So the Thanksgiving game happened. It was a WWII commando raid using a Mini Six/D6 Adventure mashup and it was a blast. But I’m not here to talk about it. Not right now, anyway. I’m gunning to do that a little later on, when I’m ready to post the materials I put together for the game. Nope, instead I’m here to talk about what I’m hoping to run next.
First up, sometime during the Winter Solstice Holidays break, I’m hoping to pull off a BASH game for a friend, his 13 year old son, and maybe a few other folks. I’m currently thinking Golden Age/WWII supers kicking fascist ass in Europe. But the ideas are swirling and unformed at this point, so who knows what (if anything) will ultimately come to pass?
After that, I’m pondering a few possibilities:
- Some kind of hard(-ish) SciFi using good ol’ Classic Traveller and some Stars Without Number action
- Labyrinth Lord/AEC romps through either the Against The Giants series or maybe Castle Amber, The Lost City, or some other classic modules
- A BRP– (or possibly BoL-) based, Mythic Russia-fueled, Russian fantasy game
- A Mini Six (with add-ons from Open D6) or Mercenaries, Spies, And Private Eyes 80s-style espionage game
- A Call of Cthulhu Dreamlands miniseries (probably not until the CoC game I’m playing in wraps up, though)
- A BRP/Renaissance (or maybe Tunnels & Trolls or Honor + Intrigue) black powder fantasy adventure
- Droids. Seriously. Either with the original rules (unlikely) or with something else (D6, maybe?)
just to name a few (in no particular order). All of this is subject to change (i.e., my whims and interests) and player buy-in, of course.
That’s Great And All, But What About Giving Us Some Sweet Gaming Content, Pao?
Yeah, I know. My content output has absolutely tanked of late (and, honestly, not-so-late). I’m struggling with that, really. Part of me wants to be cranking out stuff like I had been, but another part just isn’t inclined to spend the time on it. So it’s not quite burnout, per se. It’s more a case of conflicting interests and such. So to answer the question that I asked on no one in particular’s behalf, “Reply hazy. Try again later.”
