Hello Savages,
Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale...

I have this idea running through my brain to run a game based off of Gilligan's Island for an upcoming convention, but I don't really have any ideas other than that.

I'm looking for some ideas to spark my imagination. I'm thinking it should be Horror/Comedy. Maybe run in Realms of Cthulhu.

I plan to post the characters once I get them ready. I have a few ideas for the edges and hindrances for the characters.

Someone ran Savage Gilligan at Gen Con. I can't remember his name right now (but I can see his face... ARRGGH!).

I hope he sees this. That would have been a fun game to play in. I'm not sure why this came to mind, but I hope I can get it together.

If you're going to run a Gillian's Island game then you HAVE to use these paper miniatures!

I played in a Gilligan's Island game at Gencon this year but it was the Unisystem not Savage Worlds. It was a lot of fun, everyone got into character. I played Thursten Howell.

The premise was some natives captures Lovie, Thursten's wife (she was an NPC), and we had to go find her before she was sacrificed to a volcano. The natives were trying to perform some ritual to some crazy god. Really fun game of comedy, action and horror.

My favorite part while playing Thursten was throwing a stack of money at a native to distract him, then realizing what I did spent the next round trying to pick it up.

You could even use the Super Powers Companion to run an adventure during the time when they all ate that irradiated food and got super abilities. Mr. Green

I played the Savage Worlds Gilligans Island at GenCon, run by Jason Ivey. We crashed aboard the island and soon after fought a wild boar. My character, the Millionaire's cousin (all characters were androgynous), was an olympic athlete and killed it with a javelin throw called shot to the eye! We slept that night and went in search for Gilligan who went missing. Turns out that he put on some ancient Incan headdress that made him shoot lightning bolts and summon mummies. In the end though, we saved Gilligan, repaired the ship, and completed our three hour tour Smile

Fun was had by all! It was great!

Thunderforge- Do you know Jake? Do you know how I might contact him? I would love to talk with him about his game.
