I’m all over day 2’s question, which is: what is an RPG you would like to see published?
Oh boy! I have gone on record many times that I think it is an absolute sin that we have yet to see an official Mass Effect RPG. We have Green Ronin’s Dragon Age RPG, but did Bioware not think there might be some Mass Effect fans in the tabletop community?
Normally, this is where I’d blame the money-grubbers at EA and say they don’t think it’d be profitable but, as I mentioned, we have the Dragon Age RPG waiving at us with a big goofy grin. It haunts me, truly.
The only thing I don’t know is what system. Green Ronin did a very good job of the Dragon Age setting. This could be their opportunity to take the AGE system into SPACE. Fate Core and Accelerated could do a really good job, as my own efforts have shown me. Fantasy Flight Games system, as seen in their Star Wars product is a good candidate, but I’d prefer a system that ends up less bulky than that. Any system that lends towards simple, clean mechanics with a narrative or cinematic flair could do (so let’s get it done EA Bioware).
Got a setting, concept, or mechanic you’d like seen turned into an RPG? Let me know in the comments or link to your prefered platform of expression. This is a month of discussion, this is #RPGaDay!
