I love when the entire group rides the wave of a great gaming session, like surfers finding a legendary wave, harmonising with the energy. One of my favourite campaigns was a Changeling road trip, as mentioned for day 24. One of the PCs was an Eshu who was a driver for the circus and a trained pilot. Because of their Eshu Birthright: Spirit Pathways, the character would often take detours on the trip. Many sessions felt like I was a passenger on party’s ride, whole scenes requiring no GM/ST feedback/comments.

In real-life the ability to ride out a flurry of strikes, or when riding the aggressive wave of a strong grappler, is a fascinating combination of perseverance and strategy; I miss training. 😦 When SFRPG first came out several players and I discussed how we could enhance riding out situations in the game. Some of the possibilities suggested were energy systems, freshness modifiers, comparison tables, strategy modifiers, but the conclusion became: this is unnecessary complexity for little gain. As we played and learned more about the system, we felt it did in fact capture these real-life experiences, whilst not interfering with early blitzing.
When preparing for this event I had planned to publish my mechanics for Wraith: the Oblivion and skin-riding in SFRPG. Punho do Guerreiro has Vampires, Werewolves, Mages and Changelings, but Wraith is a game I’d like to play more of, so of course I got talking with a player about a fusion game. Those rules still need a ton of playtesting, but if the mini-campaign goes well I hope to submit to the community for feedback. Maybe be published in Punho do Guerreiro 🙂 The player adores Wraith and SF, so the idea is to play some mini-sessions, exploring a Risen seeking revenge; The Crow but in Street Fighter; we have also briefly discussed Bryan Fury from Tekken.
