Inspiration: Downton Abbey

I can't wait for Season 2. I wonder if it'll have only 7 eps too.
I'm floored, absolutely floored by this series.

It's not really something I'd want to run as a game, but it certainly sheds some light on the type of stories that can go on behind the scenes of a household.

Power struggles, politics, good manners, principles, proper behavior, and misunderstandings -- and their consequences.

Absolutely lovely. I'm looking Fading Suns in a whole new light. Those nobles -- especially the ones who have to manage households -- really have a lot on their minds. And the household -- their lives aren't mere jobs, they're careers. That some of them took pride in.

A lot to think about.


  1. Agreed. I didn't realize it was going to have seasons, and so when it didn't come to a completion like a regular Masterpiece Theatre series, it was a cruel moment for me!

  2. Sorry, didn't see you there. New season already out in the U.K.!


That's my side of things. Let me know what you think, my friend.
