Group Topic

PvP! Is it good? Is it bad? Does it make for a long-term campaign? What goes do it well (e.g.paranoia)?

    It’s me again, chiming in on your group topic! Just wanted to point out that the Smallville RPG by Margaret Weiss is designed for CvC. Note that’s Character vs. Character, not Player vs. Player.

    I wanted to make the distinction because I’m currently in a PbP, and me and the other players are constantly looking for reasons to get into conflict. CvC is like a car wreck…you just can’t look away! It’s a great game, and a wonderful system that encourages CvC in a good way.

    During each conflict, the players are in total agreement about the conflict, and they ALL want their characters in conflict!

      You know that is probably the phrase we should use, and the phrase we were looking for! It should really be called Character vs Character, as that is exactly what it is. Implying Player vs Player does suggest it is between two people, not two characters!

      Smallville isn’t a system I have had a chance to play (yet!) although one I would love to try. I will give it a read again and look up about its CvC stuff! Sounds very interesting!

      Thanks again! 😀

        Yeah, perhaps it should have been “how can you make CvC not become PvP?”…

    Since we started playing Smallville, I’ve relearned why I fell in love with the system in the first place. I just wish my local group would be willing to try it, but I don’t think they’re into relational drama…/sigh

    Hope y’all get to play it soon!
