Another campaign

Argh. A while back (a year ago, I think), I had this idea for a UA campaign set at a travelling freakshow in the early years of the last century. (This was before the CARNIVALE tv series, by the way.) It'd be a really great game, but would require more time and prep and buy-in from the players than I can easily obtain.

So, anyway, I pushed that to the back burner, to run at some hypothetical future time. Now, I just picked up ANGRY LEAD SKIES, one of Glen Cook's novels about a magical private detective, and goddamn do I want to run a pulpy D&D/steampunk game where the PCs are gumshoes. Maybe combine it with Eberron...

Behind on book, and the con's coming up. I'm therefore retreating to my mother's house for a day or two, away from the temptations of friends and broadband, so I can try to break the back of the remaining chapters. It worked for Book of the Sea.

And as I hack through the undergrowth of a billion herbs for Quint Druid II, I pause to note that this ANGRY LEAD SKIES book is really really good. It's also totally suited for an rpg - you've got a party of PCs and the annoying GMs-mouthpiece character (who's basically a psionic lich who possesses a parrot). Awesome.
