a Fedaration planet in 2398. The character was the...
