Like most COVID practically wiped out any chance to game. This year I’ve got to get something happening. I doubt in person gaming will happen and I’m still looking at various online platforms and haven’t decided on any of those yet. But first I want to talk about the ideas bouncing around inside my head on what to run.
White Box: Because everybody loves fantasy and White Box is rules light and easy. But then I might throw in stuff from my own Forgotten Tales of Sword & Sorcery.
Call of Cthulhu: Yeah, I know that sounds kind of odd but I have been really wanting to run CofC again. I’ve got a couple of ideas for this. On the game mechanics side, I’m more partial to the old editions of CofC and the current edition of Delta Green. So I’d probably do a crazy house ruled hybrid. I’m just that kind of guy. For setting/campaign, I’ve got two ideas.
But then if I want to keep with the White Box theme, I could go with Eldritch Tales.
Old West/Down Darker Trails: I’ve been listening to Ain’t Slayed Nobody and have been enjoying it. It seems like a perfectly natural fit and just outside the standard. And there’s some pretty good inspiration out there like Bone Tomahawk.
Oh wait there’s more. Like The Burrowers.
And Dead Birds. Yes, I know there are many more like Ravenous but these jumped right out at me.
Of course, since I mentioned Delta Green that also means that a more modern game is on my mind too. And if you know me one little bit then here’s a double feature crossover bit of inspiration.
Now, I also stumbled onto Highway of Blood for 7E CofC for adding even more grind house creepy to it.
Who knows? Maybe this is just wishful thinking on my part. But we shall see.
