Business Card RPG

What do you plan to do?

Easy... Just GOTAME (GOal, TArget and MEthod).

Define what you want to do and how you want to do it!

- What do you plan to do?
- I'll charm him!
- Right, but how do you accomplish that?
- I'll manipulate his feelings... Is it [shape]+[mind]?
- Exactly! Do you wish to act [secretly]?
- Hmm, I'm fine with that. As a matter of fact, I want to be seen... I'll do it [safely] instead.
- Got ya. Let's see: your values are {2} on "shape", {2} on "mind" and {1} on "safely". That gives you V RANK (2+2+1=5). Roll your dice.
*rolls 1d8*
- It's a 6! That's a partial success. What happens?
- Let's see... We did the "dice part". Tell me in fiction how you "charm him" and I'll tell you the consequences of that action.

D6 version and  Coin version also included!

Pretty sure you didn't intend to mention a d8 in the example of play.

I've just changed it. Thank you for the feedback.

Very interesting, just the other day I was thinking of something like that (business card size), but using your FLING dice result matrix.

EDIT: typos


That's a nice idea. I would love to see it coming to life - if you fling that card, feel free to share it.

Sure. Here is the mockup for 1 face. The front would be the character bio + tracks.

The back would be the inventory + base resolution mechanic for FLING/SunHaven. Items could have a matching stat to fill in.

Then there would be the GM card with:

  • pick 4 stats concerning theme and card suit
  • Select how many points and items character start for gritty, hero or epic game.
  • the FLING table for sucesses / half sucess / failure
  • one resultion track for NPCs / obstacle

uuuuh that looks awesome =)
you have my blessing
