Pathfinder or Eclipse Phase...you decide!

Postby shanehugh » Tue Jun 26, 2012 8:22 pm

Given I'm on a GM break for the next few months...(and missing it already!)...I'm working through our options for a campaign in the new year and given that December is usually out its only 5 sessions away!

A couple of options standout at the moment and I would like some feedback about what you would like to tackle.

First option that springs to mind is The Slumbering Tsar campaign by Greg Vaughan...an 8 year labour of love from the best fantasy adventure writer in the business.

This review gives a great insight into whats in store and is very much in keeping with my views of the saga http://www.enworld.org/forum/en-world-o ... -saga.html ....it simply oozes character (you guys got a little taste with the Benderkaupf Brothers!)

Its a beast of a thing and damned tough on players...I have read the first 6 chapters!

It's fully Pathfinder System compatible and would require characters to start off around level 6-7 and takes them through to 20+.

Second option is Eclipse Phase and a break from Fantasy for a while which will be 100% homebrew campaign with a mix of themes rolled into one juicy, unpalatable morsel :twisted:

My preference probably leans a little towards Tsar simply because after reading over half the campaign its just a fantastic piece of work and specifically geared towards older veteran gamers.

Not overly fussed though but I want to get a lot of the behind the scenes work underway well before the campaign launches so let me know your thoughts so I can gauge where to start.

Not just limited to our current player base either so if anyone wants a crack at it give me a PM and I will see what I can do.

I'm easy either way, but I know Tanya is keen to get back into pathfinder, so that's two votes for Slumbering Tsar from us...

To be honest that's what I would really love to GM as its just so chock full of awesome encounters tied together with a great storyline.

I can guarantee that the authors creativity is damn well fantastic!

Starting out at level 7 should give the group a chance at some higher level play as well which will be interesting.

I'd be keen on Eclipse Phase, but that said I've been keen for Eclipse Phase for a while now :D

However, quite enjoying our Pathfinder campaign we're playing at moment :)

I'd be interested in Eclipse Phase as it sounds new, exciting and character driven (I'm already in a 3 year old D&D campaign).

Understand the Pathfinder lure though.

I am cool for either though I will admit that the idea of having a character rich mid level Pathfinder game so that would be my choice :-)

Won't be either for me. Sorry chaps I'm out.

from the boot and backseat of his car did he
produce the multitude of wargames crafted by the hand of
man. And lo his knowledge of all of them was mighty.
