I just finished my translation of the main rulebook for a free Japanese indie RPG called LOST. The game mixes the setting of Tokyo Jungle (post-apocalyptic Japan overtaken by huge forests and wildlife) with a game system reminiscent of Darkest Dungeon (focus on base expansions to improve stats, resource management, risk vs. reward consideration).

I literally translated this across many, many lunch breaks at work and threw it up as-is onto a Wordpress blog. I know it still needs some work before it's really 'done'. But it's playable right now and I'd love for people to read it, play it, and tell me what I need to fix/improve. I'm in close contact with the original creator, so if there's things that can be fixed/expanded on in the actual mechanics I'm sure they'd love to hear about it.

Going forward, next steps are:
Translate the sample scenario and sample session
Go back through and make grammar and translation fixes as well as improvements based on feedback
Finalize a PDF of the core rules
Translate and make a PDF of the expansion material

Please take a look.

You fail in that you miss the exp reward for actually clearing the Field, but you still fight the Boss. I imagine this rule exists with Japanese single-session play in mind so people still get to do the cool final battle before they go home no matter how the mission goes.

I wonder about if futurama fans (myself included) are giving a fair shake to old futurama versus new futurama when it comes to the pop culture references. They abounded in the past, and they could easily constitute a majority or centrality of the episode. The Napster/Lucy Lu episode, the beck one. If I wasn't tired and lazy I could think of more.

I'll check out this series eventually.
>>59910962
I thought of bart too when I saw him but I am sure that nose showed up in futurama somewhere, so I'll wait to see the personality.

>It follows the misadventures of hard-drinking young princess Bean, her feisty elf companion Elfo, and her personal demon Luci.
>That's an elf


Well bonus points for going old-school keebler elf. I'm not sure how much three characters can really carry the show. Then again it was Fry/bender/leelah at first.

it makes sense in more complex games, but hearthstone is designed for babby simple and has more rng than pokemon.

Sure, the card effect is identical to Donate, which has all kinds of fun potential, but in the context of that specific game, there's basically no use for it.

You're forgetting the parts where they say that women literally have no real brain power because they're effectively lines (the more angles you have, the smarter you are) and that they have to keep them caged in their rooms because they can just go apeshit for "no reason" and then completely forget what just happened.
>>
>>59914809
Yep. The vampires are actually just a human sub-species of super-intelligent cannibalistic sociopaths with the ability to go into suspended animation to allow the local human population to recover, since unlike most predators they didn't breed significantly slower than their prey. They were rediscovered after a failed attempt at gene therapy for curing autism, since as it turned out some cases of it and other mental disorders were just dormant vampire genes.

Their relevance in the broader plot is that it is implied via their "omni-savantism" and complete sociopathy that vampires had begun to evolve towards non-sentience before they went extinct.

None of the discard hate cards have that sort of "must choose this card" clause, so they would only be useful if you had one card in your hand, and if they've been playing multiple copies of discard spells (of course they would), they've already seen your hand.

What would be the strength and population of a moderately successful modern (21th century) byzantine empire? "Moderately" means no Wanks, but it wouldn't become the Sick man of Europe either. National borders would be picture.

If the mongols conquer persia and mesopotamia with less of a bloodbath wouldn't they put this new found manpower against this more mordern ERE?

Or would genghis be more likely to just try to open trade with them. I think the khan would find it more profitable then to lose his horde on the walls of Constantinople. That by your scenario is defended by early cannons.
>>
>>59909078
>>59902853
Genghis didn't set out to conquer Persia until the Khwarezmids killed his representatives, his main goal was always China. He'd almost certainly be happy to accept tribute from the Romans. Conflict between the Romans and the Golden Horde could happen later on if an Emperor gets tired of paying tribute and sees the dissolution of the Il-khanate as a sign of weakness in the Mongols, leading to him insulting the Golden Horde by ending tribute. A Mongol invasion of the Balkans would be pretty tough on the countryside and the peasant farmers, but I foresee such an invasion going more like the Second Mongol Invasion of Hungary than the First.

Why don't more science fiction settings have demihumans? You would think that in a future where adding animal ears, a couple fangs, and a tail to a human being is an easy procedure that there would be quite a few eccentric people running around as catgirls or dogboys or something else.

>>59912398
Yeah, I've considered the fact of there is more stuff on Earth, I'm still flexible on that setting though I have thought of some things about it being more specific to Venus.

I like the idea of having seaplanes and such showing up, though I'm trying to find a compromise between tech existing and lack of tech, as I'm trying to come up with a good reason for their low tech society and dependence on salvage rather than reverse engineering. One thought I've had is most of the advanced ruins being really hard to rework stuff, glass that's actually stuff like ALON, metals like tungsten and titanium and other hard materials hard or impossible to repurpose, and the really really old ruins full of the like NASA era scrap and such would be the actually desirable salvage, because steel and copper is so much easier to work with than ceramics and fibre optics.
Consistent theming is a hard thing to pull off I've found.

I might reconsider Earth, but we kind of have a boring topography, while Venus will be something new and interesting for players, plus humans will have hung out on there long enough to make plenty of things for later races to find.
I've also kind of become attached to Venus's 225 day year, it would make characters in the setting younger technically since their year would go faster than an Earth year, but would fit, as I've taken to calling my setting Children of Venus, I've also decided to make most Kemonomimi be smol as in less than 5ft tall, with horses and oxen being the exceptions to this who are more human sized, because I like the imagery of a race of small people exploring the abandoned ruins of people bigger and more advanced than them and I've divided the year up into 10 months, which correspond to the animals of the Chinese Zodiac which is an inspiration both for the types of Kemonomimi there are, and their mythology. It's 10 and 12 because snakes and dragons both hold a different significance to them, and aren't races.

As for I'm trying to go for the more bittersweet melancholy as well, they aren't in a bad position, sometimes times are tough, and they are surrounded by ruins of a much more successful time, but hey, life overall isn't bad, and unlike the people who left these ruins behind, they're still alive. There's a comfortable life for those who want to stay put, but wanderlust is hard to satisfy when there's a world of unknown to (literally) dive into.
