The final beta for the Transformers Tabletop is out! This is the first working, fully playable build meant for balance testing and so people can get their hands on it and get a good feel for what to expect when the final version finally comes out.
Players will get to try the new character creation system. This begins with choosing the type of race or Transformer you are, and then building on from there with your height and rolled stats. You are able to fully customize everything you want about your Transformer, from size, height, color, shape, and style. You choose your weapons and items, how you want them to work, and you choose your skills, talents and traits. These flesh out your character, molding it uniquely.
The Transformers Tabletop can take place in any universe that you please. Whether it is Animated, Prime, Energon, or G1, there is something for you and a system to work with you flesh out your own universe.
Players work together for a common goal, solving mysteries and missions the GM makes for them. The GM creates a world for the players to adventure and battle in. Players and the GM choose what faction, what world, what universe, and what you want. Anything is possible. You can even create your own race and worlds to explore in the Transformer’s universe.
You can get together in groups with people you know in real life, and even online, using such programs as Mumble and Skype.
Games are played using D10s (Ten sided Dice). You will need at least two, as the game depends greatly on 1D100 (Two ten sided dice).
“It is based on BRP (Basic Roleplaying) System. It is heavily modified and incredibly customizable. The game allows everyone to take any skill as they please, but only if they meet the prerequisites and pay the experience. The class system has been thrown out, for a more varied sense of gameplay. There is a new size system that allows players to roll a 1D100 to find height, where players can be the size of a minicon and human, to 100ft tall battle machines.”
“The weapon system is much different from most games, as you start with a base weapon, and add modifiers and upgrades to that weapon. So you might start with a Broadsword, but later on in the game that sword will be an Energon laced Extended rocket propelled sword that explodes on impact.”
The first Beta gained about 600 Downloads. I got a decent amount of information on balance, and ideas to implement and create. The second Beta only gained roughly 200, and there was very little information that went through.
Now I hope I can get a ton of downloads, with a lot of people testing and playing around with the system, so I know what to do when I compile and ready the final game.
Message and contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me an Ask here on Tumblr.
Every bit of information, ideas, and questions are helpful, and I hope to get as many as I can. If you could, please reblog this so I can get as much assistance as I can get to make this agood, playable game that groups will be able to try.
