For Big Bad Con this weekend, I have scheduled a game that uses Robin D. Laws’ DramaSystem from his new role-playing game Hillfolk (Pelgrane Press), along with a series pitch from Emily Care Boss (also published in Hillfolk) called “Colony Wars.”
One of the handouts I created is a collection of photos that can be used represent characters, especially on the relationship map that is one of the core elements of the game. I used celeb photos, so you can play a little game trying to see how many you can recognize. My friends will also spot several of these from other games where I’ve used them. As usual, I was trying to go for diversity and balance; comments welcomed.
Do you know, real people smile too much in their photos? It’s awfully hard to get that “Oh shit, we’re about to impact an asteroid!” look outside movies.
