The Aftermath system
This system relies partly on a steady basis of number-crunching, something that isn’t put away for everyone. If you aren’t prepared to invest an average five or ten minutes in your post, calculating resources and soforth, don’t bother signing up. You have to be capable of managing this RP, so know your own limits.

Turn-based
Each posts counts as a turn, which means that you have to wait for your fellow participants to post before you can do the same. This is why everyone has to stay committed to this RP, because we aren’t going to have everyone else wait because one or two people can’t post. When you post, you can only describe what your people are going to do and add some description to it as well, just to make it enjoyable to read.

Each turn will be introduced by a post by (one of) the OP(s), detailing information about what happened to your people. WE determine how a scouting mission or anything else turns out.

In your post, you can RP with people in your nation, like a higher-in-command. For an example of a post, BE SURE TO CHECK THIS LINK.

Resources, buildings & units
You can compare this to a turn-based strategy game, because basically that’s what this is. Each turn your faction receives resources for any kind of resource category. These resources are what keep your faction running; allows you to build structures, recruit units and bargain with NPC’s. Each turn YOU will be required to crunch the numbers and calculate your income, subtract the expenditures for building/training, upkeep, etc. and determine the net income which you may then add to your existing resource pool. As mentioned before, see the example. I really want you to have viewed at least some.

Population
Maintaining a large population is impossible, as food and other resources have become far less common. Every day is a struggle for life, with disease and bandits everywhere to shorten a man’s life span, so more than four-hundred people in your faction will pose a challenge. Make sure your forces reflect this. Each unit consists of about five people, so having more than forty units would be stretching it quite a bit, considering a part (say 50%) would probably have to worry themselves with making sure your base/town’s infrastructure remains intact and soforth.

Plus it’s a nice idea to leave a few units back home for defensive purposes. Know that we will consider assaulting your base with a horde of NPC ghouls if we feel like it.

Tech levels
Let’s be honest here, no way can your forces be equipped with powerful, durable or experimental weaponry. You’ll be lucky enough to start off with a pistol, but fortunately the city is a treasure trove of modern weaponry. Laser and plasma weaponry is more rare, of course; that speaks for itself. Remember that you need more than guns to survive. Medicine and water are in dire need, and finding ways to purify that water would indubitably give you an advantage.

Mutations & Radiation
Fiction brings us an original understanding of the term. Enhanced strength, green skin and useful new limbs at places you’d never expect; you’d wonder why we don’t give every baby a healthy dose of it. Of course, we did; but sadly out children didn’t just grow an unusually big brain. If the world has been destroyed by a nuclear holocaust, you should ask yourself why the human population has suddenly plummeted without any excessive destruction in our cities. Radiation is lethal, with the exception of ghouls and mutants, so keep that in mind.

Note that all water supplies are contaminated as well, but as long as you keep a moderate supply of pure water your population should be able to survive by switching between both options.

Page 2: RP specifics

Resources
The resources categories in this RP are as followed:
Materials
A general term for all kinds of junk-of-the-more-or-less-useful kind, materials are needed for building, making weapons, armor or other objects. It’s the most easy to find, considering that people have gotten much less picky of which kind of screw they’re using to keep that fence standing between them and a gang of mindless ghouls.
Fuel
The rarest resource around, fuel is used to keep generators running and – if you can spare it – allows you to move vehicles around the wasteland. Moving around in style is costly, and if you’re already complaining about gas prices you’re not going to be too happy.
Supplies
Food, clean water and medicine that keeps your population happy. Depending on your population, you’ll lose some supplies each turn. For our convenience, every 5 people in your faction demand an additional 5 supplies.

Example: If you have 100 people in your faction you’ll have to pay 100 supplies each turn, which means you earn 200 supplies every turn, taking into account your income.

Note: The low upkeep advantage that comes with a lower population also comes with the downside of a lower unit limit. In our example, 50% of your people means 50 of your population will be free to venture out or guard your home, resulting in a limit of 10 units.

Stuff you need to remember at all costs:
50% of your population is free to venture out or guard your home.
For each group of 5 people in your population, you need to pay 5 supplies in upkeep each turn.
When submitting your population, stay with a number dividiable by 5 (eg. 25, 65, 80)
 People that don’t won’t get admitted, because not reading this probably means you’re not going to make an effort of your posts either.





Faction-types
Raiders
Raiders are any group of wastelanders who pillage, plunder, murder, or otherwise ruin the day of anyone unfortunate enough to not be one of them. If there were still laws, they'd be outlaws. Raiders tend to organize into loose confederations of gangs in the post-apocalyptic wasteland and are a constant problem, because it's much easier for them to just shoot people for their money, food, and other valuables than to earn an honest living.

Raiders more than often partake in slavery, using them to make their own lives more comfortable than anyone else’s

Faction bonuses:


Tribals
Tribal refers to the name given to rural inhabitants by those still living in urban areas. They have shrugged off many modern ways of living, and returned to a simpler hunter-gatherer mentality. Tribals often look upon the traders and occupants of cities with disdain, viewing their way of life as "scavenging the dying corpse of the old world." Despite the fact that tribals are generally healthier and in better physical condition than their urban-dwelling countrymen, they are viewed with disdain and often hostility.

Tribals, compared to other factions, have more proficiency with makeshift weaponry, but still use technology for their own means.

Faction bonuses:



Remnants
Umbrella term for anyone trying to pick up the pieces of pre-war society and find their place in the wasteland. Their main difference with Tribals is that they remain dependent of the remnant of urban society and it’s structures. Whether a town of like-minded civilians, a government-sponsored scientific community or a military organization trying to restore order, all of them are remnants of the old-world.

Remnants are familiar with technology of the past, although they lack some of the know-how and advantage the other two factions possess.

Faction bonuses:

The upgrade itself requires a one-time investment of 200 materials. Robotic units are automatically equipped with energy weapons and are incorporated in their upkeep.

Wasteland Perks
- Upgrade Kits
One of the purchasable upgraded, for free.

- Power-Armored Boyscouts
Your men have discovered a cache of pre-war Power armor suits. You can give this armor to 2 of your units, yielding them a bonus in battle. Too bad Super Mutants can't fit in them, but they'll function as scrap metal as well!

Allows you to upgrade two units, adding the prefix Power-Armored (Human, Ghoul)
(example: Power-Armored Assault unit)

- Eye CU
A stray eyebot crossed your path, and your unit managed to seize it. It’s almost out of juice and pretty battered, so it’ll only go a short distance, but it might give you some intel before it shorts out.

Allows you to scout an adjacent area

- FEV Fanatic
It seems like somebody misplaced his barrel of FEV! Any mutant faction will be able to recruit 3 units with no additional costs, as long as they manage to capture a few living specimens. Ghouls will remain unaffected and humans, well, let's just say one of your units isn't coming home for dinner.

+3 Militia Units (Mutants), -1 Unit (Humans)

Seems like your standard resource-based system, but I like it nonetheless. I'd be interested in joining.

Actually, let me list the RP ideas I've been throwing around:
  • Conceptual (possibly character-based, possibly faction-based) DayZ RP

I don't know anything about Aion, but the FT one seems very interesting. Reminds me of an idea I had which basically consisted of the Napoleonic Wars in space with robots. I've already tossed out my Z-Apocalypse idea; frankly, I don't see a point in a zombie RP without a pre-written plot.



On a separate note: I'm starting to really swing towards that Cowboy Bebop RP, but I need to know what kind of support I'll be getting, before I put all that work into writing bounty mission scripts. If you want to join, anyone, or you'd be interested in joining, please TG me. I have further details available upon request as well.

what is cowboy bebop
DOMINATED BY OBSESSION OF POWER AND LUST, LED BY UNWRITTEN RULES FROM CLINICAL BIRTH TO CLINICAL DEATH. ASK THE EPITHET OF GOD! IT STILL IS DECEPTION, NO IDEOLOGY, NO PROGRESS; NOTHING. THE WORLD IS SMOTHERED IN ABSURDITY.

You have a LOT of space in them, you can use them for both.

I mean, look mine, you can easily find my favourire PC and RP. In a second.

I personally prefer to tailor my PCs for an RP on another. To be honest, having a preset character for each genre feels cheap and not very imaginative, to me.

I would be willing to combine. Or, we could go our separate ways, perhaps with an event some time in the future where the (now space-faring) nations encounter each other.

Well, ours is based on a post-apocalyptic premise, inspired by Fallout.

I'm not sure how that'd mix.

Your planet has no effect on my planet. Yours can be in a state of post-apocalypse, while mine can be in a state of either constant skirmish/warfare and/or uneasy peace.

False, when people do PC they always have some traits they really love to show. That's what you should to, put all you like in one PC and then use it as archetype.

But it might allow you to add more dimension to that one archetype if you RP with it multiple times.

Not an excessive amount, though. But making up a new character each time might decrease the quality of each one as you try to make up an entirely different character.

^Ditto. Daniel Mercury is more than a bit worn-out; as is Jormengand's "Pedro Ignacio" and others like them. The chief difference, of course, is that Pedro was a terrible Mary Sue from square one; while Daniel is actually a decent character, and First changes him subtly every time he uses him. As for me, I make a new character for a lot of RPs, but at the same time, I have certain characters I like so much that I save them for later use. I've got a Word document full of 'em. Iris Sendia; Card Hayes; Jack, Amy, and Asaka Sullivan; there are plenty of these multiple-use characters that I can and will whip out for certain RPs. But there are limitations. For example, the Sullivans each have a certain superpower associated with them, while Iris is a spy and assassin. Eventually, I'll have a full cast of characters, one or more for every kind of RP I partake in.

Mmh.
if one is used to make a raw new character for each RP, I guess he won't have problems in them decreasing quality. I personally find it fun to brainstorm new character concepts and then work them around. I sometimes recycle some quirks and so on, but I prefer to explore new characters and concepts for them.

I completely agree. What I hate most is people who use the same char name for every. Single. RP. Ever.

I mean, I like to RP hostile, neutral characters, usually, but that's just because it's a habit from writing with those types of characters as the protagonist...

That's exactly my point. I like to have one guy also because when I present him to an OP, he knows this doesn't come from the first thing rolled in my mind: is something I worked on and that I know it works well.
Of course, there are RP and cases that archetype is unadaptable, then you can get original. I even created a mercenary group, it could actually get fame from participating in many RP and people would wish to RP with them.

A golden rule also is NO CANON. All my pilots can die, Daniel...a little less, but because I give him a last chance power that is a bit Op, but the point still stands: All they do in an RP they don't do in another.




Now, If I could use my undead for once...
