I am bored with fantasy RPGs.
I know, I know. I get this way about once a year or so, but seriously, I am tired of the same old tropes and want something new. Something unique, something strange, something different.....
Numenera sounds like just the thing. 😁
Heard of it but never really looked into it, isn't it just fantasy as well?
I think we all get bored from time to time. Since you've produced so much stuff through the years, maybe you can reinterpret your oldest stuff through a new lens? "Yes this but not magical, only mechanical", "Yes dragons and pegasi but as Ford F1 and Pointiac Trans Am" and so on.
I feel you, I'm not bored of rpgs but fantasy can get boring. The isle of dread game is a bit weird and less fantasy,but still fantasy. I'm going to reread mutant future this weekend. Although post apoc can get boring as well lol.
At some point I'd like to do a he-man game. Maybe a mix of lab Lord and mutant future. I dunno. Not thundarr, and probably not barbarians of the ruined earth. Still it's a similar troupe. That would be fun to draw up on a hex map!
There are a bunch of small press Thundarr type games out there. Here is one example:https://hodagrpg.itch.io/kingdomites
Are you bored with the “fantasy” or “rpg” components of that statement? I’ve been getting over a hump with the latter by running a Middle Earth campaign... diceless! I know I’m a heathen but Pace by Fred Hicks provided a great start and my players have been enjoying it so far. https://www.evilhat.com/pace/
Sounds like you have Electric Bastionland Syndrome.
