I had an inspiration for an amazing RP recently. As most of you who have RP my Threads know, I am a tried and true style GM. Using cliches to my advantage to make players feel at home. Well, here's my idea...putting everyone through hell, consistently. There's more to it than that although the thought hasn't fully fleshed itsself out in my head yet. Basically the setting would be a major city where a series of disasters would occur leading up to one super cataclysm. At that point the survivors would find the world to be completely changed, seemingly barren until they discover strange mutations of life, both good and very,very,bad. It would be very fast paced in terms of event to event occurance and combat heavy as well...I'll let you know when I have some details set up.

Sounds cool I will be watching for more information

02/16/2007 8:22 PM

I'm up for that, Just give us some more info when u get it sorted out a little more

Is that suppposed to be different than your other rps? *ducks* I kid! I kid! As if I could talk anyways.

Sounds very spiffy though. If you decide to do it, I'd probably join...barring my computer exploding or the like.

Definatley intereseting. I had thought of the same thing, but for a story as opposed to a RPG. If you want help (sorry, i am an Idea man) or mor ideas, drop me a line. I would certainly like to check it out.

OK here are some details I've hashed out thus far. These happenings will occur on a mirror planet to Earth Called Thera. In a city similar to New York called Eden Colony. In this mirror realm, Science has progressed faster and government has progressed slower, leaving the world in a similar state as far as nationalities and and the like, but instead of countries and states there would be Empires and Houses. The end result being a near-futuristic setting with medieval society. In this realm, people are experimenting with quantum energies and open a rift to the real earth and discover everything there. the problem being that the same matter cannot exist with itsself for long and existance wraps around itsself and the worlds meld and are destroyed. we will be the survivors, landing on the new planet froman expidition in space to discover everything ruined with a mix of futuristic and modern ruins, weapons, and items. eventually we would venture underground to find a bevvy of new races both fantasy and hybridized from natural creatures and plants. The goal being to find the rift at the core of the new planet and seal it in hopes of setting things right.

Will this game have any alien races?

02/28/2007 10:31 PM

I suppose so, so long as you submit them for my approval first.

I'm interested. I'd like to start to role play on here. I can post at least 5-6 paragraphs average..umm do you need like an example post because you've never seen me post or anything like that? just curious. Happy to if thats what is wanted. Hmm. I'm willing to play a fragile female character.I like playing victims its always fun.

03/01/2007 6:12 AM

None to worry, I just need to see a character sheet and you need to know the rules, so when/if this leaves the ground we'll handle that.

03/01/2007 9:27 AM

Would the characters undergo "mutations" themselves?

So would it become something like an X-men style RPG?

03/01/2007 9:46 AM

Yes, but they wouldn't be like the x-men, more like a genetic purity that is the catalyst for superhuman abilities that spawn from other animal's natural defenses. IE Spines like a porcupine may begin to grow at some point, or the camoflage of a chameleon. Granted that there may be some off the wall renditions of powers a la spiderman...but not like true superhuman laser eyes and stuff.

03/01/2007 11:05 AM

That'd be interesting...

I was hoping to find an X-men styled RPG, one that works with natural, albeit exponentiated, abilites. Since I haven't found one I was thinking of seeing if someone would be interested, but this seems like it would do wonderfully, especially since I don't have enough experience to begin one of my own.

I believe I would have to have a go in this if you create it.


03/01/2007 11:49 AM

I would join when it gets off the ground, just need to come up with a new character most of my others are quite similar

03/01/2007 4:10 PM

Sure, I'll play. Assuming we ever start it.

03/01/2007 5:01 PM

Definately want to play ^^

03/04/2007 8:59 AM

Well, I seem to have generated at least three or four players interest...good enough for me...I will open the RP thread sometime tonight so if you want to post Character sheets here, that's fine, just cut and paste them after theyre approved into the RP.

03/12/2007 10:43 AM

So, Dark Knight, is this ever going to be created? Or did I miss something?

03/12/2007 1:32 PM

I'd love to join this one! Er... should we post bios?

03/13/2007 1:20 AM

It's up, I believe- in Sci Fi forum.
Mirror World: Thera Construct (?I think that's right)

Mirror World: Thera Construct (?I think that's right)

Yep, and the OOC is temporarily in the discussions section if I'm not mistaken. I have a few chars in already but noone's posted yet, so...

03/15/2007 8:54 AM

04/27/2007 7:30 PM
