Why not Gundam?
« on: August 18, 2013, 04:27:24 PM »
Someone other than me should come up with a gundam based roleplay, it would be a nice change of pace. Eventually superhero role plays are going to lose their steam due to overexposure. The mecha genre is becoming popular again. Gundam is a relatively unexplored fandom and the most well known mech franchise. Think about the potential. I have some ideas, but I don't feel like gming.

Well, I think the superhero RP is pretty much evergreen (it provides an almost endlessly adaptable sort-of-contemporary setting in which to play out archetypes and fantasies), but there'd be nothing wrong with a Gundam one. I see that a Gundam big game was attempted here before. A logical first step for someone to take might be to have a look at that one and see if there are any lessons to be learned from it for a forum setting.

(Not that "someone" will be me. I'd consider running something based on Mekton Zeta at some time in the future, maybe, but for right now Pacific Rim has taken care of my mecha fix just fine...)

Would it be easier to just create a unique Gundam Universe or did you have something more series-specific in mind?
