Information Gathering
« on: October 29, 2006, 02:25:26 AM »
I am feeling the urge to possibly run a rules-based game, similar to Muro's Back in the Old Days game.  But I can't decide if I want to do high fantasy, low fantasy, space opera, cyberpunk, super hero/metahumans, post-apocalyptic, or what have you.  Is there any genre/type that anyone is just dying to play, out of curiosity?

You can put me down for high or low fantasy, but for the others no.

Not sure if I could keep up with two games at once, but a post-appocalypse game sounds interesting. Though I wonder if there'd be any 'special' humans as a result of the disaster. Might be interesting.

It'd be nice to see another genre represented.  Of those presented, post-apoc and hero are my favorites.  But cyberpunk and space opera sound just as fun.

I'd be in for any of the more sci fi ones, with post-apoc being extremely high on the list.
They were immediately and absolutely recognizable as adventurers... They were hardy and dangerous, lawless, stripped of allegiance or morality, living off their wits, stealing and killing, hiring themselves out to whoever and whatever came. They were inspired by dubious virtues.  China Mieville - Perdido Street Station

All of the above, I suppose. But High/Low fantasy would be first on my list

I'm down with either, preferably post-apocalypse.

I would like to play a post-apoc game, sign me up for that, but I would also play a supers, cyberpunk, or any fantasy. Not sure about the space opera... but most of those sound fun.

I'm good with any of the games, although I kinda like the idea of supers or post apoc...
