#12rpg Question 12: Name an RPG, setting, or adventure you haven’t run or played before, but really want to try out in 2018. What particularly appeals about it?
Games: Chaosium’s Superworld from 1983 is a game I think might possibly see some table time next year. There has also been some talk of the reviled Champions: New Millenium, which should prove interesting. And, in that vein, I recently picked up a copy of the original Fantasy HERO from 1985 that I’d like to take for a spin.
Settings: It’s my current project to earn my Tolkien merit badge, and I’m hoping that will have the side effect of spending some time in Middle-Earth, be it with The One Ring, MERP, or something else. The new RuneQuest should be out in the new year, so maybe a slight possibility of some Glorantha — but I am not holding my breath.
Adventures: My general RPG nostalgia of late also has me jazzed to play some Call of Cthulhu. Both the new Harlem Unbound and the forthcoming, revised Masks of Nyarlathotep seem to be urging me further in that direction.
There’s a distinct absence of stuff I’ve Kickstarted on this list. I’m not really sure why. I’ve posted before about getting a little fatigued of all the new shiny and wanting to take second looks at games that have sat unplayed on my shelf for, literally, decades. It’s probably that.
