A Kickstarter That Time Forgot - The Morrow Project
Making the old new again doesn't stop with the OSR it seems.
The Morrow Project was not a game I initially had direct knowledge of back in my early days of gaming. Sure, I had seen the ads in Dragon, I just had little to no clue as to what it was all about.
That changed one day when one of my friends gave me his copy of The Morrow Project.
"Dude, I really want to play this. Read the rules and run it for us. Please!" I tried to read the rules, but they were the usual mess that the small game publishers back then usually put out. I couldn't quite get a handle on the system, and truth to tell, my desire wasn't there. The old group played our last game in February of 1997. Paul was lost when the Towers came down on 9-11-01. Damn shame, because he would have been all over this Kickstarter.
I may have to pick this up solely for the memories of what was and what never came to be. Hell, I might have to actually run a session this time around. I suspect it will play much like a pen and paper Fallout ;)
(16 days left and its already blown past goal - $22k+ with a goal of $15)
Next RPG that That Time Forgot will be Synnibarr ;)
