I've been worldbuilding recently and gotten into making a setting for tabletop gaming. I was curious who else is into the RPGs out there, steampunk or otherwise.

I have played a game of nobility and church where those in power push forward peasants in sacrificial roles, but some end up proving themselves as true heroes and join the upper echelons.  All in the game have different skills and abilities but must work together to overcome the challenges placed before them. Some of you may have encountered this game and called it .... chess.

okay my internet wanderings today lead me to Drakar och Demoner: Ereb Altor , and The Dark Eye.

I'm debating investing in them just to try a couple of the top RPGs from other countries.

found a french rpg that was translated to english Rêve: the Dream Ouroboros, and It sound quite interesting. I spent a lot of time trying to find a digital copy that I could get, and nearly gave up, but Reddit came through for me, and pointed me toward a place I could buy a copy.

I've added some of these to my collection. The most recent purchase is Draker och Demoner, which of course is not in english, but I'm using online translators to help me convert it gradually, which has given me giggle fits multiple times today. (the section full of monsters and such translated at one time as Bearings, and player characters is literally roll person which I actually will keep cuz I like it's flavor, but the biggest giggle fit wis by far the section heading Attacks and Mating... just exactly what kinda game am I getting myself into here.  Cheesy )

I'm also learning a lot about formating as I copy and paste text translations into a new PDF document and am doing my best to reproduce as much of the original layout and design as possible. I'm even incorporating the artworks (took a lot of screen cap and crop to isolate the images and prep them to be installed as images in the PDF.) I'm also preserving the cover pages, in the front I've the translated one and the back will be the originals. I'm thinking I may print this out and bind it (not sure if I'll use a perfect bound or a stitch bound yet).

That where I am right now. I've done the table of contents, the preface, and the intro chapter, Just did a tedious bit of graphics manipulation to preserve the font while translating the cover page as best I could.

FIGURER I BOXEN - Figures in Box
(STORLEKSILLUSTRATION) - Huh image sizing Huh
SPRÅKLIG BEARBETNING - Huh language processor Huh - editor maybe Huh
GRAFISK FORM OCH ORIGINAL - Graphic design and originals???

I'm also seriously debating if I should try to convert the title to Dragons and Demons, or leave it as Drakar och Demoner.

Reminds me of the software for Die Siedler von Catan.

I am curious in the theoretical sense. Have done setting construction and am currently poking true20 to see if I could take the fifteenish year old system and do some revising of how it handles things I find clunky when it does what I view as a whole lot well in streamlining d20 modern.

Fine sure 'but mutants and masterminds' or 'why not.. x'?

I have the PDFS to this on hand so, 'why not?'
