A Little Tavern BMO!Beemo/ZZYYCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 41567232

#Open #Slice of Life #Canon/Crossover TBD #Chill #General #Pen and Paper #Planning

Any one interested in a play by post game of Tiny Taverns?
It's a slice of life RPG about the everyday lives of those who run and interact with a fantastic tavern!

The rules are very simple and light, able to be mostly up to you, whether you succeed or fail!

It could be a canon or it could be outside of canon, even with crossover! Given the nature of a fantastic tavern, crossover is easy enough to do if there is an interest. Let me know what you think!

I'd also like to note that this doesn't have to be a tavern! That's just what the game was built for.

It could just as easily be applied to a hotel (the game I run of it at the moment is a bed and breakfast), a school or an entire town!

The big thing is that you gotta run something and deal with the small problems of your work place that sometimes get blown to fantastic proportions.

I'm also not limiting the the setting to the book's fantasy setting. The abilities and heritage powers of the book can be easily applied to anything. I've even seen a Mass Effect total conversion where you run a shop on the citadel. So, anything is doable if there's enough interest.

Y'know what? I'm interested in playing a small game or two of this. Do I need to buy the rules somewhere?

>>41567238
I have no problem sharing the rules. It's a bit "under the table" to do it, but hey, I bought it twice. So, I wouldn't feel bad sharing

That being said, you can buy the game right here! https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/303391/Tiny-Taverns

For the low low cost of whatever it says on the site!

Would it be enough to just get like, a character sheet PDF?

>>41567241
I have that for ya!

Though, character creation is collaborative since the place the characters work is so integral to how the character forms.

>>41567242
Alright, guess I can't do much with it on my own, then.

BMO!Beemo/ZZYYCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 41567244

>>41567243
Yep. This thread is more of a poll to see who's interested.

Though, once the game starts, others CAN join. They just won't get as much agency on how the tavern shapes out. But, they can still get additions.
They also wouldn't get the agency to decide if it even IS a tavern.

Never heard of this before, but consider me interested! I'll check out more on it after work tomorrow.

Noice!

It's a quaint and lovely game!

I'm not pretending I haven't seen this go horribly wrong in the past.

But this is going to be with the assistance of a tabletop system designed to make this work.

Hahah, I'm not saying anything bad by it. I'm just being old and remembering things from long ago

BMO!Beemo/ZZYYCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 41567342

>>41567306
I knoooow. I've just seen my own fair share of open canon taverns. But, few had rule sets, it was just hangin' out and rping. And it was sooooo prone to people showing up and being like "Ah ha, so I'm a trickster god and anything you do, I'll just nope it because I don't understand Improv"

So, having a rule set designed around just allowing success will help anything be possible for anyone!

In this system, you roll a number of d6 based on if you are good or bad at it. (Advantage 3d6, Neutral 2d6, Disadvantage 1d6)

And, if any of them land on 5 or higher, you do what you wanted to do and get to describe it!

So, it lets you do as absurd things or as simple things as you want!
Kinda reminds me of regular show where an Immortal yeti man is EXACTLY AS USEFUL as a slacker who plays video games purely in the situation itself.

That makes sense, and is a good idea! Back in the donut bar, the early days, people came in and went "I SEE YOU!

ZAP!!!"



I'd be offering to join asap, but I'm busy with work and such.

>>41567351
Exactly. Even if the game is still ridiculous, y'all gotta at least ROLL for it.
And even then, the other person can take three hits before going down for a while. So, even the most insane of trickster gods can't do something that can't be undone with a little TLC unless the player allows said chaos to happen to them.

It's a story we're tellin here! Stories told by many require consent between the active players or it doesn't work!

Totally get being busy! I'm just sorta judging interest.

Interdasting.

I shall be observing.

>>41567392

When were you thinking of starting this up if you reached your hypothetical number of interested players?

>>41567447
I'd certainly like around 5, plus or minus one to start.

As for when, we can start as soon as we get the number of players. Character creation/tavern creation is collaborative and we can easily have an OOC thread where we spend time on each topic. We don't have to sit down and have an over voice/"in person" brain storming session and just dedicate about a day to each idea until we have the tavern made.
