Ideas you got from works of fiction

  • Post ideas you got from works of fiction. I started an Awakening 2e game that was inspired by Blade Runner 2049. You can still read the writeup, but I had to shutter that game when my father died this Summer.

    What works of fiction have you aped, and how, and why?

    Darker fantasy has been really appealing to me lately. A Land Fit for Heroes, The Broken Empire , Cain's Law. I have been growing increasingly tired of games where everyone is the good guy and somehow manages to go from zero to murder at the drop of a hat.

    Those books show that evil (or at best a very jaded and selfish Chaotic Neutral) is a perfectly viable playstyle, and that you can make them deep, interesting characters that people want to work with rather than mustache twirling idiots that cackle all their mad plans.

    I will make a game for this. Someday. When I can reclaim my RL.
