Bring back Broncosaurus Rex

Post by Hedgehobbit » Wed Dec 08, 2004 7:20 pm

This suggestion is more like a faint lost hope. I'd like to see a revised version of Broncosaurus Rex. You guys know the d20 rules way better now and I think the setting could use a kick in the rear. Plus, there's tons of OGL stuff around to pull from in addition to the stuff that you guys produced.

Yeah, I've been thinking about this myself a little, too. The comic should become a reality around the middle of next year, and I plan to include game material with the comic (mostly short adventures). That might lead to something... who knows? :)

Yeah, I'd like to see a d20 Modern/Future rendition of it aside from my own homemade compilation and reworking.

Not only would I like to see a comeback of the original material, perhaps updated a bit. But it would be nice to see some new material dealing with creatures from the Age of Mammals.

I've run enough material with dinos that my players are getting a bit tired of it. Throwing them onto a new part of the planet where they have to deal with mammoths, sabertooths, giant elk, and other such creatures would give all of us a big boost.

A conversion to the D20 Modern rules wouldn't be a bad idea. Neither would the addition of prehistoric mammals, Titanotheres, Glyptodons, and Thylacines...oh MY! So...basically what the other posters said.

Hm, the last post is waaay back now. Did anything new come up concerning BRONCOSAURUS REX? I do love the setting and think that it would lend itself incredible well to flesh out into a full-blown D20-Future universe, or something like that. Heck, I would just as well love to see the setting reborn with a different rules system!
Ever since "DINOSAURS THAT NEVER WERE" out of print (it's the only supplement I am missing) I hoped that BRONCO would return one day... like a little triceratops baby dino japping outside my door... *sniff*
Btw: what about the comic? Did I miss it?

Guys - and especially Mr. Jo Goodman - this is just too cool and unusual a setting to just let it slip away... :cry:

Done so far:
DCC#1, DCC #11, DCC #28, DCC #17, DCC #17.5 :)

I have to agree there. I've always loved BR!

Just curious: If BR made a comeback, would you want it 4e? True20? Modern d20 (not sure if there will be a 4e Modern upgrade)?

my pref

Post by tadk » Mon Aug 27, 2007 6:10 pm

my pref would be to make it a lot like Etherscope
Port over the 6 classes
add a few more in
some more setting stuff
make it more Modern rules wise
and run with it so people like me can port stuff from one to the other

my 2 pennies
Over 30 years spent gaming, all sorts of systems, feel free to ask me anything, no guarantees I will have an answer.

Hadn't thought of that, but that's a good point. Also begs as to whether Etherscope will be ported to 4e...

If i had known of Broncosaurus Rex ten years ago i would've never stopped playing rpg's im 20 yrs old now and have just started rpg'ing with this game. It's really good and i enjoy all the escapades i've been on even if i don't always get what i want. But that's life, and now i want to see how my life would differ if there were more supplements created for DPBR. I hope more people come to realize that just because dinosaurs don't breathe fire or have lvl 20 spells or whatever, they can still be a lot of fun. Please bring back DPBR.

Thinking on this now, I think Savage Worlds would make a good system for this. I would like to see a comeback.

Savage Worlds would definitely be a great choice for Broncosaurus Rex.

I also wouldn't mind seeing the FATE rules for this either. Spirit of the Century is an awesome game that uses FATE, and I think Broncosaurus Rex would fit right into that system as well.

Wait there was going to be a comic? Did it ever come out?

If it happens it will clearly involve necromantic magic!
