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.

-Cheapy the Hutt

-Flying Ace/Vader

-Bando_Gora/Gorog


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.

I personally think RoD would be a better idea because it was never actually tried. For example, EB had two runs, and OR had three. RoD barely had enough time to get off the ground before the moderator left. I say let's try something new before we revamp something old.

On that note, I would probably not want to mod any attempt to revive RoD - if I were to oversee another thread, it would likely be an EB sequel. I will, however, collaborate with whoever becomes mod for story purposes and would love to reclaim my old characters.

Hello everyone! I've got a special announcement.

As some of you may know, Melkor and I have been working on a fanfic based on the Advent of Darkness Thread.

Well, after conquering both procrastination and writer's block, we have FINISHED the massive work and have put it online. A thread officially announcing the work will be posted here soon, so be on the lookout!

As for what you were saying Persia and Melkor I'd definitely be willing to participate in one of those RPG's, because I admit I really messed up on Empire.

Although I'll say it now so everyone knows, I'll be on holiday for a week and I'm leaving in one week's time.

Similar with FoO, I really won't have the time to devote to a second RPG until exams are done in two weeks.

Well I say holiday, it is still a scholl trip of sorts. But I'll probably still do little or no work, should be great.

But Persia if you want to do them I'd put it up for approval now so it can start after exam season and get in a few good weeks before everyone goes on holiday.

Sorry to change the topic from whatever you guys had it on but, concerning the Clone Wars RPG would any of the old players be interested in returning to it? It has a devoted moderator (me ) so updates would most likely be frequent. But if you are irritated by OOC posts then maybe you should stay away...

Persia, when you reach signups stage, I'd be interested in having one of those clones (assuming the thread's format doesn't change much from its predecessor).

Mr. DarkBeing, welcome back. We missed you.

Now, I'm going to assume everyone will just take their character(s) from the last RPG, but please repost them anyway, just for simplicity's sake, in case I make a mistake.

Name: Rebirth of Darkness
Moderateor: Imperial_Persia
Plot:
A long time ago in a Galaxy far far away…

It has been nearly 250 years since the battle of Yavin IV and the destruction of the Death Star. The galaxy has known nothing but peace for the last 200 hundred years as the Galactic Alliance and the Empire have prospered under a peaceful truce. The Jedi Knights, once guardians of peace and justice have resumed that role and now flourish on the planet of Ossus, just one of their many enclaves.

But a shadow has begun to rise and cloud the force, an unseen foe lurks in the dark. 50 years ago, on the planet of Arkania experiments began that defy the very nature of creation. The Arkanian’s were long known for their art in manipulating the gene pool, but for once their arrogance got the better of them and they dwelled to far.

Joining forces with the Kaminoans, great cloners and craftsmen’s of the gene pool they began to work on experiments to create the perfect beings. Unlike others of the past they did not choose once species to be the basis for their experiments, instead they combined multiple species as was long thought impossible. They took traits from thousands of beings, the strength of a Wookie, the hypnosis of the Anzati, the mind of the Celegian, organs like the Givin allowing them to breathe vacuum, plus gills and the lungs of other species allowing them to breath nearly anything, the long life of a Neti, and the reflexives of the Noghri were just some of the many characteristics compiled.

For years they worked in secret until one day a break through was made unlike any other. But before they could share their news with the world their planet was destroyed. The galaxy was in shock as Arkania exploded and nearly the whole species was wiped out. Shocked and horrified they slowly forgot about the Arkanians and their work, though not all did.

On the planet of Korriban a lone Arkanian continued the work. He alone was a survivor of the original scientist who had been ordered to form these perfect beings. He had barley been able to escape with his life as the planet had been decimated. There had been one flaw in their design; the beings they had created were not sane. When the first ones had been released they had gone mad, falling upon the scientist they attacked with vengeance. But their power was greater then expected, and they were nearly unstoppable. But there was also another unseen factor; the beings were perfect in form, but also in the force. The force found no flaw in them and as they attacked as one they had released the force in such a magnitude the planet was destroyed, killing everyone including them.

But all of that was to change. The scientist hoped that by working on Korriban, a planet supposedly full of the force that it would help stable the minds of his clones. He was however gravely mistaken. As he worked in quiet the ancient dead were stirred and slowly began to watch him with interest. Using the dark side the ancient spirits began to manipulate the clones, turning them toward darkness and evil.

In the end when the scientist released the clones he was surprised to find them full of hate and malice. He tried to stop them but they were to powerful and he was destroyed. Finally free the five clones were met by the ancient Sith spirits who offered to teach them the way of the Dark Side. The clones agreed but it was only a matter of time before they rose up and destroyed their teachers, banishing their spirits once and for all into the Primeval Abyss. Rejoicing in their power the Clones began to look for a way off the planet, only to discover that they were not as perfect as they had dreamed.

Their power was connected, so severely that should they separate they would grow significantly weaker. Though they could not explain this they learned that together they were an unstoppable force while separate they were vulnerable and more easily destroyed. With this knowledge in mind they joined together and began to call out, using the dark side to call followers to them.

Their call reached many, including the Jedi Order. The Jedi were shocked by the darkness they felt and after pleading to the Galactic Alliance a force was sent to Korriban to find the source of darkness and destroy it once and for all. But they were not the only ones who had received the dark call. The Empire, once servants of Emperor Palpatine also felt the darkness and their hearts were stirred by it as they remembered the days of power under their Dark Lord.

The leader of the Empire ordered that ships be sent to Korriban to find out who was summoning them and rescue them, maybe they would be the leaders the Empire had searched for, for so long. Things could not have happened any differently as the Galactic Alliance and Empire ships came out of hyperspace at the same time over Korriban. The Jedi realized what was going on and scrambled to launch a ground force as they ordered the Galactic Alliance Ships to attack. The truce that had lasted between the two governments finally collapsed as the Alliance and the Empire engaged one another for the first time in two centuries. The Empire responded by attack plus sending out their own ground force, trying to rescue the Clones before the Jedi could find and destroy them.

War has once more descended upon the galaxy, what nations will fall and what ones will rise from the ashes? Only time may tell…


This is a character based RPG.

Of course you may have one of the clones DB. Now, with my one clone character, that leaves three left. Now, if memory serves, Melkor had one also, so I'm hoping you'll take that as well.

Thank You (Quick apology for offending the God of the SWURPG)

And I think no one will object to you having the clone that DSF vacated. I think that it will be you, Persia, Melkor me and... Hang on, who is the other clone owner?

Lord Vader:
Righto

I'll put it up now.

Cheers, although I must confess it is rather enjoyable to be, well quike frankly, rude to the most admired RPer of the golden age.

And I checked the old sign up thread, it was Kiev who owned the other clone, so I assume it is now up for grabs. And as for my characters, well, I'd rather create new ones, and reinvent the clone. As I look back on them I seem overly childish. *sighs regretfully*

Anyway looking forward to RPing with you DB, the first RPer who's return makes headline news.
