G.I. Joe Role Playing Game

Negli ultimi giorni ho scaricato da joepedia numerose immagini a colori che ritraggono i personaggi, veicoli e accessori della serie animata classica della sunbow.
Motivato da tale abbondanza, ho deciso di creare numerosi profili dei personaggi e veicoli presenti nella serie animata, cominciando dalla prima mini-serie (A Real American Hero).
Il regolamento su cui mi sono basato è B.E.S.M. (Big Mouth Small Eyes) della defunta casa produttrice canadese "Guardians of Order". E' un regolamento generico creato per poter fornire regole con cui ricreare la propria ambientazione preferita, ispirata a manga, anime e cartoni animati. Il regolamento l'ho scaricato gratuitamente in formato pdf e fatto stampare in copisteria:
Ecco alcuni esempi dei profili. (ma ho praticamente creato tutti i profili dei personaggi e mezzi della prima mini-serie):

In the last days I have downloaded from Joepedia numerous images from the characters, vehicles and accessories of the classic animated series of the Sunbow G.I. Joes. Motivated by such abundance, I decided to create numerous profiles of the characters and vehicles from the animated series, starting with the first mini-serie (A Real American Hero). I used the rules from B.E.S.M. (Big Mouth Small Eyes) by the defunct Canadian "Guardians of Order". It is a generic rulebook created to provide rules with which to recreate your favorite setting, inspired by manga, anime and cartoons. I have downloaded the rulebook for free in pdf format and printed it in a copy shop: Here are some examples of the profiles. (but I have created all the profiles of the characters and vehicles of the first mini-series):

Female Black Orc

A simple conversion of a "Laughing Monk" miniature, I included a pair of green stuff fangs, a bigger axe and two severed heads on the belt. I will use it as a female black orc for my oldhammer games.



I yet painted this miniature in 2009, for my mordheim games, here the picture of the old painted orc. I decided to repaint her to include in my oldhammer games.

[Sellswords] Battle Report: The Healing Witch of Via Nano

Today I played the fourth scenario of my Solo campaign of "Sellswords & Spellslingers". The basic scenario was from the rulebook: The healer pg57.

Sabrina, the Healing Witch, has lent her services to wounded adventurers, refusing her services to raiders and criminals. A gang of Brigands has decided to end the healer's life once and for all.

Amron wanted to meet Sabrina, called by the locals the "Healing Witch", an healer that lived near the "Via Nano". He was sure she could teach to him some of her alchemical secrets.
He was displeased to see that some vile brigands were approaching threateningly to the house of the healer.
Amron: "I will not miss the opportunity to expand my arcane knowledge! These brigands are an unpleasant obstacle, they must be eliminated! The healer must live, at least until I will need her, of course..."

 Overview of the board with foes and PCs deployed.

The healer house. Sabrina the Healing Witch is hiding in her hut during the game.

Silver pieces: 130 Equipment: Scroll of Heal
Amron is the bastard son of the rich merchant and explorer Dante Graciale of Tobaro. He is an half elf. His father never said much about Amron's elf mother. He simply told him that his mother chose his name before abandoning him and that she was a witch. Being an half elf and the result of an illicit relationship, Amron could not be officially recognized by the Graciale family, however his father grew him as his son and he could enjoy a comfortable life. When he was an adult, he finds out to have the spellcaster gift and his father paid a magician to teach him. Dissatisfied with the limiting lessons of his teacher, he decided to begin a journey in the Border Princes, where he could test is magic skills and learn magic faster.

 DAETHSKAR "the Dark Knight" 35xp

Negative Trait: Burly

He is the loyal body guard of Amron. He follows and protects his master wherever he goes.
 
The TWINS 10xp
Traits: Armor lvl1 (6xp), Danger Sense (4xp)
Silver Pieces: 207
The Twins is/are just a goblin mutant mercenary hired by Amron.

with a good shot of his fireball, Amron burns two brigands, meanwhile his minions are advancing...
Amron: "Anyone who opposes to my will must burn!" 😈

Amron finish the last brigand of the horde with another fireball.
Amron: "Too easy..." 😒

A brigand try to ambush Daethskar, but he is quickly killed by the dark warrior.
Amron: "These brigands are so weak, it will be easier than I thought..." 😏

Daethska gain the treasure from the dead brigand, while "The Twins" enter in the house and take out of the house the healer. Amron cast another fireball and the boss of the brigands is gone too.
Amron: "Do not be afraid. We are here to protect you, come with us if you want to live."

The twins moves fast with the healer towards the edge of the board. Daethskar and Amron cover him.

The Twins finally carry to safety the healer.
The Twins: "You safe, now. Master come soon to speak."

The PCs gain a reward of 3xp, and 16 silver pieces.
The healer is grateful and teach to Amron how to brew healing potions (the alchemy trait at half cost to produce healing potions only)

Brigands

Two citadel pre slotta pirates and a barbarian. I will use them as brigands in my oldhammer games.
