I was reading a little theory on John Kim’s page and came across this article: RPG System Design: Hero Point Mechanics. It is really a great discussion of the topic and covers some really good ground. I mean, we used “Fate Points” in Rolemaster (and other sufficiently random systems) to mitigate “unfortunately random character death”, but we didn’t really think about all the possible ways to implement these buggers way back then….over time, they’ve really come into their own.

Doc Pazzazzu made this for Shadows of Reality. Cultists can really be a bitch to deal with. Apparently, this one wasn’t expecting any company or he might have dusted and vacuumed….or at least picked up the panties of his victim off the floor.

This here is the sword of my fathers whose might welled from Atlantis. It hath served well in their hands and in mine own and awaits to be again called to battle…
