comment Film Noir D&D Setting
I liked Noir. It had a large background and was well researched. I cannot comment on the rule set since I did not even bother reading it.

@TWWombat: I have been running and playing in systemless games for about 15/20 years now. It does work well.

comment How do I construct an individual session as part of a larger campaign?
+1 I used to do things like that before I swapped to what I do now. I found that it took too long and I did not have the time to do a good job of it.

"No plan of operations extends with certainty beyond the first encounter with the enemy's main strength" -- Helmuth von Moltke the Elder, Prussian Chief of Staff under Bismark during the Franco Prussian war. I do not recall a similar paraphrase from Sun Wu but it has been some time since I read it.
