This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Ignore the rule about characters fumbling their passion roll going mad and running in to the woods. Instead just set a couple of their traits to 18 based on the thing that they were trying to be passionate about.

I suspect that I'll probably simplify the rules a bit here and there, but I haven't really decided yet.

I'm looking into some of the old Pendragon campaign suggestions now (1st ed and 4th). Lots of good info here, but the start of the campaign does seem a bit dull (getting to know your area and jousting a bit, perhaps hunt down some bandits that aren't really fleshed out). It may be a good way to start developing your skills etc., but in my experience, you need something a bit spicier early on so that the players don't lose interest and think of it as "that boring game" later. I'll give it some thought.
