Amory Wars RPG Update v0.4

It’s so close to being done I can almost taste it. I’ll work on it more later today (probably). For now all it’s lacking is some explanatory preamble, more info on how space combat works, and info on the Monstar subtypes. I’m saving the latter for last, as I don’t want my players to necessarily know too much about it (although there’s enough in here to be ‘too much’ anyway).

Word 2003: Player’s Handbook

    Consider this my obligatory Gundam whining:

    Give me my Gundam!

    There. That feels better. I’ll try to shut up about it this evening.

    Haha. Really, I just need to `give you`an open space in which to use it.

    Your time has come, young padawan.

    So, how is that going?

    Did M get his Gundam?

    I game vicariously, y’all!

    It’s going reasonably well, though we’re currently on a holiday hiatus. Only one session left. M’s in his proto-gundam (not exactly a full gundam, as the would be terribly inconvenient . . . not being able to fit it inside their starship and all) at a meager 22 feet tall. And sofar it has been instrumental in the deaths of about 50,000 people (a very large starship, and a very small moon).

    So, are they evil or just careless?

    A little bit from column a, a little bit from column b. But mostly column a. One of the primary themes of the whole storyline, though, is how far would you go to save everything? What moral compromises would you make? Where would you draw the line. Definitely not questions that often come up in D&D (though they often do in immortal, as it is much ‘closer to home’). The tagline of the comics is actually “Would you kill your children to save humanity?” I would have worded it differently, but it kinda comes down to that.

    So, they’re working for the “greater good,” eh?

    Sounds like a fun game. Come to think of it, I only ever played in one game that you DM’d. And that one was brief. That’s unfortunate.

    Yes, that was quite some time ago. And I have to say that one was terribly inferior to the other two games I have since DM’d. It had a weak plot and weak npc’s. The second one had such a complex plot(s), I still have no idea how we pulled it off, and everyone still knew what was going on. And this one has (had) so many NPC’s it made my head spin. Methinks my next game (in the distant future) is going to be set in the firefly universe. The start of this game was very firefly-esque, and seemed to go very well. (You have some watching to catch up on 😛 )

    Yeah, one day I’ll get around to watching Firefly.
