The closest I ever came to playing Palladium was the long running Robotech campaign I was in, based on the original ruleset. I had the Robotech books, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Rifts, but never looked for the fantasy game since I was more interested in the settings than the system itself. We took a wild stab at how the game should be played and went for it. If there was something that we didn't understand, we usually just skipped it. I played Palladium Fantasy back in the 80's. At the time I thought it was a better system because it had skills. I particularly love reading the section on wizards and there spells, how they spend their lives learning them and would never forget them.

Why I Love Mongoose Traveller, Why I Won’t Get the New Edition
Enough of the insanity! It is time to head back to the roots for this blog. It seems wrong to call the third edition I played the first edition. Bizarre naming practices and everything. This is one of the few games I own where character creation and the basic rules of play are not in the Players Handbook of the game. The character I ran for the longest time in an actual 1e campaign was a human assassin, but humans are boring, and I like the feel of a religious assassin. I want a high Wisdom and Dexterity for the character, so I finish with the 14 in Wisdom, 15 in Strength which is bumped up to 16 , and the 16 in Dexterity.
And yet, hate and love can be said to be two sides of the same coin. Furries have often shamelessly involved themselves in roleplaying games, from the likes of Ironclaw and its weeaboo spin-off Jadeclaw to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles And Other Strangeness. And yet, even more mainstream games have thrown them some encouragement. Cats are, without a doubt, one of the most commonly admired of animals by furries. Yet catfolk somehow get a pass on this.

Hero system? Edition wars were unknown, the game sold extremely well — easily becoming the dominant science fiction RPG in the English-speaking world — all was golden. It also made sense to farm out a lot of the work to Digest Group Publications, a third party outfit who had been turning out exceptionally well-received support material for the game.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles & Other Strangeness
They were doing exactly what you would have needed to do to keep an eye on the wider world of the hobby during that era. Contrary to enormous amounts of erroneous Internet rhetoric on the subject, you absolutely can accomplish a sense of verisimilitude without going with a heavy, complex rules system. Mastering a rules-heavy, high complexity system because you are very keen on delivering a realistic experience is not something which every gamer necessarily wants to do, and nobody wants to put that level of effort into mastering a system aimed at realism if the end results are not actually realistic. In a traditional RPG format, you need just two things to for verisimilitude to be in place: the referee needs to be willing to allow the PCs to engage with any particular part of the world their characters could plausibly interact with, and the players need to engage with that freedom. What went wrong? Picking a broadly familiar setting to base their social assumptions on — medieval England and France circa — was in principle a sound choice, but in practice it degenerates into Simbalist and Backhaus going too far in showing off their research, effectively regurgitating encyclopedia articles on subjects like the ceremony of knighthood into the game text. The manuscript as delivered by Simbalist and Backhaus was so massive that the page 1st edition core book actually has the pages scaled down, so you get four normal-sized pages per page and all the text is absurdly tiny.
The core rulebook was first published by Palladium Books in September — a couple years before the Turtles franchise achieved mass popularity — and featured original comic strips and illustrations by Eastman and Laird. The rules and gameplay are based on Palladium's Megaversal system. Some of these rules, outlining the basics of character creation and providing a short list of animal options, were later incorporated in the second edition of Heroes Unlimited. Turtles and rats were not the only option for mutated animals ; a rather large list was made available of animals that could be mutated in a wide variety of ways intelligence, human looks, functioning hands, bipedalism, etc. Some animals allowed access to different varieties most notably dog breeds , and rules allowed for the creation of new animals. Characters had access to psionic powers and could come from a wide variety of sources e. The mutant animal player characters in the game lived in the modern world, functioning on the fringes of human society.

Сьюзан чувствовала, как кабина набирает скорость, двигаясь в сторону главного здания АНБ. Наконец она остановилась, и дверь открылась. Покашливая, Сьюзан неуверенно шагнула в темный коридор с цементными стенами. Она оказалась в тоннеле, очень узком, с низким потолком. Перед ней, исчезая где-то в темноте, убегали вдаль две желтые линии. Подземная шоссейная дорога… Сьюзан медленно шла по этому туннелю, то и дело хватаясь за стены, чтобы сохранить равновесие. Позади закрылась дверь лифта, и она осталась одна в пугающей темноте.
Уже больше полувека оно занималось тем, что собирало электронные разведданные по всему миру и защищало американскую секретную информацию. О его существовании знали только три процента американцев. - АНБ, - пошутил приятель, - означает Агентство, которого Никогда не Было.
Беккер нервно посматривал на медсестру. Пожалуй, дело кончится тем, что его выставят на улицу. Клушар продолжал бушевать: - И этот полицейский из вашего города тоже хорош. Заставил меня сесть на мотоцикл. Смотрите сюда! - Он попытался поднять левую руку.
Ей хотелось убежать, но сильные руки тянули ее. - Я люблю тебя, - шептал коммандер. - Я любил тебя .
