  1. In the end, I think the answer to your original question is: "When do you feel like it's become Call of Cthulu?" Indie could arguably have "feelings" about things, and his abilities with that whip certainly border on the supernatural. The were monsters and boogums that could come out, though they were easily defeated if you just remembered your legends well enough. Wizards, aliens, deities...They all made an appearance in the movies, and it sounds like the books didn't help on that score at all. I guess in the end the real delineation is if the game started feeling like "monster of the week," then you've probably gone a little too far. In the end, the whole point to all the Raiders stories is that there's at least some element of truth to all of these old stories.
  2. Looking at this thread, and suddenly I'm thinking of a Bleach-style campaign. Possibly because I'm reading the manga currently. How to keep everyone from wanting to be damn lieutenants or captains with their shikai and bankai though? Hmmm.
  3. I'm one of those guys that companies tend to dislike. I have the core book for 4th along with a Fantasy Hero Companion II and III, 5th ed. core book with Ultimate Martial Artist and Fantasy Hero. That's it. I can say the same of any other RPG systems that I GM or play with though: I get the core books needed, and unless the material is something that I used repeatedly and often, that's all I work with, and pretty much never setting related stuff. That last is just more fun to come up with on your own.
  4. How did you come up with your 'handle' (forum name)? "Kesedrith" is a shortened, human-pronouncable version of the name of my dragon alter ego. Hey, you asked. What was the first tabletop RPG you played? My first RPG was the old, original, red-boxed D&D set, back in 1979. Yep, I'm one of those ancient-timers. What was the first tabletop RPG you GMed? The same as above. I was the first GM, having no clue what to do, for my first gaming group. What are you currently playing/GMing? Nothing. I moved to the Cleveland, OH area from the Atlanta, GA area about three years ago and haven't had the time to find a group to join up here. I'm trying to remedy this, so if you're in the Cleveland area.....
