Back in early summer we were looking for ways to involve you and the rest of our community more in the development of our game. Many of our game scenarios represent big plot points in our story arc, we had 2 scenarios ready which we had not written yet as stories and our friend William Brown at Hungry Gamer suggested we let our facebook community tell us what they wanted to see. First we had a vote on which scenario, and then assemble to the 2 teams to play.
So we’ve talked about how we create a character and how we use the Genesys RPG system to help us fill out the details of our worldbuilding for Omicron Protocol. Now I’m going to give everyone a little bit of a background on WHY we spend this much time and effort creating, researching, and writing (through our awesome writer, Nick Brown) about each character.
Pining for an RPG
Early this year I was working myself into a frenzy of wanting to play an RPG. It's been a few years since my old Edge of the Empire campaign died off, since then I've run a couple one-shots of Age of Rebellion, the D&D 5e beginner box when it came out. Snacks, I was starting to feel really hungry.
So the last few nights we've been writing a lot. Mostly writing the 1st draft of our rules. Today, while working with our writer, Nick Brown, we realized that to do more world building (that'll be in another series of posts later), we had to get all the outlines of our characters for the first few factions written out for him to reference and add into the world story.
