I’m working on a forged in the dark game - updating my existing Starguild setting and bringing it into the FitD system. My existing setting is space opera noir, and I think FitD is a nice fit for some of the things I want to be important in the game.
My working title is Starforged noir.
Players can start as individuals meeting in the room behind a bar and gradually build their own organisation into an interstellar powerhouse.
They might be building a diplomatic, trading or mercenary guild. They might be members of a noble family who want to improve their political standing. They could even be attempting to set up a criminal syndicate that spans worlds. Whether they are forging their organisation like hot metal on an anvil, or like a careful art forger pulling the wool over the eyes of the rich and famous… well, they can forge their guild whichever way they want.
I’ve put together playbooks for the Explorer, Grifter, Mastermind, Mercenary, Spy and Boffin. My first two Playtests with those playbooks was fun, and I’m focussing on the diplomat guilds because I want to see how well we can handle games of negotiation and diplomacy.
I’m currently working on how to have Tier scale more dramatically when working on a larger canvas, and how to build secrets and betrayal more organically into the game.
