Witchblade and Superman for Strands of Fate

« 13 January 2018 | 6:52 | Stats, Strands of Fate | No Comments »

Witchblade for Strands of Fate Sure, Witchblade is one attractive, skimpily-dressed heroine, but that’s not the main reason she’s in the writeup queue. She’s one of my wife’s favorite heroes. Witchblade is one of the few really good heroines out there that isn’t just a knockoff of a male hero, and that is still really […]



Batman for Strands of Fate

« 6 January 2018 | 7:09 | Stats, Strands of Fate | No Comments »

A few notes: If you haven’t figured it out, the Wealth Optional Stress Track rule is in effect. Most of these characters have appeared in many different versions in a variety of media. I’m going to try to present a well-rounded, “classic” version of the character. I’ll admit to a certain bias towards Bronze-Age/80s versions, […]



Spider-Man for Strands of Fate

« 3 January 2018 | 9:52 | Stats, Strands of Fate | No Comments »

One of my favorite multi-genre RPG systems is Strands of Fate, by Mike McConnell of Void Star Games (also makers of the transhuman cyberpunk RPG Nova Praxis). It’s the only version of FATE that ever really clicked for me. Over the New Year’s holiday, and while sick the last few days, I’ve fooled around with […]



“The Alice” for Dungeon Crawl Classics

« 6 December 2014 | 19:20 | Classes, Old School Gaming, Stats | No Comments »

Zak Smith’s “A Red and Pleasant Land” (http://www.lotfp.com/store/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=190) released recently, and it is beautiful and cool. It includes a new class for Lamentations of the Flame Princess and other OSR games, “The Alice”. The rules require very little tweaking for Dungeon Crawl Classics; here are the few changes that occur to me. Hit Points, Weapon […]



Alien Artifacts: The Cosmic Thimble

« 6 September 2014 | 18:44 | Earth-Omega Setting, Invulnerable RPG, Stats | No Comments »

Super hero stories are full of all-powerful Maguffins that can’t be allowed to fall into the wrong hands … and inevitably do. It’s not much fun to say, “the bad guy got the thing, game over” in a roleplaying game, so it might be fun to have some rules for the thing. And while we’re […]



d30 Mutation Table for 5E and OSR

« 30 August 2014 | 10:27 | D&D 5E RPG, Old School Gaming, Stats | No Comments »

Every world can use Mutation Tables. Mutations can result from Sorcerers’ wild magic, they can be the dangerous inhabitants of a world after a nuclear holocaust, or they can be the results of magical experiments gone wrong. Roll 1d30 twice for each Mutant, to see what strange mutations they exhibit. Edit 18 April 2015: The […]



Robot Race for D&D 5E

« 16 August 2014 | 8:43 | D&D 5E RPG, Races, Stats | No Comments »

Robots are artificial beings constructed by advanced civilizations to do work judged too boring or too dangerous for fleshthings. Robots sometimes find their way to low-tech, high-magic worlds when their alien ships crash, while others wander in through portals. Others are leftover artifacts of some lost, ancient, high-tech civilization from millennia ago. Most robots are […]

Noodling with some 5E stuff

« 14 July 2014 | 22:52 | D&D 5E RPG, Stats | No Comments »

I was a hard sell on D&D Next. After 4th Edition, I had basically written off D&D. I was pretty sure Wizards had completely lost their way. Turns out I was wrong. They were smart enough to listen to the fans. After perusing some playtest materials about a week before the Basic Set dropped, I […]
