    RPT Newsletter #001 | Mapping Dilemma – How To Stop Your Players From Yawning

    We usually GM theater of the mind, but the pandemic made us use more internet resources, such as pictures. We also sometimes use a hand drawn map on the spot to clarify if needed. And with the abundance of free online maps, sometimes one of us uses one for a while.

    RPG (System) for a SUPERS Campaign?

    Well, to be fair, my players also don't run at that level of improv, and the game still works. They are starting to get used to the idea that they have more options to influence the game, but they use it with care. There is a thing that's not mentioned in the game, they say that whenever a...

    RPG (System) for a SUPERS Campaign?

    Well, since you want to know a little about fate, I'll put this, which is a 2 page comic explanation of the basics of fate withouth going in deep into the full rules. Let's say it's a good teaser and a great basic explanation of the things for the player side. . Up to 4 players - Fate Rules

    RPG (System) for a SUPERS Campaign?

    Well, you have Venture City, Fate based, which mixes low powered superheroes with ciberpunk corporations. You have also Masks, PBTA based, which is both about being a superheroe while also being a tenager (think yourg justice, Teen Titans) There's a border case in Atomic Robo, Fate based, which...

    INSIGHT HELP, PLEASE! Characters' Arc: is it even possible in our campaigns?

    One way of doing this, is something we do without realizing when we put something weird into a players hand and see how that changes how the character does things. Then that weirdness is able to grow with the character, and transform, then if that character embraces the change, he's growing in a...

    Player Knowledge vs Character Knowledge

    One obvious way to resolve 1) is asking "and how do you know that?", taking into account that if the answer is good enough, I'll let it pass. About 2) there's two answers. a) If it's common knowledge in the world/country/city and the players are from that space, then they know it and it's my...

    Question of the Week: What's the coolest world feature you've seen or created?

    Yeah, you also got Regio when you entered a church, and on some cemeteries. While I never GMd Ars magica, our group played it with several chronicles. I always loved the use of latin words for magic. Creo Ignem, Muto Terram, Intellego Vim. And the hand signs that went with it.

    Clever ways to drop clues

    Another way of doing clues, I learnt from Fate. If you want them to learn the clue, but they fail the roll, they find the clue, but it took so much time that the rest of the trail has run cold, so they'll have some complications about it. This pushes the adventure forward while still penalizing...

    Fate VTT

    I tested it, it's quite good, though it lacks a little customization, and only works with Core and not with Fate Condensed, the latest rule revision. For example I can translate the skills, but I can't say which ones give more stress tracks.

    CL vNext - Deletion of a Campaign - Behavior Poll

    I'd say if campaign are being deleted, ask if the logs should be deleted too. Id the answer is yes, delete them all, if it's no, let them check which ones to keep and generate a move to another campaign or create another campaign to put them dialog.

    How to improve your descriptions?

    Another thing, and that is very important, if they jump into the action before hearing all the description, their characters charged in without noticing things, let him face non mortal but grave consequences. If he charged without noticing monsters because you hadn't arrived to that point, he...

    Voices and accents

    It's more likely for me to use specific odd words for a certain NPC than an accent that I can't document and can't be sure to do exactly the same way next time. That being said, some more important NPCs might get better treatment with accents.
