Super Secret RPG Construction Project
« on: June 04, 2008, 04:36:44 AM »
So! I will be making another hidden board for people interested in helping to design and flesh out a game system and setting that is more relevant to Elliquiy's interests.

It will be based roughly off of the D&D 3.x SRD documents, enough that people familiar with d20 will find it comfortable, but I want to have it actually be its own system - ie entirely our own content.

The setting itself will not be rooted in sex so much as it will be very, very open about it. That is, it's a serious setting and won't get marred down by a lot of the silliness in other err... attempts, but sex magic will exist, and a number of taboo topics will get covered.

Please post in this thread if you are interested in helping.

Well, you know I'm in, as we discussed things over PM. Just a heads-up for people who might be afraid about arguing with a stubborn bitch about mechanics :D

*walks in and makes note of the copyright infringement that has taken place*

"Super secret" huh?

(wish I had a clue about systems)


Super Secret is a trademark of the Super Secret Clan of Recruiters

I'm fairly interested in systems.  Consider me in.  I can help out a fair bit with the mechanical side, although I might not be so keen on designing the setting.  My axiom is that when you have a good system, the players can write the stories.

If the working group can handle another opinionated female (*winks and grins*), I'l love to contribute.

I haven't built systems before, but I've played about a dozen systems, have a fairly extensive knowledge of various 'real-world' cultures and mythic/magical traditions, and have created three detailed game/fiction worlds.

I'd like to design a couple of the pantheons (Greek and Egyptian, for starters)

Now, this is an organization I can get behind. I may not contribute much, due to working on my 4e campaign, but I can definitely offer some insights and ideas.

I'm game. Best part of 20 years behind the DMs screen, and close on half that playtesting rules as one of GWs Techpriests.

So when are we going to get a hidden forum?

Or should we start getting to work discussing ideas in this thread?

(Wondering if he should work on drumming up interest and such)

The forum is made, I'm just laying out some groundwork for what I have planned (else everyone goes of on a tangent and nothing gets done).

Unfortunately I've been insanely busy lately, but hopefully will get it up before the end of next week (preferably a lot sooner)

I'm willing to contribute fair criticism, rules tweaks and some writing to this.
I'd also love to help with anything that relates to bondage.

Ooh ooh. Interesting.. is recruitment for this one closed or would you still be taking folks? :) Pleeease..

I used to wonder if Elliquiy could support something like this, thought it would be really cool if we did. I love systems and rules, to the point of having helped folks write up erotic-themed systems, spells, and items for an offsite game or two, though they're far too specialised for this probably. I can help on both the systems and settings.

Also have several pdf/docs of (some of) the current adult d20 game systems out there in case we need them. Which I can upload *blinkblink*.

I'd defenitely be interested!

I actually have designed systems before in my life, though nothing on grand scale.

I've never tried any 'system' building... but I do enjoy creating customized settings/worlds... I'm actually got one that I've been saving for 4th edition that I'm starting to slowly put together now. That said, I'm kinda new around here, so I certainly would understand if you want to keep things  to those a with a bit more history, but I'm defiantly interested and willing to contribute what I can towards this... it sounds like a very neat project.

Glad to offer any help, either system building or programming, both or anything else!

I've played and ran a few decent 3.x games... spent plenty of time reasoning out the "why" of all the mechanics to help justify to whiny players why I don't usually drift too far from the books... Then, sometimes the mechanics get in the way of story telling...

*ideas brewing...*

I was thinking about a not-dissimilar idea when I PMd on your "future of E" thread, actually...
Sounds like an incredibly robust character / story management system?

*begins drawing flowcharts...*

I have ideas to get out of my head now, before I lose them...

Forum made : )

I may add more as I prune people who don't actively contribute (or find that they can't) : )

I may be of some modest help as i have some experience with the Star Wars D20 and Saga system, AEG's L5R rpg and a few homebrewed systems the net disperses. So i might actually be some help. If not, i can only try.
