Default Dune ... GF9 Dune...

Gail Force Nine (notable to me for their Firefly boardgame) has secured a license for Dune from Herbert Properties LLC. It's slated to have the bulk of the properties co-release with the 2020 Dune film (which is half the first novel).

buried in the press release is the following:

Cthulhu, and Tales from the Loop.

I've a few trepidations over the involvement of Modiphius - oh, it's going to be great looking, and it's going to have all kinds of useful details - but I'm worried that there will not be crunchy enough mechanics.

slightly off-topic rant about Star Trek Adventures below[spoiler]
To be fair - with Star Trek Adventures, it didn't get in the way of good Trek RP. But it didn't provide mechanical support for it, nor strongly encourage it mechanically. As in, if the group didn't stick to Trek-like actions, the results weren't trek-like. This is quite different from some of the games I've enjoyed.

STA is pretty loose and very narrativist, but I like my narrativist games to have genre enforcement or support in the mechanics, so that even the unread can wind up with something close to the feel. STA doesn't do that.
