Pen and paper RPG??????

I saw something a while ago.  I thought it was rather peculiar, and looked fun at the same time.  I looked it up, but I couldn't figure out what exactly you needed.  I mean, it said a whole bunch of stuff about game masters, game books, finding stuff in pockets, bashing down doors, and the like.       What do I need, and, more importantly, how exactly would one start one?      The books are also what I am wondering about.

How do you make a complicated, fully automatic pen gun that fires BB's?

     Looking from all pen gun instructables, none is trully fully automatic. I came up with the idea of turning a small crank to pull the firing mechanism then release repeatedly. It's kinda' like a gatling gun. But at my disposal are a few HBW pens and no available nor acquirable Bic pens which are wide enough for BB's. I know how to widen HBW pens for BB's but then it's labor intensive. I need another solution. And by the way, people keep talking about loading up a pen with a gravity feed then blowing as hard as I can through the input hole 2, and BB's would spray out the business end. It appears everything here is too simple, so title changed! Don't give me the previous described method.

Then there will be compact version that will just have a shorter barrel than the para-trooper. Then there is a special forces edition that will have a mock silencer, a longer fore grip with side rails for flash lights and laser pens,and will come with a mock scope.

Help me make a sturdy desk organizer box from 8mm MDF wood.

I'm trying to organize the bar area in my restaurant. I'm thinking of an front open box with a couple of dividers for temporary papers, notebooks pens and a compartment for beer and wine openers and such.. This is the waiters (currently just me the owner) places orders on the computer. I want to minimize the space taken from the bar so I'd like to use thin wood like this leftover 8mm MDF piece I have. I thought of cutting the sides to required sizes and then gluing them together but I'm not sure that would be strong enough to hold the approximately 5kg screen on top. It's a touch screen, so for safety I want it to hold a maximum of 8kg. TL;DR Any suggestions? How do I join pieces to make something like this

Has anyone ever used or repaired a SplatMaster marking pistol?

 Hello, This is a long shot but has anyone here had experience with SplatMasters? I bought two of these guns about 15 years ago, second-hand and they have never worked. They dry fire perfectly but the problem comes when I load a CO2 bottle; it leaks. Is this a known fault and can it be remedied? The bottle is punctured on the spike, as it should, then proceeds to hiss and empty immediately. There was nothing around the spike when I bought them so I tried various items ranging from inner tube to gas o-rings, until I ran out of expensive CO2 bottles. It may be possible that the gas is seeping from another part of the gun; Any ideas? Also, according to the photo with the red background I can see that every part seems to be there except a small spring and a ball detent;  Can I simply make one from a pen spring and a ball bearing? Any help appreciated as I would dearly love to have fun with these. Thank You

'Bad things little boys make at home' or 'it was all fun and games until Rex lost his eye!'

Hello all, I just started working on a new card game, the idea was to have cards of common household items that any young boy/girl would use to build something they shouldn't. On each card I'd like to have two or three things you can build with the item... ie. 'Puppy Poo'+ 'A Stick'= Poo on a Stick!; 'Puppy Poo'+ 'Paperbag'+ 'Lighter'= Flaming Bag of Poo. Yes juvenile I know but as a kid these are the things many of us remember... at least if you were one of the kids in art class making smoke bombs with the paints, and blow dart guns with you pens... not that I was...... Anyway, I would just like to know if there is anything you (or 'someone you knew of') build as a kid or last week when you had a bit of 'Gas'+ 'Water Gun'+ 'Lighter'= Flame Thrower; 'Small PVC pipes'+ 'Marshmallows'= Marshmallows Shooter; 'Soda Bottle'+ 'Mentos'= Sticky mess for Mom... you get the idea. Any Ideas you have would be a great help! Thanks, Max

Making my way through 2012.

Hi everyone ! Since Jan. the 1st I decided to set myself up to a little challenge by "making my way" through the year. In 2011 I was really disappointed never to seem to find the time to make enough stuff, so I decided to try to make something - even a little thing - every week. So far so good, as this has forced me to work fast and not overthink projects, and also go dig in the backburner folder to look for ideas. So far I've got : Week #1 : A papercraft and duct-tape mask made after an Army of Two template ; Week #2 : A hand-knit red scarf Week #3 : Chess piece flash drives Week #4 : Mont Black pens, an update on Kingant's original instructable Week #5 : Hackerspace passports from passport-sized Muji notebooks (Instructable coming soon) Week #6 : Plaster mold of my face for a harder version of the mask in Week #1 Week #7 : Custom Wordpress theme for my blog, based on Hamasaki theme (I had lent my Dremel to a friend, which I needed for Week #8 - see below) Week #8 : Fixing and repainting a skateboard found on the street ! Week #9 : Foam mold of the plaster mold from Week #6 ! Week #10 : USB gamepad from original Xbox pad Week #11 : Magnetic blackboard for appartment door (joint project with Rvaya from 5sizes2small Studio) Week #12 : Home-made BookCrossing labels Week #13 : Coming soon ! Have any of you ever tried anything like that ? Anyone have advice for skills to pick up along the way, or fun projects to do ? I'll try to post as many Instructable as possible inspired by that little challenge in the meantime !

TBAG

Alright, well here's the gun I was talking about in my other thread. I'm doing pretty good, I actually got you guys a thread out the day after making the weapon. The name? It stands for TheDunkis' Bad A** Gun. Obviously, it doesn't mean worth crud. I just made it work out so it'd have the acronym TBAG =P.  It's a rather basic weapon. It ties with the BAW for my favorite weapon based around simplicity. I decided to scrap the removable magazine idea and just make it breach load. You can chamber a round directly so you can fire it like a single shot or you can continue to force rounds in to load the magazine. It has a charging "handle" in the side of the stock. And then of course I have the optional sight that I made and never wanted to take apart. Y'know how hard it was getting the little suckers to bend into the connectors like that? The main feature of this gun though is its ability to fire multiple rounds of a new ammo I've been experimenting with. They're not made of K'nex. Rather, they're pen ink cartridges from those bigger, more expensive kind that I can't remember the name of. They're almost the exact same diameter as K'nex rods. They're rather lightweight but, like oodammo, the majority of the weight is focused on the front. It's also somewhat pointy so it's just a tad more aerodynamic and fun to shoot into objects =P. They're very accurate and stable without the use of fins or anything so they get decent range. Obviously I wouldn't fire them at a living thing but it did give me the idea of using some sort of foam armor or something so that you could keep track of hits and such. Anyways, I like the feel of it. It's rather balanced and compact enough without being awkward to handle. I'm probably going to tape the handle. Expect a video tomorrow. I'm not sure when I'll post but might do it this weekend if I have the time.

need low- tech medication taken/counting device,multiple strands , like a ranger klic bead counter

I have tried many of the sync programs including telephone call in reqall syncing with evernote. i may have to give that i try again, but there are times i don't have my phone /itouch within arms reach, I also have had problems where the syncing in evernote seems off and i need to keep a better count of pain meds,One is an extremely powerful very fast acting buccal tablet.. 5 to 15 minutes for breakthrough pain. Due to the change in pain daily and sometimes extreme breakthrough pain, my cognitive mind is shot and i am still trying y best to keep my daily count accurate, and counting helps me try and lower it by changing my activities. My ability to focus and write has gone downhill.. i have one med i may take 3 times a day at 10mg, or many times try and break it up to more frequent times but same dose, rather than 10mg(2 tabs) at one time i may take 5 and 3 hours later take the other 5 mg, i do this to avoid the side effects of the other meds, so i don't get as sleepy ,lethargic, i have another med i take usually 4 times a day, but sometimes 6 times and difference lucky 3 times.. so i need a 3 to 6 string. Another med i take usually 3 times sometimes 4, and may also break them in half it avoid the sleepiness,, that would be a 3 to 5 beads. i also have another that i may take 1 a day or 8 a day, that is the one that ruins my memory, so lately only taken before sleep, since 30 minutes after taken it , i will forget, and have done things like put the bottle in different places or turned it upside down, but doesn't help wherein i am out. Needless to say mu cognitive mind is very bad. i have plenty of leather and different beads so i have the supplies. i cant figure out how to do it, and since i have million things to do, 2 years behind schedule with a lot of medical procedures that take hours to do. plus need to figure out how to modify equipment so it works better for me. I cant focus on how to make this simple Aztec/Inca counter . I know it is simple, which kills me to ask, but i hate waking up dead. Which has almost happened too many times., i have to get ready for doctors so excuse any grammar errors please. thanks in advance , i lose my pens and papers all the time so that method became unreliable. i figure beads that i can snap on my belt loop would be the best fix.. A bead counter for one strand and i should be able to figure out the rest. i hope

A complete roleplaying game in one post

I can't post this as an Instructable, because it's not my game at all.  It surfaced in the sorting out of my lab as my school closed. My original copy of the game was a page in Games and Puzzles magazine, but this is my own re-type of it, which I had to re-type again because the first digital copy was lost during one PC upgrade or another. The document gives me permission to pass it on (even though it pre-dates the Creative Commons movement), but I have emailed the author to let him know I'm posting it anyway.  I've not had a reply, but the page I found his address on had not been updated since 2009. UPDATE: Frank has been in touch, is happy for the game to be published like this, and is even going to send me copies of v2 if he ever finds them. FURTHER UPDATE: Frank has sent me a scan of the v2 rules, which I have added as the first image below. I thought older members might like to be reminded of their youth, and younger members sometimes need reminding that roleplaying games didn't always need a computer with a high-speed internet connection Here is the text, and I have attached a tidier-looking PDF of the same text: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- S.I.M.P.L.E. by Frank Carver Shared Imagination Multi Player Leisure Experience Have you ever been sitting around with a few friends and wanted to play a game – but hadn’t brought the rule books, supplements, charts & tables, character sheets, funny dice, metal figures etc? Here is the answer: a game simple enough to fit on one sheet of paper, and easy enough to remember & explain, even if you haven’t got that! ABOUT SIMPLE SIMPLE is a roleplaying game (RPG), in which each player controls the actions of a single character in an adventure. An adventure takes place in an imaginary world, which may be very different from the real world. Sometimes it’s outer space, the far future, wild west or fantasy. The background from any book, film, TV show may be used, or one from your own imagination. The adventure is usually organised by one player acting as Game Master (GM), who knows about the setting and provides things for the characters to do – problems to solve, enemies to defeat, victims to be rescued, riches to be gained ... anything the other players might enjoy. Problems are solved by thinking them through, talking to the other players and the GM, and rolling dice to see if your plan works. Details of each character are recorded on a character sheet, which develops from game to game. Travel the Universe without ever leaving your chair! TO PLAY You need at least two players (more than 5 or 6 is hard work), a copy of this sheet, at least one normal 6-sided die, a pen or pencil (an eraser is handy), some paper to write on and your imagination. THE SIMPLE CHARACTER Each SIMPLE character is described by three things – Body, Mind and Abilities. Body is a single number showing how strong and tough the character is. Mind is also a number, showing how clever and aware the character is. Abilities are things the character is good at. Each Ability has a description, and a number which shows how much better than average the character is. If your character is just average at something, it doesn’t go on their Ability list. Each character starts with 10 character points, which may be put into Body, Mind and Ability. For each point put into Body or Mind, the number goes up by one. For each half point put into Ability, the number goes up by one. Abilities may be anything that suits the setting. The GM and other players must agree with them. For example: running, science, driving, casting spells, seeing in the dark... EXAMPLE CHARACTER SHEET Name: Gus Goodguy Player: Frank Body: 5 Mind: 3 Abilities: Gunfight 2, ride horse 1, drink whisky 1 Description: A gunfighter in the Old West. Rides tall in the saddle, tips his white 10-gallon hat to ladies, calls men “Pardner”, travels the dusty plains looking for bandits to catch or farmers to rescue. Likes his whisky, and wil never resist a call to a shoot-out. USING THE NUMBERS IN AN ADVENTURE To see if a character succeeds at a task, the GM decides on the difficulty (5=easy, 8=average, 11=hard, 14=very hard and so on) and whether it is a physical (Body) task or a mental (Mind) task. The player then rolls a die and adds the character’s Body or Mind and any matching Abilities. A 6 means roll again and add the result. If the player’s total is better than the GM’s target, then the character has succeeded. The difference between the two numbers gives how well it was done. Gus Goodguy has Body 5 and Gunfight 2. To shoot Bill Badguy is an average (8) Body task. Gus rolls a 3, plus his body of 5, plus his gunfighting 2, making a total of 10 – succeeded by 2! Bill has been shot, and until his wound is treated his body is reduced by 1 point. If his Body falls to 1 he is unconscious, if it reaches 0 he is dead! At the end of a game, the GM may award up to one point to good players to spend on their characters. DOING EVERYTHING ELSE Most problems should be decided by the GM and common sense. Some useful hints, though: when time is important, like in a fight, do things in one-second rounds, with the character with the highest Body going first. A character can run Body (plus running Ability) metres per second. An “average” person has 4 Body and 4 MNind with no extra Abilities. If you need some enemies in a hurry, roll some dice onto the table – use the numbers on top as their Body score, and turn the die down one when they are injured. If you like this game, please copy it, give it to your friends, take it to conventions etc If you like it a lot, why not write to Frank Carver at: The Albion Guard Games Club, 62 Tomline Road, Ipswich, IP3 8DB, United Kingdom.
