Underfoot, Copper Slime Highwayman

Note: This character is designed for a Fate Core game set in Uresia: The Grave of Heaven, one of my absolute favorite fantasy settings. I have written some about running Uresia in Fate before, and I'm planning to bring some more such discussion to One Yard Hex.

Once the scourge of the Temphisian byways, the copper slime known as Underfoot waylaid the wrong Baron or Duke or some such and now has quite the price on his proverbial head. To escape, he disbanded his crew and fled to Shadow River. He is now an adventurer-for-hire hoping to secure a job in a faraway land.

Mad Digger Slime: Orange Slime Burrowing lets you tunnel through earth or stone with ease. You can ignore obstacles to movement as long as you can burrow under or around them. The GM may designate zones underground that you can access but other characters cannot.

Swarming Bandit Slime: You can break apart into a swarm of miniature versions of yourself. When you use Athletics to create an advantage on someone you have swarmed, you get an extra free invoke.

That Old Gang of Mine: If you spend a fate point, you can call on a mob of two Average nameless NPCs, criminals you worked with once upon a time. Each additional fate point you spend either adds two more NPCs or increases the mob’s rating by one step.

Well, my first crate arrived today, and I thought I'd go through it here on the blog.

Discworld RPG Review

The Discworld Roleplaying Game is a standalone fantasy RPG written by Phil Masters with rules based on GURPS Fourth Edition by Steve Jackson Games. It is the second edition of Discworld RPG, following the original GURPS Discworld published in 1998 and reprinted under the Discworld RPG name in 2002.

For those who may not be familiar, Discworld is the setting of an extremely popular series of fantasy novels written by Sir Terry Pratchett. The Disc consists of a flat, circular plane resting on the backs of four elephants who in turn stand on the shell of an enormous turtle which swims through space. It began as a fairly traditional — if satirical — fantasy world, but through over 40 novels, Pratchett advanced the setting into a rich canvas on which to poke fun at the peculiarities of modern life.

The first edition of the Discworld RPG was based on GURPS Third Edition, and it included GURPS Lite, a pared down version of the core system. Still, it relied perhaps too much on knowledge of th…
