With this rule firmly in place, reading about someone else’s campaign should be the equivalent to water boarding. When it comes to Clockworks though, it is the complete opposite. Clockworks is a web comic by Shawn Gaston which retells the events of the game he ran for his friends. It is also a home brew setting using the Savage Worlds RPG system. The reason I’m letting you know about all of this now is that Clockworks just turned a year old!
The cast is wonderful. Eva, Thornton, Toby, Ophelia, and Oliver are very fun characters that we are getting to learn about as the comic goes on. Except Oliver, damn him for being all mysterious and cool...or a vampire. Even more impressive then the characters are the setting. The extra information put out about the game world is deep. Shawn has done an awesome job in creating a world and one of these days I’m going to get a group together and run a game in it.
So congrats to Shawn on going a year, here’s to many more. If you’ve never heard of Clockworks, hopefully you’ll check it out. This week has been full of great fan art and character backgrounds. http://shawntionary.com/clockworks/
