Fellowship: Rebellious Youth (6/10)

Sat, 30 May 2020 00:00:00 -0700

Fellowship: Rebellious Youth (6/10)

Fellowship is a PbtA game by Jacob Randolph about playing a group of heroes fighting to save a fantasy realm, and this game is run using the In Rebellion supplement to tell a story of resistance against an evil Empire. You can purchase the game at https://liberigothica.itch.io/ In this run of the game, I have made a couple of minor hacks to represent young heroes in the vein of She-Ra, Avatar, or The Dragon Prince. This game is run as a part of the Gauntlet Hangouts calendar. Learn more about the Gauntlet online RPG community at https://www.gauntlet-rpg.com/ You can learn more about the Gauntlet produced podcasts, Codex - an RPG zine for indie games from OSR to story games, or sign up for hangout games. Also, check out the forums at https://forums.gauntlet-rpg.com/ to chat and say hi! On their way to find the dragon Grayscale, the rebels (and Kalliban) stop over in the town of Ingot in the Ironspine Mountains. Ossian speak with Mayor Stonecliffe and discovers the miners and steel workers of Ingot may prove brothers-in-arms to the rebellion. Kalliban meets with the Governor in an attempt to discover the truth behind some disturbing rumours. And Phaethon in turn makes an impression on the Governor.

Deep Morphean Transmissions: Operation Undertow (4 of 4)

Dearest Lennie, My, it was quite nostalgic to have a quick chat with yourself. Though I have to say, the company you keep these days leaves a lot to be desired. Why, that Snooker certainly doesn't appreciate fine art like we do, yes? Maybe that boy Katsuo can reign him in. Still, they would have barely contained the situation if not for that rookie of theirs, what was it, Barbara? Whip-smart, that one. As for your dear Bubbles, well I've always said that the best bait is the one made by the mark themselves. Hope to chat again, dearie! C.J.

Their time in Arcadia has changed and twisted them, as they were forced to serve out a durance to their cruel and inhuman masters.

They cannot return to their former lives, and must instead learn to create a new family and find their way in the world.

Through A Mirror Darkly - Second Playtest!

Tue, 26 May 2020 00:00:00 -0700

Through A Mirror Darkly - Second Playtest!

CONTENT WARNING: sci-fi horror tropes, body horror, angels, demons. THROUGH A MIRROR DARKLY is mainly inspired by the sci-fi horror films Event Horizon and Solaris, with some key genre and aesthetics from the Alien trilogy and Sunshine. This game is currently in playtest, but it will be released next month! Our premise is that a crew has been tasked to board the Palantir, a mysterious ship that has been missing for years. But the crew will bring with them what haunts them, and the horrors of the Palantir will feed upon the dark emotions of our crew. In this GM-less game that is based on the Belonging Outside Belonging system, players create and strengthen the horrors they will face. If they decide their character dies, they then become a part of the Palantir, as it becomes more sentient and evil. In this playtest we explore fallen angels and timeline shenanigans! This game is part of the Gauntlet Hangouts, where folks play tabletop roleplaying games together. We focus on indie games, story games, and OSR! To find out more visit: https://www.gauntlet-rpg.com/gauntlet-hangouts.html This game is currently being playtested but will be released soon. If you would like early access to the game, get it at a big discount, or generally support me as a game creator, please consider becoming a patron! https://www.patreon.com/swordqueengames You can find more of my games here: https://temporalhiccup.itch.io/

Hearts of Wulin: Measure of the Soul (4/8)

Tue, 26 May 2020 00:00:00 -0700

Hearts of Wulin: Measure of the Soul (4/8)

In this series we are playing HEARTS OF WULIN! Specifically we are playing the Supernatural playset, one of the unlocked stretch goals from the kickstarter! Hearts of Wulin is a game of melodrama. While fighting happens and duels break out, they occur because of longings, thwarted desires, and terrible duties. In a melodrama, reactions and responses are heightened, nothing is simple, and there’s always something at stake. You express and communicate through fighting, revealing things through those struggles. This session is purely a character generation one. Making characters is fun and easy in Hearts of Wulin, but it can take a long while as we dive into entanglements! This is part of the Gauntlet Hangouts! You can join us and play ttrpgs online, we focus on indie games, story games, OSR, and more! Find out more at: https://www.gauntlet-rpg.com/gauntlet-hangouts.html You can find out more about Hearts of Wulin here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gauntlet/hearts-of-wulin/description I'm currently working on my own game, Apocalypse Keys (inspired by Hellboy!) that takes great inspiration from the mechanics and flow of Hearts of Wulin! To keep track of the game you can follow me on itchio, or support me on Patreon to get a peek! Sword Queen Games: https://temporalhiccup.itch.io/ Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/swordqueengames
