So I need to add "Kaiju" rules/setting to my radar along with the Wardogs: RPG, eh? (oh...did I say that out loud? :twisted: )

What the heck happened to my post....maybe I timed out.

I'd make the RPG (if you're having one) and a 'Kaiju' game seperate. It doesn't HAVE to be in the Wardogs ruleset - I initially started bugging the ARES crowd - no bites so far... :(

Given how easy it is already to create Kaiju with the existing rules, all I had in mind was a few pages at most of simple customization stuff. No need for a whole big thing.

The RPG is something down the road a ways. Again more of a sourcebook than a new game for a system that I use for FRPG I think would fit very well. Got to get the stuff I'm already committed to (for) done first...which is about 3-5 other projects including the two I'm currently spending time on. :)

Would you mind enumerating those for me? Offlist is fine, and I might be able to help....maybe. Crap keeps raising it's ugly, misshapen, mutant cranium....took in the truck the FORTH time (damn computer controlled starter interlocks - I have a good mind to rig a bypass...ugly, but I can START the damn thing)

As painful as it is to admit, I do forget mechanics (so I'd have to go review my PDF), but from what little I recall, it DOES seem like WARDOGS might be a better fit than ARES. I'll ponder that while assembling my resources for TWERPS (a side project I've been meaning to do)...

TWERPS? As in Reindeer Games TWERPS? The Worlds Easiest Roleplaying System?

wow....I was introduced to that game about ten years ago, and you're the only other person Ive ever heard reference it since. I thought it had fallen off everybodys radar, if it ever was on peoples radar to begin with.

Heh, so we're both masters of the obscure....
:D

I was gaming when it came out, and remember seeing it in the local (after a fashion) gaming store. I also remember thinking it was more a joke than a real game, but I've come to realize that the point was that games had gotten TOO complicated. The game was a reaction to the endless, unnecessary details in RPGs, as well as being a joke of sorts. It was not taken seriously by anyone i was associated with back then - the trend back then was to pile on endless levels of complication, in an attempt to be more "realistic". I figured this out when I had been playing Rolemaster for a year and half.....
:(

There's a Yahoo Group for it, IIRC, it's called "How To Do Everything".
