    I was going to post a "which of these scenarios should I run in FUDGE" thread and post a bunch of various boring scenarios/settings that I'd semi-developed, when the best idea in the world hit me.

    get some culture

    Basically, crappy themed gangs punch each other in the late 70s.

    The PCs would be high ranking members in an unimportant gang trying to become more important.

    Thank you, jesus christ I was beginning to get worried.

    Anyway, here's the basic melee combat system I'd use. All characters (PCs and NPCs) have a number between one and seven that determines their skill in a particular kind of fighting. Let's say Ajax (Punching skill: 6) is fighting Steve (Punching skill: 4). Ajax moves next to Steve, rolls a random number between +4 and -4*, and adds it to his Punching stat. Steve rolls his random number and adds it to his punching stat. Whoever gets the higher score punches the other one and does their standard amount of punching damage. If they tie, nobody successfully does anything. If the winner wins by more than one point, he does bonus damage equal to the number of points beyond the first that he won by.

    A lot of things give buffs/debuffs to the numbers, but that's basically it. One dice roll per turn assuming no weird shit.

    Most other checks are handled the same way, only with different skills/attributes. For example, a character trying to scam a second character would roll Scam Artistry, and the target character would resist with Intelligence.

    With a decent story this could be the greatest thing.

    *it uses 3d6 and is a bell curve.

    You (or according to the map, U) are Ajax*. You are pretty big and you like hitting people. This has caused you to rise to a position of moderate importance in the Warriors.

    You are in an alley with your good friend Warrior Windowsmasher** (W). You are talking about all the ladies you have had sex with. He has relatively little to contribute to this conversation, but you don't care because that makes you seem more awesome.

    You look out onto the street to see if there are any ladies you might bone, but it is three in the damn morning and the answer is no. But there are three Jones Street Boy Headkickers (J)! They are on your turf openly! This is unacceptable.

    To your right is a waist high fence, the sidewalk, a car, and the street, in that order. Up the sidewalk there are three JSBs, a pay phone, and another parking meter.

    The Jones Street Boys have not seen you yet, but they are walking towards your alley. Still, you do have many options.


    STR (ability to lift/move stuff, melee damage increaser): 6
    BIG (size, resistance to getting thrown/knocked around/poisoned): 5
    INT (all mental abilities): 3
    SP (hexes moved per turn): 4

    Punchan: 6
    Grapplan: 5
    Intimidatan: 5
    Sneakan: 4
    Acrobatican: 3

    **Warrior Windowsmasher
    STR: 4
    BIG: 4
    INT: 3
    SP: 5

    Vandalizan: 5
    Small Clubban: 4

    well, normally i'd think about gaining the high ground and throwing shit at the JSB donkey kong style to reduce their health/numbers, but there is a severe lack of trash cans. I guess, seeing as I'm weaponless (aside from my ever present mitts) I'll send Windowsmasher to hide behind the car, he must have more sneakan than Ajax, and I'll step out to confront/rush the JSBs. While they engage with me, WS can sneak around the car and attack them from behind, hopefully gaining a tasty bonus from the suprise attack. if all else fails, I'm sure Ajax can handle the JSBs...maybe...probably.

    You get about two steps and they jump you.

    They charge you a little bit too fast, misjudge the timing, and just stumble into you without really hurting you at all.

    The third JSB jumps up and down on the car and yells insults about your masculinity.

    (turn 1)
    The JSB attempts to punch you. You grab the JSB.

    (turn 2)
    You pick up the JSB over your head. He says "Um, you know that stuff about helping us find something? I was looking for, um, the border of your territory so I could leave it without any tr"

    (turn 3)
    You throw the JSB. He lands on his face. You tell him to stay out, but he probably doesn't hear you, on account of just being thrown face first at his friend's unconscious body.

    Eventually, Warrior Windowsmasher comes back, with a couple of your thugs. He says that the constabulary arrested the JSB that chased him. Also, the constable told him to tell you to go home. The thugs look at the wrecked JSBs and seem somewhat confused.

    That was my general plan really, I didn't even want to set it in the Warriors universe, just the generic Themed Gangs of the Past setting.

    Basically once I make a map, figure out the various gangs and their resources/personalities, I'd just say "you are in charge of gang x, go" to the PCs and do my best to let them do what they felt like doing.

    ethnic minorities ahooooooooooyyyyyyy!

    Although most of the gangs in warriors were rather ethnically diverse (affirmative action, fuck year!)

    *Gotta have a chick gang like the lizzies/escher
    *A rich kids gang who have the best gear and throw money at their problems,
    *something like the orphans, lots of numbers but relatively weak and crap
    *a militant/military themed gang that calls their leader general and the men troops/soldiers (although most gangs call them soldiers anyways in the movie)
    *I want a fuckawesome gang based on the Village People
    *a skinhead/reacist gang
    *a religious/cult like gang or a satanist/occult gang...or both
    *a gang that cares more about style and fashion and cars and pussy more than getting up and getting turf.
    * a masked gang/always have their identity hidden
    *a redneck gang

    some of these ideas bleed into each other.

    OP will there be rules for getting turf, maintaining it, recruiting, tagging, bribing cops, raiding other gang's cribs, running protection rackets etc.?

    The 10th Street (or whatever) Grimlocks.

    Their gimmick is to wear full helmets designed to look like Grimlock's head. Any Grimlock. Especially if Transformers doesn't exist in the campaign setting.

    The gang leader has a monocle and tophat on his helm, and speaks and acts in a rather dapper manner, even when smashing heads. Standard Grimlocks gangers are daft as your average Ork.

    I approve of pretty much all of this.

    All I have done is squad based combat that the PCs are in, and small scale negotiations/social stuff (scaring/negotiating with/scamming individuals).

    I do want it to stay relatively small scale though. The smallest gangs would probably only have 10-15 people. Still, you're right, I do need to come up with large scale mechanics for territory/income stuff.

    I want the most important resource to be reputation though, naturally.

    well if you are serious about this lets keep the ball rolling, this could be fun. I won't invoke the dreaded we get shit done gaffe, but it wouldn't take much to flesh this out further, seems mostly narrative anyhow.
    Seems liek with territory, income and reputation (as well as your standing with the law) I'me getting a post game sequence somewhat like necromunda, but with more talkan and less rollan.
    also, how do you recruit? based on reputation, the bigger you ar ethe more people want to join you? i like that idea better than the hired hel of necromunda.
    if you suck at leading your gang will the start to go elsewhere?
    is there a loyalty stat to show how quickly someone in your gang turns on you? Swan would have died before he took off his vest, but i wouldn't trust Ajax if there was some strange wool around.

    Yes agreed obviously. Also no guns or shit.

    It might get interesting if getting powerful enough made the mafia notice you, or something.


    Yeah, rep = number and quality of dudes, and it makes lesser gangs just try their best to avoid you (and more powerful ones be more likely to cause you problems).

    I guess you could spend money on mercs too.

    I'm thinking that dishonorable behaviors (especially stuff like disguising yourself as a civilian or another gang member) would carry a MASSIVE penalty to rep, and rep isn't really your ability to recruit dudes, it's your ability to keep and hold dudes. So, for example, having 10 rep means you have 20 mediocre dudes available to you, even if they aren't always the same dudes from week to week (and losing that means you go back to being crappy).

    Oh damn I just had the best idea, what if the territory holding system was basically Risk?

    There's a map with different territories on it. You get soldiers, who are interchangeable. You place a number of them each turn based on how many/what territories you control. After you do that, you attack with three soldiers at a time and roll d6s to decide whether the attacker or the defender loses soldiers, and how many.

    Actually, doing it this way would take the focus away from individual feats of badassery. I don't think my idea was that great now.

    at least you can admit it and stay focused on what's important...boppin'.

    Territory could be more like Civilization 3 (?), the more rep you have the wider your are of influence is. Eventually you will swallow up other territories with your awesome, and the shopkeepers/citizens will default to you as the boss. Of course if the original gang takes issue with this you will have to bop right through them.

    Bludgeoning - large
    Vandalism (extra damage to inanimate objects, chance to get a weapon out of it)

    I'm not going to list gifts because I kind of expect players to make them up as to what is appropriate (and then I decide the numbers and mechanics) but they would all be either something like Good Eyesight where you get bonuses to a variety of rolls, or they would take away the penalties you would normally take while doing a ridiculous move like throwing a dude at another dude or jumping off of something onto three dudes.

    need a trait for 'getting up' essentially, old school tagging, leaving your gang's mark. also distinguish between leaving a quick, rough tag (as in the warriors movie) or an artistic, colorful tag. Quick tags are used for maximising your gangs exposure, but the larger, more skilled ones are used to 'boast' about your importance and presence. If you had time to tag up such a large piece, you must own the place or be so in control even the cops won't touch you.
