Gauging interest for forum game
I'm in the progress of making a WoD forum game for kicks and funs. The basic idea is that each player takes control of one fleet and together try to stave off the invading hierachy fleets. With new turns happening every 2-3 days.
I'll go into more detail as everything solidifies but right now I'm trying to get a grasp on how many people would be willing to take part in this.
Urutorahappī!!

Re: Gauging interest for forum game

17:37:11   SpardaSon21: even the males?
17:37:22   Quanto: its not gay if its an elf

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Re: Gauging interest for forum game
Okay so I did not expect this much interest! So let me expand a bit more on how this will play out:


Here's the starmap on which the game takes place. The Hierachy will bring in fleets from Kardoen and invade with the end goal being Sol. You, the players, will each take control of one Terran fleet (5 factions, each with some slight differences) and coordinate with each other to repel the alien invaders.

New turns will be each 3 days, each new turn there will be reports on fleet movements and how battles went (yay for embedded youtube support). Then you'll be able to give new orders to your fleet. Perform excellently and you might get promoted, giving you a choice for a new trait that will improve your fleets performance. Make no mistake, the Hierachy will be relentless and your ability to resupply your fleet to keep it in fighting condition will depend on the global resource pool available. See that number next to a star system? That's how much resources a system is able to contribute to the wareffort. Losing those key systems will hurt and will have negative effects on fleet morale.

More info and instructions on how to actually play will follow once I have completely worked out all the details (and have confirmed it actually works).

Re: Gauging interest for forum game
I am very much interested in this Spoon!

So we get a fleet each and give orders then you control the enemy fleets and set up and fight the battles or something and upload the footage to youtube, is that how this is going to go?

Re: Gauging interest for forum game
Sounds neat. +1 participant.
"We have now reached the point where every goon with a grievance, every bitter bigot, merely has to place the prefix, 'I know this is not politically correct, but...' in front of the usual string of insults in order to be not just safe from criticism, but actually a card, a lad, even a hero. Conversely, to talk about poverty and inequality, to draw attention to the reality that discrimination and injustice are still facts of life, is to commit the sin of political correctness. Anti-PC has become the latest cover for creeps. It is a godsend for every curmudgeon and crank, from fascists to the merely smug."
