Still working on the PCs for my first GenCon adventure.
System. I’ve settled on Savage Worlds. I was seduced by a Star Wars/Dungeon World hack that came out last week, but ultimately Savage Worlds won out. I think it was the ease of making the PCs and the pre-made zombies. Also, I have heard that there is a new science fiction supplement coming out for Savage Worlds.
The only disadvantage I have is that I need to create the races for the PCs and any NPCs. Thankfully not hard in Savage Worlds.
After trying to create each PC by hand I realized that they are all Rebellion Special Forces and created a package for them.
2 Fighting d6
2 Shooting d6
1 Knowledge Rebellion d4
1 Knowledge Tactics d4
1 Notice d4
The scenario didn’t seem right for “new recruits”, so they will start Seasoned with two additional steps.
The list of roles so far includes:
Leader, Second in Command (driver/communications), Sniper, Tech, Medic, and Heavy Weapons.
One of them will be a droid and at least two are non-human.
Next up – personalities!
