13th Warrior
« on: March 08, 2009, 01:32:35 PM »
So...

How about a game based loosely on the story of the movie/book. A small kingdom in the north is being attacked by those who are not named, monsters who have the shapes of some kind of combination of men and bears.

A group of warriors, male and female (don't want to leave anyone out!) set out to the north to confront this horror and save the kingdom.

Uhm... so would anyone be interested in something like this? I prefer if someone else ran it, but I guess if nobody else was willing I could give it a shot.

Sounds cool, me and Goldie would love to play.  As a side note we just watched the movie again the other day....  One of my favorite movies.

Did you want this to be a system game or the like, or just a free form?  I've received multiple requests to run some group oriented game....

Well if it's a system thingy, all I know is GURPS, so if you wanted to do something with a system, I'd either need lots of help or to use that.

But I'm cool with either, so long as theres no super-powered nordic god type who makes the rest of us redundant in a freeform style game. :)

Pllleeeaaaaaaaasse, don't be so insulting.  >:)  Would I do that? 

no, seriously, I could probably manage anything you'd like.  I'll need more details on how you'd like it run, as in what level of sexual activity, gritty with some humor, raw violence with quiet spots of bright hope, etc.  Tell me more, I give you more back.

Hrm, well I was thinking something kind of gritty and dark. Almost like a fantasy style horror game - except no magic & faeries and crap. Well, no magic we know of anyway. I mean if the fire wyrm is actually a dragon... ;)

As far as sexual activity, well I'm fine with whatever there. I don't think that should be the main focus of the game but, you know it happens!

But dark, violent, with small glimmers of hope. I like the sound of that!

All right.  I'll run it; shall I make a new post about it, or shall we recruit from this thread?

I see SinXAzgard is interested in playign as well as 'Goldie'.  Adan, I'm sure, will want to be part of it.  most likely a few others.

Well Mne, maybe a new thread where you can compose your thoughs better than my half-assed attempt to do so?

I trow I hung on that windy Tree
nine whole days and nights,
stabbed with a spear, offered to Odin,
myself to mine own self given,
high on that Tree of which none hath heard
from what roots it rises to heaven.

None refreshed me ever with food or drink,
I peered right down in the deep;
crying aloud I lifted the Runes
then back I fell from thence.

Nine mighty songs I learned from the great
son of Bale-thorn, Bestla's sire;
I drank a measure of the wondrous Mead,
with the Soulstirrer's drops I was showered.

Ere long I bare fruit, and throve full well,
I grew and waxed in wisdom;
word following word, I found me words,
deed following deed, I wrought deeds.

Hidden Runes shalt thou seek and interpreted signs,
many symbols of might and power,
by the great Singer painted, by the high Powers fashioned,
graved by the Utterer of gods.


No magic, ye say?

Well if you do use GURPS, me and Goldie are lost.  I've never used that system, I do have a few E books for Modern d20 and D&D but that is all.
