  1. I'm in the very early stages of making a Star Wars role playing playlist for spotify. I was wondering if anyone had thoughts about songs I could add in. I want some traditional williams stuff in there mixed with other music that won't push people out of the Star Wars mindset, but might not be a star wars song. Playlist Link: http://bit.ly/EoTeSpot
  2. Agreed, my point was more that this will be decidedly different from ZA, with the focus taken off of something you can kill (although there are always other survivors that might need a killin,) and more towards getting the hell out of dodge and going to ground. I really like ZA, but everyone has thought about what they might do in the case of a zombie apocalypse, TV and movies provide ideas as well. Trying to run from actual gods is a different beast altogether. I have to say I reside on the other side of the fence. Just surviving is a limited story with a very narrow scope. why not have your players find their way to the World Tree? Give them a reason to plunge to the depths of the underworld (many stories of legend add this in some fashion). Let them be the mortals that impossibly shift the mighty river of destiny, an action no one not even Odin could predict. There is so much more joy in simply not being underfoot for the grudge match of the century. Im not disagreeing on that being awesome, but I think you could get a lot out of the story by portraying it realistically. Playing as yourself in ZA, the main motivation is to survive. As a PC I would be hard pressed to believe that I could be chosen by Zeus or Odin or the Flying Spaghetti Monster to be their mortal agent (or mortal host if you wanna get all Zhul about it). If it takes the PC to a place where they are interacting with Gods then id becomes a much more traditional RPG. That's not to say you can't make it exciting, but if I was given leeway by a god to do his bidding, that is going to take away from the fear and survival aspect of the game. I'm not saying your way wouldn't be fun, but keeping the PCs close to their true self has it's merits too.

  4. Agreed. I think this book will have to do a good enough job of seperating itself from ZA to warrant the price. I can just see my guys trying to mess with Baldur or something.... "You're dead." "What? Why, I didn't even get a roll?!?!" "You threw a rock at Baldur, he's a god. You are smashed." Shortest campaign ever,
  5. I'm really excited for this book, but im wondering how combat will be handled for the Ragnarok scenario. With zombies you have the option of combat, and as myself I could see killing a zombie or two, but it's unlikely that I'll be able to grab Thor's hammer out of his hand and smack him with it. Even if there are Asgardian minions running around I would assume they would be more than a match for me. any thoughts? Edit: Awful spelling
  6. I've GM'd a few campaigns in other systems, and I like to have my ducks in a row as much as possible. I'm wondering how some of you might have planned out your campaign on paper. Since there is no real "end game" goal other than to survive (for a 1 shot or short campaign) do you try to "breadcrumb" PC's to specific encounters? I know that would be difficult based on the open world idea of the game itself, but im curious as to how control freak GMs like myself get along with it. Thanks!
  7. I know im way late to the party on this post but I thought I would add that Dungeons and Dragons 5e Beginner box and FF's own Edge of the Empire Beginner box are great for a group of people not used to tabletop RPG's. Everything is laid out for you and they are fairly cheap. I only posted this as you said you wanted to do ZA every other week, and it's more of a short form campaign system.
