So, I'm going to get that antiquity-to-whenever custom development RP cracking. I'm thinking of basing locations on a "region" system within a larger map, sort of nodes connected by various lanes of passage. What type of map would people like to see? Does that sound appropriate? The concept is to have larger "nodes" where cities and whatnot can be constructed, and smaller secondary nodes where resources might be found and contested by civilizations.

Sounds kind of like Spore's civilization stage. One question--can I at some point build this?

A better analogy might be, Battle for Middle Earth. And yes, I'll be allowing alternative tech development, so that should be quite possible.

Fine, :p
so in my next rp, there will only be 3 or so ways a human can use magic, Through a Contract (usually with a malicious and unsavory being, Artifacts, or they must possess a Special Bloodline.

Any suggestions for a mechanic that could be used to prevent it from being abused?

i might be interested Ex, give me a bit to peruse it.

Hm. Well, assuming you have some sort of HP/health system, my first thought would be that you should have artifacts age time dependent "charges", bloodline magic cast from hitpoints, and contract magic gradually drain the user's ability to regenerate health/if abused, outright suck the life out of them.

Contractual magic also might just have a hard cap on the number of active contracts. Constant HP damage is a bit much compared to the others, after all.

Depends, really, how you implement it. Something like "lose 1 HP per day for the next two days" represents the bargain slowly being called in by whatever entity the contract is with, and could lead to fun instances where contract sorcerers carry a fight, but then have to quickly find a way to survive their life essence being drained in the week after the battle.

I had an idea like that, that would be less stat? reliant in theory.
basic info here, Magic would affect ones physical condition adn Stamina, and it can be recovered over time(faster through certain acts or events), as long as the persons magic isnt overdrawn (meaning they havent attempted a magical feat beyond them.), as if they did so, they would have a possibly permanent disability, where magic is concerned. And Unless one has a certain bloodline, they could only have one Contract.


RP ASSISTANCE REQUEST

#1313
Concept: You are part of a group that is dedicated to securing dangerous artefacts and items of magical and arcane origins. You have to secure the items through legal means or otherwise. More To be Added
Genre(s): Modern Fantasy, supernatural, Action/Adventure, Mystery
Type (Character/Faction/Nation): Character
Level of Detail: TBD ( i want light mechanics, if that is the right word, but nothing too stat based or reliant yet)
Detailed Description: Two years ago an event happened that shook the long stagnant and dying magical world. Something woke up, and with it magic came back to the world in full force. See, while magic and the races that were made by it and of it, once existed But after humanity came and usurped them throughout a series of bloody wars, Magic and the races that used it all but disappeared. The Last truly powerful magical being was one known in human history as Vlad Tepes Dracula, or Vlad the Impaler. He was actually a vampire, one of the last powerful ones, like any of the magical beings there were still a handful left, though they were weak and secluded.

As the few magical races died out or left the view of the few human groups that tracked them, magic started to die as well. Humanity gained the power to use magic from the other beings, and through interbreeding with the other races. Eventually instead of being Halfbreeds or hybrids, the humans gained usage of magic, though the magical bloodlines are rare enough especially nowadays. With the event Magic was not the only thing that is back in this world of ours. With magic Far older things than the infant that is humanity have been brought back into this world. Vampires as well as other notable supernatural races have started to appear back into the world more noticeably.

This prompted the creation of a Task force of sorts by the Magical Council, which is made of the influential magical families in the world. They were not the only group that formed, others of more sinister natures awoke. One exception was a building called the Museum, it was an ancient Artefact that was tasked with the purpose of gathering other Artefacts that could pose a threat to the world in human hands or the hands of the other races. As magic had faded, it had grown weaker, until it was forced into a hibernation state where it slept until recently.


EDIT: I Will be using the concept of Bloodlines, with stats for an rp in the Future, Of Blood and Magic, based loosely of an rp i was almost in so long ago, called Blood Debt: a Steampunk rp. It will be set in an Alternate Fantasyn World, and I have a few mechanics ideas:

Monsters will be more powerful, and have a larger blood pool, but lack in versatility, and have weaknesses to things that humans have no problems with.

Humans will have a smaller blood pool, but are more versatile power and skill wise overall, than monsters and can gain more powers, whereas most monsters powers will be set.

Concept: So I am making a apocalypse RP. But with a huge mechanic spin that I haven't seen done. And it needs to be done well. I have the base Ideas and I know nearly everything that I need to do. But I need people to help. Lifting a table is easier when you have assistance. This will be a faction RP.

I am going to do is have it so no one faction can produce EVERYTHING. This will force people into either trade, or war. It will force interaction rather than on man setting on a mountain of resources unwilling to move. It will force people to migrate and to war and make deals.

Like arizona will be great for copper, salt and solar power if they can repair the existing infrastructure.

Meanwhile maine will be able to produce lumber and coal and have fishing and hunting. The hunting grounds can create enough to export and feed the existing population.

nevada will have stone quarry's and hydro power and maybe some other things.
Also each state naturally has military depots and other things. I need to cover those and come up with a system like the ME factions has for exploration. You can go search military installations for gear, you have a higher chance of uncovering some small arms and MAYBE explosives. And a very small chance of say a tank... ALSO, fuel. I haven't figured that out. These two things will basically stop a faction located in Georgia and rolling into the army bases there and taking 100 US Army tanks for themselves. Each tank may cost resources to restore and they will ofcorse need fuel. Meaning texas, alaska, california, montana and a few other places ahve the advantage of having access to SOME oil.

I need to work in a "peoples happiness" function into the economy too. If happiness is high, everything goes as planned, if it falls below a level. say... 30-40% then production is hindered and maybe even recruitment of soldiers. and if it falls to say 10% you are at risk for uprising. 0% means people WILL revolt. Also I will be preventing people from circumventing this by simply "killing off the ring leaders" or something similar. Because that would be to easy. Slave population needs to be a thing also. Food production also. I want to have a group of four or five tech trees that people can follow also. So lets say while one group researches max military tech they will be able to crush militarily. But their harvesting, economics and production areas will take a hit due to them having ignored those areas.
I need help developing all of this....

What do you think?

The Idea is that I don't want one group being able to start off with everything. Instead they need to work for things. Send out expeditions (that might fail depending on the defense rating of their expeditionary party.)

so, i started writing a Metro faction rp with recourses and mechanics(Semi-inspired by Blood horizons), and i wanted some opinions, so here we go

  • Etiquette. Be nice, be respectful, be adult, no one has a right to be rude in the ooc, and don’t let your having fun stop other people from having fun.
[/list]
Time
Time will be on a turn basis, with every turn representing around a week or so, a turn update will happen around 3 times a week, altho this is subject to change

Stations, and the Metro
Each settlement starts with one station at it's disposal, each station can be specialised, and buildings can be erected inside its halls. Of Course a station may not have several specializations. While your stations must always spread along the lines on the map(IE; You may only launch a settler to a station you have a track connection to), this constraint is not placed upon trading, or military units, whom both can move freely over the entire metro. If you wish to expand to a new station you must first send a recon party to it, and when it return one turn later you can send a settler to claim it under your banner. Once the station has been claimed to your name it will need one turn before you can issue it orders.

Starting Gear
By the start of the RP you will receive the following
  • One Station with a specialization of your choice
  • Basic Settlement
  • Small Command Room
  • One Unit of Armed Citizenry
  • 10 Units of Supplies

Recourse
There are a several types of recourses in this RP, the most important of this one is "Supplies", Supplies is a catch all term for common building materials and the such, this is your plants, sheet metal, clothing etc, there are also
"Food" - This is the second most important resource, this represents what is says on the can, this is your minced up rat, pig and tunnel moss mixed into a stew.
"Munitions" - This recourse is used to describe specialists weapons and it's ammunition; Flamers, Heavy MG's etc
"Manpower" - This is a rough indication of your surplus population, it is used for most higher tier military units, this recourse in not consumed however, but instead you have a set pool of it that you can increase or decrease(for example you can have 8 in your pool, but having used 1 for a unit, leaving you with 7 available, if said unit dies the man power goes back to your pool; 8/8 -> 7/8 - > 8/8)
"Luxury Supplies" - This is a termed used for the finer things in life, be that metro made tea or wine, or remnants from the old world, like coffee, paintings, or maybe a piano.
"Fuel" - A remnant from the lost world, this recourse is rare and there is no sure way to receive it 100% of the time, but it can be used for creating impressive buildings, and units

Armies and War
All units takes a set amount of time to train, this is counted from the round that you paid the recruitment cost for it(If you buy a unit with a training time of 2 turn on turn 1, it will enter the playing field on turn 3), Some units also have a maintenance fee, that must be paid every turn, less they desert. You can choose to disband a unit, upon doing so you will immediately regain 100% of the ORIGINAL cost. For scale; each unit represents around two dozen men. Each station may produce one unit per turn, assuming it has the proper buildings

A battle is pretty straightforward, A field of battle is described by me. Both combatants pick what units to allocate to said battle out of the pool they have brought, unless stated otherwise a unit may move 1 station per turn. they give orders to their units, and then the dice rolling starts on my part. The result is pronounced, as are any casualties. There exists special buildings and units that excel in making attacking or defending easier(Example; walls, mounted MG's, Panzers), and theses can make a huge difference in battle, due note that some units can only fight in the metro, while others can both fight in the metro, and on the surface.

Once you take command of a station you also get access to its buildings, provided the defender have not razed them all. All recourses made in the city will belong to you, and can be used freely. This is unless your new station is not connected to rest of your stations, this will impose a state called "Isolated" on it, meaning that all resources produced in said station can only be used in that station, this remains until the station has been reconnected with the rest
Each station can only have one Specialisation active at a time, once a person takes INITIAL command over a station he/she gets to pick it's specialisation at no penalty(unless it has already been decided due to prior events), any player may change its stations specialisation at any time, but this will put the station, and any buildings in it offline for two turns. unless stated otherwise each station can hold a max of 4 buildings and gives plus 1 to your manpower score

The specialisations are as follows
Farming - This sations has a developed system of farms, or pens for animals, it also has a well built system of water gathering; Produces 1 food and 1 Water per turn

Living Space - This station is well equipped to house more people, and to facilitate further inhabitants to be created, gives a starting bonus of 2 to manpower, and has a 50% chance to create .5 Luxury Supplies
Surface peekers - This station is located in a favorable position, and has a 50% chance to create .5 Fuel or .5 Luxury Supplies per turn
Empty Space - This station is empty, but this means you can fit one more building into it. Produces 1 Supplies per turn and has 5 building slots
Dead Station - This station has fallen, it needs to be rebuilt before it can do anything. Rebuilding a station costs 10 supplies and takes 1 turn. Until it has be rebuilt, it will produce nothing, and can only hold 1 building.

FT, but roam where i please
It does not reflect my real life world political views, which are considerably less authoritarian and more moderate
Refer to my factbook for canon, it´s however out of date, and badly written. So take it with a grain of salt

Concept: So I am making a apocalypse RP. But with a huge mechanic spin that I haven't seen done. And it needs to be done well. I have the base Ideas and I know nearly everything that I need to do. But I need people to help. Lifting a table is easier when you have assistance. This will be a faction RP.

I am going to do is have it so no one faction can produce EVERYTHING. This will force people into either trade, or war. It will force interaction rather than on man setting on a mountain of resources unwilling to move. It will force people to migrate and to war and make deals.

Like arizona will be great for copper, salt and solar power if they can repair the existing infrastructure.

Meanwhile maine will be able to produce lumber and coal and have fishing and hunting. The hunting grounds can create enough to export and feed the existing population.

nevada will have stone quarry's and hydro power and maybe some other things.
Also each state naturally has military depots and other things. I need to cover those and come up with a system like the ME factions has for exploration. You can go search military installations for gear, you have a higher chance of uncovering some small arms and MAYBE explosives. And a very small chance of say a tank... ALSO, fuel. I haven't figured that out. These two things will basically stop a faction located in Georgia and rolling into the army bases there and taking 100 US Army tanks for themselves. Each tank may cost resources to restore and they will ofcorse need fuel. Meaning texas, alaska, california, montana and a few other places ahve the advantage of having access to SOME oil.

I need to work in a "peoples happiness" function into the economy too. If happiness is high, everything goes as planned, if it falls below a level. say... 30-40% then production is hindered and maybe even recruitment of soldiers. and if it falls to say 10% you are at risk for uprising. 0% means people WILL revolt. Also I will be preventing people from circumventing this by simply "killing off the ring leaders" or something similar. Because that would be to easy. Slave population needs to be a thing also. Food production also. I want to have a group of four or five tech trees that people can follow also. So lets say while one group researches max military tech they will be able to crush militarily. But their harvesting, economics and production areas will take a hit due to them having ignored those areas.
I need help developing all of this....

Each county may or may not have resources. Yes. I have a massive map and I am ready to start editing it. :)

I may have it like this: Several counties will make a territory. you get the resources from the counties and unlock a small bonus from controlling a counties. Then all the counties make a state. Having a whole state will give you a resources bonus. Maybe something along these lines.
