Something Wicked, This War Comes!! Weird Wars!



Well, today I finally managed to get some time to peruse through the lasted Savage Worlds "Weird War" book. And I really like it! The great weird war is finally upon us.

I love weird war stories, and I love GMing these games too.

But everyone, check it out! How awesome is this!?!

Anyways, I plan on writing a horror adventure and sharing it with those who want to run it.

I have had this idea brewing in my note book for about 4 years now! Good times ahead!

Conan Theme - Its getting there!



I managed to square away some more time today to work on the theme for fantasy grounds.

Here is the latest version of the Conan kickstarter theme. Feel free to leave suggestions!




Fixed up the sidebar buttons, and I also tweaked and added edges to the counters. Overall, I am liking what I am seeing.

Conan Kickstarter - WOW!!! What an experience! Theme for Fun!



Wow, what else is there to say about Modiphius's latest kickstarter?

Just wow!

Anyways, to help me deal with the withdrawal of not getting updates every few hours, or checking the status of the campaign, I figured I put my energies to good use.

So for a laugh I got the idea of making another Conan Themed Extension for Fantasy Grounds.  But this time, call it the Kickstarter Edition.

Here is my current work in progress, I just wiped this together in a few hours, I still have lots of work left to do on it.

Figured I share the image of it here, see if there any opinions that you would like to add or suggest. But I wish I had a better image of the Doom Pit and the Conan Logo, and I still need to dress up the Sidebar buttons as I not very fussy with how they look, still need to add more depth and shadow I think. But I was only able to work with what I could save from the kickstarter pages. Anyways.. let me know! Thanks!

Anyways, once I get this finished, I need to find out if I will be able to share this with others? If any of you out there can actually tell me that answer, feel free to leave a comment below.

Conan RPG: Doom Pit RPG

Still trying to mess around with a decent doom pit. I think I am getting closer to the style I want it to be tho.

"... 2 snakes coming together, facing each other..."

 

Trending Conan!

Figured I post this here, it looks pretty darn interesting to watch!

Get on for the ride! So excited about this!

Concept Idea, Doom Pit!


Hi all.

I am presently working on a way to capture the feeling of the doom tokens and momentum tokens used in 2d20 rpgs, more specifically Conan. After getting a few games under my belt now with the quickstart rules, I am quickly coming to realize that if you play this game on a VTT, you do not get that same feeling of dread you would if sitting around a table and looking at the pile of doom and momentum tokens grow.

So, I am currently working on a concept, so I quickly did a search for some old coins and turned them into tokens and made a rough image and called it the doom pit. Placing the tokens in the shared folder should allow the players to drag and drop these tokens into the area, allowing everyone to see quickly what is there and what is not.

Anyways, this is just a roughed out idea for now.

Let me know what you think, or any ideas you may have.





Thanks

Conan Quickstart RPG: Files to use with Fantasy Grounds.

Hi all,

*update*Files have been made Copy Right Friendly! :) Links below are active.

If anyone who knows me, they know that once I lock onto something, I tend to be flat out with it till I get what I want done, done.

Well, I am really looking forward to this Conan RPG Kickstarter, and I am going to want to play it when I get it. So, I took the time to make some files for it so I can play and get others to play on it.

Here is a mod file, which contains all the NPCs from the quickstart rules. Nothing else tho. (Don't worry, Google drive thinks this file is a video, just download it anyway when it asks)


The next thing I did was made a zip file which contains all the player characters from the Quick Start rules, which you can just unpack in the right folder and import them in.

I tried to automate everything, so if you want to get the full use of this you will need to run over to Fantasy Grounds and download the MoreCore extension.

Anyways,

Enjoy!

Conan: A Quick Start Game

Hi all,

Today, I had the honor and the privilege to get to play the new Conan RPG (Quickstart Rules) with some other fans of the new up and coming kickstarter rpg "Conan"

First of all, I would like to thank +Phil Garrad , who hosted and ran the game, and also invited me to play. Well me and 150+ other people. I was all over it!

Using only the tantalizing details of beginners version of the rules, and some crafty imagination skills, Phil managed to pull off a pretty great adventure for all of us .And I am pretty sure it was the first time for all of us to actually play the game, and we all had our copies of the quick start rules handy. And before to long, we all were hacking and slashing our way to a fun filled evening!

The game itself is very interesting, and the system of momentum vs doom is a great feature as it really helps the game have that 1980s Conan movie cinematic feel.  The game is not hard to learn, but it can be a little daunting for a GM to run a game if his players are not willing to know their characters. But the sooner the players start getting into knowing what can be done, the game really shines. I really can not wait to sink my teeth into running this game.

This game is easy and fun to learn and will no doubt lead to hours of entertainment around the table, or on your favorite virtual tabletop. And if you know me, it is Fantasy Grounds.

I look forward to part 2 of this fun adventure!

If you have not yet checked out the kickstarter, check it out now.. and get in on it. still 2 weeks left and it has already shattered their target goal and the stretch goals are already increasing the value of this purchase.

Again, I will leave you with a screen shot of my Conan theme for FG, and if anyone would like a copy of it, just let me know, and I will make it available for you.




Regards

Jolly
