Crossover Characters and Gameplay

Postby steampoweredgamer » Mon Sep 15, 2014 9:54 am

I know that everyone that plays Tephra plays it a bit differently.
How you play is influenced by what you like, which may end up influencing your own rendition of Tephra.

I know that Rozial and I have taken materials and concepts from other game systems, shows, and lore of other universes and implemented them into our Tephra world. (Naruto, Warhamer 40k, the Fae, and more.)

I want to hear about what everyone has done to their games to accommodate other fan bases.

I typically base my dystopias within the 40k realm just because its so chaotic. I typically like a more oppressed fantasy feel to my games where -its dark and hell is hot-
Despite this being "Steampunk", I lean toward a CyberPunk side of things to say the least.

I've always felt that 40k is a great realm ripe for steampunking:
Orks are very junkpunk.
Space Marines and the Imperial Guard are quite dieselpunk.
Elder are similar to what I can arcanapunk (mechanized magic).
Necrons are akin to a dark arcanapunk. Same with the Dark Eldar, though the Necrons also have a bit of cyberpunk.
Chaos is just flat twisted, but has a lot of messed up "biopunk."
Tyranids are even more "biopunk" (it's kinda their shtick).

I can imagine a cyberpunk Tephra; just take aether power, fuse boxes, and graviton spheres and run with them for a while. It'd be pretty awesome.
Never plan anything.
