Well. That was a bigger response than I'd expected.

 

Guess I'll have to get cracking on that then. Though I'd got other projects lined up...eh, I'll keep you all posted.

Hi everyone! Just dropping in to say that I have fixed the first post a bit, since it ended up smashed together after being left alone for a few years. On that note, if there's anything that needs to be added to it, feel free to send it to me and I'll likely put it in (namely important threads, or updates that have taken place [Getting these over the weekend would probably be best]). 

 

Sort of an "in the moment" edit, so I didn't actually update the text itself and only organized it so it's actually legible.

While I would have interest in one done well, it's not something I think that would translate well into a BZPower styled game. I've seen a few of them elsewhere, but they all largely rely on one thing; Throwing the idea of "overpowered" and "realism" out the window. Historically, that doesn't really work well here. Without a consistent level of allowable power, and a way of knowing when someone is godmodding, things tend to go south as soon as there's a PvP fight.

 

Even beyond that, anyone attempting to make one would have to drum up a playerbase (Which, as a relatively obscure media, doesn't have a large number of fans here, let alone fans who also play RPGs) as well as find a way to flesh the world and mechanics out enough to make it work.

Another thing to add is that its far too pre-mature to make an RPG in the RWBY-verse. The main issue being that we just don't know enough about the world to accurately play in it. There are far too many fundamental details we just don't know so it'd be very difficult to properly create an RPG.

Doing some basic work on my RPG concept-races I can confirm:

 

Elves

Vampires

Demons

Werewolves

Wraith

 

Races I am considering:

 

Orcs

Goblins

 

Trying to decide just how big of a setting I want really.

I'd advise that you keep it pretty compact and streamlined; in all honesty, we don't really have the playerbase for anything too wide-lensed and sprawling. Choose a specific plot/storyline concept focus point, and stick to it. I've found that, in general, it's the 'lean and mean'-type RPGs that tend to survive the best.

 

Also, I'm slightly unsure as to what exactly would grant 'vampires/werewolves/wraiths' true 'race' status. I mean, for example, humans are humans... but some humans are also werewolves. Human/elf/orc/etc. = species. Werewolf/vampire/wraith = condition/affliction. Right? Or was there never any confusion about that on your part, and I'm just misreading your post? :wakeup:

Might work better as a story then, I suppose. I like the world-building that tends to go into these things.

Well, of course, I too enjoy worldbuilding... very much so, actually. I guess what I'm trying to say is, I'd suggest you don't open up miles and miles of vast game world. Keep the focus to, say, a particular realm or area within the greater world, so as to limit... I'm not sure what the exact term is. Player scattered-ness? Too great of an NPC-to-PC ratio?

I think the name of the game here is, "Don't try to make Skyrim: The TBRPG."

 

I'm still completely advocating the idea from a few pages back of just short term RPGs meant to let players go through a short scenario, more like an adventure than anything else.

 

To throw in a suggestion on the races - perhaps it may be prudent to have a "Descendants of Man" section, and a "Creatures of Fantasy" section. One to place the changed descendants of man, the other to place the fantastical elves, orcs, etc. Amusingly, I would also advocate keeping the horrible creatures most confined to the former, with more whimsical ones being in the latter. Better still would be executing that and only allowing the once-humans to be played; you, the player, the monster. [/endstreamofconscious]

More and more this is looking like something a story would be suited for then, I suppose. When I design a setting, I tend to design everything about the setting, even things we don't end up seeing. We're talking about tectonic plate movements, the tides, what the rest of the star system looks like....

Depends on how closely related the races are. If elves are human offshoots or vice versa, I could see some hybrids. Orcs and Goblins are probably too genetically distinct for such unions to be viable.

I've spent the last couple of weeks either getting repeatedly kicked in the face by English 2 or on pain medication.

I have two RPGs I'm currently building, but with any luck I will finish Twisted soon.

Sorry again.

Just testing the waters a bit, I promise I'll go back to the forums in which I belong soon.

 

Before I do, though, I was curious as to whether there's any respectable amount of interest in a Star Trek RPG at all?  Not particularly right at this moment, or even within the month, but just as a gauge for me to see if anyone would hypothetically join should one ever hypothetically pop up sometime in the hypothetical future.

 

If not, I'll drop the concept and go back to attempting to actually stay active in an OTCRPG for once.

Regarding my RPG idea, consider it canned. I've decided if I ever do anything with it, it'll be as a story. The modifications suggested to the idea would turn it into something else, something I wouldn't very much enjoy hosting.

Aye, the setup of the shows could be both conductive to and somewhat destructive to an RPG setting.

 

I do have several ideas for different mechanics that may add some variety to the RPG as a whole, as well as some general settings that it may take place in.  I would be more than happy to explain a couple which really seem like they'd work, if anyone is interested.  However, like I stated above, I'm not really going to be putting anything down for the RPG itself unless it's really demanded.

Who here would be interested in a Fire Emblem RPG (basically medieval-esque fantasy)? Due to the setting of the story(ies), I think it could be reasonably pulled off. I have a basic plot idea already but I just wanted to test the waters first.

There's Manaketes (men-dragons), some men-cats/birds/wolves/rabbits depending on the continuity, and there are dark mages, alongside nature mages and light mages. Not exactly what you're implying, but we can find something.

Plus there is a Necromancer class that summons a phantom to fight for him. And offensive Dark Magic + Healing Staves. Though that depends on how you want to model the classes.

 

EDIT: Technically that one (From FE8) is called Summoner. There is also a Necromancer class but it's just the penultimate boss' class that knows all the kinds of magic.

So, I've been thinking about giving a Transformers RPG a third shot. It's been quite a while so hopefully I've changed enough to manage it better.

 

If I do this, it'll be between WFC and FOC. Since, you know, the amount of time between each game was never specified and the Ark is under construction, I figured that'd be a viable setting.

 

Any takers?

Less considering and more already having unofficially instituted it; last I checked, it's the opinion of me, Basilisk, Tyler, and Adders, that a Transformers RPG will not fly unless we are shown substantial reason as to why it will work. The idea has gone up before, only to crash and burn (three times btw, so this will be the fourth), so it isn't getting by without a large amount of community support.

Okay, so I have been recently reading Watchmen, and I had an idea for an RPG. I probably wouldn't be able to host it, but if someone else could pick it up, that would be good.

 

It would be a standard hero/villain, comic book type RPG. The catch is that no one has superpowers - you are all normal people.

I used to have a banner here.

 

But that RPG is dead.

 

What now?

Sounds like it could be cool.

 

Anyway I've been watching the original Digimon series on Netflix lately and I know we already had one Digimon RP that failed but I'm pretty sure that's because the GM wasn't active enough and never progressed the plot, if I remember it was pretty active at first.

 

I think I could handle running such a game I have a lot of ideas for the plot and whatnot, I was going to intervene and progress the last Digimon RP myself since I was co-GM but everytime I was about to the original GM would show up and then vanish again.

 

Just trying to see if people are still interested or not.
