tkdguy Posted September 26, 2020 Report Share Posted September 26, 2020 This thread is for storing and sharing any ideas related to rpgs. The level of detail or completion doesn't matter. It's meant to be a place to put in ideas so you don't forget it, or want to revisit it in the future, or just because your players wouldn't be interested in the ideas. I got this idea when rereading my Rolemaster books. There are so many different types of spellcasters, most of which specialize in one form of magic. So I thought about a possible campaign where all magic must focus on a single aspect. There won't be generic wizards casting fireballs. There will be healers, oracles, alchemists, and other specialists. Magic will be more utilitarian and less combat-oriented. HERO can do this quite easily, but it probably won't work very well for D&D. I probably won't develop this too much, since I'm pretty sure my players won't like this idea. Another idea I got is something I had thought about a long time ago, but I had forgotten about it until recently. I recently received a lot of Highlander cards for my birthday. These cards are out of print, but they are still around. The game is about dueling Immortals, of course. There are other out-of-print card games like the Werewolf and Vampire cards from White Wolf. While they're not roleplaying games, what if you make a campaign by combining the game sessions into a single setting, perhaps within a story arc? You can always do a freeform roleplaying session and use the card games to play out the combat scenes. The same principle can work in wargames.
