Next Games - Diaspora Transhuman Space

Post by cczernia » Sun Dec 27, 2009 4:59 pm

So, my idea for the next RPG is a transhuman space game using the FATE Diaspora rules.

Essentially, we won't be using a standard setting like Transhuman Space or Eclipse Phase but will build our own Transhuman setting and can borrow from whatever we want.

I wanted to get together, make characters and discuss the game some more. So, with that in mind who wants to get together on Friday Jan 8 or 22?

I went ahead and created a wiki page for our game. I've posted a few things. If you want to add anything you're more than welcome. You'll have to create an account but then you can edit or add.

Hi guys, I think we're going to need to reschedule; both Liz and I have a cold. Can we tentatively plan for the 29th?

Hi guys,
I hate to do it but I think we're gonna need to postpone again due to plumbing issues. One of our waste lines is backing up (downstairs toilet and washing machine, if you were curious) and I'm gonna be spending Friday night snaking it out.

Liz and I are both available on the 5th of February, and thanks for the well wishes JC (the ways in which this could go bad frighten me).

The porcubimmer's sitting this one out, but a few of our drivers are racing on a team started by a co-worker of Scott's girlfriend.

Ok, a little slow on the first game but everyone is together now and I feel I have a concrete idea of what is going on.

One thing I wanted to explore was the idea that each of your characters has a secret memory involving experiments on morphs during the war.

I originally thought about trying to come up with these secrets but I think you guys will have better ideas of what your characters were doing in their past than I do.

In the next game I want to try a flashback mechanic. Anytime during the game you can call for a flashback and either narrate it or set it up and we'll roleplay it out. Either way it becomes part of your back story that will impact the game. You will also gain a fate point.


Would you guys be up to playing June 4th?
