Racing & Vehicular Combat in Basic Roleplaying Posted July 28 · Report reply 23 hours ago, g33k said: Well now, that sounds like an RPG premise! 😉 👍 Add in the twin premises that: (a) the mutants / ex-soldiers are (in)famous for griping about "the good old days" when they had respect for fighting the aliens, and due to various "vet syndrome" issues (PTSD/etc, addiction, and so forth) occasional bouts of paranoia/hallucinations that "the aliens are ba-a-a-a-ck!" 😵 (b) actually, the aliens are back (never really left), this time waging a completely covert campaign of psych-ops & discrediting/undermining the mutants with both general public & various government forces, until they have weakened Earth enough to make it a pushover next time they come in force ... 👽 21 hours ago, Atgxtg said: how about (c) the mutants were really test tube babies reverse engineered from alien DNA. I can't speak for my players, but these ideas sound great! They will have to deal with all the grumpy mutants while uncovering the alien conspiracy and their own terrible origins. On top of keeping up in the races! The climax and a few other points will probably involve the players having to take their vehicles out of the track to fight their enemies head on or even on foot! Though their cars and weapons might not be the best against real war machines, to say nothing of their own armor against actual ordnance.
