    What System For...?

    Does this system support giant sized monsters or is more of a “Supernatural”/“Buffy” simulator? Also what’s the game system like in a nutshell? Thanks!

    What System For...?

    I'm not that familiar with Tinyd6, but that looks like it's worth a look! Than you. I have the Savage Worlds supplement you mentioned and tried it. It worked OK, and I've really enjoyed SW for other games, but it felt like SW mechanics weren't the best fit for what I was going for.

    What System For...?

    Yeah, I picked CoC since I could re-stat some of the eldritch horrors as kaiju, or at least use them as a basis between scaling them and the humans. I may look at BRP in the future.

    What System For...?

    I appreciate the suggestion... I've thought about using it in the past, but for some reason I bounce off Fate every time I've tried it!

    What System For...?

    This is a fun thread! My game concept is Kaiju with human PCs that's basically a Godzilla movie. I've run a few games like this in the past as one-shots, usually with a lot of homebrewing and hacking. I usually allow the players to control giant monsters in monster battle scenes (sometimes...

    Questions about Sentinel Comics RPG actual play experiences

    This is honestly one of my favorite features of the game. The escalation of "Green" to "Red Zones" is something I've sought to import into other games. The idea of characters getting more abilities and tapping into hidden reserves as a battle goes on is such a ubiquitous trope of genre fiction...

    Questions about Sentinel Comics RPG actual play experiences

    Yeah, I enjoyed the game, but I'm afraid it's a bit niche in the rpg world in a genre that's already niche (supers). I think a few other things that caused my group to falter on it (and we've played a variety of Supers rpgs, including HERO, Mutants & Masterminds, Savage Worlds Supers, FASERIP)...

    The Rise And Fall Of Evil Genius Games

    For my part, Everyday Heroes only came on my radar when the Kong and Pacific Rim books came out. I love giant monster stuff and over the years occasionally try to hack various game engines to run kaiju 1-shots. In the end, The Kong and Rim books both had some interesting ideas and lore, but I...

    The Rise And Fall Of Evil Genius Games

    No, no gender implied in the class itself, just the art. I have the core book, but never played Everyday Heroes, but as a class design seems pretty solid

    The Rise And Fall Of Evil Genius Games

    She's a Charisma based class depicted as a certain (how-shall-I-put-it) cosplayer theme inspired by the famous Harajuku street. She has various emotional and mental control abilities ("demoralize", "hypnotize"). -Edit- Beaten to the punch by the actual picture!

    Questions about Sentinel Comics RPG actual play experiences

    I played this a few times, but only in very short games with irregular groups. I’d play it more but I always have a hard time gathering players who like my off brand style of super heroing. 1. I was the moderator, I would have preferred splitting the duty but no one was familiar enough with...

    What is, in your opinion, the single WORST RPG ever made, and why is it so bad?

    Oh, the elves are there, they just rebranded and hoped you wouldn’t notice! 😝

    What is, in your opinion, the single WORST RPG ever made, and why is it so bad?

    I’m going to echo too some of the frustrations of Amber Diceless. It might not objectively be the worst rpg ever made but I’ve only had bad, game group ending experiences with it. I think the GM has to really be truly in tune with the game to run it fairly and interestingly. Something about the...

    Monarch legacy of monsters

    I thought the latest episode was an improvement over the last handful, but it felt like we should have gotten this amount of plot momentum about 3-4 episodes earlier. The main three modern characters have really become one-note (and almost interchangeable) at this point, I do wish the show had...

    Rank the Star Trek TOS movies

    1. Wrath of Khan - it’s the only one I still watch once a year or so. That Horner soundtrack gets me pumped up everytime. 2. Star Trek VI - I feel like only at the end of their run did they figure out how to make a big adventure Trek movie. A fine send off for the TOS crew. And I’ve used that...

    D&D 5E When did you last buy a WotC D&D5e product? (not a third party or DM Guild)

    Planescape is my only 2023 WotC purchase, as I’m a huge fan of the 2e material. Prior to that I think it was Radiant Citadel, but after a disappointing Spelljammer and some questionable decisions by the company and very mixed reviews with their most recent books, I’ve been very hesitant with...

    Godzilla Minus One - Official Trailer (2023)

    I just saw this movie today… an excellent film with a surprising amount of heart. If you have any love for the Big G and have the opportunity to see it at the cinema, please do! You won’t be sorry!

    How long are your gaming sessions?

    I’m part of both live and online groups. In live play we usually average around 6 hours, but only get to play once a month if we’re lucky. When online we typically only run 2 hour sessions, but usually play much more frequently. Its funny that for me, a 6 hour live game can feel “short”, but...

    How Do You Like Your Super Hero TTRPG Games/Campaigns?

    Even though I’ve used licensed engines (Marvel, DC) I realized I’ve never actually played in a licensed setting. I guess it feels like there’s too much established lore and characters to compete with. On the other hand, I’ve definitely reskinned plenty of existing characters, eg Colossus...

    D&D General "I have Played in or Run a Campaign Set in the Forgotten Realms" (a poll)

    They were around level 8 at the end of Pool. I did milestone leveling, so they usually gained a level each time they cleared out a major section of old Phlan.
