I was thinking about an RP, when I realized that I'm already GMing 2.5 and don't want to fall behind on either one, so I'll post the idea here for someone else to GM if they're interested:

Spoiler (click to show/hide):

Opening post:


The days of flamboiant superhero teams have long since passed, with a connection to the Grid unheard of in today's society, to such an extent that most have forgotten about the existence of the Grid entirely. With the human race's colonized planets now under siege by a race of sentient machines, the Sentema, and a race of nightmarish monsters who seem to mutate individually at random, the Neinundo.

With the human race fighting in a three-way war against the Neinundo and Sentema, the Grid is needed now more than ever, however should it empower anyone, could one truly say that the few options it has are truly just?


Explanation:
Spoiler (click to show/hide):

Basically, the Grid refers to a source of unlimited power which uses objects it creates as conduits to tap into that power to strengthen an individual which wields these objects. These objects could be any accessory, such as a phone, a wrist watch, a pair of sunglasses, etc. Basically, when in possession of this object, one is made faster, tougher, and stronger, granted a single special power, and is given the ability to temporarily tap into the Grid even further to equip themselves with a suit of unique power armor, which even further augments their physical abilities, as well as granting them access to their own unique weapons.



Mechanics:
Spoiler (click to show/hide):

While I haven't gotten down to the specifics, as I'm sure one would be able to come up with something better than what I'm tweaking for CoR and experimenting with in Syndicate Six, I'm thinking that tapping further into the Grid would be a sort of hyper mode which grants the user a stat boost for the duration, and the player would have a counter which drains as the form is used, and refills while outside of that state. Probably outside of their MP stat or Energy stat, so that players aren't tempted to forgo their other abilities in favor of just using their Hyper Mode.

As far as the idea of hyper mode weapons, I'm not sure if it would work better to use a separate set of weapons, or use weapons with a specific stat value that makes them better than what the player otherwise has available. Alternatively, the player could instead, outside of hyper mode, have access to specific skills, like in Pokemon, which replace weapons, and when transformed, gain weapons to augment your attacks.

so i had the idea of making a mobster tech noir rp with pvp elements, and that led to me using up my whole day off to make the ooc thread. figured i'd see if there's any interest for it before posting it up. even though i know good and well that i'm gonna do it regardless, since i've come this far.

basically; its a team vs team type situation in which two competing mafia families square off for control of a cyberpunk-like city's crime world. it's gonna have guns, and robot cops, and flying ships, and al capone, and prostitution, and... just all the normal stuff of a noir film.
imagine a loading screen that loads a new loading screen.

Buuut does rape replace death or can players be killed off?

i think for this setting it'd be impossible to leave player death off the table, but in most cases, rape would probably replace death since i prefer to have my players live, at least for awhile.

So a while back I mentioned wanting to do a League of Legends-est RP. While I'm still working on the story (I was thinking of having players meet at a Tournament or online to play a simple round). What I have finished are rules for my fake moba and creating a champion. If I were to post those, would anyone be interesting in trying their hand at making one?

Sure, why not. I'm kind of curious to see what we can do with it.

Status of this RP? Also, it would probably be easier to work with if it was A MOBA RP, rather than specifically League of Lame, unless you're intending to do something with League of Lame lore specifically.

Yea I was intending a MOBA RP. I just used LOL as a convenient reference point. I know jack all about the game's Lore. I have the system written out along with a few champions drawn out. But I'm still thinking of the best way to show characters on the map. I might just make the maps and have rows and columns labels so people can say where they move to "i.e, Move Champion A from E6 to G4"

In truth I put it on the back burner for a bit because:

1: I'm going through of bit of a GM funk. Especially with my current game. I don't know if I could see it through.

2: I'm sort of stuck on what to do story wise. I was thinking of keeping the MOBA's Lore open ended so people could be free to create the champions of their liking. But the more test Champions I created, the more in-depth I had to make the game. I have about 5-6 "nations" and an option for characters from unknown lands. But I gotta actually write out what their backstory. Just enough so people have an idea what they're about.

There was also the story of the players who play my mock MOBA. I was thinking of starting out with them playing and online match then playing in a tournament at a convention. But I don't know if that would be enjoyable.

So started getting back into 40K and loving some of the new ork stuff.

Is there any interest in people wanting to play a 40K Speed freek/ Mad Max style game?

I've run a few in the past that were pretty successful.

Hey yall, I was going to give running a game another shot. Basically resurrecting one of my older ideas in a more functional fashion: Players will be split into two camps of Monsters and warriors of the Divine Order. Both sides are basically competing to restore their power and bases, after the loss of their respective leaders, before the other side does and promptly overwhelms them. Heavy corrupting flair going on. I aim for it to run for a while, but with the holiday season coming up replies will absolutely be spotty.
