Anyone would be interested?

Maybe, maybe not, but for me to give any definitive answer I'd need a lot more information about the plot, setting, etc. etc. I potentially have one slot left open for another RPG thread, so just let me know...

Like Tamachi said you need to include some more information, petal.

What kind of setting (modern, fantasy, historical etc),
what kind of powers (if any) would people have,
do you want only hunter/innocent characters or will you allow people to play vampires, what vampire rule are you using (stake/holy water/sunlight to kill, or none, or a select combination..),
what kinds of weapons people can have (obviously affected by the setting),
character sheet, r
ough storyline (are you after a [i]particular[/i] vampire or just random ones) etc...


That should give you a little to work on ;)

Well, you could always go and download the Google Toolbar, it has a Spellcheck Feature, if spelling is the problem, I always recommend that, but since you were asking for grammatical help that probably isn't what you need. I know several people here will write a post in Word and then transfer it here, and that works pretty well for them. I'm a Language geek though, so I don't use that, but I do use the Spellcheck on my Google Toolbar a [b][i]lot[/i][/b]...

I hope you won't shot me for my grammar.


Forget about everything that you know. There is no true in words that are said now. Many people are mapinulated by them. By childrens of night...by vampires. Forget about Dracula from Tod Browning movie, forget these fairy tales. They are more ancient then most civilizations. And their organization is more powerful then most corporations.
They have many followers who obey every their wish in hope that one day they will become immortal like them. There is rumours that they have followers even in goverment.
Many of them don't know and they don't care from where they came or who was the first of their kind. All what they want is blood. They roam streets in search of next prey. Many of them are just criminals who make all dirty work, who kill only because they can.
But there are other. There are vampires who try to find their roots because there is storys that ancient vampires had many secrets. And if someone will find these secrets then they will be undefeatable. And they try hard and maybe one day they will find something but until now they hadn't find anything that could help them destroy humans. But maybe they will find something one day...
But where is black there always will be white. There is warriors of light, hunters you can call them as you like. They hunt childrens of night, they fight with them. This fight is old as this world. Many wars come and go but this war never stops...

Year 2020.

Ok basicly you will play for hunters who are very hated in vampire society. You are their worst headache. And they would like to see you dead so they also hunt hunters. :)

Well let's agree that humans are weak. I don't think that we should have half-vampires or something like that so i think that hunters could have implants that makes them stronger etc.

Killing vampire:

silver (bullets, swords etc.),
sunligh (natural/man-made),
garlic (won't kill but hurt badly),
old-school wooden stake into heart,
fire.

Weapons:

Well no blasters or anything like this. Weapons from nowadays. But you can have something like automatic crossbow, illuminant grenades or something like that.

Well, let me start off by saying that you set up the setting very well, putting to light your alternate reality of vampires, however, you didn't really set up the plot of the story, that is, what the point of the RPG is. I'm sure that it will have something to do with stopping the vampires from finding something to destroy the humans, but why not give us a little more detail?..

Is it a powerful sub-group or just one very powerful vampire? Are the players going to be specially trained soldiers, or just random people that have sided against a common threat? I'm not saying go into so much detail that you give away spoilers that you want to keep hidden, but always try and include as much as possible...

Also, it isn't that big of a deal, but some people will be turned off depending on how well the GM's grammar is. That's not saying you have to be perfect, btu I know you can do better than that, even if you have to use Word and a Spellcheck Feature to do it. It will make your posts cleaner and easier to understand, which means that there will be less confusion during the RPG...

Other than that, I hope people garner interest in your thread here, but I must suggest that you participate in some games that are GMed by people more experienced to these boards before you try to start one of your own. Oftentimes that will help you get the feel for how things around here work, and you could even learn from the GM as you go. These are all just suggestions, however, so feel free to do whatever you want. I'm just trying to help ya out...

I am one of those people who are turned off but have a quick check of Wyxz's profile- not everyone is from an english-speaking country :P

I've been RPing with him in a Star Wars thread and he's been doing fine- and, quite importantly, is very receptive of advice ;)

Oh, well in that case I'd say you're doing a damn fine job at it. Keep up the good work, English language is easily the most redundant and complex languages to learn, mainly because one word can mean so many things, and often time can be pronounced different ways with different meanings. As a result, learning other languages for me is hard, but at the same time it makes a lot more sense. Anyways, I'm rambling and spamming your thread, sorry...


...and, quite importantly, is very receptive of advice ;)


And that's all you need when you're role-playing with the right people, that and a bit of determination and heart. With that, I'd venture to say you could accomplish anything...

I might be down for this Wyxz. Lemme know when you want character sheets up by, I have played a few Vampire:The Masquerade games and stuff like that.

Isn't he?
I'm so bloody jealous.
I used to be really good at French, but there are so many similarities between it and English that it was easy- the difference between English and Lithuanian is much greater.
