Exploration in UW

As I mentioned in the No GM's Sky thread, it had made me think about exploration stories in UW and chewing over some possible Moves for it. An exploration story is focused on going from system to system, seeing what's there, and maybe looking for something specific (which could be "home"). Breaking ...

Re: No GM's Sky - Uncharted Worlds

This is fantastic . Definitely gave me food for thought, design-wise. Ditto. I spent an evening chewing over exploration-style games and thinking up moves. I'd do a detailed post now the spammers are gone, but I'm about to go larping for the weekend (its a public holiday in NZ, so weekend starts ea...

Spammers

Any chance of killing them, or restricting account creation to prevent them?

(This is why I prefer Discourse to phpBB - its far more robust against spamming scumbags, and usually automatically detects them)

Re: No GM's Sky - Uncharted Worlds

Acquired. It looks like a nice little framework, and obviously would work with Traveller as well :) I've been wondering how to use UW for exploration - the TV show _The Terror_ made be wonder if you could do a campaign setup based on the search for the Franklin expedition. But fundamentally I was st...

Re: A UW zine?

I think in this case its mostly a nostalgia kick for a certain format of publication common in the 80s and early 90s. Nowdays, people would just release a PDF. A modern example would be Codex , for the Gauntlet community, or the various Ars Magica publications that have come and gone over the years....

A UW zine?

If you follow Kickstarter, you'll have noticed that they're doing a thing called ZineQuest - a month-long promotion of rpg zines and zine-style publications. The rules are simple: gaming content, A5 or smaller, stapled or saddle-stitched format, and one-colour printing. So I'm wondering: does anyone...
