I’ve enthused my two regulars to try a short-medium campaign of BW after having a blast with Dungeon World and then playing the Sword and having a ball. They have been sucked in (along with everyone else it seems) with the whole Game of Thrones trope and asked if playing a ‘high level’ game like that was possible. Sure! I said. I’m considering branching into the Burning Kingdoms hack on the wiki a little bit later, but for now I just want to run a pure core ruleset game introducing circles, resources, DoW session by session as needs arise and I want to have a bevy of focused pitches to throw at them this weekend when we sit down to world burn. I’m keen for almost anything, but the lads have suggested that playing characters similar to the troubled nobelese and their entourage in the books / tv series is what they want. They just don’t have any solid ideas, they’re excited, its just all rather vague.
So to avoid disparity, I’m asking for my fellow burners to give me your thoughts on some juicy situations to kick off with. Sordid Lords, tempted knights, conniving high presitesses, self-serving pirate kings, whoremasters, outcast dragon ladies and disgruntled enuch’s - its all fair game. I just need a few FoN for the player’s character choices and relationships and a ‘grabby’ situation. the setting will be generic, but heavily influnced by the GoT archetype, we’ll build that through world burning / play.
Thoughts? Suggestions? I really want to have some good solid pitches for this game to be a success
Thanks in advance!
