    Tailored RPs Initial Interest and character ideas

    Since I have enough free time to open myself to some Rping, I thought I would offer to run some little games for anyone who might be interested. I'd be looking at running threads for individuals or potentially small groups with enough corresponding interest, similar to how the EGG threads play out. I've got a fairly simple stat system that should cover anything that crops up and will tailor it more so to individual games as needed. The main stats will use a d100 system where you need to roll equal to or lower than your statistic to succeed the check.

    Stat System:
    Spoiler


    Below I've listed a few settings I've been toying with that I'm looking to run with, though I am by no means limiting the choices to theses. I can run fantasy things easily enough and would love to run something based around the Disgaea or Shin Megami series given the opportunity. I'm happy to tailor things to suit sexual encounters, though I'm likewise happy to run cleaner games. if you are interested, please give me an idea of what you'd be wanting, further figuring out will probably be done via PMs. I'd probably be looking at about 4-5 games to start with tops, just to see how well I keep up with those.

    Dreamweave
    Highlights: Modern setting, Secret Research, Psychic horrors, Mind rape
    A research centre studying the psychic phenomenon know as the Dreamweave falls silent. A containment unit is sent in to secure the facility and to ascertain the status of the test subjects and personnel. The very facility itself is warped by the powers being unleashed, making simple survival inside the facility no easy task. While the test subjects struggle to control their powers and retain their sanity, the surviving personal attempt to fight their way to the surface. The containment unit meanwhile faces the task of putting an end to the source while tying up any loose ends.

    Genner:
    Highlights: Sci-fi setting, Sentient androids, Monster girls and boys, Space

    The human race has advanced to the stars, colonising two new earths nd countless other genworlds inhabited by genetically altered humans. Death has been somewhat overcome by copying consciousness to lifelike android bodies, creating the Whispers, though they lie without any rights. Humans tend to only look out for themselves and various corporations have taken to abusing the lack of rights Whispers and Genhumans have.

    Broken
    Highlights: Modernish post apoc setting, bizarre mutations, corruption, strange critters

    At some point the world ended, or at least it certainly seems like it. Empty broken streets and desolate land ave replaced the once thriving humanity. Most survivors have become something else, their bodies changing with no rhyme or reason. Terrible beasts stalk the darkness of the night, dragging off whatever they can find.

    Magic Storm
    Highlights: Fantasy Magic-punk, magic powered airships, magic firearms, magic monstrosities.

    One great nation has started to harness magic to power all manner of things, using it as we would electricity. Great cities have arose with numerous inventions being created to take advantage of this new power. The only problem is that magic is not something that can be drawn from the air or the land. Those who can naturally use magic have been dwindling in number, in some cases disappearing from the nation. Tensions with the neighbouring nations have always been strained over their differing values, but when the disappearances started to spread beyond the nation's boarders, war was quick to follow.

    Oh, you can count me in for some of the Broken or Genner threads.

    Good idea for the stat system by the way.
    I come from the part of the Internet that is ACTUALLY dark and full of terrors.

      Sounds pretty cool. Broken sounds awesome. Dreamweave too, possibly.

          Re: Tailored RPs

          Nope. I kind of lean to magic storm due to my personal preference of high fantasy settings. Though broken or genner sounds okay to me too. If I went broken I'd like it to be fallout'isque.

          Perfection is humanly impossible. The more you reach for it the farther away it grows. Failure is inherited to our species as a whole. But punishing ourselves and beating ourselves up for it helps nothing. The best any decent person can do is try, and try, and try again. And try to get better little by little day by day.

              Also interest.
              Mind rape is either hypnosis/mind control, or psychological torture with possibly a sexual bend.

              No, though I find all of the potential settings interesting in their own right.

              Unfortunately, I am currently at RP saturation once more, even though many of them have slowed down significantly of late. So, while this does interest me as so many things do, particularly since it's someone I haven't RPed with before, I must bow out.

                I personally am not for the mind stuff, makes my penis cry. And magic could be interesting, but it's not striking a particular fantasy with the description at the moment. I'm with burrito on this, mainly for broken.

                  Magic storm is of interest to me. I shall consider it, especially knowing how good your threads are.

                    Re: Tailored RPs

                    Seeing as there seems to be the most interest in Broken and Magic Storm I went ahead and fleshed out the worlds a little so we can start narrowing things down. I'm hoping you'll find something to catch your fancy, otherwise I'm happy to run something more specific for individuals. I'll throw up a request sheet as well so I can get an idea of what I particular everyone wants out of their games.


                    Broken
                    The cold has started to creep over the ruins of the nameless city, snow and ice making the already harsh living conditions a true test of the survivors spirits. Their numbers are dwindling and tensions between small groups are running high as food stores run low. Some have succumb to their changes while others have simply walked into the wastes, hoping to find something more beyond the cities limits. The only blessing has been a reduction in the number of creatures prowling the streets at night, though they still pose a great threat to the unwary.

                    Nobody knows how this all came to pass, almost al memories from before the calamity seemingly wiped clean along with the world itself. There are those that seek to remember themselves, hoping it might stop them from turning into something else. Others band together, hoping their numbers will give them the strength to survive the moonless nights.

                    Perhaps you are a human, more or less, still trying to survive in the broken world. You may have found friends, allies, perhaps even family among the ruins. Maybe you are trying to right the world after the calamity some twenty years ago, or maybe you simply want to survive. Perhaps you've succumb to the change that afflicts those who live, becoming one with the darkness of the night. Perhaps you feel all would be better if they were as you are, or maybe you seek to regain what you have lost.


                    Magic Storm
                    With advent of the war between the great nation of Tervinan and the magically adapt kingdom of Valance, the world has witnessed a clash of power that has never before been experienced. Great magic powered machines decimate fortresses while powerful chromatic sorcerers wipe clean the fields of battle. Both sides utilise the best and brightest their nations have to offer, leading only to more pronounced devastation along the boarder towns. Whoever may win the war, the cost will doubtless scar the land for generations to come.

                    Even while the war is being fought, there is a growing unrest on both sides far from the front lines. In Tervinan, a series of terrorist attacks have left many cities without the power they have come to rely on. In Valance, there is growing disdain for those who favor technology over the arcane, with several steam works being forced to close. On top of all this there have been rumours of the smaller neighbouring nations funding the opposing side, threatening to spill the war into other territories.

                    Perhaps you are a soldier in one of the armies, or a civilian safe from the front lines. Maybe you can use magic and find yourself pressed into service or worse yet troubled by the disappearance of your fellow magic users. You might find yourself tasked with resolving the the growing civil unrest, or perhaps you are part of the problem.


                    Things I'd like to know from you:
                    You can post a reply here or PM me.

                    Preferred setting: (Can be something other than these two)
                    General plot idea: (What you roughly want to be doing in said world.)
                    Sex: (No, if it fits naturally, or if you want it to be the focus. Feel free to add any specifics/ things you'd like me to include.)

                    Character ideas: (Anything you might have in mind, nothing will be set in stone until play begins. I'll work up a list of traits and extras which might appeal to you based on this information.)
                    Solo/Group: (Simples, I'll try to run group games if there is interest but I'm happy to run solo games equally.)

                      Re: Tailored RPs

                      Okay, Broken sounds a whole lot more awesome to me now. So long as I can play a meta-human who hasn't lost his mind.

                      And Magic storm sounds a whole lot more appealing knowing I can be a soldier and not some lightweight in a robe.

                        I like broken, but I have no idea what the general accomplishment would be. It seems like in that situation, it'd be surviving every day is the goal. Maybe I just lack the originality, but unless you're escaping the planet, which entails sci-fi settings, or somehow fix the earth? Idk. I'm not saying it's any fault of yours, it sounds like an amazing story, so amazing, in fact, that I wouldn't know how to expand on it with the thought of myself or anyone else in mind without being in it.

                          The levels of personal change will be up to you, including the state of your characters mind aside from the memory loss everyone has suffered. It can be purely cosmetic changes, beneficial changes or perhaps crippling changes. Something akin to this is what I had in mind, but I'm happy for people to stick to what they'd prefer.

                          Actually all my thoughts for Magic Storm have the 'mages' running around in uniforms like everyone else. Robes get in the way. =P

                          Well, I left things pretty vague to keep it open for ideas, since I wasn't really planning to set the whole group towards the same task but I understand that there isn't really a goal as such. The wastes surrounding the city will be full of things to explore but again, unless you're into the whole exploring strange worlds deal that probably doesn't help.

                          Quick list off the top of my head of potential personal objectives:

                          - You have a clear memory of a family but don't have any clue where they are now. your search finally seems to be getting somewhere when you find a clue that they are still alive.
                          - You could simply be all about the saving others from the perils of the night or otherwise hunting down the source of the beasts to try to put an end to them.
                          - Rumours persist of another town beyond the wastes and you're determined to see if they are true or not by braving the wilds.

                          I have no idea if that helps but there we go all the same.

                            That actually does, thank you. The latter suggestion really should have been obvious to me. Quite uninspiring to have someone give such indicative examples of lacking originality to want to be a member of an rp, eh?
