Vietnam is particularly interested in additional L-39NG aircraft, of which it has ordered 12 in 2021 and deliveries of the first units are due to start this year. The delivery of L-410NG transport aircraft was also discussed. Both products are under @Omnipol1934 group.

OK, so people saw the dice pools in Scope, the main stat + skills in Scope SRD, and know there's a vampire game template. And so people have some questions about similarities and differences to the obvious comparison. Let's explore in a thread! 🧵
#TTRPG #IndieGameDev #Vampire
Starting off at the top, there is a functional character concept as you would expect in a Cypher or Fate. This is part of the basic Scope SRD.

Also player-facing with a PC-relative scale. No "objective" stats. NPCs instead have modifiers for PC rolls.

Two big differences! CHARACTER CONCEPT Concept i...
Some other concepts & design perspective covered in the Scope SRD, along with the core mechanic and basic character structure. Give it a read if you're into #TTRPG #GameDesign and want a "modernized retro" framework inspired by 80s/90s RPGs. [🧵 continues]…

A hunger for blood

A bit different to the other things I've posted.

#nsfwtwt #vampire

I never realised what true hunger is in life. It takes someone of true will to resist the alluring scent of food after days of starving. Now, imagine if that hunger was never sated.
A deep need in the pit of your stomach, given only a brief respite as you take the mortal essence of another. Knowing you would bring death and mayhem to the world if you fall entirely to the ever present hunger.
That is the existence of a vampire. My life, or un-life I suppose.

When I wake from a year long dreamless slumber, my lungs do not fill with breath. My heart does not pump blood through my body. My skin remains pale and lifeless, cold to the touch.

I guess now a thread about worldbuilding and how it's part of the production of RPGs? Not "how to build a world," but "how RPGs generate worldbuilding in ways that other media often don't and why this matters."

(Relevant to Certain Other Things)

In a broad-scope RPG like #DnD or Green Ronin's #Threefold or #Shadowrun or the #WoD you have a big world with a lot going on, specifically so that game groups can grab hooks that resonate with them and then build their own game sessions in ways that interest them.

Some indie RPGs are very narrow in scope—you're climbing a mountain to kill a witch, or writing a journal of a thousand-year-old vampire, and that's all the game does. Big world games instead say "You figure out what your group likes in this world, here are a million hooks."

When I run #Vampire I like to inject a little chaos now and then. Random events that crop up that cause problems for characters. It's not just the conspiratorial, secret world that messes with you; some nights you can't catch a break in the mundane world, either.

Often I'll pick a character at random and then throw some kind of mortal complication at them: You get summoned for jury duty. A group of urbex teens stumble into your haven and post a TikTok inside of it. Your credit card number is stolen and someone runs up charges.

2/ Screenshot from "Once ...
These tiny bits of drama remind players that vampires are not of the mortal world, but must still work within it. Often these complications mean having to deal with mortals in ways beyond just killing them. Exsanguinating the bank teller won't get your credit card unfrozen!

On the heels of this semi-comedic exchange with @jachilli, a thought for #Vampire Storytellers out there:

Fiction frequently presents vampires as highly competent and often highly intelligent and organized. Even the less-intelligent ones are dangerous due to their strength.

You can get some interesting mileage out of tweaking that expectation. Introduce vampires who aren't hyper-competent, whose successes are the result of structural advantages or assistance from other parties.

The incompetent Prince who's convinced of their own superiority, propped up by a small group of elders simply because they're easy to manipulate. The Primogen who received a political appointment, but has terrible plans. The bumbling, lazy sheriff.

1A día de hoy ¿cuál dirían que es el caza ligero por excelencia? ¿El F-16? ¿El Gripen? ¿Y si hablamos de un aparato que era la mitad de la mitad?

Para mí, este es el caza ligero por excelencia, una pequeña historia del Folland #Gnat (y su hermanastro indio HAL #Ajeet)

Been down the rabbit-hole of #Croatian #folklore - here's a #thread of what I found:


This one is especially close as its my family island.
'From #Folklore to Fiction: Early Literary Manifestations of the #Vampire Motif'

Fun fact: the term 'vampyr' first appeared in an 11th century Slavic manuscript vilifying #Bogomils, a #Gnostic dualist heresy that was endemic to the #Balkans
'#Witches' Zoopsychonavigations and the Astral Broom in the Worlds of #Croatian Legends as (Possible) Aspects of #Shamanistic Techniques of Ecstasy (and Trance)'…

Bapna also Bafana or Bapna or Bafna (Hindi: बाफना / बाफणा )is Indian Jain or Brahmin community. The name was used 4 for Brahmin in #Andhra. Derived from Bahufana & Bafanha. Phaṇa ( Sk. phaṇa) the hood of a snake. How did #Jains end up with #Sudra??This is major spiritual #fraud
#Brahmins are apparently meant to be one group with Jains-this is covenant system. They were imposed on Sudra in British era when Tirupati temple was set up. #Nemi (Jain/Jinn) statue removed and the Tirupati Jinn installed. This is not good news 4 Brahmins as #Nemi is #wrathful

Und weil es die liebe @chra war die mich wegen @KhazAndCrit drauf gebracht hatte, gibt's den #Duetgame Thread jetzt auch noch in deutsch für die #pnpde #ttrpg Twitter Blase 😘

Duospiele - 1on1 oder Duetgames - was ist das?

#Duetgame = 1 #ttrpg, 1 #GM / #DM + 1 Spieler

Du kannst ein Duetgame mit den Regeln von so ziemlich jedem #ttrpg spielen

#ttrpg #dnd #dnd5e #pnpde
Ich habe die meiste Erfahrung damit #DSA und #DnD / #dnd5e Duetgames zu leiten, aber ich habe auch schon #Duetgames in #Shadowrun und #Vampire the Masquerade gespielt und es hat super funktioniert und hat so viel Spaß gemacht!
