Re: Journey beyond the Tannhäuser Gate

Well, Bladerunner takes place in a neo noir setting. That usually means urban locations. In what way would descriptions of off world colonies be neo noir? I think it’s a question of what the conceptual core of this game really is. In the movies, we never see anything off world. We just know that som...

Re: spies in the alien universe

Since this is a corporate setting, there should be corporate spies. To me, it’s all about who is in control of the most important secrets. I’d say, it’s mainly corporations like W-Y and Seegson. I would also say that UPP probably has some kind of KGB. The stuff you mention above may exist too, but ...

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...
