How Vargr Play D&D
 
or at least how Vargr SHOULD play D&D. Has anyone playtested this?

Wouldn't they just use a variant of Ironclaw:D?

Pugmire would be insulting to the lupine Vargr to play it.

Ironclaw Anthropomorphic Fantasy Role-Play would be too 'furry' as some hold it. To use the word anthropomorphic would also insult the Vargr.

The Vargr might consider some converted version of 7th Sea as it has pirates on the open seas that are romanticized and even idolized.

But this topic is moot. The ever-changing racial and social, pack natures of the Vargr should preclude the need for role-playing games as we know them. Perhaps a Wafer series, where the participants slot a particular character and then act out their parts, (see Traveller5 section on Entertainment Wafers). But I digress.

Might be.

I agree, but the word becomes "lupinomorphic", instead, and then nothing changes. The rules themselves are solid, IME.

And no, I'm not a furry, unless you think being a fan of the ninja turtles and Usagi Yojimbo makes me such:D!

Frankly, I doubt that, and they don't need to have invented them.

That's definitely a possible option for the OTU!
And it would make "RPG game designer" a much more technical profession, now that I think of it:devil:.

For Vargr, RPG's would be a way to explore being a boss instead of a flunkie.

Additionally, a way to raise low Cha to mid Cha. I expect Rifts and its ilk would be popular.

I can see Vargr D&D deteriorating very quickly into a literal dogfight.

Wafer RPGs Gone Wild
 
I can see an Entertainment Wafer Series that goes horribly sideways:

When a small Pack of Vargr, crewing an ACS Far Trader, collectively slot a cast of Entertainment Wafer personalities, they get more than they bargained for. As their alter egos tell the story, the hosts find they are on the ride of their lives when the Alpha-Captain learns that this story is for real and their ship has been commandeered by the cast of the Wafers. It will be an adventure they can never forget as two stories merge into one. But how to regain control when the two realities become indistinguishable? What inner truths of the real Vargr will the Wafer characters dredge up and use in their story? Action, adventure, romance, power and an interstellar threat that no real Vargr has ever imagined culminate in this Wafer EPIC.

I like your approach:D!

Wouldn't they all roll for Aslan male characters?

Well, not everybody plays an elf in D&D, so why would the Vargr be any more homogenous;)?
