My name is Daniel Beals, and I am currently developing a SF table-top RPG called MÃ–BIUM.
The game is being independently developed by an army of ONE, and has thus far been much like running a marathon...The finish line is still a long ways off.
You can find more information and preview material at http://www.mobiumrpg.net and the designer's Blog is at http://mobiumrpg.blogspot.com.
I'd be happy to receive any questions or comments, and have been (thus far) successfully using feedback to make decisions throughout the design process.
I will leave you with the current advertising blurb for the setting:
At first glance, the Future Setting of MÃ¶bium appears to have all of the characteristics of a â€œHardâ€ Science Fiction RPG, save for the very existence and discovery of the element known as MÃ¶bium.
When this previously unknown element rains down throughout the Solar System in 2023 in the form of a massive asteroid incursion, the initial impression is that the unavoidable impact with Earth can be nothing less than an Extinction Level Event.
But humanity does survive; and upon doing so, the very nature of MÃ¶bium is eventually harnessed to become an extraordinary, evolutionary tool.
Effectively, the element becomes a catalyst that ushers our current day scientific limitation towards an unlimited future of nuclear fusion, graviton mechanics, quantum computing, and a Universal Theory of Physics.
The effect on the private sector is profound; as the full scope of the Solar System is opened up to exploration, cultivation, colonization, and most importantlyâ€¦Ownership.
The unqualified success and rapid expansion of Big Business renders national governments into extinction. Eventually, it appears that the only option to protect society lies in empowering massive Regulating Bodies to stabilize the gap between â€˜Individualâ€™ and â€˜Economyâ€™.
But what happens to the search for individual meaning in a future that has become so utterly dependent on systems? What becomes of freedom in the face of economic dependency? What becomes of opinion within the confines of regulated media?
These are the questions that must be answered by every individual living in the Future of MÃ¶bium. Is it simply enough to purchase and produce, so that society can maintain its current balance? Is Market Value the ultimate measure of human success?
Can you walk the line between Free Will and Regulation?
Or will you choose the path of The UnRegulated?
The choice is yours.
Welcome to MÃ–BIUM.
