It’s been awhile since I have actually posted anything here. I am a super troll however and regularly skim the boards. These boards are frickin amazing… not only in style and layout… but content. Love coming here and reading everything you lunatics are creating. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
That said I have been doing so many different things lately. The Murder Hobo Show has changed from Savage Rifters and Threats Treats and Timers to just the “Murder Hobo Show” It is now just a general RPG podcast so I can talk about more than just Rifts and ICRPG.
I have been running a test of sorts and it is turning out amazingly. When 5e first came out I ran adventurers league at a local gaming store for about 3 years on sundays. I loved season one that takes place in phlan, and I have been itching to try ICRPG in a “Campaign” setting. SO I combined the two. I have been running season one using ICRPG mechanics and it is working incredibly well!!
Over the last couple months I have been running a sunday morning game and something amazing happened that I am still trying to work on/wrap my head around. I don’t know if i missed it or what…
… but lately i have been just letting my players describe successes and failures. The SCENE number is on the table right there for players to see. I set the scene, describe the problem, the player im interacting with tells me his “solution” I ask for the appropriate roll… and let the magic happen. The player knows without asking if they have passed the roll and I take a step back and ask the players to describe what happened… It has been tough for me to step back, but overtime I have been getting some crazy input that drives the story in incredible directions. Actually absolutely loving it!!
Anyways just wanted to throw that out there… its been an amazing process and learning experience for an old GM.
So that said… I have been releasing maps on TTS still if your interested I have built another couple maps, you can see them here.
You can download the pdf for season one for a couple bucks for some great story lines and use the maps for hours of good online 3d gaming
