Role Playing Ideas: DC Comics' Warlord
I've always been intrigued by Mike Grell's series The Warlord, and with all of these RPG ideas floating around there I thought I would throw Warlord as an RPG world.
If you are a fan of Planet stories like Edgar Rice Burroughs' Barsoom or Pellucidar series, Leigh Brackett's Skaith series, Alan Burt Akers "Dray Prescot" series, or John Norman's Gor series; you'll enjoy The Warlord! It's definitely a Swords and Sorcery series told in comic book form. And there's plenty of fodder for role playing ideas!
The main character Travis Morgan, was a vietnam veteran fighter pilot who flies through a hole in the Earth's crust and finds himself in the underground realm of Skartaris. Where he encounters beautiful scantily clad women, evil sorcerers and monsters galore!
I'll try do do some stats for D&D in the months to come.
