Nobilis and Chuubo's

    I've mentioned it a couple of times around, but somewhat recently I discovered Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine by Jenna Moran, which led me to her other work Nobilis.

    They're diceless tabletop RPGs - Nobilis is about suddenly being a demigod and thrust into a war between the horrible people that want reality to live and the pretty but soulless people that want reality to die, and Chuubo's is... well, it's a system with a hyperflexible mythology but the setting it's built for is a town where the sun died and then a new sun shown in the sky and it's all very ~symbolic~.

    Anyway: other fans?

    (I find it difficult to GM, so I probably won't run either unless it's in the appropriate Chuubo's genre for reactive GMing, but I want to know if other people find it cool!)

    Note to self revive the shit out of this thread Because Jenna Moran is kickstarting a new game, Glitch, next month.

    Also because a single post from vacuum energy about how good these games and setting are is hilariously underselling it.

    So. Uh.

    Chuubo’s Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine. Nobilis. Glitch.

    Be a god. Survive the end of the world. Smooch, or perhaps discover you always were, A beautiful and unearthly spirit of the formless void with stars falling forever in your eyes.

    Further details to follow after I take a nap and whenever I next want to procrastinate something else.
