In the last days of April 2017, I came up with the idea of running an RPG session (or sessions) during the May long weekend in the so-called sandbox style, described i.a. here or here. In 2016, I run several such sessions of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay II edition (WFRP II ed), but despite all my liking of the Old World (and especially Border Princes, where the action of those sessions took place), I wanted to try another setting, and more importantly, another system.
At the time, Michał Dzidt, presented the early version of his own system, which he called OHET. I looked through this short rulebook and found that it suited my needs to a great extent. In OHET there are no experience levels, or health points, or the range of weapons and spells carefully measured in meters (or worse, Imperial units). Only 2 out of 6 possible test results are plain, “succeeded/failed”, and the other 4 results force the Game Master to be more creative, which encourages a varied gameplay.
As I mentioned in the first text on this blog, I want to write about various topics that are interesting to me. The time has come for something else than the travel reports: a completely new topic, namely one of my favorite hobbies: role-playing games (RPG). However, I do not abandon the travel reports, the new ones will appear sooner or later.
Meanwhile, I invite you to a report from two sessions played in the system named Outstanding Heroes and Extraordinary Threats, in short OHET (this is how the game is most often called, so I am going to use this abbreviation).
