    [Savage Worlds + Cortex Prime] Savage Cortex?

    I thought I had seen something of the nature of a mash-up between these two systems floating around the internet, but I cannot seem to find it. Has anyone else seen something similar around, or am I as crazy as I think I am and will need to build it myself?:eek: EDIT - It turns out there...

    Picking and Choosing from the D100 Fantasy Buffet.

    The GM in my current game group needs to take a break for a few weeks for various reasons. This is being planned though the break will happen in a couple months. We are looking to wrap up our current D&D 5e story arc - after which, I have volunteered to run RuneQuest/D100 for our game group...

    [Battletech] Making a better Mechwarrior

    The group I'm in have gotten to grumbling on needing some big stompy robot action lately, and I have to agree. I do seem to have the most experience with the setting and most of the books so it'll likely fall on me to run. The problem is that the Battletech rules are easy enough, Mechwarrior...

    [World/Chronicles of Darkness] Rules-light replacement systems, and support for weirder fatsplats/fansplats.

    This is something I've been pondering for a while, and I've probably posted about it before: I really want to find/make/hack a lighter system to use in place with the WoD or CofD games in place of Storytell[er|ing]. Something that's a little more purpose-built than a generic urban fantasy...

    Using games for settings other than the ones they were intended?

    I was wondering if anyone has any experience using rules systems for settings other than the ones that are baked into the book? Some games (I was specifically thinking of 7th Sea) have their setting seemingly intrinsic to the rules but I'm sure SOMEONE has hacked it out, flufffed it away, or...

    [Numenera, Strange, Cypher] Dumping the d20.

    I heard that No Thank you, Evil, was basically the Cypher system with a d6 instead of a d20. I also heard that real reason one has to multiply by three is so that a d20 can be used for resolution. More important than the die itself, is the fact that it produces a flat result as compared to a...

    [DRYH] Why I love the resolution mechanism and think that I would be a fine for many games

    Hi all, you all know that DRYH is just brilliant and for my part I really like how the resolution works. Successes and dominance are great. First of all it gives you two results with one roll. You get successes and dominance, where dominance is more random then successes. This results in: yes...

    Dresden Files (the game) without Dresden Files (the setting)

    Elsethread, there was some discussion about using the Dresden Files RPG for urban fantasy without the actual Dresden Files setting, but someone said that the setting was too baked into the rules to easily remove. I was one of the proponents of using the system while dropping the setting, so that...

    [Endless: Fantasy Tactics] Expanding it into an actual RPG

    For those that don't know, Endless: Fantasy Tactics is a grid-based tactical miniatures game that takes inspiration from Final Fantasy Tactics about as blatantly as Legacy: War of Ages "took inspiration" from Highlander. But as it happens, FFT is one of my favorite games in the history of ever...

    [Feng Shui] Feng Shui Variants

    Over on the thread concerning the return of Feng Shui, people were talking about changes they'd like Atlas and Atomic Overmind to make to the game. During the discussion, TrippyHippy and Asclepios were talking about alternate stat schemes for the game, and Asclepios mentioned a house-ruled...

    [WFRP 2nd Ed] Using the system without careers?

    Long story short, I have a homebrew setting I've been working on and off for a while (you can see some of the genesis here, though it's developed a lot since then), and I like the hacked WFRP system I have, but I don't know that the career system would work as well with the new setting I have...

    This may be relevant to your interests. I hope stretch goals include more settings.

    [A Dirty World] - Useable for other genres?

    I recently became a big fan of the ORE system, especially as found in REIGN. I've had a lot of fun playing it, but occasionally I wish that there was a "generic" version of the system that I could use for whatever game I want to play. Then I read "A Dirty World" (the noir version of the...

    HACKING/MODDING SAVAGE WORLDS: What have you done?

    So SW is a fairly simple/straightforward game. Some people have more levels of complexity other dont. I for one never liked that attributes mostly work for buying skills cheaper ( mostly), and I have always wanted them to matter more. I once considered dropping the wild dice and just having...

    [Spinoff] What System Would You Use for Rifts?

    This is NOT a sell me thread. I was just reading the Palladium thread, and found myself wondering how different RPG.net members would do it. So let's say, hypothetically, you were going to run Rifts, but with another established system that isn't Palladium's. Which one would you choose, and...

    My Mass Effect/Traveller Hack

    No, for once this isn't a "recommend me a system" thread. I found a system (Mongoose Traveller), I liked it, and now I think I'm most of the way through a quick'n'dirty conversion. Since a glance at the "mass effect" tag shows something like three or four threads asking for a system to every...

    Adapting SW Saga Edition to Run Mass Effect

    The release of the final game has inspired me to consider a Mass Effect game. Towards that end I was thinking of a system. Our group has enjoyed SW Saga edition so that was the first thing that came to mind (given the obvious similarities between Mass Effect and the KotOR games). Towards that...

    Mass Effect in Strange FATE, how would you handle the mechanics?

    So, this idea's been sitting in my skull as of late, what with having recently played ME3. It makes me want to do something in that universe. Now, the system I've been grappling onto lately for a lot of stuff is, as the title might make obvious, Strange FATE/Kerberos Club. Now, for the most...

    [Marvel] Mass Effect

    I was thinking, the Marvel RPG might be perfect for Mass Effect. You can do the various tech powers as an Omni-Tool power set, with some characters having additional abilities beyond the base. Biotic powers are just psychic powers. And the milestones and events are perfect. For instance in...

    [nWoD+] ...for Mass Effect

    As people may be aware from this thread, my group are looking to play a Mass Effect "break game". We had a chat about it last night, and the strong preference coming through for system was nWoD, which they're quite familiar with. So given the "+" tag, there are two types of responses I'm not...
