Title says it all. I was thinking that for now we could start with a more low brow, adventure RP, and when we get more members, move to something a little more epic.

Of course, low brow does not mean that we can neglect rules, or have small posts, but you know, just not a horrifyingly fantastic story.

Perhaps just something to get the ball rolling. How about one of takes on the role of a client, and the other two of us are mercernaries? We can come up with the point of the quest together.

Yeah, something simple to start off.

But it has to be something worth doing... like what though?

Here, let's decide on a genre.

Fantasy? Sci-Fi? Modern? Historic?

Yes, that could work. I was thinking about making my RP that I discovered was probably too gritty for Battleon, City of the Damned. But we would need at least 6 people.

Ooh. I vote historic. How about something with pirates and finding treasure somewhere?

Posting at the same time as me. >.<

Why would we need at least six people? What's it about? Perhaps we could replace Characters with NPCs to fill out the minimum?

I have always been quite fond of the Victorian Era. Or the Industrial Revolution. =3

Industrial Revolution DOES sound cool to me.

Mix that in with Historic stuff.... we'd have an RP.

I think the setting should be in a world where industry is taking over, large factories and whatnot. You know, the time before cars.

We'd make it a fictitious world - that way we could have our own pre-made cities and stuff.

Throwing this out there: Guns.

Something that irked me about Battleon was the lack of guns!

How about a Steampunk Victorian Era story?

I like how the layout is now. :3

Alright, because guns change the entire story, a lot. I was leading a private Facebook RP that was steampunk, and it worked very well, and the universe was not as filled with holes, as the AQ universe is.

Guns would be sex-tacular.

Also, while we are all here, I think I'm gonna beat a dead horse. (I read what you put under 'humour' on your profile, Dani. I can see you giggling to that.)

Although it didn't come to mind, perhaps we could have guns in the Guild also, if we intend to revive it here. It'd make things grittier, and I need all the grit I can get up in Nero. We can fudge timelines to meet our standards! :3

Back to the topic at hand: I like Ghost's idea for a setting, now we just need a plot and conflict and whatnot.

Plot: we are military deserters, who are on the run from the government. We begin to steal, as our morality falls into the toilet, and soon, we are incapable of telling right from wrong. We descend on a village, and start pillaging it, and then, we retreat into the woods, where we will be under almost constant attack from military personal, who intend to kill us till we are deader than fuck!

I am editing the forum as we're posting.

Didn't get the result I wanted... still experimenting with it.

It reminds me of Grand Theft Auto.

I FREAKING LOVE IT.

I was thinking more along the lines of a Civil War or Revolutionary War era.

But this is fine with me, you guys go ahead and make an RP, I will participate in them.

Great, because I just pulled it out of my ass.

Ghost, I recommend grey backgrounds, with black titles, and red lettering.

I was thinking maybe a revolutionary war era too. 17th or 18th century tech.

Well Dani that'd make it look 'evil'

I was aiming for a neutral feel, you know.

And welcome Scion!

A lot of the people I messaged haven't replied or joined these forums.... heh?

I am in love with Fallout 3 at the moment.... possibly...?

I got an idea in mind!

Blah! Well, if you are going for a more neutral feel.....black, white and dark gray? Those are all neutral colors.

I don't know... I'll just keep it simple for now.

Maybe Nightly can swoop in one of these days and mess around with it.

I like the idea of a retro-war game, much like the setting Fallout was in. A steampunk war game you know, that'd be pretty cool wouldn't it?

My favorite thing ever: Custom Guns!

I was thinking about this:

Wastelands - A post-apocalyptic free-roam game.

Eh, Post-apocalyptic is so over done. But, it would suit our needs.

The entire earth has been blasted to nothingness, and only the strong have survived. The second generation has been born, and most of them are either very weak, deformed, or freaks, as in they have been born with little to no humanoid features.

The second generation has turned against the first, and they are more numerous. They have adapted well to this world. Our characters would probably be in the age range of 25 to 50, because they have kids of their own, who are going to turn against them first.

Resources? Guns. Cannibalism is popular among the second generation, and food is very scarce. Water has to be tested as most of it is undrinkable. Your character will have to find food once a day, and even then, it should be very little. Failing to do this will result in death.

Well, that's a new one. I'm not really into retro wars and the use of guns, namely because I am not very knowledgeable about either. I've never played Fallout or GTA, or anything of the sort.

As for Dani's post-apocalyptic idea...I don't know anymore. I guess I'll go along with what we're doing. I'm really sorry I've got nothing to add at the moment. I've still got to adjust to the sudden loss of regulations.

Yeah, but the loss of regulations will only liberate us. Keeping in that Universe was both hard, and slightly annoying. =/

Liberation from chains...Nope, still nothing. I'm leaving everything to you all.
