    Can I use the system to create my own game?

    Hi

    Let's say I want to use the storytelling system as base for my own system. Will I be able to do that if I buy the Vampire Ruleset?
    I've been wanting to create something not related to Vampire or the World of Darkness at all, but I want to use the same system. I don't need everything to be automated for this, but I do need the character sheets, combat tracker and the basic mechanics.
    So how hard would it be to tailor it for my mutants campaign as example. What should I be looking into to do that?

    Thanks.

    The ruleset is encrypted so you wont have access to the codebase.

    As damned has pointed out that this ruleset's codebase is encrypted and is not able to be seen. However, you can check out CoreRPG, 3.5E, and 5E and branch off of those rulesets. There is also MoreCore you can create an extension for your system as well. So there are options, this one unfortunately is not available.

    Ok, I will see if I can find another way. Shame though, because of how simple it is, I grew up playing all kinds of games using Storytelling. Mutants, Science Fiction, Dragon Ball, Matrix, everything we liked we would play it within the system.

    Thanks.

    You could still use and adapt the older code base for oWOD rulesets like VtM.

    I am not sure I follow. I don't see a WOD system available. As far as I understand I would need the core ruleset and work from there, right?
    The only Storytelling System I see is the Vampire 5e. I could use The Vampire UI as long as I could change the disciplines names, backgrounds names and so on. But as I understood that's not also a possibility.

    Look aound on the forum, there was a MoreCore character sheet by viresanimi and the dice rolls are available.
    There is also the Wiki proposing community developped rulesets https://www.fantasygrounds.com/wiki/...rade_.28V20.29.
    There are also spinoffs of the ruleset available on the forum.
    They work under FG, not FGU, so if working with FGU you will need to use them as base an adapt them.
    I am sure many people will be happy to have an adaptation to FGU.

    You can play and customise character sheets for WoD games on MoreCore.

    You can absolutely add your own Disciplines, Powers, Backgrounds, and whatnot. The big thing is that this rule set uses the new V5 dice system. If your game will be using a different dice system, then I would recommend using MoreCore instead.
