Tweaking Old Skull Stuff

Once again. No Secret about which games I like and I’ve really gotten the bug about the stuff from Old Skull Publishing. They really have hit my itch on the game front with an old-school feel, rules efficient, and implied settings that are just different enough to make them interesting.
So why am I doing this post? Well, I had some extra time to think about how easily hackable they are and came up with a couple of ideas that would on take some minor house ruling.
I’ve been working on a campaign for Dark Streets & Darker Secrets to run it more urban fantasy type vein. But of course I also got to thinking if you dropped Gifted characters then you’d have something along a traditional horror game (and probably a large PC body count but that comes with genre). So instead Slayers like Buffy, you’d have character more like Kolchak. Plain old mortals fighting against the darkness.

I can’t write this post without also mentioning Solar Blades & Cosmic Spells. This is a real roller coaster of a game. The implied setting is very much like Heavy Metal. It’s crazy gonzo and just a bit out there. The Chaos Grenade did a take on Dark Sun (of D&D fame). So thought to myself what else? An idea came to mind and my google fu may be week but it would make a great Thundarr campaign!

This really would take hardly any house ruling and you could easily grab some stuff from Mutant Future and peg on there.
So many ideas. So many games. So little time.
