I am going to be running a game of Blue Planet starting next month and I am very nervous about it!The rules and setting are so in-depth that I don't even know where to start! And I am having a hard time finding any campaigns to base stuff off of. I guess what I am asking is for suggestions to help me and any campaigns yall have played before. Thanks for the help.

Noprob. Happy to help even if in crappy English.

Just one thing more: remember that Blue Planet is hard SF. Your players should acknowledge that and you should reward them if they will rely on rules of realism and act accordingly.

Show them that there's a fun in struggling with challenges like lack of electricity, parasites attacking people, spoiled food, enemies who simply guard their territory or things like that.

We often complain that players solve everything by applying the power of combat lasers and explosives. Blue Planet is the game that allow to turn the tide, so to speak.

Ha, turn the tide!

Blue Planet is frontier cyberpunk, ultimately, so think of stuff that fits those descriptors.

Anything with a space western or adventure pulp feel ought to work well, Firefly and Tales Of The Gold Monkey being good examples respectively. Heroes Of Rura-Tonga is a first-rate gaming resource in the pulp idiom. You can also mine the Serenity and Firefly RPGs for space western ideas.

Same goes for anything based on the "high-tech and lowlife" stories of William Gibson, such as Johnny Mnemonic and Burning Chrome. Steal ideas liberally from those and games like Corporation, SLA Industries, and Cybergeneration.

Dat feel, when people react with disgust when you introduce slutty captors and guardians to "locked up" scenario.

Dat feel, when you realize that political-correctness raised pussies, coming from the oversexualized world, see nothing wrong in cold-blood killing, but have trouble with guardians suggesting some help for sexual favors.

Dat feel, when RPGs are not about trying new possibilities anymore. Especially disturbing, questionable, provocative ones.

Dat feel, when there's yet another game within the game - predicting whether something may or may not trigger a violent outburst of your players.

Fuck, I'm old.

here's a hint: if you're idea of making the story dark and edgy is to "bring on the sexy", you're probably not a good enough writer to do it right. Sex is a lazy way to make a story dark and edgy. Sure, it CAN be done in an interesting way that makes the experience worth sitting through the discomfort. It just rarely ever IS done right.

Generally, unless you are a writer for a living, you aren't going to do the story right. If you ARE a writer for a living, you know much better ways to establish your tone.

As much as people seem to be taking stances on this, the problem isn't that your group are "political-correctness raised pussies" or that you are a shitty GM (though it sounds like you are). The problem is just that your group isn't compatible. You and your players want different things. If you want to play with them, find a different game and story, contrarynto popular belief, just because you are the GM doesn't mean you get to choose everything and become king of your gaming group.

Meanwhile, if the story you are telling is more important then your players, find new players. You can tell your shitty story regardless of who is playing it.

You might then want to put a request in the stickied request thread at the top of the page. That way someone will read your request and you won't get slammed with abuse.

Fucking this.

I always fall into the trap of doing drastic amounts of research on something before even trying it. I did it with Warhammer, I did it with competitive Yu-Gi-Oh but the worst thing I did with was Dota 2. I spend so many hours reading guides, watching videos and discussing game theory that now I know a load but lack the skill to implement it ingame and it's rather frustrating. The only real way to learn something is to just do it. Yeah you'll suck at first but you'll get a lot better each time. After your sessions talk to your players and ask what you did well and what you could improve on.

While slightly sidelining the OPs question, how about non-rpg focused books that deal with teambuilding, project management and personality types? I find that quite a lot of the theories on those topics are very applicable to rpgs, since it is a group effort, after all.

There's a freeform RP going on called "After the Raid": http://z13.invisionfree.com/eRegime/index.php?act=idx

>The story of the game is that out of nowhere, an alien race appears, decimates every major city on Earth then lands with gigantic spaceships in areas with a large concentration of natural resources (Middle East, Siberia, Congo, Appalache, etc) and creates giant boreholes to drill the Earth. In the meanwhile, the wreckage of the UN stages a desperate resistance - great powers launches a series of nukes on these alien bases and basically human waves them. Some of them get destroyed, but ultimately the aliens send 10 more for every base lost - humanity is on the brink of extinction.

>Then only 2 months after they arrived, they simply pack and leave Earth, leaving behind a lot of the equipment and structures they brought/built, which buffles everyone - they basically defeated Earth and built up for a long-term presence, then they go away, leaving behind everything without actually drilling much. Then a week later, they receive a radio message, repeated for several days in all of Earth's languages, stating that the Mining Corporation has been fined by the Galactic Council for killing indigenous species on a planet and mining without license, so humans should stop worrying.

You create your own factions and start identified with either the resistance or collaborators.
