Hi everyone. I'm playing around with a few ideas for a modern magic role playing game based on Shadowrun but not using those rules. Basically it's a bit of 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer', 'Charmed', 'Blade' and a few ideas pinched from films, novels and anything going through my brain at the time. It will be set in Gibsonville and will, hopefully, complement Hugh's Gang Wars game - maybe they'll overlap sometimes unsure Not sure when it'll start but if you're interested in playing watch this space. Comments please, chaps. :)

Sounds good.

Will the PCs be working for an organisation/secret society of some kind ?

I was thinking along the lines of a loose alliance of Awakened PCs and their mundane friends fighting off the Forces of Evil. Gibsonville is a node for magical activity and attracts a lot of weird people and things.

I'd certainly come on board as well!

The idea of adding magic to the mix of a modern RPG will allow me to finally play Doctor Strange, my favourite hero of all time! Magic & Mayhem ... Doctor Strange can give you plenty!!! ... Walts

Hi Guys .... I've been trawling round the web to see if I can find a 28mm Doctor Strange model, with no luck. Here's some info on the great mage ...

>>> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctor_Strange

Has anyone any ideas where I could get one, or something similer that Ross could paint up for me for the upcoming RPG? ... Walts

Hi Waltz,

If you wanted a figure that was 28mm and looked great then head over to ebay and search for a Dr Strange heroclix figure that you could get already painted etc. There are loads of them out there and it would save you time and money.

I knowwwww! surprised But he just sounds better as a "Master of the Black Arts". He is, of course, an all-round good guy!

Here's a link to his profile ...

>>> http://marvel.com/universe/Doctor_Strange

... from the Marvel Comic's. Quite a nice write up on his "Powers" on the left hand side of his profile. Have a read, go onnnnn ... Walts


EDIT: Hi Guys ... there seems to be "quirks" from the link above, so go to this address ...

>>> www.marvel.com/universe/Doctor_Strange_(Stephen_Strange)

... to see all the profile stats (aka "Powers") correctly for Dr. Strange. You might need to cut&paste it too ur internet browsers. Computers, don't u just hate them!

have a few of ideas for characters.

1) A Japanese swordmaster .....magic abilities :

lay on hands (healing like mr. Miyagi...karaate kid)

Kinetic forcefield (to stop bullets)

Super Leap ( like Jedi)

2) a japanese hacker with magic abilties in the net.

3) a goth/rasta voodoo zombie-master.

It all sounds good. I'll try and work any characters into the game. Wasn't really thinking of anything too wacky or far out. Me and my simple mind!

If it's alright with you chaps I'd like to put a bit of RPG colour into the cyberpunk game on Sunday. The fight would ideally be set in the Industrial Estate but that's not set in stone.

No Probs.

What kind of archetypes did you have in mind for the RPG ?

Street punks with magic ?

College kids with magic ?

Corporate wage-slaves discover they have magic ?????

DEMON : " When next we meet, i shall tear you limb from limb...there will be no escape. "

Hero: " You bring balloon animals and i'll hire a clown..... we can make it a regular party. "

Not really archetypes, just ordinary people who discover they have magic. Can't really explain it surprised
