We're in the last three days of Kaigaku, and things are picking up again. We'd love any signal boosts that y'all can manage!
A high-drama samurai RPG where noble courtiers, devious ninja, heroic ascetics and mighty bushi all clash for the glory of their clan.

Have someone special in your life you wish would play TRPGs? A spouse? A sibling? A significant other? A friend? A parent? Here's my tips for asking someone special to join the game! https://worldbuilderblog.me/2016/09/29/introducing-that-special-someone-to-dd/
Your spouse. Your best friend. Your significant other. Your parent. Your sibling. Your cousin. Have you ever wished someone close to you would give Dungeons and Dragons (or any tabletop RPG) a try?…

Here is a RPG system I found easy to learn and quick to use. Especially for cliffhanger styled games.

is there much in the way of variant rules, or add on rules? Like adding injury rules, or slow healing rules, etc (I dont know what the base system already has)

"It would be easy to say that I love it because you can run any game in Rifts that you can imagine. This is true but that is not why I love this setting. You will hear people say that the setting is gonzo and over the top but it doesn't have to be. The story is what you and your play group make it out to be. It can be as balanced as you want by restricting some of the more extreme OCC's at either end of the power scale. None of this is what I love about the setting though."

+Matthew Bottiglieri posted this in the private A Sundered World group. Reposting (with permission) because the other group is private and you can't reshare or change it to public (really wish I could...):

Just ran my first Sundered World campaign. It included a god in the form of a living library; a warlock whose patron is a shattered god personified as a pair of praying hands with a glowing eye in the center. The cambion became this forgotten god's patron after his legion's ship was destroyed by dark elf marauders.

The t'pual became a nomad after his divine library was destroyed by thulids aspiring to drain its knowledge.

Both characters are tasked with bringing their gods back to life. The nomad carries a shard of the living library, which he must cultivate once again to resurrect his god. The cambion looks for fragments of his patron as well.

The PCs determined that the characters met in a way station and decided to travel together in a sky ship bequeathed to them by the warlock's patron. They game started with the PCs landing upon the belly of massive, dead spider god impaled by a spear with a city carven up its length. They visited this unknown fragment at the behest of the cambion's patron. They were tasked with locating a curio shop made of tongues nestled somewhere within Mort Tanis, to either purchase or steal a vial containing the ash of a cleric who once worshipped the warlock's patron.

Before they reached Mort Tanis, their ship was stolen by dark elf drones; they fought a trio of slavering hounds; they revealed a nefarious plot to murder a Winter Court elf residing within the spear city of Mort Tanis.

Once they visited the city, they conversed with bipedal arachnids and were able to determine that the curio shop was located on the Avenue of Moths. When they reached the location, they stopped and chatted with an elf selling cloud spiders, as well its hallucinogenic venom. The cambion purchased some of the venom and asked the elf to translate a note that they discovered on one of the dark elf thieves.

The letter described a plot murder a winter elf emissary residing somewhere within Mort Tanis. That is where we left off. I love the setting. I love the rules, too. My players definitely love the setting, but they're struggling to wrap their heads around Dungeon World. Thankfully, they're quite accommodating, and are eager to forge ahead.

I usually always furnish my interior structure maps, but here's a tavern map where I left it unfurnished. I call it the Blue Ox Inn, with colored stones showing it's emblem on the floor. Ready for your home game. This was for a commission that didn't pan out.

I'm Kickstarting Blade Bind, a storygame of sword-powered tragedy, until October 27th! Apologies to those who are in multiple RPG communities and have seen this already; I'm trying to space it out a bit now so I don't create a solid wall of posts! :P

It's a hyper-focussed storygame about conflicting goals and the struggle between power and control. It's GMless, designed for one-shots, and uses a deck of regular playing cards to resolve epic swordfights!

Characters are known as the Chosen – people with strong motivations, who have forged pacts with ancient supernatural Blades. The Blade promises the power to achieve your goals, but should you falter on the path it will not hesitate to seize control and use you as the instrument of its own vengeance!

If it sounds like your kind of thing, please take a look or let me know if you have any questions.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/546164579/blade-bind-a-storygame-of-sword-powered-tragedy
Aim for victory while struggling to maintain control in this intense card-based duelling tabletop RPG!

* Alyeskan Tales: Fool's Errand Part 2*

Part Two of the Alyeskan Tales: Fool's Errand series.

In the first instalment the players were commissioned by the crime boss Ferret to retrieve an item from a ghost town out in the Wulflands. Though despite finding the item in question the players will return empty handed, leaving their employer less than impressed.
