TD is a great show, cannot wait for 2nd season. I hope there's a CoC or Dirty World game based on it, or something.

I don't understand DW supplements. It sounds awesome and all! But isn't one of the main selling points of the game building the world as you go along?

Plot with a billion quotation marks.

I wanna know how many sessions total of the DW campaign there are, because I'm loving the system.

I truly miss cody's presence in the APs.

Loving the DW campaign, how many sessions are there total?

Woah. Thanks for the great responses. Now that I think about it, I do like the idea of a sort of TITAN trojan horse, perhaps the TITAN influence on the ship is in fact an incredibly closely kept secret and most people believe the ships was overtaken by exhuman, pirates, anarchists or whatever right around the time of the Fall, so it still represents an incredible find yet most of the Hypercorps, Firewall, and governments dunno about the TITAN influence?

If that's the case, I'm gonna need a way to draw the players into the action. I'm thinking maybe an incredibly powerful firewall proxy or member of a hypercorp has gone missing and the players are sent in to investigate, they uncover deep seated plans to infiltrate the ship and bring its systems online for extremist or malevolent ends?

I want the campaign to center around efforts to control the ship, yet not introduce it until that Holy Shit session, you know?

Necro'ed for my own self interest, also a big hello to the RPPR forums after a long hiatus!

I'm running an Eclipse Phase game. My central idea is kind of a Rendezvous with Rama thingies with exsurgent threats. A big ass military spaceship was subsumed by the TITANs stationed aboard it during the fall, it used its considerable resources to manufacture an army of ex-threats it unleashed upon earth whereupon it pulled the good ole upload millions of mind routine and then reconfigured its engines to blast out of the solar system at ludicrous, baffling speeds, its course taking it well out of the galaxy.

Now, for whatever reason, it's making a return to the solar system.

It's a start, but I need more juiciness to it, you know? If anybody has any ideas where to take it from there, I'd love to hear them.

What I have so far is that this spaceship is pretty much a piece of tech that almost every faction wants to get its hands on, not only is a superweapon in of itself (even without all the supped up titan crap it was and still is an extremely powerful warship) it's also a treasure trove of historical pre-fall stuff, TITAN tech, and perhaps most importantly the ship's blackbox (if it's intact) could be extraordinarily valuable.

So, this creates a sort of cuban missile crisis style arms race where everybody wants to get their hands on the ship... yet it's still an x-threat so it creates a very volatile situation. Now that I think about it, one of the first things I should consider is if this megaship will still have a TITAN on board as it comes back to the solar system or not...

I'm just rambling now, but an interesting idea is if the ship uploaded a Promethean and the infected TITAN and the promethean have been at odds for the last 10 years, a game of digital wits or something like that.

On this note of D&D Next, has anybody looked at Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG?

Looks interesting.


nothing like a superhero convention in a STREET LEVEL GAME. They should all be depressing, frank miller esque, watchmen characters.

I just don't see the RPPR guys playing a satisfying Dresden Game. I really think they'd do way better with Laundry.

Woah, woah. Hold on there a second. Does RPPR even have the budget for a Laundry AP? We wouldn't want any audits now, would we?

They did explain things on Lost. You may not have liked how they explained things but they did explain them.

I'm going to call BS on this. They explained maybe a quarter of the original plot threads. The ones they realized they couldn't explained they just didn't come back to.

Dharma initiative shark anyone?

I agree. LOST can go throw itself down a well. And if Marble Hornets continues the same trends, it can too.
