Two options for a Sci-Fi RP [Poll]

on Thu Oct 06, 2016 2:27 pm
I was able to get some responses for the interest check which point to, so while I'm still going to keep the poll open if anyone else is interested, I'll start a vote now for two different science fiction premises:

1) "Journey to the Stars": This takes place in a world that is slightly more technologically advanced than our own where humanity has recently discovered faster than light travel. The player characters are people who have managed to secure their place on the first FTL Spaceship. Humanity knows very little of the universe around them, and depending on the players this RP could from something as light and optimistic as Stark Trek, a space opera or even a cosmic horror story.

2) "Dream-machine": The technological singularity has taken place in this world as robotics, computation and medical technology has advanced to a point where human beings are now capable of uploading their entire self onto computers. They are now also more interconnected than ever to the virtual world and to each other thanks to their neural implants and advances in production have allowed the eradication of ills such as famine, poverty, resource shortages and disease which have plague humanity for it's entire existence. Yet, all is now well for their are reports of hackers and other unsavory individuals exploiting and manipulating people due to their implants, stories of men and women who have chosen to retreat into elaborate worlds of virtual reality and even rumors of the development of Artificial Intelligence.

This is focusing more on an ideal society with new "science fiction problems", which may have detective work, dream bar fights and confronting the consequences of these inventions, or you can also try to go full Luddite by trying to stop the excesses of these dangerous new technologies.

3)Other:
I've had other ideas such as a more cyber-punk setting where technology has progressed as quickly as in option 2, but social progress hasn't come with it. That being said, that can quickly become political.
There's also an option to play as a newly "born" AI trying to learn and survive in a world that could be hostile to them and the final one could be a space western similar to firefly or cowboy bebop.

Most of these ideas have only one big gimmick however, but if they sound interesting select this option, specify which one you want and if optionally post something that could help make the story more interesting. The world isn't that important, but it's a good idea to know what people would prefer to play in.


This should be the last poll and after this I will choose a system for the world and than open a thread for character creation.

Alright, I'll be going with the Spaceship game. I'm not sure what the ones who voted "other" had in mind, so if you voted other please post what you liked here. I'm probably going to recycle these concepts for the spaceship game anyway.
