Tregen Firmstone

Fail Squad Games - Mon, 04/09/2018 - 02:07

A BECMI Character Created with Labyrinth Lord using Rules Cyclopedia straight 3d6 method.

Tregon Firmstone

Tregon is no stranger to heavy armor and hard battles, but prefers the quiet movement of his fine leather.
“I can’t feel the stone clunkin’ round in all that metal.”

Tregon is a hardy, solid dwarf of good reputation among his kin in the mountains. He works hard, is likable, with a good humor. He always sees the best in folk and sometimes to a fault. He can be quite gullible. Trevon believes most things that people say are the truth, and has lost his savings more than once because of his blind trust in others.

Tregon prefers the home life. His mother’s Sweet potatoes and onions makes up his favorite meal. He has come to admire halflings for their enjoyment of good food and drink and never misses an opportunity to visit them when he can. While he loves home life under the security of the mountains, a wanderlust occasionally takes hold of him and his curious nature keeps him from holding a life-long work in the dwarven society.

Actual Play: Tell Me, Have You Seen the Yellow Sign? Part 3

19th Level - Mon, 04/09/2018 - 00:05
I cannot forget Carcosa where black stars hang in the heavens; where the shadows of men's thoughts lengthen in the afternoon, when the twin suns sink into the lake of Hali; and my mind will bear for ever the memory of the Pallid Mask. ― Robert W. Chambers, The King in Yellow

[Part One] [Part Two]


Setting:New Orleans, LA; Tuesday, February 1 - Saturday, February 5, 1921
Characters:
  • Earl Crowley - Antiquarian settled in Arkham
  • Jordaine Furst - Strasbourg-born Great War spy for France
  • Fredrick Tardiff - Great War veteran, Kingsport artist
Summary:Hearing Fowler and Papa Screech back in the estate, the investigators exercised stealth. Crowley and Tardiff prepared to burn the side of the teleportation portal on the estate side of the gate while Furst snuck upstairs to see if there was anything worth seeing.

Upstairs she did find something rather disturbing behind a locked door (which she easily picked) - a shrine to his dead wife and daughter, with a copy of The King in Yellow as well as a tattered notebook. Flipping through it she found it was a set of instructions as to how one might summon Hastur. She pocketed the notebook and, going back downstairs, put the King in Yellow in the kindling they had laid out.

Their attempt to sneak out was not quite successful - Papa Screech heard them and pursued, opening fire with his handgun. Furst and Crowley returned fire, killing him. However, Fowler lived in a wealthy neighborhood and they quickly heard the whistles of police officers responding to the sound of shots fired. However, Tardiff had an ace up his sleeve - a spell he had learned to summon a mist, providing them a cloak in which to escape.

The next day Crowley and Furst monitored the swamp summoning area while Tardiff kept an eye on things in New Orleans.

Tardiff learned that Fowler had been taken to a hospital for a nervous breakdown - and that the portal had indeed been destroyed. He also discovered that Fowler had vanished during the night.
Crowley and Furst saw some of the remaining cultists dragging Fowler to one of the old hits, tied up. From listening to their talk it was clear they were distraught, refusing to believe that Papa Screech was truly dead and hoping he would soon appear so they could complete the summoning ritual.

That being established, the two returned to New Orleans to meet with Tardiff. They decided to make an anonymous tip to the police about Fowler and informed their patron, Charles Sunstram, of all that had transpired.

Keeper Notes:This last part was a pretty quick session, but we weren’t quite able to finish in part two. I was rather impressed by this old adventure - I ran it pretty close to as written, though I did add an extra clue here or there as it seemed there were a few too many pinch points. New Orleans was a nice diversion from our New England based campaign and over the years I’ve come to appreciate the Robert Chalmers that influenced HP Lovecraft.

    Sentinels of Echo City Deluxe Now Available

    The Splintered Realm - Sun, 04/08/2018 - 14:33
    The complete book for Sentinels of Echo City Deluxe Edition is now available! Whew.

    I wanted to lay out the game plan for the near future...

    There will be a print edition in a few weeks. I have been through this with a fine-tooth comb. That said, there is probably SOMETHING that I missed. I want to give it a few weeks to go back with fresh eyes before putting it in print. It is much easier to update a pdf than to tell people the print book they just ordered has some errors.

    I have a plan for long-term sustainability. I plan to release a 24-page game update bi-monthly. I have notes for the first six of these. I didn't include the second Echo City Team Up characters, setting, and adventure in this core rule book, because these are going to be part of a larger 'under the sea' supplement that will be in the first few updates. The first one is going to focus on the Powers Family, and we'll be going under the sea in the second or third update. I don't have a title for these yet... I do love the name "Echo City Team Up", so I may just go with a second volume of that... I decided on a $9.95 price point for the book, because A) it is significantly longer than the other games I've done, and B) all supplements for it are going to be pay-what-you want, meaning that this is the only investment you'll ever have to make, and everything else will be optional.

    I'd love to hear your feedback, and I'd welcome any help to spread the word about this book. It's all open content, so you are free to make, share, and publish your own updates. Please do! Tell your friends!

    Thanks for the enthusiasm for this game. If it wasn't for people asking for it, I probably wouldn't have gotten around to doing it, and I am REALLY proud of the final product.

    - Mike

    Want Straight Edges? Try this Trick

    Knitting | Work in Progress - Sun, 04/08/2018 - 10:30
    Whew! The last end has been woven and my Herlacyn afghan is blocking as we speak. 

    I promise to do a true FO post soon, but in the meantime, I thought you might be interested in a few quick tips and tricks to help you block everything from scarves and shawls to cardigans, blankets and afghans with greater precision and straighter lines. 

    If you own the basic plain blocking tiles as I do, straight lines can be a challenge. If you're lucky enough to own blocking mats printed with a grid, you're ahead of the game but you might still find these tips helpful. Blocking wires provide a nice, straight edge, but they don't work for all projects.

    Since I like to keep things as simple as possible, here's what I do. First, I connect as many blocking tiles as I need. Then, I tie a slip knot in a piece of string and hook it over one of the nubbins at the top edge of the mat.



    I run this string down the full length of the mat and wrap it around the corresponding nubbin at the bottom, making sure it's taut and straight to form a guideline for the left edge.



    With the edge established, I begin spreading the entire piece over the blocking mats, continuing to run string lines between the top and bottom as needed. In this instance I ran four vertical lines (one for each edge and one for each seam).

    I then start patting out the lumps and bumps, pinning things into place using the strings as a visual guide to align shapes, seams and edges. 

    I keep my tape measure handy and continue to make adjustments until the end result looks something like this:

    In this instance, I was able to use the top and bottom mat edges as a lateral guide, but if I need horizontal lines, I simply follow the same strategy and run strings side to side. It's equally easy to establish diagonal guidelines for triangular shawls or other items with slanted shapes, and if I were making a pile of individual blanket squares, I'd get the strings in place, block the first square, then leave the strings in place, so I could block each subsequent square to the exact same dimensions.
    One of these days, I may invest in mats with a pre-printed grid, but for now, this fast and easy trick helps me block straighter seams and edges to improve the overall look of the finished piece. Have your own favorite blocking tips? Feel free to share them in the comments below.

    Calvin’s Commentaries: Martial Art

    First Comics News - Sun, 04/08/2018 - 09:29

    There are those games which fight above their weight class as they say.

    Martial Art from designers Adrian Marrs, and Jonathan Ruland is one of those games.

    It is a card game that I was initially attracted to for the art, which I must say is outstanding, at least if you like historic Japanese artwork. The medieval-themed art is outstanding. I could frankly sit down and enjoy thumbing through the deck simply to enjoy the art. It drew me, which I am sure was the goal, but it is good that it did because the game is more than good looks.

    Martial Art is a card game of factions warring for dominance of feudal Japan, which I admit I am a fan of. Samurai and daimyo and ninjas are something I gravitate too.

    The game consists of a series of battles in which players must anticipate their opponents’ actions, build their hands, and manage their cards to acquire enough land and power to defeat the other clans and win the game.

    That sounds more complicated than Martial Art is.

    This game will remind a bit of War. You have a hand of cards, select one, put it face down while the others players do the same. On the reveal of the played cards the highest winning.

    But there are some options here. Various cards played are more than a raw number, having text which influences the results of the round.

    So “as clan leader, command your armies and muster forces to find the tools to conquer places of economic and cultural importance such as the capital Kyoto or the rising city of Edo. But to win takes more than foot soldiers. Provoke a peasant rebellion, influence the emperor to support your claim, or even distract the enemy commanders with lovely Geisha,” details the company website (http://www.spidergoatgames.com).

    A single deck is needed for two players, and you can combine two decks for three and four player games. One small issue here is that a card list is not included to make sorting combined decks easier. It would have been a useful addition.

    Still, this is a game that grew on me. After the first play it seemed a bit too simplistic, but after a couple of more plays strategies involving both card combinations, and perhaps more importantly the timing in terms of when to throw a ‘bigger’ card into battle, or maybe sluff off a lower card given the rewards available the game became far more enjoyable.

    In the end, Martial Art provides a very enjoyable game, one better than anticipated, and worth recommending.

    Thanks to fellow gamers Trevor Lyons and Adam Daniels for their help in running through this game for review.

    Venn Aikido

    When I practice Aikido
    I can't help but think
    Of Venn diagrams
    (You, too, right?!)
    Of nage and uke
    Disparate circles - merging
    The set of me (nage)
    Intersecting with set (uke)
    N ∩ U -
    The overlapping regions depicting
    A set of possible outcomes
    I automatically drop down
    To Euler diagrams
    Eliminating non-relevant options
    Allowing me to choose
    A fitting technique and outcome -
    Ah, if only I were so elegant!

    RICH REVIEWS: Stan Lee’s Lucky Man: The Bracelet Chronicles # 1

    Title: Stan Lee’s Lucky Man: The Bracelet Chronicles # 1
    Publisher: TPub Comics
    Original Art and Story by: POW! Entertainment
    Additional Writers: Neil Gibson and Michael Gordon
    Illustrator: Atula Siriwardane
    Colorist: Ellie Wright
    Letterer: Jim Campbell
    Cover Artist: Atula Siriwardane
    Variant Cover Artist: Vince Sunico
    Touch Up Art: Jess Taylor
    Touch Up Letterer: Warren Montgomery
    Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
    Website: tpub.co.uk/
    Comments: Harry has the bracelet and it gives its owner luck. Harry tries to find out everything he can about this bracelet. It seems to give good luck and bad luck.
    The art has a soft look making the faces appear smooth. They could use more detail to them. The coloring on the Soviets is just awful. People are yellow and white skinned.
    The dancer and the astronaut part of the story does get exciting and the outer space scenes look dangerous.
    “The Theory” this as well is a preview only. Writer/Creator Neil Gibson, illustrator Cem Iroz, colourist Liezi Buenaventura and letterer Warren Montgomery.
    We see a man living out his jail time. This is a weird take on punishment for criminals. The punishment is far worse than the crime depending on how you look at it. Trying out a new system has both ups and downs. For this prisoner, his punishment will last forever. You can almost feel how he does as you go through this story.

    Dan’s Top 19 RPGs - #8 - RuneQuest

    19th Level - Sat, 04/07/2018 - 18:08




    RuneQuest is a game I’d love to get a bit more time playing. The first version I picked up was the Avalon Hill-published, Chaosium-produced 3rd edition of the game. For many, if not most people, RuneQuest is equivalent to Glorantha, the default setting of the game. However, the 3rd edition took place on a fantasy version of Earth, with Glorantha detailed in a book in the boxed set.
    My own experience with RuneQuest is in using it as the rules for a fantasy version of Earth, with the PCs being either Vikings or Lenape Native Americans, covering a fictional colony set up by Vikings in Manhattan around 1000 AD. It featured evil dwarfs, dragons, and lots of violence. It was a lot of fun. If it went much longer I think I would have thrown in some ninjas and dinosaurs... We actually used a fairly crunchy version of the rules, as designed by Nash and Whitaker for Mongoose Publishing, a set of rules that became the basis for The Design Mechanism’s RuneQuest 6th Edition and later Mythras. Chaosium, after a long journey, has the rights back to both the game and the rules and is in the process of producing a new edition, RuneQuest Glorantha.
    What’s the appeal of RuneQuest? For me, it’s the skill-based characters. Without classes, you can make any character you want. With a simple percentile skill system it is easy to know how good your character is at something. And characters will rarely have enough hit points to guarantee surviving a single hit from a sword, combat is very exciting - lots of parrying and maneuvering. The Nash and Whitaker incarnation of RuneQuest greatly detailed the maneuvers possible, with characters getting additional options depending on how well they attack or defend. This was sometimes a little too crunchy for my tastes but it did make combat very exciting. From what I’ve seen, Chaosium appears to be throttling back on this a bit, going back to something closer to the 2nd and 3rd editions of the game. Still quite a few options, but not quite as crunchy. I’m considering RuneQuest to be a single game, unlike the different editions of D&D. Unlike D&D versions, RuneQuest character sheets from one edition tp the next look quite similar to one another, albeit with a lot more details as the editions go up. The editions aren’t quite as similar to one another as they are for its sibling, Call of Cthulhu. This is perhaps not too surprising considering the game has had four publishers - Chaosium, Avalon Hill, Mongooe, and The Design Mechanism. 
    RuneQuest is also well known for its magic systems. The base game assumes that everyone is able to use magic, though for most this amounts to very minor magics like sharpening a blade. It is possible to become a dedicated priest in all of the editions and many of them also allow for sorcerers. Nash and Whitaker opened it up to shamans, divine priests, sorcerers, and mentalists. They also provided dials for how magical a world you wanted - you could,for example, take away the ability of everyone to use magic quite easily. It was also used by Mongoose for gaming in Lankhmar, though, truth to tell, I was a bit disappointed by those books. 
    I’ve never gamed in Glorantha which makes me a bit uncomfortable commenting on one of its best known aspects. Glorantha is very much a fantasy setting. The gods in that setting are very real. The afterife is a very concrete thing, reducing fear of death quite a bit - and giving an emphasis on becoming legendary for one’s deeds. I like how it gets away from the default medieval fantasy of most games, going for more of a Bronze Age fantasy - and with a strong emphasis on different cultures, from the very primitive to empires. I’ve been giving some serious thought to trying out a Glorantha-based game of late.

    Echo City Map

    The Splintered Realm - Sat, 04/07/2018 - 15:01
    I absolutely love the map that Michael Hansen did a few years ago for Echo City. It created a visual for the city that was different than the one I had in my head, but it was also a thousand times better. In putting the book together, I went to include that map. However, I realized that the file was a bit small, so it became grainy when I blew it up for inclusion in the book. Even more, though, I realized that I couldn't do anything with it... it was a finished file that I didn't have the ability to modify, add to, or tailor further. It was a finished product. I figured it would be worth the time to do my own version of it, breaking the files up so that I could manipulate them and create various layers of the pieces of Echo City, but also in a large enough file that I could go to the street level and put in actual buildings or places of interest as we go forward, updating the primary map. I present to you, the map of Echo City 2.0 (and the black and white version that will be inside the rule book):

Remember it well, then... this night, this great victory. So that in the years ahead, you can say, "I was there that night, with Arthur, the King!" For it is the doom of men that they forget."
