I'm incredibly surprised and yet not surprised that you killed everyone because one player failed to save the ship.

I mean, it makes sense, but it's also very punishing for one bad roll to be the demise of all....

Frankly, though, I think it's pretty fitting for an RtD. Everyone's always up against such unbeatable odds that death for the whole party is pretty damn likely.
I also admire the fact that you're willing to stick it to your players and kill them. I don't think I could ever do that.

The reason they all died was not only because the pilot failed to save the ship, it was also because the bottom half of the ship was lost, the reactor was ejected and a number of other problems.

Got to love low rolls. Lets you throw a wrench in the works. Or in my case, a hand grenade.

But seriously, a failure on the dice is a failure, and a 1 is meant to be as bad as it can be, and a 5 as best as it can be.

EDIT : Also, I found another ship from my RtD. It was going to be the next ship the players had.

Strangely enough, it has gone transparent. Huh.

If you wrote down all that stuff caek into a book/PDF and include rules and examples and lists and such it could become a new ruleset, even if it's not based on D20.

I might do that one day, once I've finished writing my book.

You're writing a book? Info please. I'm very interested in writing.

EDIT - Oh damn. I'm derailing the thread. PM me please.

Hmmm... I was thinking of maybe doing a completely player-run game. That would work, right? If all we need is extremely limited interaction from the game's creator, we could do that. Although... I'm not sure exactly what kind of game it would be... Maybe something like a card game? Another would be to go purely based off of stats (already mentioned) for something similar to an RtD. That would still require a lot of effort from the person who makes the game... What is even supposed to go in this thread now? Simple game ideas or just any game idea? What if there was a game that required so much thinking on the player's part that the person running the game wouldn't have to check as often? That would probably be a bad idea to get people to play it, though... Maybe just do a simple game of luck, then have various things happen to the players depending on how well they did... Wait. That's basically an RtD. Yeah. No real ideas worth looking at here. Lots of things I should probably go back over and delete and stuff, too. That's all.

Yeah but I can feel other people vomiting in sadness somewhere else.
