Drakesdoom campaign frames – which would you prefer?

I’m really enjoying the shared supers game. I haven’t forgot all about my fantasy setting Drakesdoom and have been giving some thought to campaign frames to set for any future game in the F20esque wild west of the Midmark. In general I think I would co-opt the team building Dramasystem method of determining the relationships […]

Paneskit was invaded by Ishamli invaders (a rival religion to Adrianism) around 300 years ago who converted most of the tribes. The die-hard Adrianists fled into the […]
