So, I’ve been playing a lot of the new Red Faction videogame recently, and the idea of a game about a worldwide revolution against an oppressive regime really strikes a spark with me, and I think BE would be a pretty good fit.
But BE as written is about fending off an invading alien force. I want something about throwing off the yoke of your overseers.
Here’s my hacks:
Infection is now Revolution. The phases of Revolution are Organization, Mobilization, and Revolution.
When making the world, the rebels get Disposition based on the standard Vaylen Disposition for the corresponding phases. The authority gets disposition for the standard human disposition.
The primary government is the Authority, whoever the rebels are rebelling against. Pick another faction to be the rebel faction. The players get that dispostion automatically.
No Vaylen in the stories. (And no need to pick Planetary Attitude towards Vaylen. Maybe there should be some sort of other Planetary Attitude instead.) Kerrn and Mukhadi at the players’ option.
Thoughts? Any good things to add here?
