Re: Background music?

[. . . ] I'm planning on using the old King Kong soundtrack for some of the exploration stuff on Venus myself. Let me know how this works out for you. I have the 1933 Max Steiner soundtrack but haven't been able to use it as effectively as I would have hoped. It seems to move from very bombastic to...

Re: Background music?

Thanks for the tip, Jakob. I keep forgetting about the Star Trek score. A true classic. Jerry Goldsmith is well, errr, a goldmine of gaming music. A little known theme that's been creeping into a few of my RA episodes is King Solomon's Mines "Quartermain March" (the theme kicks in at about 1:10). An...

Re: Rocket Age with other settings?

Hi Jakob, I've enjoyed the setting as is quite a bit and the system has worked well for my group. But I have similarly considered throwing the setting forward into a retro-style future not unlike the world of Captain Future from the Edmond Hamilton stories (I'm currently adapting The Comet Kings int...

Re: No dice?

Rocket Age has done very well for us as a non-licensed game. But it isn't quite in the place where it can support it's own line of dice. Which is a shame but there it is. ...though disappointed, I really appreciate the honesty. Class act from C7 all around. Thank you, Jon. As an alternative, I've b...

Getting Started or Countdown to Blastoff!

Hi All, I recently purchased this fantastic game and am looking forward to getting started as a GM in the Rocket Age universe! Seriously, looks/feels awesome. My group is new to the Vortex System. We're experienced players and the system seems straightforward enough. Other than a cheat-sheet on Stor...

Clarification for Shield-Fighting Virtue

The question came up around our table about how to interpret the Men of the Lake's Shield-Fighting virtue for a character that has already applied the Cunning-Make reward to his or her shield. After a brief discussion, we agreed that a reward shouldn't penalize a virtue and ruled that the original u...
