some nasty **** is about to go down!
It was one of the things I haven't decided yet, and wanted to ask people about. I had ideas on having them already met a like-minded, humanoid species ala the Assari from Mass Effect.
I guess it would depend on how many people wanted to play as aliens.
I'm up for it.
So, I had a thought today. What if we revived the Hype Murder Mystery RPG? I mean, it had a solid group of players and a good story. It just kinda teetered off in the end with no updates from the GM. We could set it in a new location, new players, and more violence.
I liked that game. Short, simple, and to the point without any real complication required.
never heard of it but i love thoe kinds of movies, and i love the game clue lol
Basically, the GM randomly chooses one of the players to be the killer, and we play as ourselves in a situation where one of us is killing all the others. The goal is to survive long enough to figure out who the killer is and stop him. The longer we take, the more people die, with a clue left behind with each death, and possibly some ways to defend ourselves/kill each other.
In the first game, we all woke up locked inside an airport. We found Sensei (our GM) brutally murdered. Every few days, Sensei would have a vote on who we thought the killer was. We pm'd him our guesses. If we guessed wrong, we became a potential victim, randomly chosen to possible be killed next.
It should also be noted that, to keep the killer's identity a secret, the GM would traditionally be the one to write the actual kill posts. You'd usually find out about your perilous demise through reading the IC thread, which is always fun to discover.
I'll never forget Spike's words when you were blown up.
"Gore! Glorious gore!"
still sounds like fun, though, is there a link to the old one(s) so i know how to play a little bit better?
ok im in
Count me in. I loved that rpg and was always alittle disappointed that it petered out before the story could be resolved.
Who would be interested in a Marvel Noir game?
So I take it that's a nobody?
I've never read Noir anything
I wasn't planing on going off of established continuity. Just keeping the basic 1920s/30s setting, along with the more realistic universe.
i dont know what nior is is what im saying, but if thats tha concept, sound interesting
Noir means "black" in French but usually it refers to the dark crime/detective films of the 30's and 40's. Think Humphrey Bogart.
I would be in.
I know we're still a ways off from getting this whole RPG thing settled, but I have a few ideas for short-term RPGs kicking around in my head. Figured to just air them out now and get some opinions.
The first is the Marvel 1960's RPG MB and I tried to get started earlier this year. It didn't work out like we'd hope, so now that could be a decent shot to get it going again.
Another RPG is one I'd like to do a bit more than the Marvel one right now. It'd be a character-driven based murder mystery RPG in the same vein as Twin Peaks and the Danish TV show, The Killing.
A horrific takes place in a small-town and everyone in suspect as the investigation continues and some of the town's secrets begin to see the light of day.
The 60's RPG, you know what characters you can play and the basic premise. With the murder one, you can play anyone inside the town and give them your own backstory. I'd naturally like to have a few key citizens to help drive the story. Police chief, mayor, victim's family members, etc.
Both would be short term, the 60's RPG covering hotspots of the decade in one season and the murder one taking place over a month or two of in-game time.
You know what would be cool about the 60's game? If it started with Kennedy's declaration about putting a man on the moon, and ended with Apollo 11's landing.
How great would it be to start on a note of such hope and promise, and end on a historical moment that showed everyone that anything is possible.
