I'm interested in doing a group game based on the PC game Alpha Centauri.
The basic plot is that humanity reaches Alpha Centauri, only for the captian of the spaceship to be mysteriously murdered and the crew to split up into ideological factions. When the factions of the crew go to the surface of the planet in their escape pods, they meet a strange sort of lifeform known as mind worms, who confront victims with their worst nightmares and then lay eggs in their brains. These creatures cause a great deal of trouble, until it's revealed that the xenofungus which is their habitat actually forms a nueral network. A neural network which is the mind of a self aware being, growing stronger and smarter due to human intervention.
The game will take place in the last year of the human presence on Alpha Centauri, one way or another. The power of planet has increased dramatically, and its collective energy output is now quickly reaching that of humanity. Provost Dr. Zakharov of the University of Planet constructed a machine to download the entire cultural and scientific output of human society into planet, in hopes that doing so would enable planet to understand and control its own processes. Unfortunately, the plan also has a signifigant chance of causing planet's ecosystem to explode, covering the entire surface of the planet in a several mile thick net of xenofungus before it dies off from lack of nutrients, unable to stop itself.
Foremost among the opponents of this strategy are the Lord's Believers, a group of fundamentalists who want to simply let nature take its course, as God intended. Thier threats are not idle. They have gathered a military force on the edge of University territory, on the verge of invading, to protect planet from the sins of man. There are rumors that the Believers have armed themselves with a bomb capable of creating an artificial singularity, and intend to use it should their attack fail.
Many dangers lurk in the shadows, including the renagade forces of Colonel Santiago, who fight for a spartan ideal of self reliance. The Cyborg Collective, who intend to technologically enhance all of humanity, and the Data Angels, an unpredictable group of anarchists aiming to gain control of the University by exploiting vulnurabilities in their data networks.
The game will focus on the stories of various individuals in this exceptional time, with a healthy dose of action/adventure and super science. Players may play as faction leaders or original characters, and I certainly wouldn't mind someone signing up to play as Planet. No Precursors please, this is supposed to be a game about humanity.
