The RPG Calendar


Announcements

The RPG Calendar is closing down. Thanks for the good times guys.

DarkBeing and Melkor have completed their Fanfic based on the legendary Advent of Darkness RPG: The Advent of Darkness FanFiction

DarkBeing's Legacy: The History of the SWU RPG

FoO presents the Calendar's first offical, and rather silly, awards ceremony. It is now over, but I'll leave this here so you can chack out the winners if you missed it. Go on, have a look'see...

WARNING: Exam Season, RPGs may move slowly.

What is the Calendar? How does it work?

The Calendar is basically a floodgate. It is here to stop tirades of RPG's flooding the forum, then dieing, then there being a period where no RPG's exist.

To this end the calendar exists. When you come up with an RPG idea you submit it, then when enough have said that they're interested you go on the waiting list until there is a slot and then the RPG can begin!

How do I submit my RPG?

To submit an RPG to the community fill in this simple form

RPG Name: (The title of your RPG)
Moderator: (Your forum name)
Plot: (The plot for your RPG, this could be your title crawl)
Character/Faction Based: (Just put down character, faction or either if you haven't decided)
Number of people interested: (I'll fill this in as we go along. This field will be deleted when your RPG has reached 5 people)

Are there any rules?

Yes, these rules are not subject to change, but most are common sense anyway

-Follow the CoC, no spam, flaming, baiting etc.

-Constructive criticism only, don't just say 'I hate your idea', say how to improve it

-Don't just ignore the calendar, it's here for a reason

-Keep it friendly, and say if you're interested

-If you have a problem contact me, my email is friend_of_old@hotmail.co.uk

-To make things easier to run here I have introduced a colour coding system for important posts
Type RPG Idea... in Bold Red if you are submitting an idea
Type Interested in... in Bold Lime if you are interested in an idea
Type Update for... in Bold Orange if you want me to update something on the main post
Type Probation for... in Bold Yellow if you want me to put someone on the probation list (I will ask for reasons)

How many...

Yes there are limits to things:

-There will only be 5 RPG's at a time

-You need 5 people to be interested in your RPG for it to go forward

-You can have up to 3 RPG ideas at a time

-You can moderate 1 RPG at a time

Current RPGs

RPG Waiting List

RPG Name: A New Empire Part 2
Moderator: Gorog
Plot:
Two years have passed since the Battle of Endor. Imperial commanders and Moffs break away from High Command on Coruscant, while the remaining loyalists struggle to keep the forces of the Alliance of Free Planets at bay. However, while having a wide base of support, the former Rebellion lacks the military resources to take Coruscant.

In a surprise move, Alliance and Imperial leaders meet on the planet ITHOR. Drawing up a peace treaty, the delegates decide on a new government, transforming the Empire into a constitutional monarchy with the reinstatement of the IMPERIAL SENATE, led by a President appointed by the figurehead Emperor who has been elected by the Grand Moffs. MON MOTHMA is soon appointed to the post of President of the Imperial Senate.

However, some former Rebels refuse to recognize the Treaty of Ithor, and accuse Mon Mothma of having sold out the ideals of the Rebellion to assume control of the galaxy. These Rebels maintain arms in order to establish a true Republic. Similarly, some Imperial worlds denounce what they call a false Empire, and instead aid the Imperial warlords. As the new Empire and its Senate try to establish authority, the Galactic Civil War enters a new phase, manipulated by shadowy individuals with their own agenda...
Character/Faction Based: Character

RPG Name: Age of the Warlords
Moderator: FoO
Plot:
[c]After the disasterous failure of Palpatine's attempted formation of a unified Galactic Empire the Republic collapsed and the galaxy fell into ten years of darkness. Now three factions, the Thyferran Alliance, the Grand Directorate and the Azure Imperium have arisen and vy for control of the core worlds, using battered fleets with ancient clone wars ships and cheap cruisers, a shadow of the galaxy's former glory.

Over all of this the Church of Truth holds sway, binding the planets of the galaxy under its vicious doctorine. However one team of Directorate scientists on Kuat dare to defy them. In an attempt to create the ultimate weapon they unleash the ultimate sin, they unleash the Force.

Character/Faction Based: Character, with mnior fleet details

RPGs to be Approved

Moderators

I've decided to add this section so that people can see at a glance if their favourite moderators or friends are planning an RPG at a glance, or if they're on the probation list. Thus I'm assigning everyone a colour, if you'd prefer a different colour don't hesitate to ask.

Probation List

This is where a list of people and their crimes are put. If you are on this list it means something you have done has been deemed counter-productive to an RPG or the RPG community. Being on this list does not stop you creating RPG's through the calendar or playing in them. It is here to warn people of what you have done, so that if they don't want to run the risk of you messing something up half-way through.

Crimes include things like godmodding, flaming, spamming, quitting for no valid reason, etc. Basically anything that harms an RPG.

Darth Kiev: For abandoning ANE without reason, causing death of the RPG.

And no, you can't kick the Cabinet Secretary out of his job. That's why he's so powerful.

Godmodding, v. - to play God in an RPG without being the moderator, or without other players` consent. A common example of this is people trying to overly force a confrontation in favour of their character, usually unfairly.

e.g. a clone and darth vader decide to have a sparring match. The person who is RPing the clone makes a post which allows his character, even though next to impossible, to not only defeat vader within the confines of that one post, but to outright kill him. This is especially unacceptable if Darth Vader was being RPed by another person, or if the moderator has declared Darth Vader should not be killed under any circumstances. This is also true if it is implied.

Godmodding is a scenario in which a character takes on powers, attributes and abilities far beyond what would be considered acceptable, forces his or her own actions on another player, or disrupts gameplay with an overly powerful character that exploits its 'godlike' abilities to the detriment of the game and other players.* Most annoying is information godmodding, in which a character who should have no knowledge of a situation (usually by not directly witnessing it) instantly knows the smallest detail of the situation. Next are other forms of godmodding, which include attempts at invincibility, immortality, perfect skill and being impossible to defeat, controlling other players' or factions' characters, as well more Force-oriented forms, such as employing powers far above the character's power and skill. There is also a political form, wherein a character possesses the supposed total-loyalty of a planet or race.**

I would like to nominate Pacifica2 for the probation list for intances of obvious godmoding and then refusing to edit a post that the whole rest of the RPG has deemed to be unfair.

For your perusal, the posts leading up to the blatant violation, which incidentally all contain godmoding to one degree or another.

Post numbers 538, 546, 575 and 588

I am giving Pacifica until 12:00 PM Tomorrow GMT to edit his post or give an excuse (exept there isn't one), otherwise he'll be on the list until the new year. That sounds fair to me.

Ok, this is where I get an RPG idea approved right?
Mine idea is:
RPG Name: Clone Commando
Character/Faction Based: Republic and CIS
Plot:It is 2 years after the start of the Clone Wars. Thyre, a clone commando and his team have been lost
stranded and forgoten on the hostile world called Trandosha after their ship crashed on it's way to Kashyyyk. There are no Allies there, tons of droids and trandoshans are looking for them, and they've just enough supplies to make the five through the day.
Characters:
Thyre - 00854 A intelligant and Cunning Leader. He is a master at demolitions.
Rein - 00769 Is second to Thyre. He is an expert hacker and one of the best aims around with his sniper attachment.
Piete - 00768 Rein's Pod brother. He loves to blow things up with his Anti Armor attachment and can make a weapon or a trap out of almost anything.
Iere - 00564 He was once a Leader of a squad, but they got killed on Geonosis. He Loves to Hack into computer networks and sneak up behind droids and reprogram them.
Unilit - A pure bred killer. He prefers getting heavy weapons like Turrents and blasting everything hostile in his range.

There's nothing to ignore, the list is simply there to say 'Pacifica2 has Godmodded' for example, nothing more. It is other people who choose whether to act on that or not.

And Jango, two tips:
1) Read the title post in order to get the 'Submit RPG Form'.
2) You might want to broaden the scope of your RPG, five pre-set characters doesn't look like too mcuh fun.

Thank you and I hope you enjoy the beurocracy

Yes, Jango, but it is a good idea. Maybe you'd be interested in 'The Clone Wars RPG'? We had to put it in deep freeze because there wasn't enpugh characters/RPers.

And in deep freeze it is going to stay until a good load of people are interested. Come to think of it, we could get FoO to post a kind of perpetual sign up sheet on the Calendar. Anyone interested could say they would be willing to participate, and when we hit enough people we can re-open it!

Can you, FoO? Could you please? Maybe? Possibly? Enough questions?
