    I have been toying with creating a Battlestar Galactica type game for play in the NSWRPF. But it would be set on a different battlestar that escapes the destruction of the Colonies so that characters could do what they wanted without having to deal too much with what the show. I haven't done much with it because I didn't think there would be much interest on a star wars board.

    I totally agreed. My NOIR was meant to be a bit like that, but it did not work out. I mean . . . I cancelled it, because I feel I am not ready for it yet. But I would join this without second thought if done right.

    Another Mass effect game? Yes please! :D (totally has nothing to do with me bouncing off the walls waiting for my CE editon to arrive, no sir 8-} )

    Of course would be nice to play through mass effect 3 first ;) . I was getting ideas about a game while playing the multiplayer demo. Will have to have a think about it

    I want a serious Lovecraft game, by someone who actually ready the books and not only about them :)

    The twist at the end is that the players are all african american now!

    ... Seriously, I love me some Lovecraft, but that story's twist was so horrendously racist it's kind of funny. Some good use of the mythos would be pretty fun, though.

    Seconding Mass Effect. I need an ME roleplay like burning.

    (and all my useless quarian headcanon has to be good for something)

    Thirding Mass Effect. To say the least, I am intrigued thus far.

    Well both Winged and I seem to consider it (also I would like to play in one, so I might give him the first shot, if he wants to), so chances aren´t THAT bad we´ll see one soon. As I am about the only person in the world not yet beaten the game we´ll need to wait and see what could be a story of my game, if I end up doing it.

    Did you ever watch Dinoriders? That would actually be a pretty cool RPG.

    I always found Dinosaurs are too visual to work in written form, I must confess. but that´s only me. Also I would love to see such a game, just to see what Dinosaur everybody chooses. :p

    I thought a while back about a gritty Dino Riders reboot RP, BSG style, either following more or less the original story or picking it up a few generations down the line when they're still stuck in the past and losing their connection to their future technology.

    I think it is well known this is not my "home-board" nowadays. But there is something I always loved about these boards and appreciated and which I miss. So my entry to the wishlist would actually be an accessible, big, open, newbie friendly Star Wars game. Something in the tradition of 128 ABY, AFAS and TORR is what we will need here, once newbies can come back online . . .

    Soon or later that one is hopefully gonna happen again. Once we can actually welcome new users. I am happy we don´t have one of those games, because if TORR taught us anything a break for two weeks is the death of such a thing.

    But yes, to prosper I feel too, we might one of those once again. The problem is, obviously . . . you cannot plan them. They kinda happen. And I would not be totally surprised to learn, that our next one isn´t Star Wars related, actually.

    Interesting point. I guess I feel the same way about a lot of fantasy and scifi elements, though - we read the [i}Star Wars[/i] novels, but then can't wait for that warfare book to come out so we can see what everything looks like.

    I dunno, I think Michael Crichton would disagree about dinosaurs.

    That´s true. Also not every Dino worked for me in Jurassic Park. But he was exceptionally skilled in visual writing. Maybe the best there is, which was always his great skill. He wrote movies for the head, really.

    Then again, picutres might actually do the trick. Or even videos. See Game Master discussion going on right now. There are loads of those BBC docus, right? Bet some are on you tube.

    I had an encyclopedic knowledge of dinosaurs when I was a kid, so for me images and all that aren't too necessary. I've got a small database in my head :p

    Of course, that means I'll be the guy going, "Actually, what most people think of as a velociraptor is really a deinonychus. Raptors were small dinos, not much larger than a golden Labrador dog, if that." :p

    I wish for another attempt at a fast moving cinematic game, as long as I still got time for it. Star Wars, probably. Still our common ground here. Nobody trying something like that? Let´s hope the new boards come up fast!
