The New Arrows of Indra Q&A Thread

(1/8) > >>

RPGPundit:
It had been about a year since I did the old one, so I figured it might be time to do a new one.  It will be hanging out here in the main forum for a while, and may eventually be moved and stickied at the Pundit's forum.

So, if you have any question at all to ask me about Arrows of Indra, please go ahead; those questions and answers might also get reprinted on my blog!

JeremyR:
Are there any further products in the line planned? Adventures, etc?

Any plans to use a similar set of rules for a different setting? There's no shortage of other mythologies that haven't been covered.

A: At the present time there isn't any material being actively worked on, however there is a very good possibility that sometime down the line there will be a setting book that will detail at least one region (probably the Bahlika Kingdoms) in more detail.

Furthermore, as the game is "open" there's always the opportunity for someone other than myself to produce adventures or source material for it, if they wanted to.

A: These rules were, on the whole, created for this specific setting.  If I did some other pseudo-historical setting (say, fantasy epic china, or aztecs, or something like that), I might use the some similar rules in terms of the very basic core mechanics, but I would not (for example) use the same magic system, monsters, magic items, races, etc. because so much of this additional material is directly driven from the Indian mythological concept.

What method of going open did you pick for the game?  How much of the rules stuff is open?  How much of the setting?  What parts are not able to be used by another author without getting your permission first?

JeremyR:
The rules are all open, the setting isn't.

When I meant the rules, I didn't so much mean the India specific stuff, but the basic stuff, like the skill system, which is really one of the better ones I've seen in an OSR style game.
