The Romance of Golden Star - George Griffith's novel about reincarnated mummies
Pharos the Egyptain - Guy Boothby's novel about a kind of reanimated mummy, only not exactly
The Vampire - a play based on Polidori's novel
Stuff I can get if I choose this option:
She, She and Alan - which I think are the two Rider Haggard novels about She, unless there are others I've missed. There are already several e-texts, so I'd probably link to them rather than scanning my own.
Valdur the Oft-Born - Griffith's serial reincarnation novel, I have a copy but it'll be a swine to do the OCR since the print is awful.
The Wandering Jew, Varney the Vampire, and The Vampire - again, texts are on line.
The Flying Dutchman - pretty sure this is on-line too.
So no real shortage of source material, the question is whether people would actually find this interesting enough if I wrote it. Trouble is that the campaign would mostly be historical / fantasy, without many SF elements, which isn't my favourite genre to write.
So - let's have a little survey...
Would you be interesting in an RPG campaign about immortals?
Would you prefer complete historical accuracy or some fantasy elements?
If I was writing this my main inspiration would be
If something else, what?
