Which crazy worlds?

Which crazy worlds?

Postby Icefield » Tue Aug 16, 2016 10:43 pm

What are some of the settings that you have used RQ6/Mythras to run players through? I imagine between the posters here (and maybe Pete and Loz) there has to be some pretty varied stuff.

I am a noob with the system so I have only used it for High Fantasy Homebrew campaigns, but I am curious about my fellow Mythrans(?).

I've used it for Lankhmar games and a variety of short (6-8 session) Sword and Sorcery games.

I have used RQ6 for:

Back in Legend days I played Deus Vult and had an Eberron conversion. If I ever get the time and drive, I might update it for Classic Fantasy - albeit much of the conversion work will be redundant now.

I have run numerous games in a wide variety of settings. Julian May's Many Coloured Land, Conan's Hyborian Age, Arakis of Dune fame, a week-long 007 Bond adventure I ran in Cuba (seemed fitting), a hard sci-fi Space Marines campaign which the players just finished on Monday, the lands of Prydain (which was the in-house play-testing campaign), Monster Island of course being my own personal S&S setting, and Loz's favourite - an occasional Special Circumstances game set in Banks' Culture.

In addition I've also run a few historical one-offs set during the British Raj and 1920's Egypt. But I am rather eclectic in my tastes.

I've done a Hyborian age game and am starting a Greyhawk one here on Friday. I can see a Star Wars one in my future as well

At the moment I am working on two campaigns which use the Mythras rules. Bhotana is an alternate history / pulp campaign about a version of Bhutan in the 1920s and Thalassa is a science fiction campaign about the development of a remote water world colony.

Simple homebrew campaign that to me is Low Fantasy (but I suspect others might say it has some slight flavors of High Fantasy)

I like to use worlds from video games and commercial setting packs sometimes, but usually I make my own from history and from prophecy.

To professional historians and professional theologians the real history and prophecy usually sounds crazy, in my opinion.

My active campaign is set in early fifteenth century Bohemia and environs. The church has martyred Jan Huss and the Hussites are preparing war wagon and blunderbuss tactics to resist the inevitable crusade against their religious freedom.

The following link has more background on the setting.
