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.

The place for RPs that aren't SW really is at HG Main.

I looked on HG main. There's an archived "Historical RP Forum" and a link to "Fantasy RP" forum. Not a very good options for someone who wants to do a WW2 or Halo RPG.

So, no, there isn't a "place" for "Non SW RP" at HG main, or anywhere else in HG for that matter. (Excluding the Fantasy RP forum, which is just as exclusive as SWU in terms of content and doesn't cover other Sci-Fi material, alternate history, historical, etc.)

That being said, this site doesn't need another forum. MEC may be a crappy place, sure, but SWU didn't always have RP'ers either. If you just work to form an RP community there, it will devleop probably along somewhat the lines SWU has.

Okay, no ones going on the probation list this time, my excuses are a mixture of illness and holidays, added to a failing memory, so everyone just get off each other's back.

And can someone tell me, is MW dead or not?

Persia does have a point of no concentrated RPG area, BUT it's due to the nature of the HG beast. HG is decentralized into the different heavens, each with it's own community of forummers. These forummers are most comfortable playing with themselves in their own forum. For example, there are RPs ("Stories") in the Stronghold,

When I was Cherub of the HRP Forum, I noticed that the main players were still those that came over from the HG Main History Forum, which we were clogging with RPGs. While we did get a few newcomers, very few joined our core RPer community. The same goes for the Fantasy RP Forum; you rarely see AOW2 forummers at the other heavens or HG Main.

Furthermore, IMO (and certainly not putting any words in the mouths of the HG management), I am not sure if HG is interesting in forming or centralizing the various HG RP communities, for pretty much the reasons that Crazed Ewok mentioned.

Solomon is totally right. HG has always been a fragmented community. Even when they came out with OD to try and bring the Heavens together, instead, OD is a place all it's own. In fact, it's considered so repulsive that they don't allow you access unless you're logged in.

SO, my advice for you guys, make Non-SW RPG's in the MEC. If you keep it up it could very well happen that's all MEC will have left. Just be glad you don't have to go to OD with your RPG's...

4 heavens everyday? As in everyday you're somewhat active in every single one? Because, if so, how? I had a 28.8k and even in my most patient and understandable moods just SWGBH seemed to take a lifetime. And I was only visiting SWU.

MW isn't dead.

EDIT: Has anyone noticed that there are SEVEN RPGs instead of being four?

EDIT2: Lazer, I call Miranda and Sergeant Johnson.

Quoted from Johnson's marines:

And Lazer, let's have the RPG in Jabba's Palace instead of MEC, that way the SoS and Scarlet can join!

Ok guys, I have two RPG ideas here, I won't be able to do them anytime in the near future, but I'd like to gauge reaction for now just the same.

1. The Old Republic Thread II: This would basically start off pretty much the same time OR Thread Remastered ended. I liked the story and I think it went pretty well.

2. Another installment of the Fallen Empire series of RPG's. Gameplay would be quite similar, but with some added tweaks. Any suggestions would be welcome and, of course, it would be up to the players which time period we use (Post-ROTJ or GCW).

Lazer, the list is done. It only has starships and aerial craft though.

Here's the format for it:

Capital ships:

Name of ship
Length
Weapons
Is it Slipspace Capable

Fighters, etc:

Name of craft
Weapons
# of Pilots
Is it Slipspace Capable

It includes the Covenant, UNSC, and the Heretics.

Well from what I've seen Fallen Empire is probably the pinacle of faction based RP'ing. Reems upon reems of information go into it and quite frankly I'm amazed Persia keeps up with it.

But yes, I'd join either of them. So would you like me to put them up for you Persia?

2. Are we all some wierd-ass experiment that you have cooked up in that brain of yours?

3. Will you remember that the being the mod of an RPG is not the same as being the mod of the Forum?

Hey FoO, I was wondering if you could do some editing for the Clone Wars.

For the first gold section, I was hoping you could erase this entire paragraph.

Quote:

The Republic won an early victory against the DROID ARMY on GEONOSIS, and now advances on the MIRGOSHIR SYSTEM, an agricultural world in the Outer Rim. At the same time, a Confederate fleet arrives over the..

And perhaps the Clone Wars Timeline as well.


And if you could update the Galactic Events page:


Current Situation of Galactic Events...
The war has come to CORUSCANT itself! The DROID ARMIES, led by GENERAL GREVIOUS, have penetrated the Core defences at DURO and are assaulting the capitol planet itself. Meanwhile, SEVV'RANCE TANN plots her assassination of Grevious in the middle of the battle!

On the ground and in the skies of the embattled capitol, Jedi and clones desperately hold out and await for reinforcements. The campaign under Master KIT FISTO was stunningly successful, and his fleet among others is enroute to Coruscant to relieve the besieged defenders under Masters WINDU and YODA.

In another portion of the Galaxy, COUNT DOOKU has located another piece of the Force Harvester, and has ordered NUTE GUNRAY to get it, from NABOO.

Will Grevious succeed in capturing the Chancellor? Will Sevv'rance Tann be able to assassinate Grevious? Can Dooku seize the remaining pieces of the Force Harvester? Join the battles of the Clone Wars, affect the outcome and find out!

Thanks dude.
