Skull & Bones

Recommended Posts

Grump retrieved his copies of Skull & Bones from storage, and it looks. Really. Awesome! :ik_oops:

 

Anyone have any hours in playing it? Because I am thinking that I don't want to wait for the Bones Pirate Ship.

 

I wish I had looked at it BEFORE he put it in storage. ::):

I already gave Megan my opinion of the game - I freakin' love it!

 

And have for years.

My third favorite D20/OGL game - behind only Spycraft 2.0 and OGL Steampunk. (But ahead of both D&D and Pathfinder.)

Nice and gritty, with a definite dark side, and a flavorsome system for Voodoo. Both Hougan and Bokor are in the game - with the Bokor typically NPCs.

 

*EDIT* If you can find it in print, for a reasonable price, I would recommend it - but the easy to find PDF is about $15 on DrivethruRPG. A quick Google found it selling in print for $20 US.

 

The ship to ship combat remains my default system for sea battles - and was published separately as Corsair.

It is also compatible with Open Mass Combat - sadly, no longer available as a free download from Mongoose Publishing, but is preserved in the Internet Archive . (Warning - this version is from the old D20 Conan game - boobies on every other page.) A more complete version (with no boobies) is in the Ultimate Game Designer's Companion by Mongoose, and found on DrivethruRPG.

Is that the Green Ronin pirate game Spoony talked about, where his first character died trying a cool swashbuckling move and taking a bullet to the head for an insta-kill?

Green Ronin, sure enough. ::):

 

I like it!

 

I like it a lot!

 

Or maybe I just want to play a voodoo priestess. :devil:

 

Only humans, but that's okay, I'll just play a SHORT human. ::P:
