Page limit. I just noticed we're near 500.

I've been marinating my idea about "gods-as-highschoolers" concept, and I'm still torn between reborn-gods and brand-new gods. Should I make the players pick a deity to reinterpret, or allow then to make their own, because I've two plotlines in mind that depend on this choice.

Please provide as much detail as possible.

RP's Overarching Concept: Players control their own bands of 17th century mercenaries, and war their way across a vast, uncharted island in search of wealth and glory.

Genre/s: Warhammer: Fantasy, Adventure, Pike & Shot.

Character or Faction Based: Both?

Detailed Description: Imperial explorers have boldly charted their way to a hitherto undiscovered island! Already, tales of sweltering jungles, irate natives, dark sorcery and wealth beyond all imagination have filtered back to the Old World. Are expeditions being planned? Certainly. Are any of them motivated by anything but absolute faith, stunning brutality and bottomless greed? Certainly not! Granted, some fussy naysayers at the Imperial College of Altdorf insists the island has risen from the vast blue ocean itself, that its origins are entwined with fell sorcery, and that it is surely an omen of the End Times – but who cares? Sensible heads are hardly concerned by such scholarly nonsense! They know there’s gold to be made and glory to be had.

And that’s where you come in. You are the bold leader of a stalwart band of mercenaries, scofflaws, cutthroats and freelancers.

(Image)

Your job is to conquer this land, or at the very least lend an armoured hand in plundering its riches.

This is Murania. In its sweltering jungle depths you will find your wealth or perish trying.

(Image)

Need Help With: The mechanics, basically. Right now, players can either explore various areas or fight things. Perhaps even both, if so inclined. There needs to be more than that though, doesn't there? You can’t build an RP based on those two things alone. Can you?

Please leave this hashtag in place: #Mentorhelp

That seems very interesting, and i'd love to join in.

You can absolutely build an RP off of "explore/kill". It's the most basic rule of P2tM: offer murder and they will come.

RP's Overarching Concept: A war RP based on Walking War Robots
Genre/s: Action, War
Character or Faction Based:Both
Detailed Description: The year is 21XX. Humanity has colonized and populated its home system. Nations began competing for land, fascism saw a return, and Militarism was at an all time high. The New German Order left the UN and declared war on the Russian Empire. The fragile peace the United Nations had kept for centuries had finally been broken. The danger and intensity of the war meant no one could remain out of the war.

The Transatlantic Military Corporation began getting heavily involved, raiding installations from both sides for resources and selling equipment to either. At the same time several colonies began vying for independence and formed the Freedom Fighters Alliance. Rapidly the PRC got involved and began raiding the Russian mainland. At this point Thermonuclear Weapons could no longer be ignored. After a few days many cities no longer existed. The war did not end unfortunately, it had only escalated. Japan, the USA, and the UK joined the war. Soon after, the first battle between Space Warships was realized. Mechs the size of several stories were created. Many, many, many would die and yet the war would not end.

Now YOU must change the fate of humanity, by taking control of an Ace Mech Pilot, a Legendary Admiral, or anything in between. End this terrible war and revive hope for all.

Agreed. We should probably make a new thread.
This nation a funsion between capitalism and social democracy (the only type of socialism made to actually be incorporated into capitalist governments rather than trying to destroy it).

This nation is PMT/FT. Sometimes modern tech.

We sometimes use pokemorphs and digimon in our armed forces. Sometimes

We are technically centrist.

This nation is a reunited Yugoslavia (and also sometimes controls the UK as well).

RP Advertisement Form




Basic Information
RP Name: 2024: Age of Superpowers
RP Creator/OP: Atrilan
CoOP/s: Nancivania, Greater Redosia, and Pacificora
Genre/s: Modern Times, Politics, Warfare
Type: Nation
Player Level: Intermediate/Advanced
Number of Players Desired: No limit
Posting Frequency: Slow, one high-quality post within a three-week period from each player
Any Restrictions?: Players which wish to interact with larger organizations, like the European Union, would serve themselves greatly by coming on the Discord, but this isn't mandatory

Details: Y or N
Is the setting already defined: Y
Is there a character/faction/nation application in place: Y
Are the rules posted: Y
Is this RP currently running: Y

Description
Never has hunger been lower, never have standards of living been higher. Despite this, the world is marked by fear in rapid social, political, and technological change. The backlash of globalization is felt as parts of the Middle East and Africa collapse into states of hybrid warfare, as nations challenge eachother's access to vital resources, and as the political unity of the world comes to a grinding halt. The gravity of power in the world is evidently shifting towards East Asia, as India and China are projected to be the new superpowers of the 21st century, but these powers have yet to find a way to replace the Western order. The nations of the west fervently battle this shift of change in an effort to hold onto power for a while longer. The power struggle ignited by crisis and spread by political goals is felt globally. The world is not the same as it once was, and it will never return to it's current state. The tipping point begins in 2024.

Additional Info Assad won the Syrian Civil War, European Union was forced to restrict migration from the Middle East after a large terrorist attack in Stockholm, the United States abandoned the European nations against Russia when war was nearing, Sino-Indian relations have broken down, Sino-Russo relations have become cold due to contradicting political aims, etc.

Link to the OOC: viewtopic.php?f=31&t=435285

If anyone is willing, I need some allies in this RP: Belarus, Syria, or a Pro-Russia Finland would be nice. However, this is also to spread the 2024 brand.

I waited 12 days for someone to get an app up for a promising RP, and after such a long wait and no return TGs I knew they where not applying. But by then I was certain the other players had lost interest (no activity on the OOC for 12 days and no IC as I was waiting on that one player who didn't have the decency to tell me they where not apply).

Well, I'd like to make up for that this coming week. I'd like to get an RP in that series up. Something focused rather then broad. Something that needs only one player. I can surely keep such going.

Speaking of people not applying, I'm going to post a message on another OOC of mine to see if it gets a response as I am, again waiting, and apparently have more patience then others.

I hate when they do so without returning my TGs. At least if they let me know they've lost interest I can adapt and get the RP rolling. The last two posts on the OOC of that thread is me stating that I'll get the RP up when that player get's their application posted and another player responding with excitement about getting the IC started.

Such is why I'd like to get another RP in that series rolling- it had a continuity stemming from the first RP in that setting, and the RP in question was to be a sequel.

The setting is... one where Earth has a 'Counter' in it's orbit- another planet on the opposite side of the sun. That planet being Sauria, inhabited by dinosaur like bipeds. Sauria, a planet united by an Empire, is undergoing a state of global cooling brought about by volcanic soot. It's set it's eyes on Earth for settlement.

The first RP, Of Civility and Ambition, revolved around two civilian factions; one seeking to conquer Earth and the other wanting to establish trade relations and migration treaties. The players unanimously elected to trade and migrate to Earth. The IC never reached a conclusion but those of us involved came up with what happened and thus came the 2nd RP.

The 2nd set in Australia on January the 1st of 2018; with first contact having occurred in the year 1996. That RP; Migrant's Story involved Saurians living on Earth with a few human characters; mostly those unhappy with the immigrants. Sauria was introduced to Democracy for the first time and the Empire is cracking down.

For this third RP I'd like to have the setting Sauria during the time the 2nd RP would have taken place in. With Human characters living on Sauria during this time of crisis.

Here on links to both OOCs if you'd like to take a greater look and I'll happily answer your questions. I know I'll love doing so.

RP1

RP2

I'll also take any suggestions regarding what to do for the next RP- either reboot the 2nd or go with the idea for the third or something I've not yet considered. It's a setting I know has great potential.

Maybe, but I'm currently involved in several RPs and I don't want to overload myself.
Patriotic centrist American, who is vaguely right leaning. I support the Bill of Rights. I have no loyalty to any party. Expand or die. That's how humanity works. Science fiction is the best genre. The solar system is ours for the taking. I am a male. You can't spell team without "me". I support the troops.
Call me Pax. I take things literally, being a literal person.

Three months into 2018 and I haven't participated in a single RP that didn't die within the first week. In fact I think I've only participated in one that's even been posted this year so far. Oh well.
