    OSR Review of Mörk Borg, a Doom Metal Album of an OSR RPG

    In some ways that will be subjective. However, I was impressed by how readable the book is with all the layout changes. You can see detailed runthroughs of the interior on reviews on YouTube if you have concerns.

    OSR Review of Mörk Borg, a Doom Metal Album of an OSR RPG

    With a little hacking, yes. Mork Borg is similar to the Black Hack. It has OSR roots but has evolved them to make for a more streamlined system. But it remains eminently hackable.

    Cubicle 7 No Longer Producing The One Ring and Adventures in Middle Earth

    The one thing I will say about MERP is that it recognised that ME was all about magic items. It went so far as to include the PCs finding a magic medallion in the gutter on the way through Minas Tirith in the opening box text for Palantir Quest. Class.

    Cubicle 7 No Longer Producing The One Ring and Adventures in Middle Earth

    You obviously did not read this post before you decided to try and turn into "MERP is the best ME RPG ever" thread. Just above your post is an explanation that the licence remains with SG and SG have said that TOR will continue given how successful and well received it has been. C7 has just...

    Modiphius’ Latest License: Dishonored

    Though they share the same base system, the 2d20 games do differ considerably. You may be able to use material from Mutant Chronicles with stuff from Infinity, and the same for JC and Star Trek, but it would be much more difficult the farther down the spectrum of 2d20 games you go.

    Get Started With World of Darkness With The New Blood Starter Pack

    They are charging £5 for a quickstart preview of the game? Surely it would be better as a free preview if the intent is to get people to buy the full RPG.

    Modiphius’ Latest License: Dishonored

    Cool. I played the system quite a bit and had the opposite reaction. Familiarity does help speed things up but the issues only became more obvious with time. I haven't played JC though, and it may be by stripping the system right back to bare basics, they revealed the system underneath. However...

    Modiphius’ Latest License: Dishonored

    See my response above. It just has too many parts that do the same thing or similar things (number of dice & target numbers, momentum & hero points, how damage works to name a few) often in not particularly intuitive ways. IMO it needs an overhaul to bring its systems in line and avoid this echo...

    Modiphius’ Latest License: Dishonored

    I find it to be a confusing mess of mechanics, with too many resources overlapping each other. It feels like its over-designed in order to make you think that there is more going on than there should be. I haven't checked out John Carter, which may be better as its simpler, but I have checked...

    WFRP Release Updates for 2020

    Not 4th edition. However, it is easier to convert 1e and 2e to ZH as its mechanically closer to them than 4e is. Fortunately, all of The Enemy Within is already out for 1e: DriveThruRPG.com - Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd. - Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay First Edition - The Largest RPG Download Store!

    Cubicle 7 No Longer Producing The One Ring and Adventures in Middle Earth

    Its more complex than that. Doesn't the design team on TOR work for Sophisticated Games? Perhaps SG does more than just licence the IP and may even retain much of the IP in TOR and AiME, much like GW does with WFRP.
