My man David Prokopetz said,

Concept: a standard JRPG party, except the character arcs are rotated one place to the left. The chain-smoking middle aged cynic needs to get in touch with his feminine side, the talking animal mascot must confront the possibility of hope after a lifetime of disillusionment, the teenage jock struggles to be taken seriously, and the pink-haired healer chick is on a mission to punch God.

Inspiring, no?

You are a Traveler, one of twelve individuals who possess the most powerful object on Earth -- the timeband. Travelers can control time: slow time down, stop it, or travel to any era to rewrite history. Some Travelers are your allies. Others are your deadly enemies. All are engaged in a struggle spanning many centuries to achieve -- or prevent -- the destiny of mankind known as Variation Seven.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
Characters have a wide range of options and backgrounds. Some character ideas could get darker and there could be some humour. This is parallel to but different than the Suicide Squad that ran at ACNW.

Life has sucked... It was a crappy year...
First you were abducted from your home and had to escape. Then you ended up arrested by these jackboot goons who framed you and sent you to a nasty prison in the centre of the dimensions where you slaved for benefit of the Tree.
Now - they need you. They all need you!
Seems that one of your parents was a Lord of Creation, a Prince of Amber or Chaos and you have suppressed powers. You are a good guy, sort of, well, misunderstood.
Seems that Mandor and Fiona, your two Wardens have come around offering you a Pardon from their bosses to stop some very bad dude and his army of thugs from taking everything over. They are worse than Mandor and Fiona!
Now power has shifted - and you are ready to become with your fellow prisoners - the Guardians of Chaos and Amber.
The Universes will just not be the same again!

A FSP (First Series Purist) Star Wars adventure.

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away....

This game takes place about 20 years before A New Hope and will explore what the universe might have been like before the classic sci-fi trilogy. Players will build their characters by e-mail using the KEY RPG system before the con. The order of the Jedi have been dwindling for centuries and are believed by most to be a myth, but players can play Jedis if they wish. There's also plenty of opportunities for scoundrels with a weak spot for hard luck cases, soldiers with a conscience turning away from their training to do the right thing, or any other character concepts...as long as you are a character with some sort of moral code. (NO DARK SIDE CHARACTERS.)

Please note: To be clear, nothing that happened outside of the original movie trilogy is canon for this game. No Jar-Jar. No Trade Federation. This is an alternate Star Wars universe.

Elevator Pitch: In 1999, an alien Jedi master arrived on Earth and began training Padawans. Now, the students are ready to go out and change the world.

The game will use a diceless system featuring paths, virtues and temptations.

This is set on Earth. There are no droids, spaceships, hyperdrive engines, blasters or light sabers, and just the one alien.

PCs are humans aged 16-24 who have studied the mysterious Way with the Jedi master since 1999.

~30 years ABY

Just before the destruction of Republic capital on Hosnian Prime and the Resistance's retaliatory attack on the First Order's Starkiller Base there was a pitched battle between the two forces in the Western Reaches of the galaxy on the Mid-Rim world of Takodana. Once a haven for spies, pirates, smugglers and explorers, the battle left naught but ruins of Maz Kanata's castle, a free port that served the assorted scum and villany. The proprietress herself had spent centuries as a smuggler and pirate. Who knows what treasures might still be buried under the rubble?

In a world that has turned back from the brink of annihilation and the edge of the Singularity both, Queen Victoria rules the Empire of America. Europe is a transgenic nightmare, and top hats, spats and bustles are fashionable.

The technology to turn any random hydrocarbon chain into good food is cheap and plentiful - and artificially locked so that orphans have to work 80 hour weeks just to eat. A group of Anarchists and troublemakers have a Modest Proposal for another way to feed the poor.

The Nano-Victorian Future is a loose, episodic series - you don't need to have played in a previous game to join in.

The Nano-Victorian Future; A world of goggles, airships made of diamond, corsets and nanotech frock coats. A world where steampunk meets cyberpunk for high tea and memory implants.
