Stone Cold Killers, Theatre Of The Mind Encounters

Stone Cold Killers, Theatre Of The Mind EncountersPublisher: PPM

The woods to the west of here are a dark and haunted place according to the locals. People who go in rarely come out, except the odd local poacher and they only stick to the edges. There is something living in there that is not natural and you can feel it, sometimes a chill in the air, sometimes a frost rimed tree in the middle of summer.

Theatre Of The Mind Encounters are short adventures, situations or encounters described purely in text. The setting description is kept to a minimum so they could be parachuted as easily into an Arabian Nights campaign just as easily as a Medieval European campaign.

These encounters are system neutral so no game stats, spells are explicitly mentioned and if a character’s profession is mentioned that should be taken to me the actual profession of the ‘living’ person not necessarily the character class of the same name if it exists. By that I mean if I mention a thief then I just mean someone who steals something not an NPC of the thief character class and all the associated skills and abilities. That does not mean that they are not of that class or profession. That is a choice for the DM/GM to make when preparing the encounter for his or her players.

A doctor whose ancestor served aboard the battleship now wants the heroes to sneak aboard and retrieve a sample of the spacer’s DNA to save her dying son. Are the adventurers willing to violate hallowed ground to save the child? Or will the attack on the Dorton claim yet another life?

The Twelve Hundred is a short, no-frills adventure for Cepheus Engine and other tabletop RPG science fiction games using a 2D6 mechanic (including The Original 2D6 Science Fiction Game), and starring characters of varied career backgrounds.

Cybernetics and Augmentations

Paizo - Sat, 06/24/2017 - 19:00

Cybernetics and Augmentations

Saturday, June 24, 2017

A common trope of many science fiction stories is the ability of characters to be able to improve themselves with science, often in the form of cybernetic enhancements. In the Starfinder Core Rulebook, these kinds of augmentations fall into a few broad categories—cybernetics, biotech, and personal upgrades. Cybernetics and biotech are handled using roughly the same rules, while personal upgrades have their own system.

Personal upgrades represent any system—be it technological, magical, or a hybrid of the two—that increases a character's ability scores. Personal upgrades are useful, but not crucial to most character concepts because of how ability score generation and level-based increases are handled. In Starfinder, when a character reaches 5th level, and every 5 levels thereafter, the character increases 4 ability scores of the player's choice. Also if the ability score is a 16 or lower, it increases by +2, while scores of 17 or more increase by +1. This makes it easy for characters to shore up ability scores that turn out to be too low to produce the effect desired in mid-level and high-level play, without forcing a player to decide between improving a key ability score and improving weak ones.

As a result, personal upgrades are kept very simple. Over the course of a character's career, beginning around 3rd level or so, they can buy one personal upgrade that grants a +2 to one ability score, one that grants a +4, and one that grants a +6. It doesn't matter if these are mystic ability crystals, technological synaptic enhancers, or some hybrid system, each character can successfully use only three of them, each at a different level of ability boost.

Cybernetics and biotech work differently, as they come in a wide range of item levels, and can be as simple as gaining a fully function prosthetic limb to replace a lost body part, or as complex as installing a dragon gland that gives you a breath weapon attack. Other forms of augmentation, such as necrografts, are mentioned as existing in the Core Rulebook but don't have full descriptions there. (Hint: keep your eyes on the Adventure Path!) Here's an example of a cybernetic augmentation:

CARDIAC ACCELERATOR SYSTEM: HEART

Price 3,850 credits Level 6

This implant plugs directly into your heart and can be triggered to overclock the performance of your heart and circulatory system. When you run, charge, or take a move action to move, you can spend 1 Resolve Point to increase your speed (in the relevant mode of movement) by 20 feet for that action. This extra movement is treated as an enhancement bonus.

Alternatively, you can spend 1 Resolve Point as a reaction when you attempt a Reflex saving throw to gain a +1 enhancement bonus to your roll.

Each augmentation has a system it replaces or modifies, such as an arm, the throat, or your skin. You can't have more than one augmentation applied to the same system—once you add a dragon gland, you can't also get a vocal modulator installed, as they're both throat system augmentations. The price listed for each augmentation includes the cost of having it professionally installed, which normally takes about an hour per level of the augmentation. While a minimum level of skill is required to do this, there's no check involved—adding augmentations has become a routine outpatient procedure in the universe of Starfinder, with no significant risks of failure or complication. You can also have old augmentations removed or replaced with new options, though since all augmentations are custom built for their specific user, there's no market for used augmentations.

Once implanted, augmentations work just like your natural limbs and organs—a cybernetic arm is no more vulnerable to specific attacks or effects than your natural arm. Adding augmentations is essentially a character design choice: they can be useful, but no character concept requires them in order to be effective.

100 (And More) Female Tagalog First Names

RPGNow - Sat, 06/24/2017 - 18:54
100 (And More) Female Tagalog First NamesPublisher: Azukail Games

The Tagalog language is an Austronesian language that is native to the Philippines, a mostly volcanic island cluster in the western Pacific. It is closely related to the other Philippine languages and more distantly to other languages of the same group, Hawaiian, Maori, Malay and Malagsy. A standardised version of the language, Filipino, is an official language of the islands.

The supplement lists 100 different female Tagalog first names suitable for NPCs and players in a Polynesian or western Pacific inspired setting. The names are listed along with their meanings and alternate spellings, if known.

This PDF supports Adobe layers and the page backgrounds and images can be disabled to make printing easier.

Here is an example from the table:

Name: Idiyanale Meaning: The Tagalog goddess of labour and good deeds.

One page of the supplement is the cover, one the front matter and one the introduction.

NOTE: This is part of the following bundle but there appears to be something wrong with the site and the bundle isn't currently showing. Tagalog First Names Bundle.

If you previously purchased 100 (And More) Male Tagalog First Names, you should have got a discount voucher for this. Again, that doesn't appear to be working; please use the contact link if that's the case.

Weekly Beasties: Black Annis

 Black AnnisPublisher: Gorgon Breath Games

The Black Annis is a Weekly Beastie developed by Gorgon Breath Games! You can support additional monsters through a pay-what-you-want donation, or backing our Patreon. Check out our home page for more details!

Black Annis. In mythology, this name references everything from the mother of hags to one of the first supernatural monsters to walk the physical plane. But whatever truth may be to those legends, the present day reality is much simpler: There is more than one Black Annis.

When any creature with untapped spellcasting potential is reviled and cursed by the community, her magics can react by transforming her into the object of their fears. This process usually leaves the Annis looking like a wizened old crone, but with the strength and speed of a monstrous predator. This transformation pays no mind to the previous alignment of its victim – much to the surprise of angry mobs in pursuit when it occurs.

Sadly, it is often frightened commoners never aware of their spellcasting abilities who suffer the fate of a Black Annis. If the curse is removed, it is possible to rehabilitate a Black Annis back into society, but doing so is often no easy task since she will resist at every turn.

Who's Afraid of the Dark?

Who's Afraid of the Dark?Publisher: Silver Empire Publishing

Little Johnny isn't afraid of the dark. Big boys aren't afraid of the dark - and at five, Little Johnny is a big boy. No, he isn't afraid of the dark. He's afraid of the things that come out in the dark, and what they might do to his baby sister. But his parents don't believe him - so it's up to Johnny to keep her safe, armed only with his toy sword and shield.

About the Tales of Peter Bishop

Peter Bishop had a simple life. He had friends he liked, a church he loved, and a job that he actually kind of enjoyed. He didn’t want much more. Maybe just a nice girl to settle down with. OK, maybe just one specific girl. And then again, maybe she wasn’t as nice as he thought she was. And maybe she wasn’t all that into him, either.

Yes, Peter Bishop had a simple life. Until a demon attacked his town, his friend Michael joined an ancient band of knights, a dragon kidnapped the girl, and a seventy three year old monk gave Peter the sword of an archangel.

Peter’s life is not so simple anymore.

June 24, 2017: Stewart Wieck

Steve Jackson Games - Sat, 06/24/2017 - 13:23
We received news late tonight, as I write this, that Stewart Wieck has passed away at the age of 49. His brother Steve wrote a brief note on the Tenkar's Tavern forum with a few details.

White Wolf was a titan of roleplaying in the 1990s and the early years of this century and its impact is still being felt in today's generation of RPGs.

I'm racing to get this news queued before midnight, and I'm sure we will have more to say about this next week. Stewart deserves more than this brief obituary.

SJ Games extends our sympathy to the Wieck family, to all who knew Stewart, and to the thousands of fans of his work over the last 25-plus years.
