I think proper werewolves should be done Warren Zevon style. You know, like that hairy-handed gent who ran amok in Kent. Lately he's been overheard in Mayfair.But, hrmm, yes, werewolves definitely shouldn't just turn into proper wolves, they should end up somewhere halfway. Like in The Fly (Jeff Goldblum version), but, you know, a wolf flew into the teleporter pod instead of a fly. Wolves fly, right?

Problem is there've been so many different kinds of werewolves throughout the years and cultures that there is no 'proper' kind. If you wanted different options, why not have different species of werewolves? I think they did that on Angel to explain why some were quadrupedal and others were bipedal. Or that the shapeshifting has different rules depending on what tribe/culture/pack you come from

Soon the earth will no longer be habitable for any biological organism: Man, woman, child, plant, animal, fungus or bacterium. All life will cease to exist. This is not a threat, there is nothing you can do to stop it. The process has already begun. I receive no pleasure in this, it is simply the only solution. There must be peace and order, the end of life on earth will ensure that. Goodbye.

Aye, putting on the skins of animals, doing drugs, and acting generally crazy, usually on the battlefield, seems to be a time honored tradition amongst us humans. Even the Aztecs did it! ...with human skin. So replace drugs here with mythical folklore and hey my guy in a bear skin suddenly is a bit more like the animal he's attempting to impersonate.

'When I wear this skin into battle, I will become... a wereperson!'Oh Aztecs, you so crazy.But yeah, that would work, I think, for a bear, though not so much for a wereturkey. Their skins are kind of smallish.

Yeah, I was actually planning Berserkers as shape-shifters with a bear specialization.And we'll also have fey/leprechauns, if I get my way. :PI just think that's its very likely any large, powerful, nocturnal, and unknown creature could, in the ancient world, be compared to a wolf. I don't really want werewolves to just turn into wolves. That's shapeshifters. :P

This is for the purpose of dragging something that initially stated itself to be a Twilight RPG kicking and screaming into the light of reason.And, ToA, there's a difference between a shapeshifter that turns into a wolf, and a werewolf. One turns into a wolf, the other turns into something about halfway between a wolf and a human.

Alright fine, wolf/man mix. :P But I'm not putting in other were-creatures. They can be shapeshifters.Well, faeries is closer to what I had in mind. As in a Midsummer Night's Dream style. They'll just be referred to as Leprechauns in the Celtic lands.I'm thinking this will be quite a good RPG.

Also Koth wants to know if kitsune can be involved here.For those who don't know kitsune are a Japanese myth involving foxes that turn into humans. Not humans into foxes mind you, foxes into humans.Ok he didn't actually want to know but I think they're cool and he was talking about them.

That's what I was thinking myself. Ultimately Twilight is a romance of questionable quality with supernatural elements thrown in. This has the supernatural elements in the foreground and no romance, because COTRPGs have never done wonders in the romance section. It's not really a Twilight RPG anymore because, well, not much of a universe left once you strip out the romance and most of the vampire-werewolf canon.

^Yes to that.And we'll be in the Roman Empire- not kitsunes. :PAlso, I'm going to use Faerie as a catch all for nymphs, leprechauns, etc. I'll type up my basic idea later.Also, to make vampires more killable- their bodies behave as if made of very hard stone(clubs are great), except concerning iron. They react to iron as any normal human would. So an iron sword can kill, just make sure you do something with it that will kill them. Like beheading. Not stabbing in the gut.And always follow with a good bonfire. :P

Would say, cutting up a vampire with an iron sword and then feasting on the resulting flesh chunks kill them?I ask because it's Rome and with the crazies they put in charge something like this is going to happen.

Hmm, so no way to fit some Aztec insanity into this.Ah well, I'm sure my Swedish barbarian will work.Also when I heard the 'make sure it'll kill them' bit I immediately thought of this line."So will a stake through the heart kill you?""Yeah, who wouldn't it?"Also what time period? The Roman Republic or the Roman Empire? Both lasted centuries, and had very different periods. I'd say Augustus' reign but I'm a bit of an Augustus fanboy.

Huh. Well, that might turn you into one- get the venom in your body. Alright so we've got:-Vampires-Werewolves-Shapeshifters(Kelpies, Berserkers, Gallic tribes, Egyptian god-posers)-Magic-Faeries-Undead from Egypt?I think mermen can be mentioned, perhaps encountered, but I don't see anyone playing as one going over well.Anything else? I'm open to some kind of demon creature, and perhaps angel stand-ins from Palestine.Alex: I was thinking Empire.Power: I plan to make the two rivals of sorts. Though true faeries won't be appearing... These will be closer to half-humans. Not directly though.

How about not making it a great big monster mash from the get go? Why not just start with shapeshifters and vampires then either deal with others on a case by case basis or bring them in later. Just seems that by throwing everything in immediately you make things a bit overly cluttered

Oh, the Faeries won't be clearly good. Imagine this- they hate vampires, they'll keep you safe, but they steal children for entertainment and give them back when, if ever, they feel like it. They live absurdly long lives and no one controls them. They see humans as inferior. If you live in Ireland or another place they're in charge, you lie low or they will kill you without a second thought. Probably laugh at it.Vampires don't want to be in charge, usually the ones that do basically let you do whatever as long as they're kept fed.I'd like to keep this pre-Christianity- helps keep existing religion out and keeps things simpler.

"Shall this great kingdom, that has survived, whole and entire, the Danish depredations, the Scottish inroads, and the Norman conquest; that has stood the threatened invasion of the Spanish Armada, now fall prostrate before the House of Bourbon? Surely, my Lords, this nation is no longer what it was! Shall a people, that seventeen years ago was the terror of the world, now stoop so low as to tell its ancient inveterate enemy, take all we have, only give us peace? It is impossible! ...My Lords, any state is better than despair. Let us at least make one effort; and if we must fall, let us fall like men!"
 
-William Pitt the Elder, before suffering a fatal stroke on the floor of the House of Lords.

In Division related news, I'm burnt out on building it for multiple reasons, but the biggest is the race biology and history. I'm just tired of it. If anyone wants to help with that...Oh, and Toast: I'd be willing to staff it, but I think I'm cohosting too much already.

I'm pretty busy with college. I don't know if I could handle cohosting on top of hosting my own RP.

If no one else will do it, I will.I've got the disease that makes me want to make new things and not work on the old.

I'd be willing to co-host, seeing as I'm currently running through the seventh draft of The Outer Worlds and still counting.

So... I've been kicking around the idea of creating a Final Fantasy VII based RPG, set some time during the beginning of the Wutai war, making the RPG SOLDIER-centric. Any word on how well you guys think that would go over?
