PbC Alternate History Game

PostPosted by hippie_mama » Mon Feb 07, 2011 2:09 pm

I'm thinking about giving the PbC thing another shot if i can rally some interest; help me figure out what you want to play, so we can blame it on the lack of players in general rather than bad ideas :P

I like the idea of either regular WW2, but I also like verd's idea of a hellboy like WW2 game, where we fight the Thule Society and all kinds of nasty critters and Nazi's with flamethrowers and big missile launchers!

I like the WW2 spies the best (especially since I am playing Saboteur right now lol)

I like the Civil War Supers if it was somewhat like the Alvin Maker series from Orson Scott Card: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tales_of_Alvin_Maker

The Ninja vs Samurai could be very cool... bit I feel that in order to do a character justice, I would really have to research how they interacted and whatnot... so I'm going with the WW2 Spies or Civil War Supers.

Personally i could only do mondays currently, well wednesday and thursday is sorta possible, but that be kinda tight, starting at 2 I'd be able to play for four hours before id have to go to bed, and thats already kinda late. So it'd be far from ideal. European timezones probably wont be ideal for others anyway so we'll have to see if it works.

Huh. The poll is actually pretty close now. What if i ran all three on an alternating schedule? If you're only interested in one, you can just show up every third week. Might help with the general funk we've been in too to have several settings going on at once.

Or i could run each one on a different day, but it would still only be every third week, cause my head will explode if i try to run 3 PbCs along with my 2 PbPs lol

I am more than cool with playing a game once every third week!

I wouldn't mind actually playing again as well! Though most mondays through thursdays are iffy for me, I think saturday or sunday evenings would be ideal if I could put in my vote. All three settings appeal to me as well, making it a hard choice...though I am currently leaning towards the WWII era at the moment unless both are run on days I could make it, or just alternate weeks on a day I could make it. Have to see where that goes.

I really need everyone who wants to play to vote for a day and time on the individual thread/s for each game they are interested in.
