IC: Inspired Witcher RPG using Savage World (SWADE)
Things that most inspire me to play the game:

  • Alchemy
  • Mutations (similar to Rippers rules)
  • Runic Magic
  • Hunted Mages
  • Racism against non-human races
  • Political intrigue
  • Monsters that are more of a threat than coin purses for the heroes

The idea is that it's a fairly non-typical. I want to have high fantasy but I want it to have more of a horror element that makes it different. Monsters aren't something to be slaughtered but things that are challenging to the players.

I also want to have more social encounters which include things like social challenges which specifically force hard decisions.

I want magic to be more than casting spells and using points. I want there to be magic systems that are less about the person being a mage and more about how they use the magic. In essence their would be three levels of magic. Low - Alchemy, Strong - Runic, and True - Full-Blooded.

Would anyone be interested in something like this?

I would expect characters such as pirates, privateers, bounty hunters, monster-hunters, knights, paladins, etc.

What say you?

I would definitely be interested in this! I really like Savage Worlds, and I've just played through the Witcher games recently. This sounds like fun!
