Wrack's given me permission to run a Serial Numbers Filed Off version of IL, pretty much. Similar concept, no Lunarians or Yukari.

Well, mapmaking is going to be the hard part for me(I'm terrible with drawing, etc). Ideally I'd love to have a 3d map, but that's not happening, so basically it needs to be like IL's map.

In regards to the Halo RPG up for approval, I want to make a squad of Bullfrog-esque (jetpack using) ODSTs. But I don't want to manage so many characters, so if someone wants to go in halvesies with me I have ideas for three characters. Send me a PM and we can have ideas at one another. Edit: I just spotted a mild error in the Halo RPG. I'm pretty sure Zealots rank higher than Generals. Also the rank of Ultra is missing.

Generals are considered part of the overall Zealot "Archetype" of the covenant, more of an officers position than combat. And while they appear to be higher ranked, the common concensus is that Generals are field combat and Zealots are Special Operations - Generals rank higher. Easiest way to think it is the order you unlock stuff in reach - Zealot, Then General. Least that's just my take. Rank of ultra being gone... well there's lots of ranks missing. General, Field Marshal, etc etc... Better not to think too much Bunda.

General, Field Marshal, etc etc... Better not to think too much Bunda.

I'll have to look again at the ranks to ascertain things: I was in such a rush to get it up ahead of other RPGs that I didn't totally review the Ranks section in particular. However, Kini's assessment of Generals-V-Zealots is correct; there's a lot of confusion around the Zealot archetype that Bungie/343's set up, but we believe General is a higher ranking Zealot, while a Ship Master/Field Marshall are generally the highest up. Plus, Kini, Field Marshall IS in the rankings :P Concerning Ultra- I'll be sure to look into that. A lot of this is the exact same from the original Halo RPG, with appropriate additions made in the basic information of races/planets/ranks/vehicles/what have you. The only significant changes between this RPG and the original are the Plot, Setting, and a few of the Ex-Covenant races' standing in power and representation. Either way, as we go I'll be sure to clean that up ^_^

Well, my buddy who I was going to have cohost Concerto isn't responding when I try to contact him, so I'm going to start looking for a backup. If any of you are interested, drop me a PM . It's not going to be a first-come-first-serve kind of thing, it'd be based on how well I know you, what I've seen of your RPing capabilities, and your musical knowledge. The guy you're replacing was a buddy, ran two RPGs, and was as good if not a better musician than I am, so it's big shoes to fill, but I'm confident someone here can.

@xom: Since the corvettes/frigates cost 0.25 IPCs (Industrial Production Certificates, borrowing for Axis & Allies for sake of saving time/space), and are the only things that cost less than one, just require players to buy them in fours.@necro: for whatever reason it makes more sense to me than it used to. Also, second mention of th IHRF (5th paragraph), you said IHMF.

Um... On the subject of Restarting Interstellar Line (or at least, somethign similar) the only true complaint/hesitation i have in agreeing with it is... well, you Xom. I mean no offence when i say this, i just remember you not being quite so... agreeable to thing when Wrack was running things... It makes me hesitate, because i really havn't seen you RP since and from the few times i have you really havn't changed all that much. Just me throwing that out there - I'd gladly retract this opinion if you were planning or willing to have multiple helpers who're able to overrule things where they deem necessary - a sort of democratic system, if you will. Just my two cents.

I butted heads with him a lot, and normally I'd agree, but I'm willing to give him a shot with this - he's seemed a lot more mature, probably owing to it being literally years later, and since he's going to be sitting back running it instead of playing it, I don't really think he's going to have the chance to try and tear anyone's head off.

Xom is Dr. Robert, Interstellar Line is an old RPG that Xom's planning to bring back, And Wrack was it's GM. However, i wouldn't say the RPG is doomed... just more... in danger. Besides it's hard to comment on something like that when even i must admit that it was a long time ago.

I had the same reservations myself, actually, which was why I initially held off on putting this together. Who'd be willing to help me run this/keep me from going crazy?

I'm glad that you're at least willing to admit it this time around =P

I butted heads with him a lot, and normally I'd agree, but I'm willing to give him a shot with this - he's seemed a lot more mature, probably owing to it being literally years later, and since he's going to be sitting back running it instead of playing it, I don't really think he's going to have the chance to try and tear anyone's head off.

For myself, while i can see he's matured simply due to the fact that he's admitted that there was a problem... I think my problem was back then, even with my limited involvement with IL, he went against every single one of the (rare) Rulings that Wrack made, or at the very least, argued them and the other points or problems players brought up, unnecessarily. I also recall him being quite the... egomaniac - and i don't use that word lightly. That's the main problem i have. Put him in a position where he's not in control, and he'll argue it. Put him in a position where he is... Unless i'm proven wrong, i shudder to think what may happen. Sorry Xom, but it's the truth :/ Of course, it's also from what i remember.

Honestly, I was hoping to play it. My plan for this is get the setting and rules set up, start playing it, hope it goes without needing rulings. Your confidence is reassuring, everyone. Sure, the Telepath RPG from right before The Fall was terrible, but I GMed it well...

If I wasnt going to be a main staffie in Vak's RPG, I would Volunteer on helping you keep yer sanity, Xom' :P I -may- be able to help with a map; although expierience has shown me drawings usually dont serve as well as photographs as far as galaxies n' such, so I could maybe whip something decent up using Pictures off of Google Space or somethin` like that xD I dunno if i`d join the RPG itself; I would have to wait a bit to see if i have the time, to see how busy your RPG turns out, and to see if I like your style of GM'ing ^^ --Akaku: Master of Flight

I never thought the problem with IL was any single member, but rather the lack of control. If things got a bit out of hand there was no ultimate authority figure stepping in to say 'no this is wrong' or to mediate. So really we're all to blame

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.

Your, sir, have scored yourself one of the best Co-Hosts I've ever had ^_^ Necro and Spink have both done some incredible work with me, and I fully endorse Necro's partnering up with you :3

Considering I just plain can't work with Spink, this is perfect. Anyway, I'm pretty much waiting on the map now, since I seem to have everything else I need.

Xom, I have but one thing to say regarding IL mark II. If you actually manage to pull it off, it'll be awesome. If you don't and we get ToA-style gmodding, well, that's not going be fun for anyone except ToA. So yeah. I want to totally get a species that is some utterly horrible Lovecraftian monster who communicate with other species via hologram. Also, give me a week and I'll make up an epic looking star map. Also, if we should, say, attempt to make our ships realistic, can there be something in there that encourages that instead of 'har har you're such a nerd you tried to make it realistic and now I can curbstomp you with MY SCI-FI DOOM LASERS.' Because I want ships that are like real life naval ships; massive, expensive, but can take a ton of hits and dish out punishment. And you might want to put something in there about build time.

Wouldn't mind this, assuming you don't go for the hyper-realistic stuff that takes the fun out of it. Also yes build times. Also what amount of weaponry is reasonable on what sizes?

Come to think of it, Lovecraftian monsters would be a poor choice for diplomacy. Ugly people find it hard to make friends; Lovecraftian horrors typically have no friends. So yeah, my only suggestions are build times and semi-realism. Oh, and something about technology development; with the Sryjassa I had them making civilization changing breakthroughs on a daily basis, something that isn't that realistic but also kinda required when everyone else is doing the same. And something for newbs; like, some way so they don't get completely destroyed/turned to slaves by the elder races.

The worlds have now learned

Of the worst yet to come

On the brink of an end, a Boy learns to crawl

{/BZPRPG Profiles\}  :.: {/COMIC: Eljay: The Becoming\} :.: {/EPIC: Danger Close\} :.: {/EPIC: Wings\}

[There is Invisible Text here]
Cause I can't find a banner ;_;

{/Seven Lives, Two Faces\}

Don't pass up this chance, oh go tear down the walls

No gods will watching, no one cares enough at all

These worlds need now an ending, as they did at the start

But I'll keep on pretending, I won't

Go...

How realistic are we talking when we say semi-realism? I know that when we threw it out the window for the sake of entertainment, we got insane in the old RPG, but I don't want to go from one extreme to the other - it was just as bad in the beginning when everything needed a completely factual, scientific basis and anything that relied even the slightest bit on player imagination was cut down in a heartbeat as it was later on when we had asteroid belts turned minefields and ships the size of planets.

Okay, if you're familiar with the Halo series, the humans from that are a good guide of the tech level I want. Railguns, missiles, typical projectile weapons, lasers, and the like. Except no energy shields in here. Naturally as time goes on, the technology will slowly advance, but we'll never even approach the tech level IL ended at, when there were Dyson Spheres, Tachyon Guns, stuff like that. Working on a a weapon size guide... Adding something about build times...
