Okay my head is spinning with potential ideas that for some reason the darn thing won't quit churning them out. So here goes-
- Star Wars only this is set 5,000 years in the future. There are no Force opposites - no Jedi, no Sith; only The Grey. So players can pick and choose both light and dark side abilities. You will help the Galactic Republic stop an extra-galactic invasion from various races, all of whom will be connected. For fun, I will allow races from other franchises, such a Yuatja, or Vulcans. More for fun (this is why we're doing this right?) than anything else.
- Four Galaxy Saga. Each player will take the role of either one person, or a small team; as you explore the galaxies either through portal, gate, or other method. This will be take place in a bespoke universe and will include the likes of Alien, Prometheus, Babylon 5, Star Trek, Stargate and Eclipse Phase. You can either be human, augmented, a sleeve of some kind, or preternatural. Not sure whether to make you all part of one agency or rival agencies. This will get far more input from me as I tell you what you will find and your job is to write it up.
- Third idea is a conspiracy one, where you will take the role of agents of Torchwood as you battle alien threats, and other agencies on Earth such as Delta Green, Aegis and many, many others. Again your character need not be human, but you must look it. This will draw from Conspiracy X, Nephilim RPG, and a few others.
- Urban Fantasy. Could tie it in with option 3, but we'll see. In this you play preternatural beings, but the twist they must be scientific, by that I mean no undead vampires; they breath and can bleed out albeit with extreme difficulty. There will also be choices of werewolf, immortal, and a few others. This would require the most work on my part and would take a lot longer to get set up.
- Or my last idea. Is again Jedi, or Sith, end up on a fantasy planet, except they would be stranded in somewhere akin to China / Japan. Players will be forced to deal with others many of whom will possess Wuxia type skills, examples would be: Crouching Tiger, Shinobi Heart Under Blade, Zu Warriors (although this is a bit over the top), Ashura.
So which would people prefer?
