Please think very carefully and discuss before voting - you can change your mind easily, but not your vote. So please, discuss it for a few days first, and suggest specific stories. When we start the RPG, I will happily guide the story to keep the quality up, but if we at least settle on a general idea it will help us greatly.

Some examples:

Horror RPG
Haunted House - Eight teenage strangers wake up in a house. One of them mysteriously disappears, then reappears bloodied and dead. The remaining seven must figure out who each other is, what secrets the house hides, and escape the nightmare... while fighting with and against each other for survival!!
Devil Without A Cause - A band of Vampires come to town and start killing off everyone. Some townspeople form a renegade vigilante group and try to take the town back. Who will succeed?

Pirate RPG
X Marks The Spot - The fabled treasure map of Captain Shortbeard has emerged after being steeped in rumour and legend for centuries. Rival gangs of Pirates race to be the first to find the treasure.
A Mutiny - The crew of Ebeneezer begin to detest their new Captain and plot to overthrow him.

Political/Espionage RPG
The Not-So-Secret Service - An elite American taskforce has been trusted with a highly dangerous political mission - to infiltrate enemy bases and survey what equipment they have. However, while on enemy grounds, a horrifying secret is discovered that may shake the very core of the world.

Giant Robot RPG
The World Wars - Year 3130, space has been colonized. Each galaxy has developed similar Mechas to protect and attack their enemies, leading to a Cold War-esque stalemate across the Milky Way. However, after the highly public assasination of a much-loved political leader, all hell, and all metal, breaks loose, causing a massive scale war of man and machine. But who ordered the assasination, and why?

Adult RPG
A Stitch In Time - The Sailor is caught with his pants down - literally. However, was the Minister's wife really sewing him a new patch, or was something else going down? Elsewhere, Jason finds Brenda in bed, not with a Man, but with his Mam. How will he react to the news that not only is his wife a lesbian, but his mother too? Stay tuned to find out!

Anarchy/Armageddon RPG
Elseworld - Gina has been in a coma for 5 years. She wakes up to a desolate world - empty of dead yet void of life. Her country has been overtaken by a strange force, a small yet vicious government, and her fellow countrymen have been slaughtered, reduced to a mere few hundred, and forced to live underground. Can she make contact with the rebel leaders and help rebuild her land?




These are just a few ideas to get you going - please, suggest anything, don't be held back by these choices - if you have another, better, theme in mind, speak up. And in a few days, feel free to vote ssmile.gif then we shall begin!

I vote against the adult one. I highly doubt we'll be able to make a mature and informed adult-themed RP. I mean, how many of us here have ...oh nevermind. You get the point ssmile.gif

You can always imagine it out in your own way. Lots of us have seen steamy sex scenes one way or another in a movie before... I hope?

about the 'adult RP', why don't you just throw down the 80$, go into the city, and just live it out, instead of trying to imagine it on an internet site.



I don't like some of the ideas for the robot one. You can't have wars between galaxies, that would require impossible science. Wars between star systems within the same galaxy would be more likely to be possible, and for the story, would make not a big difference, but still it would be a far stretch. FTL travel is just impossible, that's common knowledge.

I think it would be more interesting if the story (under the unlikely odds that it is chosen), takes place less distantly in the future, and in an different timeline to real life. Say, what happened if the USA won the cold war outright instead of waiting for the USSR to fizzle. With the millitary might they have at that point, they start doing the "spreading democracy" thing, and by the year 2010, the USA has control over most of the asian continent and the middle east, with the exception of the island countries and india in asia.

This "spreading democracy", has the rest of the world in a panic. United, they decided to fight off the USA, not to liberate the people being colonized, but to preemptively stop another invasion. The tech at the time is kind of like the mech from 'metal gear'. This goes on for 5 years with the USA just trying to hold it's own until it's superior funding and scientists can create something that will win it all for them.

After the 5 years, the USA creates something on the scale of the mechs from the original gundam. The size difference is what makes the thing most dangerous, as it can just mow down entire armies of lesser mechs.

Then, the plans for the super mech somehow end up in allied hands, probably because of an american scientist who disagreed strongly with the entire war. A joint effort between the french and brittish creates just one of the super robots. That's enough, because when it meets the american super-robot on the battle field, it wins. The USA realizes that if they are to rebuild the super-robots and win, they would have to put more money than they can afford to use into the war. They go back into sleep mode as far as the war is concerned, trying to figure out a way to mass produce cost effiecient mechs.

15 years after that, they have managed it, and so has the allied forces. The war's on.

and that's where the RP takes place.

I like that a lot ssmile.gif

Seems there is a lot of opposition to the Adult theme, so that wont go ahead. Which is good as I don't think I could come up with anything that interesting in that area anyway ssmile.gif just doesn't seem an easy thing to RP.

I did it to improve my writing and overall writing style lol.gif But like I said, it's kind of hard to play it out when there's very few active females. Unless one of you guys wants to go play a chick or something xD

Hmm, looking back at the list the Armageddon one is my second choice. Not much of a fan of rp'ing with robots, pirates or spies. Lawl.

So, so far 3 for horror (2 for my Vampire idea), 1 for an original Mecha idea, and 1 for the Anarchy theme?

wait, do you mean you did an adult RP, or what I was talking about in my post?


I had an idea about the first horror idea, with the 8 people in a house thing. The person running it could PM all the people in the RP as to what thier role is, with someone getting assigned to be the killer, and then everyone else tries to figure it out without getting killed. If you are in the same room with the killer, you are dead, but the guy running it doesnt tell you until you have been in a room alone with other people first.

Yeah, I did mean I did adult RPs. Tough to write out convincingly without sounding cheesy, so I used it to help my writing style.

Btw, I like that idea you threw out. Unless the one deciding who lives and dies says, "I don't like you *die*" and your role in the story is maybe a few posts long. xD

well, I was thinking that it would be more of a competition, where the killer was trying to not be discovered. We could draw up a map (or just use the one from the board game clue). Players move from room to room, searching for clues. The person running it, who doesnt play a character, then gives clues through PM, none of wich are detailed enough to dead hit someone as the killer. The killer tries to get alone in a room with a person, because then at a certain point in the story, that person would be killable, either by choice of the killer or the person running it, I don't know. each player is trying to get enough details to peg for sure who the murderer is, without being alone with anyone else, if they can help it, though there is only so many clues in every room, so everyone going to one room would be a waste of time.

if someone gives me the green light, I could write up a list of clues and characters, and be the guy running it. We could have it as a game separate from the RP.
