Savage(?) Bruman

So on the recommandation of +Frank Turfler I've been trying to learn the Savage Worlds system ... In some places it reminds me of Cortex and in others ... yeah, still working on it.  Since, however, I am one that learns at least in part through application I've attempted to convert the Bruman of the Valsuum White Star adventure over to Savage Worlds.

Savage Bruman
Bruman are small rat-like creatures who live in vast underground tunnel networks and cities, drawing as much as they can from the depths of dying Valsuum. The Bruman are tradesmen and merchants who are always looking for a deal and willing to trade in nearly everything. Bruman are cunning and rarely tell the truth unless it benefits them financially. Because of their cut-throat nature in trade and business the Bruman are often looked at suspiciously by the other races of Valsuum.

Fade into the Background: Bruman have an excellent ability to fade into the background granting them a +2 to all Stealth rolls.
Bad Rep: Due to their reputation as con-men all Bruman receive a -2 Charisma penalty.
Scurry: Bruman start with a d6 Agility instead of a d4.

Short: Since Bruman only average about 3.5 feet tall they have a Size of -1 and need to subtract 1 from their Toughness.

The one thing I need to say so far is that the race creation guidelines in the Explorers' Guide (pg 22) is very limited and worded in a very unintuitive manner.

The Robathen's Coin Parts 1 -3

A long time ago I released a short story on drivethrufiction called "The Rabathen's Coin - An Arame Tale" that was meant to be the start of a series staring a mysterious thief named Arame.  Well, five years later and I have sold maybe six copies.  With that in mind I figured I might as well break it up into two or three parts and post in on the blog.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.



I.
The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!


Genius Loci's Outlook for Feb/March 2016

Gate File 001 - First Approach
This is the next and the big project for the month of February for my Patreon and the one I want to push for public release in March/April.  The Gate File is being developed for 5th Edition SRD and will incorporate Modern rules and make suggestions as to that fact.















The Smoke Giant's Heir
A second 5th Edition SRD release, The Smoke Giant's Heir was originally meant to be published last July but ran into a number of difficulties including lost maps, Scribus and libre files becoming corrupted due to system failures as my tower died a slow and horrible death.  The Text is written out for this one but one map still needs to be redrawn and the layout needs to be put through Serif now that I have it back.


More Fantasy AgeI don't know yet what I want to do exactly but I want to start doing a fan version of my favorite MMO using Green Ronin's Fantasy Age system.  Obviously this will be a "serial numbers filed off" deal for the possibility …
