This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

C.J. Carella's Armageddon Girl -- what system?
« on: June 20, 2013, 08:02:25 PM »
As discussed in last night's Q&A, C.J. Carella is working on publishing an alternate history superhero novel, Armageddon Girl, along with an RPG conversion supplement.

He's not sure what the latter will entail yet, although he discussed a system-agnostic supplement as a possibility. Me, I'd like him to use the soon-to-be-published-at-last Beyond Human. Any thoughts?

I really want to believe BH is going to be published. Some day. Tired of waiting for it.

I setup a Unisystem Fans site where fans could come, share downloads, post articles, etc. For free. It netted about 2 fans and maybe 50 signups...  *crickets chirping*. I know there are a few people out there playing Unisystem, but I don't think they are into online stuff. :-)

If there was an open license for it, and 3PP could develop and support it, it might have a resurgence. Otherwise, it seems somewhat faded in popularity.

If he really wants some synergy, he should consider a FATE supplement. Also, FATE has a similar effect to GURPS in that most descriptions of things could be useful in various RPGs, so it could have a broader appeal. Personally, I'm not a fan of FATE, but a cool setting will always peek my interest. There are a pile of FATE fans I'm sure would find his creative settings attractive.
