Any Player Interest? What would you like to play?

Okay, so CthulhuTech is out. I want to run something, and I'm open to suggestions

Something that allows people to post long paragraphs at once...

There are two old-school fantasy games - Respite and Adventurers upon Return, there's Starkin, there's Bleak Wood and Kuramen...
You know what we miss? All these games are exploratory, with frequent GM input required; we should do something heavily roleplay-based, with lots of character, NPC and location development, and based on a city, fort, or whatever we call home. We should do something where characters are not drifters.

How about that?

I'd be in for something like that, though it would be a change for me.  My verbosity does not match many of the Strolen regulars.

Interesting, I can do something along those lines but it would require some thought.

Well, we do not want a thoughtless RP anyway, do we? ^_^

Well, more thought that usual.

What I was planning for a CthulhuTech game would still work, since it isnt chasing down clues, but rather revolves around a single Arcology. To make it a richer RP setting, i would really only need to back the timeline up a few months...

Which is doable.

Basics:
Military/Paramilitary/scientific setting
All players are residents of or are assigned to the Arcology in question

There isnt hunting for clues, no world traveling, none of that. If can get enough players I can toss out a "Who is the Mole" element where one of the PCs is actually a traitor, and use that element rather than a GM controlled antagonist.

If there is any chance the characters die of old age in bed, I'd play a gene-mod squint. Biochemist, medic perchance.

So a game with no chance of death???

What is a Gene-Mod Squint?

No, a game where a horrible and traumatic death is not certain. See "chance of dying of old age".

A squint is a nerd or lab geek (term lovingly stolen from the 'Bones' series).

Gene-mod, well genetically modified, humanity 2.0 (basically for flavor, would discuss more in PM).

Ah, I understand what you are saying. There is a chance your character could suffer a horrific death, but half of CthulhuTech is Anime, which is all about not dying horrific deaths.

So, automatic horrible deaths are out. They still might happen, the setting is certainly full of monsters and aliens and horrors, but humanity has picked up some pretty big guns and weapons to deal with them

This, good sir, is a marked fallacy.

Never mind, as I was looking for examples to support my argument, I realized that the main characters generally don't die in Anime.  Emotionally scared for all of eternity is par for the course, but generally not dead.  Though part of my problem is that I generally don't watch happy Anime though, so my opinion on this might be biased.
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
