Ages and ages ago, I ran a game here using one of my favorite games of all time--a little gem called Over the Edge.
OtE is a very, very strange game. Take Wild Palms, Twin Peaks, every episode of the Twilight Zone you've ever seen, Dark City, The Naked Lunch, Blade Runner, and Pulp Fiction. Put them in an industrial strength blender. Frappe for thirty seconds. Pour the resulting mixture into a mythical island in the Mediterranean.
(Here's a link to part of that earlier game, which summarizes character generation and gives a few bits of inspirational data along with the first group of PCs, sort of: http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=5902.0
Now have a look at the wiki entry for this fun little show:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burn_Notice_%28TV_series%29
Over the Edge and Burn Notice are like chocolate and peanut butter--an easy and fun combination! Take a bunch of random PCs, some of whom may be spies, and dump them on the weirdest island on Earth. The series practically writes itself.
But one of the problems with any group game, especially online, is that things come to a dead stop when someone goes on vacation, or if their work schedule changes, or gets busy. And with OtE, so many potential ideas don't get followed because of the tendency of parties to stay together.
So here's what I have in mind: a series of connected one-shots where each PC gets their own non-intersecting thread within an overarching plot. Sort of like what might happen if Fiona and Sam got their own series to run alongside Michael's narrative. :)
Discuss! Ask questions! Plot mischief and mayhem!
