The Shift Life (Changing Breeds + GMC)



  • That's a good start. Might I suggest throwing in a few more crises just to give people various directions to push against? Like in DW 2.0, you had various True Fae operating in different areas and such, maybe have a few different villains as well.

    Maybe throw in a Pentex Jr. style company corrupting CBs and using them for weird medical research. And the Pure, wanting to purge the CBs from the area. And some big-bad spirits slumbering spirits that are starting to awaken from all the commotion.

    That sort of stuff would be radical, and give players a bigger picture of the area around them, and rather than 'Okay, we beat Boss A, now Boss B appears', they could pick and choose their battles and work against the various nefarious influences piece by piece.

    @Admiral One problem is that I don't want to overwhelm people. I want to give people a clear and concise view of: This is what will happen on the game.

    I don't want to push it much further than that. DW: GMC Changeling had some good stuff going for it, but alot of it didn't get really used-- the various NPC antags I made up didn't get too much play time.



  • I think the antagonists would have gotten used if the game had picked up. I don't know what kept it from growing, but I'm pretty sure that particular aspect of the game was spot on.

    All the 'problems' don't need to be fixed at once, anyways, but it would give players the ability to act against problems without the need to completely solve them.

    But I understand where you're coming from. I'd just like to see the world fleshed out more with other issues on the horizon aside from the immediate need to stop X from doing Y. It's like a TV series that is episodic versus one with a story arc.

    A friend of mine was working on a complete rewrite of the book, and had started to rewrite it for GMC based sort of rules, if you were interested? I know I would be very interested in a Feral game, even if it was broken as old feral could be (and I played Karasu @TR, I broke that book wiiiide open <grins>)



  • I already have most of Camelot's notes from when he started on the project. Never knew why he stopped, though.

    Likely? He got bored. Distracted. Something more interesting came along. He doesn't have the most... Dedicated personality in the world to personal projects <grin>
