I enjoyed it. I like the game cycles and how it flows. I also see that entropy always wins in the end...which is okay because that's the point. The only thing missing is sentient creatures to run into. I have thought about expanding the creature chart myself, to include other alien travelers. Not being able to communicate with them fully would still lend to the lonely nature of the game. Besides most likely they would be enemies. Great Game...look forward to my next session.
Played my first session last Sunday. Enjoyed it. I assumed it was use one resource to get rid of one tick...but I wasn't sure. Thanks for the clarification.
Ok read it, love it. At first I was getting a wanderhome vibe, but it's kinda like the reverse... you are making home and community. I often have that thought in my head when playing WH. My TTRPG group have a joke about mixing WH and Ironsworn (I think someone is doing that?) Because we want a dice mechanic to keep our narative honest and surpriseful. I think your 4 point system may be the perfect solution and as such makes CRCS a great game for people in that mindset. Also amazing art.
Enjoyed the playthrough video so much, bought the game. Hope to read through it this weekend some time.
Been meaning to try the Breathless system. This concept interests me of late so I thought why not! Space seems to be big this year. Once I get done trying "Welcome aboard Captain!", I'll be able to dive into this one.
Love the set up of this. "The dating game show" was always a guilty pleasure of mine... as well as "blind date". To me this is a combination of them. Bringing back the "losers" to help control the path of the date is a clever mechanic, and keeps everyone involved.
I like the design of this and think it's great tool for creating super hero casts... maybe even for an indie comic/manga. I can't wait to try it with my friends when we get a chance.
This is really nice. Appreciate both the layout and the concept. Gonna recommend it to all my friends or anyone who will listen. Will be very helpful in solo rpgs.
I really like the base of this. Wheels turning in my head of stuff to add. Definitely thinking of designing a deck of cards for it, with suits replaced with icon for the category(well except heart). Hope to give it a solo shot later this week. Really happy with this first step into the Possible Worlds.
Yes very nice. There is another in this jam with these kinda vibes...your backgrounds would really play well there. Blanket Warder teamed with a Monster under the bed, who has finally given up on scaring folks, would be cool sphere jumping material.
When my friends and I ran across Troika in the itch social justice bundle, we thought it was a joke. But we so loved the backgrounds and ideas. Then when you announced this fest, well heck we realized it was becoming a bit of a deal. Thanks for making us unhip masses aware!
This is one of my favorites of the jam. Love the art, concepts, and layout. I would love to play these guys in other spheres.
Some good ideas. Would love to see it expanded more. The Fox Tarot reader is worth the visit, though I have a anthropomorphic version in my mind. Would love to see some art of these.
Oh this is very well done. I like you have embraced a more sci-fi approach. It seems a lot of Troika content leans more toward fantasy.
