Best friends would work fine with a D&D setting, and I'd be keen to run it. I could also do a hack of Silver Kiss that might not suck?

I am keen to play in Dawson's Keep and also moar Fiasco always so I'd be in for this con. Can't offer a house though, since I don't have one XD

There was a D&D setting for Toon in which the PCs explored the inside of a pinball machine Very Happy

The more I think about it, the more this makes sense, especially as in my head it plays out with the classic Warner Bros characters. Daffy Duck, Foghorn Leghorn and Elmer Fudd vs. the tomb. Gygax's deathtraps as I imagine them would work eerily well with "ACME" stamped on the side.

More ideas madness:

- Freemarket, exploring a portion of the station filled with traps and monsters by a crazy first generation freemer.
- Geiger Counter, for another way to take on Tomb of Horrors.
- My Life With Master, minions of the villain who delved the dungeon in the first place.
- A Taste for Murder, the most twisted family of adventurers ever finally go too far
- Cat, the cats have to go into the sewers to stop a nest of monsters
- 3:16, but with adventurers instead of space marines and monsters instead of aliens

Hot War - a city cut off from the rest of the world by supernatural forces, members of the different adventurers guilds band together to address the problems, only to be pulled apart by factional infighting.

I was pondering A Dungeon of Mirrors. Smile It'd be so easy!

I had thought of this one a while back, the roles would be a simple translation.

Sounds like a Lovecraftian adventure might work: great uncle Cedrick, Paladin most righteous, has recently died and has bequeathed his rambing country manor to you and your adventuring party....

Nice!

Superheroe games could work pretty easily too, given a supervillain who decides to build an underground fortress and stock it with monsters.

Hi all,

I haven't played many indie games and some of them I've got no idea about.
However, I've played DnD for ages and this idea sounds pretty cool . . . Oh, by the way, did I mention I've got a dirty big warehouse in Seaview (BYO chairs) Smile
