"The Quest of the Claw" RPG Comic Issue 4

RPGNow - Sun, 08/19/2018 - 22:19
Publisher: Friends of Eldoria

In 1983 I was a bright and wide-eyed individual and was new to the work force and the curious hobby of role-playing games. I became a founding member of a Brisbane-based club called Queensland Role Players (QRP) and, when the club committee discovered I could draw, I was asked to create a mascot for QRP and came u with a young apprentice wizard called QuRP.

Many months after drawing QuRP I began to wonder what his back story might be if he was an RPG character (you could see I had no life) and this led to me writing “Quest of the Claw” a comic tale set in my fantasy world of ‘Eldoria”. QOTCt poked fun at Dungeons and Dragons and some of the antics of the players I was running games for at that time – my younger brother Stephen and good friend Steven Twine exist in the pages of the comic.

QOTC was featured in a club newsletter and later published in the student guild newspaper of the Queensland University of Technology. It was the first thing related to role-playing that I ever got paid for. After its appearance in the student paper it vanished into my archives and it was only recently that an old friend of mine, Wesley Kublick (whom I had not seen for over 30 years) visited Brisbane and asked if I had ever done anything with QOTC. Wes was always been a keen comic fan and he still remembered QuRP and his adventures after all these years.

So…encouraged by Wes’s praise of QOTC, I delved into my filing cabinets and dusted off the original sheets I had penned the comic on all those years ago in order to serialize it once again for a new generation of role-playing fans. I hope you enjoy it.

Infinite Space: Familiar Magic (SFRPG)

RPGNow - Sun, 08/19/2018 - 17:36
 Familiar Magic (SFRPG)Publisher: LPJ Design

In ancient times, a spellcaster could call upon a small animal or other creature to serve as their familiar. The familiar functioned as the spellcaster’s eyes and ears and constant companion. This practice became so common that, eventually, the presence of a familiar became synonymous with those who used magic. Now, thanks to a combination of sorcery and technology, spellcasters have rediscovered the benefits of a familiar. Here is a new spell, find familiar, to add to the spell lists of both the mystic and the technomancer, followed by eight types of familiars for a caster to summon. Each familiar offers its own benefits and special abilities. Unlike the old ways, a modern spellcaster no longer uses a living animal to serve as a familiar, but rather creates one out of magically conjured materials and components.

This sourcebook contains Familiar Types:

  • Akashic Tome - This familiar appears like a thick, leather-bound book stuffed full of pages of different sizes. When consulted or asked a question, it opens itself and flips through its pages. This familiar is linked to the Akashic record and has access to this treasure trove of knowledge.

  • Ectoplasmic Emanation - This translucent blob of ectoplasm has a wicked sense of humor and enjoys causing mischief and mayhem. It is ideally suited for collecting or stealing small, handheld objects.

  • Empathic Dove - A pulse of magical light solidifies into the form of a dove or similar bird-like creature. The empathic dove picks up on the emotions and surface thoughts of nearby creatures, while also helping its caster maintain peace and mediate disputes.

  • Gremlin - From a distance, a gremlin resembles an oddly misshapen and shrunken goblin. Only up close can one see that it actually consists of a swarm of buzzing, swirling nanobots.

  • Hologrammatic Spider - Formed by a series of highly nimble force fields, this hard-light hologram looks like a spindly arachnid suffused with a pale amber glow. It is adept at treating injuries and assisting a physician in caring for the sick and the wounded.

  • Quicksilver Globe - This familiar resembles a fist-sized sphere of mercury with cat-like eyes. It functions as a useful—and difficult to detect—spy for observing or collecting information.

  • Scavenger Bot - Cobbled from seemingly random pieces of broken technology, this machine is surprisingly sturdy despite its homely appearance. It excels at scavenging technological parts and components and repurposing them for other uses.

  • Serpentine Code - While this familiar resembles a two-foot length of cable or bundled wire, it moves and writhes like a snake. It excels at slipping inside computers and other technological systems to grant its caster enhanced access. When penetrating or while inside a computer, it exists as electrical energy and lines of code rather than in solid form.

August 19, 2018: Super Munchkin In Luke Cage!

Steve Jackson Games - Sun, 08/19/2018 - 12:24
Superheroes are all the rage nowadays, and apparently Super Munchkin has become part of the MCU! Fans of Netflix's Luke Cage pointed out that our game can be seen in the opening of episode 3 during a fight. Sweet Christmas! Check it out (but be aware, it's pretty graphic). I know Munchkin is known for its conflict, but I feel like this was a bit of an overreaction. Maybe next time, they should play Zombie Dice or something. 

Super Munchkin

You can check out all the different versions of Super Munchkin at your local game store or Warehouse 23. Also look for Munchkin: Marvel Edition, as well as Munchkin Marvel 2, which features Luke Cage himself!

Path to The Gnome's Argosy

Path to The Gnome's ArgosyPublisher: Ramen Sandwich Press

A small merchant ship called The Gnome's Argosy has crashed against a jagged reef just outside the major port city for which it was bound. The merchant who owns the cargo is willing to hire adventurers to recover an item of great value from the wreck, but a band of skum claim the site as part of their territory. If your party takes the job, they'll find that the situation is more complicated than they were led to believe, but on the other hand, they'll also find a segue to Found by the Way #03: Path to Oyster Cove, if they want to follow it. You can also run this module as a stand-alone, if you prefer.

Path to The Gnome's Argosy is published under the terms of the open license for Pathfinder RPG. It does not specify a particular campaign setting, and it is written to allow you to integrate it into your own campaign world by filling in various details.

Found by the Way is a series of short modules created by veteran RPG writer and developer Douglas Sun for use with Pathfinder RPG First Edition (Ramen Sandwich Press will continue to support them going forward by making available for free conversion notes for Pathfinder Second Edition, if necessary). Think of them as glittering mosaic tiles that you can drop into a campaign to provide your player characters with diverting side quests and memorable interludes while they follow the overall story arc. They help you keep your players energized and entertained — and maybe they'll even level up and upgrade their gear — while you press the Pause button on your larger campaign.

Modifier GeneratorPublisher: Ken Wickham

quickly, first, similarly ...

This table shows modifier categories with 12 or more modifiers for each category including degree, time, contrast, unity, manner, cause-and-effect, and place words.

This is a flexible modifier generator that is meant to aid or take the place of a Gamemaster (GM) for modifying descriptions or actions of characters, creatures, objects, places, and things. They modify how, when, or why something is described or does something.

A 12x12 table optimized for 1d12 but with results for 2D6, 1D20, 3D6, and D100 (percentile) systems is included. It makes it a versatile description generating engine.

The keywords are meant to help trigger thoughtful and inspirational ideas. Its generic enough for any genre.

Included are a total 144 listed modifiers in the entire table.

They may be used in writing, solo gaming, or to aid a GM in showing character mood descriptions.

It is intended to be a paid upgrade to work with all the other generators including the Solog Fact Generator, Description Generator, Mood-Emotion Generator, Sound Generator, Character Generator, Motivation Generator, Plot Generator, Knowledge Generator, Plot Generator, Body Language Generator, Solo Engine or Dialogue Engine or be used separate to add one or more modifier to story or game settings.

2 pages: It's first page is the image shown on the cover thumbnail —  the instructions and example — and the second page is the chart turned longways 144 results.

This differs from the fact generator in that the results are completely focused on modifier words rather than including other sensory or cognitive results.
