My inner swashbuckler is acting up, again, bouncing around like a grinning monkey, swinging from the chandeliers, and generally behaving like D'Artagnan's tomboyish kid sister. So with that in mind, I present the following proposed dial settings for a PDQ# game:
Thumbnail: Several years ago, a certain Barathian noble house staged a hostile takeover of a minor sky-island. While they were able to imprison (and later murder) most of the royal family, some retainers and most importantly the heir-apparent managed to escape to safety. Sheltering in a new base of operations in the Sky of Stones, the survivors settled in to lick their wounds and retrench with an eye to reclaiming their homeland someday...
Underlying Aesthetic: Highwayman! (Chaos in defense of Order)
Themes: Action! Adventure! Romance! Intrigue! Comedy!
Justify Why PCs are Together: Sovereign's Troubleshooters
Just another weapon: pistols and muskets do damage as normal.
Gifted or koldun PCs need to make a mystical Challenge roll on occasion, when the situation warrants
Mystical Challenge are TNs relatively standard.
Harms, Weakens, Incapacitates, and Endures
Team Sanctum or Team Vehicle?
Is the GM giving the play group a free Team Sanctum or Team Vehicle? Both!
The core rules are available for free here: http://www.atomicsockmonkey.com/freebies/PDQ.pdf
