#RPGaDay 2017 - Day 30

As found on: http://autocratik.blogspot.com/2017/07/rpgaday-2017-announcing-rpgaday-again.html

August 30th) What is an RPG genre-mashup you would most like to see?

There's a lot of mashups out there so I feel the need to come up with something new, unique, and probably a little wacky. How about a traditional High Fantasy game combined with Superheroes. In this case a setting where Super Powers and Magic are all hereditary. The characters could either be normal folk trying to survive the wars of power between the High Houses, or the scions of those houses gifted with power, but perhaps not with the morals to use them well. Imagine Game of Thrones but with the X-men playing the major roles. What happens when a whore's son develops Powers which can only come from the blood of the High Houses?

A second idea, one that I've had for a while but never figured out how to make it work is Giant Mecha + High Fantasy + King Arthur. I called it "Grand Steel Knights". The idea being that Arthur's knights each have a magical giant mecha that they use to defend the realm. Kinda like Pacific Rim but in a fantasy setting.

I dunno, maybe I'm nuts.
