Rise of the Rockets Front Post Overhaul

Posted by Parugi , in Rise of the Rockets Dec 02 2012 · 362 views

All right. So, for those who volunteered to help out with fixing/updating RotR's opening, I've given the front post some thought about what needs to be done. Just to begin with, here's what I think needs to be updated:
 
-The Introduction
It's really old. While it's fine for nostalgia's sake, all it does at this point is show the events leading up to the RPG, and does not really reflect anything that has happened recently--one might be led to assume that Operation RALLY is still the main starting point, when it's really not. So, we need something new.
 
What I need from you guys is ideas of what the new opening should be. I'm going to write it up in the same style as it is now--as if it's a post of its own--but I'm not sure what to showcase. Should I show a meeting between Buzz, Sleight, and Joker, discussing the loss of Bounty's portion of TR? Something with Ford and one or two of his agents, hinting at future plans? Throw some ideas out there.
 
-Misc. sections need to be removed/updated
Rereading several of the mechanics sections, I'm finding that a few of them are totally unneeded, partly because they are never used and partly because they don't apply anymore. Things like the Move Tutor section, the spot detailing "typeless" moves, stuff like that that no one pays attention to anymore--it needs to go. Possibly the familial relationship section, as I don't think it's an issue at this point.
 
Others need to simply be rewritten or updated, like the factions section and the achievement section.
 
-Story Summary
Tying into a reaaaallllly earlier post that I can't seem to locate, I think the RPG would benefit quite a bit from a large-scale summary of everything that has happened so far--from now to the beginning of the RPG, possibly starting from the most recent events and back-filling from there. Obviously, this is going to be a big project that will require a lot of help from RotR veterans.
 
Even so, it shouldn't be horribly difficult--I think we can get it done.
 
 
Branching off of this...
-Story in a Nutshell Section
What we remove from the introduction could probably be relocated here--giving back-story on the RPG while leaving room for new stuff. Just need to figure out how to go about that.
 
 
So yeah. Anyone who wishes to share their thoughts or opinions or questions, I would appreciate it. =)

I finally went through my inbox, managing to clear out seven of the twelve pages that had accumulated in there.
 
It's... rather surprising, the things you can find in a stack of PMs. Heck, there was stuff in there from 2009, 2010--before and immediately after RotR started! O.o
 
Shocking. But, it's all gone/condensed now, so it's all good--especially since I managed to find and save a bunch of older summaries for RotR plots that had been PMed to various people. ^_^

 
It also gave me some ideas of things that I can remove from RotR's front post--things that no longer apply/aren't used anymore. But, I'll elaborate more tomorrow.

So yeah. Now to go and post in RotR, check the BZPRPG, and then get to bed at last... See ya tomorrow, BZP!

RotR Front Post

It's soooo outdated.

Who wants to help me revise/update it?

Alternatively, give me ideas of what needs to happen with it here and I will work from that.

Surprise! I posted in RotR!

Also, in light of the Ballom MOC on the front page--I really do look forward to that undetermined point in the future where I'll have time to pick up MOC-buiilding again...

Huh... so apparently my 6-year-anniversary was three days ago and I didn't notice. Weird.

I suppose I should work on something special to post, then, eh? X3

Really need opinions here.

Posted by Parugi , in Rise of the Rockets Sep 29 2012 · 309 views

Is it time for RotR to bow out?

I'm looking for outsider perspectives here. The RPG for at least the last year or so--even around the beginning of the Manaphy Arc back in early 2010--has been struggling to stay active for long periods of time. Occasionally it'll get short bursts of energy where a ton of posts are made in a short period of time, but then it sinks again until something happens for another outburst of posts.

As much as I try to tell myself otherwise, it's virtually on its last leg, even despite people constantly saying that they think things are fine. I'm seriously starting to doubt it... =/
