What do you think of Red Star Games? They're a small group of BIONICLE fans who write content for tabletop games based off BIONICLE. Their most expansive and most complete project at the moment is Doronai Nui, a D20-based role playing game inspired by the Metru Nui saga. They are also working on material for Barranai Nui, a BIONICLE-themed skirmish game based off the 8th edition of Warhammer 40,000, and Heroes of the Stars, a rules-light RPG based off the franchise's second generation. What do you think about these people and their projects, /lego/? Do you or would you play any of their games?
Never heard of it. Thanks for the tip. Where can I buy this game?
>>750 Just look at the link in the subject line.(redstargames.org) The game is free, they're not able to put money by it since they're not officially affiliated with LEGO.
>>749 Seems like an interesting project and an example of what direction the Bionicle community should take. Majority of the Bionicle fanbase seems obsessed with the lore and the finer elements of it, but they're kidding themselves if they think they aren't beating a dead horse at this point. Creative projects like this that take the IP elsewhere (even if not officially) and keeps the community healthy as well as creating a whole new avenue of exploration for artists, builders, or even just story tellers. As for the game itself, I'm not too big on the idea of using actual figures in-game; miniatures would be better adapted for this but I understand why they haven't implemented this. Finding someone to play this with must be a pain because they have to not only be into Bionicle and /tg/ stuff, but also have a decent selection of existing Lego pieces and I can't see there being that many people out there.
