Re: Background music?

Definitely interested Shuggoth. I see you've made use of Zathura too.

Re: Alternate Warden (Paladin-based)

Never be afraid to simply throw out the bad. Warden always felt a little awkward to me, so starting from scratch is legitimate.

Re: Is Rocket Age completed?

Lately, I've been wanting to revisit some old Edgar Rice Burroughs novels and I think that the Vortex system would work wonderfully for a game based on his Pellucidar series. Vortex is also perfect for Indiana Jones. Good luck getting that license. You should check out Pulp Fantastic. It uses the s...

Re: Background music?

In the past I've found music most useful in narration honestly, especially since verbal storytelling often uses the same narrative beats as movie storytelling, provided you've been listening to the music beforehand and have a feel for it. I've used the first track from Raiders of the Lost Ark during...

Re: Background music?

This is some great stuff Dankers. The Day the Earth Stood Still is a fantastic suggestion. I'm planning on using the old King Kong soundtrack for some of the exploration stuff on Venus myself.

Re: Hacking in Rocket Age

One possibility I thought of recently was treating hacking like a social combat, except with Technology in place of Convince, while dealing with a Robobrain.

You could always of course just argue normally with the Robobrain and convince it to help you, but I suspect that would be a lot harder.

Re: Upcoming Books

Thanks Ken.

One thing I'm eager for is more one shot adventures to tide me over. I also really loved the Asteroid Belt supplement. I could imagine another one of those covering the random space stations and odd phenomena strewn around the solar system. Or a mini-book on the sun.

Re: Upcoming Books

You could always ask Ken Spencer. I'll probably ask myself.

Honestly though, considering the runaway success of Adventures in Middle Earth, Rocket Age might be on the back-burner for a while.

You could, but for my mind that goes too far in the other direction of ignoring reality and practicality. Small to medium-sized melee weapons tend not to be designed to be used in such a manner.
Eh, you could reasonably use a one handed axe or hammer in two hands. Swords, not so much.

Re: The D&D Edit Dark Ages Weapons and Armour

With things like 'Splintered Spears & Shattered Shields' and 'Shield Smasher', I think that versatile weapons might sometimes be a better choice than it might first appear. Yeah, but to me that's more of a gameplay decision than anything else. I'd be more inclined to make all one handed weapons ver...
