In which I provide links to the posts I make under the handle, Paka, in various gaming forums.
Practical Dungeon-keeping is my way of providing some kind of cultural back-story for dungeon-crawling.
New Gidea is the last town I ran in the fine game of Dogs in the Vineyard.
At some point I will run a Burning Wheel one-shot with Jeff and JJ. I’m inspired by the idea of the adventures of Legolas and Gimli when they were traipsing around Middle-Earth together. Kinda like Thelma and Louise but y’know…with an axe and a bow.
Paula and Robert and I will be finishing up our Dictionary of Mu mini-campaign we’ve been playing over the summer.
And in this last one people post really nice things about me. Garsh.
That’s what my geek mind is posting about now.
…with an axe and a bow.
And less sex with Brad Pitt?
I follow the lead of my players.
Although Orlando Bloom as Legolas making out with Brad Pitt might be a bit much for me to GM.
I went and hyped you up a tiny bit more. Cheers.
OK, so Brad Pitt-sex aside…
The comparison to <>Thelma and Louise<> got me to thinking… why would Legolas and Gimli be on the run from the law?
And then I remembered reading about how JRR had planned a sequel to LotR, set in a Gondor ruled by Aragorn’s less than heroic son. (He ended up scrapping the project because he thought it’d be too dark.)And then I realized that L&G would probably still be around…
So, what about a swashbuckling game in which Legolas and Gimli quest throughout Middle-Earth to rescue Aragorn’s true heir from wherever the usurping (and kinda sleazy) second son has stashed him, a la <>Man in the Iron Mask<>? Can the two remaining Walkers prevent their friend’s legacy from being sullied, and save the kingdom he gave his life to from falling into a new corruption? Will they need to travel to the Shire to recruit a new generation of Hobbits who are too adventurous for their own good?
Or am I just nuts?
While I’m glad you think so, I worry you might be setting up a false dichotomy, here. 😉
I know what that is but ya lost me.
The idea may indeed rock, but that doesn’t mean I’m not nuts. 🙂
