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.
