RPG Idea: Demolition Derby with People Duct Taped to the Cars...

Weird Post-apocalyptic RPG Idea: Demolition Derby with living people strapped/duct taped to the cars. >:)

There can be only one...  That would be a bit messy. 

I bet meat hooks would work just as well.  lol.


All the cars have explosives that randomly detonate after 10 mins too.  Sure, why not. 

Might be fun for an Atomic Highway session, or Car Wars.

Dreams of the Dead: A Weird RPG Campaign Idea

Weird Campaign Idea: Dreams of the Dead.

A new experimental technology has been developed by a top secret government agency where a team of people are hooked up to someone's brain that has recently died (within the last 30 days). This team can sift through all of the dreams, nightmares, memories, thoughts, feelings, secrets, etc. of that person.

Their first trials had a nigh number of fatalities however, so now the government has "recruited" prisoners on death throw to do the dirty work. If after several of these extractions the death row inmates survive, they will be let free (or so the bureaucrats say).

I think this would be a lot of fun, and there could be a good amount of wiggle room for the players to add in narrative bits here and there too.

Cyberpunk RPG Idea: Pole-Jacking, a Cybernetic Gang Initiation

I had this dystopian dream of a cyberetic gang initiation. The rite of passage was called "Pole-Jacking" and it involved:

1) special drugs that made the person lose all control of their bodily functions a few seconds after injection, but the user would remain entirely conscious,

2) an implant that when triggered via a small lever on the pole that destroyed the part of the brain that governs restraint,

3) jumping off a tall building before doing the stuff in #1, and #2, and then

4) actually surviving the fall that felt like eternity due to the drugs and brain damage.

It was a weird stressful dream, and I remember it ending as I jumped on the pogo-stick like pole off a building, hit the trigger which fried a part of my brain, and then injected myself with this booster-shooter thing (think Star Trek). It felt like it lasted FOREVER, a strange mix of the fear of death, a high, and then blending into a fear of nothing and wishing for the ground to finally meet me.

Yeah, it was intense dream, hehe.

Maybe you can use that out there.

Edit: I was thinking that to start some cyberpunk session one of these guys strapped to a strange pole could crash land into a car right in front of the players.  hehe.

2D6 Death & Dismemberment Table of DOOM

Video with the same information can be found here:

Roll 2D6 when a character "dies" and check the chart below.

2. Horrific Demise!  You are decapitated, torn into pieces, disemboweled, or find some other horrible way to die a painful death.  The rest of the party members need to make a Saving Throw vs. Paralyze or be frozen in place for 1D4 rounds.

3. Lifeless "Corpse."  You are actually alive but your friends don't know this.  Your body is functioning at such a slow rate that they think you are dead.  You will recover 1 Hit Point per day until you reach 1 Hit Point and then you will wake up.  You may have been left for dead, buried, burned, or left for the crows by then though.

4. He Will Be Missed.  You feel hands clutching you, but then you see your soul being dragged downwards and your body is resting above you.  Somehow you are able to see through the layers of dirt and rocks as you descend to your eternal fate.

5. Someone Is Watching Over You.  Something doesn't want you to die yet for some cosmological reason.  Roll a D2.  If you roll a 1 it is a benign or benevolent being, if it is a 2 it is one of The Outer Powers...  You wake up at 1 Hit Point... but you can't shake the feeling that "you aren't alone anymore."

6. He Was a Bastard Anyway.  In your last moments you are confronted by the thoughts and feelings of everyone that ever hated or disliked you.  This flashing cacophony of horrible images and emotions assaults you until everything fades to black.

7. SNAP! Broken Bone(s). You break 1D4 bones of the GM's choosing.

8. Broken Useless Thing.  You are horribly disfigured and broken.  You die after 1D4 horribly painful rounds of agony.  You can barely get out 1 sentence each round that will be your last words.

9. Half the Man You Used To Be.  You have been torn, or sliced, or ripped in half.  Your guts spill out all over the ground around you and your top half falls into this serpentine-like mess.  You gag on your own blood and pass to the hereafter.

10. That's Gotta Hurt!  One of your limbs or appendages is cut off, ripped off, or smashed to the point of it no longer functioning at all.  Roll 1D10. 1 = Left foot, 2 = Right foot, 3 = Left leg, 4 = Right Leg, 5 = Left hand, 6 = Right hand, 7 = Left arm, 8 = Right arm, 9 & 10 = Decapitation & Death.

11. At the Gates of Death.  You somehow manage to cling to life by the skin of your teeth.  You lie here unconscious at the mercy of the friends or foes that are around you.  Somehow you are able to see this scene from above you as if you were floating, even though your eyes are closed.

12. Now I'm Fucking Mad!  You have a near death experience, and get a burst of adrenaline.  You heal up XD6 Hit Points were X is the level of your character.  For example if you are a 4th level character you would heal up 4D6 Hit Points.  At the end of the combat you return to zero Hit Points and fall into unconsciousness.
