A discussion panel with RPG designers

At the weekend I ran a Google+ panel as part of RPGGeek's VirtuaCon. It was titled: "Balancing being an (RPG) designer and and still playing a variety of games." The designers were: Simon Phipps (soltakss) Alex Greene (alex_green) John Harper (Blades in the Dark & Lady Blackbird) Grahame Bottley (Ma...

Re: Adding tick-base initiative

Ah, thanks, so it is a bit like RQ2/3 SR, but a bit different. It would probably work OK with Legend, but there might be a mismatch with the number of Combat Actions an Adventurer has. You would need to work out what the initial tick for each weapon is, then work out how many ticks the Adventurer h...

Re: Adding tick-base initiative

White Wolf's Exalted second edition uses tick-based tracking. I found it to be a mixed way to work, part positive and part negative. It can take a while to get used to it but once you have it can be very good. However getting to that point can be tough. To answer soltakss: Typically there are 6 tick...

I've written a short review of HR, which you can find at: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1378772/animal-warfare-or-wow-s-lot-information-read That's a shame about the supplement book, as the threads back in 2012-13 made it sound like you were really excited to be working on it and it wouldn't be l...

Re: Historia Rodentia

Any news on this "second book"? Also, the on the lamb page has missing pages, and a good number of images and linked items on this thread have disappeared. I also wonder - how much extra info is in the "Brushfire Second Edition" rulebook compared to the RPG book? I can't afford the £26 (normally £39...

Re: Spider God's Bride: where are the cultural backgrounds?

To miss out the culture info though, that's something I'd have fixed in a heartbeat on my original writeup if I'd actually have known about it. Will Matthew let you go back and check the entire book for things like this? Maybe then an updated PDF followed by a 2nd print run, could be made? I know t...

Re: Spider God's Bride: where are the cultural backgrounds?

Now, if there is anything else missing we could dig into it, get some official answers from you, Wolf, and make a proper job on an errata!

Re: New for Legend - Sheoloth in Print!

I still plan to proofread the core rulebook, but I'm holding back until such time as the work I've already done (edits to "Cults..." for you gets used....Matt can you say why the pdf hasn't been updated with the edits I sent you ages ago? Kinda puts me off doing any more editing.....which is a shame!

Re: Legend App

You might want to run it by Matt at Mongoose first. I'm not sure what the OGL has to say about computer programs. The Traveller OGL specifically forbids them. I checked the OGL (which I have to say is pretty naff!) and there's no mention of phone/computer programs at all. Basically all it says is t...

Re: Increasing the Distaff Share

I have several female gamers in my Legend: Ancient Stones game over on RPGGeek. In my opinion I think you are worrying needlessly. You can't force people to play a game, be they female, gay, Neanderthal, or a politician. It's almost as crazy as Englands "We don't have enough black people in the poli...
