Shatterzone Reprints and rebirth!
Ever since I bought the reprint hardbacks, I have been considering running this again. I really enjoyed the setting and as I read into it, the more I feel the passion to run it again. The system is pretty solid. The setting is tangible. I just need to refresh my memory.
Reading through it, considering those who were involved at the time, I can imagine some influence it had on other products that followed it, like Savage Worlds. This is a little more mechanics heavy, but just as heroic and fun. Dice exploding and card play in combat all kind of seem like a precursor to Savage Worlds. It could just be me.
I have an idea for a three part one-shot/campaign that I fleshing out now. Xenos Alpha, Beta and Delta will be the names. I will be making pre-gen’ed characters with the intention of running these at conventions.
Resurrecting “Card Flipping Combat!” I want to enhance the cards but that might be too much work. Now the question is will I get players.
