Expressions of interest? Questions? Comments?
Let me guess... Muro?
I once did an Arcanum RP where we played ourselves (with different names) and we were sucked into Arcanum. We weren't particularly all gathered at the crash site but nearby Shrouded Hills. The idea was we would make our own way there and realise what was going on and meet up. We also had our favourite Living One as a bodyguard. Mine was Zanza the bare knuckled half elf.
... meaning you were all different incarnations of Virgil?
No not quite, we discovered where we were and eventually each other. We realised our only way out was to complete the main storyline, however it was not possible to simply go to Caladon and kill whats his name. It was interesting because some of us wanted to stay so we devised a plan to stop the others from succeeding. The RPG never finished but it did last a couple of months. There was also a larger number of players back then on the old sierra forum.
Might be interested, though not for the next fortnight. I have a rather large of amount of work to get done this and next week (speaking about that I should actually make a start).
Do you mean an RP game where we played through the main storyline, or one where we simply exist in the same world?
I guess the same world, different storyline. I'm just fishing for interested parties right now.
Seems to me that finding an online rpg is difficult, but finding any other community to play arcanum would be nigh impossible.
There are other ones, but the bunch of us are the biggest Arcanum-related community out there, that's for sure.
Should not we go on with the latest RP Mercenaries first?
We can play more than one game at the same time.
That said, I'm in.
Heavy 2 weeks of Uni work. Of you do start I'll be a late entry. I'm fine with that by the way.
Coool. Well, I guess we can make a game with that level of interest, but not for a couple of weeks.
The next fortnight is busy for me too.
Has anyone converted the game mechanincs into pnp rpg mechanics?
I assumed we could use the actual game mechanics... surely everyone has access to Arcanum? We can use it to keep track of character stats and to simulate combat in contested scenarios.
I like the idea. I'm in.
My curiosity borders on interest. I am more inclined to observe than to participate.
Any preferences for setting?
How about after the pc game finishes, with a selected Living One and game-endings as part of the history?
OMG Spoiler warning geez!
I suggest xp is awarded according to the number and quality of IC posts, to encourage participation.
I'd also prefer little-chapters of no more than two weeks, each with a specific quest and story-teller. A little bit of structure can make a lot more freedom.
On second thoughts, how about setting it sometime after the invention of the steam engine and before the return of Stennar Rock-Cutter?
The danger of a good-steampunk is how quickly the true gaslight era can be overwhelmed by gadgetry.
Thoughts, anyone? I'm volunteering as the first story-teller to get the ball rolling, so I guess I'll just take some decisions, unless there are objections?
