Description Edit | History

From Introduction:

This is a conversion of d20 Modern, allowing play in the universe of Frank Herbert's Dune.

This RULBUK details tumultuous years before the ascendance of Paul Muad dib, in the last flowering of the neo-feudal Imperium. It chronicles the dramatic end to the Imperium s most ancient Kanly; betwixt the Ginaz and the Moritani. The player characters, henceforth the entourage, form the core members of House Minor Charteriis, loyal to the Moritani, and heirs to a stunning legacy of the Butlerian Jihad.

The campaign is entitled War of Assassins.

More Information Edit | History

EDIT 2nd Edition released 2017 - after 10 years of playtesting!

The DUNE RULBUK arose from my desire to run a campaign in Frank Herbert's Known Universe. A game spanning the Imperium which happens to contain Arrakis, Dune, but not focused on that planet. I was entranced by the visual language of the David Lynch Movie, and the flavour text of Last Unicorn Games "Chronicles of the Imperium - ICON" Game System.

After an initial session (in the Summer of 2003) with the Last Unicorn Games System it was immediately obvious that the flavour text was wonderful but that the crunch, the rules, were unwieldy.

Our gaming group in Edinburgh had played many systems, but of the greatest familiarity, were the many incarnations if TSR/WotC's D20.

Frank Herbert's series examines individuals at the extremis of capabilities. In D20 these capabilities are represented as the classic STRENGTH, INTELLIGENCE & CHARISMATIC et cetera. D20 Modern takes is a step further making the classes STRONG, SMART and CHARISMATIC refer directly to these capabilities. So starting with a archetype of dashing SWORDMASTER, you could choose to multi-class with STRONG and CHARISMATIC.

From the Character Generation intro...
"Your character is a noted servant or member of a House Minor, who in turn offer fealty to one of the Great Houses of the Landsraad. You are a trained Sword Master, haughty Noble, enigmatic Bene Gesserit or predatory Assassin as described in the DUNE EXEMPLARS below, already accredited to serve in that capacity. You will then use the Tough, Fast, Determined Archetype classes to explore that character idea. You are Dune characters from the very start. "

Several other collaborators on the WotC D20 forums helped in the discussion, but the game was primarily honed through play.

Thanks to Frank Herbert for countless hours in another world.

Adapted from D20 Modern by Dagmar Scott Fraser (artaxerxes), with inspiration and help from
http://forums.gleemax.com/showthread.php?t=225679&page=26&highlight=rulbuk

Inspired by Last Unicorn Game’s DUNE and the visualisation of David Lynch.

Thanks to the DUNE Mush; http://www.dune3.net/ for supporting material.

Thanks also to my players, for bringing a dream of the Imperium to life;
Alexandre, Annaric, Bellios, Nexiis, Raphaen, Viktor & Vrashenko of House Charteriis.

The campaign flourished and ran until 2011 with high regularity. Now we await a chance to play the campaign finale!
