While Nefertiti Overdrive didn’t fund, I’m pretty sure I’m not just going to let it lie. I love this game. I love the experience around the table. I want to get this out there to people who got excited over it only to watch it die. So, no promises, but I am definitely exploring ways to pursue a release of Nefertiti Overdrive.

But very soon my home group in Ottawa will be completing the Nefertiti Overdrive campaign and we will be moving on to something else. I hope that this will be something that I might also be able to crowd-fund, but that’s getting a few steps ahead.

Right now, my group is mulling over the three options I offered. Those options only have working titles, and they are all more or less mash-ups, kind of like Nefertiti Overdrive was a mash-up of sword & sandal and wire-fu.

The three options are:

1) The Free Lances: the Black Company meets Shogun – the PCs are the foreign bodyguards of the Necromancer Queen who need to protect her from her husband, returning from the grave and siphoning off her powers.

2) A Team of Losers: the recent A-Team movie and the Losers comics meets Supernatural – the PCs are a spec ops force conducting foreign internal defence in the Central Asian Republic of Albenistan when everything gets all paranormal.

3) Starship Commandos: Heinlein’s Starship Troopers meets Aliens – the PCs are Colonial Rangers, tip of the spear light infantry utilizing the state-of-the-art powered armour known as Harnesses, sent down to the planet of Logan’s Cross which has unexpectedly gone completely dark.

I’ll let you know which one my group picks. You never know, I might have plans for the others games as well.

  1. All three of these sound great! I would go for the 1st and the third only because I have played in a few supernatural games recently.

    1. You need to move to Ottawa so you can play these!

  2. I would live that. Of course with modern technology that is not necessarily a problem 😛

    1. As usual, you make a good point. Mark me as considering this option.

  3. I would vote for option 2 and 3 myself.

  4. Fraser, you should look into using the Apocalypse World engine to run some of these games. There are plenty of hacks to help with the flavour of the game, and I think you’d really dig the system. It seems right up your alley.

    1. But, but, . . . then I couldn’t design my own systems. I kinda like designing my own systems.

  5. Aha! But you can design your own Apocalypse World hack and make all the moneys – I mean, look at Dungeon World. All I’m saying is, you should try the game. I think you’d really enjoy it.

    1. So when are you running me through this Apocalypse/Dungeon World game?

      1. When will you next be in Kitchener?

  6. Touché! Though there are other means of gaming.
