The Zarkon Campaign

Recommended Posts

Some time ago, back during the days of the BBB, I was in talks with Bruce Harlick about bringing my Flash Gordon homage out as a campaign book for Justice Inc. It didn't happen because that version of HERO Games was imploding due to various reasons at the time. But I always hoped to bring it out someday.

 

The recent success of the Strike Force kickstarter had me thinking about Aaron's Lands of Mystery, which led me back to the Zarkon campaign and the aborted attempt to bring it to a wider audience. I like to see if now is the time.

 

In our current sue-happy world I've had to change things that I didn't bother changing back in the mid 80s, when I shamelessly "borrowed" quite a bit, often without even changing the names. Hopefully this will keep King Features Syndicate of my back. But the flavor and feel remains the same, just the details have been changed.

 

For example: instead of one race of Lionmen there will be at least three Catmen races each comprising a caste ala the Apes in the original Planet of the Apes, Warriors, Scientist/Philosophers, and Workers.

 

I'd have to conform to the current rules of course but I'd also like to include a set of stats as per JI for those dinosaurs, like myself, that prefer the original system.

 

So my question is do you guys think this would be viable? In other words would you be interested in supporting it and buying it?

 

Here's a look at the outline to help you decide, and please feel free to ask questions

Thank you, Scott! I really appreciate it.

 

This campaign was a special one for me. It was the first time that things really clicked with my players. I remember the first time I used a Cut-Away Cliffhanger. They all literally stood up, clapped, and cheered!

I was going to say I can't really say just based off the description, but the pdf will doubtless give more insight. I wont be able to read it for a bit but further comenting may be comming. Of course no sooner will I get to the good bit when a mysterious shot will fire at me.
