Replicant Campaign: Who's up for it?

Post  Shinobu on Mon Mar 11, 2013 6:11 pm

So, I've mentioned on IRC that I want to run a campaign where the PCs are replicants, since in our use of them in Oracle they've been really cool and I want to explore that some more. The PCs will belong to a Gemini scientist/manager, and be sent off to deal with matters that either Gemini doesn't want to send people on or that aren't official Gemini business but just their owner's cunning plots - how combat-focused it'll be will depend on how the group breaks down between Marauders and Muses.

I'm going to run the game via Roll20, because it's a good all-in-one virtual tabletop so we can chat, roll dice, and I can sketch out maps and stuff, and playing online will make it easier to schedule. I'm thinking of taking advantage of that with short 2-3 hour sessions generally so it's easy to find time for a game.

Character generation:
PCs start out with one of the following stat line-ups, depending on which kind of replicant they are.

Going to be playing a Muse with Animal Skills. What else do we know about this manager? What kind of name and appearance would he pick?

My plan is to create the owner as a group - firstly by the implications of the characters' names, appearances, and all that, and also by going around the table at the start of the first session and asking each player to tell me something about the owner. If people want to establish more beforehand that's fine, I just like group creation of things and don't want to cut out concepts by defining too much before giving people a chance to say "can we do/not do X?"

If this is short online sessions then sure, I'm up for this. Would probably like to play a Muse because I just find them more fun. Sounds like this could be really interesting...

Alright then, I'm gonna say this is a full group.

Bonuses from cybernetics are factored into the stats and skills, since replicants are good at what they do because of how they're built. Situational bonuses like getting +2 to a social skill from videoskin are as normal.

I mentioned this on IRC the other night, but I'd like it if people could look for pictures that at least vaguely fit your characters to use as tokens on the map (plus character pictures are cool). If you can't find anything I'll grab something to stand in.

What would be a good time for the first session? Obviously we have to work around whenever Oracle happens, but apart from that Monday and Wednesday are the only evenings that are a problem for me, and I could do Thursday in the daytime if people wanted to game earlier.

I'll probably be having two Doctor Who sessions this week, so I'm not yet sure what evenings I'm free. I am free Thursday daytime, though, I know that much. I'm also leaving for home on Saturday, but that shouldn't be a problem if we're online.

Okay, when is a time that people can do? Trina, what time zone are you in? That seems like the biggest obstacle to scheduling.

Saturday or Sunday evening at 7-ish would be good for me, but I've not got much on so if neither of those works for other people I'm happy to do another time.

I think Saturday should be fine, and probably Sunday as well, though I'm less certain on that one.

Both sound fine to me at present, but I reserve the right to be at another roleplay at short notice and thus unavailable.
