More Thoughts on a Thieves' World Campaign...
The Thieves' World Boxed set has grabbed me by the proverbial balls. I'm thinking it might make for a very nice sandbox yet episodic campaign.
Here's my thoughts:
Crypts & Things for the base ruleset
Scarlet Heroes for the skills / traits. Basically 2d8 plus stat bonus plus trait bonus if applicable. Average task requires an 11 or better. I'd have to write up a list of applicable traits but that's fine.
D30 Sandbox Companion for filling in any holes.
I'd have to get the Thieves' World Player's Guide into my players hands. It's out there on the interwebs for them to find.
I'd ask them for their goals and plans and work the hooks and schemes around that. Flexible plot points for the players to choose and react to or not. Less dungeon, more intrigue.
No expectations that it would follow the series of books, but notable characters may be seen.
Damn. I don't have time for another campaign, but the idea is just so damn cool...
