Here we go again! By now you know the drill… I disappear from the blog for a couple of months and the come August I’m back for #RPGaDay2018
Thankfully my fellow posters keep you busy in my absence, but for the third (excuse me I checked and it turns out it’s the) fourth year in a row I’m here to participate in this wonderful initiative started by David F. Chapman, #RPGaDay. Where we celebrate all the wonderful things about our hobby by talking, blogging, posting, tweeting or live streaming about it; however you communicate on the Internet, the point is to join the conversation.
A couple of weeks ago I found about a new product in Kickstarter. With the success of Starfinder there are a slew of new third-party products available. Many push the system in new and interesting directions. However, I learned about this project vial the Google+ Stargazer’s World Community. The author shared the campaign, and I was really intrigued by the fact the project was being created in Mexico. I contacted the author, Davide Tramma, to learn more about From Beyond: Distress Call, a sci-fi adventure. He was kind enough to answer my questions, here is the interview.
Sunglar: Davide, before we talk specifically about your Kickstarter project, let’s get to know you. Who is Davide Tramma? Where are you from?
Davide: Well, I’m many things and that depends of the point of view. I’m a husband, I’m a teacher, I’m a cook, I’m a player. Essentially, I’m all the things that I’ve been through during the 40 years I have been here. In few words, I’m what I like to do and at the same time what I don’t.
While I used the rules for alien player characters in page 231 of the SWN revised, I took many liberties, and attempted to balance them in other ways. This approach still requires some playtesting, and that is exactly why I’m sharing this document. For this conversion I am using my Character Creation House Rules and Grappling rules I wrote for the game.
