Besides a class I'm working on, this is the only other thing I've been tossing around in the idea bucket bin. The way Issac has mechanical made this game screams to me space travel and exploration. I do not know if this has been mentioned in another thread before, but if it has I don't want to steal your thunder. I'm kicking around ideas using exploration part of this game for discovering new planets, or maybe a boss' secret base of operations. And the 'party' could be a crew of mercenaries/merchants/explorers/pirates etc etc just depending. But not only is there on classes to unlock and missions on foot to do, but add in the idea of space combat with ships. You dont need to change much, but maybe one party member has a small fighter ship (that has its own unique deck) and the rest of the crew "mans" the main ship with tier own decks. Anyways, only have a few ideas with nothing concrete but I think Gloomhavens system is a perfect fit for this kind of theme.
I think the community should take this idea and run with it.

I'll work on securing the rights to the Mass Effect mythos.



But yeah, the Gloomhaven game engine can be reskinned for pretty much any mythos, sci-fi included (and, considering board game mechanics are not subject to copyright law, I expect it'll eventually happen).

Wouldn't be the first time I've seen someone reskin something to mass effect. We did it with the star wars saga edition RPG. SO much fun. I can kinda see how one could do it with gloomhaven.
