Well, been meaning to post this topic for a while... anyway.

I was wondering if LBPC would be interested in one of my wacky schemes for world domina- I mean, a role play. you know, one of those things where people take up specific roles, yaaddiyaddiayda?

Well, I want to make one of those! ... But I'm not TOO sure how to do it preciously... I'm good with stories, but...

Ok, so basically, I want to know: Anyone interested in helping to make a forum role play, or interested in any way, or interested in helping to figure out how it will be done?

Should it just be an interactive story like previous role plays here, or should it be more "gamey", I guess one could say like DnD I guess... I unno, anyone want to help me think of anything or think of any ideas in any way?

Hey that sounds like a pretty good idea you got going there RockSauron. Sure you can count me in, sounds like something I would enjoy doing.

Might be ok though now the CODEMASTER is one of us :D

You implying something? ;)

Yeah, but seriously, I am thinking we could do a Modern Era Roleplay. Perhaps a mobster type roleplay? Or perhaps a war?

Sound great, but you might want to keep your expectations realistic. Rocksauron won't want to do that.

You mean a role play like a thread or something more advanced with money and all that stuff?

Lil-Pingin
04-13-2009, 10:37 PM
I like Codes idea it seems like it could be pretty interesting, but I will not do anything with pokemon sorry to those who like it and all but its just not me....:)

Well... I unno, personally I would want to try an "advanced" role play, with at least some stats like such...

And yes code, a war could sound good... perhaps. :O

I haven't done forum roleplay in a long time... It's been at least three years. So, RockSauron, since you like stats, money, etc. etc... How about a classic Final Fantasy Roleplay? It's "gamey", it's got all those traits you're looking for, and everyone could begin as their class (Black/White/Red/Blue Mage, Warrior, Thief, etc.). Seriously, I'd do anything to do a roleplay of FF. :p

Yeah, that would indeed work... In fact those were kinda my original thoughts :/

I could also come up with a decent story... or something, I unno.

anyway, any objections to a fantasy thing? Or any other thoughts, or what? :O

Xenifus
04-13-2009, 10:58 PM
And to any objectors, don't say you wouldn't understand the story. I can whip up some class descriptions and other things if you'd like, Rock. I was also thinking of a gridded map and that you could only move so many spaces a day.

Lil-Pingin
04-13-2009, 11:00 PM
I dont have any objections at all to the whole fantasy thing, I am just not well familarized with final fantasy or what not, but I am willing to try seeing how it sounds as though it could get pretty interesting and fun. Just let me know what I need to do and I will try my very best to accomplish it...:)

That sounds like Chaz's strategy board game... =D

And yeah, you could do stuff like that indeed... But yeah, first I want to gain a list of who would be interested, and exactly how it would work... so a grid based system? Eh, I can't really draw, but it could just be a series of squares... but that would be kinda hard to keep updated via paint, but, um...

... yeah! I still want to do this, and something like such would be cool!

Xenifus
04-13-2009, 11:10 PM
Yeah, it'd be terrible to keep things updated with pictures, so here's my idea:
Whenever you travel, you could say after your character's chapter as a summary: "Xenifus defeats Garland, and takes camp in the forest south of the Chaos Temple (12,23)", with those coordinates at the end being your final position for the day. Yeah, I know I used FF1's story right there, LEMME ALONE!

I would prefer a war thing to be honest. It could be a fantasy war with guilds and clans and all sorts, but I don't want it to be too much like FF as I could just play that if I wanted to.

I would get very involved if we did this. Graphic art, ideas, playing, anything.

Maybe we could try a crossover of the two ideas?

Dunno...

I dont really like the grid thing, but we could have a system where you can travel 5 times a day or something. As in between towns. Once in a town you could do what you want.

Lil-Pingin
04-13-2009, 11:21 PM
I like the war idea myself and the grid thing does sound kinda confusing to keep up with but i am sure it could be done and maybe since some want the fantasy theme and some want the war theme we could make where there is two sides. One for the fantasy and One for the war and they could go against each other at times and then maybe at times work together, i dunno just a thought prolly a very dumb one but thought i would share it with ya'll.

That IS interesting... Another solution would be to make two seperate RPGs.

04-13-2009, 11:24 PM
If you wait a while I will post all of my ideas. (I have thought of these for a long time, but never wrote them down)

I will probably get the list done tomorrow as it is half past midnight now.

EDIT: 2 RPGs would work and I would participate in both.

Would this be on here or a seperate forum?

Xenifus
04-13-2009, 11:41 PM
This thread you mean? No, it'd probably be easier to just make two seperate threads in this forum section.

RockSauron
04-13-2009, 11:43 PM
So... yeah. Xenifus, Moley, if you want to do whatever, FEEL FREE! :grr:

moleynator
04-13-2009, 11:44 PM

I mean as in a WHOLE new forum. Not just on this site. A roleplay game is so much easier with more threads.If you try and cramp it all in it gets out of control.

Xenifus
04-13-2009, 11:53 PM
I don't think we have the power to make a new forum. Or do you mean make our OWN complete forum just for the RPGs?

RockSauron
04-13-2009, 11:55 PM

He means a completely new forum on one of those free websites. NOT on the site :grr:

Xenifus
04-14-2009, 12:00 AM
Ah, okay. I think we could do that as long as it's free and has image hosting, etc. But if the RPGs were stickies, I think we'd be fine when it comes to keeping these forums clean.

moleynator
04-14-2009, 12:02 AM
I made this as a little test forum. It will be COMPLETELY redone when we start it properly. It is not finished yet and only has a few parts at the moment.

hey i would love to participate in this is sound very interesting if your looking for other sites where you can make the threads for this try rpol.net, its free and will allow you to make whatever you need to post all of this. If whoever is making the specific rules (stats, classes, powers, levels) needs any help i am good with making that sort of thing and having it be balanced


oh sorry moleynator, your post came up just as i was posting :P

That's really cool! How about in the World Map forum we also have an Overworld thread/subforum that will be used to track the characters outside of cities. Also, in the World Map, we could make a sticky of the World Map itself.

Lol, don't say that, Rock. We really just want to help, not take over.

Going to bed now. Discuss more and I will see what can be added.

redmagus

so what general theme are you guys going for? fantasy, space, post apocolyptic, horror?

I still want to do the Final Fantasy thing. *sniff sniff* I smell Red Mage on you, redmagus. :p

... Speaking of which, didn't zetaboards have that rpg mod or whatever? :/

okay then so what kinds of classes are you guys thinkin? the four standard or will it be more freeform than that?

Can someone make a list of stats we want included please?

04-14-2009, 12:30 AM
hmm i looked at the image, it sounds interesting but if thats how many people we will need for a balanced party then it sort of depends on how many people we get, or are we not going with the whole "party" thing?

Xenifus
04-14-2009, 12:31 AM
I think party's are more of "during a quest" sort of thing. You can go alone, if you can risk it.

redmagus
04-14-2009, 12:32 AM
but is this a quest sort of thing?

Xenifus
04-14-2009, 12:33 AM
There will be quest threads.

Also, I'm thinking of using the World of Balance map from Final Fantasy VI. Excellent layout, I find.

redmagus
04-14-2009, 12:34 AM
could you post it somewherez pleaz? or find it since i have no idea what that is and im prob not the only one

Hm... Any who appose of the FF RPG?

RockSauron
04-14-2009, 12:35 AM
I could start writing a story :O Of sorts...

Hm...

Ok, letsee!

There will be a god.
He controlled humanity, and eventually humanity got sick of having to serve a god who twisted the world to their own evil desires.
So they went to war with the gods, and with the help of seven crystals, trapped him and placed him in a temple.
As time went by, the memory of the gods was forgotten...
However, now a new religious order is seeking to resurrect the forgotten god, who will surely seek revenge on humanity. They believe the god will forgive them for their sins if they resurrect them, and so will ascend into heaven.
People will play as "Heroes" (having two sides battle it out may not work really...). They will do general stuff, blah blah blah. However, every so often, there will be a series of story related quests, where the religious order is seeking to resurrect the evil god, and you have to do specific things in quests to stop them, so it would be some huge community event and whatnot.

redmagus
04-14-2009, 12:37 AM
hmm that seems more like a single quest than a free roaming campain setting, its a great idea though

Xenifus
04-14-2009, 12:37 AM
And here's a map of the World of Balance:

moleynator
04-14-2009, 12:42 AM

I dont get why its FF! Cant it be original?

Xenifus
04-14-2009, 12:43 AM
I really love the places on the map. They have a lot of diversity culturally and in climate. For example, Narshe is near the mountains; snowy, cold, but has much technology going on. Figaro Castle, in the desert, is a castle capable of submerging under the sands and travelling to the small desert near south of Kohlingen.

Xenifus
04-14-2009, 12:45 AM

FF is just a good base for an RPG. The classes and such are perfect for a forum RPG, and I just thought it might have been a good idea.

EDIT: Real sorry for double post...

redmagus
04-14-2009, 12:48 AM
idk my only problem is i personally dont know that much about FF, but then again i doubt we would be able to find any sort of existing system that everyone is familiar with, maybe we could make one up but make it have the same sort of space age-fantasy feel that FF has

That's my character's bio. Not 100% completed, but will be once I finish the stat system for each character. I encourage anyone else who's gonna join to get a head start on developing a character! Remember to use the template in the stickied thread in that forum.

Xenifus
04-14-2009, 01:26 AM
Don't worry, this won't have any reflection on the actual games, the only similarity is the map and the 6 classes, which are easy to get a hold of. :)

It really is a mistake to call it Final Fantasy, especially since all final Fantasies are different games and, uh, yeah.

Well, Xenifus, seeing as how you are pretty much in charge now... you need to figure out how the battle system, starting system, keeping people from cheating system, whatever systems are going to do.

Let's keep it slow... don't get over your head, since this IS an awesome idea :).

Lil-Pingin

EDIT: Guests can now see and read the rest of the forums.

Its your choice.

Also, if you see any ideas on my test board then please feel free to use them. I dont know if you could use clans...?

Xenifus
04-14-2009, 01:53 AM
Clans? I was thinking of Kings and followers, etc. I got your PM, Pingin, did you get my reply? And I was thinking the exact same thing, Rock.

And you're now an admin, Moley. Pingin, you're next when something comes up, okay? :p

You start with 10 skill points. Share it out between your stats.

You get +3 boost from your class.

For our weapons at the start, I think they should be very basic. Instead of a broadsword it could be rusty broadsword, for example.

What do you think?

I joined, armed with my trusty Gnarled Twig.

I could help with planning out a battle system etc.

EDIT: Anyone ever play The Curse of Monkey Island Games? Insult Battles! How awesome would that be...

Ok, so, um... Alright, I'm stumped XD

First, I kinda need to figure out a battle system... well someone else does.

but who is brave enough to take up this task? :O

I could try it...

How about we figure out weapon damage and how much hp you can have. If it is a number under 100 then it could be done using an online dice (http://www.nanogames.com/dice.php) which is rolled a certain amount of times depending on the attack you do and how good you are at that type of attack.

Or, it could be a range of damage possible for you to do, in which case we could use a random number generator (http://www.random.org/)

Maybe... yeah this will be real tough to maintain if we open it to the public. We really need to just keep this to the good people at LBPC who we know won't ruin it and cheat (can't think of anyone here who would do that :O), but yeah, we need SOME kind of battle system soon, seeing as how I need to fight giant rats next...

Okay here is a basic concept, why not make it something like you defence plus any armor bonus +5 is your total defence and the attacker rolls a die (sized according to the power of the attack so like hitting someone with with a mace does more damage than say getting scratched by a cat) this die roll is added to the attack score and if this number is higher than the total defence any extra turns into damage, Ex: Fighter with an attack of 6 rolls a d6 for his attack with a sword and gets a 5 so his total attack is 11, he is hitting someone with a defence of 3 so their total defence is 8 (3+5=11). The total attack is higher than the total defence by 3 so the defender takes 3 damage. Of course this could be modified to be more or less complicated can apply to different situations. Also maybe Hp could be attack plus defence plus five or something so people with high attack and defence scores have more health than people with low ones, i.e. fighters can take more hits than mages.

That sounded complicated at first but I understand now. I think HP should be gained by going up levels. A level system is almost definately needed, right? That can allow you to do different stuff, for example, enter a cave that has better enemies in it.

Im gonna fix up a list of some stuff I would like and you can all change it or completely disregard it. I dont mind which. :)

yeah its sort of hard to coordinate ideas typing from a ps3, i dont know much about the classes but i could try to draw up a progression, maybe to keep it simple your health goes up a fixed amount each lvl based on your class an then you can choose a stst increase every few lvls, Also are spells and special attacks going to be bought (like in FFXII) or learned through level progression? id prefer the latter but either way is fine

I would say that some are obtained by quests, some by levelling and others bought.

I made a list... You can all add or take away or change or leave whatever you want. :)

This is what I propose

Arms/Hands: Leather gloves
Legs/Feet: Sandals or tatty leather boots

good idea , but we still need a shop of items like potions and pheonix downs and antidotes and that sort of thing, id be willing to come up with a system for money and run it if you guys want me to.

but before any of that comes along we need to know how health will work and like the effects of poisen and other conditions (paralysis,petrify,sap,slow all those things) id also like to start working on a spell list :)

Just added a battle system. Don't use it yet until I finish the rest of the stats, the bestiary, and creature habitat's world map.

And moley, go ahead and post that on the forums with the Character Stats. If you don't mind, maybe you could edit our characters.

Weeeeell... Me and moley, in our impatience and various other factors, have made our own, NEW role play forum- Yep. So, yeah, I won't link you to this one just yet, we want to get it planned out first, but if anyone wants to take part in planning the game, thenI suppose I can see if we can link you.
