Default Re: Ideas Are Easy

Working off the last idea, A sci-fi setting set after humans met high ubertech aliens, joined Ubertech aliens, fought in wars across universe for ubertech aliens, lost/won/doesn't matter the war, regressed to pastoral tech on many planets, populated many planets, got back almost to modern tech, discovered many ubertech items, ships and factories. Now the human race on one world is Pseudo-WW1 England another is Pseudo-WW1 Germany. WW1 with planetary invasions. Trench warfare with Nanotech instead of mustard gas. Bolt action Ultratech Guns.

I tried this one and it never really got off the ground. I blame PbP format.

An advanced race of aliens recruits a number of warriors from earth to fight in boarding actions. The 'patrons' have good technology but are themselves totally unsuited for hand to hand combat (too big, too small, too slow, mental blocks, can't stand the required temperatures or so forth). The humans find themselves view pieces of a quest to recover ancient artifacts. They also find themselves on something of a quest to learn more about their employers, and if they should really be working with them.

The plot was very similar to the one you proposed - you might like it (can be found on GOG.com).

An entity called the Harbriger of Nightmares decides to invade the world by calling upon Humanity's collective nightmares. Giant spiders, chtuluesque creatures, the Waffen SS...

He is opposed by the Vanguard of Dreams, guardian of humanity, who takes on the hopes of those who suffered greatly yet prevailed thanks to their dreams, to create an army to oppose the Harbringer of Nightmares. A bunch of Couriers, Commander Shepards, Samus Arans, Harry Potters, and miscellaneous tabletop RPG characters start popping up around the world. They are powerful but depends on the power of the dreams of the ones generating them to exist. (I am convinced dreams are one of the most powerful things to exists. I was bullied at schol and survvived thanks to the support I could get in my dreams.)

Aquis: The world of Aquis is a very different take on both medieval fantasy and swashbuckling. A TL 3 world where sailing was invented when the world was TL 1 and one that only consisted of small islands, the world of Aquis now lives in world where the world population can't possibly fit on the worlds land and now live on giant boats large enough for entire civilizations.

Age of storms: The modern day has been destroyed by countless mana storms from an unknown source, these storms have mutated the local wildlife into terrible monstrosities, enchanted items with powerful magic and have changed the properties of the very earth itself. The players play survivors who have emerged from bunkers to explore this new and dangerous world that their home has turned into.

Lord of the dead: A TL 3 fantasy world but one that is different in two ways, first this world is going through a version of the black death that destroys the soul and the victims are left as wandering husks intent on devouring the souls of any they find, and second magic in this world powerful but slow requiring very specific materials and long casting times to perform.

Savages: A plague has killed 90% of the worlds population, and now for an unknown reason dinosaurs have come back from the dead. Basicly Mad Maxx meets Jurassic Park
