    I just finished running a game of Cat RPG. Here is the game log:


    Cat RPG is a game where the players are cats, defending their humans from invisible extradimensional horrors that feed on human thoughts.

    There is also lots of d'awwwww.

    Description of the neighborhood cats to follow.

    All of the action so far has taken place in the area around The Alley, where our cats stalk and keep vigilant watch against the malignant Snufles.

    The cats:

    Hummer: An old, but wise, cat saddled with a party-animal human that often forgets to feed him. His patience is unrivaled among the cats of The Alley.

    Sorcerer: A stray Norwegian Forest Cat with no real home, but with two households of humans that he can often bother a meal out of. The lethality of his paws is well-known.

    Pumpkin: An adorable adopted orange kitten, ever-inquisitive and blessed with the strong ability to See That Which Can Not Be Seen.

    And finally, Sir Fluffyslayer VII, or "Fluffy", who lives in the lap of luxury and still keeps his place as the fastest cat for blocks around.

    You don't have to listen that much, the log is in the OP. As for the actual rolling and OOC comments, those were in another channel. For gameplay, you roll a d20 and add your stat to the roll, it may be against a target number or it may be an opposed roll. It goes by very quickly, even combat; initiative is 1d20+Speed, then you attack by pouncing or batting, and the enemy can try to dodge (speed) or bat you right back. If they succeed at dodging, no damage, if it's contested, then the winner deals damage. The damage is 1d6 for a bat, 2d6 for a pounce, and 3d6 for a bite, and is dealt directly to the stats, which range from 6-18 in the case of the player cats. Easy and quick.

    It was pretty easy- setting up took less than an hour, from deciding "Hey, I should try to run Cat RPG" to getting the characters finalized and housed.

    I made The Alley based on a place I used to live, and just dropped some people into it, then let the cats pick their homes.

    Everyone seemed to want to create their own distinct humans, and one of the cats is semi-homeless, so I figured I could group them all together in the houses surrounding The Alley. All it really means for game changes is that their protected area is a little bigger, and they tend to get split up more (damn hyperactive kittens).

    In the PDF the statistics for enemies are listed as xd6, does this mean that you roll that many d6's randomly to determine the creature's stats?
    >> OP 05/30/10(Sun)04:06 No.10151877
    No, all checks are opposed 1d20+Stat.

    So if it says it has a Bat of 1d6, you roll a d6 to determine its Bat. If it's a 3, then all checks to Bat something are 1d20+3.

    Cat stats are all 3d6 (or 3d5+3, if you're playing with a dicebot, since you reroll 1s). Other creatures' stats are different.

    I don't think so. Chances are Heart gets used a lot... probably Transcend to follow a human from dream to dream.

    Physical stats might be used to break out of one of those "running in slow motion" nightmares...

    The book we have doesn't go into much detail, but the system is so mechanically simple that nothing would change between the waking world and the dreaming one.
