    Kingdom Come changes

    Post by cenobyte on Wed 1 Apr 2009 - 11:30

    I just got a note from Trent saying he's dissatisfied with some of the choices he's made with Kingdom Come. The background and setting will remain the same, but he's going to do away with all the stats. Maneuvers and the concept of Techniques will still exist, but the Techniques will shift to something much more similar to the Miracles in games like Nobilis. Essentially, they're going to be much more interpretational and there will be fewer, FAR fewer actual 'rules' and 'guidelines' to worry about. Basically, this just means that most of the actual 'rules' and guidelines will disappear, and Techniques will mostly be left up to the player to describe the effect. So, for instance, there won't be any more numbers in the game; you won't compare Prowesses or Warfare or anything; you'll just describe an effect.

    Also, Trent has always kind of had a dislike of the Deistical; he wants to return to the traditional "Good Versus Evil" style he had initially envisioned.

    He asked me to thank you guys (the playtesters) for being patient. I guess this means nose back to the grindstone for me.

    **SIGH**

    So. I'll probably have a *new* set of rules (hopefully much, much smaller) in May. Until then, we'll keep playing with the ones we have.

    You know, I love Trent, I really do. I just can't help but think he's *never* going to be satisfied with this game though. He's always been wishy washy, but seriously, even I'm not sure how much longer I can keep defending him if he keeps this up. I'm not even going to mention (okay, that's a lie, I'm mentioning it) the last time he tried the whole "pure roleplay" method to this game. You'd think he'd have learned his lesson.

    It's hurting my brain, even thinking about the amount of work I've put in to this already.

    Alan wants me to run a Nightwatch/Daywatch setting this summer...which might actually be doable depending on my schedule (i.e. that I have a determined class schedule next week). I'd be using a system I developed shortly after my study of various systems both tabletop and larp which has yet to see the light of day to anyone else.

    I think we could try a KC LARP were everyone plays each other's characters. So no-one is allowed to see their own character sheet but has a copy of everyone else's. Then we don't have to worry about min-maxing and just concentrate on the story. Also it could be set in 2157 after God has revealed himself and transformed all life from carbon-based to hydrogen based so everyone can fly.

    Nothing says that I can't run a game in two cities at the same time. Awesome knows no spacio-temporal boundaries.

    Yeah. Trent gave me a heart attack when he sent me that email yesterday. Mostly because I don't pay much attention to April Fools' Day. I used to, but that's a different story.

    Anyway, yeah. You can all put your defibrillators away now.

    Like he'd ever go diceless. *snort*

    It's not so funny when you are reading everything on April 2nd and didn't notice that the posting wasn't done in a flurry *this* morning. I feel the need to go and break something... something squishy... roughly the size and shape of Trent's nose... or Jill's nose...

    I understand the need to break something squishy. I prefer random bystanders instead of people I know though.

    Well, at least SOMEONE had the same reaction I did.

    That was my goal.

    Heh. I damn near typed "that was my gaol", which is much, much, much too close to the truth.

    It got me for a second or two. Then I was like, "Awesome, that's the first good April Fool's day joke I've seen today." Then I sent Jill an e-mail to that effect, to which she replied "Actually, Trent *did* send me an email to this effect." I knew that that could mean he played the joke on her too, but I wasn't sure. And then she didn't admit the joke at noon. And this was too close to something Trent might really do (from what I've heard of him). And Jill seemed pretty upset. So yeah, I kept doubting it... but you had me pretty good, Jill. I couldn't decide for sure if it was true. I was all ready to post an apology today if you still didn't say anything about it.

    The trick to not being disgruntled about such things is to not care about anything but yourself, and your awesome.
    In lieu of that you can focus on me, and my awesome.

    Dude. You have no awesome compared to the true awesome of Captain Awesome.

    The worse part is that in addition to his awesome he's a nice guy -- which just makes him *more awesome*.

    Are you really sure that you are more real than Captain Awesome? Television would never lie to me. Everything it shows is happening somewhere. Thus he must be just as real as you are even if he isn't someone I personally know.
