Ok I kind of got this spir of the moment thing. I was thinking Some vampire hunting people (or other beings of myth as well), but not the spiffy vampires like from Anne Rice novels. I mean the mideval view of them. Evil, smelly, ugly flesh eaters. I'm not quite sure where I want to go with it yet.

I guess a over view would be uh...er..A few characters, roughly 8-12 (prefer human charaters) a bit of scifi/tech with the weapons. a bit fantasy with the things we would be after. (limited to like vamps, werewolves, trolls, and evil dragons)

So tell me what you thing and suggest what you will.

Thank you ^^

So we would be the vampire hunters, not seen one of those in a while. So how high tech are we looking, starwars type weapons or Stargate SG1 type weapons?

Libra,

This forum is meant to post ideas about a storyline that you wish to play out. Believe it or not, but it is the thread starter (in this case being you) that is expected to come up with the general idea, background, etc.

Secondly, may I advise using a spellchecker before posting? Non native english speakers may get highly confused otherwise (native speakers would just have to read twice). Not over-capitalised and correct use of reading marks would be preferred.

(bloodsuckers would be correct, otherwise they'd be called cannibals, not vampires) I'm not quite sure where I want to go with it yet. (You'd better know, as you started the thread. See explanation above.)

I know you can do better then this, libra, provided you put your mind to it.

Sorry I sometimes type to fast then dont check afterwards.

Well so far for story line wise, I'm thinking Europe. Well maybe a Europe type setting. Not giving away location, or making it not even on earth.

Ok the story would start off with 2 - 3 characters and then the party would grow from there, but not like crazy big. I think I want it to stay under 15 people to a side. I think I would want the weapons to mainly not be guns. Sure the little one are fine, up to regular shot guns is the limit for fire arms. Other then that, laser swords, katanas, mallets, electric nets, anything else are ok. There will be no flying cars! Horses, Motor cycles if you wish are alright.

Ok back to the story line...damn side tracks. Mountainous regions, forests, and little villages. Some characters might want revenge on the creatures of darkness. Others may want to gain the power to control the darkness; others might just want to stop the darkness before it overwhelms the people.
The final goal will be to destroy the Onyx Magnus. The stone that that the first creature of darkness first sprung from. For if it is destroyed, the darkness will be banished from the world it torments.
The vampires, trolls, Werewolves, dragons, and other creatures have already exterminated what was left of the dieing out elfin race, now their attention is fixated on the human race.
Thats all I got so far...^^

Much better already, Libra. :) Told you that you could do better. didn't I?

In future, do as I had to do in the past, before clicking on 'post reply' read through your post first. You'll be amazed how much you errors you'll prevent that way. ;)

So I take it that this Hunter session would take place in a modern/futuristic time period, basically in our own realm of Earth/ Universe?


Just wanting to make sure that I grasp what you are going for. Of course Id care to take the whole Holy route in hunting down such creatures. You did not seem to make mention of that if 'Faith' has any effect upon them or if its just phyisical means. So far it sounds as if holiness and magic really doesnt exist that such creatures exist by simple law of nature.



If you can clear up those little finer points for me it would be greatly appreciated.

Well as for the setting I wanted a middle ages type thing going on but some of the weapons could be futuristic with its limits. Also it won't be on earth so to speak. An Earth type setting/planet. I havent really thought about throwing religion into it. I guess with each character can have there own reasons for hunting the creatures, so you can hunt them as reps. of evil if you wish. There will be different kinds of magic, just none of "I have to power to destroy you all with the flick of my wrist" crap. Hope that helped a little.

Yes it did. I was slightly confused because you stated shotguns and motorbikes in an old european setting. But if its in some parrellel world warped dimension of reality of your making than cool.

And the magic/ religion stuff is good to know. Im in for sure. ;)

Hmmm...... Vampires, Werewolves, laserswords, motorbikes, magic and technology......... THIS LOOKS LIKE IT'S GOING TO BE AN AWESOME GAME!!!! ok I'm done. Just a few questions. Are there zombies? Are there different cities with different aspects in them (eg. modern city, Future city, medieval mountains, etc)? and can evil creatures become good? Just asking......

I cant believe I forgot about the zombies! Ofcourse there are Zombies. As for evil things turning good I guess so but That should only happen once or twice. Thats about it. I dont want hoppers in this game! Hopper = side swticher. The cities having different qualities would be intresting. I'm still writting the general story and areas so I'm still deciding on that stuff.

I'm actually quite interested in this. It's been awhile since I've been on here since my computer broke down and It's been hard to find a post I like that actually gets somewhere, and now I believe I've found one...

At any rate, I am curious as to the limits though, on magic that is. I mean, I think I understand the weapons and all that but the magic still has me confused. I take it you're not wanting mages, but a few magical abilities here and there wouldn't be bad, correct?

Anyways, there's a name for the setting you're trying to get at, I can't think of it at the time but if I do I'll tell you. Also, the Google Toolbar is a great thing for proof-reading your replies, it's free and it check them inside the browser...

It's great, but anyways, Ill shut up now, and if you could help me with those few questions it would help a lot with me understanding the role-play and also with me being able to make a character. Thanks...

Well, it depends. What type of vampires do you want? What kind of setting?

I can make multiple altercations to my campaign to fit your qualifications.

I plan on hearing you first (since it'll be your campaign,mostly) and then I'll provide some ideas on how you could change it. I don't just want to, give my idea away..just like that.
