... How would you guys like to see it done?

I went through the thread in the mod room where we first made up the last RPG, as well as the RPG itself, and one of the major problems seemed to be that we tried to do everything ourselves without much input from anyone else.

So were there to be another RPG, how would you like it to go? Setting, rules, storyline, etc.

Right off the bat: Hybrids will be allowed, and the 60+ point rule is gone.

Well we have very few Aliens right now, so we would need to justify the lack of them in the RPG. I'm thinking it would have to be somewhere that doesn't have a hive, maybe not even a Queen anywhere nearby. Most credibly the Aliens would be escaping from some testing tubes or something. Also, in the last RPGs since the new clans appeared, i think there was too much collaborating between clans of the same species, so the story should be set that we are all enemies. It was like "Preds, you want to do that, Humans, you want to do that, Aliens, you want to do that." I liked it more when it was like "This clan wants this, this clan that, this clan has to do that etc." I know i'm talking here about really dead clans, but i'm thinking it would give people a better sense of what a clan should mean.


I don't know if i remember this right, but you need a leader or subleader to confirm that the clan is joining for it to join, right? So you should probably see which clan is able to join and write a story for those clans to play out and everyone else can join solo, or so, right? Ah, fuck it, this is ridiculous, we have too few people left.

Give me a good story and I'll duke it out to the best of my ability. Just please, do not limit the number due to requirements. I find that unfair for those who are at the rank points of 25 to 45. That is potential not being tested in my own oppinion.
Plus, it has been awhile since I had a good Sci-Fi RPG. Other sites that I have scouted are just too darn boring and exaggerate on certain things...

Just get a good story going and if I have the time, I'll jump in to give it a shot of a wonderful whirlwind.

It seemed a lot easier to rpg when we didn't have the rank points, I really pefered it. I really like to delete all the bullshit rules we have now because of the rank points.

It wasn't till recently that P added them, and we had a ton of fun in rpgs before hand, never had a problem. Maybe we should start making rank point irrelevant in rpgs?

Truely in agreeance with getting rid of the Rank Points. The Ranks themselves however are good. (ie. Newborn, Veteran, Elite) It shows the amount of time, or, how mature they are. More or Less.

The Rank Points has nothing to do with the darn RPGs in the first place, except to show others which that certain character excel at. Also, I find myself more in hand-to-hand engagments than with a fire fight with a yautja however, so there for the Dexterity of my character does not come to par, except his hits 9/10 hit the opponent. Once again, the opponent never takes this to consideration so what the hell. Rid the darn Points. Rank is alright, but the points got to go.

I completely agree. Rank? Completely fine, it is a good indicator of who's put in the time for the site, and it helps keep clans running smoothly, but it just wrecks RPG's.

I'm all for ditching the points in RPG's, and making it just good ol' role-playing skill.

As for any upcoming RP, I'm down with DW's idea - gotta explain the lack of bugs. Test tubes theory is good.

Have we ever done an RPG inside a research facility? Or we could just decide WTH and go with the good old AvP 1 Pyramid-style.

I don't know, i like having the stats, it feels more classy. But i agree with removing any rule that says you should take them into consideration, because in the end it all comes down to what the members who are fighting agree on.

I KNOW:

Keep the stats, but remove any rule that says they impact on RPG. Instead, keep 'em as...guidelines.

So people can see at a glance what your character is good at in comparison to his weaknesses.
