MechWarriors - Interest Gauge

Post by BurgerWarrior on Thu Aug 21, 2014 11:03 pm

Oh look, I'm back already.

So after learning several lessons from the whole Captain Nathaniel 'Wrecker' debacle, I'm going to give running an RP here another shot... from the other end of the time spectrum.

One major thing I realized was that I really didn't make things equal between players - a couple were stuck on the boring job of working cannons, if our one tiny player had tried fighting she'd have been able to do little to nothing, and later on as giant players came in, they were going to end up a tad overpowered...

So, the ultimate fix, in my opinion? Mechs. :V

And then, of course, giants just get hard-/exo- suits to make up for that.

-----

I've got a general story already worked out in my head, so I'm just wondering who'll be interested this time around. I am going to really try not to get angry at you guys over relatively minor issues like grammar, but there is the matter of post length. In short, sentence-long posts are an absolute no-no for this. You're going to have to sit down and think for a few minutes every time you post in this RP, because I'd like a paragraph (five sentences) minimum. Though if English is your first language, I really expect you guys to proofread your stuff before you post. To me, it's just a given.

Anyway, if you're prepared for the 'hard' life of writing on a hopefully twice-a-week- but probably just weekly- basis, and you think you'll be up for a sci-fi setting, please let me know ^^

(And yes, those who are not whitelisted on the server can join if you want, in case you were wondering - but it'd be nice if you are or tried to whitelist ^^ )

Sounds interesting =] a nice synergy of giants and tinies in combat ^_^ also love the sci-fi setting =P

Question? can you have other races besides human as well? (totally not thinking of lizard again xP)

Also, a lot of Forum RPs players seem to have disappeared from the server ._. so if not many people ask to join, its not because this RP is bad.

Aye, I've begun to notice less former forum RPers around, but to answer your question - of course yes! What's sci-fi without aliens? Razz

This actually sounds pretty cool. Was kinda disappointed that Captain Nathaniel's RP crashed, but these things are bound to happen. Not many people seemed as interested in that as they were originally.

The only problem I'll worry about is creating a character. Luckily, Shadow gave me some stuff to help create one! This should be fun... in fact, fun enough to start building one now...

The Sci-Fi setting's going to be great (hopefully). I've been waiting for one of these, as it's more my style. All of the high-tech stuff, the weird beings inhabiting the area... Nothing gives more freedom than creating aliens and technology from other worlds! ^w^

This peaks my interest, it's a shame the last one failed. I am willing to start planning out my actions before the typing phase as to have more to say. I would like to warn you that I sometimes get a little depressing or dramatic during Role plays (I have made my friends cry before...) and I always love some good combat.
Therefore I am excited for this role play and hope all in it will have fun.

Heh, thats good! =P im always tired of everyone being so nice and everything being so freindly and happy in RPs xP life doesnt work like that.

Especially in the Nathaniel Roleplay, everyone was too nice xP there was no conflict, and you need conflict to make it interesting =P

Well, that's three... Unless you guys all plan on playing two characters, though, I'd like to see one or two people more show interest, and then I'll really set things in motion.

(Thanks for showing interest at all, for that matter.)

Um... Hai.

I like the sound of this rp, but my problem is I don't often get long spaces of time for posting big paragraphs frequently. This might limit my amount of activity in the roleplay.

Otherwise I'm up for it! Cool sci-fi adventures and weapons sound good!

Oh, sci-fi. This seems really interesting.

I would like to join in on this, yeah. I know I just drifted off in the Captain Nathaniel Wrecker RP, but pretty much because I wasn't too content with my character and I guess I just wasn't ecstatic about a pirate RP. This though, I like, and I'll be more intent for sure.

Though of course, school is starting, and then I only have access to my mom's computer(The same reason I haven't been on the server in a while), so it may be a bit harder for me to always post, but I'll try.

Yaaay my summoning magics are working. .u.

Anyway, school is starting for me this week, though I don't think it'll be too strenuous - usually it's just reading syllabi and completing easy quizzes. So: I could post sign-ups ASAP (probably tomorrow, maybe Monday or the day after at latest), or I could wait until next weekend after I've got my schedule (hopefully) sorted out. But then I'll probably be busier during that week.

Then again, that shouldn't affect much. Is it easier for you guys to start sooner or later?

School is an issue for me as well, but if you at least want a weekly basis, then I could probably join in on the weekends.  Hopefully I design a character more useful than a hobo this time. Wink  I also like the mech idea.  It kinda makes me think of Pacific Rim.  Razz

...Just so you guys know this didn't abruptly die, I've more or less got sign-ups ready to post, and I'm just waiting on you guys telling me when it is a good time to post them up Razz

Also, Rad, I'm going for a smaller, faster scale than Pacific Rim. Think any anime with mechs, Hawken, MechWarrior, etc. That's the kind of pace of combat/size of mechs/scale of battles I'm going for with this.

I'm honestly indifferent about when the Sign Ups should be posted. Any time is fine for me. Razz
