    Post Saving Throw Review - Golden Sky Stories

    Small town life has it's up and downs. But the Japanese boonies have to put up with these shape-shifting girls running around causing mischief.

    why is it that the giant robot games never get localized?

    I actually think I would like one! Can we play it in gaming group when we get gaming group running again? It sounds very different from a lot of the tabletop games we've played over the years.

    we could, but it would bring back to my big stumbling block of 'I would rather do with Drama System/Do' and then we'd get all weird.

    Would it be possible to take the setting from one and the system from the other? Or are they completely incompatible in that way?

    i've been brainstorming stuff with Do where henge powers form a list 'how you help people' while traits and natures become 'how you get into troub'. the big hurdle is figuring out how to incorporate the parade/pitchforks ending mechanic without the presumption that the players will leave the area at the end of the story.

    Geas-binding that ties them to a specific spot in the scenario?

    that actually is part of the setting of GSS, but Do assumes a episodic, itinerant structure and builds that into the sessions win/loss condition. So re-working that element is the tricky part.

    a Drama System hack, however, is mostly about adding henge powers to the procedural skills list.
