I just bought GURPS Aztecs – I like the New World flavour – so I wondered how to convert GURPS characters to Fudge RPG. These are just rough thoughts. If I ever convert some GURPS characters I’ll add some examples, etc.
The Place of Reeds is based on this historical city called Teotihuacan. The site of Teotihuacan is 40 km north-east of present day Mexico City.
There are a couple of major versions of Fudge RPG out there and a few minor versions.
In my opinion Strands of Fate by VoidStar is one of the more extreme versions of Fate RPG 3.0. However there are some interesting scenarios available on-line for Strands of Fate from VoidStar. I’d like to use the scenarios with Free Fate (from Yahoo Group: Fate RPG in the Files section) as this is more likely to reflect the published Fate RPG 3.0 when it comes out. These are my thoughts on how to convert scenarios from Strands of Fate to Free Fate.
Fate RPG is a spin off from Fudge RPG. There are distinct similarities but Fate does add some interesting twists. Actually there are several versions of Fate and this comparison will concentrate on Free Fudge as this seems to embody the majority view on Fate 3.0. I’ll mention other variants if it seems relevant to the comparison.
If you want to investigate Place of Reeds setting further then have a look at some of these:
The Place of Reeds is based on this historical city called Teotihuacan so I’ve included the timeline for the latter.
Here’s some rough plot lines set in Mesoamerica and hence for the Place of Reeds. it started as a list I typed up in 2006 then got expanded a lot by borrowing ideas from The Big List of RPG Plots.
The Place of Reeds is based on this historical city called Teotihuacan. The religion of Teotihuacan preceded that of the Aztecs but bore a strong similarity to their religion and others of central Mexico.
The Place of Reeds is based on this historical city called Teotihuacan. Who the main inhabitants of Teotihuacan were is unknown, but the contenders are Nahua speakers (like the Aztecs), Totonacs or Otomis (Miller & Taube, 1993). Vogel (1995) adds Nahua-Chichimecs and Olmec-Chochopopolocas to the list of possibilities. Vogel says the most accepted theory is that the inhabitants were proto-Nahua.
The Place of Reeds, being based on this historical city of Teotihuacan, has typical flora and fauna for central Mexico.
The Place of Reeds uses the three calendar systems of Mesoamerica: 260 day ritual calendar, 365 day vague calendar and the 52 year bundle.
I played Role Playing Games (RPG) solidly for about 15 years from my early teens.
Fudge RPG is a rules-light role-playing game engine. As an engine it provides a common set of game mechanics that can be used to create any role-playing game the Game Master (GM) desires. Fudge uses a simple word-based system for handling action and combat resolution, which makes the game fast-paced and easy to play.
