Anyone interested in an alternate reality rp. I need it as a sub plot to an interdimensional rp I'm starting later on.

Could you elaborate on this? What kind of an alternate reality? What would be different? Why don't you just start the internimensional rp and use this alternate reality rp as the beginning of it, leading eventually into your next one? That way, the same players will still be involved in it (hopefully).

The reason why I sperated this from the main plot thread is becuase this is in itself a totally sperate storyline that just interlocks with the other one. It may not be so different with other alternate reality threads out there but the idea is this. The cold war happened, the world takes a semi fuedalistic society, and the knights are gangs called Klanz with hip-hop inspired backgrounds and Tekken like fights with lots of action and things that make movies like matrix fun to watch.

I read that description... and my eyes simply started to bleed. Hip-Hop Knights? Blasphemy. Hideous! You should be shot for that.

*shudders*

Now if you would have made those clans like the robber-barons of old, with metal music as background, then perhaps Damien and I might have been interested, but hip -hop? I believe or resident tongue-lash is correct, they ought to shoot you. Or have you quartered, burned, etc.

Good point, some awesome metal or rock would be much more appealing than hip hop. I get to join the Godsmack clan! (not sure what godsmack is classified as, but damnit I don't care!)

oops had to edit a few typos, I've seen Damien's response to bad spelling and grammar... I don't wish to be a target of his wrath, I've seen it and don't like it. :P Although it is funny sometimes.

See... wrathful attacks DO make people better posters.

Godsmack? Oh no.. no no, my friend.

EXODUS
AMON AMARTH

Shit.. I'd sign up to be a Knight of Manowar!

better posters and well entertained bystanders. Although I already tried my best to post as well as I possibly could. I don't wanna post something that I wouldn't wanna read. If I read it and I cringe, I change it. If people read it and tell me that they are cringing.. I might change it. If people read it and tell me I'm stupid, then I post again in just the same way, just to see some sparks fly. Then edit it all later when no one cares anymore

Note the part that I've hi-lighted (in bold) That and I haven't heard much of the bands on your list. I don't have money to buy CDs, it all goes to surviving college. *sigh* If only I didn't have to eat! Well I suppose I technically don't have to, but I feel alot better when I do eat.

I had to get rid of all those smiley faces... too many

Good form.

Bad form. Besides, that's called "baiting." It's a bad idea on most forums, and can get you into trouble.

I figured you hadn't heard of them. Which is why I listed them. And yes, I saw that you noticed that you don't care if Godsmack is metal or not.

Manowar has some really awesome lyrics though.. it's mostly about swords and armour and great armies and stuff. Check out DarkLyrics.com - then go to M.. then Manowar... good stuff.

Go read some of their lyrics.. see if you like it. If you do.. I'd strongly recommend the "Kings of Metal" album.

Opps, sorry. You guys hate ghetto music? Don't worry, as I forgot to mention earlier there is a more wider environment than that, all depends upon your location or taste, just up to you to imagine. I just metioned hip-hop first cuz I was inspired at first by a Jamurai Flash Cartoon, heh. Anyway the worsl like I said is a lot more versatile than that, I personally added Neo-Nazis as a dominant group in some states, Irish Mob groups(The Iriah Rock), Italian Mob groups, Harley's Angels groups, Illuminatus(Freemasons) groups, and finally, Gangsta Gangs(Hip-Hop).

I like hip-hop because of rap, I don't like it because of the posers with a dominant white audience. Yeah that's right, until Em came along I never got over the Vanilla Ice stigma, that guy sucked ass. DMX rules, not so sure on Jay-Z but he did something with Linkin Park which is very cool, their collision course album of only FIVE SONGS!!!!!! I mean what's wrong with hip-hop other than the occasionall profanities. Actually I liked a bit of the old school though cuz most of the rappers out there rap about nothing more than sex, violence, and how tough they are cuz they shot somebody, they used to rap about something worse something, now everything's about the money and shit the revolution is dead. I mean Em was a mama's boy yet he lashed out at his own mother, how fake is that. Too bad I actually like his tunes.

As for the rock too bad I pretty much listen to anything I like and wasn't able to listen to a lot of the good old ones. I heard Lead Zeppelin, ACDC, Frank Zappa, and Twisted Sister was nice, too bad I discovered rock too late in highschool though. But Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, and the rollingstones did get a lot a headbangs from me. I know how to play Ener the Sandman on my giutar and am a constant fan of Metallica. System of the Down, Queens of the Stone Age, P.O.D., Simple Plan, Bowling for Soup, Good Charlotte, Interpol, Kid Rock, and Linkin Park and others have always been hangin out in my radio. I listen to a local rock station 24/7, go figure.

I'm whining aren't I, heck, don't really give a damn.

Damn, I am definetely going to have to buy some manowar cd's. Also, do they have alot of purely instrumental songs? I saw Sting of the Bumblebee and I always love to find purely instrumental rock/metal songs. There is one on the radio, it's not purely instrumental, but about 1/2 or 2/3 of it don't have lyrics, I love it.

Damien
05/16/2005 1:37 AM

They have some.. but they're few and far between.


Achilles, Agony, and Ecstasy (In Eight Parts) is a -very- long song. You can't tell by looking at the lyrics.. but the lyrics are actually few compared to the length of the song. It's an -awesome- song too.

But anyway.. yeah, they have instrumentals.. but not many of them.

William's Tale
Master of Revenge (mostly)
Achiles, Agony, and Ecstasy (mostly)
Valhalla
The March


Those are the only instrumental or mostly instrumental songs that I can think of. I -believe- that's all of them.


If you'd like to discuss MANOWAR anymore though.. I suggest starting a topic in the Music forums, rather than stealing this thread.

Cool, so anybody here actually interested. I should let you know though that my campaign starts for you guys to be starting out aight. That means level one and work your way up. I can't allow multiple you to choose your Klan though cuz that would be a pretty staggering burden for me so you're all gonna have to stick out with joining the head character's crew, 'stood. Maybe in the future I'll allow Klan choosing but that doesn't really afect you much except maybe the loyalty and follow orders bit. Still working on the sytem for all the threads I'm gonna start, just wait for it a bit.

Damien

Must you talk like you're fresh off the street and forgot everything you ever learned in English class?

"stood" and "aight" are not words. They're primitive grunts.

Hey Damien, how about having a Satriani clan? I know he's not metal, but it'd still be cool!

Damien
05/16/2005 9:41 AM

He is cool.. but if we let just anybody in - then pretty soon we'll end up with a clan for every musician ever known.

I mean.. who wouldn't want to be in a George Thorogood clan, or an INXS clan.

I think i'll be taking the overseas influence then, Rammstein all the way. :p

There, that's for being a bad boy. Now, Damien, no, I wouldn't want to join a INXS clan. Not one of my favorites, so I tend to stay away from them.

Damien

This is just so wierd. SAtriani is cool though, too bad I have yet to follow his solos and ad libs. Metallica is the only thing I know how to play, too bad.

As for the Klans lemme give you a simple overview.

There are several Klans under one Corporation. The corporation is a faction that has control over an entire state area of territory or even more.
E.G.
Uber Reich, Neo-Nazi corporation. they control Mississippi. The Klans under them have designated territories within Mississippi, like for e.g., White America, Aryan Alliance, Hells Angels, and etc.

The Politburo, Russion mob. They control a state.

The House Italia, Italian mob.

St. Patrick's Angels, irish mob.

And Etc.


Small groups first start out as crew and then become Klans if they are patroned by a Corporation. Go figure, "AIGHT" this is to annoy Damien.
