Starting a kickstarter for my new RPG Cyber Dallas 5000. Take on your role as a member of the Ewing clan as they manage a galactic resource harvesting empire in the year 5000.

Will JR come back as prophesized by the mad priest of Houston-9?

Will the Barnes combine violate the treaty?

Is it all just one of Bobby's fever dreams?

You'll have to back it to find out!

@mdhughes I watched whole episodes when it came out. And the Highlander cartoon lol.

@mdhughes No I just looked it up, Stargate: Infinity existed....

@mdhughes Yup classic "NPCs dont have to abide by class rules" logic.

But forget all that i just had another campaign Idea I'll never get to run. A reboot of the failed cartoon using cartoon action hour! (There was a cartoon right? Or did I make that up in a fever dream?)

@mdhughes i mean yeah, but that had more to do with the mixed quality of the wroting. I guess id like the "best of all worlds" cultural exploration and diplomacy version of SG1.

Also if SG1 was an edition of D&D its BX, Jaffa is a CLASS. :)

What system would be better?

Well hear me out, I know its a bit over used but i actually think Blades in the <BANG>

rOsE... bUd....

We finally get a licensed Stargate RPG and it's 5e.....

Halflings are just gnomes who aren't cool enough to hang with badgers.

Its pretty cool. Franky D has a neat bright cartoony SNES RPG style I'm really digging.

Not sure if there are folks who are looking to find the Bulldogs! Fate 3.0 / Fate Core books (along with some of the others from the Kickstarter) but if you are please ping me:

rpggeek.com/geekmarket/user/cr

Group discounts available and might even throw in some other goodies.

(Note: Offer only available for USA folks. Until we can get cheap matter transport it's actually less hassle for me to send this to the moon than to where most of you live. Sorry!)

This afternoon: Coming up with d66 rumor tables about a Vampire Lord for an RPG jam thing.

I was this many years old when i realized that i could set a fantasy RPG in an Anarcho-syndicalist Collective... Its literally the only bit of Holy Grail I haven't stolen for a game. Their town hero will of course be Dennis the Organizer.

I'm working on a submission for the next Cepheus Journal (the free Cepheus Engine fanzine). I'm adapting H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds.

Here's a preview - The Martian Fighting Machines

@mdhughes Actually when i play oldschool most of my houserules are rules snatched from other editions (Holmes Scroll rules for instance)

@mdhughes naw because 4e was also trash and people pointed to their Ten volume set of houserules to prove it was fine.

Actually i find that most people houserule away encumbrance and resource tracking which, for me, is what makes D&D what it is.

Also D&D Pope is a pretty good position. People treat you like you know all just because whatever you say is the company position, and if you get caught being flat out wrong you just say the rules dont even matter. You can say the rules don't matter when the rules are your whole job!

Why did D&D need a Pope? Like i know people tended to defer to Gary's rule clarifications, but i don't remember any single person being treated as Infallible the way 5E fans treat Jeremy Crawford.
