Anonymous writes "Vajra Enterprises has just released a free lite version of their critically acclaimed Tibet the RPG. The Tibet RPG Monastic Edition is a complete RPG but only has the setting info, skills, equipment and character creation info pertaining to monastic characters (Tibetan monks and nuns). You might think ‘Monks and nuns? That sounds boring, what do you do, sit around in a temple all day and pray?’ Yet the world of Tibetan monasticism is full of political intrigue, sex, violence, powerful magic and dangerous rituals.

Spice up the starport in your space opera campaign
[Role Playing Games] Posted by Matt-M-McElroy on Wed, Oct 25 @ 08:27 AM

Anonymous writes "Starports can be a fantastic location for adventures, but a busy gamemaster may not have a chance to come up with an interesting encounter for the PCs when they next pass through one. This is where 15 Starport Encounters can step in to help.

15 Starport Encounters offers the busy gamemaster 15 different encounters to involve the PCs in when they next visit a starport. Each encounter suggests 3 different possible explanations (giving 45 different scenarios in all). You can choose to use one of the explanations as-is, combine several explanations into one, or use them as a springboard for your own ideas. To give each encounter even more flexibility, several complications are suggested that may make the PCs lives even more interesting.

A few of the situations the PCs could find themselves dealing with include:

  • Mysterious datastick
  • Conspiracy theories
  • Long lost friend?
  • Woman in need
  • An old flame
As an additional aid for the busy gamemaster, 15 Starport Encounters includes several tables of suggestions for NPC names, ship names, bar and club names, as well as shop names for places the PCs may visit.

15 Starport Encounters can be used with any system.

Pages: 12 + cover
SKU: POL3004
Price: $2
