What do you want to play or run?

Riffing off a post by Zachary Houghton on G+, here's a question.

What game do you want to play, but just can't find anyone else who's interested?

For me, it's Chivalry & Sorcery and Ringworld. I love both those games, but it is a rareified atmosphere indeed.

What about you? What would you love to play if only there were enough players who agreed with you?

The morbidly nostalgic me wants to play in a Twilight 2000 game.

Always wanted to give Nobilis a try, but my friends recoil when I talk about the "Flower Rite Attacks", which are the only way a Realm can assault another Realm. Too cerebral, Toby once told me... *sigh*

I had that Ringworld set since I'm a big Larry Niven fan. It was a complete disappointment in terms of setting up the Ringworld for adventure. There's nothing there to help a GM, nothing.

The only worthwhile thing in the set is the descriptions of the Human and Kzin worlds, which would be excellent for character backgrounds and adventures (if developed out more).

Given Known Spaces' invulnerable hulls and psychic extreme luck trait and other items, I think you'd be better off having a Traveller crew mis-jump there and adventure with that.

Chivalry and Sorcery! Cool game that I havent played in years.

C&S, like you. I love that magic system. Also Tales of Gargenthir. Real obscure, but a wonderful setting.

Right now, I am itching to run the old Stormbringer RPG (4th edition) in one of CAS's settings, either Zothique or Hyperborea.

Well, it's more about a lack of time, than finding people, but I'd like to run a game set in Lankhmar, but rather than using D&D or the Mongoose RuneQuest stuff, I'd rather roll my own using the latest Chaosium BRP, with elements of the old Stormbringer.

That, or drop Greyhawk into the Black Gulf from AS&SoH, and give it even more of a Ashton-Smith and Lovecraft flavor.

I've been itching to play in a Fuzion Bubblegum Crisis game or a Jovian Chronicles game, and not play-by-post.

Serendipity said...

That's a longish list. Off the top of my head, I'd say Dungeon Crawl Classics, 1e Stormbringer, Runequest (ideally an older incarnation - 2nd or 3rd edition) or for that matter any member of the BRP family really. Maybe some Traveller.

Rolemaster, in the PDF age, those charts would be easier to hand out :)

Tom said...

Oh man, Rolemaster using PDFs with good hot links would be excellent!
