I’m digging through my archives of RPG notes and ran across this paragraph — a pitch for a sci fi superheroes campaign which I never got around to running. I was a big fan of Jim Starlin’s ‘Dreadstar’ comic series back in the 1980s, and this campaign is an homage to that pulpy space opera setting. We’ll see if I ever get around to running this — I would probably use Fate or QuestWorlds as the ruleset if I did! Here’s the pitch:
This is the second of a 10-part series I’m doing on my favorite game systems.
My 9th favorite game system is a game most people have not (yet) heard of — QuestWorlds.
I’ve been intrigued by the upcoming QuestWorlds RPG. It will be the third major edition of the rules when it comes out (previously it was Hero Wars and then HeroQuest (not to be confused with the miniatures game of the same name).
It is sort of like Fate or Cortex, a narrative game, but is faster and more streamlined than other similar games.
