View Full Version : TMNT & Other Strangeness

05-16-2012, 02:32 AM
Big TMNT fan here and I'm arranging a campaign of TMNT & Other Strangeness online. It's not Play By Post, I'll be using a chat. If anyone's interested in participating, shoot me a PM. :tgrin:

Some details:

1. I'll be running the Palladium Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles & Other Strangeness game from the 1980s!
2. I'll be running fun modules straight out of the supplements that came with this fun filled game! The game takes place in modern time but has plenty of sci-fi twists and time travel is always a possibility!
3. Looking for at least 4 players, maximum 8, please post availability
4. Play medium is obviously online, probably via a chat I'm setting up. We may be using little pixel art 8/16-bit style sprites for avatars!
5. Character starting status will be level 1.
6. All starting stats and funds will be randomly generated by dice rolls as per the rulebook. Some restrictions may apply.
7. No restrictions on classes as there is no real defined class in this game, however you are able to choose occupations that fit your character.
8. You'll be playing mutant animal characters like our famous green friends. There are no restrictions except that I prefer that everyone plays their real life gender, I will also be following the book's suggestion that everyone rolls a random animal.
9. Attributes and ability scores will be rolled randomly according to the rulebook.
10. The game does have alignments, I would have to say that everyone has to play good aligned characters. No evil characters, just makes it too difficult and past experience has shown that this just causes arguments.
11. ...
12. If we end up using Maptools, we'll use the dice functions in that game, otherwise I can make a simple browser based one.
13. I won't be using any homebrewed rules, as far as I know.
14. Character backgrounds would be great, but I would suggest you finish rolling your characters first as this would randomly generate your current disposition/animal type/predicament. Everything else is up to you.
15. This game will be a good balance of role-playing and hack and slash so be prepared for both.
16. All players will be using the TMNT & Other Strangeness Ruleset and Supplements. In your best interest, you should not read the story elements/modules so not to spoil any surprises. If you don't have the books, no problem. You can still play and I'll give you a primer on rules.

That's about it, guys. Let me know. :tsmile:

I've done TMNT & Other Strangeness and I like the game, but I like After the Bomb more and I don't know how well I'd in a chat rpg like that.

I imagine you'd have a grand ol' time. It's no different from playing it any other way except that we don't actually see each other face to face. :tlol:
