So I have a bunch of ideas. I'm willing to try doing more than one of these. If you're interested leave a vote in the fancy little poll thingy and post so I know who is interested in what. I'd like to use "High Free" in all of these, so basically a middle ground between Free and Casual. I believe it was in an Alice in Wonderland RP where I saw this, but it basically means do at least three sentences and have good grammar/spelling. I am definitely willing to take suggestions for any of these ideas.
First a slightly morbid one... Also the most developed idea, methinks.
Ok, this one a little morbid methinks. So, world plagued with eternal night or whatever, people do stuff it's great.
But... you know steampunk and the other punkpunk genres, right? What if everything ran on death? Machines using blood as fuel, bound souls controlling trains, throwing corpses into grinders... And then throw in some necromancy and blood magic and [s]magic makes it all complete[/i] skadoosh, corpsepunk!
The world of Nightfall is dark, in many ways. Zombies, ghosts, vampires and the like live normal lives living among the living and necromancers and blood mages often run for mayor or the many independent townships spread across the surface (and below!) The dead are restless, and those that stay dead are highly valued for four main components: their body, their heart, their mind, and their soul, all of which are valid sources of power to run the grinding machines and spirit engines and blood runes used in everyday life!
Basically it's a sort of morbid steampunk-esque fantasy setting.
And now I do the unspeakable... A pony roleplay! Well... Technically two.
Mah Leetle Pones: Frensheep iz Majik
I don't have a title for this one, but I kinda want to do an RP similar to the show: A group of friends band together to learn life lessons and do friend stuff.
Or this stupid fanfictiony idea about some gassy thing dubbed "monochrome" that covers Equestria's lower parts and does Bad Stuff in the form of draining ponies of color and emotion and rendering newborn foals "featureless" so they have none of their races special things (earth pony nature-y stuff, unicorn magic, Pegasus flight/weather control Most ponies live high up (like around Canterlot Castle) and in cloud cities to avoid the monochrome. Also some airships and steampunkyish stuff.
Another thing that's technically two things.
Post-Apocalyptic Open-World Survival and Faction Wars
So first an experimental open-world survival type dealio. This would be a group and use a sort of map-based system so each thread is a different area in the world. Character interaction would be relatively small compared to most RPs, but that could change depending on the players. There'd be a little Lovecraftiness in it and a big part would be exploring and finding out exactly what happened.
The Faction Wars one would be based around the players making up gangs and fighting it out for resources against the other gangs. The origin of this apocalypse would be unknown, but I want to have some mutations and bionics happening. Modern firearms would be relatively rare so most weapons would be makeshift weapons, both melee and ranged. Military grade stuff would be nigh-impossible to find. Expect people fighting with crowbars and pipe rifles rather than assault rifles.
Or just be "WHAT THE HELL LETS DO "BOTH" OF THE LAST "TWO" IDEAS!
Fallout: Equestria something or rather
Exactly what it says on the tin. Not sure what it'd be about though. Maybe we're traders or something?
And a exploration thingy set in the ruins of some hyper-advanced ancient civilization. Comes with cheesy name!
Akaria: Ruins of the Past
An exploration themed RP about a small group sent into the ruins of the hyper-advanced civilization of Akaria that ruled the world for ages before the current (medieval-ish fantasy) society. The players fight technological monstrosities and discover the dark secrets about the Akarians... And about the players too.
A group-based RP featuring competing groups of adventurers participating in mostly-friendly competition with eachother.
The Adventurer's Guild
The players make up adventuring parties, usually four in each, and go dungeon delving, bounty hunting, bandit slaying, and pest exterminating. Really a series of short RPs set in the same timeline, each one being one "adventure". I kind of want to give it a small structure, probably based on the Roll to Dodge system. There'll be classes and races, each with their own special abilities.
So yeah, 8 ideas. Jeez.
