FIST – some notes, a character sheet, and some pregens

I just ran a one-shot of FIST, and wanted to share some thoughts, pregens, and a custom character sheet. FIST (Freelance Infintry Strike Team) is a very simple but fun paranormal action/adventure game written by B. Everett Dutton & Ripley Caldwell. The setting is intentionally left vague; it's set during the "second half of the … Continue reading FIST – some notes, a character sheet, and some pregens

Diabolox – Urban Horror for the Cepheus Engine (with character sheet)

Michael Brown publishes a prodigious amount of stuff for the Cepheus Engine, mostly a lot of one page adventures. My favorite works of his are his one-page setting guides, mostly based on somewhat obscure sci-fi and fantasy properties.

For my entry I created a little sci-fi game called Planck. It's essentially a Cepheus Engine\Quantum Engine system stripped down to its bare essentials. It's designed … Continue reading Character sheet for Planck, a business card RPG

Riverbend: A mini-review, sample setting, and character sheet for a fantasy fishing RPG

Just finished up a one-shot of Riverbend (Itch | Exalted Funeral), a fantasy fishing RPG from Gustavo Tertoleone and Victor Amorim. It's a charming, rules-light little fantasy setting. Highly recommended. Players are "Villagers", who travel down a river basin, exploring, battling abominations, and most importantly - fishing. It's basically a pointcrawl set on a randomly … Continue reading Riverbend: A mini-review, sample setting, and character sheet for a fantasy fishing RPG

Lightning League: A Character Sheet for a Pulp RPG

At the designer's request, I've created a fillable character sheet for Lightning League, an action/adventure pulp RPG by Robert Garitta. The players are two-fisted heroes in the pulp tradition, who are all members of the Lightning League, "an Internationalorganization of inventors, explorers and heroes", operating in the years after WWII. The default setting is the … Continue reading Lightning League: A Character Sheet for a Pulp RPG
