I concur. I'd love to play this scenario. It sounds amazing. I like it when I don't have all the facts and resources at my disposal and have to think and react like a real person.Reynard wrote:"You wake up at the controls of a ship's boat thats heading down towards a planet and you have no idea what you're doing here and have trouble remembering anything at all even your name, what do you do?"
I see nothing in the statement that the players' characters have forgotten anything but short term memories and who they are, amnesia plot. They still have their skills since they will need them in a moment and later once on the planet. That sounds reasonable enough. As to their earned gear from character generation, we haven't seen what's in the ship's locker on the SHIP'S BOAT! They have a ship's boat! Gee! Possibly a clue or there may be clues on board?
Quite frankly it sounds like the beginning of a very good scenario I'd love to play. Not every game has to be Shoot and Loot. Hopeless, if this is a real scenario, I'd love to have a copy to read.
I played a con game of Traveller recently with 4 other players who I did not know and they took so long trying to fix every angle in a 4 hour game they nearly run out of time to finish the story. Players like that need a kick up the ass like the intro to your story.
