I know, this with the plan sounds interesting but would take lots of time to work it out....
Heh...Vincent, what did you do with Atrum's siggy? xD
I borrowed it without his permission it
oh can I have a generl idea of how you'd like your game. I'm really interested in hearing it
Ohh!....and I always thought Atrum was female...o.O (because of the PINK siggy....xD)
I only have a rough idea. Everyone is on a ship (on the high seas), there are some roles...and it's basically a Mafia-game. Something like a gang of robbers on flight. And the others are a bunch of curious passengers. And curiosity kills the cat xD .....only rough idea, I have to think though it anyway.
Haven't thought of a format yet. There's a game that uses the steam engine called "the ship" basically you're on a ship, and you have to kill someone, but someone else is on your tail. I don't know how to make it possible, maybe just give out random clues.

ex; There are three doors, and you must choose one. Or three chests, and you can open only one. If there's a monster, you can either fight it, ignore it, or do some other random thing (maybe sacrifice someone, Idk, we make it up as we go lol).
We can also include items; ie; survival for the next xx hours, use random that org to kill a person, use the Mod to kill a person, kill everyone who doesn't post in the next xx hours. Maybe we can include a shopping system or something.
Ah, you mean CYOA-format? I like such games...it's just that you have to think of lots of possibilities to make it interesting^^
Ya, when I was younger I read a couple of those books. Then around grade five, we used to make them ourselves, just lame drawings, and a few options, usually only one would make you go on. Was fun a long time ago...
I've read those books! I remember that book about atlantis. I ended up locked up and was treated as an animal in a zoo. >_<
I like it but if we are going to make one. It would be very complicated. It's best to limit the number of players in the early games so that we could easily control it.
Lol, it won't be that hard, there will only be one plot. You either win, or you die lol.
(how about we use this for discussion, rather than making a new thread?)
Ok, what I'm thinking for now is for a group of people to start out in the dungeon. There's a hidden treasure down there, and everyone wants it for himself. You can lynch anyone in the game, but if you do, you can get lynched yourself by other people.
We might add some items to make the game more fun. A random.org item, that might by used for killing/or giving items. (the user who uses it might get himself killed lol). I might ask questions, and the people who give me the wrong answer might die/have hp reduced (so if they miss more than one they die). We can add puzzles/questions/riddles, we might also have bizzare requests by mods such as "the person who will not write a haiku today will be slain. anyone who copies someone else will also be slain" (maybe a mod summoning item).
Basically I want to make it a fast paced surviving game. We can also add a "guardian" role, basically he's a monster that lived in the cage for a very long time, and he wants to protect his treasure. He can take the form of a human.
If anyone would like to cohost this thing with me, then please do, we need more people for ideas, stories etc.
Hm...I might have ideas for stories and such...and options of what door to chose and such things (I like these CYOA-games xD)
This idea with a dungeon is good...even with or without map. We also could give some directories/advices now and then...and some false ones as well. Then it's up to the player whether he believes them or not.
What I'm thinking, is to like make a group of players, all moving together. There are always options for them to take, the ones who takes the wrong one usually die. So it's kinda like an elimination game. If we make every individual player have a different story, it'll be to confusing.
