How about a different setting for a CRPG?

Hi guys

 

 

Would you play a true CRPG (Fallout style) set in the WWII era?

 

There would be say a few German deserters on the russian front and somehow you should get back to Germany through foul and fair.

Or British POWs in the heat of Northern Africa...

Or American paratroopers left in the heart of Germany...

Let your imagination run wild.

 

There are only fantasy and scifi RPGs; why shouldn't there be a new kind of setting?

 

I know publishers don't like taking too much risk, but it's good to fantasize once in a while. :)

 

Or should we let the idea die on the vine?

 

My last question: what other setting would you find interesting?

Dark Sun, Warhammer 40k, or Dreampod 9's Heavy Gear universe. All those would be interesting.

Sure, I would love a WWII setting. I have no problems with a military setting for a crpg.

 

I also second a vote for a western crpg with guns. I used to play the old Boot Hill pnp game way back when and loved it.

I thought i posted a prison setting... :o maybe that was another thread :)

 

Anyway, you could be a new inmate who has to gain the protection of a faction and then get drawn into the interplay of the different gangs. You could have the ability to switch gangs or maybe even be a snitch for the wardens.

 

It would never get made, probably too edgy. :(

crpg western with some supernatural elements. *faints*

Notice how I can belittle your beliefs without calling you names. It's a useful skill to have particularly where you aren't allowed to call people names. It's a mistake to get too drawn in/worked up. I mean it's not life or death, it's just two guys posting their thoughts on a message board. If it were personal or face to face all the usual restraints would be in place, and we would never have reached this place in the first place. Try to remember that.

Uhm.. In Gothic you're playing a nameless criminal that starts out by getting tossed into a prison. Then you have to side with one of the three gangs inside the prison to be able to break out (actually destroy the entire prison).. You can't switch gangs though and there are no wardens.

I'd like one set in the US Civil War period. Most Civil War games are RTS.

Ancient civilizations like someone else mentioned would be cool, too. Actually, combining RPG with city building somehow would probably turn me on quite a bit, if it was done creatively/well.

What the....? :blink: Its all in german <_< Is that scenario in Gothic 2?

 

 

Gothic was a dirty fantasy game so it doesnt count. You still win, Surp.

 

 

 

 

...and there was no anal rape in Gothic either.

DISCLAIMER: Do not take what I write seriously unless it is clearly and in no uncertain terms, declared by me to be meant in a serious and non-humoristic manner. If there is no clear indication, asume the post is written in jest. This notification is meant very seriously and its purpouse is to avoid misunderstandings and the consequences thereof. Furthermore; I can not be held accountable for anything I write on these forums since the idea of taking serious responsability for my unserious actions, is an oxymoron in itself.

 

Important: as the following sentence contains many naughty words I warn you not to read it under any circumstances; botty, knickers, wee, erogenous zone, psychiatrist, clitoris, stockings, bosom, poetry reading, dentist, fellatio and the department of agriculture.
