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

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.

Each sector of the galaxy has its own board, so you would post something like "Chalmun's Cantina, Tatooine" under the forum titled "Outer Rim". Then, if someone also wants to roleplay at that location, they would post in that thread later on instead of having to make a new one. The only tricky part is roleplaying on ships - when a ship moves, you have to post where it is going and PM the admins and ask them to move the thread. IE, one of my characters has a Class 720 freighter that started at Nar Shaddaa, but he went to Corellia. So I asked Ams to move the thread titled "Star Raptor" from the Mid Rim to the Corellian System.

Does that clear it up a bit?

@Bando: The Galactic Union isn't the same as the Galactic Alliance. Factions still exist within is, such as the New Republic and Imperial Remnant. And no, the Rebellion is not still going on. And as for two different Empires, read this and it may clear things up for you.

Well, yes. Seems a bit strange, but I'll get used to it eventually

Is there room for a New Republic naval officer? And if so, what ships does the NR use these days?

I'd like to command some of the New Class ships, since their introduction seems realistic in the timeline, what with a total war going on for 7 years in the time frame they were introduced OTL. Would that be possible?

Oh sure, I don't mind you guys conspiring to commit adultery with another board on my calendar, sure, go right ahead.

Besides, the only characters I can play well are Jasem and Hemmorzins. The ISS would be difficult to introduce and only you guys would be willing to put up with a Hemmorzin.

There is, however, one point that needs to be made about Unity. It is 100% assetless. That is to say, it is not Clone Wars or Legacy of the Force, with one side having X ships and the other having Y ships. Each faction is not given a list of ships, it is simply imlied that they have some. Same with money, troops, etc. Unity is not a wargame: it is a roleplaying board for the soul purpose of writing enjoyable stories, not competition between characters for the best fleet (Although there is a separate forum in the Off-topic section for that). Behind-the-scenes cooperation in order to better one's plots is highly encouraged. We're aiming for drama, not the title of 'Best Character.' If that doesn't make sense, look up the threads titled 'Cantina Plot' or 'Iego Plot' in the Assessment room. They're de facto planning sessions for interaction between characters.

But if you start to worry that there won't be any epic battles, fear not, for battles we shall have. However, most outcomes will be decided upon beforehand, and if a decision cannot be reached CMAC will make the final vote.

And yeah, you can probably command a ship from the New Class, Fyyar. Although what we really need ATM is more officers for the True Empire under Daara Zend. I think the total count at the moment is 2.

I'd be more than happy to have Alister fight for the True Empire. If a certain ship is given to him no questions asked

CMAC's much more lenient in this game, so there's a good chance Mako can have his flagship. However, you can't be a renegade in this one. You need to follow orders to the letter.

Well if this True Empire is exactly like Palpatine's Empire save for it being lead by Palpatine himself, then there won't be any problems

Fyyar, I've been reading Wookieepedia, and according to it Galak Fyyar was still alive in the later half of 12 ABY, meaning that in Unity's timeline, he should still be alive. Old, albeit, but still playable as a character if you want him.

Well, then dear old Galak saw the light, and joined Zend in her crusade against the naive democrats and filthy traitors!

Also, would there be room for a politician of some sort, so that I can have some fun lying and cheating?

Lol! I didn't see this . I found it by myself, guess all I had to do was 'CHECK THE FREAKING THREAD!!!'

I already have four characters, and I can say that I'm extremely excited when things get kicking.

You know, FoO, the galaxy will be pretty unstable when the True Empire returns...perfect environment for some chaotic Hemmorzins to carve out their own holdings.

I mean, theoretically...

Guys, I'm thinking of closing down the claendar. After all, I don't see a flood of RPGs to regulate, do you? In fact, I doubt we even have the players left to approve an RPG under the current system, let alone keep one going.

We've had a good run guys, but without something incredible I think the end is well in sight. I'd like to say it's been a pleasure, and hope you all find pastures new, maybe with Unity, maybe elsewhere. As for me, I'm not sure where I'll go, back in my cupboard probably. I know, as far as SWU goes it all sounds morbid, but it has been silent as the grave around here recently.

If anyone has any brilliant ideas, please feel free to go ahead and post them, you don't need to go through here any more. No point in a regulator with nothing to regulate.

Thanks guys, I'll be around.

FoO.
