The Amagi Games site is back. In spite of a couple of abortive attempts to return, Levi Kornelsen’s Amagi Games site has basically been down since a nasty crash months ago. The site is a collection of interesting rules systems designed to be plugged into other games. Levi describes the site as “a site for tinkering with tabletop roleplaying games.”
Many of the rules systems on this site are quite unusual. For example, The Soap Opera plugin is a way to turn a game into a soap opera. Like most of the rules systems on this site, the actual rules for accomplishing this are short and sweet. While I probably would not actually use many of the rules systems presented here because they just do not fit the style of game I run, I find them very interesting and thought-provoking reading.
The new Amagi Games site is hosted on Google Sites which should make it less likely to crash and burn the way the original site did early in the year. You can find it here: http://www.amagi-games.org/
[Don’t forget that rare Traveller fanzines (Working Passage & Imperium Staple) and the RPGA limited edition AD&D Modules R1 (To the Aid of Falx) and R2 (Investigation of Hydell) are available (for Cancer Fund Donors) — addition to the usual PDF downloads every donor has access to. There is still plenty of time to make a donation and get in on the giveaway which ends at the end of October 2009. Thanks much to those who have already donated.]
