(un)Official RPG Development\Idea Thread
 
I made this thread specifically for developing plots, getting signups, checking interest, blah blah blah. I just reaaaally want to roleplay, haven't done it in literal ages. I think my last one (that I actually stuck with) was broken worlds, and I had to give GMing power to doombringer (still many thanks doom ^^). So... to sum it up, I (and I'm sure a lot of other people) really want to roleplay, This is for idea's and whatnot.



I guess I'll see if anyones interested in an idea I have...

Mech RPG
Alright, basically there are... organizations... that have different views. Basically, they argue. And both of the organizations want all the power. (more story if people play, this is just a summary... a very, very, very plain one.) So, what we do, is design our mech, (pictures welcome) but please, be original. Like you could use a picture of an evangelion, but do not copy that mech from helmet-plate to toe-plate. You choose a specialty, whether it be speed, combat, defense, offense, but design your mech with an idea in mind, so that it will serve a purpose. You're pilot (besides battles) will be just about 90% of the rpg, so... create a unique character.

Thats all for now... and I'm sorry if that ran together, I'm really excited.

My idea is called Starcraft Politics. It ranges back to the old BF.

Politics is basically like this:


You pick a race, alignment, and such. Then, every post is sort of like an announcement.

Such as this:

(Can be presented in any way, whether it be to a Protoss Council, or like a Newspaper)
This is narrowed immensely.


1600 This Morning

Zerg forces encroach on the western banks of the UED capital of Kassadland. Though our forces were caught by surprise, the might of the UED prevails. Admiral JimmyJones has announced that revenge will be swift and has begun arranging forces. He made this announcement earlier today:

"Zerg blow."

Strong words. Until next time, UED News Network.

Nuclear Missile Silos
29%

(((Now that was dumbed down a ton. Make it serious as possible. Desbribe battles and such. Also, how the upgrades work is like such: You say you're upgrading something (Like the Nukes) and slowly progress it through time. Don't make it like


Post 1
Travel from Earth to Tarsonis
0%

Post 2
Travel from Earth to Tarsonis
99%

Make it realistic. Tak at least 5 posts or so. The more impact it will make, the longer it should take.

So that's about it. This may sound stupid, but I promise, it's a hell of a lot of fun. Basically, I don't know where we start, but on the old BF, we started about 100 years after BW and basically said Kerrigan disappeared so we can make our own SC Universe. Be anyone you want, pick a planet, and we can get started.

Anyone interested?

hellz yea ^^

I may/might be interested in that idea, Kassad.

UED Special Ops 06-30-2006 01:22 AM

Hmm, interesting. I may also consider joining if you make the RP Kassad, as a UED Commander of course. :)

Kassad 06-30-2006 11:36 AM

One thing about it. One problem we came across before was that we never made an enemy. It was like The Dominion, Dark Templar, and Artanis' Force. Before we even get started, could you guys send me who you'd like to be and a possible alignment so I can set things up accordingly?

Here's a rough draft of what I've made for the Second World War RP.



Medal of Honor: Battle of Normandy RP (Rough Draft)

Location & Time: Omaha Beach, Normandy (France) June 6th 1944

Battle of Normandy Chapters:
1. Omaha Beach
2. (To be added)

Major Participating Sides:
Allies:
- United States
- United Kingdom
- Canada

Axis:
- Nazi Germany

Briefing & Background: The Second World War (World War II, 1939-1945) constantly was sparked by conflicts between the Allied Powers led by Britain, Soviet Union (Not until 1941) and United States who fought the Axis Powers, led by Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy and Imperial Japan. The war was caused by the expansionist and racist aggression of the Nazi Germany dictator Adolf Hitler and the imperial ambitions of Japan in Asia. The war is the most largest and deadest in history.

Both the Allies and Axis clashed their forces, with mainly the Axis gaining an upperhand. Poland was first to be conquered by the Axis powers, and later followed by Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia which were occupied by the Soviet Union. Soon enough Denmark and Norway fell to the Germans, causing the Allied Forces to panic as Europe was slowly being annexed by the Axis.

With Eastern Europe falling apart, Germany invaded France. The French surrendered to Germany, effectively expanding their territories. The United States entered the war a year later, transforming the war into a Global Scale crisis. The Allied Forces, consisting of the United States, United Kingdom and Canada launched an attack on Normandy, France, commonly and popularly known as D-Day (Battle of Normandy). Millions of soldiers, both the large conscript forces and the smaller regular forces sailed across the English Channel for the landing in Normandy. A record was reported that almost 3 million troops were involved crossing the English Channel from England to France.

Battle of Normandy, or codename Operation Overlord will be a deadly conflict between the Allies and Axis. Overnight parachute and glider landings, massive air assaults and naval bombardments, and an early morning amphibious assault on June 6th and the Nazi proving to be well trained and with numerous advantages will prove to be one of the most biggest recongised deadly seaborne invasion in history, ever.

"Fighting amongst the brave allied soldiers, the American forces will secure peace and stability from the oppression Nazi that plauged in Europe and to ensure worldpeace to end all wars. Your enemy are well trained, well equiped, and well defended. This will not be an easy battle. We expect nothing but full victory. Your Finest Hour awaits you, may the best of luck be with you. Good luck." - Supreme Allied Commander, Dwight D. Eisenhower

Question. My plan was to be fighting in a battle, and after the battle was over, be captured by (I was thinking Soviet, if allowed) troops. I would tell them what I know and promise loyalty if they would not send me back to Germany. Is that all right?

Just remember, this is signing up... so make a new thread when it starts.
(you all probably new, I was just reminding)
And... Well, is there any chance of this being stickied?

Kassad 07-01-2006 11:35 AM

Oh yeah! I haven't seen Ranre since the old Starcraft Politics.

As in PM, or just in this thread?

And I'm sure there is plenty of room in the Galaxy for another spacefaring civilization, or even just a few rogue warlords who band together.

Kassad 07-01-2006 03:48 PM

PM would be easier, but It doesn't matter.

Basically, the way we starrted was by staing that Kerrigan disappeared. If you guys want, you could bring her in, or even be her, but until then, it makes it easier to say she disappeared.

Or the rogue warloards or whatever is cool too. I was hoping for at least two good guys and 2 bad. Send me a PM if you're interested and tell me what you want to be.

Meteora 07-01-2006 04:05 PM

I think I meant that its still in progress before I make the final touchings and stuff... But then I'll already have you three registered (Your created characters) when the RP is officially ready. Right now its not.

Well, basically we're going to remake history a little tiny bit. However I doubt that Soviet forces would be in Normandy, when they are fighting the Germans in a frontal war. Besides, it would lead to conflict and that the Soviets are on the Allied Side now (1941). Battle of Normandy took place in June 6 1943.
