In 1984 Fantasy Games Unlimited (FGU) put out Psi World, a role playing game set in a near future Earth where a psionic minority is oppressed by the non-psionic majority and governments. It seemed to have been strongly influenced by the David Cronenberg movie Scanners.
Only a few supplements were published, and then the game was pretty much abandoned by 1986.
Apparently, there’s still some fan interest in this game – a zine called The Psi Underground was published earlier this year. It’s devoted entirely to Psi World.
I’m thinking of running a one-shot of this, but I didn’t much care for the design of the original character sheet. It’s sort of ugly in a boring way, like a lot of 1980’s character sheets were. I’ve made my own 2-page fillable PDF version.
More of my never-ending parade of character sheets can be found here.
