@Sandra they system might be interesting, but I'm not eager to play them anyway. Also, I'm not interested in backstories or canon. I'll just mess it up.
@kennon strangely, I'm mostly ok with that. Especially if it is a simple ruleset. Would love to play in a game of White Star.
Maybe I'm just afraid to mess up canon?
@gunnar Right on. I can see that. There's certainly some pressure inherent to working in an established IP world.
And they usually aren't set up in an open-ended way to explore and build it the same way that a from-scratch setting is, even if it's heavily inspired by some existing IP.
@AetherEgo Alien is prob the one exception I will allow myself. Only because it seems so easily gamified. But, then again, I would rather be in a Mothership-game doing mostly the same things.
In my opinion, the success of #Mothership is deserved!
Licensed games die far too easily, in my experience. I like the #Alien movies a lot….
The system worked for us quite well. Don’t want to run it as campaign. The material is pretty neat.
#Mothership appears to be more wild and creative….
