Tibet the RPG

Post  Mr Nay on Sat Jul 03, 2010 8:12 am

This looks really cool, Tibet rocks, RPGs rock. Together they are Captain Planet!

In 1950, Chinese communist soldiers marched in to Tibet. They forced the Tibetans to agree to a slow conversion to Communism. Yet as the number of troops in Tibet grew, so did the intolerance of the Chinese.
It is 1959 and Tibet is a country on the verge of chaos. Tales of Chinese atrocities are spreading. The Chinese seem ready to disband the Tibetan government at any moment. The people fear for the fate of their religious leaders. An anti-Chinese rebellion is slowly engulfing the whole country in warfare.

Yet things in Tibet are not always what they seem. Tibet is a place where ancient mystical teachings have been hidden. The opportunities for enlightenment are powerful, but so are the dangers. Sorcerers, malevolent spirits and cursed ritual objects are just a few of the magical hazards. For all its peace and beauty, Tibet is a harsh and dangerous place where one must be strong or smart to survive.
There is a free download of the basic PDF.

…The monk gripped her phurba, a tri-cornered ritual knife. She began to chant a mantra she had learned from ancient books in her monastery library. The deep, powerful tones echoed against the stone walls of the ruins. She could not see the thing, but she knew it was here. She could feel its terrible hatred and pain.
She had been on her way to Lhasa. She was to have joined the crowds of refugees surrounding the Potala. She had heard disturbing rumors that the Chinese were preparing to arrest the Dalai Lama, and she would put her body between him and the Chinese if that’s what it took. Yet on her way she had come to a village where the spirit had attacked. Seeing the damage it had done, she decided that visiting Lhasa would have to wait.
She had tracked the thing for weeks. She had traveled over freezing mountain passes, she had forged raging rivers, she had hidden from Chinese patrols. She had followed the trail of destruction and misery. When she lost the trail she had consulted village oracles and astrologers. She learned that this was once a simple spirit of the earth, before a Chinese mining operation drove it insane.
Suddenly she saw movement out of the corner of her eye. The thing hurled a huge piece of the temple wall at her. She dodged, rolling and coming up in a crouch. She did not dare to let the mantra waver. Then she could feel the thing on her, its touch like a draft against her body. It looked for some weak spot where it could enter her and destroy her from the inside. The young monk continued the mantra and tried to concentrate on compassion. She tried to concentrate on the lifetimes of suffering the demon was earning. She tried to think of how much suffering she could prevent by ending this current incarnation. She lashed out with the phurba. She felt it lurch in her hand as it pieced the creature’s heart…

The thing with Wild Talents is that it is a powers toolbox, I can yoink almost any setting and use WT as the system.
I am thinking of a Rifts style Omniverse-hopping ragtag band of parahumans battling cthuloid steampunk transdimensional raiders on an alternate earth. No seriously, I am.
