I assume doing this informs what at a minimum you need to create (NPCS, enemies, factions) for your hook/goal. Do you just write a sentence or two for each?

Great idea. But, my fear would be a lot of unused content that work was put into. Is that the case?

Love it. Thanks again, so much. I think I'll implement this next game based on your input.

comment Systems similar to D&D 3.5
I personally like the explanation of E6 and its rules at RPG.net which also includes download links for the actual PDF. Here's the link: forum.rpg.net/…

May I ask you a follow-up then as well? Did you have any trouble with one-hit kills or monsters that could do direct Wound damage?

comment How do I represent semi-realistic gun fire-fights using Pathfinder/D&D 3.5 cover rules?
As I commented above, I was only really concerned with using the cover rules to simulate semi-realistic combat. As stated above in my comment, "Massive Damage Threshold may or may not make it in. We shall see. I actually don't have an issue with the hip points system. I treat them more as luck, stamina, active defense, and vigor." Hit Points when treated as anything other than physical damage work well, and that's how I treat them. But thank you for the reply.

comment What software utilities provide support for playing Microscope?
Actually, Google Docs can give you a drawing or a presentation document in which you can throw as many different colored text rectangles as you would like. But, you may be right, it may not fit what you are looking for.

Massive Damage Threshold may or may not make it in. We shall see. I actually don't have an issue with the hit points system. I treat them more as luck, stamina, active defense, and vigor. Abstracting isn't an issue. It's the only way my group and I have really played. The goal this time was to make an almost wargrame-like game where we had a set of rules governing the tactical parts of the battlefield. That way the players could make their own tactical decisions. Almost like chess. Alas, it's not meant to be with this system. Thanks to everyone who gave an answer to this question.

Agreed. It seems trying to shoe-horn the grid rules into what I want won't work. I'm going to have to build it myself, which sucks.
