Upcoming RPPR One Shot games
« on: July 25, 2012, 02:58:48 AM »
I usually have a floating list of possible one shots I can run at any given time in my head. I sometimes forget them so I thought it would be good to post them here so you guys can let me know which ones sound more interesting than the others:

Trail of Cthulhu - Shanghai in the 1930s - there's a published adventure for it but I want to modify it. Not sure exactly how yet.

Reign - Each PC is a noble in a kingdom. A new empire rolls in and demands the king submit to their authority. Do the PCs stand with their king or the empire? Change is in the wind...

Fear Itself: A plague has devastated the city, leaving only a few survivors. Each PC is immune but has to care for NPC friends or be a loner but suffer from increased paranoia and loneliness. Loosely inspired by the game Lone Survivor. DONE!

Night's Black Agents - I got the PDF but it's a massive book.

Killsplosion: Based on the movie Kill Squad.

Dark Heresy: I have no idea but I'd like to run it

Rogue Trader: Same

Black Crusade: The rebels are rational and the empire is insane. Clearly, chaos is what we need here.

I like this as a thread, but I think you should rename it and then ask all ideas for one shots to go in this thread. That way we have one dedicated thread to requests and announcements.

Add in Jazz Age stuff, cabarets and so on (I'm reading a book about that now)? Shenanigans with the Concessions?

I suggest a rousing game of Synnibarr.

There's actually a utility for that.

It's somewhat funny. In a horrifying, black comedy kind of way.

Do a one-shot session that is entirely character creation, but your character can die a la original Traveller rules

Mix together the Formdestroyer from PK Dick's A Maze of Death (which I found to be his most depressing story) and kipple from Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

A one-shot where the characters discover they are characters controlled by the players...

A one-shot where the characters are part of your stereotypical violence and crime encouraging world where they, to survive against an insanely powerful opposition must not be violent...

Get a hold of the funky game Psychosis:  Ship of Fools and watch the fun

New World of Darkness- Geist: Sin Eaters
4 PC game set in the Underworld on a quest through a Dead Domain. Two players are Sin Eaters the other two are the Geists. Give the Sin Eaters control over the skills and the Geists control over the supernatural powers. If they don't cooperate, they get destroyed.

My suggestion would be to have Tom and Caleb be the "humans" and Thad and Aaron be the Geists.

He'll be back in a year, changed and embittered toward the west but back.

Don't forget about the one-shot that I'm writing for you (to use for something - Skype reward, whatever) that blends data mining, posthumanism, and zombies.

[spoiler]I'm totally not kidding. I'm writing an outline of such a scenario right now.[/spoiler]
