I'll have to disagree. Not all players like crossovers, and creating them alienates people who just want to play Bionicle RPGs,
That is kinda part of the reason we have all these different side RPGs. Aside from allowing more than one person to run their own RPG, it also allows people who don't like one idea go and do something else.
Plus, crossovers more often than not lead to grabbing at and fusing the origins, rather than creating new source material.
When you do a good job it tends to come out noticeably different from either of the starter pieces. A proper fusion of settings is more than just mashing a pair of them together.
Something for anybody trying to make a crossover to remember.
We've seen wars in Bionicle. What are you doing that's new?
Welp, might as well never have another RPG with a war in it.
There's a difference between "little different" and "I have to go back eleven pages to find something that isn't either a crossover or a reimagning of a project from another forum as an RPG".
That much talk about it means that there is a fair amount of interest in a crossover RPG, even if it is a cautious interest.
The inherent problem with crossovers is something Lev touched on; they don't do anything new. The plots don't benefit from it,
I'm not sure how much crossovers you have read but the fact that for a large number of them, those plots would have never happened without the universes coming together. I'm pretty sure that falls under "new."
because for many of these ideas I would have serious concerns about their ability to survive.
This is a major part of the reason we have the planning topic. The community can take a look at any new ideas coming along and see if they like it. If not, the idea dies here, like what has happened to several suggestions over the past couple of pages.
I'm not saying that anything that gets to the Judges is guaranteed to live for a while, but it is going to have some level of support behind it.
