Gauging interest
« on: August 24, 2014, 09:34:33 AM »

I've faded from the PBP scene over the last couple years due to job demands (current one is a real nut-stomper). Anyway, I am in serious need of some fun and have been thinking about launching a new PBP game, and wanted to see about interest. Here are the top co tenders for game systems I would be keen to run; I don't have stories ready, just general genres.

* Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space (Torchwood, UNIT team, Time Agents? Something else?)

* The Laundry Files (based on the novels by Charles Across about civil servant/spies combating Lovecraftian horrors with occult tech). Bonus: American GM who has never been there tries to run a game set in contemporary UK.

* Qin: The Warring States: gritty Wuxia in ancient China

* Heroquest: Nameless Streets -- supernatural noir (cops, PIs, angels, demons, secret societies).

Any interest in any of these?

Hahaha! Well played sir, and welcome back to gaming.

My first vote would be for Who, obviously, but I could also go for some Qin or Heroquest just based on their descriptions given that I know nothing about them.  :)

Since you number two, what manner of Who would you like to do?

Any of the above ideas for Who sound great, if I had to rank them it'd be Torchwood, Time Agents, UNIT. Although anything that might allow me to play a/THE time lord would get my vote over any of those.

I'll take that question into its own thread in the game forum and let Om get on with recruitment.
