Hello all! I come up with this idea after watching the original stargate, but by no means am I plagerizing(see, I cant even spell it)

Essentially the story goes somthing like this, Aliens from other planets have landed in ancient egypt and thanks to thier help, have made it a large port for star cruiser landings, literally the whole country has been transformed into a large port and bazaar. Thanks to the knowlegde the aliens have to offer, Egypt prospered, spreading its realm to encompass almost all of North Africa, with it's sites set on concurring the Ilsand of Altlantis(thats right people, atlantis) However, Atlantis as well as been in contact with an alien race, they live underneath the actual city of atlantis, since they are a seagoing race. The thread would revolve around the tale of a thief that sparked a war between two mighty nations, the exact story is still under development, but I have great expexctations as to what I can concoct, so if any of you are interested, please let me know, everyone one is welcome, and the more people who can rp, the better, so tell me what ya guys think!

cheers for now,
Orion

It seems to be a fertile seed to base into the earth that will eventually sprout into a cornucopia of success... or in other words, looks like it has a lot of potential. However, a few issues seem to still nag at me, such as a mode of transportation. Boats? Submarines? Tuna? And what about weaponry? Are we past, present, or are we deep into the realm of speculation that will eventually become the future armory? Other than these few questions, I think this idea could eventually become a successful Role Playing Reality.

Sounds interesting. Just basically the same questions Ds52 just said. I might be interested in going into it.

Ive been fine tuning it, and while the exact rp is still a bit hazy to me (working on it, just give me some time)

Transportation would depend on the given situation, I think its safe to assume we can have hover crafts that use fractal ionization to dispel local gravity, but the thing is I want whatever can come to mind, steam power, coal, tuna is a possibility!

The way this world works the aliens are the real one running the show here, they'll let the humans play there little wargames its of no concern to them, the high pharoah of Egypt is actually plagued ny an Alien, doing its bidding as the creature seems fit, I dont want to ruin to much of this story, so Im going to give you what I have developed in terms of alien races and classes for the players invloved.





The Anubian's:

An alien race of dog like humannoids, the Anubian's are a warrior race, and are trained since birth in the assassin arts. They're leader, Anubis(getting the egyptian tie in?) is a Top ranking general in the pharoahs army, and he also runs a bunch of seedy underground operations. The Anubians are as clever as they are strong, using thier wit as well as thier strenght to get their way, the creatures weild a dark energy that allows them to phase shift through walls and bond genetically to a living beings shadow.

The Avianis:

The protectors of the pharoah and police of egypt, although they are seen in evry class of society. These falcon people are led by the high pheonix Ra, who dwells on there home planet, Horus is Ra's son and is here to gather materials from earth itself, the planet the avianis are from is in danger from a meteor, the same meteor that destroyed the earth and gave it it's moon, Ra has sent his son to gain the egyptians trust, they will need to gather all the materials they can to build a new planet from scratch, although mighty warriors, the avianos rely more on there brains then there brawn, weilding incredibly advanced science's to better themselves and to win egypt's resources. The avianis are natural flyers and have eyesight that is phenominal.

The Basiliki:

A race of lizard men that hail from a drifter colony, they space colony itself is so old no one knows where they are originally from. They are master crafters and inhabit many shops and inn's trying to find a planet that can sustain them. Basiliki are incredibly wiry and agile, and many work as mercenaries when stealth is needed, they have the ability to camofluage into thier sourrounding's and thier tongue is almost the only weopon they need in a fight due to the deadly poison from a parasites on their tongues.




This is a just a sample, im making more races as we speak, and should post more about it tomorrow.

tuna is a possibility!


A mode of transportation and a nutritious snack! ;)

Overall, this looks like it is coming along, but what about the armaments? And the Atlantians?

Other than that, it appears as though this will be a very successful RP, and it appears all you effort will be worth it.

Well, that sounded like a chinese fortune cookie...

Anyways, it looks like it you are working very hard on it, and it's paying off.

lucky numbers: 6, 53, 27

I definitely like the idea. I can't necessarily guarantee that I'll join since I'm already in a few RPs, but if I can I will, and otherwise I'd be willing to help out however possible.

Thank you both for your support, I think the whole Atlantean thing might be scratched because Im considering taking the story in a different direction. Heres what Ive crafted as a more concrete story.

A small team of thieves(dat be us, at least for now) have been hired by Anubis(this could be subject to change) to investigate a small human settlement in the desert, the thieves(I want them all to be alien races, but im not going to hold it agaisnt anyone if there are humans......perhaps it would be better that way) Supposedly its an outlaw camp, and at the same time religous zeolots travel with this band carrying with them an ancient relic of Atlantis that they worship. the hiest and everything will be rp'd through, either way an accident will happen, opening a portal to the "otherworld" witch the humans fear, possibly releasing a demon horde, I want it to be a mix of fantasy and sci fi, thats mainly why I wanted all aliens, its like the Aliens have fucked up, and released a primordial evil that the humans fear, Egypt will be plunged into a war of survival as the demon horde seeds its way through, the aliens fight to protect thier human assets, and as for the Atlanteans, they might be the keeper of the relic(still dont know what it will be) and the thieves now with a price on thier head from Anubis, will tek to Atlantis to see if they can do the evil they have summoned, many will die. Thats why I need as manyrp'ers as I can get, I want this to be a story told on a grand scale, perhaps not just with the thieves but fromm all walks of life, so if you are interested in this rp, please tell a friend on your email and spread the good word.

Im still working on weapons, races and technology, but should have a solid direction to go in by tomorrow, and please dont be afraid to share input, every rp I do is collaborative, so if anyone has any ideas, feel free to post here or email me.

This sounds pretty interesting, and Im always up to play a thief. I like the idea, but I do have a bit of advice I'd like to give. Instead of the small group being all theives, why not allow it to be a diverse group, because normally a mercenary group of that sort would have different kinds of members...

Just a bit of advice though, I have a little more I'd liek to add but I figure Ill hold that off until I see how you react to that, lol. I dont mean to take over or change anything you already want the way it is, I just figured I'd try and help ya out...

No need to feel awkward, I almost always try to collaborate on my rp's tomake the experience better as a whole for everyone involved , so feel free to pitch any ideas that come to mind and I will take them into consideration, I do agree they cant all be thieves, and I was going to make specific jobs and stuff like that, I just need the time since my real world life can be a little hectic.

Wow this sounds like it coming along great. It seems like Atlantis would end up being a huge stronghold. Cause the aliens would not be exactly protecting something of that magnitude with minimal security. Mabye something like the Basiliki have kept the Demonic Horde inside the portal and have been on earth long before humans. They know the secret of Ra and how he is controlled by the Demon Horde and how they have been using him to take over Earth. Like that our team is hired by Ra to find this relic and unleash the Demonic Horde upon the Earth. This may be one of the things he was planning on doing. It is kind of confusuing when I read through this.

Also, are the aliens in disguise or do the humans know of their existance?

You said something about you wanting it to be si-fi/fantasy so that gives you ether a highly diverse amount of weaponry or a tight knit group of weapons that are available.

This is sounding really cool so far. So do we all pick one side or split between the two? Whata character relams do we get to explore?

No, the Basilki have a different purose in this story, that's not the direction I was going in.

Also Ra isnt on Earth, a Human rules, but he is a puppet king to an alien being, like I said Im working on it.

The humans respect and fear the aliens for what they can do, In every major city in Egypt, there is a slum section for poorer alins and humans, then of course an area where only the aliens are allowed, where they plot and plan on how to manipulate there human puppets.

Im almost done, and will give everything you need to know about this thread later tonight, thank you for your patience.

Well this has peaked my interest and seeing as how I just recently came back I wouldn't mind joining. I need to see if my roleplaying skills have gotten rusty. :P

Hey, I'd love to join, too. I'm a very big fan of stargate sg-1 and atlantis, bsg. I especially like the "grand scale" part of your description. Maybe one of us can be a demon or an atlantean or a human/cyborg/akien hybrid? Post the first thread anytime....!

Also, how do you think we can kill demons? I was thinking we'd use mini nukes if the going get tough ;) Also, what type of transportation, i'm sure these questions have been asked already but you haven't written about them... can the players actively take part in "creating" your world?

Lreth
04/08/2006 11:40 AM

sorry, i just realized that your last post was on feb 25th... which means that you've probably lost interested in this whole thing since you wrote on that post "I'll post the weapons (etc) tomorrow" which u (orion) never did.

does anyone want to continue with this except we have a different thread master? for example, I'd love to do it since this has sparkled some pretty good ideas and i have a pretty good conception of how to fix the technology in an invigorating way. Or we can all do it together but we have to do it fast because my fingers are itchy.

i guess it all depends on how many people still have interest for this idea.

Sorry bro, already patented, Im still up for this rp and have finally gotten a firm idrea of where I'm going, I'll email everyone who is interested and most likely post an rp thread tomorrow. I truly want to aplogize for the excessive wait, real life has me budgeting time a little differently, but Im now on spring break and more than willing to get this thread up and running, so no, you cannot be the thread master.
