    hmm... I'm confused already and the game hasn't even started yet... I'll stay out of this game and just watch from the sidelines, It'd may be easier to understand th game by watching one 1st. *Shrugs*... that and it appears it migth be time consuming... and I need that time to play Persona 4... that and summer school lol.

    I'm also wondering whether I have to time to dedicate to this. I'd rather not play, than join the game and never post. I reckon the game should start over a weekend, like the Survivor games, to really get the thing going. I suppose turns for people would put a stop to all the confused posting that we get in the Survivors.

    ^ Oh come ON! You guya are already pretty active. Especially knite there. You wanna watch "from the sidelines" for a MONTH or two? Takes you that much to understand it?
    You'll get it along the way, no worries.

    Don't chicken out.

    hmm, that depends how many players will be allowed on the first game...
    if there really are just 5 to 10 players this game might not take to long...
    it sounds pretty interesting, but in never did something like that before, so watching it might be a good option...

    @ Sakura : So I suppose YOUŽRE gona play Sakura-neechan ^^

    IŽm in,whatever scenario you guys wanna play in.Hope IŽll have enough inspiration to not do only one-liners -.-"
    And of course some one should a list of rules,like "no God mode" and so on (it can sound somewhat logical,but for first-timers it couldnŽt be so obvious...)

    Actually, I think I'll sit this one out too. I frankly can't promise I'll be able to stay attuned to a game that is as long as a month or more (this isn't the summer...). This game requires either or both of the following to work well:
    1) Players who are really active during the game, allowing the game to move quickly and with few hitches.
    2) Players who can keep up a more flexible but longer commitment where people play their turns in the span of a few days as mort suggested.

    I think that most of the regulars in this section know that we can't pull of #2 on the list when a week or 2 is our threshold for committing to any games here. Look at our history for mafia to support that.

    As for #1, it is much harder to pull off with a large number of people. And by large I mean 7+ people.

    Also, the 20 person goal is a stretch considering the max number of people we've had participate in a forum game lately is 16.

    ^But if itŽll be entertaining enough perhaps weŽll get more people to be committed to it xD

    And I agree about the members,there should be only around 10 (who are also active...)

    All those replies seem to think that I'll take the place of the gamemaster and will generate the game... I thought about this yesterday and I think I will take over the gamemaster's place... Since people would like to play either Fantasy or a Future RP, I thought of combining both... I will post you my concept soon and then we can talk about the rules and the necessary character abilities...

    now we need to know how we can stretch the game play in to a month time instead of what we have with
    a week with mafia
    I generated a stansard dungeon and that already looks complicated... My idea would be a more open setting like a town but thank you for showing me this...

    Maybe there should be some kind of a map in every event you make, so we can explore it :P
    Yes, I think it will be more fun to have fantasy elements like Orks, Elfs and Dragons within. But I would like to combine that with Mafia too...

    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.
    Wow, your third post outside of the Gantz sub. Seems you eager to play an RPG again...
    I though about the three day turns. I think everyone can post as much as he wants in three days and I as the gamemaster will reply to their actions. At the end of the day all those actions will be summed up and transported into the next turn (aka thread). Everyone who didn't post anything will be judged through the dice and will either killed or lives on... Of course, people can send me PM's then they''re not active and I'll take other their characters in waiting positions and maybe use them as NPC'S (Non Player Character) during that time...
    That we way wenot depend on lazy players (like Popo)...

    Btw, I also think that some parts like the communication between members who want find out what role they're in, should be made by PM not openly, so the others don't find out...
    In that case, the pm's will be read by only three people (Me and the ones who come up with the conpiracy talk)... But we can talk about that in the rules discussion...

    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.
    Thanks dude. I think if we have more then ten players it will too much for one gamemaster and we split it up or work together...
    I think a future setting is more interesting and has more possibilities then a fantasy setting, too...
    But of course we can play a fantasy RPG later after this one, with dungeons and stuff...

    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?
    It depends on you how much you write on your characters sheet. Only 5 sentences are a novel, it's not that important. But you have to play your role and keep into that...

    I'll play.

    Mafia RPG would be fun. STEAMPUNK Mafia RPG would be freakin' awesome.
    Why don't you like us OT people? (:
    But thanks for being on-board...

    Edit: Don't worry, it's not all that complicated, really.
    Yes, it's not as complicated as it looks. You dn't need to write so much about your char...
    We'll talk about the abilities a character needs when we discuss the rules for the game...

    As said you can PM me if you wanna time-out or if you wanna die because you don't have time anymore...

    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
    Seconded. I think I will brin in Fantasy characters that people can play too... Not just human but elfs, trolls, vampires and were-wolfes to make it more fun...

    Give it a try. I will be merciful (in the beginning) and it will be a text rpg only. No big math or experience points collection...

    As said. Try it out or you will regret it...

    Trying it out will be a far better option imo... And you can check out everytime you want to...

    Yes, we can discuss the rules in the next turn after I reveal my concept for the game and you accept it or not... I want all people who will participate to work on the rules too and maybe come up with new rules during the game if it's necessary... We can use this thread as OOPC (Out of play chat) then...

    Seconded. But I really wanna see you in the game too.
    I think that with more people participating the game will be much faster. Some will maybe post three or four times a day and some others once in three days (or none). As lively the RPG is as better it will be and as more fun we'll have with it...
