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

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.

    Hey all,

    I have had a chance to prepare as much as I would like this week so I'm going to have to put it off to another week. We have four people signed up right now between the WARS and Westchester gaming website, which is a big enough group to play but I just don't want run a game that I'm not ready to run. At last count we were on the verge of entering the lab and exploring some of its secrets, but I don't have all the npc's prepared and the locations mapped out like I would like.

    I really appreciate you all getting back to me. I'll be rescheduling for next week and hope people can make it. If I haven't heard from you and you are still interested, let me know! I'm trying something a little differet, scheduling it for Friday instead of Sunday.

    If you are going to RSVP on the meetup RSVP on Westchester Geeks as otherwise we can't get it listed. Thanks!

    Jonathan

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.
