Re: Game Ideas?
Given that I wrote part of the campaign world book (Mexico and Canada entries) for World of the Dead, I'd LOVE to be a player in such a game!

Re: Game Ideas?
I've been playing Shadowrun: Dragonfall and it makes me miss cyberpunk games.  Has anyone tried Interface Zero?  Thoughts on it?

Re: Game Ideas?

I have not, but I know Triple Ace Games has a set of free cyberpunk rules for SW that are pretty great.  Netrunning and everything.

Re: Game Ideas?
Reiterating the two game ideas I want to play to try out SW (same as I posted on the HERO board):

The Last of Us (Heroic): A game in the setting of The Last of Us. Grim, gritty, survival (and survival horror) in a post-apocalyptic world devastated by the Cordyceps outbreak. It could be a very similar setting with actual undead zombies (and zombie animals!), but I think TLoU would work fine. Survival, maybe a reason to travel across the wastelands from one safe zone to another. Maybe one safe zone falls, and we have to escape and find somewhere else.

Mass Effect (Superheroic): I'd looooove to play around in the Mass Effect setting, as a biotic specialist and following the Reaper War (with some slight modifications to canon; let us assume that only the Reapers, not all AI, were wiped out, yeah?). Lots of plot hooks in the wake of a galactic war. I'd like to base it on my own playthrough, where I went Paragon and stuff, more details to come if the game ever happens.

Any interest?

Had a friend who was SUPER interested in playing a Mass Effect game and asked me to help build it ... I used the NE/ Supers Companion rules to build things ... definitely interested though I know 0 about the universe :D

Re: Game Ideas?
I would have jumped on that Mass Effect game a year ago when I just finished ME3. Ran a one-shot IRL using Stars Without Number. Looking back in hindsight, Savage Worlds NE/Super Powers Companion would have nailed it. Can't remember why I used SWN instead...

Probably because it was free and your player party was broke?

Re: Game Ideas?
I can't have much to do with it due to time constraints, but I've been really intrigued with Achtung!  WWII and Cthulhu (H.P. Lovecraft) done with Savage mechanics is a damn interesting mix to me.  So, just thought I'd pass the idea along.

Edit:

Samus, look into World of the Dead.  It could very easily be tailored to fit Last of Us.

EDIT 2: Derp.  I see now that you have already looked into it.  I stand by my suggestion though.  Mixing WotD and maybe Broken Earth, picking and choosing what you want to use for a house-rule conglomeration and all that?  That'd make an exceptional combination for a Last of Us based game.

For zombie animals, see "Savage Tales #6: Zombie Run".  It's got templates, premade dogs, and a zombie bear.  Let those last two words sink in...  Needless to say, I refused to ever let my players face off with a zombie bear.  Even for me that's overkill.  They'd have been ripped to shreds, since (if I remember) it still had the pace of a normal bear and I doubt they'd have managed to outrun it for long.

The hard part isn't finding the right game materials. It's finding someone to run the game.

I have thrown a zombie elephant at my players before. They managed to kill it, but it took a lot of work. And luck.

Game Idea: Superheroes
I Picked up the new Super Powers Companion and the Sci Fi Companion, and it's gotten my wheels turning. I'm thinking of running a supers game once my current RL issues have cleared up enough that I can post regularly again. Is there any interest out there in an iron Age Cyberpunk Supernatural Horror Supers game?

There are a lot of adjectives in that game description.

Re: Game Idea: Superheroes
LOL. I suppose there are, but at's the best way I can describe the sort of setting that I've developed for Super Hero games.

IT's the sort of setting where one week the party is caught in the middle of a metahuman gang war, the next they're facing an invasion from the Realm of Nightmares and fighting vampires, and in another they're dealing with a meglomaniacal AI while a shady mega-corp tries to take them down.

Isn't this one of the possible ways to describe Exalted?

If you take into account some of the less common types of Exalted (Alchemicals), you have almost everything you mentioned. It just depends on the tone.

Re: Game Idea: Superheroes
Never played Exalted so I wouldn't know. I think the closest I got was Scion, which I think took some elements of exalted in it. I have a PDF of the rules somewhere, but really couldn't get into it. The setting I run is more like Aberrant or Brave New World meets the old World of Darkness, with a dash of Shadowrun layered on top.

Re: Game Idea: Superheroes
Exalted is just EPIC FANTASY. So as long as you have Fantasy elements and everything on EPIC scale you are good.

On Topic, I like The Stray's idea and would like to give it a go as a player.

I struggled for years trying to adapt Exalted with Savage Worlds rules. Unfortunately, the setting is too rules-heavy. I finally managed when I realized that Exalted powers are supers-like, so I just went with Supers-Fantasy and got it right.

So Epic Fantasy is just one way to look at it. :)

Re: Game Idea: Horror
With it being Halloween I am looking at starting my first Savage Worlds game. I am interested in running a Horror Game, so I figured I would check in here and see if anyone would be interested in this ?

It would be a group of people gathered together with a common trait of having seen something "supernatural" experienced something supernatural.

Re: Game Idea: Horror [Bloodshadows]
Not sure if this would be the place to ask or not, but has anyone run across a Savage Worlds variant of "Bloodshadows" from WEG/PI?  I've always loved the setting and it screams to be savaged, but I'm not finding where anyone has put anything out in this vein.  Seems like it would be a good Halloween run!  ^_^
