Dixie Knights

Here's a picture of some stuff from a really cool Fudge-based RPG I've been running with my son and two nephews: Dixie Knights. The basic premise is simple: "It's the Dukes of Hazzard meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer."

The campaign is set in fictional Sherwood County, U.S.A. The heroes are all members of the Hagg Clan - two brothers and a cousin, just like the real-life players. So far the place has really come to life, and we've already come to know such towns as Hog Lick, Billville and Bob's Hope; we've crossed the Apaloosa River and trudged through the Okeedokee Swamp.

So far the gang has smuggled super-charged Beefaroni, fought Klan Zombies over a treasure of Civil War-era moonshine, tangled with their undead Cousin Junior, and run afoul of Mr. Jefferson Davis himself, who is a vampire nowadays. The fun looks to continue.

Pictured is the campaign map of Sherwood County, a small GM screen I made for the game (using the liquor menu of an unnamed suburban eatery) and Connor's character sheet featuring "Cousin Virgil Stump."

It's been a great proof-of-concept and playtest, so I'm definitely using this setting for the "big group" in the future.
