Ideas for a game

So, after lostsatyr and I finished watching My-Hime earlier this week (great series, btw; I heartily recommend it), I started getting ideas for a game based on the "fighters of evil in high school" genre (and just to reassure my current players, the WtA game is still going strong - this is just something I'm working out for the eventual future). Figuring that trying to fit everything I wanted for the game into the mordern, mundane world just wasn't going to work, and after reading up a bit on My-Otome, an alternate-universe version of My-Hime (of which I own the first DVD - yes!), I decided that I'm going to just create my own universe.

After considering and discarding a number of systems (oWoD, Mage: The Awakening, Scion), I figured on using either "classic" (e.g., CJ Carella's WitchCraft) or cinematic (e.g., Buffy the Vampire Slayer) Unisystem. I like some of the elements of cinematic Unisystem (Drama Points and some of the package deals), but I prefer the magic system from classic (the one from cinematic Unisystem is a little too...well, cinematic for my tastes).

After a discussion with lostsatyr, we came up with the idea of trying to incorporate the Drama Points into the classic Unisystem and seeing how that works. So far, at least, it sounds like a viable idea.

The game world is still in the planning stages - once I get it nailed down a bit more, the background information will probably start appearing here or in greengamersglen. I do know that i want to incorporate a number of the package deals from the Buffy and Angel games, but with changes made to better fit the game world (like removing the gender restriction for the Slayer package).

More to come (eventually)....

You'll have to tell me how the Drama points in classic unisystem work.

I've been working on my own re-write of the system (based on problems I have with the 1d10 meaning that you have a 10% chance of all results), but that's just me.
