Guardians of The Ancients

Posted: July 7, 2016 in Uncategorized

This friday I’m running a D100 BRP sci-fi game set in the early years of the Zero expansion, for those who have played “Charlie” you get the basic picture; near future sci-fi (Alien, Aliens, Silent Running etc). There’s no direct TOPTA reference, but it’s a start in the right direction.

At the moment this is a very loose idea based on a Traveller scenario I bastardized many years back. If it hits the mark, I shall write it up and put as a free pdf download on the new Burning Car Press site when it’s up and running.

TOPTA is not dead. The rules re-write is underway and I’m re-developing the web page. SO watch this space 🙂

Hi again,
Well, so far the conversion to Mini D6 is working out just great. Obviously it’ll require some play testing but so far Mini D6 suits TOPTA down to the ground.
Might; which is physical attacks and hit points of a sort, has been replaced with Psight. All the familiar Psight skills are under here. Obviously when the Agents inhabit their respective cadavers, the cadavers will have Might, purely for working out hit points. Agility becomes Control, and all the physical skills will come under this category as they represent the Agents control of the cadaver.

If you want to understand what I’m talking about better (or at all), I highly recommend you download the game for free and take a look at the Bare Bones addition.

And remember; Worthing, it’s not just a place. It’s a state of mind ☺

Kill them all !!


Mini Six Bare Bones

Posted: January 27, 2015 in Game Play, Other Games

I don’t know how many of you have seen or read Mini Six Bare Bones rules, available here but they are rather good. Simple, but good. I’m seriously thinking about adapting TOPTA to use these rules. GOYA (Get Off Your Arse) would still stand regarding Red and Amber Games, bit for issues that require dice, Green Games and any sitting sections, these might be nice to use. They’re OPENGL, so there’s no major issues. I have two rather spunky sci-fi scenarios set in the TOPTA history which I may play test them out with first. I’ll keep you updated. Check out the rules though, they’re quite fun
