IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THE FILM THERE WILL BE SPOILERS AHEAD, SO YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
I want to give my readers a quick review of a film I saw this weekend.
“GASP…… a non gaming post, how can he do this to us?”
Well yes technically its not a gaming post as such……but I have just seen a whole new world that I would love to roleplay in.
“OK……let you off this time!”
Inception has to one of the best ideas for a roleplaying world ever. Going deep inside peoples dreams to steal secrets, fighting with their subconscious and with power over the world…..Oh boy! During the whole film I was thinking this would make an brilliant idea for a roleplay and it even made me start thinking about which system to use.
And there’s the rub, which system can be used to control a world where anything is possible? Not held in check by a genera but by what the person is dreaming. A system where everything can change.
Inception was written and directed by Christopher Nolan of Batman Begin’s and Dark Knight fame. I think it was also inspired by a film I loved from my childhood in the 80′s called Dreamscape.
I am going to have to give this some thought and will get back to you if I can find a system. By the way SEE THE FILM. Angry Joe is SOOO right it has to be seen on the big screen.
Also does anyone have any suggestions on a system to use, I have been looking at Savage Worlds….Darn it, a Matrix roleplay would be almost perfect.
