All For One, and One For All! (Encore!)

For those who read my blog, most of you know that I am a historical fan (not quite a buff, I'm afraid). :) My favourite periods of history are the Roman Empire, 17th Century France, and the Norse period of the 500s through 600s.

From a roleplaying game point of view, I've not been able to generate any interest in a Roman-themed rpg for some years now, though I've kept my copies of the Fvminata: Armed with Lightning RPG (both copies of them), and now that the game appears to be going Savage Worlds, I'm pretty sad. I've done the 17th Century France game with both Flashing Blades and En Garde!, but my favourite game by far for the genre has been All For One: Régime Diabolique from the folks at Triple Ace Games. I ran the game back in 2012 for several months - and even ran a home-made adventure at CanGames 2012 called "Une Abondance de la Folie" (An Abondance of Madness), the first adventure in a proposed trilogy based around cheese, chocolate, and wine - but abandoned it when the Sunday gaming group just couldn't seem to handle actually playing the game. I switched games historically, and ran the Yggdrasill RPG from Cubicle 7, and have run that for a couple of years. I've enjoyed running Yggdrasill, but recently I realised something.

While the Roman period is my favourite historical period, I find that 17th Century France (and the whole business of The Three Musketeers) is my second favourite - and I want to run a game during that period again. Therefore, I've decided to no longer run the Yggdrasill rpg, and will be returning to the All For One: Régime Diabolique RPG when I'm ready to run the (pseudo-historical) genre again. However, I think that I've decided on at least one scenario that I will run at CanGames 2015 for sure. :)

All For One, and One For All! :)
