The ScribeVerse RPG
Okay, I'm getting brave here. I'd like to see a campaign set in the situation I created in my comedy-mystery, 'Dillo Talk. You can find it in my memories section at http://www.livejournal.com/tools/memories.bml?user=missmozell&keyword=Dillo+Talk&filter=all|
The basic situation is that of a small all talk cable station located in Hollywood. The original story followed a mystery involving corporate sabotage and murder, but that isn't necessary. It can be set after the incidents of the story, or just assume that the incidents of the story didn't happen. In any case, I think it would be fun for the players to create and star in their own little shows--cooking, crafts, self-help, trauma-of-the-week, animals, etc. Imagine Strife presiding over a Jerry Springer type show, Clive doing a 'Dr. Ruth' type show on sexual advice for the curious... It could be on camera and behind the scenes, too.
If we decide to do this story line, I want to claim Herbert 'Hank' Crank (who is the main character of the original story), Hunter Overend (who is a very popular up-and-coming young chef, and Hank's boyfriend) and to a lesser extent Chill Pill, (Hank's pet armadillo, who walks on a leash and uses a litterbox). I'd be perfectly willing to share Chill, as he'd make an amusing station mascot. :)
