Guten Tag and Vindaloo everyone! Its been awhile, so I hope you like one of my latest concoctions from my inverted mind *chuckles*

What with the new movie Peter Jackson is directing, and me being giant fan of the original Kong, Ive really wanted to rp in M.C. Cooper's(the guy who created Kong) world of Skull Island, there are a couple of idea's Ive been throwing around for interesting threads in the world of Kong, this is one of my favorites, so here it goes...

This thread would take place before the actual origanl movie, so basically shortly after WWII, I wanted to do a thread on either a naval fleet or an air squadron, crashing on Skull Island in a horrible crash. As the cast of characters begin to explore the Island, they would obviously meet up with many of the island's ancient inhabitant's(i.e. dinosaurs, giant bugs, and Kong himself, as well the native's) It would be a thread about survival, I really wanted to add a sabotage element in., like if thier was a bomb on the ship or something, and have a lot of cool ulterior motives, like a person who has been to Skull Island before or somthing like that. These are just a few random things, and I havent exactly worked out everything yet. Such as would someone rp as Kong himself? or where the weapons of the time, you know, ship designs. I want some rp'ers who have already been around the block, sorry no newbs please. If anyone likes the film as much as I do, I am also willing to coloborate, just post here to tell me if anyone of ya would be interested!:D

cheers for now,
Orion

Well, I'd be interested. A good survival story is something usually lacking around places like this. Though I'm new to the site, I've been RPing for ages so I think I can handle it. Be glad to find out a little something about weapons and vehicles too, if you'd like.

It sounds pretty cool Orion! then again I'd like to see a Sea Devil 2 or something as well. I'd think about joining.

Thanks for the trust. Trust is good. *shifts eyes*

Anyway, things have been a little hectic around here, so I'll get some things to you tomorrow or Saturday.

Maybe I will make a Sea Devil 2, I dunno how it would work though Libra, the thread only lasted four pages before it kinda fizzled out, still, I'll look into it:D.

Well I'll say that I'll join if its the air force. I haven't been RPing online very long but on a table top I have been playing for years.

Well I'll say that I'll join if its the air force

Im might be seriously thinking of going in that direction, becasue I realy want to feel a sense of, "Okay Im here and probably fucked so I better make the best of it" What if all of us where an air force squadron that perhaps was shot out of the sky? We seem to have four people includng myself, so if I can fine tune the details, are any of you up for it?

Yeah that sounds great, we crash into the see and have to swim to the island to live, no time to grab anything from the plane.

Ok, I dont think I know much of Skull Island and its positioning and such on the globe but I think the Air Force would be a bad choice. Personally I would choose to go with Air Craft Carriers and the Navy. The Air Force at that time mainly did bombing missions and scouting and went off of set routes which I think would have to be a major screw up to get the amount of people youd want for this RP. However, going with a Aircraft carrier that got seperated in a storm would be more plausible...in my thinking. Also that would enable you too to use u-boats or submarines which could have gotten thrown off course and had to take refuge upon that island. Just my thoughts, do what you will though. But its a way to include both axis and allied factions.



I am interested and have done freeform RP for at least five (5) years now. I have seen King Kong movies in the past but dont remember much except for natives, jungles, and a topless sacrifice.

Welcome aboard!, yeah, I kinda regret saying no newbs, just got tired of characters that were to Uber powerfull for thier own good. I rather like the idea of a U boat and an American Sub, what if we have some axis and allied characters crash land on skull island during a hurrcane or somthing, then they unite to try and survive, like one sub has what another needs(i.e. communications equipment to send out a distress single) Unbeliever sent me some cool links on the weapons, ranks, and other stuff for that time period, so we can try and be as accurate as we can. So what do you guys think? If youre okay with this general gist, Im gonna concoct a more concrete story, then I let all of us decide on alliances, rank, and what not.

Sweet, I am in and thanks fro the welcome. The thing which gets me about newbs isnt their ubber characters but how they overlook certain details. LOL Ive had some react to an 18 ft long snake as if it were a garter belt. I like your idea to get the people to work together, I opt to be a lead enlisted.

I'm loving the idea. Especially since I was thinking of being german anyway. I'll see what I can find about submarines and such, if everyone likes the idea.

I just saw this today and it sounds interesting. Did it ever get started? I looked in the General RP area, but didn't see a thread for it.

Nope. Never got off the ground, though I still like the idea.

This looks cool, I know I don't have alot of points or anything, but I did a few threads on the rpgc before I had to move, and net was down and a million other issues. I don't know if anyone read any of the threads I was in before. If this does get off the ground though, and you need another axis member, Ich bin deiner mann! (yeah my german sucks, but hey, better than nothing!) If you guys end up needing me, maybe I'll be a code-breaker or translator for intercepted messages, that way I can speak english for a reason *grin*.

Hey everyone, ts been awhile! Listen, I want to apologize for not getting this thread off the ground, but I just couldnt think of a good opener and it sorta slipped away....anyway, I dont want to rp in this anymore, but If you guys are interested, by all means take it and have fun, Unbeliever, I think you wouls be a perfect threadmaster, especially after eading your research(damn!)

cheers for now

Well, I'm interested in getting it up and running, though I'm not entirely sure I'll be able to. I'd like to see who is interested in getting it going first off. As far as I know there's me, Dangrel, and Dem. If a couple more people show some interest, then I'd be glad to give it a shot.

Oh, yeah. Balthazar, too. Is Dangrel still interested? If so, then I'd like one or two more people.
