A Few I'd Like to See
« on: February 20, 2007, 10:48:43 PM »
Ok, so the ideas I've come up with as a potential GM haven't generated much interest.  Maybe someone else can do better.  :)  Here's some indication of what I'd like to join up with:

a) Something sci-fi (freeform or GURPS) that's either not part of TV/movies or is based in Farscape
-- Strangely I've recently been considering an Arabian Nights themed SF (Genie's being androids or genetically engineered servants?)
---- Probably too much C.J. Cherryh (Hammerfall)

b) Hmm . . . well, I guess I'm just in a SF mood.  Though I wouldn't turn down a mage themed/focused (magi running things and/or dominating society) fantasy, modern or traditional.

c) Horseclans . . .

I might be able to cook up something along the lines of #2. Give me a few days to see what I can come up with.

Horseclans... what do you mean by that?

Series of novels from .. the 80s I think, maybe even the 70s. Post apocalyptic, set some centuries after whats presumbably a third world war. The man characters are horse nomads in the central US, who have telepathic abilities (mindspeak), and can talk with their horses, prairecats (big felines .. lion / tiger things) and each other.

Civilisation is back to mostly a medievil level, so lots of swords and armour.

Basically, though from what I recall, mindspeak didn't work all that well between people.  Robert Adams.

(That one came to mind after I rearranged a bunch of stuff and unearthed the copy of GURPS Horseclans I managed to acquire a couple years ago.)

But, I think I'm gonna close this up for now, since it looks like I will be running something and RL has its own demands.

Depends on the people. Some are quite capable of having conversations, though they take only a fraction of the time a verbal one does. Others barely have enough mindspeak to be reachable at all.

I have the first 10 or so novels on my book shelf. Didn't know there was a game.

I've got 11 of the novels, though I'm not certain any beyond the first five are in order.  :)

SJGames did a GURPS version back in the early 80s.  It's been out of print for at least 15 years, usually sells on eBay/Half for $20+ (original cover price is about $10), I think I snagged my copy there for under $5.
