No thank you. That game sounds incredibly boring and I'm tired of being reality tv show contestants. There are better themes out there, be creative

Yes, please! That game sounds like a lot of fun, and I haven't had much of a chance to be a reality TV show contestant. This is one of many really good ideas out there, so thanks for your creativity!

I agree with Monty! This game sounds like a tremendous joy, and I miss out on all the opportunities to roleplay a Survivor castaway. This is a great concept; you're so fresh and innovative!

there are probs better seasons to roleplay if we're doing real survivor seasons imo. something like miallilens v gen x or gabon or a season like those might lend themselves better to a forum concept.

GoT has a huge following and is mainstream enough that even people who don't watch it know about it

Black Sails has literally tens of viewers

I know a theme that has a huge following and that a lot of people on here know about.

Why not run a game based on Reality TV? Now that's a million dollar idea.

Like part of running diverse themes is to introduce people to cool shit.

My general take is that we have more need for mods than players. If a theme interests a mod and the game gets made because of that interest, then great. We have the players to fill most games. Most players don't care about theming nearly as much as mods do.

Also for what it's worth, I think pirate based challenges and mechanics might work well.

You could definitely do it, and people would play, but I find that the more obtuse and niche the theme, the more people bounce off of it.

Like everyone knows what a Pokemon is; people who are playing online Survivor probably know the castaways. Civilization worked because it was all historical figures. Then you get to stuff like LoL, DBZ, and Nexus, which were kind of question marks to me and a bunch of other people but the cast was colorful and diverse enough to make it work. Game of Thrones had a surge of popularity going for it, and it's cast is still fairly diverse appearance wise. If Black Sails truly is a better Game of Thrones, I guess it can also rely on this, but whereas most anyone can name drop Khaleesi or Jon Snow and then work down to your Sansas, Aryas, and Cerseis, I don't know how many people could name a main character from Black Sails?
