Armageddon RPG Phase 1



Okay, first let me lay down the rules of this little RPG. Hopefully this won't take long:

- To begin playing, go to The Register and post your character's name. You may play as many characters as you want, as long as you can actively keep multiple storylines going at once.

- You are allowed to "God Mod" to a certain extent in this game. That means that you can play as other people's characters, so long as you do not change who that character is. For instance, if you need my character Paul to be in the same place as you for whatever reason, you can post an explanation of how Paul came to be in that place. However, if Paul is a skinny weak character, you cannot have him lifting up a car in your post!

- You can post in any sequence at any time - there are no limits on how much you can post per day, or how long your posts can be. However, there are two things to observe here:

1) Quality over quantity. I would rather have a great one paragraph post from you than a long, rambling, incoherent essay.

2) No double-posting. You must wait until at least one person, preferably two or three, people have posted before you can post again. However, to keep this thing going, if noone has posted in the past 24 hours you can double-post in that situation.

- Finally, and most importantly, NO SIGNATURES. There is a handy little button at the bottom of your posts - "Enable signature?" - please untick that box when in Phase 2 - The RPG!


------------------------------------------------

Okay, those are the rules, now this is how the game is played.

In a short while (within the next hour) I shall post the first post in The RPG. Using only this post, your character's name, and your imagination, you shall begin posting.

Your character can be anyone from anywhere as long as he can somehow fit into the bigger picture of the story. So, your character can be a member of the White House staff, a terrorist, a reporter who has discovered the threat, a civilian who has discovered the threat, or anybody who can conceivably tie into this story.

The game will be played in non-sequential order - my first post will be on a Tuesday. Your posts can be anywhere in the "present" (Saturday to Friday) or the "past" (you can flashback as far as you like). The only restriction here is nothing past Friday - in a few weeks I shall post a Friday post, and then there will be no restrictions - you can post at any time in the past, present or future.

So, as those of you who were in the Z Saga will know, this can lead to many interesting plotlines involving multiple characters in multiple scenarios at different points in time. But it all has to tie in some how to the events between Tuesday and Friday.

That is all for now. Read this, re-read this, and when you are ready to play read the RPG and go from there! This is all reactionary stuff - how you post dictates how I post, and so on.

Above all - have fun! The game is always subject to change, so if you have an idea go with it. I am not the writer/moderator of this RPG - we all are!


You may now use this topic for all Off-Topic Chat in regards to the RPG. Save the Phase 2 topic for In Character posting only ssmile.gif

Okay, the RPG has officially started. My first post is more story-heavy than action heavy, but I want you all to leap in as soon as possible.

If any of you want to play someone at the meeting, by all means go ahead. It may be good to RP your real questions about the story as a Minister of Defence within the story or something stongue.gif

Or alternatively you can begin with any character you like and post about your life as it is at the moment.

And Haven, I suspect you might want to begin RPing as the terrorists? You did a good job with the Special Ops when we were all being civilians last time around.

The timeline is just to keep us all on track. It gets chaotic having multiple characters in multiple scenarios with no way of tying them together. The timeline keeps it all on track.

I will begin updating Phase 3 once a few people start to post, and when that happens the events should be easy to follow and fit in with. Don't worry about it too much, this isn't a strict RPG. If you mess up you're timeline, I'll fix it when I update Phase 3 ssmile.gif concentrate on having fun and posting!!

What about point of view? Does it need to be in first?

Ok....three days...that pretty much means you plan to have at least one bomb be detonated based on your timeline.

I don't see a way for me to jump into this as a terrorist just yet. 'Barret' isn't a terrorist name anyway, stongue.gif. I'll see what I can do, but you've made it quite difficult for all of us to start.

Post as you like, so long as it is readable.

Ok... okay, I'll make it a bit easier.

Remeber that the Z Saga started with a post that had nothing to do with the main RPG. Well, think of it that way. Just introduce your character.

Okay, I'll make it even easier. On Friday, at least one bomb will go off. Until I post that post, you may post about your character's everyday life pre-bomb, for example about who you are, where you work, etc.

The real tension is going to be when the attacks begin and how we all cope with that. Depending on your character's introductions and first few posts depends on how severe the attacks will be.

So, think of it this way... RP independant of each other for a few days, then I will post a cataclymatic bombing attack, and then the real RPG will kick off. Consider these first few posts to be intros. ssmile.gif

Loving the first few posts. Becca and Jean are really getting into the swing of things ^_^

Remember though, no signatures -_- Please disable them, makes my job easier and less edit-heavy stongue.gif

Very nice post Singularity!!

Becca, I'm going to try and get our characters to meet up. If you choose to be a part of the good fight, or want to pretend to work with the CIA and then double-cross us or something, my character will be waiting across the road until around 9:00pm.
