No hard ideas yet, and to be honest I am struggling to come up with an overall idea so I thought I'd pose the choice here and maybe open the topic up to discussion. In any event...XXXCOM
Tentative idea is that the plot begins immediately following the council withdrawal of support for the initiative in the first game. XCOM is put on ice. Without resources and with members of the council actively working to sabotage them, the base soon comes under attack. Their goal is no longer the eradication of XCOM as a military entity, but its conversion into an asset. Afterall, the aliens have already won.
While Bradford and Shen manage to escape, the aliens capture the Commander and Dr. Vahlen... along with the PCs. Those with The Gift are then probed and examined, and eventually forced to breed. Others are subjected to examination and modification- the soldiers of XCOM are not unlike ordinary humans, and the aliens are quite intrigued with the use they've made out of Meld. All without them lifting a finger...Superheroes
Tentative idea is an all superheroes game taking place 20 minutes into the future following an aesthetic very much like Overwatch.
Very bright, very colorful, very sexy. Nothing too serious. Problem is, I don't have much of a plot. An idea I have is that the PCs, both heroes and villains, are framed for some crime they didn't commit and have been lumped into the same category. They find themselves hunted and need to clear their names.
Not much, I know... but hey, I'm open to suggestions.
I'm open to suggestions on both ideas, by the way. The XXXCOM story might not even be like the one outlined above at all.
