This has very classic feel to it, so much that I can almost taste the adolescent game table irony along with flat mountain dew and crap take out food.  Thank you for that.  



 



Fun and playful.

I could see something like this, though certainly Grayer, since they would be a great threat politically.

I think they would be almost assuredly corrupt other than in the most optimistic of campaign worlds, they have too much power otherwise.

On a scale of Sweet to Awesome from Beyond the Stars, I would rate it a Wicked Fine.
By the way- whatever possessed you to give a fantasy character the name Lorraine McQueen?

Yes, I was inspired by Anne Rice, should anyone be interested you can read more about Aunt Queen in the book 'Blackwood Farm'

I took the basic character and adapted her to fit a game setting, and if you had read the character completely you would see that Tarquinn was included, but in a tertiary manner.

AS for Goblin and Lestat, no I don't think that they would make good characters, too involved for the former, and too munchkin for the latter. Reading is good for GM/DM/ST's but far too many limit themselves to game books and the fantasy genre in general which produces a certain flavor of character that becomes old after a while, with everyone broken down into levels/XP/class and rank and special abilities.

Maybe you should add a note hinting that you were inspired by Anne Rice? But i do think that it will work fine using Aunt Queen in a game. Good you didnt bring along Goblin, Lestat and Tarquin to. Go to Comment

I like the idea and it's a good setting. Jousts and fairs are commonly used in rpg's, but I've never been to an rpg horse race, which makes this seem neat to me. I've never been to a real horse race either, but this doesn't sound to me like it has much that is original. I take aaway a concept I like "let's put an adventure in a horse race setting" and it adds an element of reality to the world (townspeople arent always selling swords to passers-by and farming) but I don't get much more than if the whole post had been "horse race setting."

I think this is an excellent starting location for a campaign. You're PCs could all be involved in some aspect of the facilty during their early career.

Would like to see some plot ideas here though. Perhaps open up the sub as a scroll or codex to add to it :) Go to Comment

Other contesting creatures could include: a wyvern, a (secretly) undead mummified unicorn (hey, man, why is your steed wearing barding in a race? -to give the other's a chance, lad!) or a nightmare with hooves of fire (though the last one could easily become enamoured with Spellshaper!

I love it when reality and fantasy collide violently. Orson Scott Card. paraphrasing Gibson, once said, the best sci-fi/ fantasy stories are those of the real world taken just a touch farther. Go to Comment

Simple yet interesting all at the same time. I like the difference of making it fantasy creatures instead of your basic horse race. Kind of like the Triple Crown meets Quiddich. Go to Comment
