So I just had a fun idea for a game a few days ago.
You play a character that has been approached by a mysterious man-in-black type to join an organisation where they feel your skills would be of value. Intrigued, you accept - and are suddenly drawn into a world of conspiracy where power is everything. You are now a low-ranking member of the Illuminati, a shadow organisation of the most powerful men and women in the world, controlling most aspects of society, and you have been invited to further their agendas. But, as you will soon find, they do not agree all the time on what their agenda is, and you will have to pick sides and manipulate public matters.
Basically, it’s a game about character relationships and political power. Your character’s past can be chosen from several backgrounds: some of the characters I have in mind are a former NASA scientist, a struggling novelist, a once-slightly-famous child model, and a social media personality / blogger. Your chosen background will alter stats including charisma, public image, knowledge, etc. There probably will be some ROs, but you’ll have to tread carefully.
In theory, the idea sounds good to me, but I’m wary about starting it since it feels like a big undertaking to me, and I’m not 100% sure where the story will go.
