IMPORTANT FOR ANY HoO OR PJO FANS WHO FOLLOW ME!! PLEASE REBLOG!!!
I can’t believe I didn’t think to share this with you guys sooner, but recently a friend of mine and I had an idea to make a Heroes of Olympus tabletop rpg. Now, I don’t imagine many of my 3 followers are into the whole DnD/tabletop rpg thing but hopefully one day we can turn it into a digital version that’ll resemble Pottermore.
The game is intended to be played like the average life of a demigod. The characters’ parentage will be limited to the big 12 at first while we’re in beginning production but you’ll roll two six-sided dice or one twelve-sided dice to determine your parentage(being a child of Juno/Hera or Artemis/Diana requires Game Master approval).
From there your character will be given a certain amount of “Boon Points” to be used to purchase abilities or equipment. Each character starts with a single weapon of Imperial Gold or Celestial Bronze(Children of Hades or Pluto may eventually upgrade to Stygian Iron).
Greek hero characters will be encouraged to use their points to purchase powers from their godly parents, due to the Greek gods being more hands-on in the world. Examples include a bonus to crafting for children of Hephaestus or possibly control of fire. Apollo’s kids get a bonus to performing, archery, or treating injuries, Children of Zeus can have bonus to leadership or control of lightning and air. etc.
Roman heroes will be encouraged to use their points to upgrade weapons and equipment. Examples include better armor, chariot, additional weapons, or magical weapon’s like Jason’s Coin or Riptide.
In special circumstances character’s can even get powers from their gods other than their parent, but here’s where it get’s interesting…. Such gifts only apply while one remains in good standing with their patron.
There’ll be a prestige system that measures your standing among different groups the higher your prestige rank with them, the better the benefits. But each benefit has a required prestige threshold, if your prestige drops below the required amount, you lose the gift.
Players will also have options to play as a Centaur, Cyclopes, Nymphs, or Satyrs.
I’ll post more about the game as we get more finished, probably even start a blog about it.
PLEASE REBLOG, EVEN IF IT DOESN’T SEEM LIKE SOMETHING YOU’D ENJOY. I’M TRYING TO SPREAD THE WORD SO I CAN GET FEEDBACK OR SUGGESTIONS FROM PEOPLE WHO ENJOY THIS SORT OF THING.
