I plan on making a campaign where the Players are mercenaries accompanying conquistadors through an expedition into a newly discovered world filled with not!Maya, Aztecs, Inka, and whatever new world civilazation i think to add. I was thinking of running Lamentations of the Flame Princess as it does have some decent rules to emulate early gunpowder weapons, but is there anything better you would recommend

So true, if you wanna go full aztec, make them super supisticious with sacrificing humans and objects to their idols while butchering and consuming the flesh of their victims. Make it common with kidnappings and pillaging between eacgothers with tax collectors that abuse their vassals by forcing out sacrifices and females to sate their lusts. Even others wifes/women.

Every city will have stains of blood at their temples, papas with dresses clogged with dried blood. Skulls and bones that decorate temples, burn the dead with live dogs!

And see the conquistadors hopefully as gods if they decieve the indians*

>What is Genesys?
Released in November 2017, Genesys is a pen-and-paper generic RPG system and toolkit by Fantasy Flight Games, using a refined version of the system presented by their Star Wars RPGs (Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, Force and Destiny). Its central mechanic is the Narrative Dice System, using pools made of specialized dice to create narrative results. The intention is for the system to be a highly flexible narrative system, adaptable to most any conceivable setting and premise.

How would aeffects work without requiring amber? Everyone has made the connection that they work well for superheroes, but most heroes have their powers innately.

It's part on the player it's part on the dm in my view
The player part is that a lot of people in concept want to play but only because they don't see the negative of "wasting" time on it until it's time to really play
The dm part I think is being too lenient, as the dm you choose the time of the game, you take the player's schedule, choose a day, time slot and regular intervals and impose it to them, don't accept changes and if a player misses play without it, if most players miss it just don't play that week or month (this is important, don't be blinded by idealism, once a month is better than once a week with people missing it), rescheduling is poison, one day it happens the game start to spoil

So either this particular players doesn't like your GMing. After all, it's subjective, and you're tuned to your regulars. Or he joined without knowing what this hobby is about and he grew tired of it. Or he doesn't consider part of your group because he's new. Or he feels he's not good enough.

Result is the same, he doesn't want to play. IMO, get rid of him

Hey anons, I hope you are enjoying the thread so ar, looks like the last thread died. This is for the Raven Guards fans.

If 5552 had to choose the opposite of Leman, she would most likely choose Corvus, with Konrad coming to a close. Maybe Lionel if it came to personality.

Other than Leman’s bombastic introduction, the total opposite of him was Corvus Corax. The only glimpse she has ever seen of his face was when she spoke to the Emperor the first time. Even now she had yet to see her son’s face fully.

She knew he visited her. It was the little things that she noticed. Her first gift was a small music box of ancient terran music left on her nightstand. Another gift was a small crystal from Deliverance. 5552 examined the crystal in her hand then she sighed as she lay on her bed lazily. She looked out at the gleaming moonlight.

“Looks like it’ll be a good night for a walk.

The moon draped over the garden with pale light. 5552 enjoyed nights more than days. Most likely because of her habit of hiding away from humanity. She would never know the true reason, time tended to do such things.

thanks for the bump anons, I didn't expect the thread to survive.

5552 wandered the rustic country that was Whealen. The wheat fields were wide as the oceans, and tamed nature was abundant, and it even had blue skies like the old days on Earth. The folks here were nice as well, save for the dock workers. It was a world that 5552 was optimistic about.

With credits 5552 stolen from the Inquisitor while he was asleep, she bought herself a ticket from the docks. Then at a store stand she bought rations and a bag. As the old stand owner packed her items he spoke.

“What’s a young girl like yourself doing here all alone in the docks?” The stand owner asked.

5552 played with her newly cut and curled hair. “Just a traveler seeking jobs. Do you happen to know any that’s hiring? Further from here the better.”

The stand owner rubbed his chin. “Any agri factories should be looking for laborers, they usually provide food and board too. Though I don’t think it’s a job for someone so… small of your stature.”

“Does anyone want to be captured by them?” 5552 asked with a cheeky smile.

The store owner nodded agreeingly. “You have a point. Emperor help anyone that is captured. You should be careful too little lady.”

“I will. Thank you mister.”

5552 navigated through the bustling docks and she waited for her transportation to arrive. If there is one thing she knew about hunters like Adeptus Arbites, they only check the first vehicles leaving.

“Number 2555 is arriving. Repeat 2555 is arriving.”

5552 walked past the Adeptus Arbites. The more desperate they were the better chance she had of hiding. 5552 showed her ticket then took her seat in the giant bus. On the 5th floor of the bus she took her seat, she watched the dock gradually becoming smaller as she headed for her new life in this world.

I have played it and it didn't go great (though that is more so my fault). You have to be clear with people and tell them what they're getting into- this isn't 5e or Pathfinder; you're lucky to survive two hits from some rando with a big club smacking you upside the head. If you charge into combat you're just going to get killed, if the players don't know this it's game over- which I didn't let my players know. If anyone runs this for any group of people not familair with the OSR or other OSR-like games, let them know that a creative solution to combat or avoiding combat is going to be the best way to go.
But, from what we did play it was fun! Everyone liked the randomness of it and loved rolling up ugly ass characters with the tables in the book. Though, if you're not one for randomness and neither are your players I don't think much provided in the book is gonna do anything for you. The whole system is under the assumption that the GM will be doing very little prep time and make stuff up on the spot with the tables provided

Questing Beast says that this game is great for one shots and campaigns, and although I agree with the former... Nah, this system would not stand up to much beyond a dozen sessions or so. Since the deadlyness doesn't really die down even after you've gone up a level or two I think players would just be pissed off that they got one shotted because everyhing has the potential to do half your health in one hit. The game could be tweaked to work for longer games- but at that point you may as well be playing something else like Old-School Essentials, Lamentations, or even ICRPG if you wanna keep it ultra light.

For one offs, and solitary adventures like some of the Lamentations stuff, in particular Death Frost Doom which QB has run multiple times in this system; this game is perfect. The game is so sweet and simple you could introduce people brand new to RPGs to the game, create characters, and run a one off all in one three or four hour game.

If anyone is going to run this, I would really suggest checking out Fancypants' Knave which is just a recompiling of the rules, adding things that could help flesh out longer campaigns and it adds in tables from Ben Milton's other game Maze Rats.
https://abominablefancy.blogspot.com/2018/10/knaves-fancypants.html

If anyone is looking for things to run I've been looking at Fever Swamp, Death Frost Doom, and Gardens Of Ynn, Rakehell, and A Thousand Thousand Islands. All of which I think would run well in the system. This has been my Ted Talk.

>>73665457
There's a thing Mork Borg does that can help characters last a little longer, which is if they fall to exactly 0HP, they are 'Broken'.
They roll a d4;
> 1: ko'd for d4 rounds, awake with d4 hp.
> 2: roll a d6; 1-5 = broken/severed limb, 6 = lost eye. can't act for d4 rounds, then recover with d4 hp.
> 3: hemorrhage; dead in d2 hours unless treated, all tests dc16 in first hour, dc18 in last hour.
> 4: dead
If your character is hit and goes into negative hp though, they're just dead.
It's a small grace, though with a little luck can make a character last longer than usual. I reckon it's easy enough to slip the Broken mechanic into Knave if you're going past a one-shot or just feel the PCs need some mercy.
>>
>>73666861
I liked what they did in ICRPG which is if you were hit to zero or bellow you rolled a D6 on your turn, and that was how many rounds you had to live; either had to roll a 20 or have someone pick you up. And it was somewhat balanced by the fact that if you were hit for half your total health and went down, or you went down to half your health in the negatives you went "SPLAT" and died instantly. Or something like that, been awhile since I've read it.
>>
>>73666861
I like that idea.

You don't start in a tavern. Your DM doesn't say anything about how you met. There's no intro.

You wake up on the ground in the middle of nowhere. There are other PCs around you. They don't seem immediately hostile. An approaching giant spider does. You take it out together.

You could do anything, but you have to get food before your starting rations run out.

Workable opening or complete dumpster fire waiting to happen?
