Taz’s Idea – Psi*Run with a “chaser”
‘The first thing that popped into my mind was using Psi*Run where our PCs are lab rats that have been experimented on. Due to mad science, they can see one color each that don’t exist; magnetic fields, truth, lust, luck, etc. As the game progresses they go from just seeing their chosen color to being able to manipulate it. I’d also include a crazed German hunter that is chasing them. At some point he has to inject ALL THE DRUGS so that he can be more powerful than the PCs, and he will (of course) scream, “DIE FARBEN!”‘
