This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Calling All Builders!
« on: April 29, 2021, 09:54:29 AM »
What with all the "Story Game" hate here maybe not the best place to ask but, who knows?

Using "Forged in the Dark" rules a RPG game based off of "Dungeon Keeper" was created called "Wicked Ones". In it you play as monsters and build a dungeon.
Does anyone know if there is an Adventurer version where a town or keep is built by the "Good" folk instead?

I didn't realize how much I would like that, even if it used "Forged in the Dark" rules. 

I suppose I can reskin "Wicked Ones" by why reinvent the wheel if it is already available?

Forbidden Lands does something like that iirc.  Like it's cousin Mutant: Year Zero, part of the game revolves around building and improving your home base.

Interesting.  Doesn't look like it uses the same basic rule system though.

For fluff you may want to check out Royal Road and its story ''Blue Core'' which is about a benevolent sentient dungeon that does indeed level up and expand. Its a nice take on the point of view of the ''baddies'' who are not that bad.

Dungeon Keeper games showed us how it looks from the monsters point of view. Isekai stories are quite numerous in how cities and guilds are made. Fluff wise its relevant at least.

"a benevolent sentient dungeon" ?!?
I'm thinking that is unusual.
