Paved With Good Intentions: A Sourcebook for RPGs based in or on Jersey

And so the idea to create our own RPG sourcebook based on Jersey history, geography, sociology, politics, economics and events, has ruminated sufficiently long without any obvious problems becoming apparent to have been born here today.

Of course in seeking to achieve such a loosely defined goal the most obvious question to arise is, "Which RPG?"

Of course that defeats the idea of a modern sourcebook which is freed from the shackles of any particular rules system, I will not even select a particular era or style of RPG.

It is the mutable nature of the challenge which appeals, the Liberty to choose to blog on any subject vaguely related as the mood or events take me.

The principle motivation is the third project I have backed on Kickstarter Legacy Superhero RPG in the UK, as part of my pledge I have been given the opportunity to develop Jersey as a location for a team of Super Heroes. But in the past we have played many campaigns based here such as "Jersey by Night" a World of Darkness Campaign, Call of Cthulhu and the like.

Hopefully the blog will be easily navigable and updated on a regular basis with little vignettes from Jersey's past, present and maybe future.

Why "Paved with Good Intentions"? Well, why not. Jersey like most places is walking the gentle slope, soft underfoot with no sudden turnings, milestones or signposts. The safe road that CS Lewis talked of. Followers of my Jersey Politics Blog may recognise some recurring themes.
