One of my local clubs is losing a GM for some time (joining the army), and a few of his old players in various sessions asked if I could run something.

Below are the rough outlines I presented on the forum.

Quote:
I was asked if I could run something in the mornings, and I agreed. Confused

Still trying to work out why... Razz

At any rate, I would be willing to run three games at the moment.

Fading Suns, Spycraft or W.O.D.

The Fading Suns would be more of a supernatural investigation to begin with, leading into the published story arc (so no reading the War books!). Less for why the stars are fading, and more for why Pandemonium and Nowhere are suddenly unreachable. Basic characters, with an extra benefice point. Etyri characters would get another, and Shantor would get two. Some races and character types not allowed.

The Spycraft would be a Rainbow Six / James Bond / Action / Adventure game, with the early emphasis on simple assualt/rescue scenarios, moving into a grander tale later. Players would get point buy, with an extra feat based in highest attribute (or choice if one or more are the same). Most likely Shadow Force Archer setting.

Old School WOD, starting in mid nighties. Wraiths, Mortals, Mages, Werewolves, Caitiff Vampires, Arcanum characters & Hunters will be the order of the day. Still haven't decided on the focus of the campaign, but you'll all be 'outside' the major supernatural groups. Maybe an independent group, Arcanum investigators, Hunter Cell, something along those lines. Basic mortals will get a leg up in the form of extra points, most likely to backgrounds.

Also, the world would be slightly modified, but the Reckoning/Gehenna/Etc is still fast approaching. Major difference is that the Wraiths are still around and playable, although not for much longer, because the Storm is gathering...


Basically what I was hoping is that someone here could give me some ideas to use in them.

I've already got a rough idea of what I'd like to do obviously, but between work, life, and running all my other games, I'm finding myself stretched a bit thin.

Any help you can offer would be appreciated.

Scenarios, musings, plot hooks, bad guys/girls, good guys/girls, funky machines, world wide conspiracy theories, etc, etc, etc.

You name it, I'd love to hear about it.

Heck, if you've got something that you want playtested on another group, let me hear it.
