Hi folk, I was not sure where to park that thread, but here it is.
There is a series (4 so far) of books by a guy called Mike Shevdon, urban fantasy based on the coexistence of humans (set in the UK) and the 7 courts of the Fayrie (from your typical fae to Trolls and weres), and I was thinking of ripping the universe (utterly shameless, me), and grafting it onto a generic system, as there are quite a few possibilities there (rather dark, twisted, and many angles to tackle the conundrum of where to start for PCs).
Anyway, was wondering if any of you had read the books, and how many might be sold on the concept, as I was thinking of running a few games, maybe solos, and see if there is the space (and interest)for a shortish campaign out of it.août 6, 2017 à 7:33 #198458
time, time, time… I need to find a way to invent a time machine to expand my availability. I am curious about the idea, have not read the books, but just cannot make the time… for now! 🙁août 7, 2017 à 7:10 #198460
It’s the first time I hear about this series of books, but I’d be interested in diving in an RPG conversion of the world, yes.
If this goes forward, which system would you consider using?

I have not read the books, but would be interested, as the others, i might have limited availability.août 8, 2017 à 7:32 #198464
Was thinking of using my usual Interlock (old system that was used for cyberpunk 2020) with a few changes, not that rules matter overly. Still, wrote a few notes so far, so might just make it a convention one off and gauge reactions then 🙂août 8, 2017 à 8:24 #198465
Thanks for the details.
Well, whatever the system, I’m game. It sounds very promising.août 10, 2017 à 9:13 #198467
7 courts of the Fayrie (from your typical fae to Trolls and weres)
Sounds like some World of Darkness stuff right there.
Have you read the alpha version of the rules for the coming (new new) WoD. I must say it is very promising and and worth trying to adapt it.
Do you plan an official release or is it ok to copy/reuse whatever system.
Please don’t do OGL.août 10, 2017 à 9:37 #198468août 13, 2017 à 11:38 #198469
I’ve looked at the new WoD, main issue with the system is that it’s fine at low level, but higher up and you end up chucking so much dice you get RSI. But what I like about the courts world is that it’s a bit more human centric, as they are way more in balance with the supernatural (ie, they could pretty much annihilate them in the blink of an eye, so plenty of accords exist between the two so they can safely ignore each other). As for the politico losing it, it’s 2017, nothing amazes me any more 😛août 13, 2017 à 6:20 #198470
Nothing amazes you any more? I wish I had your confidence, ’cause word on the street is that, as regards being pretty crazy, 2017 still has some tricks up its bag of (shit) tricks.août 14, 2017 à 8:33 #198471
For the issue of having too many dice in your hand(s), I think the D6 system solved it nicely already.
For each « next level » or whatever progression you plan to have, add bonus instead of dice.
In a hybrid system, make it easier to increase the bonus than the number of dice.
Hard to help you properly without knowing your taste in rule systems. We can just throw stuff and spam this thread until we find out what is it you’re looking for.
Add some back and forth so that we can get faster in the right direction.
Thanksaoût 14, 2017 à 3:59 #198472
My kind of system is the one that is a referee for dumb calls on the PJs’ part, instead of something that runs the whole thing. Way more of a storyteller than a wargamer.août 14, 2017 à 4:09 #198473
Same. My Rolemaster years, and even then it was only as a player, are way behind me. ha
Couldn’t the « Kult » system work for this Fayre one-shot you’d like to put together? It felt pretty light to me as only two or three dice rolls were thrown during the eventful 4hr one-shot you refereed.août 14, 2017 à 6:38 #198474
Yeah, it tends to be the system I go for. Though what you didn’t see was the scripted, scenario timed tablet running a nice stream of probability tables behind the screen :paoût 15, 2017 à 9:00 #198475
