Talking a tabletop RPG as opposed to a video game.

Would you participate in a game in this setting?

If it involved rolling dice, I would play.
Not sure what kind of games you would play out, though.
- hide from the Necromongers as they roam the streets
- try to traverse the city to reach a loved one
- try to traverse the city to reach a communication facility
- try to sabotage a Necromonger ship
- try to steal a ship to leave the planet
- maybe play out the mercenary angle

I'd play.

Seems to me like a pulp/Traveller type game/setting, with some definite "space opera" type liberties taken, e.g. Riddick and perhaps other central characters can never die, but can get into some very difficult situations.

Could be interesting. I think a theme of figuring out how to stop and eliminate (or cure) the Necromungas would make a high-level game.

The plot from "Dark Fury" is also a good setting (escaping from a ship full of mercenaries.) Doesn't have to be all Necromongers… ;-)

We play a Pitch Black wargame scenario every now and then. The key is we have a couple of tables that we roll on for initial conditions.

Looking for a John's mini from pitch black , any good suggestions? I can't seem to find anything good. Thanks
