#4939875 Unextraordinary: You are no one special – an RPG

Posted by on 13 May 2012 - 02:41 PM

Most RPG's follows Campbell's monomyth: ordinary person in ordinary place becomes hero in a fantastical place. Old Man (Gandalf, Obi-Wan) comes to young boy and gives him a magical object (ring, wand, lightsaber).

Well, screw that. Let's say you (the player character) is just ordinary. There are heroes, sure, but you're not it. The Old Man won't ring on your doorbell. You're unlikely to get a lightsaber. You're likely to get a cold.


What do you think about this as a premise for an RPG? What would you expect of the game?

All constructive feedback is welcome!
