I’m wondering if you guys will ever make a podcast out of this game… it’s system seems to be Cuthulu/Spacemaster. It’s a Sci-fi game where people are getting into ‘upgrading’ them selves by inhabiting ‘morphs’. It is very hard to die, because you backup your ‘ego'(your personality, etc.)
But, anyway, it seems like a good game and I think you guys would have a fun time with it.September 4, 2009 at 10:45 pm #616962
As it happens, I have this one, and I too would love to hear it done. Perhaps the Texans might drop it in during at some point.September 4, 2009 at 10:59 pm #616963weasel

This game sounds really interesting. 😀
I’ve been looking for a good post-singularity science-fiction rpg for some time – ever since reading Excession, in fact. I’m thinking about buying this and persuading the WH crew to give it a go after S7S, but so far I’ve only read about it, not seen the actual game.
Can anyone tell me – is it
a) any good?,
b) appropriate for someone (eg me) who likes rules-light narrative systems?September 4, 2009 at 11:33 pm #616964
To answer Herr Weasel’s queries in order:
a) It looks very good. The setting is solid, and from a read appears to achieve a good balance of sci-fi and horror elements (always a tricky business).
b) Well, since I have a fairly famous dissatisfaction with rules-light narrative systems* you might expect any system that I say nice things about to have a fair bit of crunch. And in this case you’d be correct, but it isn’t all that bad. Its a fairly-standard percentile-based system with some varying levels of resolution complexity. The OP described it as Cthulhu/Spacemaster, but being intimately familiar with both, I’d put it quite a ways closer to Cthulhu than Spacemaster. Nothing that I can see that should stifle anyone’s precious creativity.
* And actually that isn’t quite true; my dissatisfaction lies properly with pretentious players and GMs who tend to gravitate toward the more narrative systems. Present company is excluded, of course.September 5, 2009 at 6:58 am #616965CrazyMLC

I just have read a lot of things that seem very funny.
If you have a certain ‘implant’ in your morph, you become immune to poisonous chemicals, gasses, spoiled food, etc. It even says you might start to like the flavor of chemicals like cyanide. Lol.September 7, 2009 at 8:40 am #616966Pencil-Monkey

Could definitely make for an interesting recipe for Banannas Foster… 🙂
