Tell me of your homebrew setting, Usul.

Why are so many GM's obsessed with gritty/realistic/grimdark settings?

No.54034788 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
I've noticed a trend amongst games master's that they more often than not want to run low power level campaigns , with mechanics for injury loss, thirst and hunger , encumbrance and other finnicky things.

Players on the other hand tend to hate these mechanics and playing in these type of games.

Early roleplaying games had all sorts of quirky simulationist rules but as they advanced they lost them for cleaner rules that favoured the players.

Yet GM's still are finding ways to shoehorn such mechanics into modern games to give them a 'le gritty' feel. The resurgence of the likes of the West Marches Style games point towards this as well, which again GMs seem more excited about than players.

I'm trying to work out why this is?

Popular media like Game of Thrones in 'really' worlds could be one reason although such games existed long before that became famous.

Are GMs just on a power trip and secretly want to win the game? With these.mechanics allowing them to do so much more than ones that make it easy for players to heal, rest and advance in game.

What's that game? You know, the one you played a bunch as a kid, but you realise now wasn't that great?

Are there any games from your childhood that still stand the test of time?

"Won't touch it unless it's official" Edition

For all your questions on Dark Heresy (1st and 2nd Editions), Rogue Trader, Deathwatch, Black Crusade, and Only War.
Not the wargame, not Chapter Master, not Space Hulk. Inquisitor is okay, but not many people know about it.

Not sure between starting Dark Heresy 1e and 2e? Pick 2e.

>Why did FFG lose the 40k RPG License?
Because they were bought by Asmodee and that caused some sort of licensing conflict.

>Will GW make their own 40k RPGs now?
Probably not. But if they do it will likely be worse than you could possibly imagine.

Book Repositories (If you're planning to download any Rogue Trader materials, read the .txt file in the RT directory)

Besides the Horus Heresy and the modern Dark Millennium, do you ever consider running games in other periods, like the War of the Beast or the Macharian Crusades?

I have been playing 5e for three years and i got bored of needing multiple encounters to dry the players out of their resource so the combat is somewhat challenging, just so they can heal in 8 hours or 4 if they are elves

What game do you guys recommend i play? i thought in changing the game rules but players are so accustomed to how the game plays that i think its better to just change systems

Is Talos from The Night Lords omnibus /ourguy/?
He resents both chaos and the imperium, fighting for his nihilistic believes and the freedom from any serfdom.
