Perhaps there is some sort of seasoning that must continue to stream?

Also for dune, I just used dark heresy. Rebranded all the imperial names, made lasguns do as cannon damage and crazy shit when they hit shields and gave mentats unnatural int.

I think it's just because I'm British. There wasn't any big fuss over the short over here. Also, everyone had it in there heads that animated doll-people = for kids while robots in a post-apocalyptic wasteland draining people's souls = for adults.

There's some homebrew for 3.5 and 4e. 3.5 is a really shitty writeup. It treats you like a monk, so in 3.5 style it makes goddamn sure that you have a million skill checks to roll before you make an attack for 1d8.

4e is less insane, but it's also got some non-sensical powers needs a bit of tweaking to be any good. Like the fact that the Bloodbender paragon path waits until 20 to give you legitimate bloodbending (Not even moving guys around until then.)

You don´t know how happy this would make me.
´actually tried to write it myself two years ago
More than 80 pages of sparse chrunch and made up, canon-twisting fluff
It´s a 3.x hack, using psionic mechnics for magic.
It´s made all by myself, who never had any never had any practical experience playing any real structured, (as opposed to freeform) RPG, so all my sytem knowledge comes from reading the SRD and some pirated splats, and lurking the GitP forums

That´s sad , isn´t it?

>> No.30396067

After a cursory lookover this makes me think It might run Fate or other games set in the Nasuverse fairly well?
The lettered ranks are already there, just swap out the attributes for str/end agi/magic/luck/ptantasm/, builld class skills and NPs the same way as stands, make your magic style (as in Shirou´s projection, Tosaka familly jewelcraftt) and your servant´s identity a Core trait,

Your motivation and tactics are Significant, as Is a Servant´s fame , against which you could roll Luck or another appropriate skill (like Endurance for Berserker ) to gain a temporary bonus to your other skils, but this runs a risk of revealing your identity, Wich gives those who know a Significant spwcifially to counter you

And the really gonzo stuff like Rin´s uber powerful gems and Avalon are Rare traits.

Finally, noble phanthasm and really powerful things may be abe to singificantly debuff people by forcing them to burn a rank (Gaebolg burning End, anyone?) but again with a possibilty of reavaling your identity.

Just throwing ideas out there, how does this sound?

There are sooo many hints in the movie of a completely different end-game. It felt like someone cut the ending and stuck a different on one it.

Wheel of Time's RPG is basically 3.5. Channeling is slightly less OP than D&D, and the Armsman class is actually slightly better than the fighter. More skills and proficiencies, though it oddly it doesn't get a feat at 15th level, even though it gets one at every odd level before and after that and it doesn't get any special abilities at that level.
