As I suggested HERE
, who would be interested in a Dune role play using a modified version of the Diplomacy board game rules? That way the focus would be on the political intrigue and not dice rolling or some such. Copies of the Diplomacy rules can be found HERE
. The only real difficulty I can find is in creating a star map that everyone could agree to while respecting the Orthodox Dune world.
Also, supposing there is interest in such a thing, what setting would be best for everyone? Would we want everyone to be a Great House with the GM acting as the 'neutral' Emperor or Space Guild? Something more akin to the original Dune board game? I would personally prefer a time before the original Dune novel to allow everyone to create their own House and duke it out without any game changing occurrences such as Paul or Leto the 2nd being around. Alternatively perhaps a setting during the timeline of the last two novels? Or something else perhaps?
