Ok, so, I have a new vague idea for a group game. I've been hooked on the new-ish Digimon game, Cyber Sleuth, for the past few weeks (my current count just before starting the final Chapter is 240 hours >.> ) and suddenly have kind of an urge to start a Digimon themed group game, centred around six 18 year olds who get sucked into the Digital World a la the first season of Digimon and have to work with their Digimon partners to overcome several hundred challenges in order to save the (Digital) world and return home. I don't have much more of a plot idea other than that, but it's something I want to explore and figured that before I come up with a long, in-depth plot for it, I would see if people were actually interested. Basically, the basics of what I have planned are thus:
-- Six 18 year olds, some who know each other, some who don't, get sucked into the Digital World via an unexplained phenomenon. This has not happened in the world before, so they're understandably skeptical and a bit terrified.
-- Each of these six 18 year olds is met with a Trainee Digimon, who becomes their partner. Which one you get would be decided on in a chat with the GM, since each Digimon Partner is supposed to - in the lore - both reflect an aspect of your personality, but also have something to teach you. EG, learning to rely on your friends, learning to admit that you were wrong, etc etc. Likewise, your character is supposed to be able to teach their Digimon something, so they can truly grow as individuals.
-- Their end goal is to get home and - after they learn of some Impending Catastrophe - save the Digital World in the process.
-- Sex will be allowed, but won't be the main focus.
-- It will largely run chronologically through a guided path and events, though it will have breaks regularly to explore extra curricular activities without having to wait for the plodding plot.
-- Digimon can be directly controlled by you, or they can be controlled by another player of your choice. It's up to you.
-- Newly gained Digivolutions would be dictated by me, after discussion with the player in question, just so everybody stays on a level playing field.
-- This might be a system game or systemless...I haven't decided yet.
So, before I go to the trouble of writing up a big long plot synopsis and Application Thread...is anybody interested in having a character who has a little Pokemon-but-better pet / friend?
