Adventure, Drama, Comedy, Whatever else happens...
Im just checking to see if anyone would be interested in a game or two I've been thinking of. Not gonna write way too much, just because I'm used to not getting any responses on anything I put up, so I'm not gonna waste all that time anymore. I'm hoping to get a couple responses so I know whether or not to proceed forward. I'd be looking for something in the casual range, a paragraph or two, as far as the posts go. Not kid friendly style gaming. Cussing, fighting, sex, drugs, and rock and roll, all that good stuff. But also maybe not taking ourselves too seriously. Its a role playing "GAME" after all, right? Anyway, on to the heart of the matter. Here are some ideas:
Typical party of adventurers story, but with an emphasis on free-play, and growth of characters. All the characters meet up, and undertake some minor quest, wherein they encounter a potential threat to the world as they know it. An evil cult is hoarding artifacts of great power, and using them to ressurrect some very old, and very dangerous beings. As the party gains skill, the quest would also involve things like political intrigue, and stopping a few other conspiracies if they desired to get involved. Afterall, there's never just one thing going on in a world at one time. Magic users and non magic users are battling for political supremacy, Humans are involved in racial disputes with other races, There's a new King, and not everyone's happy about it. The party members would eventually gain some kind of reputations, and influence with officials. Gain wealth, status, influence, and the world will respond to their decisions as best I can make it do so. Also, I wouldn't mind having help running this if anyone wanted to.
A pair of private investigators (though there's room for other characters, like consultants and police and stuff) gets hired to take on a seemingly inconsequential case. A lady wants to know if her husband is cheating on her or not. But what they find out leaves them in some serious hot water. Somehow, they've run afoul of some heavy hitters in the organized crime business. And there's only one way out now: to take down their new playmates before they get taken down themselves. But nothing is what it seems. The plot twists and turns this way and that, and people you thought you knew, turn out to be more than you could imagine. (As a side note, I'm also toying with throwing some kind of occult/supernatural twist into this, wherein even what isn't what it seems isnt what it seems, but I'm not sure whether or not that'd add to, or hurt the story I'd like to tell.)
A non-traditional take on the japanese tokusatsu genre, preferably something in the sentai or metal hero subgenres. Different kind of character castings, where maybe our characters arent so upstanding and noble. Not so much with all the moral lessons. Throw in a good healty amount of ultraviolence and personal problems, mix it all together with a little raunchy comedy, and stir.
Some kind of family in crisis story. But not like a "we're getting a divorce" every day crisis. Like a national, or at least reigonal crisis, where people could die. Basically, a family goes on some kind of regular vacation, like a camping trip or something that requires isolation and being away from the easy convenience of a city. A natural disaster strikes the area, (But definitely not the zombie apocalypse cause that's too played out for my tastes) and they have to work together to do every day things like find food and stuff, along the way back to civilization. In real time who knows how long it'd take, but the story would really only last like a week maximum of their time in that world, because even that's stretching plausability to its breaking point, and I'd like to keep this one semi-realistic.
morning bump since i made this late last night
evening bump before giving up
Up for the first idea, I'd like to at least try and give you a chance.
