“Release the Atomics!”

Some folks in Toronto are using Donjon to run some Space Opera, and recording the results on RandomWIki.
The game setup:

  • Rocketships have to look like ROCKETSHIPS, with sleek shapes, fins, sparklers sticking out their butts, etc.
  • Rayguns need to look like RAYGUNS
  • Flash Gordon-esque, but updates ala transhumanist stuff (Iain Banks) are also possible
  • Set in Solar System, with the caveat that every planet/moon in the solar system is not only inhabitable in some way, but also inhabited
  • Lots of planet hopping
  • First person who brings up a law of physics to say something can’t happen gets kicked out

That last rule makes me happy.

That said, assuming you’re honoring ALL the rules, ‘going crazy’ with the last rule really shouldn’t be a bad thing — it’ll simply mean you’re really revving up inclusions that follow all those other guidelines, which simply reinforces the awesome.

Was that aimed at me?
But seriously, there’s a big difference between a Gordonesque universe and one largely based on ours with a few things added, like Firefly’s.
Bring on the Wing-Men, the Hot Rain, the Robin Hood Chic, the Orgasmatron! (Wait, I think the last one was from Barbarella.)
