Uncle Richard's Meet & Greet / Re: Finding Those TriTac Peoples
« Last post by ORtrail on September 21, 2020, 02:30:01 PM »
If you are into using Discord, there is an active channel with several members here in Oregon.  Most of them are pretty busy with other RPGs, work, and wildfires, but at a couple of them would be willing to try some Tri Tac games.

'Babies With Knives' is the specific Discord channel.  There are virtual tables for meeting and playing online, though we managed to meetup in person last year for Free RPG Day in Portland.  Good times.

Interesting, I'm out here in Eastern Oregon.  More West Coast members here than I thought there might be.  I tend to assume people are on the East Coast.

If we get a few more, we could run an online game in the same timezone :)

Its few and far between when I meet a fellow TriTac player or GM.  Figured I'd open this thread to connect.

Hi, I'm William, I'm in Marysville, Wa

Awesome news regarding the art.  I've got a lot of stock art (if you thought the Rogue 417 adventure was bad....) I'm planning to use, but some from the core books would be nice too.

Well, if I am not the only one writing, I am fine with OpenQuest or OpenD6 or whatever. But I just don't have the feel for d100 to be the main developer. 

I played and GMed D&D, AD&D, d20, True20 and homebrews based on D&D for the most part.  And Savage Worlds and FUDGE and a couple other games short term, when I was trying to learn systems.  But no d100.  I joined Tri Tac just before Richard started working on the d20 books, and after that he went systemless.

Yes, we own all the art in the early books.  If I can figure out who the artist was, I do try to put them in the acknowledgments.

Chaosium seems to have done pretty well over the decades, despite being burdened with a D100 system.   :)

I'm sorry to hear about Robin.  Lost my mom to lung cancer back in July, so I hardly needed another reason to lament how much our lives are affected these days by one type of cancer or another.  Gaming has been a nice distraction for me.

It's funny, what we learned early is often what makes the most sense to us when it comes to game systems.  I mean, to me rolling percentage dice was a revelation.  What's my chance of success?  50%?  I understand that.  Needing to roll a 10 or better on 3D6?  Not so clear.  My main complaint about the system these days would be the Skill lists tend to be too bloated.

OpenD6 strikes me as a nice compromise system; it has a long history (and fan base) and fairly easy rules.  I reserve the right to change my mind on that though, as I dig into the specific OpenD6 system in comparison to other takes on it like the new Zorro The Roleplaying Game which adds static defensive numbers among other changes. 

Letting William be the proverbial canary-in-the-coal-mine seems the best course of action at this time, if he's still healthy a month from now....   :o

Forgot I wanted to ask:

Does Tri Tac have the rights to the art used in the core books?  So, like the art for the Kymnar could be used in the adventure I'm writing for FTL:2448?

Homebrew Design & Conversions / Re: Open Source Engine for Tri Tac Games

If not joking, it would make me very happy.

I got 'primary developer' for an OpenQuest conversion defaulted to me.  And d100 is alien to me.  I played D&D / AD&D / d20 / True20 and Cortex and by the time I joined Tri Tac Richard had moved to systemless.
