Beauty In Zombies?
All Flesh Must Be Eaten zombies have variability. Yes, that’s right. Zombies come in all flavors, er, appetites, er, deadness. Well, anyway, trying to figure out their diet is easy, but trying to figure out how to dispose of them is trial and error. Well, you only get one try, really.
D&D not the only RPG out there?
It’s true, and we’ve seen many d20 offshoots. M&M, True20, Pure20, and countless others. This aside, there is Rifts, Shadowrun, BRP, and more indie games than one could imagine.
Kent, Who, and Jones in an RPG, OH MY!
Can you play Clark or the Doctor or Indiana in their respective role playing games without overshadowing the other player characters? What aspiring super could match all the powers of a man from Krypton? What hopes do companions of the Doctor have when they’re only going to be around for a short time with few skills outside their own time, compared to the Doctor’s many incarnations, lifetimes of knowledge of the past and future, and that universal screwdriver that can fix anything from dishes to computers? All the sidekicks and friends of Indiana have no where near the luck of this archeologist adventurer, as Indiana is the driving force of the story. These characters can, will, and do overshadow all other characters in the story. Solutions? In their home RPG, these powerhouses might be better off as NPCs. That or try them in RISUS and PDQ.
