I have a dream!
I've had this dream long before FC was available. *grins* And now that FC is here, I would LOVE to see that dream make at LEAST some small progress.
That there are fire arms tables and a lovely pic of draconic pistol on pg. 176 only makes me grin wider. Big swords? Check! Buckles to Swash? Check! Magic to Cast? Check! ...So whats missing from my dreams?
More gadget based stuff I think? I'm not sure...
I used to read SoulSaga (check out http://www.SoulSaga.com
, if you like) and BattleChasers (http://www.battlechasers.com
, too if you like), awesome comic books with... well its not steampunk. I guess I need a new term. I dub thee, ManaPunk?
High Fantasy. High Magic. Where Mages are mages and mighty Swordsmen are swordsmen of note. Airships. armored vehicles to move across the dangerous landscape.
Some things are easy enough to re-imagine. flying creatures. hoards of little goblins. fire arms (though I imagine them using some sort of naturally occurring combustible mana related mineral in my campaign).
But what would be a good source to build airships? SC2.0? Gadgets? Armor that looks way heavier then it should? (maybe just what happens when you magically empower it in any fashion) powered mundane weapons? (the same for weapons but with a particular damage type added?) Giant Robot PC's? (I think I can use use the unborn with some sort of large template Master Class? or a Racial offshoot feat tree?) Campaign Qualities? Suggestions? I'd love to hear interpretations on the subject.
Come, help make my dreams of a ManaPunk game come to fruition
