I'm a mega scifi creaturefeature horror movie fangeek, and I mean major (Although I like the newer creaturefeatures, sadly not your black and white costume films). And I recently attempted to join a roleplay similar to this idea, while I was in Fantasy/Medieval geekmode (I'm pretty widespread, as you can see). I was really interested in this genre, and surprised that I hadn't attempted to join or create one of these in the past.
What I am proposing is, as you can see, a Science-Fiction Creature/Alien Survival roleplay, similar to the movies I watch, but with a chance of everyone dying. I say this because, well, a lot of people would be like 'meeeeeh, everyone would live or the important people would and then it was over.' I am actually going to have the chance that important characters die, (And even what some would call "main actors" die). More than likely, I will play a character, but I won't make my character important to the surviving aspect (a.k.a. they won't be needed to survive).
Now, if I have peaked your curiosity, you may want to know the kicker; I have not came up with said creature/alien, setting, place, or time of the roleplay. What I will first need are 2 Co-GM's who are knowledgeable in this creature-feature genre, preferably they have Skype. If they have great ideas, I'll listen. If they want to be lazy with any of it, that's fine. I can be given any kind of idea and create a story out of it within minutes. Stories and characters are my strong points. Have a limited amount of time for completion? Oh, well, I just completed it. What these Co-GM's will mostly be doing is being a group that we can all bounce ideas off of, and maybe do some of the hard work. No just kidding, but seriously, we have to think about things. Like an example being are we doing combat by chances like dice rolls, or D&D style, or just realistic means?
Oh and, if anyone is interested, but not interested in being a Co-GM, go ahead and shout, it'll give me more reason to kick the OOC into gear. And don't think by not being a Co-GM you don't have a say. I can create any idea given to me into a reality, and a very epic adventure. And depending on how much story wants to be told, I can generally get it out within half a day.
So, all in all, if you have some sort of idea or interest on this, here's a generalization of what I have in mind for this roleplay. Depending on the time and/or setting of this roleplay, I will have a group of people start out, maximum being 15, minimum being 7. They will "continue on," or "venture into" the designated reasoning of the roleplay (What the characters will be doing, why they are there, etc.), and I will have the creature, or creatures, emerge, slowly, and most likely quietly, until the decision is made that it can take on the rest. This does not mean the first two or three interactions between player and creature means death. Oh yeah, sure, you can go ahead and survive from it. You'd just be letting it learn more about its prey. That's another thing I will be integrating, a learning aspect. It, or they, do not know humans, but eventually, it'll know how to murder, or eat them.
Notes: This will be 18+. This may be "Rated R." Character Romance will neither be discouraged or encouraged. Military, Civilian, V.I.P.'s, and civilian workers will be "classes," to name a few. (Classes are not restrictions, they are jobs/careers). There is a chance for your characters to die here, and players will have the choice of whether they wish to die at a certain time (Excludes certain death scenarios).
First: "Civilian Settlers"
"Cabin in the Woods" style
Blue Gender style
Robots, murdering, savage robots everywhere
(Idea titles do not mean roleplay titles)
Now, ideas I post, are merely summaries of the whole idea, not a full story or lore. If someone would like me to write out an entire lore, have another person also request it.
Anyone, not just Co-GM's can post ideas, and I will list them.
Once we have enough people who wish to join, I will have a vote on which story should be used.
I've also put this into the general Interest Check forum, I think it is better there, as this is not a roleplay interest check, more of an idea interest check (at this time).
People can choose to comment here, or over there, I will respond to both.
