Introducing the Anti-Hero RPG Role Playing Game rules – title page!

Posted by Harbinger451 on December 11, 2011

The Anti-Hero RPG CategoryHarbinger451’s universal RPG is adaptable to any Period, Setting or Genre and lets you play effective Evil or Indifferent characters as well as Good ones.

This roleplaying game is designed specifically to give those wishing to play Evil or Indifferent characters a rewarding and rounded gaming experience as would be available to those playing Good characters. It is intended that the game world be populated equally with characters of all alignments making the game play more challenging for all concerned – and the consequences of actions and the motivations behind them more difficult to predict and counter.

The biggest difference between this system and that of most others is the fact that once your character’s Stats and Skills are set there will be little room for the improvement of their levels. Repeated use of skills will not allow the almost unlimited incremental increases seen in most RPGs… you will be able to hone those skills to a certain maximum level (plus 10 from the starting level) but beyond that you can not go – there are no über characters with every Stat & Skill at 100 here.

Your initial choices when creating a character and how you play the game are crucial to that character’s survival and progress. Also, if you neglect certain Skills and Stats their levels will start to diminish to a minimum (minus 10 from the starting level) – making for a much more level (and interesting) playing field. Character advancement only manifests as Rank and Reputation… or the lack of it.

Read the rest of this introduction on the title page HERE! Lots more on this coming SOON!

Introducing Harbinger451’s ‘The Horror of it All’ title page!

Posted by Harbinger451 on December 7, 2011

The Horror of it All CategoryHarbinger451’s latest site, The Horror of it All, is a bestiary of the bugbears and bogeymen that haunt our collective nightmares. It is a trawl through the dark Alternative Reality that is Horror.

This often light-hearted, though adult oriented, homage to the genre of horror and its many sub-genres and crossovers provides a glimpse in to the forbidding side of the collective unconscious that has found expression through the medium of folklore, fiction, film, games and the internet.

The title page is now online so please check it out – the sub-genres and folklore pages will be following soon.

Enter HERE all those who delight in horror, death, the macabre, the occult, black humor, weird tales, dark fantasy – and all such nefarious pleasures.
