I didn't mean the emphasis to imply anything about the website's functions.  I just wanted anyone reading my post to understand that, should they choose to link there, it is not generally required to log in at the Forum in order to read what is posted there.  (Just if they want to post anything there themselves.)  Sorry for the miscommunication.

Rules Modifications PDF Print E-mail

Mike Thorsen asked "Have you ever made or suggested modifications to an existing game? If so, what game, and how did the mods affect play?"


FGU publilshed my LAND OF THE RISING SUN,a standalone Japanese version of CHIVALRY & SORCERY.  At the time, I didn't realize that C&S's mass combat system was based on WRG Ancients (because I never did wargaming).  So I dug into the rules and was shocked to find that heavy losses might drive an army to Rout, during which time its speed was faster than it could achieve in a state of fully disciplined advance, faster than its horses could gallop.  I decided this didn't make any sense and rewrote the rules.  I never got any comments on this, so I suspect that other roleplayers didn't use the rules, and that wargamers didn't look over my modifications.  (Let's see, because Japanese armies weren't very disciplined, I also added a couple of Disorganized formations to the standard ones which seemed far too organized.)  


When we were playtesting my LANDS OF ADVENTURE (also published by FGU), I decided that the best way to make sure the rules worked was not to be the GM, so I passed out the current version of the rules to the player group and Barry GMed.  Occasionally during the game, Barry would say that the rules didn't cover something, or a player would protest, and I'd scribble a hasty correction, then hand out changes at the start of the next game.  


I tried changing a few rules when writing GURPS JAPAN (for Steve Jackson Games) and VIKINGS (for Iron Crown Enterprises), but some of these didn't appear in the printed version of the games.  I have a list of Errata on GURPS JAPAN that covers most of the major changes between what I wrote and Steve printed.

General Discussion: Game Modifications PDF Print E-mail

Have you ever made or suggested modifications to an existing game? If so, what game, and how did the mods affect play?


Back in the dawn of time, before I moved to Earthquake-land, I lived in a Chicago suburb called Schaumburg, and my weekends were spent with a gaming group called The Wargamers' Guild. We played Battletech, Starfleet Battles, and various & sundry RPG's and boardgames, and we occasionally tinkered with the rules, just for fun.....

Tracking down Patrons in the LASFS Rules PDF Print E-mail


Actually, the LASFS By-laws and the LASFS Standing Rules both define Patron Friend and Patron Saint.   I have now tweaked the Patron Saints page to indicate where both are found, though using the site search bar might also be helpful. 


LASFS Standing Rules

12. Patron Friend donation amount is $300.00. *
13. Patron Saint donation amount is $1,000.00. *
