Greetings! Next week I'm doing a Marvel + DC game using Basic Action Super Hero rules, on Discord. Characters may be existing ones or original [but you're limited to 11 points to start with; don't be worried, by my calculations this is what the average comic book hero should be worth.] In fact, I'll be using a few optional BASH rules, part of the point is to try them out.

You can use the Online BASH Creator for this purpose, it's free, you only need to make an account:

Please let me know if you are interested ASAP so I can adjust the story and game date accordingly.

Links to the server will be provided to applicants.

Had an idea for a Star Trek/Gundam fusion - basically, Zefram Cochrane launches the Phoenix in one of the Gundam universes, gets the Vulcans' attention, and things develop from there. Still deciding on whether to use Universal Century or Post-Disaster timeline, though.

After having noticed all the dark scifi / post apocalyptic games on the forums, I had the idea for something crazier and sillier. It's kinda similar to a game I tried to run way back, and it has a vibe kinda like a cross between Turok and the old dinosaur B-movies from the 60s and 70s.

Essentially, the characters are flung by some cataclysmic event (haven't decided the cause but I was thinking something ridiculous like a super-weapon made by dinosaur men from another dimension, or a magical comet smashing into the Earth or whatever) that suddenly sends the modern-day PCs into another world, a land that time forgot full of dinosaurs, Ice Age creatures, and Paleolithic cavepeople living together.

And the goal of the PCs being to find their way home and potentially also stop said dinosaur men from conquering both the Land that Time Forgot and also their modern Earth.

I'm not sure I'd be able to run it, or who all would be interested. I don't even have the basic plot stuff down yet. I just thought something like this would be Crazy Awesome and a big tonal shift from the depressing stuff that's on the boards right now. XD

@All Hail Thrall: That sounds like something I would join.

Now trying my hand to do an RP set in the Cold War where a mysterious group wants to start World War III by making the West and East fight each other that they wouldn't notice a terrorist group is pulling the strings. A covert unit made up of intelligence agents, military personnel (regular and special forces) and others are pulled into the covert ops war to stop this threat from happening while invetigating regular threats (mostly Communist-backed).

I have the signup posted a few weeks ago.

Anyone interested in an RP based on The Elder Scrolls?

I had two ideas in mind...

  • An RP set in Morrowind during the Third Era
  • An Alternate Universe where Tamriel is a modern fantasy setting with late 20th Century/early 21st Century technology.
    • Much like how the nations of Tamriel are based on historical cultures (Imperials are Romans, Nords are Norse Vikings, et cetera) the nations of modern-day Tamriel are more or less Fantasy Counterpart Culture stand-ins for modern nations. (For example, Cyrodill is now based on the United States instead of the Roman Empire)

Silly idea: Take the rule set from one RPG, Stick it into the setting of another RPG, and see what results.

I present: Alpha Complex Clean Up. Role play an anime maid working for the benevolent, all knowing, and not-at-all-Computer-Senile Friend Computer as it strives to make Alpha Complex into a user-friendly utopia!
