Let's Play an RPG! - GURPS Cyberpunk/Transhuman­

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

    I assume this means there is no meeting today? I only ask because once upon a time there were other games proposed, like the Marvel Heroics and something else. I know this is last minute, but I would love to pitch an old game from my past.

    Palladium wrote game based on the early eighties Japanimation series, Robotech. Its written for basic giant robot violence against alien invaders on a post-apocalyitc Earth. I envision a campaign setting somewhere between Mad Max and Apocalypse Now with giant alien guerrilla warfare and general human criminal mischief.

    I'm sure you all have made other plans for the afternoon, and I wouldd not be able to show until about 4PM, but, if anyone is interested I would love to show off the game. I'll be occupied until about 3 this afternoon, but, I can check in on messages then.

      Hey Tom, I'd normally be totally up for it but can't make it today. If you want to schedule that for another time, I'd try to make it.

    Everyone,

    I feel horrible about this but some things came up and I'm going to have to cancel tomorrow and reschedule for another time. Unfortunately, next weekend is bad for me as well so I'm looking at Sunday August 25 if that works for people. Again, I'm terribly sorry...I definitely want to make this a regular thing and get a good group coming on a regular basis.
