    Hey /tg/, I had an idea recently.

    Goes like this: Steampunk, only with 1920's America style instead of Victorian England, with non-standard magic involved.

    I'm thinking Allomancy, but that might just be my raging hard-on for Brandon Sanderson speaking.

    Not sure if it'll be a game or a story yet, but IF i were to run such a game, how would I do it? I'm hoping that there's an alternative to GURPS for this.

    Since otherwise someone would ask, next 'Examples of Play' story update (steadily becoming the most inaccurate name ever...) will probably update this weekend.

    Sort of. 1920's asthetics and political climate mixed with subtly anachronistic, gas powered tech. SoTC and Savage Worlds would be good systems to run this type of game in.

    I made a human "cyborg" out of parts from a transfer truck, so he has piston powered legs, two short exhaust pipes jutting up from his right side back and his right arm is a pull chord activated power fist. He's one of Hoover's top investigators in the strange and unusual.

    I started this thread for advice, not to listen to a dickhead say my kind of fun is wrong. Just because you were obviously raped as a child by some lone clockwork aberration doesn't mean everyone has to hate the genre.

    Idea: The Robotic Sufferage Movement

    Invented in the 1800s, the machine men represents this world's unique labor intensive workforce. Thousands of machines built to perform any number of functions much more efficiently than humans can. The first generation machines have the intelligence of a small child. Second generation machines however have started to form complex and intelligent thought easily equal to that of genius humans.

    Humanity lives rather comfortable lives based on the almost slave work of their machine creations. Machines however are mistreated and greatly prejudiced, especially by the lower classes whose jobs were replaced.

    These second generation robots though few in number have aroused an almost religious fervour amongst the first gens to demand equal rights for robotkind. Different countries deal with it in different ways, (segregation, magnetings, even all out war).

    Most governments have stopped research and construction of more second generation machines but an underground pro robotic movement is building and researching a theoretical Third Generation Machine that would link itself into every single machine on earth and form an all encompassing and collectively intelligent god. Pro humanity factions have been waging a secret war to prevent this from occuring.

    Just some brainstorming ideas, use em at your whim.

    This is why we can't have nice things.

    More like people getting super paranoid about having metal in their body.

    But would Ruin and Preservation be part of this? Otherwise Hemulurgy is just a very brutal way of gaining power. I could see it being something that's not well received, but I don't see why it would need to be evil. Without Ruin, it just becomes a power gained through sacrifice. I mean, you could have a Hemalurgic piercing that you got because your loved one created a Hemalurgic spike with their last bit of life so that they could protect you after they're gone.

    Or, you could be a former Inquisitor type. Without someone like the Lord Ruler burning Duraliminum and Brass, or Ruin whispering in your ear, there'd be no reason for you to be insane.

    That said, are you going to use the other things, like Nicrosil and Cadmium and all that? Will the players be Mistings or Mistborn?

    It's like if one of those sword-fags on /k/ got their way.

    If I remember right, there was a mention of guns or gunpowder in the first book, and that the Lord Ruler went there PERSONALLY to kill everyone involved, to ensure that shit didn't spread.

    In any case >>7461174 Suggested guns that used Steam and/or compressed air to shoot bullets.

    The trouble with attempting a steam-punk scenario in the twenties is that technology has largely already picked up to where most things were being attempted in your 'normal' Victorian steampunk era.

    The technology that can benefit from steam-punk technology by the 20's are (arguably)-

    >Some Vehicles
    >Pseudo Science (Magc)

    Robots are impossisble, but with 20's tech and super powered steam they become possible.

    A Tommy Gun is already scary as fuck, but adding steam compression means that shit is shooting through walls.

    Cars arn't impressive yet, tanks are sub-par, flying machines could use some improvement... hello steam!

    And of course, most pseudo-sciences (and magic itself) can see humongous boosts from steam punk tech, whether its something like a mechanical alteration to ones own limbs or potentially something as far gone as Bioshocks plasmids.

    So i'll reiterate Bioshock in case tht point hasnt sunk home yet.

    Bioshock has Fuck-all to do with steampunk, and it's connections to 1920's culture is tenuous at best.

    The compressed air/ceramics actually makes guns LESS scary.

    Also going to recommend that you only allow logical combinations as fair as what you can burn, if you're in-between a Misting and a Mistborn.

    People in that category should either be able to burn an internal-external pair, a push-pull pair, an entire quadrant, or two quadrants.

    Also, somebody burning duralumin and using that to boost nicrosil should allow for some stupidly broken things.

    Just looking at the metals themselves, I think it might work exactly like that.

    Which is also probably why Sanderson didn't reveal them until afterwards, and had the characters not even know those Allomantic metals existed: the four he left out would have made the series a whole lot shorter.

    I mean, can you imagine Vin burning cadmium and cerrobend during her fights? Or being able to just touch one of her Misting/Mistborn opponents while using chromium and say "lolno"? Or her and Elend setting up a nicrosil-nicrosil-duralumin cycle?

    No, anyone can burn Aluminum, because the Steel Inquisitors force captured Mistings to burn it. It's also reasonable to assume anyone can burn Duraliminum because it's Aluminum's alloy.
    >> Kemosabe 01/06/10(Wed)19:50 No.7462363

    I see where the confusion was.

    They forced Vin to burn it, because they knew she was a mistborn, and thus could burn all metals.

    It actually mentioned in book three that not many of the Steel inquisitors had Duraluminum spikes, because the only way they could get them was killing mistborn.

    As aluminum and duraluminum mistings are fucking impossible to find, but exist.

    And only they and mistborn can burn those metals.

    Mistbloods as the in-betweens.

    Mistborn should be an option for PCs, but an incredibly expensive one if you're doing this as a point-buy. Otherwise, it only becomes an option if you stumble across some larasium.

    If you're going with Mistborn stuff, definitely throw in the koloss and the kandra. Well, the kandra at least.

    Elves really depends on what that idea is; I'd need to hear it to say something more useful. But I would definitely go with having all of your non-human races be originally derived from somebody holding the power and fucking around with global biology.
    >> Kemosabe 01/06/10(Wed)20:46 No.7463116

    Koloss wouldn't really fit the rest of it, Kandra... Debatable as to how well they might work, but that idea has potential.

    As to the elves thing, having them be a product of MAD SCIENCE almost makes the idea better.

    The idea for elves is that they more or less evolved from cats, that they only protected nature because that's where they got their food from. Like the grace is sleek and predatory, not 'tralala prance with the woodland creatures'.

    In the right circumstances, fighting an Elf would be fucking HORRIFYING.

    Think about it, they can see better than you, they can hear better than you, they've spent potentially hundreds of years learning how to hunt and kill, and they KNOW the area you're in better than you.

    I wouldn't go with cats, because "cats" and "elves" together is going to make everyone think "Avatar".

    But perhaps they were designed to do environmental upkeep. Woods elves keep the forests tidy, plains elves manage the herds, sea elves tend the kelp and reefs...

    And all varieties are instinctively programmed to prune anybody who fucks with their stuff.

    Also, dwarves would be fun for this sort of setting, because of how their metal-heavy culture would interact with a world full of people who fuck with metal on a daily basis.

    Basically, whoever had the power was a bit better with the whole thing than the Lord Ruler was. So when he started changing things to his liking, he also set up redundant biological systems to make sure the ecosphere remained stable. The elves manage living things, the dwarves manage geological processes. Maybe have some other species made to deal with large-scale repairs and alterations, along with stuff like atmospheric composition and global climate patterns.

    That's an interesting approach, but I was going to change 'enviromental guardian' to a sort of guardian figure for the god-king at the time.

    Works like this: Anyone could have used the well, and anyone who DID use it would gain a fuck-ton of power just by contacting it (like a 10-15 level BOOST).

    God-kings are more common than one might think, as the well recharges a lot faster (think 50-100 years instead of 1000). So some of them use their new power to gain immortality and try to rule all (Lord Ruler) some might take their new power, and use it to rule others justly (Lord Nasher from Faerun) or could just take the power and go dick around (James the Wanderer) or use it not to rule, but to serve in a greater way (Medivh from Warcraft 3).

    more or less the person decides the power, and some people FUCK THINGS UP, some help to fix it, and others twink it to fit their needs/wants better (ie. Elves were created by someone who didn't trust magic, and wanted a bad-ass protecting him. one guy made inquisitors, another made... etc.)

    When using the well, they basically have infinite power for about ten minutes. Then they just become a bad-ass, not omni-potent.

    The opinions on the other immortal varies greatly, depending on who you ask.

    Some of them also claim to be gods, others claim to be a Pope of sorts, others just want to run a pub somewhere. There's at least one mistaken individual who believes that if he killed everyone else he would gain... fuck, super immortality? He's kinda fucked in the head.

    Only two obvious rules, that every action has consequences, and you can only do it ONCE.

    tl;dr? Demi-gods are everywhere, the world is held together by duct-tape, and there's one dude who took highlander WAY to serious.

    And then there's Sazed, who's just walking the earth and wondering what in the fuck people managed to do to it.

    Thread is tl;dr, But if your looking for weapon ideas for your setting look up Bioshock weapons, Cogs on my shotgun? YES PLEASE.

    Is this campaign supposed to be set sometime after the events in the trilogy, or is it a different universe with some similar concepts? I ask because, IIRC, the Well fills with Preservation's power as a part of the prison for Ruin's mind, so with Sazed running everything, the Well wouldn't really be necessary.

    It's not ACTUALLY in the mistborn world, it's just more or less based off it.

    with 1920's steampunk robot/elf gangsters.

    Go read Snow Crash and then steal Raven wholesale, because a guy using a fuckton of glass knives would be a nightmare for a Mistborn to fight.

    Anyone else want to contribute?

    If I'm gonna turn this into a game, we need to have an idea for the crunch.

    Is there a system that could even comprehend this? This is really starting to look like homebrew here, and the one guy I know who's good at crunch is busy.

    Well, I'll admit that I've been whoring Eclipse Phase a lot, but it might actually be a good starting point, especially in how they handle Psi stuff in relation to the rest of the gameworld.

    Point-buy is pretty much required for character creation, at least if you want to have a chance of not making starting Allomancers or Feruchemists automatically broken compared to everyone else.

    Dude, choces are:

    The latter two don't NEED magic, elves are fucking action Ninjas, and the other choice is a goddamned ROBOT.

    I'm thinking it's going to be a pick an archtype, with a degree of customization mixed in to each individual class.

    why is there no talk of rum running and prohibition era antics

    Robots carrying alcohol in kegs on their back on the bottom of a river to smuggle it in, elven gangs making entire sections of forest unnavigatable so as to prevent cops from seeing their distilleries... the fun goes on.
    >> Kemosabe 01/06/10(Wed)23:37 No.7465755
    There was actually. A guy mentioned it earlier, talked about running potions like moonshine.

    Entertaining, because potions do QUITE A BIT MORE than get you drunk.
