Mass Effect Invades Dungeons And Dragons With New Homebrew Adaptation
Have you ever been deep into a campaign of D&D with your friends when you thought things could be made so much better with space? Luckily, you are not alone as a new homebrew for Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition brings BioWare’s Mass Effect to the action.
“The Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game is about storytelling in worlds of swords and sorcery and Mass Effect 5e takes that storytelling to the stars,” reads the description. “Both shares elements with childhood games of make-believe. Like those games, D&D is driven by imagination. It’s about picturing the alien landscape beneath the two-sunned sky and imagining how an N7 soldier might react to the challenges that scene presents.”
Instead of a Dungeon Master running the campaign, this role will be known as the Galaxy Master in Mass Effect 5e. ” The GM creates missions for the characters, who navigate its hazards and decide which paths to explore,” reads the site. “The GM might describe the entrance to Osiris Station, and the players decide what they want their operatives to do. Will they jump down to the hanger bay? Propel themselves with jetpacks? Or use a biotic’s powers to increase their mass, “affixing” themselves to the surface of the asteroid?”
Needless to say, if you’re looking to keep up the Mass Effect action outside of video games, this appears to be the perfect way to do it. For those wanting to jump in, the player’s manual can be found right here.
