    Feedback wanted: Wild Talents: Shadowrun - modelling Drain

    Hi all, I'm running a game of Shadowrun using Wild Talents and am modelling the different aspects (Magic, Cyberware, Adepts and Martix/Cyberspace) using WT miracles with required extras and flaws depending on the power type. The players all love the setting and system, except for the Shaman...

    [Wild Talents] Rules Question: Variable Effect and Capacities

    Okay, this is driving me slowly mad and not addressed in any errata I've found: I note that this does not say Variable Effect has the Self Capacity either, but then the Variable Effect powers become inconsistent. Alternate Forms (p. 141) lists all its Capacities as "Self". It has the If/The...

    [Wild Talents] I want a template book!

    Hi all, Wild Talents is a cool game and especially Kerberos Club, but what stops me from using this gane, beside time, is that creating a character takes a lot time and thinking. It would be great to be able to just apply some templates like in Numenera. You select your archetype, profession...

    Why is Wild Talents (2nd) considered to be gritty/lethal?

    Hi all, I never played Wild Talents, but I own some books for it and hope to run it, when I get some time (maybe never). I often heard that the combat system is pretty dangerous. Why? I get it, that it can be deadly if you get one or more hits to your head, but that is the case for most systems...

    [Wild Talents- Progenitor][Campaign Premise]A Different Kind of Progenitor

    Right, not sure if there's much interest in Wild Talents nowadays, but I got an idea regarding a campaign idea, but seeing as I have no one to play with, I figured I best just share this with everyone else. See, in baseline Progenitor, Amanda is a emotionally stable (at first), high-minded...

    [Wild Talents] Body swapping power?

    Anyone have any ideas on how to build a "I temporarily swap bodies with you" power? If it was just against normal people sure, Useful probably does it, but then you start thinking about using it on powered people...and then you probably get access to many or all of their powers when you're in...

    [Wild Talents 2e] Help me build Major Motoko from Ghost In The Shell

    I was thinking of using WT 2e for a GITS-like campaign. I think the ORE system is a nice fit but because I haven't got much experience with it I need some help constructing some example characters So I chose Major Motoko because she's combines most of the usual powers found in the setting...

    [Progenitor (Wild Talents)] Creating a bunch of Power Inheritors! Wild Talents Power Creation Workshop

    So, I've started off a new Progenitor game and I'll be doing a Let's Play here, but I figured I'd start a thread in Tabletop Open for actually generating all the various empowered NPCs that are going to necessarily pop up throughout the course of the campaign. I find making Wild Talents...

    [Wild Talents] They Own You

    So, I was reading through Technoir recently, and I thought of (what I think is) a pretty neat premise for a supers game. I don't have time to run it, so I thought I'd share. Welcome to Paradise City! Welcome to scenic Paradise City! It's a wonderful place to live - the weather's lovely year...

    [Progenitor (Wild Talents)] Gods & G-Men

    So I'm starting up a new Progenitor game, so I'm going to start brainstorming here and then add on posts as play progresses. Feel highly encouraged to comment with help brainstorming, suggestions on where to take things, powers for NPCs, etc. :) We've got a group centered around the FBI in...

    Wild Talents Confusion

    Hello folks, hoping I can find some people here who can help me understand parts of Wild Talents that are throwing me for a loop. I have been reading forum posts, reading GODLIKE information as well since it seems to be the same system but there are a few areas now that are confusing me. I will...

    [ORE] Speak to me of its virtues...

    I should preface this by saying that I've actually run a LITTEL Reign and one failed game of Wild Talents. That was some time ago and I set both games aside. Recently, however, I did the first session of a BRP Warlords of Alexander game, and the players have made it decidedly political. Now...

    [Wild Talents] Hurting Insubstantial Characters

    As it says on the tin. I'm very new to this system - I'm only running because I had the game idea, but I've never used this ruleset before. Is it possible to hurt an Insubstantial character with regular superpowers, or do I have to specifically build psychic attacks to hurt them?

    [Wild Talents] Help build my party

    I'm starting a Godlike campaign, using the Wild Talents 2nd edition rules. So that's 25 Points of powers, and some in-setting limitations on what powers exist. I need some help building (or quality-checking) the characters. I'll break them up into separate posts. The Old Switcheroo This...

    [Wild Talents/Traveller] What changes in the OTU if I shorten space travel?

    (I posted this over on the CoTI forums, but I wanted to get you folks' input as well). So, I've got an upcoming game, and I plan on using the Traveller Imperium (and the Zhodani, and the Sword Worlds, and other such), but I want to give it more of a Guardians of the Galaxy feel. I'm using a...

    [Wild Talents] Starships, Weapons, and such - "cost"?

    As mentioned elsewhere, turns out I'm going to be running a "Big Damn Heroes" game in Wild Talents; consider it a mish-mash of Guardians of the Galaxy and Traveller (I'll even be using the Classic Traveller subsector maps and starship schematics). With that said, I've a few issues or questions...

    [One Roll Engine] What are you doing with it?

    Like the title says - what are you doing with your ORE games? Like, I'm reading through Reign and Wild Talents now and, despite my urge to do a certain game I'm working on now (lone village against monsters) in Burning Wheel, I've just realized, with Reign, I can actually stat the village and go...

    [Wild Talents] Help me understand the die differences for powers!

    First, let me start off and say, mechanically, I know what the die differences are between Regular, Hard, and Wiggle dice. What I'm trying to figure out here is what the "in-world" differences are (which will segue into "real life" applications, or at least setting life ones). Let's take the...

    [ORE +] One-Roll Engine Bundle of Holding: Wild Talents, Godlike, Better Angels, more

    I loves me some One-Roll Engine so I wanted to call attention to the current Bundle of Holding. They just changed servers and IPs so if you still get the generic "Great Game and Book Collections ...for Fantastically Low Prices" screen, the DNS change hasn't propagated to the DNS server your...
