There's a weird little unfinished comic series called Outer Darkness, that'd make an awesome setting for a .

It's set in a space opera sort of universe that's full of supernatural horror. Deep space is full of horrific ghosts, demons, and spirits. The tone is sort of a grim, Lovecraftian Star Trek.

Starships are powered by bound gods that demand human sacrifice for FTL travel. Ship's crews have oracles, exorcists, and morticians who can resurrect the souls of dead crewmen.

If I can ever find the time, I'm going make this into a workable RPG.

All I need to do is decide on a system. Probably Cepheus Engine, or Stars Without Number. Mothership might also work quite well.

@ng76 Sounds really cool. I'll have to keep an eye out for it next time I'm at the bookstore!
