- The Metzger book is enormous. So, first i had to sort of put the brakes on the tables and decide how much stuff i wanted to leak into play. I settled on letting them roll if they were mutations or more animal type creatures. Gave each player two body mutations and I think one addl physical and mental modifiier. I was running an additional Corruption mechanic that modified the Saves so they could buy into addl mutations for added Corruption.
Character 1 rolled up: Birthmark, Bug Eyes, Super Charisma. Character 2: Big; Gaseous; Long legs: Multiple Personalities. Character Three: One eye; Cilia; speech impediment.
These were all friends and hardcore Story Gamers for a one-shot. Mostly we just used the Alien factor for color. Though the gaseous form and multiple personalities of Character 2 had a lot of show time. If I'd been doing a campaign or thought this through better, I'd have given them some sort of auto-success or something 1x per game on their powers. One time the charisma came up and i gave the player a dice modifier but it wasn't a very successful resolution.
The second character had no problem losing the final conflict and narrated losing a contest as getting a hole in his vacc suit and his gaseous form being vented out into space.9w
- Would you mind if I posted the picture above and some notes you written about your game on my blog.
I'm interested in posting details of different settings and campaigns people are building from the CT rules.8w
- not at all. If you'd be so kind to credit the RPG Roulette event that spawned it too i'd be ever so grateful. I'd be happy to answer any further questions about my spin on CT or the hacks either here or by email if there's anything further I can add. (firstname.lastname@example.org)8w
