We roll up some characters for Zweihänder, the fantasy RPG from Grim & Perilous Studios. It's a Warhammer Fantasy clone, but that's fine because I have some fuzzy memories enjoying playing that over 25 years ago. My character is generated almost entirely randomly, which is interesting.

Metahuman News
Welcome to the new year, and a strange milestone in my life. The year was 1990, I was a free range tween living on the isle of Manhattan cast adrift with fresh babysitting cash and a desire for something new. This led to a mall, towering as they are in the city, where I found a glossy image calling from the shelves of, what I want to say was a KB Toy Store. The image, a yellow eyed solo smart gun in hand, wires plugged into their spine, rocking jacket, and a car with driver waiting. This was not another Dungeons & Dragons module, this was Cyberpunk.

That was nearly thirty years ago, and history has caught up to us. Of course if you haven't heard, Cyberpunk 2077 is now only a few precious months away, and there is a new tabletop game on the horizon as well. It's a good time to be a gamer. So, what does this have to do with Metahumans Rising?

With World Builders we wanted to give players new challenges. We've talked about the evolution of the Deadheads, and the expansion of military forces. Now lets talk about the Rippers.Working in the information sector there is a quote that has rings disturbingly true
"The Street finds its own uses for things - uses the manufacturers never imagined."
- William Gibson, Burning Chrome
This may be the founding doctrine of the Rippers.

“We’ve survived three alien invasions. The short version, poachers, harvesting humans for experimentation, an intergalactic turf war, and some Christopher Columbus types. Every last one of them left scars on this planet. Just like they left the kit they couldn’t recall. Throw in the occasional super jumpsuit that gets bopped and there's a whole lot of lost tech out there. What do Rippers do? We bash it, bag it, kit it, and thrash with it. Saddle up kid, it’s time to go fishing.”
- Tabby,, Astro Kiddie

The Ripper hierarchy is as follows:
Gutter Scraps
Benders
Tough Nuts and Gunners
Junk Dogs
Astro Kiddies
Docs
Mic Droppers
Wreckers and the Glitterati

Over the next few weeks we will explore what this means, and who the Rippers are as a group.

So I'm looking at RPG rules again I really like the way the Apocalypse World Engine works with moves for both the players and MC. I am not so keen on the conceit of unique (and proliferating) playbooks and the asymmetric nature of the rules set. Specifically I'm looking at Dungeon World and it seems to be an unwritten rule that there is no direct player on player conflict. Has anyone out there played with modifying and do you have any thoughts on how that could work?

We're closing out the year with a final one page adventure. Well, not so much one page adventure as a short adventure. What started out as a simple short evolved into a full rescue scenario. Before we get to the adventure, a bit of background. Metahumans Rising has a full setting developed for it. Unfortunately, a lot of the content moved to stretch goals help keep our Kickstarter goals manageable. Now, don't think that just because we missed those screen shots the original setting for Metahumans Rising is lost forever. As we develop new content, expect to learn more of our in house setting. So, why is this important?

Some fans of Metahumans Rising may have noticed a few references to the Eisenreich that snuck into the core book. So, who are the Eisenreich? Nothing short of modern day Nazis who survived World War II by going underground, literally. And, who better to try and kidnap and attempt to usurp the power of Santa? So our Christmas adventure also includes a brief introduction to one of the factions we wish we could have included in the core book.

Without further ado, we offer you Stille Nacht – The Iron Santa Initiative a Silver Age inspired adventure.

So we didn't finish Rise of the Runelords on Monday, but we're getting close and ended in the middle of the final battle. Most of Karzoug's allies are down, but the party's main fighter has been mazed and won't be coming back for a while unless someone can do something about it.

Thanksgiving may be over, but that doesn't mean we have to stop having fun with the holiday. It's time to revisit an old friend, Gobbler! Genetically engineered to be the prefect turkey, this giant bird triggered a rampage years ago. This year, having healed it's wounds, Gobbler falls on the city with an army of giant wild turkeys!

The article includes a short set up, Gobbler's army, and a stat block for the burning butter breathing turkey or terror themselves. Enjoy! http://housedok.com/gobbler-ii-the-tide-of-turkey/

Our last session of Blades in the Dark before we break for December. Prepping for Blades is definitely a lot easier than something like Pathfinder, but also the way the game is structured makes it harder to have more complicated plots with different levels of investigation needed.

I made these dwarves as proxies for rhulics in warmachine, i am planning on making these available but haven't put them up on thingiverse yet.
I want to make sure that they are not infringing on privateer press' IP. The only trouble are the guns, since the shields are quite different the heads are completely different, the bodies are basically generic 17th century musketeer bodies with a few steampunk twists, and the backpacks are also generic. I am currently considering making some pikeneer versions, and i think i will make some real muskets for them, before i put them on thingiverse.

Another of my models. this one was one of the first models i put up on thingiverse. you can find it here including supports for printing on a resin printer. They can be removed if you prefer using the supports from your slicer. This particular model was printed on a wanhao d7 v1.5 (if my memory serves me right)
Resin print is amazing for miniatures, i would argue that for a good model the quality is absolutely comparable to bought miniatures.

I am finished with the Phill page and will be publishing tomorrow as is my custom (for the newcomers - it is my comic that is published at mu @Katharsisdrill profile).

So this is an evening drawing or rather painting. I can see that colours are worth more than black and white even though I find the painting easier than drawing. But truth is that I haven't really used much time on coloured digital pieces as I am not happy about computer colours. When you have been working with real colours in other medias, the RGB diodes behind a plastic screen is a bit poor.

None the less with digital painting things can be achieved very fast compared to real painting... and it is fun. So here is a fast piece of a creature called a Kläkser, which was invented for an old roleplaying game that my brother and I invented when we realised that you could not play a orc wizard. In time many things were added some invented by other gamemasters and this creature was one of them.

I post most of my models on my thingiverse profile as well so if you are interested in the stl files thats where to look - at least for the time being.

Our dive into the new factions for World Builders 1 takes us back to the Deadheads (https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FMetahumansRising%2Fposts%2F974825189550459), it's time to start looking at some of the members of the gang.

Deadheads, Fresh Meat (Exceptional Thugs + 2 Templates)
These are the foot soldiers, naive and ready to show off the tricks they’ve picked up. The Sickness Syringe is a vile concoction of narcotics and chemical residues from the Deadhead drug labs.

Deadhead, Bloodletters (Low Powered Thugs + 2 Templates)
In for a penny, in for the dreadful. Bloodletters have earned their scars. While they have not been fully initiated into the Deadheads, they have learned to maim, even kill without remorse. Bloodletters often craft a glove with multiple syringes and razorblades as both a tool for enforcement and a status symbol before they earn their first mask.

Deadhead, Initiate (Low Powered Enforcers + 4 Templates)
Those who show enough devotion, and follow the rites of the Deadheads are eventually shown rituals that grant a death like state purging them of fear, and pain. Imbibing a liquid they refer to as icor, a twisted concoction of chemicals and arcane reagents, the Deadhead opens themself up to powerful necrotic magic. Initiates possess an eerie presence, with pail withered skin. Once initiated the Deadhead almost always wears a surgical mask to hide their mouths, and their supernaturally sharp teeth. When things are serious initiates are almost present to lead the Meat and Blood.

Our Blades in the Dark session was mostly dealing with Downtime, and figuring out what the options were for that, but we also selected the next Score, and did some pre-planning for that. Planning is something that Blades in the Dark tries to force you away from, but it's one of the most fun parts of the game, so it's going to be interesting to see how this plays out.

Sorry for the delay, last week saw an impromptu trip and so our regular update was delayed.

Metahuman News
Last week we completed the second play test of World Builders 1. In this post test we focused on Neighborhood Watch. The heroes included Otis, a high powered time manipulator and crack pilot, Strife, a classic power martial artist, and Heliquin, who you may recognize from the Hall of Legends. With each character coming from different power levels this allowed us to play with the Bonus Willpower mechanics as well, pushing our clown princess to a whopping 14 Willpower for the scenario.

Running with the premise that the heroes were traveling through space, we had them landing at a space port for repairs. This is where Neighborhood Watch kicks in! The players select the following Talents to define the spaceport.
  • Heliquin, Acrobatics, to explore the stations gravity.
  • Otis, Street Smarts, looking to find out about the local underworld.
  • Strife, Fitness, as she is the girl who swole.
After three rolls and related questions had the following:

Hive Space Port
1. Spaceport has faulty gravity generators
1. Space port is home to a race of alien warriors - they are the dominate culture in the port and make up a large portion of the security detail.
1. Zero-G Dancers/Theater
1. Trade is primarily handled through barter
1. Squatter communities have cropped up in areas normally not accessible due to the gravity issues.
1. Muscle head culture is prevalent
1. Gang of dirty merchants run an illegal protection racket in the main bazaar.

Otis, also sets up our conflict, based on his roll, as the merchant gangs.

Taking a short break, we whipped up some alien gangsters and went to town in a classic bar room battle royal complete with tentacles and blasters.

Overall, the session ran about 3 hours and everyone seemed to enjoy the mechanics of neighborhood creation. To touch on the bonus Willpower before we go, this allowed Heliquin, a low powered street vigilante to hang tough, acting as the team's face despite her frightening nature, and when the shooting started.

I have been doing a bunch of thinking about what @Beloch Shrike 's post at "A Place for Games" forum:

https://www.troikarpg.com/forum/general/on-the-post-g-social-conundrum

I got a chance to really think again on the fediverse platforms out there.

I think I am really wondering about #plume or #zot (the big gun!) as a space needed.

It would need a good collective of people.

#RPGs I bought at #luccacomicsandgames2019

On might thews: this has been on my list for ages, I'm eager to try it but it mixes fantasy adventure setting with a simple story driven system, it should be perfect for my tastes

Microscope: I didn't know but I'm credited at the end of the Italian edition because the publishers decided to bring it to Italy after they played a demo with me at a convention a few years ago. I was so honored! I bought the game and made them sign it :3

Burning opera: I worked on the translation/editing and got my free copy, yay!

The Warren: now that the pbta-invasion is over, I can read a pbta without feeling bored immediately. Since I'm re-reading watership down with my wife, I managed to convince her to buy the game, let's see if we actually get to play it!

Star-crossed: I followed the Kickstarter and the Italian edition came as a surprise. I played it at lucca with a friend of mine (it was his first rpg game ever <3) and I liked it, especially how short it is.

What new games did you buy/play recently? :D

My latest Roll20 game is Blades in the Dark, for which we had our first session of character creation on Friday evening. Blades is a very non-typical RPG, so I think it's going to take some getting used to to run, but I like the setting and idea so I'm willing to give it a try. The crew our a cult of a Forgotten God, based in the ruins of an old abandoned church in the district of Six Towers. Next week should be our first actual adventuring session.

Work on World Builders 1 continues, but we're taking a break this week for a free story seed. This adventure was designed with younger players in mind, as such we take our inspiration from trick or treating. We hope everyone has a safe and fun holiday, be it Halloween, Día de Muertos (the Day of the Dead), Samhain, Girl Scout's Founders Day, or National Doorbell Day.

The Unending Halloween
In this light heated one page adventure, the heroes must defend the city from Jack O’Lantern, the spirit of Halloween. Jack has demanded all the trick or treater's candy, or be cast into an unending Halloween night! Time is fleeting. The heroes will need to act quickly if they hope to save Halloween before Jack's madness takes control.

Designed for all ages, Gms can scale the challenges to any Power Level. The story seed can be located here: http://housedok.com/jack-olantern-rising-a-spoopy-halloween-story-seed/

Author's Note: We want to take a moment to acknowledge the religious and spiritual significance of Día de Muertos and Samhain. While Halloween can be a fun holiday, it has deep roots in Gaelic traditions and has seen a revival in modern times. Día de Muertos is a Mesoamerican tradition honoring family and loved ones that predates the conquest of the Americas.

Metahumans News
But first this: Jacob Wood, the creator who helped lay out Metahumans Rising has launched their newest Kickstarter. Survival of the Able explores the idea of a zombie uprising, thanks to the black plague, with characters that are challenged in ways we don't often see in fiction. It's a great concept and uses Fudge for a resolution engine. Take a look (and help support a great Kickstarter): https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/accessiblegames/survival-of-the-able

Now back to your regularly scheduled Metahumans Neews.. .

This week we'll dig into the first of the four factions inside World Builders 1: The Deadheads. Originally published as an example of how to add color to typical street gangs we saw the Deadheads as an opportunity to explore seedier elements of the Metahumans Rising world.

In the intersection between hard drugs and goth subculture sits the Deadheads. On the outside they are a low level street gang, catering to a clients who may otherwise ind it hard to obtain their addition of choice. Police see them as little more than organized pushers, and hardly on the level of an international cartel. This is of course intentional.

The Deadheads indoctrinate members with the promise of hidden truths, and for those strong enough, eternal life. Members learn centuries old rituals and rites, at first these are cloaked in goth trappings, allegories and games. Those who can see between the narratives, are brought deeper into the fold. Shown the truth behind the tails and shown how to harness the power trapped in their own blood.

For some this revaluation is too much. Their spirits unable to comply with their bodies desires, they are split, becoming undead husks. Those that survive learn to command these husks, even call back their souls binding them to mystics and necromancers.

Why this cult of immortals has chosen now to reach out from their ancient homes, or why they need to expand their numbers remains a mystery. Nevertheless, one should take care when exploring the underside of the city. There are things that lurk below the streets, aware of horrors beyond the imagination of most, who are willing to take you with them. The only price, one soul.
