For the first new years resolution, I would like to inform everyone that I will be play testing The Dresden Files Roleplaying Game. I don’t know much about the game other than it is a dark fantasy in a contemporary setting. The system uses the Fate version of the Fudge system. A system I have never tried so it will be interesting to play.
Our particular game will be set in Pittsburgh amidst the declining steel industry and the current economic recession. We are still in the preliminary stages as we are learning the rules and this will be the game masters first foray into running a game.
I have watched two of the episodes of the Dresden Files TV Show, and I have been informed they do not do justice to the series; which is probably why the show was cancelled in the first season. The game master ensures me that the game will have a much darker and grittier feel.
My character will be an vampire infected human, conflicted with the blood lust urges of becoming a full vampire and deprecating desire to retain his humanity. I find the character concept intriguing as well as the creators take on the different vampire ‘courts’. Ironically (or maybe not), I have never really been interested in playing Vampire, the Masquerade. After a few sessions, I will try to revisit the entry and give my opinion of the Fudge system.
