Assuming game mechanics on this are figured out (which they will be soon, I have faith) my one concern is that I see us either hopping fast enough to interest everyone and gaining abilities to the point of being "godlike" or alternatively, going slow enough to keep the abilities within reason but not seeing many worlds.

Well, I'm happy to wait and get my powers last, so its not a problem for me how long it takes to get there. I don't mind playing a relatively inept character amongst more powerful ones though, so that helps!

I think that - for ease of playability due to the fact that not everyone is familiar with every world - we should allow each player to choose their own powers rather than use those from a previous world in the next.

It seems like we'll have several characters for this game, so having a set amount of abilities and letting everyone choose from a varied list (of different power levels, but each ability list matching in overall strength) would keep it fair and balanced. If you believe 5 is too restrictive, we could raise it but I wouldn't go too high - if not everyone can summon pokemon and do chidori blasts then it makes those that have those abilities more unique and stand out as individuals.

Well to be honest I like a large variety but that's a good point about making the people more unique within our own group so a'righty I'm fine with it being limited like that then.

Sorry for the delay - I've been waiting on a few people getting back to me.

I volunteer to be the first GM - granted I only have a few worlds I feel confident enough to run, but I think I can do a good job getting things started.

I ask that all of those who are willing to be a GM for this game send me a PM here or through yahoo messenger and let me know exactly what worlds you're willing to run. All the GMs will have to converse with each other away from where the (non-GM) players can see in order to develop the plot.

I'll be coming up with a character skeleton ASAP.

The one other thing I'd like to figure out is a contingency plan in case a player or two stop posting. I'd hate to have the game die but I'd like to find a way to keep it going without punishing that one person if it is circumstances out of their control that is keeping them away from the game. Would everyone be OK with the idea that the GM in control of the current world we're in gets to come up with a temporary means of removing them from the game (For instance, if we're in combat they can be knocked out or put in a containment field of some sort) And, if so, what should be the max amount of time that we give a player to respond before we resort to these means?

I would also like to point out that some of the worlds we might travel to might bring up characters that disobey Elliquiy's rules. When this happens, we will have to alter the world or advance the timeline in order to have all the characters be a minimum of age 16.

Hope that makes sense to everyone. ^.^

Sounds good to me! I'm happy for the GM to put-aside inactive characters.

How come I'm just finding out about this now? It makes me feel like an idiot considering I talk to you on a regular basis. *grumps* Oh well, let me know if there's still room as some of these posts are wayyyyyy too long to read in the time that I'd like to (Also because at the moment I'm writing a post for a rp right now)


Edit: You probably know the list of Universes I am comfortable running, since I only posted universes I was comfortable running in that last thread for interest*

I'm thinking we'll have a base score system for abilities with each ability being able to go up to 5 points, playable. Anything 6+ points would be considered over-powered and not suited to a sentai group gaming experience (but OK for a "boss" villain to have)

In some worlds, an ability may vary. For instance, in the Avatar: the Last Airbender universe, someone's bending might vary from a 1 point to a 3 point skill.
  • As 1 point skill -  you cannot create the element but can control it when it is otherwise present.
  • As a 2 point skill - you ca create the element (pulling water from the air, for instance).
  • As a 3 point skill - you are a specialist and can control something like lightning or metal

Of course, this way Earth and Air benders have an obvious advantage (since their element should usually be around during play time) however, they have to decide whether or not they want to be at a severe disadvantage if they're in a situation where it is not. For instance, an air bender who spends 2 points won't have to worry about drowning so much as someone who only chose a 1 point skill.

Actually, I made a thread just for characters: http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=165005.msg7678532#msg7678532

That should work well for ease of access. Everyone should post theirs there so they can edit it later when new powers are added.

Here's the OOC: http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=165007.0

Everyone can post there as soon as you like. I'll be adding more info and souping it up as we go. Thanks!

Color me interested. I'm familiar with a number of these series though I'd like to also suggest adding One Piece, Cat Planet Cuties, Dog Days, Fairy Tail, Sword Art Online, and Record of Lodoss War. In the combat/fanservice ratio, I'm skewing 30/70 or 40/60 but won't lose interest with more combat.

I'd like to start this up but I'm afraid I need to hear back from a few more people who wanted to GM possibly. Commander, you're welcome to join us - just head on over to the OOC if you want to chat or discuss game ideas.

I will be creating my character and posting it in the Character Index thread soon (sometimes having one to show for an example gets the train moving) and I'll be contacting the possible GMS by PM if I don't hear from them soon. ^.^

IMPORTANT - I will officially be starting the game this Friday. (Sorry it took so long to get going, but I had been waiting a while to hear back from some people) Anyone who's still interested will have to have their character bio posted here before then and I still need a few people to contact me about GM stuff, but for the time being, I'm just going to jump into it with what we have and then we can build from there.

I do have another question for everyone, though:

If your character is from our world, would you like them to carry knowledge of certain worlds with them? This is how we ran things the first time around, with everyone keeping their knowledge of the anime worlds we traveled to as we went. It definitely gives us a helping hand, so we will either have to allow everyone to convey their knowledge through their characters or consider this "insight" a point-based skill as well (though, as it's specific, I would say it had a very low cost. Such as 1 point equals player knowledge of 2 or 3 worlds)

What do you think?

Just now found this thread and i'm signing up for this thing! Also the whole idea about people retaining their knowledge of past worlds sounds fun, at least that way they could even get back to one of those worlds and even live in it. Though i'm mostly talking about what could happen once the rp was done, a kinda thing to resolve things if you will :3 Also more than willing to GM to, gonna send the list of worlds after i make my char.

Well, I was just browsing the RP section, and this one almost jumped out at me.

I once participated in something similar, and I have very fond memories of that game.  As such, I'd like to put my application forward to this game, if you're still accepting players.  Seems quite interesting!

I have a quite decent anime grounding, so I'm mostly familiar with the works thus far presented, some more than others.  If I'm not, it's not a big deal, I can roll with the punches well enough.

Yeah, guys - I am so very sorry that I haven't gotten this started yet. I had been sick for a week (with sick baby too) and then there was a day that I couldn't log on no matter what I tried and then yesterday was a religious holiday for my family.

There is one good thing that happened due to the wait - we have new players! Hurray and welcome!

Sure.  :-)

I'm working on the opening post at the moment but it might not be up until tomorrow. I'm hoping the GMs can get back to me over whether they want it to be supernaturally or technologically based first, as that's the only thing I need to know yet. If I don't hear back, then I'll leave it open-ended for interpretation.

UPDATES made to the master world list on page 1.

It is now not exclusively anime - other fandoms have (and will continue to) made their way into the list. Therefor... we need a new title! Hope to come up with one soon.

This will be the last time the master world list warning will appear in the Interest Check - from now on it will be in the OOC.

Could you please post your character in the Index here: http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=165005.msg7678532#msg7678532

Also - you can choose to use power points now to purchase player knowledge of worlds from our list (1 point = player knowledge of 5 worlds/specific shows)
