Hey guys, thanks to the feedback from the last article I’ve had some time to try putting together a few ideas of campaigns I could run. Unfortunately it’s still quite a list but I figure that writing it down somewhere can’t hurt. I’ll apologize ahead of time that these aren’t completely fleshed out ideas as they’re mostly raw notes scribbled down during brainstorming:
- Scion: HERO – Scion has always been a great setting, but the Exalted-esque rules leave me cold. I’ve been thinking of ripping the premise and slapping it onto the HERO 6th Edition Ruleset to give players more freedom as to what they want to do with it.
- XCONS Reboot – Rvelasco had a good premise for a sci-fi campaign of death row convicts thrown into a ship and sent into dangerous territories of known space on special missions but the game didn’t pan out. I was wondering if I could pick it up and run it.
- Hong Kong Supers – Haven’t thought this one out completely, but was thinking of a supers game revolving around a superteam in Hong Kong, dealing with Asian culture, mysticism and ideas.
- nMage Manila – Take nMage and slap it into Manila. Third world country with back-stabby politics and a powerful Spirit Court? It runs the risk of being an nMage Japan retread, but it might have merit.
- Heavy Gear – No idea how feasible this is, but stompy mechs in the badlands sounds strangely appealing.
- Bleeding Edge Cyberpunk – nWoD’s Bleeding Edge cyberpunk Shard has always been interesting to me, and nobody’s run Cyberpunk before so it might be interesting. The Challenge? World Building.
- Fading Suns – Space Opera at it’s finest. No premise yet but it’s something that shouldn’t take too much brain power.
- RuneQuest – Going through it now as a Let’s Study, and might be interesting for a heroic Sword & Sorcery game.
- Qin: the Warring States – I’ve already got a campaign premise ready for this, but I didn’t end up running it before. Maybe now is a more auspicious time?
Huh, that’s a lot more games in my head than I realized. At least I’ve got them down in a list. Any particular ones you guys want to hear more about?
