It's rough and unfinished, but it's got some cool ideas, I think. The game and some comments are included... I'll polish them up a bit when I get the chance. Ah, nostalgia.
Okay, so this is a long post about my first impressions of Dreamation... I kinda come off like a schoolgirl with a crush who's not sure the guy she likes is into her... So, be warned!
Okay, a few of us NoVa/Game Parlor rpgers are doing an rpg design/Game Chef kinda thing, which should be fun! I've stalled out on Dog/Fight and Armament for now, but I'm not running from them or anything... just taking a break while I do some actual playing of rpgs!!!
Also, I've run DRYH now, and I likes it quite a bit. So of course, now I have to hack it! I'm working on a superpowers hack, with the focus being on group-created consequences of having powers. Little more fiddly than DRYH, but hopefully not too much... We'll see. I'm changing the mechanics a bit, too so I call on all of the powers of the internet to point out my flaws! (In the game design, that is... Ah, what the heck, feel free to point out personal flaws, but I'm not sure Livejournal will allow lists that long!) Feel free to comment as soon as I post some actual material, hopefully later this week!
Okay, let's see if I can at least upload an image of the character sheet...
Okay, here in no particular order other than stream of consciousness are the rules for Dog/Fight as they came to me in my semi-conscious state. First is the character sheet, since that's kinda what came to me first... then the rules. Note, though, that anything underlined is either something that contradicted something else in the rules (remember, half-asleep!) or something I added in thought about later.
Okay, here goes! Hmmm... Well, you have to imagine a line down the middle of the sheet... Maybe there's some way I can embed a word doc?
Okay, so I've got a hole being burned in my brain by a couple of ideas right now. In hopes of alleviating some of the pressure, I figured I'd put them out in the world for everyone to look at and help with, if they feel so inclined.
I do a lot of playing around with design and mechanics for rpgs. There are two things I’ve got right now; Flags and an rpgish idea.
Anyway, those are some thoughts…
