Why shouldn't it? It's a storytelling trope, and most campaigns tell a story.

Yet, the story of the campyign isn't always written in stone, neither are all the elements. As a GM I often provide several npcs or plot points that might all have the same meaning for the campaign, but connect differently to the players.

Basic example: I want the players to connect to an npc in a town so they will be more involved if something happens that threatens the town. Rather than forcing some npc on them, I try to think of several that might 'click' with the players and their characters. I don't know for sure if they will befriend the no-nonsense blacksmith, the bakers young boy that tries to sell pastries on the street, the overworked maid at the tavern etc.

When they do connect strongly to one npc, the others will fade more or less into insignificance, to something that, according to Chekhov's gun shouldn't be in the story in the first place.

It is worth it, but imho it isn't the best choice. Taking a look at the Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing or even better at Grim Dawn (still early access, updated frequently and already huge and stable) might be worth your time and money.

I wouldn't use true deities at all - all of their feuds are far older then mankind and your players might question why they would now chose to bring their feud into open battle in this fashion. Arch Devils, empyrial lords, demon princes etc. would be my choice. The difference between their power and that of a god to the mere mortal is inconsequential. They are easier to compare in their power level and their means (in the game of immortal creatures) are more limited, which might explain their unorthodox method of doing battle by possessed mortals.

Today is one of those days that has really gotten me down. I just feel after fighting (again) with my mother over trivial crap that if I had a choice I wouldn't be the gay man I am. I am so sick of being yelled at by both my parents. I'm sick of the blind hatred of my step-father. I'm sick of all the hateful comments I see on any political news site I go to. Or even online movie reviews of all things. I'm sick of the awkwardness that inevitably happens when ever I meet someone new and they find out I'm gay. I'm sick of all the people who want denounce my marriage to my husband or think it's their business to comment on it. I just really tired of it all today. These days really suck.

*Hugs* I hope you will always find strength and happiness in abundance to fight off these days.

If you enjoy nibbling on players' sheets, you might be playing a different kind of game. I hope they do laundry regularly.

How would they, if they are dead?

I second Shadowrun (the sourcebooks from former editions are still quite useful with the current incarnation). I also think the current Star Wars games by FFG do very good job at showing diversity in gender and enticity in their illustrations.

Oh most awesome Customer service, I have to bother you again.
I recieved Order #3358414 today, unfortunatly without Chris A. Jacksons excellent novel 'Pirate's Promise'. Checking my order history, I find that the physical Items of this order are listed as 'cancelled', which is a bit of a mystery to me.
Also, I am starting to get worried about Order #3318976, which hasn't arrived yet. I would be most grateful if you could look into both matters.

Thank you, oh most awesome Customer Service.

It wouldn't have been a success (at that time, might be today), and would probably have done a disservice to the military personal after the vietnam war (as the tension between veterans and war-protesters were pretty high a few years before).

It's worth noting that in David Morrell's source novel, the veteran protagonist is shot to death at the end.

To be fair, he was a lot less 'traumatized good guy' in the novel...

Ashen Stars, setting and rules (rules light, mystery and investigation are the focus of the game and the adventures)

Star*Drive and the Alternity game (should be around on the amazon Marketplace, still my SF game of choice)

Eclipse Phase

The Void - affordable and a great setting for cthulhuesque horror among the stars.

To be fair, I am not sure the american GwtDT passes the Bechdel test (a good reaso to rewatch ist, I guess), but Lord Snow wrote that it wouldn't pass the reverse test, which, considering conversations about the extendet Vanger family, about Blomquists past, etc. is highly unlikely.

edit: Are Miriam (Lisbeths lover) or Lindgren (the woman at the library) named in the American Movie, if so, it passes the test.

Kill Bill one and two.

Interestingly, Kill Bill (both of 'em) fail to pass the reverse bachdel test, because most characters are female and the movies are very focused on the main (female) character. So, no two named male characters talking to each other about something other than a woman.

Other movies that come to mind that fail the reverse test are Chicago, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (I might be forgetting something here), Easy A, the Hunger Games, the recent Gone Girl and I'm sure there are others I'm missing. If we count TV stuff too, then there's Orphan Black.

As for movies that merely pass the normal test, there are quite a lot (an annoyingly low percentage of all movies passes this test, but that still amounts to an overwhelming number).

Off the top of my head:
1) The Sound of Music (the beginning in the monastery)
2) Grease
3) Guardians of the Galaxy
4) 12 angry men

I would very much love to hear how Girls with the Dragon Tattoo fails the reverse test...

Just got it, too (Steam sale), but my harddisk is sadly the weak link of my rig (and there are several games that use a huge chunk of space - like the evil within,), so it has to wait a little longer ;-).

Wing it. Seriously. I come from a pretty large family, having four brothers and two sisters, and I can't say that we have all a similar constitution, strength, a predisposition towards science, a certain social behavior or anything else.
Yes, there are traits that run in families (and better: genetic predispositions) but not something as blunt as 'genetically predisposed to be strong, healthy, smart etc).

Grrrr...I mean, I am looking forward to it. pre ordered, pre loaded...then the game tried to secure infinite hardware space...which obviously failed. I had to remove the pre-loaded parts and re install the game from the very beginning, so I couldn't start, yet.
