Star Trek Theme/Setting Discussion

    Hell, you could use the Flashback mechanic as Technobabble mechanic. All it does is set up the use of Assets (things around you that help your roll), so...

    Yeah thatwould work and give the players some fun in coming up with the technobabble, which with the group I normally table top with would quickly become the highlights of the sessions.

    For MUSH suitability, regular cortex should work fine, though I would avoid the cortex + flavors that deal a lot with specific relationships mechanically, for example Smallville and Firefly, (Serenity uses cortex not plus) since characters on Mushes are a lot less connected to each other than the chars in a tabletop.

  • Smallville is the only one that really uses the relationship maps.
    Serenity uses some stress tracks/knockout mechanics that are different, like a combo between Cortex Classic and Cortex Plus.
    Cortex Classic is a more standard game, where you don't have the option to make Assets, Distinctions and such things in the narrative manner. It's a 'make pools and total numbers' and success is more like Unisystem, a bit.

    Hence why I suggested Leverage.
