ACUS games!!?!

Presumably as a side-effect of the reg page going up a month later than usual, there's only about a week until the end of game submission for ACUS.

This means I have to start and finish thinking about which games I am going to run, and soon.

Ideas I have so far;

  • Another Nano-Victorian Future game. I'm pretty confident that the setting and system are holding up for this one, since it seems to be working in my F2F game. I just need to come up with a plot, but for NVF, that shouldn't be too hard.

  • A consensual world style fantasy game using a set of diceless rules similar to the ones for NVF. I'd have to a) come up with a plot on the fly, and b) go for one of the longer slots so we'd have time to build the world and still have a game. I'd be nervous about the pacing/timing, especially since I doubt I'd have a chance to playtest it before ACUS.

  • Sleepers, a game of spies and secret agents. As previously mentioned, this needs some smoothing out still.

  • I could try to run Blood Shadow again, but I'm still feeling deflated from how last year's went, and I haven't figured out how to fix the setting.

  • I could maybe throw together a set of rules for a Jim Butcher Codex Alera game? And come up with a plot? Perhaps better I don't.

I'm interested in Primetime Adventures and In a Wicked Age, but I don't know the rules well enough to run either as yet.

I will probably end up running two games this year. One of them will almost certainly be Nano-Victorian Future. Any comments from the peanut gallery on which of the others sound good?

The rules for In a Wicked Age aren't as bad as they seem, it's just that the paperwork is different. I played a bit at Go Play NW a couple of years ago and with no one having played before it went well. If you're thinking of creating your own oracle, well, that's a different story. If you decide to do this, I'm glad to help if I can.

My only vote is that you run NVF again, as I'd love to play it again. :)

I am up for NVF, it is super fun.
As for the other games i already said how I fell bout Sleepers, the consensual world game appeals to me as well, if you are gonna run it and are unsure of the timing I'd suggest running it during one of the super long slots with a lunch break, then you can pad or whatever using lunch.

Sleepers sounds the most interesting to me, although it would depend on what system you wind up using to run it. I don't do well with systems where you have to keep jumping out of character.

Sleepers would use the "meta-diceless" (I really need a better name for it) system that I've been noodling over for a while - basically my own extrapolation from Amber, but with different attributes and powers, and a loose fate point mechanic.
