Hunter's Moon RPG - Work in progress
« on: January 03, 2016, 12:53 »

Hey all,

Even thought my last post on the subject didn't get that much any attention, I'm still sure there are some fellow enthusiasts among you, giving me no reason not to get on your nerves with yet another thread on the same. As I explained earlier, I'm working on a new RPG and have been for some time now. This is something I've been trying on multiple occasions over the last decade or so, and usually with nothing to show for it. This time, however, I feel I'm on to something. Not only have I found a setting that I deeply wish to discover for myself, I'm also working on a lean system to support it.

Since I kept going around in circles for the past couple of months, I decided to try a new approach to development: in order to both catalog and expand my ideas as well as to practice my writing by intertwining them with parts of a story, I launched a blog on Wordpress to which to publish all of this. At the moment, it's pretty much just a vanity thing, although I hope to at least end up with something with which to entertain myself and others around me. Should it turn out to be a marketable idea, I'll gladly take that opportunity to take it out into the world. I'm not expecting anything, though.

In the meantime, some kind of sounding board would be nice to have. At some point, I'd like to do one or more PBF test runs right here on the forum. For those of you who are prone to that kinda thing, I'd be honored if you were to keep an eye on my efforts and give me some feedback every now and then. In a couple of months, I hope to welcome you beneath the Hunter's Moon.

Thanks.

Hah, no. I hope to go for a more subtle kind of horror/suspense. Far out trailer, though.

Ooh! Majestic! A hunter is a hunter, even on an unrelated forum.

Hi again,

It's time for a trial run by means of PBF. I've been brooding on some mechanics ideas over the past month, and I think the best way to explore them is by seeing this in action. I want to do a short and casual story, so a lack of solid availability shouldn't be too much of a problem. Any volunteers for players - Thiebs? Malek? Mr. Zicher, I'd be honored to have you on board on this one as well...

Gimme a shout if you're interested, whoever you are.

Cheers,


Dee

I'm happy to try it out, so long as availability and such isn't strict. Your blog has been dead for a month or more, I'm glad to see you weren't completely idle with it! ;)

Hell no, but time is a rare commodity lately, plus I've been doing research into the background and mucking about with statistics. To be continued shortly, possibly as the PBF gets going.

Glad to have you on board.

Guess I have to jump on your blog to see what I am to expect. But sure, count me in, I should be available for most of the time now.

Stilll waiting for one more application (from outside...ish of the forum). In the meantime:

I've not created a very clear Character Building thingy yet. At first, I'm much more interested in characters than I am in stats anyway. Please give some thought as to what kind of character you'd like to play. We're talking a US citizen in the interbellum period of the previous century. Use film noir and/or detective stories as a guideline. A PI would naturally fit the bill, but so would a reporter, a policeman, a criminal from just about any walk of life, a scientist or scholar, a blue collar workman, a nighthawk... the only real restriction I have to impose is a more or less decently functioning moral compass, pointing towards the 'Good' end of the spectrum overall.

Also take into account that racism, sexism and all other kinds of bigotry and prejudice were very common back then. This may impact your character if you choose not to play a white male.

I'll probably be offline for a couple of days, feel free to spew forth some ideas in the meantime.

Ah, good, that makes us complete. Has anyone had any ideas on characters yet?

I'm thinking of someone who knows about some of the horrors that wait in the dark.  He's a WW1 vet who saw things one shouldn't and then spent years learning things that can't be unlearned.  If you have problems that draw you into the shadows, he's the sort of person you go to for help.  Think of him as the Miskatonic University Professor or the librarian in Arkham.
