Sounds very interesting. I'd like to play this when it's finished.
I think me and a friend were trying to work on a Tron tabletop RPG game. Didn't really get too far, unfortunately.
I haven't really followed this too much, so I don't know if these ideas have been mentioned or implemented or whatever, but here's some ideas:
-Some form of arena disc battles, or just a general disc battle system for random encounters with armed enemies.
-Lightcycle battles. If you keep it in four directions or as a hexagonal grid, it might be possible. Could be turn-based where all players decide which direction they're going to go, and then execute that turn at the same time (like the PC games Frozen Synapse and Flotilla).
-Use vehicles to "fast-travel"

Generally, the way tabletop RPG games (like Dungeons and Dragons and Gamma World) work is that the game-makers will provide a book with instructions on how the game works and how certain situations are handled. One player is chosen to be the "Game Master" or "Dungeon Master". This player determines the actual story, what enemies players encounter, and so on. Some tabletop RPG games have additional books that provide storylines, in case the Game Master can't think of a story.
As far as boards go, sometimes they require a board, sometimes they don't. For example, while exploring a dungeon in Dungeons and Dragons, you would likely use a board with the dungeon drawn out on it on a square grid, which players move across. In other cases, the Game Master might say "You are in a field where an evil skeleton is about to shoot you with a crossbow!" Players respond by telling the Game Master what they want to do, and then roll dice to determine if it worked. So I could respond with "I attack the skeleton with a magic fireball.", roll a die, and if my roll is high enough, my magic fireball successfully flies towards and hits the evil skeleton. However, if my roll is too low, it might backfire and kill me instead.
Hopefully all that made sense.
