Breaking the Ice
« on: December 12, 2006, 08:59:33 AM »
Hello Elliquians...

I have a few ideas to toss out there, hopefully to spark something up; I hope I'm not the only one who finds the prospect of 'breaking the ice' on one of these threads a little difficult. 

For one thing, there's a lot of games going on that look interesting, but primarily they're stalling, or so random and have been running so long that there's hundreds of posts to catch up on.

So, I'm taking the risk of being rejected-- which is ok, I won't tear up.   ::)

Are there any players out there who are looking for a partner, or small group?  Particularly, I'm looking for a fantasy-setting or gothic-punk game, one-on-one or small group, to join in with.  I'm lookinf for story-- improvised freeform, or light-system-- with adventure, mystery, horror, or sexuality as themes. 

Maybe you've got a one-on-one that's idling, and bringing in a fresh perspective could revitalize the scenario, or maybe you're like me and looking for a partner.  Let me know, and maybe we can find some common ground :)

Some ideas, if you'd like to bat them around:

HEIST: The possibilities are pretty open.
SETTING: Ultra-modern US/Europe OR late 19th century US (Post Civil War)
IDEA: A crime-story. Characters would be thieves plotting, executing, and trying to get away with a major heist.  For inspiration, see Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (Newman and Redford) or Heat (DeNiro and Pacino).  Characters could include gunmen, driver, hostages, faces, etc.  Think it over.
HITCH: To set this one apart, it involves some real advsersity between, and within, characters.  Otherwise, it'd just be an exercise in action-description.

DEMONBREAK:  More of a freeform, high-fantasy adventure.
SETTING: Medieval-fantasy world, rural to urban, but with Planar travel. 
IDEA: Mortals are at war with inter-planar beings, and their world has been marked for conquest.  Since humans cannot wield magic, or travel the planes, without assistance, a select few are chosen as vessels for possession... imbued with abilities that make them far more than human... by the only source available: demons. 
The characters are chosen for their inner strength, in the hopes that they can bargain with and cajole the demons within them in order to breach the outer realms, where they can hunt down the relics lost even to the plane-travelers and save their world.
The question is... will they want to?
HITCH: Each player would be responsible for 2 sides to his/her character: 1, the human, and 2, the beast within, with its own goals, personality, and desires.

Thank you three for your interest... and I'd love to start a game or two with you guys.  I've noticed a lot of one-on-ones in the different
"freeform" categories, but anything with more than a couple usually gets its own listing. 

I'm all for playing with you all who have posted already, in either game.  But, I guess if anybody else wants to join up, we can do a quick vote as to "yea" "nay" before responding to them.

So let's give it a shot... Demonbreak will, of course, be more twisted and freaky, so will probably end up in NCEF.  Heist, however, might contain some incidental sex, so I'm thinking Light Sexual for that, unless there's a hostage situation... could be moved to Bondage Etc. after that, right?  *grins*

So, I'll start a thread, and if the games gain momentum we can bump it up a notch.  Cool?

For me, Demonbreak is a yea!
Heist is also a yea... it is just not as strong as Demonbreak ;)

So we should run this as a one-on-one game then?

Caustic, it might be worth while reading this before starting the game.

As there are four of us wanting to play, it may be best if we have our own 'board' where we have an OOC thread to discuss the game and a place to put our character details, as well as the game itself.

We would also need a little more background, like setting and where to start etc....

Riiight.  Thanks for the help :)
I'm trying to put together a step 1 here for "The Heist".  Have a look... it can still be changed.

I must be off for a while, but I will try to sort out more when I get back this evening.
Looking forward to it!

The thread is up and running, ladies and gentlemen, for Demonbreak OOC discussion.  Have a looksie, see if you can inject some life into it ;)

I'll toss out a few ideas, and I hope you all will too.

Thanks for your interest!  -Caustic

You've put it in the wrong place old bean.....*smiles*

You need to ask a Siren to set a board up for you.
There we can have a discussion thread, character thread and the game itself.

It will be an easy job for a Siren to transfer the thread that you have already started into the board that she sets up.

Elvi that is the board!

And if anything I would have dropped it in the wrong place.. which I don't reckon he wanted it there,.. thus there it is.

Oh please...my head hurts I have a stinking sinus headache......I'm sorry, have I got me all confused?

Hasn't caustic put an OOC game discussion thread in the One on One games board?

Uhm.. nope there isn't an OOC game dicussion in NCEF, think you got your signals crossed. He made an OOC in the board for Demonbreak. And if you have a sinus go to freaking bed!

*grin*  No problem.  Thanks for replying.

So far, there's been very, very little interest in Heist, but it's still open for discussion.

Demonbreak, however, generated a little more interest, and there've been a couple character ideas tossed around.  So, what I was shamelessly self-promoting is that Demonbreak is still in the planning stages, but could get rolling any time, if we get enough players :)
