From house rules to hacks to wholesale creation, the Cannibal Halflings take a delve into all things tabletop game design: tips, tricks, advice, history, systems, and games worth taking a look at.

2020      3 Comments             Tabletop RPGs are not realistic

and this is a good thing.
On one extreme we don’t really want to simulate the hygiene of our fantasy worlds, and on the other we don’t really want to play Apartment: The Playstationing.
What RPGs should and do have, though, is verisimilitude.
Verisimilitude is the appearance of being real, and in RPGs this means that the characters exist in a world which behaves in a way the players expect.
One place where games fall down in this respect is in having a world that changes around the characters, one that might even be responsive to their actions.
That is why I’m returning to my old stomping ground, the field of economics.

System Hack       System Hack: A Not-Advancement System for PbtA

July 8, 2020      Leave a comment             Every creative endeavor has a ‘how’ and a ‘why’.
Even if you don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it, your project will have something you’re trying to do or say, and then a method by which you do or say it.
A couple weeks ago.

I meditated on the prevalence and necessity of advancement in RPGs

coming to the conclusion that advancement as a story concept in games is a truism, a trope, and not necessarily a requirement.
That article provided me with a ‘why’; today we’re going to talk about one potential ‘how’.

2020      6 Comments             How much of a meme is RPG advancement

It’s so much of a meme that it’s right there in my pseudonym.
Levels, experience points, and the various versions of same filtered through the ‘ TSR don’t sue me’  lens have been considered inseparable from the notion of a tabletop RPG pretty much since D&D sold actual copies.
The notion of awarding experience points (or XP) has become so ingrained in the concept of an RPG that tack-on advancement mechanics are *the* thing added to video games to give them “RPG elements”.
The reason why this is the borrowed element is fairly clear: experience points have always been and continue to be an elegant mechanic to turn a game into a Skinner Box, to get us to keep pushing the lever in modern video games with perhaps repetitive mechanics.

So why do they continue to be a mainstay of tabletop RPGs

where there should be more going on than just watching numbers go up.
Well, read on.

May 20, 2020      2 Comments             In March of 2019, I began a project with a simple premise.
After having played  Cyberpunk 2020  for 15 years, I wanted to create a game that took everything I loved about the system and recast it into a game designed for me and how I run games.
Now, 14 months later, I’m happy to say that the first stage of this project is complete, and another set of System Hack articles is coming to a close.

System Hack       System Hack: Cyberpunk Chimera Cities

April 22, 2020      1 Comment             Cyberpunk lives and dies in the city.
The vision and aesthetic that we take for granted as Cyberpunk, especially when considering Cyberpunk in the context of games, is urban, replete with neon, skyscrapers, and bustling crowds of people.

Cyberpunk RPGs have leaned into the assumption of an urban setting for some time now

with Night City from Cyberpunk 2020 arguably being one of the best examples in terms of character and development.
When approaching the need for a city for the Cyberpunk Chimera, I opted to take a somewhat different path forward.
By writing rules for the creation of a city sandbox, my hope is that any group can find a city that sets the tone for their campaign while also making prep easier for the GM.

2020      2 Comments             We are here yet again with System Hack

Cyberpunk Chimera is a construction project that’s really gotten off the ground; all the important parts that turn a series of articles into a game have at least been sketched out or brainstormed.
There are some key elements, though, that shift the focus of the game in the direction that I’m most interested in.
There are two parts of the Cyberpunk genre which are often overlooked in RPG mechanics, either because they’re considered “setting elements” or because they aren’t part of what makes the genre science fiction.
These are the cities and the corporations, and their centrality is just as true in games as it is in literature and film.

March 11, 2020      2 Comments             In theory we all know what worldbuilding is.
The process of creating a fictional world isn’t technically related to role-playing games, but it has become inextricably intertwined with the hobby, given the preponderance of science fiction and fantasy settings in the most popular games.
In considering and examining worldbuilding, I’m not going to spend a lot of word count talking about what it is, or even how to do it well.
Instead, I’m going to talk about how worldbuilding affects RPGs specifically, which boils down to a lot of mistakes, missed opportunities, and general poor form.

After we look to the future, we pull aside the curtain for a discussion on secrets in roleplaying games: what kinds there are, when they go well and when they go awry, and how to make sure yours go the former way.

2020      Leave a comment             It is time once again for System Hack

Last time we took a look at the Cyberpunk Chimera, we thought about character creation and saw a lot of things come together.
Now, we’re examining one of the more emblematic elements of a near-future or modern RPG: the gear.
Cyberpunk 2020 was more than fine with giving players access to all sorts of goodies, like gatling shotguns, net guns, and various high-caliber borg droppers with recoil so powerful you needed cyberarms just to wield them.
There was also plenty of other equipment detailed, from electronics to vehicles to cosmetics, not to mention the cyberware.
Most of this equipment was either finely detailed (weapons, vehicles) or not detailed at all (pretty much anything that wasn’t implantable, driveable, or could kill people).
So when building out a new system and looking at equipment, we need to ask the question: What actually matters.
