After Dead Stars

The thinking is this:
– somewhat neutered DH campaign
– continue as is
– fob decision off on next GM (mark/LL?)
– RT campaign
– combo campaign
– different system (Call Of Cthulhu?)

Personally I’m waiting on seeing what develops through DSs. I think a combo RT/Ascension campaign could be great, but that Ra’s idea for a ‘lower key’ campaign could work well too. With that in mind another DH campaign (possibly involving RT characters? Dan could try an explorator or navigator for example) which bridges into RT. Then when we’re nearer ascension we can do a joint RT/Ascens campaign?

In any case, I like the idea of the narrative being continued, even if we divert away from Theta Cell a little. Or give Theta Cell a starship/assigned to a Warrant of Trade? Hmmm. Who knows!

I like the thought of keeping Talon on the go ’til ascension level, but I’d happily move her offstage for a while as we do a RT-oriented (or lower key) campaign.

Taking Ra’s low-level game idea, there’s a thought in my head that ‘noob’ characters could simply start at the bottom but earn double XP per session, so they advance very quickly to catch up but have the added hamstring of being much weaker in general? It work as a RT/DH cross, all start ‘out of the book’, 400xp for DH noobs, 5000xp for RT noobs (i.e. rank 1 RT) or something along those lines?

Anyhow, food for thought. Need to see how we do in Dead Stars anyway!

  1. Don’t forget about Sanity Lost, Xisor! Or the little things I noticed for you. Remember the Key that the Istavaanists/Recongregators (I forget which) are searching for in the House of Dust and Ash? That’s supposed to lead to some kind of epic sector-destroying thing. I do believe that qualifies as the beginnings of a new campaign 😛
