Thanks Vod. 

Concept II could also be adapted to fit the new game that's out where the Nazis won WW II.  Don't recall the name off-hand, but it's new, and I'm sure some of the gamers here and playing it.  However, it uses a lot of new/concept weapons that are unique to that game that I and probably most others woudln't be familiar with.

Any variations/additions to these ideas are more then welcome; that's why they're here, looking for feedback.  There's a lot of active RPs open right now, so this might not be the best time to post one of them, but if anybody feels up to it I'd gladly join either one  *as I said, not looking to create another RP right now, but would love to advise in the creation prosses and join*

Anyone else have comments/suggestions or another RPG concept they'd like to share?

Re: Aliit Forum

Either Rooskies or Krauts would be fun. The characters would be quite imaginative, which would be cool. There are at least 4 or so active RPG's, so later might be good. I'll do it, if no one else more experienced wants to. The stories got a lot of merit--I'm just a bit new at it.

And no, no new current ideas. Anyone else?

Re: Aliit Forum

There's another idea that was rattling around him my head, but i forgot it............

WAIT, THERE IT IS!  Right where I left it under the 'I'm hungery' file  tongue

Anyone else play MechWarrior?  It was an Activision game *if memory serves* and was later bought out by Microsoft.

I first played MechWarrior 2 when I was young on my Mom's old Windows 95  *so yeah, that one's old.*  Last one I was able to play was MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries.  There were others, but only on console *me no have sad *

If you've never played any of the games, you are placed in the middle of 31st century combat, and your job is to drive one of these:

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/a8/MechWarrior_2_cover.jpg

a MASSIVE walking tank of sorts like the AT-ST, but MUCH better!  There are many different types of mechs *The one pictureed being my favorite, a heavy called the Timberwolf, or 'Mad Cat' by Inersphere pukes tongue * including lights, medium, heavy, and assault classes.

The main point of contension in the Mech world is uaually between the Claners and the Inner Sphere, but internal conflicts are always breaking out within the two.

Most of the games that have been made by Microsoft deal with the Inner Sphere and it's inner conflicts, while the older games were about the Clans.  I'm an old Clan Wolf fan from Mech 2 still *DAMN JADE FALCON CLAN!!!*  It's a complicated story-line, so a smaller comflict within the Inner Sphere would be easier to manage for an RPG here.  Wiki has the entire list of Mechs available, but few pics.  I MIGHT be able to take some in-game pics, but I've never tried it before with my game, so no promises.

If anybody is interested, this is a third concept that we might be able to iron out into something workable.

Glad you like the idea.  Not that I placed an idea on the table there, just the gener.  Havn't played in a while myself, and I never was 100% up to speed on the backstory/history, but I still think a limited scope RP would be fun

Wow! Great Ideas... but they totally sound way out of my leauge. I know I've never played either of those games, and in general don't know much about actual war. Star Wars... yes. Middle Earth... yes. Oblivion... a smidge. But the 15 minuets I have playing CoD4 is a much real war type stuff I know. But I'm sure you guys will make them great!

I'm sure you could play the Freedom Fighters RP.  What I love about that one is that anyone can play it.  The setting is in real life, in our time  *unless we go with the Nazi version;* it's just an alternate history.  You could basically play yourself.  If you know nothing about guns or real warfare, fine; most real people don't.  It would add that much more or a realistic touch to the setting to have normal people who are caught up in the invasion. 

If you feel totally out of place in it, maybe it's not for you.  But it's not as technical as you might think.  It's not like this was a Navy SEAL RP where you should know something about military tactics, weapons, and such to fit in.  This is about normal people *with probably a sprinkling of military personel who have joined the underground movement* taking up arms to fight off an invader.

I'm thinkin' this is one that everybody can really enjoy  smile

Re: Aliit Forum

I like it too, as I've said. And not everyone would have to be a resistance "fighter". Others could be civilians hiding, running supplies, medics, etc. It would be a very creative RP, because, as a resistance, its not a very organized, strict, or militaristic group. It's likely ragtag, with some being former soldiers, and others possibly criminals. Teenagers with a taste for adventure. It would be a very interesting RP to be in, to see how people create their characters looks, clothes, past, personality, and, for soldiers, weapons.

I love all the RPG ideas, but especially 1 and 2 as I am more familiar with those.  Hope you can get at least one of these up, as I would love to be in one.  Keep up the great work vod(e) big_smile

vod is singular--brother/sister/something else? and is pronounce like it looks. soft "o" vohd.

vode is plural--brothers/sisters/whatever I forgots. and is pronounced "vod-DAY"

so it would be vode, if you're talking to all of us. Or vod if your talking to Ralin, as he came up with them all.

So how do you all want to do this?  Should we take a vote?  A_A seems enthusiastic for Mech, and we have Werda Verd for Freedom Fighters so far. 

I came up with them, so I'm happy with any of them  big_smile

I have to agree with Si on that one, I'm all for freedom fighters as I've never had any experience with Mech, but it is your choice seeing as how you created these awesome ideas big_smile

Re: Aliit Forum

I've given my two cents. Mechs sounds interesting, but my lack of experience and laziness to learn means it's doubtful that I'd join it. A Mando one would be good to. I'm always game for more Mando RP's.

If you get into the politics of the setting, yeah, Mech is complicated as HELL!  However, if you stick to the warrior side of it *what you do in the games* it's pretty simple.

Game Side of Mech:

Drive a super improved and better looking AT-ST-like vehical and blow the crap outa' stuff..........and thats about it

Political Side of Mech:

I don't even know......  Well, I do some of it, but SUPER complicated.  Long story short, you got the Inner Sphere in the middle of the galaxy based on earth *your more average folks,* and you got the Clans on the outskirts of the galaxy.

Clans make better weapons and have better warriors.................but they're sorta weird on some issues

Inner Sphere has more production power and seems to always get lucky......


However, you guys are right.  Freedom Fighters is MUCH more user friendly for those who don't know the genre of modern weapons/tactics; the setting would be flooded with those who don't, so you would fit right in.  In Mech, would be hard to play anything other then a Mech pilot, requiring you to know something about that field *or going out and learning someting about it.*

Thanks vod, but I'm not looking to mod any more RPGs; not now anyway.  Got a bitter taste still about how I fell down on ES5, and don't want that to happen again. 

I'm more interested in looking for a position as #2 in the moding process; the writer to the director in a movie so to speak.  A good poster and RP mod like Werda Verd or V_M could be the directer, posting and moderating the RP.  I can be here to help expand on the details, background, and setting of the RP as needed.

Anyway, that's what I'm aming to do.  If anybody wants to Mod one of these, give me a heads up and we'll work it out.

And BTW, when we do the Freedom Fighters RP, I got dibs on M-14 with sniper scope and a pair of 1911 .45s    big_smile

Re: Aliit Forum

yeah, the customability of weapons and diversity will be pretty sweet, when this gets going. I'd love to do it, if no one else wants too. But theres at least, what 3? active RP's going. AoS is pretty far along, but I bet it's got a good bit of story left. RC's just getting started, same with Jedi Purge.

I'll have to think about what to do. What year would this be in? The Cold war was a while ago, but if it went Hot, it might have lasted longer.....

Re: Aliit Forum

I planed to steal the intro from the game that this is based on; will send it to you in a PM.

Timeline would be about now

The main reason I'm thinking you should be the RP mod Werda is becuase I think it should be very similar to RepComm.  A small scope RP in the midst of chaos.  The story should be narrowly centered around a small resistance group and any civies they pick up, and the Reds who they are directly fighting.  With our smallish active member communtiy, it really helps to keep the scope of these RPs low; one of my mistakes with ES5.  The smaller the scope of the RP, the more interation, and the smoother/faster the gameplay and timeline. 

So the setting is a single, small, resistance group fighting the Reds in NY City *or someplace else*

"You set a code to live by.  I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted...I won't be laid a hand on.  I don't do these things to other men, and I require the same from them."

Re: Aliit Forum

I'm honored tongue Yeah, I can see the similarities. Well, I'd be glad to do it. Timeline: Now sounds good. Location: NY's fine. Big, lots of underground areas, not that I know what they're like... big_smile I'm looking forward to setting it up. Now, is now a good time, or wait a few weeks....

and a PM would be great. Thanks.

Re: Aliit Forum

I'm thinking wait until at least another one of the active RPGs dies or seriously slows down.  AoS as picked up speed lately, so until that cools back down and/or something dies, I think we better just hang onto this one.

Since we have to wait, might be a good time to share character concepts if anybody isn't sure what they want to use  *COUGH Si&CA COUGH*

Re: Aliit Forum

Was that suppose to be a hint or something? tongue

Can't wait to get into this one, although you might have a point for the character concepts and what I want to use.  I'm not quiet familiar with gun names, so if you want to help me out on that aspect, all I'm really looking for is a good sniper and a decent pistol.  Other than that, I think I have the rest of my character for this one ready, looks like it's gonna be a good one big_smile

Here ya go, vod, and for anybody else who needs some help on this respect. 

List or Russian Weaponry

There's some really old, and some really new stuff in that list; some of it going back to WW II.  In this RP, it's set at about our time, but it's working from an alternate history.  The Communist Russians pretty much run the world.  This will give you an idea of what I mean:

*Rough, unexact copy of the intro of the game I'm basing this RP on*

1946:  Russia drops the first atomic bomb on Berlin, ending WW II

1952:  Britain reluctantly joins the Communist Block, the last European country to do so

1962:  The US protests the placement of medium ranged ballistic missiles in Cuba

1975:   Thousands of Russian military 'Advisors' are sent to several South American countries

1987:  Assassination attempt against the US president.  An unnamed foreign power is implicated

1998:  The Communist party wins the Mexican presidential election

Yesterday:  Hundreds of 'unidentified flying objects are reported from all over the US.  The military dismisses the sightings as weather balloons or hoaxes........

That's how the game starts. 

For our purposes, scratch the last line, as Werda Verd and myself feel it would be better to set this RP about 6 months to a year after New York has been occupied, giving us time to form our resistance, time for the front line of the outside war to move inland, and less experienced/disaplined troops to move into our sectors.

Any thoughts?  Suggestions? or character concepts?  Will post my character ASAP  *and no, A_A, he will not be named Ralin Drakus  tongue *
