7th Sea! on today's System Mastery! With that heady mix of excellent game design and weird rear end in a top hat game designer. This was a really fun one.

What... just happened? I got about fifteen minutes into this episode and then woke up naked in a tub of ice. I'm posting this from a phone I found in a plastic bag next to me. Does this room even have any doors?

(holy poo poo the Campaign reference)

I made a typo, it should be Artorios, not that there's much in common with Dark Souls other than "was a knight". I don't think there has ever been an official translation of Rifts (or any other Palladium game) into another language.

They Are King Arthur References; there is a (contested) theory that Arthur's name descends from the Roman family name Artorius.

Starfinger question - is magic an actual thing in this game universe? Or are you just referring to some abilities derisively as spells because they might as well be.

I do love the idea of an adventuring party opening a closet door and a dozen angry skeletons pouring out like some kind of necromantic clown car.

From a few pages ago, but: The Dark Tower (a Judges' Guild AD&D module) did this in 1980 - you take a flight of stairs upwards and open a door and your GM says, "Bones spill out as you pull the door open! This Room Contains One Hundred Skeletons"

It'd be kinda cool to see a horror game with combat rules focused on how the fighters in the party can specifically slow down or drive off the monster of the week when it attacks while you solve the mystery.

A combat system based around buying time and 'We'll hold it off, get that door open!' is something I've never personally seen before.

Blades in the Dark has 'clocks' that you fill or empty by making appropriate checks in a given scene. That would totally work for this.

Also Horrient has been extremely fun to read!

One thing we came up with in the Discord was the idea of "indulgence lootboxes".

An actual jewelry box that when opened displays a hologram of a saint's fingerbone or a fragment of the True Cross

The Phantom Tollbooth gets really weird in the last few chapters.

The Terrible Trivium is like the perfect 'morality play' monster to be an RPG villain. O brave warriors, collect ten bear asses!

Yes. It would be considered gauche to hide the actual rules under any less than 3 layers of allegory, after all, which leaves no-one actually knowing for sure what they are. They count entirely on panache to see them through as they make it all up.

I love this whole thing as a mechanism for letting your players bullshit their way through what 'should' be delicate social interactions without having to actually remember a bunch of etiquette a la L5R/Glorantha/Tekumel

Hmm, how can I differentiate these suns? Ah, with color! Let's see... Grey. Silver. Pale. Yep, these are all different, my job here is done.

Supplementary Green Sun joke: I can't believe Cook included the entirety of Homestuck in his game

Seriously though W. Languray thank you for your sacrifices in bringing this pile of utter wank to us.

I showed this image to my father, who is a writer and sometime editor, and he said "what the hell is that hideous gutter bullshit doing down the middle of the page? there's no excuse"
