Hi there,

I went and did it. We're starting a Planescape game, using the Hero Wars system, or, if you like, we're playing Hero Wars using the Planescape setting.

It's been a big job, but worth it. I have tons of stuff to make available to people who are interested in how I did it so far. For now, I'll say that after reading the main Planescape boxed set, it seemed as if HW was written FOR it - even though we know that's not true. It just fits so amazingly well.

I think that HW is the best system available for playing setting-heavy fantasy with a thematic core, whether it's based on intellect, raw emotion or symbolism, or any combination of the two.

Best,
Ron

Okay, that's it--I'm moving to Chicago.

Planescape is one of my alltime favorite settings. Philosophy, weirdness, subjectivity, conspiracy, Xaositects, & Tony Diterlizzi art--guh fuh wuh gubble gub. I love it. Add in Hero Wars & all I can say is double-fucking-wow.

I'd love to hear about the set-up & how play goes.

I just have to warn you; thats how I got back into D&D: I followed a message on the Everway board by Quickleaf about using Planescape as a setting for Everway.. the rest is history.
