As-of-yet Unnamed Forum Game

Okay. I mentioned months back about having partially developed a game we could all play on here. I must inform all of you that it will require more to learn than simply coming on a voting. There will be chances for random events that affect gameplay and there are roles randomly assigned to participating members. These roles allow the player to use "actions" that can benefit or harm the village.

I'll use an online random number generator for all rolls.

Presently the game only has roles (similar to classes in a Role-Playing Game). I don't think I'll implement separate races, but it's a possibility. I'm debating on adding "Attributes" (on a scale of 2-5 where 2 is the lowest and 5 is the highest) such as Strength, Charisma, Intelligence, Dexterity, and Constitution which can be used to defend against harmful "actions" or help a character to successfully perform one of their "actions".

For all intents and purposes, the game will play similarly to a table-top RPG only I will be doing all the dice rolls to prevent cheating. (Someone could say, "Hey I cast Reanimation and rolled a six which passes.")

Right now I am assuming I'll be using a six-sided die for all rolls. A one will be a critical failure and something bad will happen to the player using the action. A six will be a critical pass and something much more devastating or beneficial will affect the player the action is performed on.

-=-=-=-

That's the gist of it now. I am telling everyone who is interested in playing that this will not be simple but it will be many times more fun than your average forum game. As such, you'll be expected to learn a little (but not much) about how the game works.

For example, if you're performing an action that checks a characters Strength attribute, it wouldn't be wise to do it against a Fighter Class character as they're likely to have a higher strength (probably five), so you'd have to roll a five or six for it to affect them.

The concepts for the game are incomplete so before I continue developing it, I'm interested to know who would be willing to play. If I can get enough players, I'll work on it in my notebook this weekend while I am out-of-town.

Who's interested?

Tis not my fault that you don't understand the basics of what Jason is saying, I've been tabletop role playing for almost 9 years now (obviously not as many as Jason), so I have some experience. What do you say to that Panda?

Re: As-of-yet Unnamed Forum Game

I'm drunk now but I plan on using some of this time I have while away from home to further develop the game.

Do any of you have any ideas that you might think would enhance the overall gameplay? I'll take them all into consideration.

Re: As-of-yet Unnamed Forum Game

pictures of our characters!

and, um. my pdoc put me on neurontin because nothing else helps me sleep. i started off at 100 mg and it didn't do much. so tonight, he said i could increase to 200mg, but i'm wating for matt to get in and it's really fucked me up.

my character's weakness is drugs

haha just killding

but anyways, yea, avatars are cool, and, well, i've never played a game like tihs befoer. i want to hear some idaea too!

oh and we can use real points. say, 100 at a time at least. and whoever gets whatever, has to give the other character the points, via banking. but we still keep up with like in magic. that would be really cool. and we should get a troply, like in the arcade, except i guess a gift trophy instead, with a caption saying what for
