Also I really want an extended sequence of Kynes' mad visions in the desert, arguing with his dead dad about ecology.

That's probably my favourite scene in the books and I want it so bad.

Jodorowsky's Dune also gave us the Metabarons:


It gave Incal which in turn gave us the Metabarons as one of many spinoffs Get your order of events right!

L'Incal rules so loving hard

just don't get the recolored version

But... it was already in color?

(My father, who used to run a comic book store in Montreal before I was born, has the entire original run of Incal, as well as a bunch of other Moebius greats like Major Fatal and Sur l'Étoile)

I'd rather have Jodo as Kynes' father in the desert hallucination sequence.

Is there a good Dune or Dune-like Tabletop RPG?

You picked a great time to ask this question!

There's the classic Avalon Hill board game from the 70s. You used to have to drop $500 on Ebay to get it but now it's back in print and GF9 was even able to license the original artwork too:

An official tabletop RPG was announced for a little over a year ago, it's meant to drop a little before the movie releases:

https://www.modiphius.com/dune.html Their past work is pretty solid and they basically mostly do tabletop RPG books from licensed properties.



There are also various unofficial and (and even a few semi-official copyright hell) ones from years ago you might want to poke around into:

I know a guy who has the Dune boardgame, I'll see if I can get to play it.

I have the Metabarons rpg, but it's the old WEG d6 system.

Dune is literally "MUSLIMS. IN. SPAAACE!!!" would it have killed them to at least try to give things a bit of mid-east flair? Make the Fremen dress like Bedoins. The Sarduakar should be High Tech Jannisaries. Give the nobility colorful Turbans and poo poo. Instead everyone looks like their from the same generic unadorned gray plastic world all Hollywood Sci-Fi for the past 15 years has been. That Atreides armor is terrible.

Freme are Zensunni, they should have some japanese aesthetics as well.

I seriously love Liet Kynes.

Although I do still wish to see Jodo as the insane father vision.

It's a bad movie but I have a soft spot for Dead or Alive because of the dad trying to be supportive of his daugther while beating the crap out of her.

For that kind of stuff you want Jodo with the Imperoratriz and the Perfect Androgyne.

Or maybe you don't because it trnasofrms something normal into something mystical.

Yeah, in the books they're Zensunni, a syncretism of existing religion into something new in the far future.

Maybe WB are thinking long-term with Dune as a series with a cult following they can milk for years instead of a big box office.

I've gained some grudging respect for KJA after learning how he writes his books. He just goes on a walk in the wilderness, dictating whatever passes through his brain. And then he gets paid for it.

I like how the Giger design for Giedi Prime were reused in Prometheus.
