So I've been thinking about making an entire system based on Saga. I love the way scifi and fantasy are elegantly mixed yet still their own thing. I've already got some ideas on the mechanics for this, as well as classes and skills and such. I'd like to make it simple 3.5 or pathfinder but still diverse. i know this type of thing would be a fuck to of work, and even though i'm all over doing this i'm also a lazy piece of shit, so before i put all this effort into making this i'd like to know if any of you guys think this is something you'd play.
GURPS actually has an all the time core mechanic. It's not really complex to play, it just has a billion pages of options. Warhammer, maybe, but the point is that you can barely name anything, but every other game is less complex.
so for classes i was thinking of doing something ind of like oblivion where classes are based on skill branches. the branches being tech, combat and magic.
Tech would mean mostly guns and while still scifi it wouldnt be too outlandish stuff and a lot of them would reflect landfallian culture and characters.
magic would be the exact opposite and invlove mostly wreath themes.
combat would be more traditional melee stuff
so far these are the classes i have in mind
trooper: the standard assault rifle, grenades and stuff
pilot: while the ability to operate vehicles should be open for any character i wanted to make a class that focuses on it
cyberthief: idk what to call it but it'd be a stealth with pistols type thing with possible access to a limited version of hacking for stuff like another ships gps or doors or stuff. there isnt really an internet in the saga universe and keys and scrolls are still used, but you get the idea
Automater?: basically something to do with automatons and non sentient robots
as a hybrid class between tech and combat:
Cyborg: uses tech enhancements to improve on melee combat.
the usual stuff
fighter, monk, barbarian, rogue
the hybrid between combat and magic would be a spell soldier, which is basically a standard wreath soldier
Mage: basic spellcasting class. restricted to schools or specializations to turn it into any specific spellcaster like a cleric or necromancer or whatever
Artist: basically a bard but can use paint instead of song like Yuma, and can be more than just a support
Summoner: summons shit idk
the hybrid for tech and magic would be a spellslinger from wildstar, but im not sure on that one
How much have you smoked, son?
Seriously, though, I know you read over that post and realized you know less about this than you think you do. How about you write these ideas down somewhere neatly; watch some useful videos on dice mechanics, basic probabilities, and interesting game design; and then, revisit this because no one knows what the fuck you're talking about.
