So finally going to get this tabled and my idea that seems to work wickedly is to combined War of the Worlds with Lovecraft mythos and have it all take place in the Ghosts of Albion world with a few minor adjustments. I'm treating the martians as a form of Shoggoth. Their technology is bio mechanical so the tripods are alive. More like mounts to the "martians". I will build it around the initial invasion as it happens in the novel and then spread out into our own story as it goes on. Should be kick ass! ULLA!
