Topic: We need a game/sim!

With things moving forward, I would like those of us still standing to ponder over what type of game we would all like to participate in. Our numbers may be small, but I know we can come up with something that would be of interest. So.... I am going to start with genre's (and sims) that interest me the most.

Supernatural
Firefly
Battlestar Galaticia
Pacific Rim
The Walking Dead (Zombies)

I am sure there are more!

Re: We need a game/sim!

I too love (1980's) Battlestar Galactica and Pacific Rim, I just foresee numbers being an issue. By the time you fill out a Battlestar complement (similar to Star Trek or any other), you need a lot of players involved which I don't think we'd have. I think the two person per mech requirement in the previous Pacific Rim is what caused it's downfall, but could be wrong, I started here just as that was dying but I considered joining it.

Zombies (Z Nation or Romero zombies, maybe 28 Days Later) would be awesome, I never got to join one of those here but wanted to.

I'd love to see a re-do of the previous Aliens sim, myself. Was sad to see that go so soon.

Middle Earth is also an interest of mine. Lovecraft and Poe (horror'esque) as well, but that didn't seem to work here.

A medieval times one of knights and dragons one could be neat, just depending on storyline. Most overall story arcs seem to be so daunting, they are hard to run or participate in and feel like you're accomplishing anything.

Universal classic monsters could be cool, too. big_smile Not sure how you'd do it, though.

I'm sure there's more I could come up with, but just throwing some out there as well.

Re: We need a game/sim!

I am all for ideas! And I totally get what you are saying about BSG and Pacific Rim. Although, I think Pacific Rim, of the two of those would be more doable.

I am not familiar with Z nation or 28 days later.... but I am all for a good post apocalyptic game.

I was sadden by the Alien sim as well. A re do would would be interested, but would definitely need a GM.

Universal Classic Monsters?

Re: We need a game/sim!

Universal monsters are the monsters of old done in movies put out by Universal, such as Mummy, Werewolf, Dracula, Frankenstein, etc.

I like monster movies, what can I say.

Re: We need a game/sim!

Elrood, what would be your tops picks for a game?

Euan, interested?

Re: We need a game/sim!

Maybe zombies.

Probably depends on who would be running it though. Seems we'd want something that plays to the strengths of the GM.

Re: We need a game/sim!

I'd join a zombie sim if you would take me back.

Another sim idea is one where you play a character who plays a VRMMORPG (Virtual Reality Massive Multiplayer Role Playing Game). It will be set in the future, where game capsules are the rage and entering one will take you to a new fantasy world where you defeat monsters and level up your avatar, create guilds, do PvP or dungeon raids, etc.

With this, you can also do two separate storylines, one set in the "real world" as your character and another set in the "virtual world" as your avatar. So it may make up some interesting stories.

Re: We need a game/sim!

I see no issue with you rejoining us, Daniel.

Re: We need a game/sim!

Cool, in that case, if everyone is okay with it, then I would like to be the Game Master for the zombie/ post apocalyptic sim. (If we are doing that)

I've been a GM before in AJJE games, as well as the previous site I was an admin for. Although, on AJJE, it was mainly star trek or star gate.

Re: We need a game/sim!

Is two players enough for it? Currently only myself and Misty are in, as far as I can tell.

Re: We need a game/sim!

Ideally, you want to start with 5-6 people. However, considering there is low activity on the site at the moment, 2 (3 if you included me) should be okay to start a zombie sim. You can always add more players by running into other survivors, or if there is little to no activity from a player then you can just kill them off. This type of game is pretty flexible.

If you want we can wait for a reply from Euan, Silent and others to see if they are interested the game, or if they have any other ideas. I'm happy to start whenever though, as I have a general idea on where the RP can go.

Re: We need a game/sim!

I'm fine starting and adding more later. The faster we get started, the faster folks see activity and may consider joining.

Re: We need a game/sim!

I agree with you both. I might be able to pull in a few more players that I have been working on.

Daniel, do you have a name for this? I can get it added this afternoon at some point today and start working on a character. I might give my old Zombie character a look and see if she's reusable. What is you take on multiple characters per player?

Re: We need a game/sim!

Game name will be called Outbreak.

In regards to multiple characters, I'm all for it. I'll be playing quite a few myself.

Once the thread is made, I'll post up some information and stuff after work today.
