Great rpg material: Roman curses

December 5, 2006 at 11:19 am (Articles)

This discovery from the science blog gives some great rpg useful material, a curse to the god Maglus from Roman Leicester. You could use this as inspiration for a plothook in dnd, a mystery in CoC, or something strange in shadowrun.

I’d be using it in either dnd or cyberpunk,  as our cp runs with some magic going on.

Curse tablets from a roman background

 are thin rectangular sheets of lead bearing the ‘curse’ inscribed with a point or stylus. They were usually rolled up and were probably nailed to the wall of a temple or shrine.

Most curses seem to relate to thefts and typically the chosen god is asked to do harm to the perpetrator. It has been suggested, on the basis of name forms and the value of items stolen, that the curses relate to the lives of ordinary people, rather than the wealthy, and that they were perhaps commissioned by the dedicator from a professional curse writer.

Historians and writers, making our games easier to run 🙂

Sorting information for your rpg game

December 4, 2006 at 2:02 pm (Links)

TT praises the whiteboard. I used a blackboard for quite a while so i tend to agree.

Sorting information for a rpg can end up being rather hard. I have used a folder, a notebook, a zip disk and sometimes all of them ^-^

One suggestion I would make, stock up on clear plastic envelopes. Give one to every player and get them to keep their characters in them. One envelope per game per player, and you won’t lose any character easily.

Cp Game last night

December 1, 2006 at 12:31 pm (Cyberpunk)

I ran my Cp game last night. I changed from my normal night due to player request, it worked out ok, the one player who would have had difficulty can’t really make games this week anyway. Pity he would have added to last nights game.

But one player whose character is a a spiral downwards at the moment, ran into some trouble. He rolled a one, used luck, rolled another one, by our system thats 1,1 so a botch. He spent 4 luck to reroll, but this roll is on gm wim so I get to decided what to do, and rolled a 10 and then a three (you rerolled 10s and added them in cp) so a 13. So I decided what I was going to do something with that. I decided to see if I could make him betray the party. I warned him by commenting one theory where unlucky 13 came from, judas at the last supper.

He managed to get himself captured by poor tactics and failed rolls and he was being questions. The woman who was in charge started questioning him. He has also came across as a foreign spy. He was also threatened with death and mindstriping.

He had just described the party when they turned up. So the party was questioned by the npc to find out if they were spys. One said he was a nobel from a foreign country. A player not in the scene realised that saying that meant that the noble would be earmarked for mindstripping.

The party got out of it partly helped by npc mistakes but they learned a lot and got more clues to their situation in the maze. Then are now left with a possible midboss next game.

All in all a good game. The players did well and we had a good atmosphere.
