Comment Picking Gumshoe/Police-Procedural TRPG
by Hawke Robinson last modified May 17, 2018 08:05 AM
Here we can discuss as we try to work through which Gumshoe/Mystery/Contemporary/Police-Procedural TRPG we should use for research and community programs. Remember our mandatory criteria: Must be currently available with an in-print hard-copy option (POD is acceptable). Should have strong investigative mechanics. Must have behavioral modification options/consequences for maladaptive behaviors (like Shadow points in TOR/AiMe, Force dark side in Star Wars, etc.). Should have strong social/cooperative encouragements (like fellowship focus for TOR for example). Permission to Use license granted in writing from the publisher. Any other criteria you think should be on that list?   Anyone have some good starting links for consideration? So far we have evaluated Trail of Cthulhu based on the Sleuth system, and discussed Call of Cthulhu based on the BRP system. I have also suggested the possibility of the Doctor Who system, but the players/characters do not necessarily know they are in a Doctor Who setting. This is something I hope to test out soon (After June 15th of course). :-)   Thoughts, suggestions? As we narrow down the list, I will setup a Poll for a vote to see if any clear consesus develops or not. But first, let's create a list from the above, and any other suggestions you have. Then whittle down that list through discussion.

Comment Picking a Super Hero RPG for research and community programs
by Hawke Robinson last modified May 17, 2018 08:01 AM
Here we can discuss as we try to work through which Superhero RPG we should use for research and community programs. Remember our mandatory criteria: Must be currently available with an in-print hard-copy option (POD is acceptable). Must have options to encourage heroic play. Should encourage "heroic" play. Must have behavioral modification options/consequences for maladaptive behaviors (like Shadow points in TOR/AiMe, Force dark side in Star Wars, etc.). Should have strong social/cooperative encouragements (like fellowship focus for TOR for example). Permission to Use license granted in writing from the publisher. Any other criteria you think should be on that list? Optional criteria (not mandatory but would be helpful): Non-super hero "support" PC options. For example my adaptation of Agents of Shield. You are in the Super Hero universe, interacting with Super Heroes, but you are not a Super Hero yourself (though you have talents of value). Anything else that should be on the optional criteria list? If we find something that has this plus all of the above, that will definitely be a good candidate!   Here are some starting links for consideration. http://www.luisescobarblog.com/six-of-the-best-superhero-tabletop-role-playing-games/ https://www.superherorpgs.com/ https://www.therobotsvoice.com/2013/06/the_10_best_superhero_role_playing_games.php https://www.reddit.com/r/rpg/comments/4bh8pp/whats_a_good_superhero_roleplaying_system_these/ https://litrpgreads.com/blog/8-great-tabletop-superhero-rpg   Thoughts, suggestions?
