Beyond The Blue Horizon
I have a few more posts to complete before I am done with the basics of my Smurfs RPG and as such I am looking toward the future and my next project.
I don't think I am going to do another new pop culture RPG just yet, preferring to do those only when inspiration strikes me. I do want to have a theme or focus for September however.
Among the idea perculating in my noggin' are:
A more deeply dedicated and devoted divulengce on how I dare depict Superheroes. Now I know I'm spoken about Supers gaming before quite a bit but I don't think I really said all I want to say on the matter, especially in regards to how I pull it off.
Related to this is the fact that I would like to find the time to run a Skype game, most likely using M&M 3E. I think it would be fun to develop a campaign, blog about it here and run it online at the same time. We'll see.
I have recently been reading a number of posts on various sites that make me long to run my D&D-But-Not game again. Take that any way you like as no matter what you're thinking you're probably right.
I've never really concentrated a good deal of effort or time in talking about my D&D on this blog and I think it might be high time I got into the fray as it were. Of course, I may be committing blog suicide by doing so. Those in the blogosphere interested in D&D (a) probably don't come hear a lot and (b) probably wouldn't accept or utilize many of my approaches. Likewise, those who do come here regularly (yes, you five, I see you there. Timmy take off your hat it's disrespectful) do so because I am a little off beat from the OSR.
I can see it now...
"I went to Barking Alien's blog and he's talking about D&D this month."
"D&D! The heck you say!"
"No it's true! What will we do now? Who's going to suggest ideas for Victorian Era Steampunk Sentai or give us a Sid & Marty Kroft RPG?*"
Well it's just an idea gang, I haven't decided what I'm going to do yet.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated (that means comment!)**
Anyway, you haven't seen the last of the Smurfs (or the Muppets for that matter). I still intend to run the Smurfs RPG as an ongoing, 1 session a month campaign at the Compleat Strategist in NY on third Saturdays.
I will be running a session of the Smurfs RPG and the Muppets RPG at the next NerdNYC RECESS event on October 8th.
I now return you my regularly scheduled Smurfs post. You may also opt to check out any one of a hundred OSR blogs who are most likely talking about initiative, character classes, weapon damage and hit points or some rule no one uses.***
*Yes, a Sid & Marty Kroft RPG. Sigmund and The Sea Monsters, H.R. PufnStuf, Lost Saucer, Far Out Space Nuts, The Bugaloos, the ridiculously hot Electra Woman and Dyna Girl...don't think I haven't thought about it.
**Once again I know my site is doing well since comments are way down. Checking my blog stats to test my hypothesis...yep, high page views. Awesome.
***A playful jab. All in good fun.
