The Big Old Vault of Relics and Curiosities is an ongoing collection of alternative rules, rulings, systems, and ideas for ICRPG and OSR Games that serves as a source of inspiration for GMs and players.
In this version of the Vault you will find ideas about:
The Joy of Low Hit Points, where we talk about hit points in games and how reducing them and all the math associated can create an unique cinematographic experience for combat.
Player-Facing Combat, and the idea that players should always be the active part in any conflict, rolling to hit, damage… And avoid attacks made against them, freeing the GM to do what the GM should do, focus on everything not dice-rolling related.
Luck as an OSR Mechanic, an original mechanic that measures Luck in a dice chain (D4, D6, D8…) and gives players a new way to influence the game and negotiate narrative advantages.
Alternative Wealth Systems, simplifying the math for when no one wants to track every copper and allowing GMs to create the monetary system they prefer for the game, from the classic generic gold pieces to barter and trade systems.
As with all products in this series, this title is offered as PWYW and will receive constant support and update, with new ideas and adventure seeds being added regularly – buyers will be notified when a new version becomes available, so if you believe this product to be worth of your support, please return to this page and contribute in the future.
Coming up in this product v1.1:
Take back your right to deam, use OSR Games as Generic Systems for any genre and a series of Adventure Seeds to take full advantage of the previous idea.
