Ragadorn Tavern Brawl (Interest Thread)
« on: September 12, 2012, 03:34:06 PM »

Ragadorn Ale-House Brawl or Ragadorn Tavern is an old board game from a 1986 choose-your-own-adventure setting guide called The Magnamund Companion (available here).

Anyone interested in playing it over the forum?

Description
Ten characters battle it out in a tavern brawl using RPG-like rules. Each character has their own objective. One character at random is secretly a powerful undead shapechanger with goals of his own.

The tavern includes treasure hidden under the tables, throwable objects that deal damage, tables and a bar you can stand on, doors and windows you can bundle out of, and a gambling table.

The rules are kind of flaky, but we successfully ran it before over Gametable (generating a bundle of house rules in the process). I want to see if we can run it on a forum like with D&D. Between two and ten people can play, each controlling multiple characters if necessary.

Since there's not as much interest as I expected I'm in.

One comment / question / suggestion:

Why not give the ranger a chance to win his money back at gambling? I can see the angle of his honor making not letting him risk on chance what should be his anyway, but you could play on that. One game round would cover the amount; a victory meant meeting his condition and a loss could be an instant failure, or failure if you don't attack the merchant on the next turn. Something of that nature.

The ranger doesn't just want the money, he wants the merchant to pay up on principle. This makes his goal more difficult than the Magician, for example, but he has higher stats so it balances out.

Alright, closing entries. Five players gives us a tidy two characters each. Starting thread shortly.
