I have a handful of ideas roleplay rolling around in my head. I have yet to choose which one I want to finish first, (I have one I might prefer, but I won’t tell you which). Right now I’m enjoying designing on these on and off, and not be tied down to any specific project. And it remains to be seen if I ever finish any of them.
But in these corona times I suddenly have more time to move forward with one or more of them. So I thought I’d share these lose ideas with you, and see, if your input, critique and encouragement would help me forward with any of them. So what do you think?
If you want to help me you can answer these questions below:
- From the brief description what questions do you have to one or more of the ideas?
- What pitfalls do you see?
- Is there anything particular interesting you see in some of the ideas?
And ofcourse most importantly:
- Which one would you most like to play?
Enders academy (working title)
World at war with aliens, youth trained as commanders and soldiers. There will be combat training, devious manipulative tests, fair (and unfair) fights in a combat arena with nerf guns, conflicts between teams, conflicts within teams (and conflicts within characters). Its teen drama with laser guns and the threat of aliens! Think Ender’s Game and Starship Troopers meets College of Wizardry and Lindängen.
(A weekend larp)
We cut back and forth between the conquistadors, Sir Walter Raleigh and a group of teenagers, all looking for the fabled Eldorado, each tracing the steps of the former. All three adventures end in blood and tears because Eldorado is a fiction thought up by greed. (Very much inspired by this youtube video)

Say goodbye to me
Five terminally ill patients decide to take back control of their life (and death), by holding one last party, before they are gone. We follow the five and their loved ones up to and after the party. Inspired by episode 12, season 2 of Grace and Frankie. I still can’t decide whether or not to include euthanasia as part of the story.

An evening as myself
A group of closeted queer youth go out to an LGBTQ youth meet up, and for the first time in their life they can express their true self. We follow them before and after this event.
(A Fastaval scenario with potential for expanding to a weekend larp)
Wall-E larp (working title)
Having done what they were built for for 500 years, cleaning up after humanity is gone, a group of robots find new meaning when they discover a television, holding messengers from long lost humans.
