Errant - A Game of Misguided Heroics and Heroic Misadventures

RPGNow - Mon, 08/20/2018 - 13:10
Errant - A Game of Misguided Heroics and Heroic MisadventuresPublisher: Cloud Monster Press

About the Game

Errant is a tabletop / pen­and­paper storytelling and roleplaying game about quixotic, self­styled heros and their quixotic adventures and / or misadventures in a world where their gallant labors may or may not actually be needed or appreciated. It usually takes two or more players (one of whom will take on the role of Game Master), some paper, writing utensils, and a handful of six sided dice (or a digital die roller) to play.

Merriam­Webster defines quixotic as follows: "foolishly impractical, especially in the persuit of ideals; especially: marked by rash lofty ideas or extravagantly chivalrous action." The word itself derives from a popular piece of 17th century Spanish literature, the title of which translates to "The Ingenious Nobleman Sir Quixote of La Mancha," written by Miguel de Cervantes. While Errant owes that storied and influential tome a hefty debt of gratitude, it does not seek to simulate it in any direct fashion. Errant is not really "Don Quixote, the roleplaying game" as much as it is a quixotic, light­hearted take on sword, sorcery, and adventure stories. Ultimately, it focuses on the surface elements of the "self­appointed hero" trope and leaves the depth and social commentary up to the discretion of players and GMs.

Errant allows for a world in which "actual magic" is possible (if a GM wants to avoid magic, they can simply disallow the Arcana Quality at character creation), and makes no explicit assumptions about illusions, delusions, or the mental health of its heroes (ableism is bad, actually, so tread lightly). Whether they are tilting at windmills or at actual giants, said heroes may be prone to accidents, incidents, and misunderstandings. They may be flawed in a variety of ways. But they are, ultimately, motivated by a thirst for justice, adventure, and/or the pursuit of what they perceive as noble ideals.

GM's Maps #61: Sorority House

RPGNow - Mon, 08/20/2018 - 12:37
GM's Maps #61: Sorority HousePublisher: Gethsemane Games

Map making can be time-consuming and sometimes frustrating for GMs, especially GMs with limited time to begin with. In our new 'GM's Maps' range, we will be providing a range of pre-made maps for you to use in your games.

What secrets are kept behind the doors of the Sorority houses of campus? Rumours that their rituals are more than harmless hazing and ceremony have always circulated, but surely those are just the jealous words of those who couldn't get in... aren't they? That is just one of the many questions that your players can seek answers for with this addition tot he GMs maps range! Have your PCs investigate the sorority house or use it as a base of operations for female undergraduate PCs. This map is flexible and can be the site of a surprising range of adventures, the occupants may be friend, foe or indifferent.

Included in this product, as well as the map of the 4 floor (Plus basement) sorority house you will find a number of adventure hooks and plot ideas for the GM to use if they wish.

Some examples:

3/. Blood Moon (Horror)

Sandra hasn't been the same since her hiking holiday with Mitch. Now, every month, on the full moon, her sorority sisters have to chain her in the basement and wait for the change to pass. They always buy enough raw meat to keep her wolf form fed. This month though, something has gone wrong and Sandra is loose in the building. Can her sisters survive long enough to get her back under control? Or will they flee the house, letting her escape and wreak havoc across the campus?

6/. It's all Greek To Me (Mystery)

Someone keeps sending the girls at the sorority house emails with strange puzzles and riddles in them. Whenever anyone cracks one it leads to some clue or fragment of information that seems to have some importance although what it is no one seems certain – yet. Can the characters crack the code and solve the puzzles? What does it all mean? And what is the ultimate secret that will be revealed?

7/. Crime Syndicate (Crime/Mystery)

There have been a number of audacious crimes around the town lately and evidence is beginning to point to a band of students from the local university. Hidden inside the sorority house are a small gang of girls who have discovered a penchant for crime. Cheerleaders who have turned their acrobatic abilities into a way to get past high security or to enter tall buildings unseen, coupled with some of the more computer literate girls who help disarm security cameras and override keypad locks.

    Big Bang Shootout: Stopping Power II: Taylor Knockout Factor

     Taylor Knockout FactorPublisher: Alternate Realities Publications

    Here, we take another step into the confusing science of ballistics. With centuries of development that even predate the Industrial Revolution AND the Renaissance, it is still an area of expertise filled with more than a little opinion.

    This is another take on the idea of firearms stopping power and one of the particular methods developed for its quantification: The Taylor Knockout Factor. First published in 1948, this was one of the first attempts by a gun-enthusiast-but-nowhere-near-trained-as-a-scientist to quantify the concept that more than 20 years later would evolve into the idea of "stopping power." Here we have provided the data and formula necessary to make use of the concept in your game design.

    Dragon Reign - The Lonely Spire at Westviolet

    A Ready to Roll module for Dragon Reign, a Forged from GRAM saga of classic fantasy and dungeoneering set to a backdrop of political drama where the ruling body isn’t unanimously supported.

    The Loney Spire is a dungeon -- one that you crawl up instead of down -- and it’s full of orcs that have no business being close to town and have no rights to the property or the items contained within. It’s as straightforward as stories get in the GRAM Role-Playing Game but sometimes that exactly what you want from a tabletop experience, a beer-and-pretzels light-hearted adventure where everyone wins and there isn’t a lot of drama to serve as a break from the regular campaign or as a bit of escapism when you haven’t had as much time to game. Dragon Reign is definitely more of a hack-and-slash setting, but GRAM’s focus on fun over combat simulation should keep rules lawyering to a minimum as the combat encounters are interesting without being tedious, and there will be some great role-playing opportunities for the players as they evoke their character qualities and highlight allegiances outside of the adventuring party for their own personal gain. So pour a drink, warm up your dice, and have a great time with friends!

    Ready to Roll!

    The Ready to Roll series is a line of all-inclusive products, where each module contains the setting information, scenario, and pre-created Iconic characters, so that you can quickly prepare for a session even if you're unfamiliar with the GRAM Role-Playing Game or inexperianced with RPGs in general. All you need is one of these scenarios and the short copy of the rules and you're ready to start!

    This product only contains the scenario content, and requires the Ready to Roll - Rules & References product to play! About The GRAM Role-Playing Game

    Named after Odin's sword, the GRAM Role-Playing Game focuses on telling narrative-focused sagas worthy of the eddas.

    • The game mechanics are easy to understand as both a player and as a GM and math has been minimized as much as possible making it ideal for younger audiences and players who are new to the hobby. Players need only a single twenty-sided die, a character sheet, and a one page reference sheet to have everything they need (and never need the rule book), the GM also has a second reference sheet and shares a deck of playing cards with the table.

    • Characters are built as a personality first, statblock second and are created by selecting from a diverse range of abilities instead of structured classes that highlight teamwork, utility, and alternative problem-solving paths which allows and encourages players to bring their unique concept to life, from sniper-mages to rap gods to sentient barrelfolk.

    • Players earn rewards for invoking their character concepts such as quirks and relationships which lends to players staying more in character, interacting with their party, and participating in the story and less time metagaming and rules-lawyering.

    • The game engine and the characters are created to be flexible and adapt as play progresses; characters can evolve and their character sheet changed. There are no strict archetypes forming a dedicated path to power or destiny and no one way to ”win.”

    • Conflict is resolved through competitions which are fast paced and engaging, using a deck of playing cards. There is no dedicated set of skills, but attribute tests using twenty-sided dice against static numbers or compared to an opponent’s roll when opposed. These options come into play more frequently than combat, which when it does happen takes place on a grid and is quickly but tactically resolved.

    • Creativity is encouraged for players and GMs with customization suggested in the form of tips and tricks from the development team on how to make the game your own from renaming and tweaking abilities to borrowing from pop culture, and including anecdotes about real-play experiences.

    • Over 27 different campaign sagas have been played to date, from classic fantasy to near-modern horror; from contemporary modern day to far-reaching sci-fi. This includes both original campaigns and “fanfiction” mock ups of worlds from popular shows, movies, and books. These have all been detailed to provide options to get started and inspiration for you to build your own worlds!
