Probe :D (Interest thread- you choose)

Raynoson has his interest thread:

I'm following his lead and doing my own. A couple ideas with rough outlines wondering what other players would prefer. If you have suggestions of your own, feel free to bring them up.

Shadowrun
They are legends. They are dangerous. They are feared. They are to be avoided- unless you have one of them on your side. They are shadowrunners.

That title covers a variety of skill sets, from the accuracy to nail a target from a thousand meters away to the stealth needed to sneak into a tightly guarded environment and steal someone's files before they- or their security- know you're there. Runners know they need to use every tool at their disposal if they want to maintain that all-important edge on their competition.

Shadowrun takes place several decades in the future were cyberpunk and fantasy co-exist. Old forms of magic have re-emerged. Megacorporations control the lives of their employees and command their own armies. Technology advances make cyberware (mechanical replacement body parts) and bioware (augmented vat-grown body parts implanted in place of natural organs) common. The Computer Crash of 2029 led to the creation of the Matrix, a worldwide computer network that users interact with via direct neural interface. When conflicts arise, corporations, governments, organized crime syndicates, and even wealthy individuals subcontract their dirty work to specialists, who then perform "shadowruns" or missions undertaken by deniable assets without identities or those that wish to remain unknown.

It combines genres of cyberpunk, urban fantasy and noir, with elements of conspiracy fiction, horror and detective fiction.

I stopped halfway through the Death Valley game; this would be the second half, altered slightly into a stand alone game so that anyone could join.

Evangelion
At the dawn of the new millennium, mankind is besieged by the Angels- a threat unlike any faced before. Conventional weapons are useless against them. They can only be stopped by means of the Evangelions - bio-engineered vessels born from the Angels' own being. But this forbidden knowledge is also the key to bringing about a startling new genesis for the human race. Placed in the hands of it's young pilots, the final fate of humanity resting upon their shoulders, the Evas are the world's last hope.

Easily the best game I've ever DM'd, and had an awesome group.

Feel free to comment and question for details.

I very much enjoyed reading your Evangelion RP, and would love to be part of another.

While not a huge fan of Eva, I see the appeal in an rp of it, especially since you're possibly the one running it. /kissgmsass

Ah Evangelion, my very first game here on the Escapist *stares off into the distance, eyes glazed over, feeling nostalgic*

Yeah, I love ShadowRun, but I vote Eva for this one.

Maybe I won't be the secret boss-fight for this one

I miss your Shadowrun game, hiei. I remember the "Novatech Roof Massacre" (For everyone else, there was a part in his game where a squad of corporate shock troops storm the roof, but 6 of their men are possessed by insect spirits and become giant cockroaches that savagely killed the rest of the squad).

Good times :3

For an Eva game, where would you want it to be set? The last one was West Africa. We could do Indonesia, Britain, Australia....

How about something completely original? Set it in Greenland! SNOW FOR EVERYONE!

Oh god Britain. My ideal Eva would wear a kilt and use a giant, vibrating, claymore! I might even give it blue face paint just for the lols

Edit Yeah... I liked my Shadowrun game, but in the end I got in way over my head. Too many plots and characters for me to keep track of.

I remember being a part of that Eva RP for a short time and had to leave for some forgotten reason. I wouldn't mind trying my hand at it again, but on the other hand, I would also like to try a shadowrun RP as well. Arggg, choices, choices.

I remember your character! After you left he died, and was raised as my personal Frankenstein's monster!

As for the Shadowrun game, Raynoson is (supposedly) working on one right now so it might not be a problem.

And it better involve him saying "Ach! You call that an AT field" Then deploying his own.

That's one edict- your character would have to be a pilot. I wouldn't ask you to be the commander twice in a row.

I would love to bring back Ziggy for round two of that Shadowrun game. :)

Terratina.:

The return of Fedora man? That would be interesting.

I for one would be good for either. Shadowrun's always appealed to me, but I can't get my tabletop group into it. And I've learned a lot more about Eva since the last RP, so a new character would probably rape the lore significantly less than the last guy.

-Snip-

Nah, elvish-version-of-David-Bowie-on-crack man. It was fun playing as him.

That Evangelion RP was the stuff of legends :,D but I really want to do that shadowrun RP once more since I really didn't get to use my character all that much(if we can use the same character sheets)

Terratina.:

All SR elves are David Bowie on crack! In fact I think David Bowie IS an elf in-world

Yeah, the guy is pretty elflike already.

You and eyesonflux took out an aug by blowing up a fire extinguisher in his face and shooting him with a handcannon. That was something.

I want to do Shadowrun too. I left you guys on an island (in virtual reality) with no explanation. It's going somewhere, I swear!

Well, I like both, this made me dive into the shadowrun lore (my only experience was with the meh-shooter), and I would love to try out an RP.

2 for eva, 2 for shadowrun, 3 undecided.

Anyone else?

I'll go ahead and throw my vote in for Shadowrun. Give it a shot.

Alright everyone, thanks :D

Score is 2 for eva, 3 for shadowrun, 2 undecided.

The shadowrun game is already written. I'll write the eva game in the meantime and play it immediately afterwards. I'll try to make it as awesome as the first.

Welcome back, everyone. Once again I will take people's game suggestions. Still up for it?

Asclepion:

Maybe another go at the Tower of Druaga?

Don't think I ever got around to trying Druaga. (And unfortunate circumstances kept me from following up on the Shadowrun game that started. I'd be willing to try it.

I would be up for both. But as for the vote, I've got the shadowrun game sitting on my shelf and I've always liked more modern RP's so it gets my vote :)

Not that I know you or anything, but I'd pick Shadowrun. If you can pull off investigative game-play, I'd take that over another anime RP.

Oh wait, that was months ago. Man, I feel stupid.

Actually, I did want to get into that Tower RP. Seemed like fun. Would like to give it a try.

Evangelion, Shadowrun, Tower.

Got to throw my support in for the tower. Had a lot of fun with a tower rp ages ago and nothing has quite scratched that itch again.
Plus I always love the way the character creation is so open.
Finally SSoS is based what I would have done if the tower had lasted long enough for me to GM a level so I owe the idea my support.

Asclepion:
Evangelion, Shadowrun, Tower.

Are you still looking to start something? Cause it's been a while sine the tower was open (I think there was one a few weeks back but it was private). I've gotten some GM experience recently and the tower look like great practice. Also might have some ideas for interesting things to do with the concept.

So are you still interested in starting a game (even if it's not necessarily the tower)

My interest would be towards Shadowrun, though it may depend on the story.

I've written the OPs to Evangelion and Tower. It's between those two.

Cool can't wait to see them (I don't know anything about Ev to be honest). Also I've recently had an idea (you may have seen in the Dimension Gem) where players swap characters between episodes, it was originally thought up with something like the tower in mind. I understand it may not fit (and players can get attached) but I was thinking about a similar concept if I ever do GM a level, a sort of one off body swap or something for a single level(since my last idea went off and turned into it's own rp). Any thoughts?
