MotA the RPG


My, that location looks familiar. So do those people! Whatever is going on? And a no prize for anyone who can explain the dialogue bubbles in this scene!

KFox asked if Chrys can use the Royal Road. In fact, she can't. Or, rather, she can't activate it but other people can draw her along through the Road. Chrys isn't a Key and if unable to Dreamwalk has no way to travel through the arcana without help.

Now, for the big announcement!

This week I made an agreement with Fat Goblin Games to create an RPG based on Mysteries of the Arcana using the Vs. M Engine! I'm currently in the "writing down everything that will be in it" stage. The RPG won't be hundreds of pages long - I'm aiming at simple and affordable - but it will be comprehensive enough to play in the MotA multiverse!

I will be providing updates on the RPG via my Patreon for the comic. People who are donating to the Patreon on the $5 (or above) level will be receiving a PDF copy for free! Please consider donating.

See you next Monday!

Thanks for the clarification on Chrys and the Royal Road.

Also, congratulations! I've had a love of tarot for a long time now, and to have an RPG set in the MotA universe sounds thrilling, so I'll be looking out for that setting!

From what I can understand, the vs. M engine uses playing cards instead of dice to generate randomness. Draw a number of cards from the deck based on a character attribute with the highest ranked card being your result.

I can definitely see a neat thematic tie in if used with a special deck of tarot cards. Smile

I'm looking forward to seeing this game because I'm especially excited about the world-building lore.

Hmm this game interests me. Speak of it more. Wink

Hmm looks like Melody and Quest are having another one of their arguments And Kludge is just about at the "Oh for the love of GOD! Either slap him or screw him!" point

You already know my stance on this, J.
