Sorry about the radio silence for the last few days, MAGE was this past weekend and it consumed quite a bit of my time which coupled with the fact that the school holidays have arrived means that I have been slack. Come on, its not like you aren’t used to it.
I will write up a longer MAGE report at another date (Saturday is just a blank, literally) but on the Sunday I thought that I would use the opportunity to rope a few more people into playing 7TV.
Which proved to be a success beyond anything I could have hoped as I’ve got 4 or 5 new players into the game and generated a few extra signups for the forthcoming 7TVDay3.
All good things.
But of course its 7TV so you need to come up with a cast and a show for that cast to be involved in – I was really pushing the whole make up your own story aspect during the demos as thats the thing that really appeals to me about the game and I have to say that the lovely folks have taken that to heart. So without further ado here are a few of the cast ideas that have been knocked around since the weekend.
Southern U.S. sponsors wanted a cowboy in space soap which supported the Confederate ideals. They came up with Gettysborough. It didn’t get any traction in the UK under 7TV so they cancelled before the end of the first season. It now has a cult following.
Star – Martin Reynolds – Tough Detective 10

“Freedom Ridge” was a later spin off from the hugely popular “The Lawman” (which was cancelled mid-run after a scandal hit involving its star). Both were westerns – Freedom Ridge tried to cash in on the rising feminist movement by having female stars in traditionally male roles in the early 70s but eventually all the protests from groups on all sides led to that too being cancelled. An idea before it’s time sadly….. maybe another re-boot is due?
I need to refine my narrative but basically my story so far is a t.v. station wanted to make a drama about the Druids of Morne, who were a real life sect that lived on a remote island but the worship of the Druids died out years ago. The station hired a local historian who lived on Morne as a creative consultant without realising she was an ancient and powerful druid. Within a few months she had brainwashed and converted many of the actors and crew to become part of her cult. Plus raised a few demons……
I love the creativity that has gone into these, even just in the couple of days since being introduced to the game. I also love the fact that loads of my friends are going to be playing my favourite game which means I don’t just have to play Matt 🙂
As for me my next cast is coming along nicely
Lets face it, I’m a complete geek, wargaming, xbox games and playing with lasers. I tried 3D printing but it made my head hurt. Flighty in the extreme, hobby projects last a couple of days before moving onto the next one
