Fair enough MH, this is the first thing I have written entirely for this site, and I will take a stab at adding some content to it this decade. Check back with this post Monday November 1st 2010. Go to Comment

I have never forgotten about this one.  But today it was brought to my specific attention. I have made some changes.

I am sorry this didn't come across clearly, this is not about players that want to roleplay romantic love. I want this to be about putting romantic love to the game as a challenge, and making love a force in the game world.

But this also not argument as to something you should do, but a discussion of something you could do. Go to Comment

This kind of reminds me of Aspirations in the Sims - and I think this area could use more explorations.

A nice beginning, but like others have said, it could use more fleshing out. The article makes a compelling argument for reasons why to include love/romance in your game, unfortunately it stops short of giving tips on how to include it.



Expanding the article more with ideas on how to work romantic sub plots and interactions into ones game would make the article feel more complete to me, and vastly increase it's usefulness to readers.

An extremely good post about a topic that is glaringly absent from most supposed roleplaying activities. We (my players and myself) are trying to work that into our campaign. Since we do have Disads (Character flaws that help balance the character and give him 'hooks' for the GM to use), your idea of Addictions is a very good one, which we hadn't thought of.



Like most of the others, I would *love* to see your ideas on how to implement Romantic Love into a campaign. Please, please, give us some more. 4/5

I spent a couple of hours last night working with your idea, Alxerowes, and I thought you might like to see your idea in action, as it were. It is rules-specific, so I'll just give the basics, if anyone wants to know more, PM me.
In our system, a Psych Lim ranges from 5/0, which means not very common and doesn't change your outlook much to 15/10 (25 points) which means very common and of overwhelming importance. So a 5/0 is the girl you left behind at home that you think about occasionally but otherwise does not affect you through 15/10, which describes one of my characters who is madly in love with another character, is always near him, and would never do anything whatsoever to hurt him. She would get a 10 percent adder to any dice rolls that affect him and not have to worry about fear rolls and such when he is involved, and would probably go to pieces if anything bad happened to him. I'll present it to the gamers when we play tomorrow evening, but I am sure it will be accepted. Thanks again, Axlerowes. Go to Comment

This is cool - I think we should look at filling this one out with real-links for all of them.



 



Thoughts?

Excellent sub, (the youtube links are a nice touch!) This is a excellent resource for players of Bardic characters and/or GM's who want to add a touch of music to the taverns and inns without breaking with the genere (A few of these are perfect for Serenity & wild west games others for fantasy)



Great stuff!

A couple years back I had burned a bunch of songs of varying flavors for my own campaign (combat, defeat, travelling, high seas, blizzard, strange magic, etc).  Took me a while to compile.  Pity this wasn't available back then; would've saved me a lot of time and headache (particularly since I'm not all that musically inclined).

I love it when an article really makes me think.  This is a treasure for anyone who wants to enhance their musical presence within a game.  I'm going to have to kick this around in my head for awhile and see if I can come up with any more to add to the list.



5/5

A very good sub for bards and suchlike! How about

22) Introspective Songs
Inspirational

Makes the listener think about himself and about how he could make/do things better.

In Game: perhaps adds to his chances of success for an Intelligence or Will based skill.

Anyhow, a very good sub. 4/5 Go to Comment
