    Games with intra-party relationship generators?

    Curious as to what games people have found that include rules for generating relationships between the PC's. I know about some of the PbtA type "Bonds", and games like Fate that encourage/require players to so this, but am interested in what other games have done.

    What Games have Excellent Rules/Support for Relationships?

    Riffing off the Blue Rose thread... A number of people have mentioned a miss-match between the supposed emphasis of Blue Rose (relationships) and the actual rules provided (which favored killing stuff and gaining more powerful.) What games or systems have excellent support for relationships...

    [necro][FATE] I have a random relationship table, now what?

    It occurred to me today that FATE doesn't really have a lot of random generation tables.

My problem is that I've been doing it all by hand with traditional pnp and while it's good for shaping I'm getting tired of messy editing. Anyway I recall seeing several recommendations...

    Best Example of Social Dynamic/ Relationship Maps in RPGs

    After seeing the relationship map in a Vampire: The Masquerade book in the 90s, my friend began using it in his work as an investigator for social services. He'd map out the various players in a dysfunctional family network, their relationship to each other and motives/agenda/etc between them...

    Sorceror-style relationship maps, how do you use them?

    Like it says, and if one of our kind narrativist brethren could describe Sorceror-style relationship maps for the uninitiated I would be most grateful... Ideally tips on how to use them as a general technique, rather than just in Sorceror, would be most useful. Oh, and you, you about to post...
