    💀 Necro Anyone Still Playing Silhouette?

    Konnichi wa, campers. I was looking through the Banzaidyne III files the other day, and I was reminded of just how long it’s been since I’ve really done anything with it. I reformatted the pages a few years ago to throw out the Threat Values and generally clean things up, but nothing since...

    Microlite Heavy Gear...

    So, inspired by digital_shades I threw together my own page and a half rules light mecha game mixing digital_shades, Technoir and Silhouette. I'm missing Target numbers, which I might just make and opposed roll. I'm not sure everything makes sense, I'll reread it tomorrow morning after sleep and...

    A Questions about Heavy Gear (fluff)

    While transposing Heavy Gear rules to d6 I came across some stuff that I saw before but never really made me stop and think. Now I'm stopping and thinking. Namely the focus on natural sciences. The archetypes include archeologist, field scientist and skills focussing on geology. Now I'm all...

    [SilCore] Anyone used the optional Social combat rules?

    I was looking back through SilCore and noticed the optional social combat. I was wondering if anyone had used it and how it worked for you?

    Sihouette Core vs Deluxe Silhouette Core

    Could someone tell me the differences between editions? I am inclined to grab a copy of the former for dirt cheap.. As a sidenote, I loved you DP9. You were the best. I miss you......

    [d6] Heavy Gear

    I've been looking back at my Heavy Gear RPG collection (still one of my favorite sets, despite having never played it) and I realized that d6 might make an excellent system for the Terra Nova setting. The rules are very similar (d6 based, degrees of damage is measured as multiples over the...

    [Star Trek] Core Command: Final Frontier

    Konnichi wa, campers. Several years ago, Dream Pod 9 launched a new RPG to go along with their SilCORE rules called CORE Command. The intention was to create a galaxies-spanning setting along the lines of Lensman or the Andromeda TV series, but the execution was lousy and it suffered a quick...

    [Heavy Gear 2nd Ed] Book recommendations.

    Hey there. I have this "earworm" idea for a HG game, so I'm drawing up a wish list of books to round out what I already have and I'd like some advice on which books to get. I will be running in non-SilCORE 2nd edition but I know there wasn't much difference on the Silhouette side of things...

    [Sell Me/Unsell Me] Silhouette

    In my ongoing search for more or less generic systems to use in one of a bunch of potential SF games I have coming up, as I've mentioned in the past I'm running an intermittent campaign using one setting and storyline and a bunch of different systems to get an idea whether they're good fits for...

    [Eclipse Phase] SiliCORE conversion

    I really love the setting but I have never been fond of percentile systems. During the holiday, I decide to do a conversion of Eclipse Phase to the DP9 SiliCORE system which I always found particularly elegant. There is a lot of similarities in the rule which made it that much earlier. Also...

    Robotech hack for Silhouette

    Robotech was the first anime series I saw, the second mecha universe I saw and one of the first RPG's I played, following d6 Star Wars and 2nd edition D&D. It's a feat of editing that three unrelated anime series were made into a mostly coherent story (I'm not much of a Macross purist.) The...

    [Heavy Gear - The RPG] Am I The Only One Left?

    Konnichi wa, campers. I figured I'd post this here since there are actual RPG players on this board. :) It may well be time to shelve it once and for all. The game has been dead for years, even the Silhouette CORE version (DP9's inventory clearance sale only confirms that), and I certainly...

    Slimming down CthulhuTech (damn you martian_bob!)

    WARNING: If you don't like CthulhuTech or its core rules then keep on moving. This isn't the thread you're looking for. If you don't like the Ctech rules, but have some constructive thoughts on how to fix them, then stay a while. martian bob's thread where he puts on a blindfold and smokes a...

    Javascript Calculator of Dice Probabilities for Silhouette

    I've coded a probability calculator for use with DP9's Silhouette engine in javascript. I'm calling it SilProb. It's fairly malleable, and works by creating a table of dice and possible outcomes and then walking through it based on a set of defined rules. I'm not a particularly good...

    [Silhouette] Psionics System?

    A while back someone on this board pointed me to a homebrewed psionics system they had developed for Silhouette. As I am intending to start a generic space opera game in the near future and one of the system I was considering using is silhouette I was wondering if anybody could point me to this...

    Tribe 8 question

    Remember this former darling? Anyhow, I used to own the hardcover but sold it a few years ago--but now I want it back again! I'm mainly interested in setting material, and I purchased The Vimary Sourcebook and Into the Outlands. I am mulling over either the original rulebook or the 2nd edition...

    When I say Silhouette, you say…

    Over 100 votes on the Cinematic Unisystem question, so time for the next one. There's one more i want to post after this one. Thanks everyone for your patience in playing along with this. Silhouette system. You can certainly say more after you've come up with your one word. (Just in case...

    [Heavy Gear] a request to the powers that be.

    Make the next edition of Heavy Gear (the RPG) in full color. I was just looking through my copies of the HG art books and to this day the artwork makes my jaw drop. Ghislain was a master at making color artwork look good in grayscale but nothing beats seeing it in color. I liked it so much I...

    Heavy Gear 4 edition

    Back in late summer of '08 SJG and DP9 said they were teaming up to put out Heavy Gear 4th edition. I was wondering if there has been anymore news on this front? http://www.heavygearrpg.com/
