Chromatic Chameleon

We are small guild of game lovers whose goal it is to create settings to explore different mechanics. To introduce ourselves to you, we are starting with the world of Asteria Rising. This fantasy setting will support nearly a dozen great game systems. Future explorations will include horror, science fiction, cyberpunk, and possibly some westerns or urban fantasy works as well.

Otherside of the Table

Throughout this blog I have stressed the role of Players becoming more proactive when it comes to developing the setting of their world. One of the key ways to do this is to understand how they interact with the world. In “The Power to Name,” we talked about the power to control your own background relationships. This time we'll talk about the rest of the setting. NPCs are often played in a conflicting manner: either directly as enemies or as “Hostile Witnesses,” as many GMs tend not to want to give the milk away for free. When they are allies, as we talked about in “The Power to Name,” some GMs tend to make them targets. That's because the targeting of love ones often makes for great motivation. In the movie “Taken,” for a famous example, the sentence “Whoever you are, I will find you and I will kill you” was designed to show just how motivated Liam Neeson’s character was to save his daughter.
