Red Dwarf Type Idea?
« on: July 13, 2006, 07:54:09 AM »
Hi,

I like the idea of having a game where the heroes are stuck somewhere in space trying to get home.

It would be great to have between six to eight "characters" all trying to survive together in the middle of nowhere and falling in and out of lust with each other and with aliens they meet on the way. I would like to think we can make it funny as well as erotic and fun.

There could be tentacles or furries involved alien wise!!

I think it would be easiest to play in free-form and we would all be expected to drive the story.

Anyway let me know people think.

cheers

jester

excellent. lets see what other interest we get. do you have an idea of how you want your character to be?

do you think the heroes should awake on the ship and find everyone else dead as in the original or do you think it should just be a shup that got lost manned by fools?

Excellent Elvi.

I have just realised though this might not appeal to anyone not english. Though they did try it in the US didnt they with a new cast apart from Kryten.

I believe it flopped.

If you have not heard of Red Dwarf then think small spaceship with funny characters having sex with each other and assorted aliens while they try to travel billions of light years home.

*Tilts head, pondering* I've never seen or heard of Red Dwarf, but I think I'm interested, if you'll have me!

Well it's not quite that they are fools, thought there is a rather anal retentive hologram and a severely damaged sentient computor.
It's more that they aren't really equiped to deal with the flight and control of a mining ship that has got lost somewhere along the way.

Of course Jester, we would have to ammend the cast just a little......*grins*.....but we MUST have Cat in one form or another.....

Details taken from the BBC comedy site:

This is the premise: the crew of a 21st-century deep-space mining ship, the Red Dwarf, are all - bar one - wiped out following a radiation leak. The sole survivor is David Lister, who has been placed in suspended animation for 18 months as punishment for smuggling aboard a pet pregnant cat. Lister remains in stasis for three million years, and when he awakes he has some unexpected company: a hologram of his former shift leader Rimmer, who has retained all the foibles of the master material; the shipboard computer Holly, now showing definite signs of senility; and 'Cat' a strange human-like creature who turns out to have evolved, over the past three million years, from the pregnant moggy - resulting in a sort of feline-sapien. This mismatched assortment proceed to roam the universe, becoming involved - despite their reluctance - in a fantastic variety of weird and wonderful adventures. By the third series the computer personality had been replaced by a new, sparkier version and the crew were joined by an all-too-human-like android, Kryten.

Just to give you idea of the program the Red Dwarf Crew were very much caricature's.

Lister -
Full Name: David Lister
Species: Homo sapiens barely human
Occupation: Bum

Rimmer -
Full Name: Arnold Judas Rimmer
Species: Ex-human Hologram
Occupation: Second Technician,

Cat -
Full Name: The Cat
Species: Felis Sapiens
Occupation: Unknown--sometimes pilots Starbug

Kristine -
Full Name: Kristine Kochanski
Species: Homo sapiens dead-sexy
Occupation: Navigation Officer

Kryten -
Full Name: Kryten 2x4b 42qp
Species: 4000 Series Mechanoid (Divadroid International)
Occupation: Service Mechanoid

So we need to come up with our own amusing caricatures. Should be fun!

I see no reason in having more than one cat type.

It might be funny to have two cat types that hate each other.

Well.......*sniffs*
That would depend firstly upon the GM and who could make the better character.

And I notice you don't dare come outside with me......

I called dibs.  And the prospective GM doesn't mind having two of us.  Nyaaaah.

Besides, the last time I stepped outside with you, you tried to whap me with a shojo-mallet and then...what's the word?  Oh, yes.  Snog me into submission.   :P

Well if there is to be two, then you'd better watch out for sibling rivalry, because you're gonna get planty of it......*sniff*

Depends on what sort of Cat you are.  I'm shooting more for the Nuku-nuku school of cat-girl, here...

Besides, it isn't the snogging I mind so much as the mallet-induced headache that went with it.   ;D
