No, but I chanted Om Shanti Om.
But did you chant Hare Krishna?
Fixed it!

What are the weirdest classes you've ever found homebrew, or official? This is mine.
Concept: Apocalypse World game set in a magic realist-horror expy of the Yugoslav Wars
Hare Krishna!

You know after looking up 1970's Americana, I kind of want a Fallout knock off where the 70's never ended instead of the 50's. The music would be way better to. Love me some 50's pop music, but the diversity of awesome music was insane!
Ooh a bot squash it.
If you are looking specifically to try out different styles of gameplay, I would recommend one of these three rule systems:

1) Lamentations of the Flame Princess

2) Fate

3) World of Darkness (Vampire/Werewolf/Mage/etc. core system)
I think it depends on what you find dissatisfying about D&D, and/or what sort of genre apart from quasi-medieval fantasy you want to play in.
In terms of game systems, what's the next logical step after D&D?
If you have an idea, write it up. Even if nothing comes of it, you can always mash it into something else later. Rarely does an idea truly go to waste.

Think I should go for it?

Setting idea that's been brewing in my head for  a while. A world wherein an Elder God/Psuedo-moon came into the sky (like a mix between Azathoth, and the Moon from Majoras  Mask), and began bombarding the earth in psychic radiation, mutating everything. This happens in  in the early 18th century.  Basically it's my idea for Azoth 2057, but it uses Lovecraftian Biotechnology, rather than psuedo-alchemy.

Sorry for the white space, I meant to put in "Insert Snarky Comment On How Detroit Already Is Apocalypse World Here"
Delmarva native here. That is all.

LoA



In all seriousness, Delmarva looks like an interesting place. You should go with that.

Also would Apocalypse World work for a Fallout fan campaign?
Torn between locations for an AW game: Delmarva and Detroit

So I bought ARMS. Anyone curious about it, it's a great game to have with friends. Online play is pretty fun too, but the Single Player is a little dull.

Everytime I watch Castle in the Sky (Studio Ghibli) the intro credits alone make me want to build a Steampunk/Fantasy Sky World Setting.

LoA

Don't be silly Rhamnousia, you're post apocalypse is interesting and actually has character.
There's a future "Tumblr" wants, I've posted it, and it's a blasted and atomized gigafascist wasteland.
Thankfully, I doubt Tumblr has that kind of international klout

LoA

Actually that video is pretty dead on. Really if tumblr get's its way, will be living in Shadowrun soon enough.

On a more serious note, I hope it turns out well, but I've got a bad feeling...
On a more serious note - the upcoming Blade Runner 2049 might be a good example of "retrofuturist cyberpunk."
Does this answer your question LoA? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8GPGQoR6f6w

LoA

If cyberpunk is about our future, and Retrofuturism is about what people in the past thought the future would be like, does that mean today's cyberpunk, becomes tomorrows retrofuturism?
I'm here for this prime owl content.
Witches are like owls: they move in darkness, gather in parliaments, and occasionally vomit small packets of undigested bone and hair.
I've settled on a cult-infested Romano-Plantagenet empire
They both sound so great Rhamnousia!

LoA

Also last night I saw someone walking around in a 'Welcome to Nightvale" shirt. I High-fived him.

LoA

Why split the difference and have them go hand in hand?
Judgement call: squamous posthuman Louis XIV or devil-worshipping Paris Commune?
I think that depends on whether or not you're interested in anything else. The label's not worth worrying about, though.

LoA

Dumb queston: Would developing an interest in Japanese horror movies make me an Otaku in the American sense of the word?
Nice reddit, Hoers.
Also depends on what you're learning it for. You might find that you're better off using a particular set of rules from it as houserules for a game you already know, if you don't have anyone else who knows/wants to learn it. There's also a lot to take in to learn it entirely, so deciding why specifically you want to learn it is key, too. I know I've always been interested, but probably couldn't get a group together.
Depends on how much time and energy you have! Personally I would say no.
Hey folks, just saw this KS and thought you all might be interested.  No relation to me, but looked cool: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/howardtayler/deluxe-rpg-handbrain-screen?ref=card

LoA

Is GURPS worth the time and energy to learn?
Speaking of, need a name for a language group: how does "Yldic" sound?
She lives. I'm currently working on a reverse urban fantasy setting not totally unlike yours.
Fixed. It's /url not url/.

LoA

Sorry. Sparkletwist could you fix that please?

Hey Rhamnousia, I found some swank art for Transhuman Trailer Trash. Speaking of which how is that going?
Google is not your friend. It is the Pervy Abyss, staring lovingly back.
Holy shit anthro trains arethe gateway drug to all fetishes I wish I never knew existed. Thanks, Google!
