Aerineya: The Traveller's Roost Tavern

It didn't take long for entrepreneurs to arrive in the floating kingdom of Aerineya. Once adventurers and wizards began to venture into the sky in search of ancient treasures, various quick thinking landlords recognised that they would need somewhere to rest up there, and so various taverns were constructed. The Traveller's Roost is one such tavern, and is a welcome sight after days in a small airship.

Included:

A pdf with 300dpi gridded tiles ready for A4 printing

A set of 300dpi full size jpeg files, for poster printing

Niti’s Parade & Other Entertainments aka All About Carnivals and FairesPublisher: Board Enterprises

    How fun is your game world?  Not when everybody is killing monsters, but once they get back to the city.  OK, there’s a tavern, and shopping, but is there any fun?

    After the amount of work you’ve put into all of the permanent things in your world, you probably haven’t put the amount of work into the temporary things, things like circuses, trade fairs, carnivals, and local fairs.  And since you probably won’t be putting that much work into them, we did it for you.  It’s all here, the circuses, the acts, the food, the games, the fun!  OK, and some of the business of them as well.

    If you’re looking for a ton of new ideas, ideas you can easily use in your existing game world or use to craft a new game world, then Small Bites is what you’re looking for.  Our goal is to take a subject, whether an archetype, a monster class, or some other FRPG theme and bring you as much content about it as we can.  But this isn’t a simple one-shot supplement.  We want to get you involved in the process - giving us the themes you want most, the articles you like the best, and the feedback we need to make you happy.

    This is the “World Walker” edition.  The Game Master edition gives you even more, including ideas about campaigns, enemy characters, and world building.  We know that veteran and starting players and game masters are all going to find things they can use, and ideas to spark their characters, campaigns and game worlds!  Come on - You’ve got nothing to lose!

    This supplement contains 16 pages of content, compared to the full version which contains 74 pages.

Room Name Generator

RPGNow - Sat, 08/18/2018 - 12:22
Room Name GeneratorPublisher: Azukail Games

This is a generator consisting of three d100 tables that can be used to generate unusual names for rooms, whether these be found in dungeons, castles or other locations. These names can be used to add a degree of pretension for a certain type of NPC, make a location more evocative or perhaps create ideas for an otherwise empty room.

The three tables can be used in a number of different ways. Results can be combined from Table 1 and Table 2, from Table 2 and Table 3, from Tables 1, 2 and 3 or from Table 1, Table 2, Table 1 and Table 3. Filler words such as "the," "of" and "of the" should be used to combine the results, and many results have plurals and some have alternatives. Results that don't make sense should be discarded.

Here are room names generated using the four described methods:

"The Infinite Mausoleum"

"The Cistern of Plagues"

"The Crumbling Barrow of the Vampires"

"The Shattered Kennel of the Diabolic Golems"

The tables can be used in more ways, by rolling more times on each.

Bokar and His Wondrous Wagon

RPGNow - Sat, 08/18/2018 - 12:20
Bokar and His Wondrous WagonPublisher: Azukail Games

Bokar and His Wondrous Wagon describes an NPC, Bokar, and his wagon. Bokar is a travelling trader, low level spell user, liar and thief, and his wagon has many surprises. It may resemble a cross between a gypsy wagon and a travelling tinker's, and certainly has a varied stock of items, but there are many secrets hidden within the wagon which will prove much harder for a bandit to take then such might think.

Two maps of Bokar's wagon are included, at 1 square = 1 foot scale, one with labels for the GM, one without.

This is aimed at d100 systems but is generic enough in nature to be adapted to others.

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

One page is the cover, one the front matter, one page is ads and two pages have the maps of the wagon.

The Meaning of Skill

Fantasy Flight Games - Sat, 08/18/2018 - 06:23
Published 17 August 2018 | Legend of the Five Rings RPG The Meaning of Skill

Preview Skill Checks in Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying

Order your own copy of the Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying Core Rulebook at your local retailer or online through our website today!

In the land of Rokugan, adventure awaits you. War, intrigue, and arcane mysteries will beset your journey, but you are not without power. In Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying, your samurai’s skills, ambition, and honor will guide them through tumultuous times toward victory and glory, but not without cost or opposition.

Whether mighty bushi, cunning courtier, or mystical shugenja, skill checks are the fundamental interactions you and your character will have with the game itself to determine the course of your adventures, and provide a path to unexpected journeys!

Join us today as we explore how skill checks are made in Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying and how they will help players and Game Masters shape stories together.

Finding the Path

Like most roleplaying games, Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying uses dice to determine the success or failure of the tasks that you and other characters are trying to accomplish. These objectives could be very small and immediate (escape a room, convince a guard to let you pass unhindered) or huge and incredibly aspirational (such as finding the original text of an ancient prophecy in a forgotten temple atop a faraway mountain). But just as small steps lead to great adventures, individual skill checks are the foundation for determining your characters’ progress and how the game’s world reacts to their efforts. After all, a skill check in Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying does not merely mark success or failure, but also what turns of fate may support or hinder an adventure as a whole.

While you're playing the game, the Game Master will determine when a skill check may be appropriate. A character walking across a bridge, even briskly, would not require a skill check, as this is a mundane activity. However, if your character is chasing or evading an opponent, or attempting to cross the bridge as a flash flood is washing away the support beams, then we have a consequence for failure and rolling the dice for a skill check is relevant.

The Flow of Fate

Every skill check in Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying follows a similar path: determine the approach, roll the dice and choose which to keep, and interpret the results.

The method and attitude that your character exhibits toward the task is called their elemental approach. The approach is relevant because many actions can be accomplished in different ways, depending on the character’s personality and intentions. For example, you and Game Master may decide that your sword master is currently relying on precision and studied discipline in their strikes, which means the elemental approach is Air. A bushi whose sword is meant to be a ferocious talon, cowing their opponent with a combination of overwhelming speed and passion for battle, is using the approach of Fire.

After determining your character's approach, you'll gather the dice that you need. For your chosen elemental approach, you'll look at your character's ability in that ring and grab that number of black six-sided dice—ring dice. Then, your character’s training in the specific task is applied and you'll take white twelve-sided dice (called skill dice) equal to your skill number. These dice are all rolled together—but you can only keep a number of dice equal to your character’s ring score, which can lead to some tough choices.

Each die offers a number of symbols that all represent different things:

Success: This symbol counts as one success toward achieving your goal. Some checks will only require one success for relatively simple tasks, while more difficult tasks can require more successes.

Explosive Success: Not only is this symbol counted as one success, but you may also roll an additional die to increase your chances of a better result. On difficult challenges, this can allow your character to overcome truly formidable opposition.

Opportunity: Opportunity doesn't count as a success for the action, but it is a narrative tool representing a beneficial turn of fate. With opportunity, the character may notice something about their surroundings, or add a positive narrative twist that can make their successes even greater or their failures salvageable.

Strife: The other side of the narrative coin is strife, which indicates unchecked emotion and inner turmoil that can destabilize your character. These emotions are not necessarily good or bad, merely strong. A character’s mounting strife may cause them to act out in rage against an adversary just as easily as it may cause them to abandon decorum and show their open affection for another person.

Once the dice have been rolled, you'll choose to keep a number of dice equal to your relevant ring score! Sometimes this decision is easy, but if multiple symbols appear together on a single die, the choice can be more difficult. You may need to choose whether to accept success with increased strife, or perhaps balancing success with increased narrative opportunity.

Once the dice have been chosen and the final results tallied, the player and Game Master describe the results together! A sword may find purchase in an opponent’s armor which makes future attacks more deadly, a merchant may assents to a deal but holds a grudge against the character, or a shinobi finds a familiar alley to hide in as her enemies waste time searching in vain.

A Rooftop Chase

When you put it all together, a skill check may look a little like the following:

Kat wants to have her character, Sakura, leap from one rooftop to another while pursuing a suspicious figure fleeing the scene of a crime. She describes her character’s reckless approach to the task—catching up is the most important thing right now! 

The GM decides that since she’s trying to overwhelm a foe with a burst of speed, the check will use Sakura’s Fire Ring and Fitness skill. A rooftop chase is already an impressive feat, and the layer of snow across each surface isn't making anything easier, so the GM determines that Kat will need to roll three successes to achieve her goal. Sakura has a Fire Ring value of three, so Kat picks up three ring dice, along with the single skill die that represents her meager Fitness skill. After rolling, Kat views her results and sees one die showing a success, a second showing an opportunity, a third showing a strife and an oppurtunity, and her skill die showing an explosive success. 

Kat must now choose three dice to keep. Kat needs three success symbols to succeed, but currently only has two. However, if she keeps the explosive success, she gets to roll an additional die, which may give her the final success that she needs! She chooses to avoid strife and keeps the dice showing success, explosive success, and opportunity. Kat rolls an extra skill die for the explosive success, and gains an additional success and a strife!

Kat records her newly gained strife on her character sheet, inching her closer to an innapropriate outburst. Kat then resolves her opportunity, deciding the chase has shaken her target, making him easier to question later. Finally, Kat resolves her three success symbols, which allows Sakura to leap across the gap and tackle her target!

Finding Center

At the core of the mechanics of dice and skill checks is the advancing story that you and your friends are telling together. The goal isn’t to say “yes” or “no,” but to ask “why” and “how.” By fleshing out the narrative of the actions rather than just declaring the actions themselves, players and Game Masters together tell a story of ideals, emotions, and purpose. Honor and glory await!

Stay vigilant for future previews for Legend of the Five Rings Roleplaying where we’ll examine the process of creating interesting and evocative characters, the world they inhabit, and the stories they’ll tell!

Baradorian Chronicles 2

RPGNow - Sat, 08/18/2018 - 05:42
Baradorian Chronicles 2Publisher: Alternate Realities Publications

Baradorian Chronicles is part replay, part note transcription, part world building, part game engineering, part novelization, part developer blog; a little of everything, really. It tells the story of a fantastic and old world struggling to survive as it is beseiged by vile things from all sides.

As the chapters of Baradorian Chronicles publish, they will follow a primary storyline. Occasionally, chapters will appear that are self-contained short stories, as well as side stories that will pause the main storyline. A couple other concurrent storylines will be appearing eventually as well. Interspersed, there will be things appearing that you would find in an author's series bible - pages about races, careers, magic, geography, culture, personal biographies, etc. Initially, the "bible notes" will come on heavy and the story a bit slow in order to build up enough background information for things to make sense. Along with these author's notes, there will be significant game design documents appearing along the way, eventually culminating in the final version of the Moderna System. Once enough background exists, the story will flow more quickly.

This release covers Chapters 4 and 5 plus a character race: The Avashantii
