Trying out this CATS thing:
Concept: (Shamelessly copied from the Warlock website):
Warlock is a rules-light roleplaying game that aims to emulate the feeling of old-school British tabletop games of wondrous and fantastical adventure. Warlock looks to reproduce the play style of its illustrious predecessors but in a light, quick and simple manner, with a consistent rules set that is easily hackable and adaptable as desired.
To have fun together while giving both the players and GM a solid taste of this system. We will play multiple sessions (aiming for 3, but could be anywhere from 2-4) in order to experience all aspects of the system, including character advancement. (Full disclosure: this will be my first time running the system, so expect some rough edges.)
Low fantasy, inspired by Warhammer Fantasy and the Fighting Fantasy books. A Human-centric fantasy world that resembles the late medieval to early renaissance age. Elves, Dwarves, and Halflings exist but are in the minority. Traitors and rival factions lurk in the Humanoid settlements, while goblins, trolls, the bizarre unmen, and other creatures roam the wilderness. Combat and magic are dangerous. While the setting is somewhat grim, I tend to keep the tone fairly lighthearted in my games.
Your characters are just trying to scrape by and have turned to adventuring in the hopes of a better life. Expect a mix of roleplay, exploration, and combat.
As listed in the Gaming and BS Roundtable Spreadsheet, I’m looking for 3-6 players.
You’ll create characters before the game, but I promise the semi-random character creation mechanism is quick and easy. I’m happy to help.
We’ll use the G&BS Discord server for voice/video. Still undecided on the VTT, but expect theater of the mind combat and low tech. Possibly Foundry, with PDF based character sheets, or possibly just Owlbear Rodeo or no VTT at all.
Aiming to kick things off in late October. I’ll send out a Doodle poll to align on dates/times.
If you’re interested, please reply to this forum post and/or add your name to the spreadsheet.
