Right now I don't have a very solid concept of how this rp will end up looking, or even if I'll be the primary GM, but this is what I've been ruminating on for the last few days:
Essentially the idea is a game based in the Starcraft universe probably either after the events of the last game (but not directly connected) or in an unspecified time for the sake of simplicity - I really hate screwing around too much which the main established plots of these sorta universes. :P
The setting would, tentatively, be a Terran colony (and surrounding area, bases,etc.) on a fringe world in the Koprulu Sector most likely based around a potential source for the psi-enhancing gas terrazine. The actual Terran operation surrounding this would probably be kept from the regular colonists. Given that this gas is of interest to them the zerg will have a presence on the planet - whether this is a recent invasion or they've been there a while I haven't yet decided, they may or may not have a a direct connection to Kerrigan, etc. Naturally - Zerg + Terrazine = Protoss getting in on the action.
Thus, ANY race is allowed to be roleplayed, even zerg providing you are sensible. The plot would likely have a fair bit to do with psionic powers and I've been toying with the idea of a Wrangler or two having arrived at the colony to investigate psi-sensitive terrans who've slipped through the net thus far. Infestation is an option too, either during the game or in a character's backstory. Multiple character's for zerg players would probably be advisable and probably none of the pre-existing characters :P
As for mechanics it would be based around this system:http://starcraftd6.tripod.com/
We can vote whether or not we actually make use of the dice-rolling aspect.
Also, importantly, I think this rp shouldn't be driven by a single omnipotent GM - Apart from anything else I really don't have that much spare time on my hands, to be perfectly frank. Rather all players would have a fairly equal impact on the game world and plot - just don't be a total child...
Ok! Now that I've chew your ear off - Anyone interested in making this a reality? Questions? Thought? Abuse? :P
Oh, and for those who aren't too savvy with the Starcraft universe and are a bit confused, fear not! There's a friendly wiki and I don't expect players to be experts: http://starcraft.wikia.com/wiki/StarCraft_Wiki
Interested. Any chance of being a robot?
Robot? Hmm, quite possibly - as long as it fits into the cannon well enough and doesn't end up creating power imbalance I'd say yes :)
o_o interesting haha idk if i'll join but im a huge starcraft nerd lol
HEY yer back Yotta! glad to see you posting again. I'm interested, as the last time I saw a SC rp it died in the interest check.
Yes, from outer space! :P Sorry about my absence - things have been quite literally crazy on my end :P Ho hum, glad to have some support!
And Zayze, I'm glad to have the itnerest of a Starcraft buff regardless of if you join (though I would LOVE if you would, naturally) - any ideas or advice you, or anyone else, can offer would be greatly appreciated.
Zay and I are in a 1x1 RP; and I like his style so far. I can say if you join Zay, it would be fun to RP with you in a group. :)
Don't worry Yotta; I won't autokill your character when theres a reason for your absense and you had the courtesy to answer my PM. That said, Isabella was auto-killed--may want to look for that post in my RP; it was quite brutal. But THAT belongs in my RP's ooc, not your interest check, so I digress.
Hope things start calming down for you, and glad to see you back.
Well, if I were to join, I'd definitely want a group of Terran's to accompany me. A group of marines, ghosts, firebats, whatever you wanted. Then we'd start out on a planet of sorts when the zerg invaded one of the sectors from Terran controlled dominion. The main goal would to survive, or escape the planet. Your choosing. Then later you would team up on different missions the higher-ups have ordered, (GM). I didn't really read what your setting was about, but I saw that you could be any race, so I would assume conflict between the roleplayers, which I think could turn out good as well. From what I've read you set it up pretty well. :D I hope it goes well, I'll definitely be around lurking, seeing how this is going along. :D
I hope so too frankly, heh. And I will try and trawl back through the rp so I can jump in if I get a chance.
Awesome, look forward to it Yocta. I'm torn between being a Terran or a Zerg character. I'd consider protoss, but I don't remember much about them--I might read up tho in the next day or so. Don't u dare abandon this idea Yotta, or I'll send you a virtual kick :p
