If all goes well and the planets align, shortly after this goes up I should be holding the first meeting (pre-game discussion and character creation) for an FIM-themed BESM game! We will be playing using a modified version of Big Eyes, Small Mouths Second Edition (a.k.a. The Good One), a sadly out-of-print roleplaying game designed for anime-esque campaigns. My modifications can be read here–four new character templates, a handful of new Attributes, a skill-cost chart with a few new skills (the ones with specializations listed are new or modified, all the others use the default specializations), and a new game mechanic designed to reflect the power of friendship and solve one of the game’s problems, which is that it’s fairly common to make a character that has an Energy Point pool and no abilities that use it.
None of which makes any sense to those of you unfamiliar with BESM (likely all of you). It’s Saturday and tomorrow’s post is proving unexpectedly difficult, I’m afraid, so I was somewhat strapped for a PTOTD.
