Winter/Spring Quest Brainstorming (and Poll)
« on: December 01, 2009, 11:26:33 AM »
Hold-Overs from previous Quest Brainstorming
Secret Societies
5 in 1 sans heavy rules
Tattoos and Magic
Aerial/sky
Genre Franchise (trek etc)
Summer Festivals
Alcoholic beverages
Rebellion/Revolution/Revolts
Agricultural/farming

And the real reason I started this topic is: I'd really like to see what the authors of the citadel could come up with for "The Zombie Apocalypse!", so I want to throw this into the hat for the next quest also!

Zombie stuff
Specialised tools: http://zombietools.net/. (For the record, I personally advise against any weapon that leads to you being showered in contaminated zombie guts, but there you go...)

I like the Zombies idea, it would balance out nicely against all of that happy holiday cheer

Maybe not good for Winter quest, but I would eventually like to see 'Way of the Fist', gear and systems for the hand-to-hand fighter. ;)

Otherwise, I like booze and Zombies.

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

Siren, thanks for the idea: I think I might just try to write up a way-of-the-fist martial system designed against... zombies, of course.

I know what you mean, Siren.  Zombies is one thing, but I don't dabble in apocalypse scenarios often enough apparently. I've had a few brief ideas. Overall, I hate to say it, but this Quest just doesn't inspire me much.

I'm gonna attribute the lackluster response to the fact that most of us are too heavily immersed in the fantasy genre to conceive of appropriate apocalyptic scenarios  featuring classic zombies out to devour cheerleaders.
