Alternative Resource Material for Fading Suns
Labels: Game: fading suns
I've run Fading Suns games inspired by Westerns and Chanbara, suggested long-term plots informed by horror movies, conspiracy tales, and victorian-era comedy of manners vignettes. I've gleefully taken mcguffins from post-human SF and from epic fantasy, and pilfered interesting characters from sources as varied as movies, novels, TV shows, and NPCs from other RPGs.
As Fading Suns 3rd Edition approaches, I think I'll also be starting a series of posts on various RPGs I've taken some stuff from and smushed into the setting somehow (not that hard, there are a lot of adventure hooks that jump out at you as you read various sourcebooks). Only this time, I'll try to be a bit more thoughtful about how I do it!
