It occurs to me that there is a jumble of ideas just rolling around in my head at any given moment. It also occurs to me that I haven't actually done anything towards running or designing a setting in a long time. I don't know if I can keep anything cohesive in my brain, but I really feel that it is time to start putting ideas out onto the table. I don't know where these ideas are going or what my end game, if I even truly have such a thing, is. All I know is that my brain, though active, has been stagnant with the lack of expression. So I am starting with Space Opera as a setting. It is always been my second favorite genre and my favorite genre to run. I tend towards Star Wars more than Star Trek in terms of character abilities. I have baseline assumptions about playable races from my time running Gemini Ascendant. I want to add more. I am also shifting the mechanics more towards superhero than heroic. Mostly, that is going to be for character generation. Characters will be built using points to buy their signature weapons and powers. To take an example from Star Wars, Luke would buy all of his Force powers and Lightsaber with points. Boba Fett would buy his Mandalorian Battle Armor. That sort of thing. Keep in mind that this is not Star Wars. I am pretty sure that Star Wars, Mass Effect, Guardians of the Galaxy, Star Trek and a bunch more IPs will be inspiring me. They always do. I choose to post ideas here, instead of a blog, to elicit comment and feedback. I work better with constructive criticism than in a vacuum. Wish me luck.
