Looking for something more "normal"
« on: January 02, 2007, 05:31:35 PM »
I'm looking for a game on the light and normal side.  I'm not into the heavy and exotic perse so I'd like a game that more suits my tastes.

Sample ideas:
1) Anime themed (I've got several animes that I like to rp in, just ask if you're interested).

2) Feudal Oriental (China or Japan) = a feudal lord with samurai (male and female) and assorted underlings.  I'd like to play a samurai with a submissive and extremely horny wife.

3) Library = a couple of strangers snowed into a library after hours who have to find ways to keep warm and entertain themselves.

Actually, number two has a strong potential to be a group game.

Number three sounds interesting.

If you want a game system for an orietnal setting, I'd heartily recommend the 3rd ed Legend of the Five Rings one. I'm running a campaign on that, and its a very good system. A lot of fun too.

I made an awesome character for the original L5R system.  I've never seen the D20 version.

3rd ed went back to d10, thankfully. It took the few good elements from 2nd ed, added them to the best from 1st. I've played all 3, and 3rd ed is, IMO, far and away the best.

I'm running the 1st ed City of Lies camapaign, originally with 1st ed rules, then we migrated to 3rd ed when that came out.

Any chance of seeing a mid level (edit: 6-7) d20 star wars or d20 modern game?

I could be interested in Star Wars, depending on the setting, and whether or not we end up with half the jedi in the known galaxies running around with us  ;D

My last campaign, half the party were jedi or force users of some kind (playing around the Empire Strikes Back era), which was a bit much IMO.

If I was running Star Wars, it'd probably (more than likely) be in the KOTOR (old republic) time period as I found a supplement for it.

Hmm. I've absolutely no familiarity with that time period, so might be better to sit that one out.

I thought KOTOR was set centuries prior to the films?

Yes, it's set five centuries before the movies.  The suppliment that I found is only 8.14 megs for the interested.

Sith Wars and Mandalorean Mercs (Knights? whatever they were called) still running around? I remember some Dark Horse comics which I *think* fall into that era.

And there you go.   Anyone else interested?  I'll run with three players or more.

edit: Please advise as to whether you'd prefer Sith or Republic and what type of campaign interests you (mercenary, merchant trader, etc).

Well, Sith would be cool, especially a machiavellian one.  I mean it's fun running around killing the helpless but it's so much more fun manipulating others into doing it for you.

Sorry, got distracted by other things there :)

I'm tentatively interested, but I don't have the Star Wars books, and don't really know the time period that well. Now, if those aren't overwhelming drawbacks, then I'm still around.

I'm still looking for anime themed games.
