ILLL - Intergalactic Lucha Libre League

Wed, 06/21/2017 - 16:31
ILLL - Intergalactic Lucha Libre LeaguePublisher: Playing Hero World

INTERGALACTIC LUCHA LIBRE LEAGUE
The Super Powered Wrestling Adventure/Simulator!

Intergalactic Lucha Libre League is a game about creating shared stories and universe with your friends. It's not about how many dice you roll for that Slam, but when, why and how your character lifted up his rival. It's the classic good and evil struggle told inside of a ring.
In Intergalactic Lucha Libre League, there are two ways of making said struggle happen.

One player will play the role of the "Intergalactic Booker", set up matches and non-wrestling segments, create feuds, set up schemes and build the stage for the Playing Characters to shine. Those characters can be generated randomly or created by the players themselves, picking one of the four Space Races and Wrestling Classes and further customize their characters by selecting traits and Movesets that set them apart from the competition as well developing their unique signature and finisher moves.

The "Showtime" section of the book is all about gimmick matches, creating your own federation, your own belts, or using pre-existing federations sprinkled into the Solar System.

However, the action is not limited to the ring! In their quest for fame, Sports Adventures may happen between shows - Or as the main attraction! While the wrestlers cannot feed off the live crowd, they can still feel their Shinning Guts tensing up as their social media feed fills up of encouraging messages as they body slam Space Dragons into volcanoes.

There is even a way of simulating matches between non-playable characters (meaning an Intergalactic Booker can keep tabs on the career of the Playing Characters rivals and friends) as well a "Soft Intergalactic Booker" mode that allows players to take turns setting up matches and playing minor characters, crafting a shared universe one powerbomb at a time.

The System

The mechanics of the game use a skeleton of the Open Game License, close to the old d20 System.
However, many things were simplified, altered or flat out cut to make the experience as simple and as fast as possible.

The main meat of the game, the mechanic that justifies the existence of Intergalactic Lucha Libre League is the HYPE Factor system. In which every action in a match generates HYPE from the crowd, feeding the wrestler to power through pain, hit harder or even finish the match with their Finisher maneuver.

Interviews, promo segments, sneak attacks and even begging to the Booker to change their upcoming match are all done in simple skill rolls, made that way to keep the action moving. A full show with four players shouldn't take much more than 3 hours, or a regular gaming evening to run through. Of course, all those actions tie together with the HYPE factor.

Creating a character is as simple as picking one of the four Space Races, one of the four Classes, picking some of the movesets (which are restricted by classes), picking one character trait and defining the names and which body parts get damaged by your signature move and finisher.

Leveling up is all about career milestones. If your wrestler saved a town from Anti-Violence Bikers who protest against wrestling, he might go up a level. If he manages to defend his title against three different opponents, he might go up a level as well. Only those who have a storied career get stronger!

Game Features

- Two different ways of playing that can overlap: The traditional "Sports Adventure" and the wrestling show simulator "Showtime"
- Random character generation - Or pick and choose between space races, wrestling classes and bone crunching movesets
- In-ring combat that is all about being creative with your offense and using the HYPE from the crowd for special maneuvers and momentum shifts.
- Feuds are not only encouraged, they are allowed... By the Fame point system. Feud your way to stardom.
- Cheat in character, just be careful not to be caught by the referee!
- Use illegal foreign weapons - Heck, use your own enemy as a weapon to clobber another enemy.
- Special rules to deal with mobs of jobber wrestlers. No time for jabronis!
- Play a show with multiple players in about 3 hours. Build up to big shows where feuds are decided in gimmick matches.

Things That Went Wrong While You Were AwayPublisher: Up to Four Players

While you were away all sorts of things went wrong. The King was assassinated and the council of merchants now rules the town, your family was banished to the sewers, and that unused magical sword you sold to the item shop is revealed to be cursed and haunted, and now its new owner wishes to take over the world. What can we say, an adventurer’s life is always filled with, well, adventures.

When the heroes return to a known location, every change in the status quo helps impart the sense that the world is a dynamic place and things evolve even without the characters’ presence.

From its very beginnings, the idea of the Mythos has pervaded role-playing gaming to one extent or another, overtly influencing innumerable authors, developers, and game masters. At its core, the idea behind the Mythos is that there is a vast body of pre-human — even alien in the most fundamental sense — history, science, and cosmology, that people periodically perceive glimpses of these cosmic horrors, that those who do quickly find ways to rationalize or forget about them, and that those who seek to delve into them suffer madness, death, or fates even worse.

d-Infinity Volume #6 Contents
Editorial: “The Mythos”
Fiction: “Their Blood Is the Sea”
Digital Dice: “Mobile Apps”
Prop Room: “The Allure of Innsmouth Gold”
Cthulhu Live: “The Ageless”
Swords of Kos Fantasy Campaign Setting: “Heroes and Heroines of Kos”
Basic System/Labyrinth Lord: “Six Mythos Spells”
Basic System/Mutant Future: “Artifacts of the Wastelands”

Ultimate Cartomancy

Tue, 06/20/2017 - 19:04
Ultimate CartomancyPublisher: Interjection Games

The Flavor

We are born, and we die. Between these two events, fate is surprisingly malleable. Sadly, these endpoints are what draw the most attention. Thousands of spellcasters seek to "cheat death" or "play god", all the while ignoring just how much power every other point on the timeline of a life happens to have.

Rather than claim to manipulate the endpoints of fate, a particular brand of divine spellcaster known as cartomancers play around in the delightfully squishy center of the lifeline. Here, fate really doesn't care what happens, and all sorts of crazy things can be brought into being.

 

The Process

1: When making a new cartomancer, choose the classic deck or the deathdealer deck. These cards are your collection.

2: Using your collection, build an active deck made of least, lesser, and greater portents.

3: Your hand is drawn from your active deck, but if you don't like your hand, you can discard cards to power seals, a limited resource that reduces the random nature of cards by giving you a number of deterministic "outs" per day.

 

Modular Customization

A: Using the Three Card Monty feat, build one or more three-card minidecks that can be unleashed whenever you need their effects.

B: Take the Multitudes of Fate feat to add one least portent and one lesser portent from the Multitudes of Fate deck to your collection. These cards aren't found anywhere else!

 

Product Features

  • 2 base classes, the in-your-face wildcard and the classic spellcaster cartomancer
  • 3 wildcard archetypes: ace, dealer, and joker
  • 2 cartomancer archetypes: taleweaver and shyster
  • The 78-card "classic" deck, a roll-manipulating set of abilities with a focus on big combo turns, situational power plays, and portents that are more powerful when played alongside big portents
  • The 78-card "deathdealer" deck, which focuses on raw damage, debilitation, and both the suddenness and patience of death with special mechanics that reward playing some portents as soon as they are drawn or putting other portents in front of you to build power as a trigger repeatedly occurs
  • The 8-card "multitudes of fate" deck, which gives eight unique options that can be mixed into the classic or deathdealer decks
  • 21 pages of print-and-play cards
  • Dozens of feats that allow for extensive deckbuilding customization
  • Tables that allow you to run your cartomancer with a poker deck if you forget your print-and-play deck

Streets of Zobeck for 5th Edition

Tue, 06/20/2017 - 16:48
Streets of Zobeck for 5th EditionPublisher: Kobold Press

A Collection of Dark and Daring Adventures for 5th Edition

What happens when adventurers become the owners of a brothel? When a roguish associate asks them to attend an oligarch's masquerade in his place? What lurks in the Cartways besides kobolds? And what will you say when another thief tells you the only way to find a treasure is to become hunted by the Praetors? 


Dark dealings, my boys, and a knife in the guts might be the price. Whose guts? Might be yours if you cross the wrong one of the Nine.

This 112-page supplement and adventure anthology is set in the seedy underbelly of the Free City of Zobeck, and includes:

  • 7 adventures dealing with underhanded themes, shady locations, and double-crossing deals gone wrong
  • 6  detailed locales from the Cartways Market Gallery to the Old Stross Municipal Baths
  • A dirty dozen NPCs like kobold gearsmiths, failed Arcane Collegium students, barge captains, fey and undead ambassadors to use as rivals, patrons, peers and foes
  • A sampling of new clockworks, street magics and odd enchantments that make Zobeck the distinctive jewel of the River Argent!

You probably shouldn't bring the paladin along on this one...

This official Midgard adventure anthology for levels 1 to 10 is easily portable to any city setting. Pick up your copy today!

Satanic Panic: Playtest Documents

Tue, 06/20/2017 - 16:27
 Playtest DocumentsPublisher: Third Act Publishing
Happy Free RPG Day! We offer the playtest documents for Satanic Panic.

People whisper in hushed tones about a corruption taking hold in the world. A secret wildfire spreading from basement to basement called tabletop. Some say it is evil, some say it is turning their kids into monsters, and some say it is summoning demons.

…and every whisper rings true.

Tabletop is bringing evil into the world and turning people into monsters and you are one of the few that stand against this evil. You can stop tabletop.

Satanic Panic is a tabletop roleplaying game set in the fictional 1970’s and 1980’s where players take on the role of secret government agents tasked with combating the evils of tabletop. The players work as a team with the common purpose to contain, control, and eliminate the threats to our world. They must do all this while keeping the truth from the public, lest a panic ensue.

The game will be a 200-page hardcover book with everything needed for a GM and 2-6 players. It is designed so that the game can be played as a traditional RPG campaign or can be played in an episodic fashion with different numbers and arrangements of players. Satanic Panic brings modern game design principles to traditional tabletop game play. It gives the players all the power they need to fight against the forces of evil while making their every decision have long term consequences.

Join us in the fight against evil, join us in the fight against tabletop.

The Kickstarter is over but you can still watch for updates or find other resources on Kickstarter. We also have a link for pre-ordering through the Third Act Store on there.
