This is a site for discussing roleplaying games.

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.

FATUM Character background gnerator for DnD5 and Fantasy RPGs
« Reply #180 on: May 27, 2020, 02:17:39 AM »
WE ARE LIVE!! Currently 63% and more than 540 Backers!!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fatumcards/fatum-character-creator-deck/
So, what is FATUM?



FATUM is a powerful yet easy tool designed to create full-flegded stories for your fantasy RPG characters. Although built with fantastic/ epic roleplaying game systems in mind, it's been developed to fuel other artistic creations, whether you are a writer, a screenwriter or an illustrator.

FATUM is beautifully illustrated with exclusive artwork and carefully designed to delight game masters and players alike!

Enjoy creating new characters and their own unique stories. In no time you'll have a full-developed chronicle for your PC (or NPC!)

FATUM deck allows you to:

-Generate characters and their linked stories in a short time.
-Produce a quick yet full story for an NPC (Non Player Character) when suddendly required on the table.
-Build a character story on the fly for a game in course.
-In case of a story partially created, finish it later quickly and randomly.



Creating the story for your character is fast and easy following playmat positions and instructions. First you divide the deck into five different piles according to categories. Then, except for Class category pile, shuffle every pile and select randomly a stack of them. Tap the whole stack 180º and put them back in the pile. Then shuffle again. Place the piles face down outside the playmat and follow the instructions in the box. Please notice all categories except Class have illustrations at the top and at the bottom: every illustration and its position in the playmat will result in a specific interpretation. This two-side card mechanics allow for countless random generation of stories!

Some cards have mechanics of their own, for example, if you reveal the card "Ally", that card will ask "Who?", and then you must draw a card from a special pile created mixing Class, Backgrounds and Bounds piles. Another example is "Death" card who asks three different questions: "Who?", "Murder?" and "Where?".

Here you can see an example of character creation, drawing cards from the piles and placing them in the playmat:

MoldyCave Virtual Game Table: FREE Online Tabletop

MoldyCave is THE easy-to-learn, free-to-use virtual game table. This Virtual Table Top (VTT) is browser-based and requires no installation. MoldyCave has tools for maps, dice, character sheets, grids, drawing, fog of war, spells/abilities, notes, and more. MoldyCave is an unparalleled system that allows you to play tabletop RPGs with a group remotely on PC, Apple, and mobile devices, with applications for in-person gaming as well!



THE Virtual Tabletop. Moldycave.


MoldyCave absolutely will be free once it is released. And it won't have any "premium" version for pay. All the tools for gaming will be free.

It's on Kickstarter right now, but I'm not pushing for backers. I just want you to check it out, and maybe keep an eye out for when we release it. I think we're already superior in many ways to roll20 and Fantasy Grounds, among others. MoldyCave started because of a move across the country away from my friends and our efforts to find ways to game at a distance.

My hope is that this will be really useful to people who are bored during quarantining and self-isolation, those who have difficulty getting to games in person, and anyone else who finds it useful. My parents worked in jobs that served those who have disabilities, and I worked for a decade in the education system to do similar. I know MoldyCave can become a resource for people with disabilities. I'd love to get feedback and am not asking for support financially (you can if you like), but please try to find people who might benefit and share with them.

I can't post video yet, but we've got our intro video on YouTube (our channel is Tranquility Games) and a kickstarter page under the title MoldyCave (no space).

Please check MoldyCave out. Thanks!

RPG Adventure Candles



Hi, we're Happy Piranha, a small family run business in Cornwall, UK and we're Kickstarting a new range of scented candles, designed for Dungeon Masters and RPG enthusiasts. We want to create a range of candles, inspired by game locations, with scents to stimulate your imagination, deepen your immersion and enhance the narrative.

We're also designing three downloadable maps, based on locations featured on each of the three candle's artwork - perfect for using alongside your candle as inspiration for starting a new adventure, or as an encounter in an existing storyline.

You can find our project here

[ATTACH=CONFIG]4533[/ATTACH]

Why?

Memories are linked to your sense of smell, as is your imagination. We want to bring that sense into play, adding another level of experience and enjoyment to your game.

Your morning coffee or visit to the bakery would not be half as enjoyable without the smell connected with them. The warmth of spring and the aroma of freshly cut grass – the excitement of opening that new DM guidebook and the whiff of pristine print.

The sign of a good game, aside from delving into dungeons and fighting dragons, is the  shared experiences created by the atmosphere you evoke. So why miss out on the full experience – our candles will make a great addition to your storytelling arsenal

The Designs

1. The Tavern: Warm, cosy aroma of apple cider, honey-laced mead and log fires.
Many a great adventure is born at some auspicious inn. Tucked away under the rafters, a band of rag-tag heroes huddle together in the warmth of the log fire, discussing their aspirations for the road ahead whilst enjoying a tankard or two of mead.
[ATTACH=CONFIG]4534[/ATTACH]

2. Emerald Shores: A fresh sea breeze with a trace of coconut from coastal gorse and base notes of salty driftwood.
 Who knows where the wind may take you? Into valuable encounters with those sharing the trade winds or smugglers and privateers with a more sinister intent. There's a profit to be made on the high seas but the risks are equally as high.
[ATTACH=CONFIG]4535[/ATTACH]

3. Dark Forest: Freshly trodden undergrowth, sandalwood and bluebells with a hint of foreboding.
Those who venture deep into the dark woods rarely return to tell the tale. Among the maze of trees, some say you can see the faces of lost souls in the twisted bark. If you are to get through, you will need to enlist all of your senses.
[ATTACH=CONFIG]4536[/ATTACH]

Who are we?
We're Sam and Josh, a twin project (literally) tucked away on the blustery Cornish coast. Josh gets on with it and I do the talking - it's always been this way and it's worked out just fine so far. We look similar on the outside, but aren't that similar on the inside, though we do share a fondness for the same things: fantasy, sci-fi, adventure, books and gaming are all part of what makes us Happy Piranhas.

Our projects are part of a passion. They wind their way from conversations about the things we enjoy, to the ideas they inspire, to Josh's pen and paper and then onto his computer. If we're lucky, some make it into the homes of those who share our sentiments.

You can find out more about us here

Thank you for taking the time to check us out!

Finally, a role playing tabletop rpg game created by a Christian for Christians!

Land of the Christians (LOTC) role-playing game is a storytelling game set in a christian world. The game can take place in any period of history in our world, in any world, if set in fantasy or science fiction world, so long as the character involved is a christian. The character can also be a non christian if the game is set before the new testament period.

This is a game that relies mainly on your imagination to play, although in some cases, the use of a die is needed. It is a game of fighting demons and monsters, converting non-Christians to become Christians, healing an injured team mate in a journey and/or discovering treasure chests. In other words, there is no limit to what the game can be except the limit of your imagination.

Kindly support at the link below!

We're in the final 48 hours for the Wanderer Gamebook+ System. The campaign has been chugging along, and we're now at nearly 6x our original funding goal! The campaign ends on Sunday, the 12th of July.

Come see what all the fuss is about and join the hundreds of other backers who are ready to take down giants, avenge the blood of friends and bring hope back into the world. This project is both a traditional gamebook, in the style of Lone Wolf and Fighting Fantasy, and a solo RPG. Once you finish the included adventure you can make your own on the fly. Record your session, turn it into a gamebook and collab with friends for even more fun.

This game is already going to have supplements to makeit compatible with both Troika and Mothership. If we manage to hit 6K by the end of the campaign we're going to produce a compatibility supplement for OSR games, such as Black Hack.

Come check us out here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1059971838/wanderer-gamebook

Kickstarter: The Palace of Unquiet Repose

The Palace of Unquiet Repose Kickstarter is now LIVE! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mercilessmerchants/the-palace-of-unquiet-repose

For Labyrinth Lord, levels 3-5.
[ATTACH=CONFIG]4756[/ATTACH]
Seamlessly integrating a uniquely horrific atmosphere with brutal location-based adventuring, Palace of Unquiet Repose is a 50-page thrill-ride taking place in the Age of Dusk setting; a brutal Sword & Sorcery epoch, where the Gods have been slain, nameless horrors prowl the wastes baying for blood, and mankind has been reduced to a dim shadow of its former glory. Your players will face horrors never seen before as they explore the subterranean underworld realm of the Palace of Unquiet Repose.

Palace of Unquiet Repose is likely to be the most challenging, intense, harrowing and insane adventure your players have ever experienced. They will descend into the mythical underworld of the Glass Waste and come face to face with an evil that time has forgotten.

Nearly every monster, magic item, trap or effect in Palace is entirely new, never before seen. Are you ready to face such blood-freezing terrors as:

* The beautiful but deadly Nzembarian Concubines
* The enigmatic Azarog, whose limbs are the bodies of Dead Men
* The reality-devouring horror of the Wolf of Final Night
* The all-seeing, angle-annihilating gaze of the Sartoom

These are but a few of the countless sanity-blasting terrors that await those who dare to venture within the Palace of Unquiet Repose!

Light Strikers is here!!!
« Reply #192 on: August 22, 2020, 07:12:40 PM »
[ATTACH=CONFIG]4783[/ATTACH]

This is a BRAND NEW game system & campaign setting for you to feast your imagination on!

The system is story & roleplaying driven. However, combat is equally as important. There are 3 levels to the "Clash system" of rules. Level 1 has basic dice rolls with two 6 sided dice, simplified combat, and pregenerated class loadouts. Level 2 expands the combat, and allows for class customization. Level 3 has fully tactical, skirmish combat with other polyhedral dice like the 20 sided dice. Regardless of the level you play with, everything is compatible, and the game is designed to be as long as a story driven campaign as you want.

The Light Strikers game is complete in draft form. There still will be editing, revisions, and additions made until everything is signed off for final delivery. And this will also depend on which stretch goals are unlocked. But at its foundation, the game is ready to go!

After the campaign ends, it won't be too long before everyone starts receiving final products and unlocked stretch goals. Exciting!
And yes- there are plenty of preview/quickstart materials. There is a solo adventure tutorial book, short story, and novelette preview available at launch. Furthermore, there is a "mini-player's handbook" and Adventure Scenario for the Sage Commander (GM) that is available immediately to those who pledge. It provides the complete level 2 "rules-lite system." Bonus- when the campaign hits its initial goal of $3,000, everyone unlocks an additional book that builds a micro-campaign from the adventure scenario. This will be available immediately.

And there is also an $8,000 stretch goal that unlocks portions of the full Light Strikers game & Clash ruleset that will be available immediately after the campaign ends. These will be compiled into special PDF books that allow everyone to start playing as full Light Strikers, with access to more rules, locations, powers, and extra adventure scenarios! Again, this will be available as soon as the campaign ends!

On a mythical island where gods bicker and empires clash, a band of humble townsfolk will rise up to become legends and change the fate of Avallen forever.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/legendsofavallen/legends-of-avallen


Hi everyone, our Celtic-Roman RPG is on Kickstarter, check it out!

Legends of Avallen is an indie tabletop roleplaying game about humble townsfolk questing through an Iron Age world inspired by Celtic mythology and Roman-occupied Britain. Players will seek out lost relics, outwit terrific beasts, and venture into the entrancing Otherworld of the Fae.

As your story builds, your humble character will grow both in person and in power, developing a character arc and following a legendary path, such as the Bard, the Gladiator, the Magister, or one of many more.

Legends of Avallen is quick to pick up, needing just a deck of playing cards. The mechanics push gameplay into your imagination by rewarding teamwork and creativity with extra cards to flip or share with others.

Exclusively for the Kickstarter, we have a deck of awesomely illustrated custom playing cards made for the game as well as an artbook showing off all the concept work. Join the Kickstarter this weekend get a 10% discount that we are running for the UK Games Expo!

Avallen needs legends.
How will you forge yours?
