…green cheese not included
I was going to post this last night, but about 47 different things conspired to prevent that. Anyway, here we go…
Game Discussion Part 3
To sum up my “Level Zero” series idea…characters start in a limited geographical area (their home town and evirons)…characters have very low level skills and stats (due to being kids/teens)…characters may or may not know what they want to be when they grow up…adventures are used to determine which of their stats get bonuses or minuses and which skills they develop first, as well as giving them a chance to collect a bit of loot to finance their future lifestyle.
Pretty simple, really, and I think it would be alot of fun. The ever creative Doc_Mystery has compared the idea to running a “Dungeons & Hardy Boys” series and he’s pretty much spot on the mark. The Hardy Boys series would make a good template, as would The Little Rascals if you used younger kids.
So, will I actually RUN this series? The answer is…yes. If I can get a gaming group formed again here at Cross Central, I’ll start them out using it. If that doesn’t happen, then I may well run a “Young Adventurers In Training” game as part of my ShadowCon idea at GenCon 2007.
Now to toss out a couple of ideas for the next round of game discussion: assuming it was arranged that somebody could create official PDF products for Over The Edge, what would you like to see?
Next, I’m planning on discussing my CyberPulp alternate 1930’s world setting. Anyone interested in hearing about it?
And now, from the Home Office in Hilo, Hawaii, here are…

Now I’m off to Dr. Yen’s EZ Bake Oven, then work.
