Note: I'm not an English native speaker (French here), so my English might not be perfect. I should be good enough to communicate properly. Be indulgent please. I also used the French edition of the book, some variation may appears for some terms I think.
Note2: I know the subject is 10 months old - anyway, it seems the right place to introduce the campaign I'm working on and collect some feedback from the community.
Regarding the map I'm using, I followed the tutorial on Youtube shared previously and create a map in our own town here (Grenoble, France). I found it funny to put my players in a post apocalyptic version of the city we live in.
We created the Ark itself with my playere last week. It's an old commercial center with a small alley of various shops, a pretty large parking lot and a second floor that were offices in past time. The ark is mostly controlled by 4 bosses (one is a player - with a small band of 8 peoples and the others PCs). The others are:
- A cultist, convinced that he is the prophet that will lead the mutants to Eden. He is megalomaniac and dangerously fanatical. The symbol of the cult is the an old Neon Sign from the commercial center representing the letter "E". He converted about a third of the storage section as a church to the "Stars god that will leads him to Eden"
- A "humanist" mutant, wanting to create a better future for is followers. Hardworking dude, empathic and open to diplomacy more than violence. However,II'm planning to turn him in a revolutionary (wanting to free all slaves) pretty fast in the campaign. He is using a part of the old office section as headquarters
- A brutal and ruthless women, using violence and fear to control her small empire but it's also a business women and she will do what it's needed to keep the Ark alive. Her headquarters is on the parking lot, using two old school bus as "offices" for is business. She is also methodic and rules is band like a "company" (a pretty violent one...)
- My player (a she), is a reasonable human being and she wants to climb the ladder of power mainly for her own benefits. Her headquarters is an old shop of the commercial gallery where the metal curtain can still be used (manually of course).
That's it for now, if you have idea on how to start the first scenario, I would be thankful.
