Roleplay something different...

Just for fun, as a one shot game, I want to apply the Star Wars Edge of the Empire system to another genre of Roleplaying. If you don't know the system, we will teach you. It is very simple.

I am open to suggestions. If there is some genre you have always wanted to try, or some TV show or movie you would like to emulate, discuss it in comments below.

Here are some examples:
1930's pulp action like Indana Jones
Monster hunting ala Supernatural
Commit crimes to give justice, ala Leverage

We will make characters at the table, which should take 30 minutes or so, then jump into the action.

    Revolutionary war era. Native Americans have real ties to the spirit world. Did a one-shot DFRPG like that and it was a blast.

      That would be a phenomenal chronicle for "Werewolf". You're giving me ideas...

    "Judge Dredd" too ;-)

    Could also do a spin on the concept of "Scion"...the characters are in a modern setting but are the children of deities from mythology.

    Sorry I'm already committed to a traveller game that night. The leverage show idea sounds really cool though!

      Ah, Traveller. I haven't played that in over 20 years. But I still keep an eye on it. I will pick up the new T5 sooner or later. And one day I will play it again.

      The guy that GM's our game is an contributor to traveller I think. I know they've got their TSA's already. LOL.

    Or even Indy Jones/Doc Savage type game.

    Hmm...not sure if I can make it,but it's possible. I always thought a good genre would be a spy game...or a '30s mobster one.

    • Richard B.

      Spies? That would be interesting...

      March 4, 2013

    Anything to do with occultism gets me too...though you already knew that.

    March 4, 2013

    • Richard B.

      True, and a little occultism never hurts any genre.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
