TOPIC: What ROLE-PLAYING have you been doing?

What ROLE-PLAYING have you been doing? 26 Jun 2018 07:22 #276225

I have a few newish roleplayers I want to get into the hobby, and was searching around for a rules-light system. Things like Dungeon World require studying the Stanislavsky method to really get the most out of them; I needed one that allowed for a little less improvisation on the part of the GM. I was happy to have discovered Maze Rats: questingblog.com/maze-rats/

I really like the magic system.

I just ordered Dungeon World on Amazon to see if I can wrap my head around what it does different than an OSR game.

Nice to see folks dabbling in Dungeon World!

If anyone's interested in trying Freebooters on the Frontier, my old school hack of Dungeon World, the playtest version of the 2nd edition is available here. It's just the bare-bones mechanics, so you'll need a passing understanding of DW to run it.

Very interested! Thanks for the link!

Do you happen to have any suggestions for converting OSR characters to DW? I have a game with my wife and daughter I'd like to convert over and they each have a 5th level fighter and a dragon mount. I was thinking about just halving all their bonuses.

What ROLE-PLAYING have you been doing? 18 Jul 2018 20:26 #277881

Last night a friend of mine started DMing the 5e module Out of the Abyss. This is my first experience playing any of the WotC published adventures (I have previously DMed Lost Mine of Phandelver) and we had a really good time. I am playing a Tabaxi Rogue. For those not in the know, the Tabaxi are basically a race of cat people. My character is going for a Chaotic Neutral allignment, sort of amoral and selfish, curious to a fault. You know, like a cat.

Spoilers for the beginning of the adventure to follow:

We had a lot of fun. I'm excited to continue our adventure next week.

This inspired me to pick up the rules for Maze Rats myself. I don't think I'll fit in a game in the immediate future, but I think between D&D adventures it'll be really good for more low-overhead GMing. Looking forward to trying it.
