So this past week before I left my family at the end of the holidays, me and my old friends got together to try out the new sourcebook I'd gotten. Awesome ensued. You know; eggshelling a reaper straight out of its armor using a half-broken anti-material rifle and two HEAP rounds, sniffing out a cloaked ultimate, holding him at gunpoint, having his invisible friend hold YOU at gunpoint... then some business involving a wasp knife and both of them being well out of the picture. Not to mention a few very interesting close shaves involving lots of explosives and potential massive hull breach. This was perhaps the best session of incidental DMing I've ever had. I have profuse notes from the pre-prepared campaign on binder paper and I'm in the process of putting them to keyboard. This is an experiment, a mini-campaign with an open beginning, middle and end with only the NPCs, their agendas, their secrets and key events to move the story along defined. Right now, I have a first draft of the setting introduction, including some articles on the unique but minor colony on which the story's set, the stark class divisions and the throwback architecture that dominates the once-grand halls of this slum. The formatting is all very experimental, but most of the content isn't. So, I'm wondering if what I have is decent detail for this sub-setting, does it inspire or is it deathly insufficient? What about the formatting? (I'm likely going to convert to a two-column format.) This will likely be a short romp of a project and something I'd like to release for everyone openly. Is this common? Are fanmade works encouraged here? EDIT 2: Release 3, Tabitha Sinqdot's profile has been updated with a new onformation layout. EDIT: Release 2 added 1/16. New info on some initial campaign events and more on characters.
