Topic: General RPG Talk

A thread for talking about RPGs, not attached to any specific ongoing campaign.

I wanted to share the Kickstarter campaign a friend of mine has going currently. It's a tabletop game that can be played with a tablet in the middle, offering missions from a central server and allowing players to influence a shared world. Think of it as a Massively Multiplayer Online Table Top Role Playing Game... MMOTTRPG. (Or "Tablet Top" if you prefer.)

Anyway. Within a couple days they're over 2/3 funded and are a Kickstarter Staff Pick. Oh also I shot and edited the video tongue

Re: General RPG Talk

Sweet! Such a fascinating concept. I love tabletop games in concept, but mostly because I really want to participate in the elaborate model and world building. There are many Kickstarter projects that I would enjoy supporting due the options that are presented in the model making.

However, this tablet concept, in my opinion, allows for so much more versatility that I could really get behind that concept.

I hope it works out.

God loves you!

Re: General RPG Talk

Well, it got fully funded earlier today - two days in - so monetarily I'm sure they'll be fine. From what I can tell when I met their creative team, I'm sure they'll be able to deliver afterward too.

Post Replica was just officially funded with more than double their goal, and a couple of stretch goals along the way big_smile I did a video of an Alpha build playtest that was a lot of fun, can't wait to see the full rulebook and such.

Dipping in and out of watching 'Cannibal Cruise' while decorating... I'm half way through the 3-hour vid... I'm calling it. That ship is going down! Nice job DM-ing Boter.

Hurroo

Re: General RPG Talk

Thanks big_smile Couldn't have done it without the seasoned sniper, the pyromaniacal Scottish-Canadian lumberjack, or Bent Gently. The players make the game as much as the DM does.

Re: General RPG Talk

Good friends + imagination = Good RPG craic. I probably would have climbed into a life boat and said - "fuck that! I'm outta here!" Not before heading to the nearest bar and ringing out a bad rendition of Drunken Sailor.

Re: General RPG Talk

Hyper RPG! just started uploading thier Shadowrun campaign. Haven't had a chance to watch it yet, but they seem pretty competant (Hyper RPG is the new Twitch channel spearheaded by Zach, who started the Geek and Sundry Twitch channel).

Might be good for us to see how people who... actually know what they're doing....play the game. tongue

Re: General RPG Talk

So apparently HyperRPG has also been doing a how-to shadowrun series for the past couple weeks, only 4 vids in, but two of those are The matrix and magic/the astral plane. Things we uh... you know... don't do.

Worth a look.

Humble Bundle just released their new RPG bundle, with a ton of gamebooks. Wish I had any money to throw at this, I honestly wouldn't mind trying the Dresden RPG sometime.

There's a Mistborn setting? That's fucking awesome. I think I'll get that.
