So I'm begining work on a new game, for once not organized arround a contest or anything , mostly for the exercise of it. I'm trying to embody some new (to me at least ) principals into my game design, and am looking for some ideas
1> Interesting RPG premises, I tend to make pretty trad games and while i am trolling the 6 random things thread that's floating arround here somewhere, I just thought I would ask if there was anything in rpg's people that was intersting and was underrepresented (I don't think a game about space marines or dungeons and monsters would perhaps be adding a whole lot but who knows)
2> Interesting RPG mechanics, As I said before, I tend to do the trad thing with the dice and stuff betraying my d20 gamer upbringing, but I'm always looking for new and nifty dice card social interaction rules.
Essentially I am just looking for something to rift on
Thanks for any and all ideas forthcoming,
