Trying to decide on my next campaign...
Well, lately my rpol games are kind of petering out slightly. They have the possibility of picking up again and hopefully will after the holidays, but if they're going to dwindle then I'm going to start thinking of my next project. I've been GMing the same 2 games for 5 and 10 years straight so the idea of doing something new is exciting to say the least. Before I go all nuts though, I'm trying to gauge general interest so I actually create a game people want to play. I have it narrowed down to these possibilities:

1. A home brew version of Borderlands (based on the video games). Several people have expressed interest in this already.

2. A campaign based in Arthurian legend,(you know, King Arthur, Merlin, all that jazz) also half homebrew half d&d

3. A home-brew One Punch Man campaign where you start off as class C and eventually work your way up to class S. You would make your own original characters but you'd get a chance to interact with some of the current, well-loved characters as NPC's.

All of these choices would require some work on my part to get the rules and home brew details going, hence I don't want to put in all that effort until I know general interest, and it wouldn't be ready for a few months. Hence this is all theoretical for the moment, but I tend to put a lot of effort into my settings and I don't want to waste energy if there is no audience. So feel free to respond to this and cast your vote so to speak and I'll be able to figure out what fits best from that. Thanks!

I would give #1 and #3 a look, depending mostly on how the homebrew systems turned out. The settings both sound fun to me.

An order of self-styled Arthurian Knights in the Borderlands whose King can defeat any villain with One Punch...

All three are good ideas, but #2 appeals to me the most, as long as the rules ended up being less complicated than actual D&D...

How important are the genre and system to #2 because I suddenly remember there’s this one Fate Core-based Arthurian legend mecha game...

It still very much has courtly romance/intrigue/adventure and all those parts, just also, you know, mecha. In space.

I am cautiously interested in the Arthurian angle, but with just having gotten engaged I don’t know how much time I’d have to actually play, especially knowing I’m already a slow poster now.

Arthur in space? Hahaha!! That’s awesome!!

And it definitely sounds like it’s mostly a split between one punch and Arthur. I have a lot to think about. Thanks guys!

If the King Arthur type leader is the only one with a mecha, that one definitely count as a one-punch type dynamic...

Camelot Trigger is the name of it, it’s in Fate Worlds: Worlds in Shadow.

If it helps, this is the into to the setting in Worlds of Shadow:

*****
WELCOME TO CAMELOT TRIGGER!
In humanity’s far future, a familiar tale is retold: a man named Arthur is crowned king. Brave knights rally to his standard, and in gigantic suits of armor, they clash with their great enemy in battles across the solar system. And as the epic struggle rages, the king finds his love and loyalty tested by his queen and his best knight…

This is CAMELOT Trigger: the romance and intrigue of the classic Arthurian legend combined with the spectacle and scope of giant robot battles in space—one of the world’s most well-known and beloved stories played out in a setting of sci-fi action and high adventure.
