AFA_promo-01A Mythic Age Undreamed

Keeping busy and making moves. Khepera is hitting and sticking like grandmas’ chicken. I’m stuck in the house wearing my man blouse, but I’m not idle. Doug Bramlett is leading the crew and taking us on a journey to an age undreamed!

Beyond GODSEND Agenda, and Terra Oblivion, we have ATLANTIS: The First Age. Work is happening, and writing is filling up folders.

ATLANTIS: The Raven Braid Comic That Never Was

RavenBraidJust a few things from the vault.

I want to present a few pages of a comic book for ATLANTIS: The Second Age I had commissioned a while back. The project never went forward, but it’s a shame to leave this unseen.

The story was taken directly from the adventure module ATLANTIS: The Raven Braid. The intent was to do a comic based on the adventure and to repackage and publish it as a graphic novel.

When I look back, I wish I would have completed the project.

John Vita is the artist, and you can see more of his work in the MYTHIC D6 products.

GODSEND Agenda Sneak Peek- The Angelos!

GODSEND Agenda -The Angelos Zuriel

 

Angelos_Promo_v1-01More sneak peeks of what the game will look like when finished. The PDF presented is still a very early Beta version sample of the Angelos and a sample character. Later this month, I hope to have the full beta version up for interested people to see.

Let’s look at what a GODSEND Agenda character is made of.

(Click on the image to the left to see the PDF)

GODSENDAgenda_Angelos_Example-01

1-Species: There are six different species in GODSEND Agenda.

  • Angelos
  • Atlanteans
  • Black October
  • Chimerans
  • Elohim
  • U.S.E.R. Agent (Human)

2-Archetype: Each character has an archetype, and each type has a different outlook on life and how they live as a superhuman. Zuriel is a Warrior archetype and settles conflicts with his fighting ability. Being a Warrior Archetype also gives Zuriel a “signature Attack.” The attack is player-defined and can be used times per round equal to his Ability Level

3-Divinity: This is a lot like Archetype and helps steer the player into a concept. The Divinity gives the player a price break on certain abilities and powers. So, a Super Soldier gets a point break on skill specializations and a few attributes.

4-Attributes: All attributes start at +0 and go up from there. A +0 is the average human and what everything else is based on. A +1 in an attribute, makes you twice as good as someone with a +0, and a +2 makes you four times as good.

The attributes are

  • Dexterity (DEX)
  • Constitution (CON)
  • Strength (STR)
  • Speed (SPD)
  • Combat Rating (CR)
  • Charisma (CHA)
  • Intelligence (INT)
  • Perception (PER)
  • Willpower (WIL)
  • Metaphysics Rating (MR)

5- Ability Level: this determines how powerful your hero is in the GODSEND Agenda. It starts at zero and works its way up to ten. The default start is Ability Level 3; a baseline human is Ability Level zero.

6- Hero Points: a meta currency in-game that allows the player to augment rolls, negate or add damage, or fiddle with the setting. Players start the game with twice their Ability Level plus their MR attribute.

7- Wealth Rating: this determines how much resources the hero has. The higher the attribute, the more wealth a hero has at their disposal.

8- Hit Points: How much physical damage a hero can take. The average human can take 5 points of damage; a starting hero can take 10+ CON attribute.

9- Mind Points: How much psychic damage a hero can take. The average human can take 5 points of damage; a starting hero can take 10+ WIL attribute.

10- Renown: How famous or infamous your hero is. The more Renown they possess, the more they can affect the world around them.

11- Skills: Skills start at +1 for a novice and go up from there, no upper limit. Skills plus Attributes are added to 2D10 and rolled versus a GM assigned difficulty. Specializations as a Margin of Success (MoS) to the roll.

12- Disadvantages: Every hero has them, and the player defines what they are. Each hero has one of the following:

  • Relationship- someone that the player is vexed by. They could be in love with this person, hate this person, or are involved with a person that could compromise them in situations.
  • Internal- This is something going on inside the hero. A personality quirk that hinders the hero.
  • External- Something everyone on the outside, sees and reacts to.

Each Disadvantage is rated from 1 to 3. The player has 5 points to distribute among them, and activating them gives the hero more Hero Points to use.

13-Gadgets: This is Zuriel’s equipment. Some heroes have powers, and some have equipment, while others have a combination of both. Zuriel is all about his equipment. The equipment is built using the powers and gadget system in GODSEND Agenda.

14- Result Chart: A small bit of help at the bottom of the sheet to help determine the result of the dice rolls. The higher you roll, the more Margins of Success you receive.

A basic success is a roll of 11 or higher. Partial Success is when the result is 6-10, and failure is 1-5.

Thanks for the interest, more to come later!

In the “Zone

GODSEND Agenda Logo

GODSEND_CoverI’ve been busy working on an assortment of things. MYTHIC D6 and ATLANTIS: The Second Age are consuming a lot of my time and energy but lately I started work again on my all-time favorite game (that I created), GODSEND Agenda. It was the first game I ever published and I’m moving back around to tinkering on it again. I’ve been working on and off on this version for a while and I started cranking stuff out that a madman this week.

It’s amazing how much you can get done when you get into the zone. At this rate, I may have a character to show as proof of concept in a few weeks. What’s great is the work I do here will dovetail nicely into new ATLANTIS and HELLAS content soon.

 

What I have done so far

  • Powers framework – 70% done
  • Character Creation – 50%
  • System – 25% done. Doing a total overhaul
  • Background- Revamp in the works
