Let's Play an RPG! - GURPS Cyberpunk/Transhuman­ (xpost at WARS)

If you are interested, please follow the doodle link below to let us know the best days/times for you!

Imagine a future world where almost anything is possible through technology and enhanced biology, but at a cost. Out-of-control pollution, super bugs and nano machines that infiltrate, corrupt and afflict the biological and mechanical alike, new and monstrous genetically modified and cybernetically enhanced beings that threaten to disrupt the order of society, mad scientists that seek to use technology to open portals that were meant to stay closed, corporations and governments controlled my megalomaniacal AIs and radical theocratic cabals all make the world a dangerous place.

In this world, you will meet genetically modified ex-soldiers barely keeping it together, alcoholic cybernetically enhanced detectives, AI robots with broken hearts, super spies who have entirely given up their bodies in favor of "cyberdolls", and all kinds of future technology that borders on (or may actually be!) magic. Everyone has a secret. What is yours?

But there are also bright spots in this world, people and nations who are using technology to visit new worlds and create new opportunities. Hints at other intelligences and maybe even other realities!

Things in this world COULD go very badly, but they say it takes just one good person, one might even say hero, to change things for the better.

And this is just the start! The GURPS game system allows infinite flexibility, so the campaign becomes what we want it to become!

This meetup is for anyone interested in participating in a RPG in this world. We use the GURPS Transhuman game system. A free copy of the "lite" versions of GURPS rules can be found at http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/Lite/

The campaign will be designed so that new people should be able to come and go and is specifically set up with new players in mind, so don't worry if you missed a previous game session or haven't played an RPG before!

Go to http://doodle.com/3vybxanerrstxde2 and let us know what days/times are best for you!

Cheers.

Jonathan

    Anyone want me to bring something (AKA food, supplies(i have 4 game mats), etc.)?

    August 3, 2013

    • Jonathan

      Actually I would love if you could bring your game mats, and really any minis that would work for a futuristic game. We won't be using minis/maps all the time, but for certain combat scenarios they will be useful.

      August 3, 2013

  • Seamas

    Good news everyone! I'll be bringing banana oatmeal cookies

    1 · August 2, 2013

    • Seamas

      You ruined the surprise!

      August 2, 2013

    • Seamas

      The cookie miniatures are ready.

      August 3, 2013

  • Ali

    I'm just a little too overextended. Sorry, guys.

    July 30, 2013

    • Jonathan

      No preparation required, just get there as close to noon as you can and we will get you set up.

      July 31, 2013

    • Ali

      Sounds great. I'll be there!

      July 31, 2013

  • Tom

    I feel terrible saying this after I asked for Aug 4, but I am going to be late that day too. I need to be at work for about half the day. I'll join you guys as soon as I can.

    1 · July 31, 2013

    • Jonathan

      No worries Tom, we can work you in when you get there. Any chance you have access to a scanner/copier and could scan and email me a copy of your character sheet? Also...Lefse's spy backstory, it doesn't have to be complicated or extensive, just a short bit on who he works for and why he is now working for Martingale security.

      July 31, 2013

  • Jonathan

    Hey All unfortunately Brendan won't be able to make it Sunday, August 4, but he can make it August 11, so we will go ahead with the August 4 meetup, but I'm ALSO adding an August 11 meetup, which I hope many or perhaps all of you can attend. Even if you CAN'T attend I would love for you to RSVP so we get the required number two move it from Suggested to Scheduled on Westchester Geeks.

    July 30, 2013

    • Seamas

      Boo Brendan!

      July 30, 2013

  • Jonathan

    If you are coming and you made a character two weeks ago, I ask that you just make a copy of your character sheet so I can have a copy in front of me as I GM. THANKS!

    July 30, 2013

  • Seamas

    I have a few painted Shadowrun minis; a couple of kobolds and an orc wielding a chain gun

    July 29, 2013

    • Jonathan

      Bring them!

      July 29, 2013

    • Seamas

      I also have guys with guns, I'll bring them too

      July 29, 2013

  • Tom

    Sounds good. Thanks for being flexible.

    July 28, 2013

  • Jonathan­ changed the date and time from Sunday, August 11, 2013 at 12:00 PM to Sunday, August 04, 2013 at 12:00 PM

    July 28, 2013

  • Jonathan

    NEW DATE! Let me know if this is better or worse.

    July 28, 2013

  • Tom

    My work schedule just changed and I will most likely be in the lab until at least the middle of the afternoon on August 11. I think the moral of the story is to not rely on my ever-shifting work obligations and to plan for whatever day works best for everyone else. I will definitely attend whenever you decide if work allows.

    July 26, 2013

  • Tom

    I like Aug 4 better. Saturday nights are my contradancing habit.

    July 24, 2013

    • Jonathan

      You like Sunday Aug 4 better than Sunday Aug 11?

      July 25, 2013

  • Jonathan

    Hey question, if I switched it to Sunday August 4, would that work just as well for people?

    July 24, 2013

  • Seamas

    Thanks for switching it to Sunday

    July 23, 2013

  • Jonathan­ changed the time from 1:00 PM to 12:00 PM

    July 23, 2013

  • Jonathan­ changed the date and time from Saturday, August 10, 2013 at 1:00 PM to Sunday, August 11, 2013 at 1:00 PM

  • Jonathan

    If you haven't already, please follow the doodle link and let us know the times that are good for you.

    July 23, 2013

  • Jonathan

    So it looks like maybe more people can make it on Sunday than Saturday, so I'll go ahead and change it to Sunday.

    July 23, 2013

  • Tom

    GUUUUUURPS!!

    July 22, 2013

  • Seamas

    I have a meetup at 11, kayaking at sleepy hollow

    July 22, 2013

    • Jonathan

      Also, if you could go ahead and RSVP even if you can't make it at least we can get it listed as an event and not just a "Suggested" event.

      July 22, 2013

    • Jonathan

      Never mind! It look like it is a schedule event already! Not sure how that happened.
