I'm drawing from Blake's 7 as major inspiration for a one-on-one RPG game for my brother. It won't be an established setting other than a mishmash of inspirations and interpretations of science fiction we used to create with our G.I.Joe and Star Wars action figures decades ago. The whole saga revolved around the best spaceship in the galaxy, one we used a toy submarine for a makeshift spaceship- the SHARC. My brother and I made an audio drama telling the story that very much mirrored Star Wars: A New Hope. We even made a comic book adaptation of the story. I plan on using the GURPS system for the first time for the game, something I've wanted to do for a very long time. It seems like a logical system with a lot of similarities to the Chaosium Basic Roleplaying System. Other sources of inspiration are Cowboy Bebop, DUNE, Chronicles of Riddick.
