Arcane / Legends of Runeterra RPG – What system would I use?

I have wanted to have an RPG system to run a game in Runeterra (the setting for League of Legends/Legends of runeterra/Arcane) and we even dedicated a FluffnCrunch episode to it (Links: Anchor / Spotify). Now having watched Arcane (which was awesome by the way – check it out) I wanted to start having a […]

2d20 Eclipse Phase

So in 2017, while waiting for the Infinity book I ran a 2-session game of Eclipse phase (continuity – a starter adventure) using 2d20. Most of it was scribbled on paper but I’ve managed to find some of the notes so I can write them up. This is a pretty barebones hack, but it worked for […]

Numenera [HACKED] Cortex plus quick Hack

I Preorded Numenera (because it looked interesting and i thought it would be cheaper) I Read Numenera (and it was interesting) I am Hacking Numenera (Because i feel like it! And the sytem is iffy) Cortex plus, specifically Heroic, actually seems to lend itself better to Numenera than the system MC has designed. Well, in […]

Fantasica Hack (and other games)

For the past week i’ve been playing Fantasica on android and a bunch of other mobage games. Fantasica is interesting as it matches up well with the MHR 3 affiliations. There are 3 attack stats (Ground, Air, Sea), 3 classes (melee, ranged, magic), 3 misc stats (speed, range, cost)  and a handful of special abilities. […]

Google Hangout Session

Wow! just ran a game on google hangout with one of my players. Since we both have young daughters and can’t leave the house we thought we’d try a RP session on hangout. Used Dicestream for die rolling and then Googledrive with sketchpads and note pages. IT worked great. Sketchpad was useful to have images […]

My Fantasy World : The World

The world The Gifted world is huge. There are many areas and many nations. Most are controlled by the dark lords and their legions. Terrain is varied but does occur more frequently in certain parts.

My fantasy world…the beginning

The opening crawl to my WIP world…Subject to change! Long ago Gods and Titans and Dragons fought. Both gave portions of their power to normal people to help them. The side of Good and Order won. The Evil gods, dragons and Titans were imprisoned or banished. Then there was mostly peace. Countries fought, and The […]

Fantasy Heroic RP (cortex+)

Finally got the draft preview of fantasy heroic for MHR. has some cool additions to MHR and a bunch of optional rules. Need to stat some characters up before i commit to it. definetly happy with the monsters, but the Characters still lack stats and i find it hard to run a D&D clone without […]

My Gaming Worlds

I’ve talked before about not being able to find the right system but i think i basically have. Cortex plus does everything i want except have a world. I also really like the WFRP system, soon to be used in Star Wars, but its not very hackable so i’m ignoring it. I’m also fascinated with […]


So i’m currently on Holiday in Portugal… Can’t post a lot but ideally can find time to write. Here’s what i’m hoping to work on soon… Werewolves for WFRP3 Gear for Hunters in MHR Nightfall More characters for MHR Nightfall More Morphs for Cortex Eclipse Phase More Wood elf careers for WFRP3 Monster careers for […]

Nightfall – Hunters

Rookie 5-10 dice Experienced 10-15 dice Veteran 15-20 dice Elite 20-25 dice a dice means d6=1, […]

Nightfall – Werewolves

So, werewolves. Like vampires, there is more than one kind of werewolf… 1. Humans that turn into wolfman hybrids. 2. Humans with the ability to turn into hybrids and wolves. 3. Humans who turn into wolves, sometimes really big wolves. Okay i’d quite happily see 3 dissapear. But to represent these in MHR, the main […]
