Ever heard of mash ups? Its where MTV or some other big shot (and sometimes bedroom JD’s) take two songs from different genres and put them together. A new thought accoured to me yesterday… why not do this with RPG’s? In the light of the D20 system, it was pretty much designed to do this but to be honest, I’ve never heard of anyone actually doing it. I did try something along these lines once mself in a Stargate game (by AEG) I was running where I introduced some Farscape creatures from the D20 game also by AEG. But this could have been so much more…..
- D&D with Traveller – Travel from city to city trading goods rather than protecting someone elses.
- 7th Sea with Exalted – Priates with an anime feel to it.
- Runequest with Call of Cthulhu – Fantasy with horrors from beyond.
On second thoughts, maybe that last ones just Ravenloft after all…..
