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

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!

If interested, please visit http://doodle.com/eicxeuc5xzaww to let me know the best days/times are for you to attend a game session.

Cheers.
Jonathan

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
