I’ve got some people wanting to try Sorcerer, and along with some of the settings I’ve already got, I was thinking of doing something in the 40K universe.
And then I realized I really didn’t want to spend a lot of time learning the 40K universe. So I decided to just steal the art and make up my own setting!
Future Perfect takes place at the End Times of Earth’s history: Resources are running low, wars are still being fought, dynastic families struggle to keep their families and their people alive.
Sorcerers are people who use psionic abilities forged from their own thoughts melded with armored power suits.
• LORE is Selfishness.
• DEMONS are the powered armored suits.
• HUMANITY is Compassion – the ability to see the greater good of humanity, act on the needs of others not connected to you, forswearing or sacrificing your own needs or the needs of those closest to you for someone else.
• RITUALS are acts that rob others of life, love, security and dignity in the name of serving one’s own interests or the interests of those one loves
• At a HUMANITY OF 0 the Player Character can care only for his own needs, losing all connections with those he once fought for or loved. He becomes a gabbish, wandering the land slaughtering all and taking all he finds for himself.
I slammed together a five page PDF to show to my players. You can see it here.
