Alweer een nieuwe RPG: CGO heeft een preview van Cavedog's Elysium.
pisode Memento Mori: Scully shows Mulder an MRI scan indicating a cancerous mass has been detected on the wall between her sinus and cerebrum. The tumor is inoperable and if it grows, the chance for survival is slim. Building a series of games, each of which contains this kind of X-Files micro-thread, is Cavedog Entertainment's plan for their upcoming role-playing game (RPG) Elysium. John Cutter, creator of Betrayal at Krondor, is undertaking what will probably be the first truly episodic RPG. Sure, we have had stories with sequels, but nothing quite as Green-Mile-esque or, for that matter, Dickens-y as we're going to see here. Each episode will essentially be an eight to ten hour game, with 41 episodes planned. "We've really been using The X-Files as our model," says Cutter. "Each one is definitely a stand-alone thing, and there will be a nice conclusion at the end each time. But there are a lot of little threads that will pull through most of the episodes." You might, for instance, meet a certain group of characters in one episode and wonder what they heck they're doing there. They may be re-introduced as key elements of a later episode
