Can anyone share any plots they used (or played) in the Cadwallon setting? I don't personally care if you used the Cadwallon system itself, or just the setting in another system...I'm only interested about the plot ideas.
I'm slowly working towards getting a RPG group up and going with friends/family, and I'll be the GM. My intention is to use the Cadwallon setting, but a different game system. I haven't done anything like this in a LONG time, so I'm looking for as many crutches as I can get to help with ideas. I've got the English version of the Cadwallon Players Handbook and Secrets Vol. 1, as well as the French version of Secrets Vol. 2, which I am very slowly translating to English. So far, from a plot-ideas point of view, here's my take away from each book:
Cadwallon Players handbook - Lots of general info about the city, but not a lot of "behind the scenes" type of info. Lots of general info about the different fiefdoms of the city, which helps paint a broad picture, but doesn't give much in the way of fine details and/or motivations for the significant people in these fiefdoms.
Secrets 1 -Goes into detail about the largely unknown details about the history of the city (as a whole), and some of the modern things that would be related to that. I personally find this stuff to be the types of content that would likely be MAJOR plot points in a long-running campaign, but not necessarily something you'd focus on with "starter" characters. It's almost like "endgame" content, if you were to relate it to video-game references, in my view.
Secrets 2 - From the little I've translated so far, this books actually seems to be a very nice companion for the Players Handbook. It goes into more intimate detail about the plots of each of the fiefdoms; how people are connected, and their various motivations. I find this to be pretty useful for finding possible story ideas to play off of. It also contains a NPC Contact section that is larger (I think) than both the previous books.
But that's about all I've got. I've been watching lots of Youtube vids and listening to podcasts over the past year or so, in order to help with my overall RPG inspiration. But none of those things deals specifically with the Cadwallon setting, which is what I'm interested in exploring. So anyone who has experience RPG'ing in Cadwallon, please share the plot ideas you have explored. Even if it is just something in the book - what did you find compelling? Thanks!
