Re: The Future of the DFRPG

Nobody doubts that some people (including me) will spend more money on DFRPG. The question SJG faces is "Will enough people do that?"

Re: Rolls for players looking to fund a new major religion

While starting a new strand of Wicca isn't that hard, getting its members to devote themselves exclusively to one form is much harder. They tend to be quite alert to cult-like behaviour. And saying...

Re: New Reality Seeds

I really doubt history would stay on-track as far as WWI. A Franco-Prussian war will probably break out earlier than 1870, and things after that will be different in Europe.

Re: Coding a character builder

This issue appears to be due to App Stores, and this Kromm post (http://forums.sjgames.com/showpost.php?p=1730839&postcount=388) explains a bit.

Re: Classic titles helpful for Pseudo-2018 Espionage/Conspiracy?

Special Ops is mostly about military special operations. If your PCs are going to be ex-military, it could be quite useful, but the templates will need careful updating.

Re: learning new sorcery spells

The time you have calculated, based on study at 200 hours/point, or twice that for self-teaching, is enough study time to grant you the character points for the spell, under the learning rules.

Re: Classic titles helpful for Pseudo-2018 Espionage/Conspiracy?

You want Illuminati and Espionage. The advice in both is very much applicable, as is GURPS 4e's edition of Horror.

Re: Solarpunk World Building

Re: Super pulp Guns and tech

There is some such gear in Tales of the Solar Patrol and Mars Attacks!, but the easiest way to generate your own is to start with devices from Ultra-Tech, and adjust the ostensible TL to your taste.
