Just checking interest for AMC Into the Badlands RP ( http://www.amc.com/shows/into-the-badlands )

Keep in mind, lore is sketchy, official rules or supplements do not exist, on going episode can turn what we know on its head... if you are interested you should be expecting as much a collaborative fan fiction effort (fleshing out settings, discussing fan theories, refining rules) as actual game.

Honestly I probably won't know till I talk to the players, see what they want and expect from the game.

It needs to be something that works well for cinematic martial arts, with bonus for post-apocalypse, sci-fi and survival.

If the players mostly look for narrative, storytelling experience - most likely WuShu Reloaded.

If they expect something more crunchy - perhaps GURPs Lite Martial Arts rules

If players have rulebooks or don't mind learning from fragments of rules I can post - HKAT or QIN possibly

And there will have to be homebrew modifications, for example to account for The Gift (thinking Gift can be version of Chi powers rules, were characters without the Gift will have strict chi powers mostly unavailable)

There are other possibilities (including freeform although that's by far not the 1st choice), and I am open to suggestions

If you wouldn't mind a newbie to Feng Shui, I very much like Into the Badlands, and the idea of a game based on that sounds great!

I never used Feng Shui rules myself, don't think I even have the book (although need to check some boxes in the garage)... apparently I have "Golden Comeback" and "Iron and Silk" supplements.

If you don't mind GM with no experience with rules... then probably Feng Shui it is.

If you do settle on Feng Shui, I can lend a hand with rules.

Ditto. FS is pretty easy to pick up upon. Just make sure you check peoples' shticks, so you're not dry-gulched by 'em.

I'll set the game up today/tomorrow but it will be at least a week before anything actually starts.  Need time to go over the rules, prepare some set pieces and so on.

I'll open few topics to public discussion though to see what players expect and want, discuss/agree on lore elements and so on.

Count me in.

Any thought about Barons, factions and affiliations? Feng Shui offers a pretty decent model for the factions that can be set in motion against each other and the characters can be those few, free Chi Warriors fighting for freedom.

Thoughts I have plenty, details however will depend on a number of factors, not the least which era will the game be set in.
