Announce Future Badness
Hello everyone! Apparently G+ is morphing slowly out of existence. I’m sad about that, but so it goes. We will still be here for the next 6-8 months, so don’t fret. Probably till the last day. Meanwhile, the maelstrom has announced future badness, so yes, I’m looking for where to move this community. I’m looking for something without a paywall and with good business practices that feels user-friendly and supports longer discussions. Not sure where that is yet though. Do know that I will let you know where I’m going and where you are welcome to come too, if you wish to join me.

Love,
Your MB

UPDATE: We’ve got 8 months. I’m gonna do the research and see where I want to be. Until then, I’ll be here.

A young Bride. A powerful and rich man with a beard that is shockingly blue. A massive house full of rooms, each room full of horrors. A ring of keys to open the doors, but one room is forbidden to the Bride by her new husband. A message that calls the husband away, leaving the Bride alone to explore her new home. An inexorable curiosity that drives her to open the door anyway, only to discover the bodies of previous, slaughtered brides. The husband returns, and discovers what the Bride has done, and the forbidden room gains another occupant. This might summarize the French folktale known as Bluebeard, a story whose most famous surviving version was published all the way back in 1697. But in this case it also summarizes Bluebeard’s Bride, an investigatory horror tabletop roleplaying game from Magpie Games in which you, my friends, are the Bride.

How have you handled groups with the Rich tag? It says:

"Rich (cue): outside of battle, the gang always has a little scratch, a little jingle."

The gunlugger in my game picked up a small gang with rich, and I'll open up the next session describing who joined and what her gang is up to (they're people who have survived various attacks, one by the gunlugger herself, and are banding together under her. The player said the PC isn't actively getting them, they're coming to her and she's rolling with it)

Should she be able to get Barter from them, maybe with Pack Alpha if they feel she's taking too much? Pay for her lifestyle? Be able to pay for gigs by the other PCs? Have various arms and armors around (they're 2-Harm 2 armor) to hand out if needed? Or just more in fiction things (I can't have a situation where the members are starving or running out of Barter to pay for essentials because they're rich, the PC doesn't have to worry about taking care of things small amounts of Barter could take care of, or the gang is treated as being rich by the other NPCs?)

Hi guys,

If some of you can read French, I've launched a crowdfunding campaign for Dominion: Games of power & noble Houses, a powered by the Apocalypse (with hints of Blades in the Dark) game.
Inspired by Dune, Birthright or Game of Thrones, it's a game of political intrigue and space fantasy where the PC are the leaders and counselors of a House, struggling against their enemies... and sometimes betraying each others.

It's right here: https://fr.ulule.com/dominion/

Any support will be appreciated :)
It includes a discount pledge for those with a limited game budget.

Cheers!
Dominion

"Way back when, at the genesis of this site, I wrote a “Novice’s Guide to Powered by the Apocalypse”, a Powered by the Apocalypse (PbtA) 101, if you will. This article covered the basic mechanics and underlying assumptions of games written with the PbtA framework, and covered a few of the more popular games that were out at the time. Now, nearly two years later, PbtA is still growing, and has attracted many players to its fiction-forward, high-stakes style of gameplay. I’ve also run and played more PbtA games myself, and have noticed some really interesting elements that people have trouble engaging, take for granted, or even fight against. This 201 course to PbtA games should provide advice and information about getting the most out of the full range of PbtA games and campaigns." - Aaron Marks​
