Community Outreach: what interests you

Post by Drow on Wed 27 Aug 2014, 6:20 pm

basically: what sort of genre and plot type do you like? What restrictions would you see in place? I've got a lot of ideas laying about, and I'd like to see where they'd go with this community.

I like more than just the one I voted for (Warfare), but it's just what I'm in the mood. Sci-Fi or some type of Infection/Horror RP would interest me as well.

You should be able to select multiple options, and so far, a certain RP that I've been running meets that criteria.

Anything as long as it's not RPG styled.

Looks like Sci-Fi takes the cake.

I feel like we should also express our opinions and provide explanations on as to why we believe in our choice.

It deletes the anonymity of voting, but it may also give everybody another perspective on the topic.

Please do explain your opinions and what you would like to see with your particular genre (as an example for the most popular choice, there might be a common agreement on, say, 'space pioneers' type threads, but I wouldn't know that). Feel free to note any other things you would like to see, too, are just general storytelling. (examples again would be, 'I prefer a manipulator-type villain' or 'I like shorter threads rather than longer ones).

Alright, I guess since nobody else seems willing to type one out, I will.

I voted for surreal/horror/2spook, and that's probably blatantly obvious since I love doing apocalyptic RPs. While I don't think it's exactly too scary, I think it still fits under the topic umbrella. Though in most of the RPs I attempt to make, I'd rather explore the diverse connections made in an area where there is no rules, no government, and essentially no leadership. Couple that with the zombies I love to throw in, it challenges the mentality almost all people have. Not only do you have to fear going out and getting killed by some bandit or marauder, but now you also have large numbers of cannibalistic beings who will either kill you or infect you if they can make physical contact with you. So I honestly think that it challenges the conventions of society, and it'd be nice to see how society would form after it fell.

With the votes on sci-fi and 'social collapse'...

Currently I'm running a skype RP with themes like this. The disease focuses mostly on the stress levels of both you and the infectees feel. The more stressed, the more chance you have at... transforming.

Immediately what comes to mind as an alternative is 'colony planet', maybe a mining asteroid type situation, with some void between colonies. The goal would be to 1) survive 2) probably summon help from the mother-planet.

Thoughts and suggestions?

Quite like the idea of a colony slowly rising on a rim world...

In theory, there will be multiple colonies. The question is what the scenery should be. The loneliness of a rocky vacuum with only little guide-lights to take you from one outpost to the next? Wild jungle full of the ruins of a collapsed, advanced society? Uncivilized waste dotted with rich mineral deposits and massive mining complexes? Or something else entirely?


Edit: added info

The general gist will be that it's isolated colonies that have actually done well for themselves up until now, but don't have a whole lot in the way of quick rescue if something goes Horribly Wrong (tm)

Without the risk of some giant robot coming in with a minigun... right?

@Drow: I think that a small blend of each one would be good. The guide-lights to take you to rich mineral deposits, ruins dotted everywhere...

Oh my god Maus, that's a great idea.
A small colony assaulted by massive human like creatures, maybe an abandoned settlement/colony that was originally inside a cave, but then they ran out of food and eventually turned to cannibalism and hnnnnghghghh

This could be so awesome..
