So here’s a little overview of what’s currently bubbling in my head:
A game set in a world where the Roswell Incident was the site of Earth’s first extraterrestrial encounter, not a crash. Ship landed, aliens surveyed and encountered locals, contacted mothership and decided to stay. It is now the 70s or 80s (or now, not really decided). Something like District 13 meets Blaxploitation meets Alien Nation (with some Space Precinct thrown in for fun).
Roman Pathfinder, as mentioned in my last post, nominally called Republic. Still working out the kinks with different races and stuff.
A hard sci-fi game has popped up and is bubbling away, though I don’t know if anything worth talking about will come of it. It’s nothing special, just something I think would be fun.
A game centred around a Barony, or group of Baronies. Something like Game of Thrones, so I may just look at Song of Ice and Fire and hope. It’s mostly just a warcry of ‘For the Baronies!’ at present.
I’ve been thinking a lot recently about the old Cyberpunk game I played a lot of (but haven’t for about a year now). It was a hack together by a friend of the old World of Darkness system, as well as the Cyberpunk 2020 rules. He was calling it everything from Farpunk to just Punk, given his other groups had managed to get lost in space. I think really I want to resolve what was happening when we finished the session: I had been given a secret task, and then during play it became apparent I had to issue a ‘GO!’ order in front of other players. My mission: full-scale attack on a school for potentially psionic children. One of the group’s characters was also on the grounds at the time, and it became a race for the other players to stop the attack, whilst I tried to make sure they never made it.
Did I mention I was a crimelord and everyone else was a cop? Fun times.
