Inquisitor Game Discussion / Re: Gav Thorpe Here - Ask Me Anything!
« Last post by Inquisitor_Snarf on Yesterday at 11:58:00 PM »
Seeing the responses here has made me wonder if there is a market for a GM-led narrative miniatures game though, perhaps one that was universal so could be played with any miniatures...

NOW THIS is an interesting idea. How much of the Inquisitor rules could one lift and integrate into a new system legally? My understanding is that in general, game systems are not copy-writable only unit stats.

I have designed some RPG systems over the last few years and a Narrative Miniatures Wargame sounds like a great challenge for an upcoming project.

Progress on the Cardinal.

The shrine is finished:







Now I need to do a cane in his left hand, add some digi rings to his right hand and some cables running from his belt devices to the shrine (which will serve as his life support system too).

I may design a second head with a mask similar to that in the concept art too.

Re. the May event in London - yes, absolutely! I'd be happy to help; just let me know what you need. I have 54mm miniatures, but could put together some 28mm in advance of the event too if need be.
I'm not an experienced GM, but would be happy to help with admin, set-up, terrain... I'd love to be involved in getting an Inquisitor game/tournament set up :)

If it's 50 to get in and play, I almost certainly can't do both days, which is unfortunate.
I've not had any kind of discussion with the organisers about this yet, but knowing how small the community is, I know we can't afford to see people put off by the ticket price.

Some budget could make the event really shiny (e.g. mission briefings handed out in wax sealed parchment envelopes, custom terrain, etc), but I can't imagine we need a massive prize pool, and I'd feel somewhat odd trying to run the event for profit.

Unrelated note, and at the risk of initiating a squabble - seems like this might be the sort of event that would benefit from both 54mm and 28mm tables.
If possible, I'd love to. Nice 54mm projects are great at catching attention, but nice 28mm conversions are much better at convincing people.

I've tried approaching both the Ammobunker and the largest INQ28 Facebook group, although so far I've only had two "sounds cool, but I won't be able to make it myself" answers. I may try hitting up specific people to see if they can help the idea get any traction.

I'll shoot the exec an email to ask about their plans for what will be there - it'll show interest from the community, at the very least.

I think even just a baseline of what the ticket pricing could range between would be very useful at this point.
There's a 10 entry ticket to the overall LGT, and the suggested prices are that 1 day events are 20 and 2-day events 40.
(They also mentioned half day, but I can't see that being a good idea when people are dragging themselves hundreds of miles).

However, the final price is discussed with the organisers, and I'm guessing those prices expect that the running costs include a hefty prize pool (for which I can't think of a lot of good ideas).

If the event as a whole is tournament-heavy without any general foot traffic then having a demo table isn't really a good use of resources. However if they are angling more for the convention format then a demo table makes more sense.
I'll have to ask about the format.

However, my thinking at the moment is that our numbers for the last few years are often very thin even without people sitting out to run demo tables - an assistant GM would probably be more useful.

As I'm still one of the Facebook page admins, I've glanced over the conversation with the organiser over past few days and it's certainly a very interesting offer. (Best if you continue as single point of contact Dave! Avoids any confusion.)

As for whether we would run a campaign day or an IGT, I wouldn't mind either. Of course if we're there for 2 days we could run both on different days.

I would like to get to an event again it's been far too long, and like Ruaridh, travel to London is a lot simpler than travel to Nottingham when you're coming from Scotland.

I believe everyone was good for tomorrow, however I am then absent for 3 weeks (back on the 19th Nov)

Managed to make some progress on the Missionary too:



He still needs sandals, more pouches, some chains, purity seals etc.

Oh wow, this does sound big.  I had a message from a guy through the Carthaxian Inquisitor Facebook page at the start of the week asking if I was the chap that ran the WHW and Dark Sphere days (which I haven't), and bounced him in your direction Marco.  Hadn't a clue it was for anything like this!

It's a fantastic opportunity to show off Inquisitor to a large room full of circulating people, as well as an opportunity to have a campaign day.  I'd like to say I could make it, and would probably make it a two day trip to make the most of the opportunity.  I can take sleeper trains or fly to London from Inverness so travel there is a lot more direct than it ever is to Nottingham.  However, May time is when I expect I'll be very busy with MSc stuff, so it's a maybe from me for now.
