    Recapitulation of the first replies...

    And I donŽt think weŽll gather 20 (Active)members...
    I will agree with majority on what kind of setting we wanna play... If most people would like to play a Fantasy or a Mafia RPG then I'm alright with it...
    Imo, if we have more than 10 players we should install a second gamemaster and form two teams...

    2) Don't you think we should set parameters for activity in the game? Otherwise, considering the scale of this game, we could end up with a game that never ends or goes dead because a number of players are no longer active in it?

    I'd like to play either future or fantasy, or a mix.
    Imo, we should make it like our Gantz RPG. Everyone should post his storyline before the gamemaster makes the next steps.
    But there should be time limit in which everyone has to send in their replies on the RPG, like three days maybe before it's gonna be another turn... That would be fair enough for the player and the others...
    The gamemaster then has to decide upon the fate of characters that didn't act in time...

    I'm interested in playing btw ^^
    You can read into The Off-Topic Crew's Gantz RP...
    I think it's the best to make it as easy as that one... Only the gamemaster uses a dice and the players just write up their actions, thoughts and dialogues...

    Well, we had a map for our Gantz PRG, but officially we wanted to play only for three weeks... We have to put it up straight to keep in time on this game...

    I checked all the Forum Games threads for RPG elements and saw that 60% of the threads here are mafia... So I guess, most members would like to play a mafia RPG like I suggested... Of course the setting could differ...

    So, Im just gonna lurk this thread to see what points/rules etc. people come up with ^_^;
    Cause I have no idea how this works. Gonna check out the link sakura gave btw.
    Just read into the Off-Topic RPG, it's easy as cake... MGB is the gamemaster...
    You can read how to write a character sheet from here...
    Of course, there have to be game specific character sheets then, with different abilities, weapons and background...

    I know we're gonna use random.org for the dice.
    but I also think there's also website which can randomly generate dungeons.
    I think it would be cool to get at least 5 members, that's just the essential number of players...
    You can still discuss about how you wanna play: Easy would be that the gamemaster only has a dice deciding about fate and future... And how the storyline continues...
    I know a site that generates those multi D&D dices but that would make everything more complicated... If I'm gonna be the gamemaster then I'll come up with a map...But that will take some time...


    Alright, don't forget to suggest the setting for the RPG... Please come up with whatever crosses your mind... We have time till 1st february, but if we start earlier it would be ok too... I think we have already six potential players plus me, would be cool if we get more...

    ^I usually stay away from RPs because you have no idea who you're gonna end up posting with, and once it's started, you're committed until the end. Well, considering the gantz RP is on standby and i seem to have lost interest in posting on gantz, I guess i could do this.
    Just one thing i'd like to add - if you target duration is three months, then a three days threshold could leave us in the absurd situation where we get only ten turns in 30 days. There has to be more rules (killing absent players, for example) set out from the start regarding what happens in the event someone does not post. The bigger the RP, the more unfair it is for remaining players if someone gets lazy on updating his post. We also need rules on editing, and adding to background history post-hoc, and so forth.

    I’m willing to help out if you need a hand.

    I’m putting my weight behind a futuristic setting, as those generally offer a more compelling experience. (I’m not against a fantasy setting, but they usually get dull rather quickly.) But I’m okay with anything, really.

    Hey, it’s not my fault he hasn‘t been around lately. I told him that we’re waiting on him to make his move, but it's like he doesn't care. I’m kind of to the point now where I think I might kill off his character (though it probably wouldn't be worth it, since we're almost done). Besides, I'd likely use an NPC’s points to revive him at the end of the mission anyway (if I do kill him, this is), so it’s not as if his character would be gone forever.

    Considering this is the first time a lot of us, including me will be playing an RPG. This means that it's going to be a bloodbath.

    What are we supposed to do with our character's history? Are we supposed to come up with a whole history, or just a few lines?

    I imagine morten will change up the character sheets a bit (to better suit this RP’s setting), but from my understanding he wants them to be something like this, and they should be written with a great deal of care. Remember, the information you provide will determine what happens to you in the long run (in shaping your character's development and such).

    Edit: Don't worry, it's not all that complicated, really.

    Whoa, this looks like a bit of an investment in time then. It also looks like it would have to run pretty damned slowly if you wanted to make sure that everyone was getting their turns and stuff.

    On Speed Issues: A merciless turn system can overcome that - next turn being set at a fixed 24 hour/48 hour/xx hour. Everyone who gets in will know about that rule, so it's not "unfair" on anyone if he "fails" to post within that time frame for any reason.
    On Setting: I am for futuristic. More room to "make" our own world, even though i'd go cyberpunk, if i had any choice on the matter. If you wanna play a "fantasy-ish" char, vamp or elf, or whatnot, we can always chalk it off to genetic manipulation, or something.
    @MGB: Our RP was a small family thing to begin with. I don't mind Popo taking his time to post. The "BOO" was just about me getting out of the gantz sub.
