Opening paragraphs of The War of the Worlds (1898)
Revue Je sais tout 1905 - la littérature fantastique et terrible
So the other day I was quietly strolling through my news feed on Facebook & the following video came up in my Godzilla movie fan group!? Now anyone that knows me knows that I'm a super fan boy when it comes to H.G. Wells War of the Worlds & Godzilla films of any era! But this video was different! How?!
Well this is perfect set up for a Troll Lord Games Victorious rpg game campaign! The appearance of the Martian's using a hyper spacial gateway to get to Earth causes an Einstein Rosen bridge to manifest in time & space as a rip in fabric of time space. Tears of this bridge cause the appearance of 20th century super heroes across America & Europe. These & other weird radiations of the coming of the Martians cause the appearance of super humans across the world. The invasion of the Martians & their machines in the skies above the Earth awakens Godzilla after centuries of slumber! The video above only takes the Martian invasion just so far. But a table top rpg can take it even further! After the initial Martian die off the weird radiations released by the appearance of the greatest of Kaiju means that others might be released! A lot of other monsters awaken to be ready for the second round of the Martian invasion!
Parties from the Victorious rpg would be part of the resistance against the Martian horde.The stats for the standard Martian tripods are found in the TLG 77051 Victorious: Hunter & Hunter Catalog.
Troll Lords TLG 77061 Victorious: Manifest Destiny has most of the action taking place in one of the greatest cities in the world of 1898 being New York! And this would be my starting point for the PC's. The skies have just darkened with the Martian's Trojan horse meteors. Powers have just started to manifest heroes & villains will be forged in the fires of the coming war! As for the stats for the King of Kaiju? Well, Troll Lords's the Amazing Adventures Manual of Monsters has exactly what you need to get something like Godzilla directly into the action! The Amazing Adventures Book of Powers can add anything you need to for all your Kaiju powered needs!
But what about the Wonderland gates that have opened across England as a result of the Martian hyperspace gates? There are now Castles & Crusades PC's spilling out from Gary Gygax's EX1 Dungeon Land module joining the resistance! It seems a certain glowing barrel in the ruins of Castle Greyhawk has attracted a bit of attention!
Heroes from beyond the pale of reality have answered the call but will they be ready?! Only you dear friends can decide. This super heroic campaign idea is being put on the back burner for the moment! But what happens when Mar's Barsoomian nations make contact with Earth for the second part of the Martian invasion?!
