    I was wondering first off if there was a fururistic RPG, and second if there's not it we could make one. It would have a good supply of plot twists, and I was wondering if anyone had an idea for that typee of thing.

    Definitely no reason we can't have a futuristic RPG. Elysium is open to all RPGing ideas. Since the three others are fantasy based, it'd be a nice change.

    If anybody had a good idea. Write it up. Don't make me have to be creative. :p

    The idea sounds good, It may be a good change to break away from the generic fantasy plot rule:

    "Find a special magical item and/or destory and ancient evil force/creature"

    For a futuristic plot it may require some more complex themes depending what kind of era you want ro where its set, space, earth, or another planet, or in the near or distant future.

    I think the best thing to do would be to use this thread to make up the setting we want the RPG in and then we can decide what might be going on there that we can make a good RPG out of.

    shadow run and cyber punk are both old RPGs set in the future, they used alot of different races and the idea was insted of magic you used technology, like guns, vibro swords, optical dart guns, etc, shadow run had magic too, but cyber punk if you have genetic enhancements eventually you would go crazy and die, it adds some interesting possibilities, the most recent updates of these games are Shadow run Duels by Wizkids which flopped after about three months of being on the market, and the Cyberpunk cardgame, which I don't remember the copany for

    yeah, but I think we'd have to establish every race that could be used

    I Love the idea of setting an RPG in the future, you'd have to decide if it would be earths future or another planets future, also it would have to original.

    What about cross-over types? I have this kinda vague roleplay character elsewhere who is very basically a Warhammer 40K Eldar Exarch in the Star Wars universe... and is heaps fun once I set some groundwork up with the other RPers who were using conventional SW kinda chars.
