WAR PANDA

First Magic World Adventure

Recommended Posts

After recently identifying Magic World as the Fantasy RPG vehicle that will allow my kids to discover the joys and delights of gaming with their imaginations I'm now in that place of where to begin.

I enjoy creating the narrative but I'd really like a module as a core inspiration as it just seems daunting to start something from scratch. 

Any advice as to any good but basic adventures to begin? I'm not too concerned with the compatibility of the system as I'm willing to strip it down and convert.

Any advice would be very welcome.

Thanks

John

I have an adaptation / update of on old introductory adventure, originally intended for the Elric! game system (Which Magic World is directly derived from) but adjusted to Magic World I could pass to you?

There's a bunch of BRP fantasy adventures available in PDF from Chaosium (various monographs, and IIRC In Search of Trollslayer adventure are still available. Plus there's Fishsinger's Daughter in the Magic World Quickstart.

Most fantasy adventures that don't rely on combat grind to get through can be adapted to MW - pure Dungeon Crawling tends to be problematic in most version of BRP unless one fiddles with the resource economy a lot, so classic (A)D&D modules in that mode would need a bit of careful thought but its certainly do able.

Cheers,

Nick

I have been having a terrible time finding good "short" low fantasy adventures (10 hours or so) for any game system. Not because there aren't any but rather it takes forever to review the options. Hopefully you aren't as picky as me :-). I do highly recommend "In Search of the Trollslayer" though!  My group loved it!

Nick, I'd really appreciate you passing that on! From what I understand Elric and MW are very similar so it would convert real easy too!

 Trollslayer and Fishsinger's Daughter! Great, I will check these out. 

Thanks again!

Unfortunately I probably am :D Staging it for the kids means my expectations are not that high but it also leads to complexly considerations. If this goes well though I'd probably run a game for my adult COC group too. 

Another vote for Trollslayer means its probably become my first adventure. Thanks again guys
