"Dynasty" goes sci-fi -- and you can play, too!

Alexis ... on Mars! If that sounds scary, or perhaps a bit intriguing, you're going to want to learn more about an Internet role-playing game based on our beloved "Dynasty."

The game, explained at, sets the Carrington clan more than a century into the future, in 2111, where "Hydrogen is the new energy source. Humanity has colonized the oceans and is moving beyond Earth into space. Orbital space stations and colonies exist, and colonies exist on the moon, Mars, on the moons of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, and on Alpha Centauri." And Blake and Sammy Jo are there, too!

Kinda like "Dynasty in Space!" Or maybe "Dynasty" as it would air on the Sci-Fi Channel. We can dig it.

Many roles are listed, including some Mancinis and Woodwards (skewing a little "Melrose," perhaps?). The info was posted a year ago, so the status of the game is not clear (anyone?). There's another game from the same sources but set in 2011, also found at And yet another with the same contact info at

"Dynasty" Internet games are not a new concept; this one at Yahoo was started back in 1999.

Event organizer Chad Fullerton has sent BRBTV a revised schedule of events for his Hazzard in the Hills event next month. Check the original post for a look at this full day of "Dukes" fun!
