Talisman

System Lancer TTRPG

TALISMAN, a sci-fi adventure set roughly 12000 years in the future.

It'll be using the Lancer TTRPG system via Roll20, a "Mud & Lasers" game with a good mix of narrative play and bombastic combat.

If you like the idea of piloting your own giant Mech suit, hacking into terminals with cybernetic implants, or stealing sought-after equipment from powerful MegaCorps, then this is the game for you.

Sometime in the millennium 2XXX, a catastrophic event dubbed “The Fall” decimated most of society, leaving us to struggle in the mess we created.

Those who survived managed to spread their wings and form a great interstellar Union of countless star systems.

The (give or take) 12,000 years it took to build this new utopia were fraught with violence, so it’s no surprise that remnants of these wars still remain today.

You are a newly licensed, fully-fledged pilot of your own personal mechanised chassis (or ‘Mech’ for short).

You could be a rusty engineer from the outer Cascades, a no-nonsense trader from the Karrakin Baronies, or even a simple baker from the deserts of Moonhammer.

Whoever you are, you’ve just been awarded your Lancer License – giving you access to state-of-the-art technology that some could only dream of.

As there is a light, and no its not over at Frankenstein's Place, but is the glimmer of in Real Life Tabletop Roleplay Games on Wednesday nights from 7pm at 8-10 Glanville Rd, Bromley BR2 9JA. I thought it prudent to highlight the games that will be running: Wyld - inspired by ancient Celtic and Germanic myth and legend from the European Iron Age. The Legend of The Moon Underwater - D&D 5E, Starting Level 10, ending level 17ish Lyre Lyre Pants on Fire - a group of not adventurers bragging and telling stories about their exploits to earn coin/beer/bed So how does this sign up system work? Well gone is the shared google sheet - yay I hear you cry Instead there is a form , dun dun dunnnnnn All you need to do is enter your name and select a minimum of two games you would like to play (you can select them all). How it works: Each member selects number of games being run -1, ie in this case three games are being run so you selected a minimum of two games you would like to play.  Th

Running your combat in "Theatre of the Mind" a different Roleplaying experience

First off this is not just limited to Dungeons & Dragons, but can be applied to all systems. How To Run Narrative Combat For those used to running RPGs using a gridded battle map and miniatures, running narrative "theatre of the mind" combat can feel both terribly strange and strangely familiar. If we're used to running combat on a 5 foot per square grid, the switch to combat in the theatre of the mind can easily make us feel like something is missing. How can we really know what's going on in combat if we can't see it? The answer lies in the other two pillars of our game—exploration and interaction. We don't set up battle maps and lay out miniatures when our characters have a discussion with an NPC. We likely don't set up a big map and start counting off squares when the characters explore an ancient ruin (although we can!). We don't have visual queues when we're describing how a thief narrowly avoids a poisoned pin while attempting to disarm
