It looks like, barring a disaster–which is always possible!–that the Ottawa Warband will reassemble. We won’t be continuing the True20 Viking campaign. While many of the original players will return, I’ve got something else I’ve promised to run that has the majority excited.
I got a review PDF copy of Mutants & Masterminds 2nd edition from Green Ronin. After a quick read through, I went and bought the book. I’m going to use M&M to run a Mundus Novit campaign using the Osiris Files. This is going to do a few things–test drive M&M and the Osiris Files, and hopefully publicize Mundus Novit.
While the Ottawa Warband podcast doesn’t have a huge audience, it has some. The actual play of the Osiris Files can help GMs of both those products and Mundus Novit to get an idea of some of the things that can be done. It won’t be comprehensive, of course. This is going to be a muted supers game, one without capes and masks. Mundus Novit can do that, it can do outright supers, it can also do other stuff, like espionage.
We’ll see how things turn out. I’m excited to run this, and I hope the players enjoy it. Perhaps we’ll return to the Viking True20 campaign in the future. Perhaps something else will strike my fancy. Based on past history, the most likely event will be the collapse of the gaming group and other dry period for RPing.
