I keep coming back to Pulka! more and more⁠—it really seems like the perfect hack for onboarding players new to ttrpgs! It has access to that huge breadth of Troika! fluff and supplements⁠—perfect for hooking new players⁠—but it does some fun and smart stuff with Troika!'s opaque rules. Anyway, love this, and I'm inspired to use it for exactly that purpose. Question: what use license does Pulka! have, in particular regarding hacking it (like, a Powered by Pulka! kinda thing)?


I’ve never given it thought haha but CC-BY-4.0 would do the trick I think! I’ll update it at some point to add that. I provided Sage a little logo for Discordantopia and would happily upload same here for anyone to use.

That's great, thanks Oz! The creative gears in my head are already turning 🙌


And thanks for the kind words! It was written very much with that prospect, introduction of new players, in mind.

So when the rules say roll for a background, that means in another list from another game? (Like, say, in the Troika! book?) Just making sure I'm not missing something obvious!

Yeah, Pulka! assumes you’re running Troika!, be that just the main book, or alongside one of the numerous other ‘spheres’.

BUT the way it’s written all you need is a character background and skills with numbers on them. So you can run it ‘as is’ pretty easily.

Nice! Thanks for answering my question!
