(WWI) Oddball Flying machines

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnmI5btQSd8 Sky bandits, aka Gunbus. is a dumb movie during World war one. However, it does deal with some of the craziest flying machines I have ever seen. Some that a Junker would have made if he had lived then. Outside of weird science, just how would you work maki...

Re: The Story or having fun?

But you can still get the golden BB and kill anything with a one shot. As long as you're allowed to roll damage. 8) Which raises the question, how did a pistol get to roll damage? The Hags are Gargantuan, which means they can only be hurt by Heavy Weapons. Why did his pistol count as a Heavy Weapon...

Re: The Story or having fun?

If players kill your big bad guy, he wasn't that big. Bad guys are rarely alone and there is always a boss of a boss and someone ready to take his place. I never like to have a single boss unless I'm ready for the campaign to end. Always better to have some kind of organization. In one of my 50 Fat...

Re: The Story or having fun?

Here is an idea for an Open Sandbox Game. Pick one supplement or all of them, give the characters X amount of money from a items list that has everything from healing potions to blasters. Put them in the middle of a green space, surrounded by fog and let them pay Bennies to say what is out there. GM...

Re: The Story or having fun?

WHat I have learned is, you need to improvise, not just bash people over the head with your "wonderful idea" I have seen GM's scream over PC's killing off their carefully crafted NPC. Its like a bad batman concept. You capture Mr K with all the goods and then next week MR K is out on bil a...

The Story or having fun?

I was recently in a game, short lived, where the GM was deciding what the PC's could or could not do in order to preserve the story. I mean, WTF? Isn't his about having fun? Is the story more important than having fun doing the daring deeds? For me, when I GM, the players and I are weaving the story...

Re: Angels and Demons as PC's?

after you save the world, what do you do for an encore? Retire? Activate your epic destiny? Wander off into the wastes as a potential origin point for a future character? Die a penniless alcoholic in a gutter? What does any character do after saving the world? Well, after one game where we saved th...

Re: Maze Adventures

I'd like to see someone else, other than myself, do a Channel cut thru the maze. It only makes sense and they have the tech to do it. Just think of all the ghost rock you could get as a by product of cutting the channel. Not to mention all the monsters you piss off making your way to the sea from wh...

Re: Angels and Demons as PC's?

unless you are playing only Angels and Demons in a game, I personally don't think they should be PC's at all. IF you have them in a game as PC's why bother playing a human/mortal? You could always give the humans a few extra Advances to start. Not a bad idea if they are going to be battling demons!...

Re: 50 Fathoms Unexplored Concepts

I messed around with the idea of the Redman's Gods and decided that what is shown in the book is actually only the Highland's Gods. The lowlanders used blood magic and had gods of Air and sea and the like. THOSE were the ones the sea hags invoked and the Priestesses, (Yep all female) Either drown or...

Re: Abstract Wealth Idea

In general, I do not have my players grubbing for matches. I like the 50 fathoms type of trading, and instead of having the PCs go begging, I try to see what they will do with loads of wealth. If they just sit on their cash, or worse try to carry it with them, they get into some interesting situatio...

Re: Abstract Wealth Idea

Abstract wealth works well for a small group not doing heavy buying. Accursed Does a great job with this. However it falls apart when you try having a merchant as a PC.

Re: Savaged DOOM

Mostly I need stats for the monsters. I can get good pics of them online, but I want a good write up on the beasties. Think of a Hell Comes To Earth rather than Hell on Earth. THings start out on Mars and then fall down the gravity well.

Re: Setting Traps

Misfit studios has Fantasy traps and MORE fantasy traps. In their they list costs and the like. If you wanted a detailed guide on Pulp traps, I'd say ask them and they will whip one up in a couple months.
