Post Apocolyptic Interest Check [NC]
« on: April 06, 2009, 05:20:59 PM »
Nevada Rising

I've been mulling this one around, and like any good author I don't put it to paper unless I can come up with a snappy title.

Here's what I have so far.

In 2012 North Korean sleeper agents assassinate the new U.S. President as he was giving his inauguration speech at the White House. He detonates the world's first cold fusion bomb. A greater portion of the D.C. area. Following this blatant act of war the North Koreans invade South Korea, crushing Seoul in twelve hours. Reeling from the blow the U.S. and Great Britain invade the Korean peninsula.

Intelligence suggested it was new North Korean Dictator Sun-Il Park. It's the first world war of the new millennium. Libya unites Africa using North Korean aid. Attacking Europe over the Mediterranean Sea. Japan's radical new parliament reinstates their emperor Hideki Yomotomo a brilliant politician with the vision under the guise of helping the U.N. they create the Korean Offensive Army, and initiate Operation Nine Tailed Warrior claiming much of Asia and Australia as the foundation for their new empire.

Without the major powers intact the world soon escalates to nuclear and cold fusion conflict. Destroying much of the world in blue and green flame. By 2034 the world was over...

The first to rise from the ashes was Britain starting the Order of King, Japan still held onto its new empire. America, America was in chaos. Anarchy ran amok. The most active area is Las Vegas Navada, a desert ruled by people with the most guns...

That's about it. I've got no real plans so I want some feedback, systemic free-form, this, that, and the other thing.

Well I kind of want it like a movie so I need people who can stand a little showboating but know when to back down. Sort of like a modern-day western. Gun-slinging.

I'm also giving a lot of liberty with NPC creation. If you wanted to play the leader of an all-female gang or whatever, you can have five or so NPC lackeys. Stuff like that.

I'm wondering how far the future tech should go seeing as it's a good bit in the future when the war breaks out. Not as far as Fallout per se but maybe primitive cold fusion tech?

Actually though Las Vegas is ruled by a Ganster/Pimp/Slaver/Drugie Named Virgil sort of the revolving antagonist for the game.

Hmm, so like, we utilize the use of caseless ammunition, maybe alot of computers and stuff.

I'm thinking of having some kind of scavenger/mercenary girl with a companion as a dog. Not...that kind of dog, just a regular dog. :P

Also, Virgil...protagonist or antagonist?

Oops fixed

Well you would still have a lot of case and cartridge ammo but things like railguns or what not can be taken down to rifle size. Maybe even a laser encased bullet. Some computers you're not going to find them everywhere but I could see most people having scavenged PDAs or something.

So will Virgil's regime be like organized anarchy? I'm still trying to decide what sort of character I want. I was thinking about some sort of modern day Jack the Ripper.

Hmm. He's the self-Proclaimed ruler of the only city till Phoenix or Chicago, California is gone.

He has guns, women, drugs, but that doesn't stop someone from muscling in on his territory. I actually had an idea about a slave trader who runs his outfit out of a Greyhound Bus. Stuff like that. I don' know how a serial killer would work out.

If you're familiar with Dead Rising then you know what I'm looking for. That seriousness of the situation with just enough camp to keep it entertaining.

It's been a while since I've played Dead Rising. The most un-serious zombie game ever :P

I'm reconsidering my character, because murder is fun and all, but would probably work better in a different scenario. I wouldn't mind being a slaver running his ops out of a bus, however.

You haven't got to be, and he might make a better NPC, your call. I'm still drumming up more interest before I hand out any kind of profile.

This is all so very very exciting. Am I way crazy that I keep seeing Vegas as it was in The Stand?

I already have the picture for my first character! Dont know anything about her of course but I saw this and she spoke to me!

Not so much The Stand. More world destroy-ish. I want it to be sort of serious but with "LOL WHUT?" moments like Dead Rising.

Are there still vaccant positions? I'm open to play almost anything as long as it's half sentient (No,  actually it doesn't even have to be sentient but at least a basic intellect would be nice).

I'd like to play some pre-war technician who treats the knowledge of pre-war technology like a sacred good. Doing weird rituals when repairing pre-war stuff. While he seems to be just insane sometimes there are happening things that could make people actually believe in his madness (Strength: 5, Agility: 6: Charisma: 3, Intellect: 6, Luck: 10! ;D)

The Stand ♥

But I'm thinking it would be more like Terry Brook's Armageddon's Children, if you've read that Ink.

I thought it did. Usually you were causing most of them yourself but still.
