Appendix N has become sort of standard in RPG’s. As a GM, I find it to the quickest and easiest way for my to communicate to players about a campaign is going to be about. Plus for me, it’s a good place to start brainstorming and looking for inspiration. I think a list of ten is a sweet number. Too few and limit yourself too much. Too many and you tend to lose focus. Of course, your mileage may vary on this.
To start off this little discussion, I’ll throw out a couple of my own.
I’m currently running a Dresden Files Campaign. So here’s what I wrote up for my Appendix N.
The Dresden Files (Duh.)
Buffy The Vampire Slayer/Angel
Lilith Saint Crow’s novels (Jill Kismet & Dante Valentine)
One of the games that really has my interest and is still on the horizon is Machinations of the Space Princess. So far it sounds like a SciFi game that I can really get into. So here’s a quick list for my inspiration on ideas for that:
Pitch Black/Chronicles of Riddick
So there you go, share, discuss, contemplate.
