Today’s character concept for the Corporia tabletop role-playing game is the Runner – a courier who specializes in transporting illegal items that the ‘Big Brother’ mega-corps don’t approve of. In my head, it’s a parkour runner with a bit of Faith from Mirror’s Edge, Eliza Dushku‘s Rubi from Wet, and Altaïr from Assassin’s Creed.
Once I’ve finalized the gameplay rules for the Assets (a mix of powers and talents that are either ‘always active’ or ‘active depending on the situation’), this concept will mesh well with the various acrobatic-related Assets. The Assets are a bit of a late innovation, actually. Originally there were only four of them, and they were targeted specifically to the: Hacker, Knight-Errant, Spellcasters, and Everyone Else. That didn’t allow for a lot of variety, though, so I’m changing it up a bit… More on that later.
I hope you enjoy the Runner concept. As always, please feel free to comment about anything, and share the link with your gaming friends.
