ST RPG: System vs. Factory - Rules and OOC Chat
RULES AND GAMEPLAY INFORMATION:
The RPG rules:
You post your actions, I will decide your consequences by the dice...
Post1, Location1, Action: A attempts to poison B's drink in a nightclub.
Post2, Location2, Action: C tries to run from monster.
(For whatever reason, Mort has yet to post results of actions, and you're itching to make a post)
Post3, Location1, Description: The DJ was inspired that night. The music blasting off the loud speakers had almost everybody on the dance floor. Would B fall for it?
BTW, you don't have to specifically write "A tries to do this". It can be in the form
That was it. A could no longer take the noise. He picked up his phone and called the police."
However, since this is dice based, make sure you limit yourself to only one "action" at a time, and, if the action is "hidden" in some convoluted narrative, just put an extra line in the form
Action: A tries to do this.
This is a Mafia RPG but lynching is not possible... But you can group up against one member of the other side and try to kill him...
Example : F1 belongs to Factory and teams up with S, who belongs to System. They both attack F2 who belongs to Factory. F1 uses weapons on F2.
Who dies? F2
Also random killing is forbidden (NPC and Players). The militia will come for you if you randomly start a bloodbath... Then you have no other choice but flee... And you have to change from legal job to illegal job...
In the beginning there is an independant seer (as well as shaman and witch) who you can pay for. But the information cost money and depends on the dice (1-6). Later, the Cyclop can gain seer abilities with his Special ability...
Each side will have equal players. That means if we have 12 players there will be six on the System side (townies) and six on the Factory side (mafia). But none side has advantages over the other... And no one knows each others side in the beginning...
To defeat a dragon you need three persons, that's right. But you can pay independant mercenaries (which lower your chance) or team up with members of your side on every quest with enemies that need more than one person...
As Ziazca mentioned the old mafia rule is intact that you can fool others about your role. So you can team up with System agents though you're in reality a Factory agent... Until they find out... ANd of course, that's a very dangerous game...
Of course you can communicate in a normal way, like saying 'Hello' to each other and so on... Only if you want to ask the other one about his side (you wisper him into the ear, lol) then it will be through PM... Every other dialogue is open to everyone...
And don't worry, I'll spend some hours since I got nothing special to do right now... Just writing some stuff...
You can lie of course, but I won't reveal your roles. I'm independent and won't tell if you lie... If someone is revealed by anyone, I will mention it at the beginning of each round like in the Mafia game... Of course, you can openly say that 'Person A' is a System agent and then let the others investigate... That's a possibility, too...
Private conference and telephone talk:
Normal conversations can be seen by anyone, written on the board...
If Player A meets Player B for the first time and wants to know what side he's on, he writes me a PM, like this for example:
Quote:Originally Posted by Player A
Hey, I would like to know if you're system or factory.
I'll post this quote to Player B... Then he can reply to Player B by sending another conversation...
Quote:Originally Posted by Player B
I tell you if you do this and this for trust.
After both know each other (or not), Player A can reveal Player B's identity when he meets Player C, and so on... Until everyone knows the position of each other...
The apartment will depend on the job you chose... And you will find some items in that apartment too... Btw, you can heal yourself by five health points for each night of sleep in your apartment...
I will tell tomorrow about items and weapons, but not all because some will stay a secret till you find them...
Everything will be decided by the gamemasters dice:
1 - fail
2 - unlucky
3 - close
4 - effective
5 - lucky
6 - epic win
Character Board Images
Every character has 100 Lifepoints aka 100% Health...

The legal jobs give you regular money and it's safe, but you won't earn that much.
The illegal jobs will get you more money (if you are lucky), but you have to look out for the danger that come within.
You don't need to make those jobs, they will be automatically and only place you into the environment. But each job offers little side-quests for extra money you can attend to or not...
Example: Player A is a detective. At the end of each round he will get his regular money without doing anything. But if he takes a side-quest he can earn something extra.
Player B is a drug dealer. He depends on the dice. At the end of each round the dice will rule how much he earned and if the police or other criminals are after them.
And he can play side-quests too to earn extra...
- Gogo Dancer
- Street worker
- Bounty Hunter
- Drug Dealer
- Pocket Thief
- Black Market Salesman
- Gang member
Every job will run automatically, you don't need to fullfill them only side-quests if you want.
At the end of each round you will receive auto money, the illegal jobs depend on the dice but will receive more than the legal if lucky...
The currency is called credit. The standard is 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 credit. The bigger the enemy the more credit, up to 10 000 credit...
You can pay cash or with your creditkey. You can upload infinite money on your creditkey and it's protected but you need to do at in a bank. When you run around with cash money you can be robbed and then lose all. That is a risk...
As said there will be some categories of enemies.
NPC enemies and Ghouls: Can be everything, divided in three classes.
Easy: Ratdigger the Streetrobber comes with a knife and a weak pistol. You can kill him as rookie
Normal: Golgot the Killerelf comes with a MP and a sword. You need to upgrade with bigger weapons and armour to kill this one. Or you team up.
Hard: Brutalkowski the Trollvampire Mutant comes with a Gatling Gun and Chainsaw. You need to be pro to kill him or several team members.
The fighting options: Attack Defend Item Run. You have to specifically write your actions btw... Of course you can talk during fights...
You can either rent a mercenary that will accompany for several hours (1-6) and that will be as strong as much as he/she costs... Or you can team up with a member player that you found out belongs to your side...
Monsters, Robots, Gargoyles and Players of the Other Side: You need at least two players to kill one od these.
Dragons: You need at least three players to kill them.
