Time to play a game, /tg/.

You post a picture from a show, movie, video game, whatever. Then you name one (1) unlikely TTRPG it fits into.

I'll start us off: Rogue Trader.

>> No.24182041

We actually hacked Dungeons: The Dragoning to play that, and they're perpetually broke on that show. Good try, though.

Is it that the anime inspired by D&D was used as a stand-in for D&D? Because it seems to me that it's that the anime inspired by D&D was used as a stand-in for D&D.

>> No.24182336

>Combat focused

The premise, sure, but actual combat was all about LITERAL conceptual entities.

Shit, Griever is literally Strength given form, and the strongest spell in the game is created when the Final Boss uses her mastery of time and space to summon a version of her that ALREADY KNOWS IT, because she made it up.

FF8's explanation for magic is even more fucked than most universes'.

Lodoss Wars and The Slayers were based on B/X D&D

Sword World (Japanese D&D) was based on Lodoss Wars and The Slayers and used Lodoss Wars as its setting.

>> No.24183005

Isn't Rune Soldier Louie set within the same world as Lodoss or something?

Yep. Same world, different continent.

Firefly has almost nothing in common with Cowboy Bebop.

Too bad it's a meme so will be forever repeated.

>> No.24183060


>> No.24183066

Thats because Rune Soldier was originally a replay printed in Dragon Monthly, just like Lodoss Wars.

Dragon Monthly, being the same publisher who distributed Sword World, used the Rune Soldier replay as a way to flesh out more of the setting. Even though none of the writers, artists or players from Lodoss were involved with Rune Soldier.

I think there's a Jojo mod for Apocalypse World, actually. I don't have it on hand, but I could pester my DM when he comes online next.

>> No.24183159


A friend of mine is writing a JoJo's inspired system with a few ideas from Apocalypse and Dogs in the Vineyard, emphasizing the clever bullshit and tactics most protagonists have to use to overcome otherwise superior foes.

Joseph and Josuke's arcs in particular come to mind.

I am actually going to go back through my copy of D:tD and make a Paragon of B-Ball.

I bet you could do it with Pendragon too. Just mash it up a little bit and don't restrict masculine/feminine skills.

Don't Rest Your Head.

Discipline:Discipline, Exhaustion:Drive, Madness:Synch.
Instead of an Exhaustion Talent, you have a Drive Talent. Instead of a Madness Talent, you have a Synch Talent, which represents a quirk of your AT Field when piloting an Evangelion. Occasionally, it might have uses outside an Evangelion as well, but they won't be overt (IE if you have, say, Repulsion, which lets you throw things around with your Field, it might manifest as some quirk of your bod language that makes people leave you alone).

You can roll Synch Dice when you aren't in an Eva, just for the chance of additional successes, but of course still risk checking off a Fight or Flight response.

Snapping, I believe, would represent some kind of contamination from the Evangelion Unit, but this hasn't yet come up.

Instead of Crashing when your Exhaustion caps out, you Burn Out. It's less fatal than Crashing in stock DRYH, but still cripples you mechanically for awhile.
