PAST, PRESENT, OR FUTURE?
WHEN IS YOUR FAVOURITE GAME SET?
Let’s approach today’s prompt like this: Yesterday I called out my perfect game as being our own Occult Detective RPG, so with that in mind, a modern setting is my preferred choice, although it works fine in any era.
There is something to be said about a pre-cell phone time frame. It’s Connor’s preferred choice. You have to craft a different sort of story when your characters have cell phones readily available, that’s for sure.
I like anything from 1900 to the present. For one thing, atmosphere is everything, and being able to take the world outside your window and turn it into an adventure is gold.
One Halloween I ran an Occult Detective game where the players were themselves and what they had for gear was whatever they had on them or was in their car at that moment.
Really changed the perspective of the players, and afforded me plenty of tools to work with.
Modern it is. How about you?
