Ron Conley will be running this one. It is set in a different section of the Majestic Wilderlands I've rarely played in. He said think of King Arthur/Game of Thrones type setting. And our group has grown again. We will have six players involved. I rarely play in games where there is more than four, so this should be fun.
After a short discussion we decided to be a band of mercenaries with various skills and oddities. I believe one guys is playing some sort of puppeteer. In GURPS you can make the work for you. One is going to be a disgraced knight. Not sure about the others. I was thinking of playing a ex-church knight who has some very strange beliefs about the religion he once served.
Unlike the current trend of character funneling in DCC, we put a lot of planning into the creation of characters. It's fun and makes you really invest a bit more. Nothing wrong with funneling and it can be a ton of fun, but so is sculpting a character you want to play for a while. Get a concept and run with it.
I'm also thinking of getting involved in some pick up games on Google+. I want to try different games/systems. Would love to give Call of Cthulu a go. Haven't had the chance yet. If anyone has a suggestion let me know. Have a good one.
