I want to keep my online group going, as it’s the best bunch I’ve ever run a game for. They didn’t all know each other when we started, and I was the one person who knew everyone, and figured they would play really well together. Turns out I was right, and this is the most fun I’ve ever had running a game. I call them my dream team, and I mean it wholeheartedly.

As for products, Blade Runner is my main one, followed closely by whatever Design Mechanism puts out this year. I would really, REALLY love to get my hands on the espionage book for Mythras, but I’ve never seen any estimates for when that’ll be done, so it might still be another year or more.

And I want to finish writing the last novel in my current trilogy and move on to the next book.

For 2022 I am looking forward to Hyperborea 3e, painting miniatures, and more face to face gaming. If we are wishlisting in this thread, I would love to be a player in one of my favorite settings.
Which settings are those, just out of curiosity?

Spinning up To Go Boldly - a space exploration campaign set in the same 'verse as my other two S&V games. This campaign sets the scene for a 'void' left after the collapse of a megacorporation around 120 years ago.

There's a Star Trek FITD hack that I think I can adapt for this, sans the Trek-isms. However, as this is not Star Trek, we're not under any obligation to split our infinitives.

Will there be sex moves for the inevitable rainbow flavours of damsel in distress? That would be my prime directive...

I mean Kirking isn't mandatory, but I'm sure we can arrange something ...

Many the Kirkings.... :grin:

Well, the current list of alien species in the setting is -
  • Aferas - feathered klingons
  • Garps - newts meets jawas meets kerbals
  • Morlocks - space orcs with chromatophores in their skin
  • Sljee - cthulhoid with way too many tentacles but otherwise quite amiable if not terribly well suited to prevailing ergonomics
  • Squids - amphibious critters, also with far too many tentacles and strange views on property and ownership stemming from their evolutionary background as scavengers.
  • Symbiotes - humans infected with a symbiotic algal life form with some rudimentary intelligence.
Take your pick.

I see no problems for Kirk. All valid targets

I'm kinda hoping to go to a convention or two next year.

As for games... I dunno, actually. Probably play a lot more Thirsty Sword Lesbians, maybe run something.

More wishlisting for 2022, I would like to try a Powered by the Apocalypse or Forged in the Dark game such as Tremulus as a player under an experienced GM.

Addendum: I'm trying to find a GM for a particularly... particular 3.PF campaign. I'd like to see it happen: High Point Buy Gestalt, but no core classes and no full spellcasters, and at least one of your classes (at each level) has to be some hardcore gonzo bullshit, preferably from a third-party publisher-- like the Ultimate Wilderness Shifter is too normal, but the Oozemorph or the (Legendary) Protean Mutant is just about right.

Hoping to find someone soon, but now it's got its hooks in me and I'll be trying to make this happen until it happens.

Kinda want to play a Multiman|Living Bomb. Like if Jamie Madrox were an arcane suicide bomber. Or a Luchador|Archaeologist.

I don't know what system I want to use, because... well, I'm not a fan of any of them... but I want to get into a Star Wars game like the one I tried to run, where Star Wars is more of a... fantasy subgenre than a specific setting and franchise. Like if Lucas had sold it to Hasbro instead of Disney.

You know, maybe I'd like to buy all of the official Barbarians of Lemuria settings and play in all of them. Especially Mutanimals, and Dogs of WAR, and maybe cross them over for literal dogs of war.

I'd like to gin up some kind of functional BECMI/Player's Option hack--- probably just rebuilding the BECMI class system using Player's Option and B/X Class Builder-- and run a Spelljammer game that doesn't crash and burn within the first month.

We also have Jewelspider coming out some time next year. (From what Dave has said, it's not so much a new version of Dragon Warriors as a spiritual successor. Pretty sure it's going to still be Legend though).

By next year, I assume you mean this year?

I cut my teeth on Dragon Warriors, back in 1986. I don't use the rules or the setting anymore, but the *feel* of the world as conveyed through the scenarios influenced my approach to GMing.

Oops, yes, 2022!

And the feel seems to be the main thing the new game is keeping, while trying to remove the more obvious D&Disms.

There's a game called Carbon Grey, that uses WEG D6 engine, I backed on Kickstarter coming out sometime in Q1. That's probably the main one for me.

I'm also super keen to pick up the new Talislanta, assuming it's released in 2022. I'm even willing to forgive them for getting my Talislanta dirty with 5e stats (it'll be dual statted, making it a must-buy for me).

Talk for me too. I was hoping it would be on KS in Dec but nope.
Tal not Talk. Stupid autocorrect.

I am hoping it won’t be a regular supers RPG like M&M but a street level vigilante game. D20 isn’t my favourite by a long shot, but based on my True20 experiences I could see it working for something along those lines relatively well.

To be released: Blade Runner RPG (Free League) and Dolmenwood Campaign Book (Necrotic Gnome).

To be delivered: The Traveller Book and Classic Traveller Facsimile Edition (GDW/FFE), Call of Cthulhu Classic (Chaosium), Root (Magpie Games), Hyperborea 3e (NWA), The One Ring 2e Core, The Shire, Ruins of the Lost Realm and other stuff (Free League).

Other stuff: I have my eyes on a copy of Flashing Blades (FGU) and Pavillon Noir (BBE), plus supplements. I also might check the new Traveller Update and eventually the Pirates of Drinax Campaign (Mongoose).

On a personal note, I wish to manage to keep playing TOR in person with my wife and her siblings and to succeed at making work an online open sandbox for Classic Traveller on a home made sub-sector and campaign setting.

Diogo Nogueira told me back in 2020 that he was done with Sharp Swords & Sinister Spells 2e, and that it was on the publisher to get it out. So it's a huge assumption that his publisher is going to pull their thumbs from their asses in 2022 and do their damned jobs, but that's definitely a game I'm looking forward to this year.

- Getting the new Fading Suns starship book so, you know, it’s more playable as a spacefaring game. Rather than having to hand wave space travel and combat.

- Getting hard copies of Hyperborea.

- Picking up the last couple of Castles & Crusades books I need for a complete set.

- Getting a halfway decent price on all of my D&D 5E books and not looking back at them.

- Finishing off my PoD collection of Planescape stuff to fill the 5E hole in my game shelf, and starting AD&D 2E Planescape.
So all I need now is a print copy of Monsters & Treasures for a complete C&C collection. Paid for and waitong on Fading Suns and Hyperborea. And decided that the PDFs are good enough for most of the books for Planescape to run it. The vanity project of collecting can wait, and I will just pick up the PoD campaign setting book to use at the table.

Funny thing is nobody wants to give me all that much for 5E books so I will have to cut my losses somewhere. Maybe Noble Knight at this point, because as hot as everyone around here is to play 5E and only 5E ever, they don’t want to give more than $5 a pop for books that have rarely left the confines of my shelf and still in mint condition.

The biggest thing is going to GaryCon and gaming face to face. I just hope my DMing skills are up to par...
technically I got my C&C alternate covers this year, so that was a nice present to myself.
then I have my own projects I have coming out, which I'm excited about as well. As an indie publisher, I think something might be off with me because every time I get art back from a freelancer, it feels like Christmas lol.

The main thing for 2022 is bringing the Masks of Nyarlathotep campaign to a conclusion. The two investigators are mopping up some loose ends in Egypt at the moment and are yet to visit Australia. They have set up things in Shanghai so that a big setpiece finale is a matter of lighting a fuse. Their problem is the ticking clock as they now only have just over four months before a critical date so it's likely to be tight, tense and may well require a tough decision or two to accomplish all that they want. It's likely to end this year after two years of online play and it's been really good; best of all, through caution and some extremely well considered play the two players both still have their original characters so the stakes and investment are sky high. Not to mention that one of the investigators has taken it upon themselves to learn some spells where the other has been vehemently destructive towards anything Mythos related so there's a small degree of inner friction which may yet play out on the road to the climax.

My other campaign is Eternal Lies and because that is more sporadic in terms of sessions it will probably linger into '23. I am looking forward to running this some more as it's very different to Masks and allows me to push the grit lever far harder.

I'd like to get a few short game runs in the gaps between the EL sessions if I can, maybe a visit back to some Delta Green.

In terms of purchases, the big one for me is The One Ring; it's possibly the only one as I'm about to have a shelf clearance and have very definitely adopted a policy of buy to run going forwards, which means essentials only.
