Free RPG Day 2014 Recap

Free RPG Day 2014 Poster

For those of you who couldn’t make it Free RPG Day at Pair A Dice went off pretty well. The store opening time was 10am but by 9:45 we had at least ten people waiting outside in line. Shawn, Gail and I volunteered to run the freebie/swag table to make sure everybody only took what they were allowed. Everyone got one item, store Royalty Rewards members were allowed a second item and anyone who purchased at least $10 from the store was allowed one additional item.

It was encouraging that most of the people in the first hour were already members. There was a nice assortment of booklets, many of them from Catalyst Game Labs. I personally picked up Cosmic Patrol which is a light RPG based on the new Cue System from Catalyst. The interesting thing about this system is that it doesn’t have a traditional Game Master, instead it has a Lead Narrator which passes to each player when a new scene begins. The setting is a 1930s-1940s pulp science fiction theme something along the lines of Flash Gordon or Commando Cody. Continue reading

Eclipse Phase RPG

Anyone interested in transhuman sci-fi roleplaying should check out Eclipse Phase (produced by Posthuman Studios, published by Catalyst Games). Below is some info about the game:

Biotechnology allows people to genefix, enhance, and clone their bodies, while others pursue body modifications to adapt to new environments or make themselves into something no longer quite human. People’s minds and memories can be digitized, uploaded, transferred over long distances, and downloaded into new bodies (biological or synthetic). Death has been defeated—for those who can afford it.

 

Eclipse Phase uses a variant d100/percentile system with some twists. The game is fast and simple, streamlined so players can dive into the world and action without being burdened down by complex rules.

One really interesting facet is that it was released under the Creative Commons Attribution- Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 Unported License. What this means is that you can redistribute it with attribution as long as you don’t charge money for it and you attribute the original material to Posthuman Studio.

In an effort to drum up some players to maybe run a campaign you can get the quick-start rules and the core rule book here at FGS. If you are interested in playing then don’t read the adventure section of the quick-start rules as that would spoil your fun.
