Well, the first version of this game up in my head would have given players the option of making up their own role or personality aspect they'd like to play, but I like the Temperaments because it's a well known, established and I think balanced model. I guess an alternative could be to have two players per bodily fluid if there's enough interest, unless someone has a better idea.

I think the Four Temperaments would work fine? I mean there's apparently a construction with five temperaments too, but I don't think it matters too greatly.

Alrighty then. Counting you and Snacks that makes two interested players. I need at least two more to play and could handle three or even eight, though I doubt we'll get that many. If I get two more I'll get to writing in earnest so we can begin.

So I had a random idea. Essentially, people make up characters (might be fun if they're loosely based on you as people) and you all cooperate together to launch a coup against some random third world shithole, mercenary-style. Then you can all try to run the country while stabbing each other in the back or something.

They'll be "idealised" versions of yourself, kinda thing. So for example, you might be, I dunno, a 49-year-old former member of the 442nd Infantry Battalion who became a journalist/copy-writer/advertising exec and then fell into something that led him to overthrowing a small African nation.

"Sir, It is a well-known fact that young people are generally leftwing. It is also well-known that as people get older, they become more rightwing.
It is also a fact that, as people get older, their brain cells die at a faster and faster rate. I would therefore like to propose that conservatism be classified as a degenerative disease."

Inspired by the catastrophic implosion of the fever-dream Red Planet game, I have a new idea with significantly less ability for shit to get fucked (at least, quite so quickly), but in the same vein.

Coming to you from NOT the Red Planet-verse...

Colony ship to another planet! Players are members of the crew, with some couple of thousand NPC colonists in cryosleep. They didn't necessarily start off that way, but Christ some of those fuckers were mouthy. Earth's probably gone, so what's next?

Seems everyone still wants to play in the "Red Galaxy", so this won't be a thing. Not to mention that no one likes this idea.
