this is super interesting! i'd love to run a campaign with this framework, but i'm having trouble finding an rpg system that it would fit with. do you have any suggestions?
oh, hm. I‘m mean D&D is the obvious one but I‘m a big fan of Dungeon World… I‘ve ran and enjoyed a bunch of planar fantasy games with that system…
I hadn't heard of dungeon world before, i'll have to check it out! I'm also considering doing a small hack of Blades in the Dark (i'd been meaning to make a planar rpg for a while now, it's such an underrated genre of fantasy) for it, or maybe trying out something like Troika. Thanks for the suggestion!
There actually is a planar fantasy version of Blades in the Dark! It's called SIG: City of Blades and it's actually referenced in an easter egg in the text!
You can check it out here:
And you can grab it on itch, here:
oh yes, i've seen Sig before! it's a little too heavy on the faction games aspect of blades for my taste, but i bet it could be made to fit the planedawn framework for people who enjoy that aspect of the fitd system
Understandable. I do like BitD but the whole metagame with the gang and the factions always felt too busy for me. I do enjoy more lightweight things.
Here's Sig running on its own original system pre-BitD
Troika! should always be on a list of planar fantasy rpg systems!
- Infinigrad Freelancer
- Troika! with the City Running Troika supplement
- Forthright (Sanctuary rules would be great for the Home Base)
- Vagabonds of Dyfed with the Dortoka city-building supplement
