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.

As I recall there used to be a couple of Cypher fans on this site.


I was a huge fan of this setting back in the day.

New Tabletop RPG.

Three-Step Plan is a tabletop role-playing game where you start by picking your character’s motivation and objective and build onto them from there. Watch as the characters and their schemes interact. The book includes different settings, such as: high fantasy, superheroes, sci fi and wild west. Rules-lite and story-focused this game is meant to be played in one evening with little to no prep, so it's perfect to break out when your wizard bails on the party at the last minute.

Hey you mutants! Just dropping in to tell everybody that my second Kickstarter for Lone Wolf Fists, ROUND 2, is underway! If you're a fan of old-school style games, but ALSO a fan of robust kung-fu action, then this game is for you! I've got LOTS of goodies that you can download FOR FREE to see if the game is to your taste, as well as a Discord, the Fistoverse, where my small legion of fans will welcome you with open Fists and A any Q's you may have about our little project of pain!

It's funding through the merry month of FISTMAS, so ring in the new year the traditional way: By BEATING THE PREVIOUS YEAR TO DEATH!

They want them to cease existing, either by going underground or by murdering them. There is no "let's meet in the middle" with that. To suggest there can be is ignorance" RPGNet

Monster Description Cards kickstarter
https://t.co/zGyPqMSLMX?amp=1
There are only like 15 Early bird specials left so I wanted to give my new fav RPGsite a heads up.


The look very useful, But is the design a little over the top? I don't I like it i guess.

New expansion for Raiders of R’lyeh
« Reply #200 on: December 15, 2020, 05:04:53 pm »
Tramp steamer rules and an entire seafaring expansion for Raiders of R’lyeh! (Think Firefly or the Traveller RPG in the Edwardian era against a backdrop of cosmic horror.)

Writing and layout is DONE. Current stage: art and last hour tinkering.

COMING SOON IN PDF TO LEGACY RAIDERS WHO SUPPORTED THE ORIGINAL GAME, AND AS A 280 PP HARDCOVER BOOK TO NEW BACKERS VIA KICKSTARTER!

RAIDERS OF R’LYEH : FROM THE TIDELESS SEA

The year is 1900. It is an age of IMPERIAL INTRIGUES, PERILOUS ADVENTURES, and SHADOWY CONSPIRACIES. Steamships ply the farthest feral seas, and explorers stir the darkest sorceries from sunken eons.

FROM THE TIDELESS SEA is an exciting expansion for the tabletop roleplaying game, RAIDERS OF R’LYEH. With it, mercenary raiders CAPTAIN STEAMSHIPS, EXPLORE FORBIDDEN WATERS, SALVAGE SUNKEN SECRETS, and OUTWIT SEAFARING SCUM.

The supplement includes new rules and toolkits for operating merchant steamships and leading crews, navigating to far-flung ports and lost worlds, running trade and missions in hostile foreign territories, handling adventures in mysterious ports of call, battling seafaring cults and other menaces — both human and inhuman — hidden across the globe, and investigating an existential and conspiratorial threat overshadowing the world.

(Note that FROM THE TIDELESS SEA is not a stand-alone roleplaying game, but rather an innovative expansion to be used with RAIDERS OF R’LYEH and other d100 systems.)

CHAPTER ONE includes rules for the creation of merchant steamships (“tramp steamers”) and their crews, and customization options based on in-game experience and rewards; also included are thorough rules for creating any vessel type of the era from a rough schematic, or even from a vessel’s gross tonnage — plus options for artillery and other customizations applicable to the players’ ship and to a wide variety of other ship types found in the setting.

CHAPTER TWO provides new seafaring backgrounds, skills, and other options for players including an upgraded mariner background plus resources for creating over EIGHTY NEW PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUNDS including ship personnel, passengers, and other ship-based adventurers.

CHAPTER THREE lists the various new game mechanics relevant to a seafaring campaign, in alphabetical order for easy reference, covering things such as: Communication and Sight at Sea; Damage & Repair (of ships experiencing things such as collisions, fouling, grounding, storms, etc.); Diving (and the creation and customization of diving equipment); Naval Combat (including artillery, torpedoes, mines, and even harpoons); Scaled Forces (including titanic monsters capable of threatening ships); and Survival (including new rules for survival horror at sea); to name only a few categories.

CHAPTER FOUR covers all the options for merchant campaigns, including voyaging, charters, and seafaring missions — plus an entire structure for running a tramp trade — moving cargo and passengers throughout the world — and leading a merchant vessel crew (or even a shipping company).

CHAPTER FIVE includes nearly 100 PAGES OF TOOLKITS FOR THE GAMEMASTER, including exhaustive setting information, character and faction generation tools and rules (including ship and character tables for creating on-the-fly stats and names of ships, crew members, and passengers from a multitude of countries), an encyclopedia of ship types — including warships, gunboats, submarines, merchant vessels, and a host of auxiliaries, among others — and other elements (e.g., custom houses, diplomatic missions, pirates, navies), plus an entire campaign creation section, to name only a few of the resources.

CHAPTER SIX adds an entire chapter devoted to ports of call, including a system for statting up various types of ports and other seafaring regions — plus a QUICK REFERENCE FOR OVER 140 PORTS, HIDEAWAYS, AND LOST WORLDS OF THE ERA.

CHAPTER SEVEN connects directly to the campaign creation resources in chapters five and six, providing step-by-step instructions for creating a wide variety of (mythos- or adventure-based) seafaring missions, mission nodes (for investigations, explorations, voyages, etc.), and plot hooks — and includes an example scenario outline (“Secrets of the Sargasso Sea”) illustrating the scenario creation process.

CHAPTER EIGHT focuses on a specific Ancient One and other enemies (the identities of which are to be kept secret from the players); it provides a complete resource for developing an epic, world-spanning campaign involving ancient evils, powerful conspirators, seafaring cults, mythos minions, and an assortment of interrelating factions — with a lonely, isolated cargo liner caught in the middle of the chaos. Also included are new spells, occult paths, and monster rules for hordes and titanic-sized, ship-threatening horrors, among other resources.

OTHER RESOURCES include a bibliography, characters sheets, a campaign map, and other gamemaster tools — including complete stats for the merchant vessel, SHANTUNG, plus character sheets for her key crew members.

Nord Games have the latest in their massive, system agnostic, random generator books on KS at the moment.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nordgames/dangerous-destinations/description

The partner for the "Settlements" based book for random generation of city adventure locations and hooks. This one is for generating a much wider range of locations and ideas:  burial grounds, camps, fortresses, headquarters, hideouts, outposts, religious sites etc.

Space Aces by P0rthos47 is currently funding on Kickstarter. I'm not him, but I am a supporter.

This game has fast and easy chargen, simple rules and support for group or solo play. There are tons of tables that make GM prep effortless. They've already funded at over 4x their original goal.
The subreddit for Kaigaku, Second Edition. Chargen, gameplay, techniques and more, all free, here.
