Genghiscon Wrapup – Reevaluating My Games

I know, Genghis was almost a month ago. I’ve been trying to parse this out in my mind.

I run two games at conventions right now. One shots in Serenity rpg and a satirical fantasy game in Cortex rpg. I’m having two issues. I’m running out of ideas for Serenity games and MW productions has moved away from Cortex to the more complicated Cortex Plus.

To complicate this, my Serenity games are usually full of players, and I have trouble running more than one of my fantasy game for lack of players.

Outside of the con, I’m having trouble getting players for my Serenity. It’s going into 10 years since Firefly debut on Fox and we only have a small stream of material work from, most of it fan made and it doesn’t all mesh together.

I’m not sure what I’m going to do exactly but I would like to move my fantasy game away from Cortex. I don’t like everything Savage worlds has done so I’m toying with the idea of writing my own set of rpg rules. I like rules light, fun games.

So if I do this, I’ll probably do this out in the open to allow comment. I’ll tie my fantasy world to it even though it’s gone through D&D 2nd ed, 3.0, 3.5 and Cortex. Hrm. What to call it though? Hrm.

As for Serenity, I’m not sure. I have to come up with ideas. I love running it, but I’m pushing the limits of the universe. I’m at the point where I’ll be creating the universe and I’m not sure I want to do that.
