    Re: RPG Idead Brainstorming

    These are for the story RPG's. This a place to post any good RPG ideas floating around in your head.


    Everyone please ignore the typo in the thread name. I can't seem to correct it.

    Will we have separate adventures or one big thread? If separate would they all be in the same setting (I'm assuming Middle Earth, but setting as in what year) and can you specify?

    Alright. I need to stop this myth. We are not just a LoTR board. We are Fantasy. Therefor we will be dealing with Fantasy. Not all RPG's will be taking place in ME. As a matter of fact all adventures I believe (correct me if I am wrong Nienor) will begin in The Elysium Field. Each adventure will have it's own board approved by Nienor & created by me. Think of TEF as a portal to your adventures.

    Interesting. (And cool, BTW) Any specific rules we have to acknowledge when creating our characters, then? Or shall we just tailor them to the specific adventure we will participate in?

    No you will create your characters in your own thread; Think of it much like a character sheet for Dungeons & Dragons. You will do this in the Character forum. Just follow the Example of Nienor or Meteorain.

    Well, I mean if I want to create a background for my character (as Nienor did) then would it cause conflict in a hypothetical adventure where my character was born on the wrong planet or something? ^_^;;

    No because you are all from Elysium or some part of it. Think of Elysium as your place with whatever you want it. It is your world. We are trying to create some of the most "organic" rpg's around.

    Very nice and organized... Are there any specific places, races, classes, etc. to take note of in Elysium when creating our characters?

    Nopers. Whatever you want. We do not want to be too restricitve when allowing you to create a character. Remember though you might want to create a guild out of a certain number of people who share the same race.

    Sabishii, you can be as creative with your characters & RPG ideas as you wish. While I'm fairly sure we will have a Middle Earth RPG, it would be great if people had some other fantasy ideas. I happened to start with a ME character, because I have used that one in other recent RPG's. The only possible restrictions could be "not playing God". For example, if all the other characters are elves, men, dwarves in an RPG, then it would not be fair for one character to be Eru or a Valar.
    Outside of that, use your imagination to create any fantasy characters and places you desire. Your profiles can always be updated in the future, to suit any RPG. :)

    Each RPG adventure will have it's own subforum containing the RPG and an OOC thread. So it is easy to locate a person's character profiles; they will all be located in the same place, under the member's name.

    Folks. You are missing the entire scope of the RPG's we are doing. Please check out my thread that I have stuck in this area pertaining to RPG's. Thank you.

    I'm hoping we can start with a kingdom or two of good creatures (elves, men, wizards, etc) and one kingdom of evil creatures. Since I'm looking for a change in RPGing. Later I'm going to propse an dark Kingdom and hope to have a few people join me. :)

    Why, plan on being a loyal subject, Turin? Muwhahaha. :balrog:

    Seriously though, I was hoping someone else would suggest a kingdom idea also. Once I get the idea slightly more concrete than it is now, I plan on suggesting a kingdom.
