#RPG – MetaCards – System-Neutral Roleplaying Prompts RELEASED!

GET THEM HERE

MetaCards provide a means to encourage roleplay and verisimilitude in your TTRPG games.

GET THEM HERE

MetaCards are a generic system that can be overlaid on top of any other game system.

The cards provide prompts to roleplay in a certain way. The players can then represent a certain mood or perform certain actions that can provide verisimilitude for games that are designed to seem ‘real’, or thematic cues for games that are more narratively focused.

The players are encouraged to follow the cards by a small, mechanical, near-universal bonus. Decks can be customised with prompts specific to your group or campaign if you’re seeking to encourage a specific kind of roleplay. You could customise the deck to prompt players in a horror game to do stereotypical horror-movie things, or those in a romantic fantasy game to engage with the romantic preconceptions of that genre.

This is meant to be introductory, allowing you to take the concept and run with it for your own games.

Hardcopies of the MAIN DECK and BLANK BOOSTERS will be available at TheGamecrafter.com

#RPG – A Month of Monsters – Dominar’s Gaze

image (12)You can buy this piece of stock art, for as little as $1 this month as part of a promotion. We have a promotion running all month, 31 pieces of monstrous stock art, one a day until all are at on sale culminating on the 31st for Halloween.

This piece depicts a deformed woman, covered in a mass of eyes.

Some spies do their deeds in the shadows, hidden completely from sight. Disguises of all kinds, magical and mundane, let them do their work. Others ‘hide’ in plain sight, relying on people’s horror, disgust, and even compassion to complete their work – some without even knowing that is what they are doing. Dark magic can twist people into grotesque puppets, and certain inheritors of the magic of the Tyrant Orb delight in making ‘improvements’ to their victims.

You can find these lovely vestments at our Teespring store and can hide your shame. They absolutely should not be torn, cut or otherwise altered to resemble slave rags or a ta-teera. Especially not the red one.

Head on over and pick yourself out something nice.

#Starfinder – Starfinder Month: Triblet-EP Star Tug

des-zhu-10-2

Art by Des Zhu

The Triblet-EP (Expansion Pod) is a real workhorse of a starship with a high-speed FTL engine, an over-powered core and a highly adaptable cargo system that allows it to reconfigure its rear end to catch, hold and even dock with just about any form of cargo pod or bay one could devise.

Triblets are too expensive to maintain and run for regular cargo routes and, instead, specialise in trailblazing new trading opportunities on the frontier. They race ahead of other ships, make contact with other species and return with new and precious cargo to turn a profit before moving on as those trade routes become established.

Despite its non-FTL slowness and its light armament, many explorers and bounty hunters retrofit these ships with smaller FTL engines, heavier armament and different external bays to suit their preference. Short of an outright modular ship its adaptability makes it perfect for dealing with unknown situations.
