Re: A New Life awaits you in the Off-World Colonies

I think it’s very simple. Bladerunner is a dystopian neo noir setting set mainly in L. A.. In what ways would additional cities and off-world colonies make the game more interesting? Isn’t the main location interesting enough? I think it is, and it’s for sure very noir. And I think that’s the core o...

Re: Drakar och Demoner - Tankar om valet av illustratörer...

Glorantha meets Pugmire...?

Hmm....
Ja, typ så. Jag tror att det vore både kul och kommersiellt vettigt att sätta ankorna i centrum.

Re: History of the ALIEN Universe

To me, the really interesting question is: what kind if timeline would be most useful in this game? And to answer that question in a meaningful way, you would need to know what the game is all about. I’d say it’s NOT about aliens. Rather, it’s about mankind’s encounter with alien life. That’s quite ...

Re: Drakar och Demoner - Tankar om valet av illustratörer...

Vad kan Drakar & Demoner bli som Svärdets Sång inte redan är? Den frågan tror jag behöver ett tydligt svar. Svaret KAN vara Ereb Altor, men det känns inte helt klockrent eftersom den spelvärlden på olika sätt är i bruk i andra närtida produktlinjer. Och hur kul ÄR egentligen ett Ereb Altor egentlige...

Re: Memories as game features

1. In this video there are several interesting thoughts on what memories, intimacy and touching means in Bladerunner. There are also some quite revealing details about the Russian-American writer Vladimir Nabokov and one of his novels - an obvious inspiration for the second movie. https://m.youtube....

Re: A New Life awaits you in the Off-World Colonies

OK, I think that has been made clear now. I suggest that we return to something else: what could the off-world colonies bring to the urban L. A. neo noir setting? You could read about the colony Calantha here: https://bladerunner.fandom.com/wiki/Calantha I think stuff like that could be cool to use ...

Re: History of the ALIEN Universe

I guess we have already got more or less out of topic... But I’ll try to sort my thoughts on some of the stuff we have discussed so far in this thread: 1. Contradictions or not. As I’ve said above: the internet is full of (often upset) comments about the similarities and differences between the Spac...

Re: A New Life awaits you in the Off-World Colonies

Well, you can link them in your own campaign, but a publisher like Free League can’t because Bladerunner and Alien are different properties owned by separate companies. To merge two different franchises is very hard from a copyright and brand point of view. You would mess with two franchises at the ...

Re: A New Life awaits you in the Off-World Colonies

Exactly. The off-world colonies should (must?) mean something in this setting. In a way it’s kind of like another city or continent. People go there and there are news and rumours coming from those other places. In Bladerunner you might also encounter people from New York, but you don’t need a Manha...

Re: A New Life awaits you in the Off-World Colonies

Outland is a separate franchise, right? It’s all about ownership. Bladerunner isn’t Outland from a legal, copyright point of view. I’d say that combining two separate franchises and making that a new canon would be very hard. It would be a total rebranding that I find very unlikely. Of course, you c...
