House Hunting - the PBTA

Post by Blake Ryan Batman »

House Hunting (PBTA)

Player decides how many rooms they need for :
- Bed rooms >3 =-1 to Finding.
- Entertainment (lounge, rumpus, gaming) >2 =-1 to Decorating.
- Function (WC, Bathroom, Kitchen) >3 =-1 to Renovating.

In the Country : +1 to Finding roll, -1 to Renovation.
Suburbs : Standard, as is.
Downtown : -1 to Finding roll, +1 to Decorating.

Finding the home 2d8.
15+ = You find a house with the right amount of rooms, +1 to Renovating roll.
12-14 = You find a house with 1 less room that you need.
7-11 = You find a house with 2 less rooms.
-1 Renovating roll if you still want the rooms.
4-6 = Place is old and needs repairs. -1 to Renovating roll.
3- = Your bank account was hacked and your car stolen.
You now share a room with a friend who smells of socks.

Renovating the home 2d8
15+ = You renovate all the rooms just the way you want them.
12-14 = You renovate all the rooms but are delayed by supplies for 1 month.
7-11 = You renovate all but 2 of the rooms.
-1 to Decorating roll if you still renovate all of them.
4-6 = You renovate half the rooms but are delayed by supplies for 2 months.
3- = You renovate one room. It looks just dandy.

Decorating the home 2d8
15+ = Every room is a master piece of style and decor.
12-14 = The house rooms are nice, but the yard is eclectic.
7-11 = Half the rooms are nice, half the rooms are not bad.
4-6 = Raccoons on pixie dust decorated, it certainly is colorful. Everywhere.
3- = Everything is a mess. You now share your home with a cousin who talks like The Nanny.

So this is a solo rpg where you’re just going through the stages of finding a house using random die rolls?

I just want to be sure I understand the intent of the game.
