A bit of a silly idea but I thought you guys would find it fun:
The idea of the game is that you list a non-Swedish game you would like to play, then the next poster tells you which Swedish game you should use instead.
Obviously the answers can be a bit interpretive but they should be close...
So I am kicking around doing some Eon with my American group but the big question I run into is:
Where in the world to set the game? Eon is a big "culture game" so there's a ton of setting and information, but they won't be able to read any of it of course, so they will have to...
Appreciate the thoughts and suggestions.
I did like the HT approach though we did end up finding we were maxing out the main skills fairly quickly. But you can always tone it down slightly if needed.
We never had people swapping weapons just to get a check. Maybe nobody thought of it :)
While we're talking, something that has always bothered me:
In Expert, 91 and Chronopia, experience is a points system. As you use your skills or train, you get experience and when you have enough you can buy up the skill. Cool, I like that.
A: Experience is awarded for one...
Somewhat tangential, I think that gets overlooked a bit I think is that Drakar was pretty unique among BRP games in having characters die at minus FYS. In most versions you die at 0.
This makes it much less likely for a character to be killed in a single hit which I generally prefer.
Comparing a few random item prices (all prices in silver)
Kortsvärd 190 in Expert, 400 in 91
Bredsvärd 200 in Expert, 1000 in 91
Långbåge 250 in Expert, 700 in 91
Armor (Assuming a Size 12 character)
Ringbrynie harnesk 437.5 in Expert, 1500 in 91
A pair of pants 25 in Expert, 25 in 91
Was it ever explained why? At a first glance, it looks like it fits more in the more D&D-influenced vibe of 91 but I'm just guessing there.
We never had an issue with prices in Expert, that I remember.
I'll admit, while we pieced our way through the rulebook battle system a few times and it was fine, we were just as happy when I just GMed it normally like i would have in any other system.
The options in the book are mostly a dice rolling exercise while the Book of Battle is an entirely new...
As usual, feel free to respond in Swedish or English as you prefer.
I hope some folks are around to see this :)
So I have been reading the rulebook and really liking it. It feels a lot like a post-BRP game.
I do have some questions, particularly around skill values: It seems that a lot of the...
Ensamma Vargen is definitely a legit RPG and still for sale. I got my copy earlier this year direct from the publisher.
It's a translation / adaptation of the older Mongoose Lone Wolf game, but with brand new art.
