Free RPG day in NC

The culmination of 24 years of pen and paper design. A balanced classless system designed from the ground up.

Aspect has an easy to learn combat system that uses the same basic mechanics for physical, mental, and social combat - allowing you to play as a diplomat, sage, warrior, or anything you can dream of, and still contribute to the adventure in exciting ways.

I just ran the Aspect quickstart Free RPG scenario here at Game Theory in Raleigh NC, and it went over very well. I had full table of 8 and everyone enjoyed the system. I can see myself running it as a regular thing here. Good work folks.

We're glad you enjoyed it. We do have another module of about the same length: The Derriston Fire, which can be used as a sequel (or prequel) to Here There Be Demons very easily.

Glad that you mentioned the Derriston Fire... I recently ran BOTH adventures back to back and it was pretty cool. I used Palimbar and Jebbido who met with Lorenna on the road... it went over pretty well! I put Derriston first out of simplicity of character selection. I pretty much allowed for almost any NPC to be chosen because I started at the Derriston Inn. Then they went through the Derriston Fire and on to the Demons, which seemed not only logical but easiest to ramp up the bad guys. For you Devs out there this was the party at the end of the day:
-Palimbar
-Jebbido
-Gillis
-Lorenna (To protect Baloc)
-Crystal
-Della (Came in to Derriston during the Fire)
-Baloc (As part of a Debt to Palimbar)
-Fumo (NPC)

ON a side note there was good RP b/w Baloc and Tallon, who grudgingly agreed to take up the mantle of Leadership while Baloc saw things through to the end. It turned out to be a lot of fun with the group essentially circling up and unleashing AoE style attacks. I brought in 2 more scourge demons and doubled the imps on every encounter... It worked out well and if I get to do it again, I might just add something in from the Aspect Main Book, perhaps a dragon?

Let me know if you would like to find out more! Glad you enjoyed Aspect! Hope you continue to do so :)

That sounds pretty awesome. I also recently ran HTBD and Derriston back to back, but reversed the order (Demons first, then Derriston). Now I'm starting a longer campaign with the group regarding the sinister force behind the Derriston Fire. One of the new critters I introduced in the last session are an elite brute ogre (a request from the monster request forum). Two of them proved pretty brutal, and with their high Athletics, they are able to passively cross a 5 foot stream in the middle of the encounter, even in the blind rage stance. Here are the stats in long form.
