Signup/Organisation

Post by Darth Skywalkerbacca on Sun Nov 06, 2011 10:29 am

On account of Overlords post in ‘Ethics and Choice’ decrying how I have strayed from providing Ethical issues in my scenarios into some bizarre choose your own adventure, I have decided to create this topic for especially that (seems though these choose your own adventure games have tended to garner peoples interest). As such I am going to try and create a more novel like game, with you making more of the decisions.

I will start by asking what genre you would like the story to beset in providing a couple of examples:

Fantasy: Your basic ‘Lord of the Rings’ epic
Sci-Fi: A ‘Star Wars’ like space opera
Thriller: General spy and intrigue type
Romance: don’t you think Eggs and Reverse would make a great couple?

Post in thread the type of story you would want and an example of a book to further clarify your choice.

Ooh, this could be fun.

It's worth differentiating between setting and style. You can have sci-fi thriller, or sci-fi romance etc etc

For setting, some other common options include early 20th century urban type; typical western; and of course there are varying levels of fantasy (from medieval with a few fantasy elements all the way up to high fantasy with the works.

I don't think romance would work seriously.

You'd need to strike a balance between a story you wrote that doesn't offer choice (ie it keeps returning to this path no matter what), and a story with no cohesion created entirely on players' whims. It's up to you to keep the atmosphere consistent, but give players enough freedom to build the world we create.

Fist of all, good idea to split the threads.

I'll vote fantasy. An example of style could be 'Codex Alera' or 'The Dresden Files'. Magic/powers are good; but specialised is probably better than all-purpose. It's good if there's a system in place (authorities etc) that we can work under (or against).

Clarke's Third Law means I'm happy with fantasy or sci-fi.

Just waiting on Eggs now, right?

Yes, I messaged him but he has yet to post, Sid and Reverse can you give examples of books (or movies or television show etc) that you would like the setting to be like so far the fanasty has it with Codex Alera and the Dresden Files being Idea for tone I have.

ok High Fantasy it is.

The only examples I have to go on are codex Alera or the dresden files so I'm thinking more Codex Alera everybody ok with this? (wikipedia Codex Alera for more details)

If you are the next step is creating your character, this isn't going to be a typical choose your own adventure game in the fact that I'm not going to give you any choices you are going to create a character and then control that characters actions only there will be no big group desicions where I give you one of three choices.

In this case I want everybody to create a vague character bio or outline (needs to include physical apperance and character traits post them in thread for now but we will solidify them later via PM.

Everybody ok with that?

OK.

My character will be tall, dark and handsome. You know what I look like, so just go with that...

Heheh.

Hmm, description. Moderate height; fairly inconspicious. Medium-length brown hair. Vivid blue eyes. Propensity for black longcoats/capes.

Character traits... Outwardly confident (we can decide later how accurate that it), with a flair for the dramatic. Way up there in terms of intelligence and genre savviness (although how that will go with Darth in charge is anyone's guess). Happy to work along but will deign to be part of a group if the situation calls for it.

That's enough for now; looking forward to seeing what you guys put (no pressure!)

I'll think on mine.

I think we need to either create or extrapolate some character *flaws* as well. Be they standalone failings, or side-effects of other traits is unimportant.

Imagination...

*looks around*

Can't find it at the moment, using google to come up with my character for me.

My character is Cicero Smile

I will be easier to know the character if you have played TES:Skyrim.

I will write out a proper explanation of this character later.

Top of page, there seems to be a lot of interest.
Bottom of page, people are stealing ideas from YouTube.

...

Oh, well, the back and forth between Darth and I via PM can continue.

Although I like the idea, I will not be participating in the Sandbox RPG. Never having played anything like it before without some effort on my own part I will easily be left out of the game.

I am disappointed by the response to this topic. There is some work involved with creating your character but after that your inclusion can be as minimal as you wish.

I shall be a thief/rogue. Agile, stealthy and precise; although I'd be somewhat weak in a head-on confrontation (maybe a dagger or something?). Being a thief, I'd probably bear hints of ulterior motives in any cooperative scenario, which might cause strife.
Proficiency with a bow, small-scale mechanics and possibly poisons or other chemistry alchemy (read: explosives). Probably a smooth-talker and good liar, able to induce gullible (or not so gullible) individuals to lower their guard. Very uncomfortable about discussing their profession with people who know about it.

How's that for a starting point?

Where's Sid?
