Hi all,

We're aware of a peculiar forum glitch that's causing some subforums to be locked.

Due to the lateness at this time, it might be a while before the glitch can be remedied, because despite my best efforts and as far as I can tell, everything seems to be working fine admin-side. It may have …

*wipes sweat from brow* Whew, political correctness is a lot of hard work. But it has to be done.

ANYWAYS, we did it - we (almost) survived 2016 which, I think we can all agree, was pretty damn terrible in many ways.

Regardless, it was a good year on the forums - we've met some new faces, set out …

New RPG Maybe..?

Post by Hawky on Sat Aug 22, 2015 6:05 pm

Hola peoples. Hawky here.

It's not that I don't find any of the current RPs here interesting, I do. I just...always feel awkward trying to jump into something that's been going on for a while. It's just a 'me' thing. I'm a socially awkward person, even online~

So, in coming up with an idea, my brain went immediately to the high-fantasy route. That's where it always goes. It's my thing. It's what I love. But then... This next idea came to me, after watching a play-through of a still-in-development game called "We Happy Few." I wasn't sure about it at first, but it kept pestering me and pestering me, like a toddler who wants something. I started to warm up to it. So, even though the fantasy-dork in me wants to veto it and go in the initial direction I wanted to go in... I'm noticing quite a lot of fantasy already on here. Not a bad thing. After all, what else can I expect from a community pretty much made up of a bunch of people who used to play a game about wizards? And, as pointed out earlier, I'm right there with ya on the fantasy-loving-train.

So... I'm gonna attempt to introduce this new, surprisingly not fantasy idea first. It'll either go over well...or not. No hard feelings over the latter. I just wanna see if this'll garner interest. If so, that's frickin' awesome.

Aaaanyhoo, if you've stuck with me this long, you're amazing and I love you. As your reward, I'll actually describe the idea. Very Happy

Basically, it's a dystopian society. But I don't want it to be another Hunger Games or Divergent (even though I enjoyed both series (except you, Mockingjay.)). I want it a little darker, a little more twisted. I want Bioshock: Infinite meets 1984. I have a really long backstory-thing written out more or less, that I'll gladly share, if you're interested.

Anyway, setting-wise, it takes place in America, in the year 2896. It's your typical 'sci-fi' setting--very futuristic looking, computers in your brain, flying cars, everything sleek and lights and whatnot. The country is run by a religious cult (of the newest religion Abelism), headed by the great-grandson of its creator Philip Henry Richard Abel IV. And the laws of the country are very, *very* strict and relating to that cult. Law-enforcement is absolutely brutal--the police have the right to physically beat and/or take into custody (which...pretty much means being taken to a torture chamber) anyone who they deem a Sinner. Mostly, its the poor people who can't afford the required-by-law drug, I:223, which causes the user to be totally happy--all other emotions subdued. It's an addictive drug, and makes people preeeetty mentally malleable. (That latter sentence is...pretty unknown amongst the general population, and Abelist leaders want to keep it that way)

It's a society where everything is chosen for you, so that you obviously don't need to burden yourself with it: at age 12, you take an aptitude test that determines your career, future spouse, how many kids you should have, etc. It shouldn't matter, society says, who you're paired up to marry. After all, everyone loves everyone.

When this hypothetical RP takes place, a recorded message by Philip Henry Richard Abel I's daughter recently was found. She warns of her father's evil plot to rise to power and to never, EVER take I:223. Leaders attempted to take the recording out of circulation, but it was too late. The right people saw it. An entire movement began, an attempt to stop taking I:223 and return to normal human emotion and thought. Not all, obviously. Many feared what would happen if they did. Others, still under the mind-numbing effects of the drug, believed the now-edited propaganda that denied the truth of the recording. Those strong few who wanted to fight fell even fewer, however, due to the addictive qualities of the drug. But they continue to gather strength for a rebellion, attempting to blend into society until then.

And that's where you lovely people come in~

Again, this is just to see if there's any sort of interest in this kinda thing as an RPG 'round here. If not, thaaaat's totally cool. ^^"

Thanks for looking at what I'm sure is a very very long thing. o-o (and ignore the lack of proper italics and such. This was typed on my phone's notes things and then posted from a phone...)

As cool as this sounds (I really enjoyed the concept of the Bioshock games and I still remember the plot of 1984, having found it to be fascinating as well), now is honestly the worst time for me in particular since my freshman year in college is starting up and I doubt I'll be able to be on CC enough to devote myself to any RPGs and let people down when I can't post. Still, I honestly wish you the best of luck with the RPG, it sounds like a great idea.

I really like this idea Very Happy Like Athena said it reminds me a lot of "The Giver" but I also see some of the "Legend Trilogy" in it.

I'm interested with what else you have for this rpg

It sounds like a really fascinating idea and one that I would love to be a part of. But, similar to Ace, I start back up in college on Monday and I'm going to be working five days a week, so this is a pretty awful time for me to be jumping into new RPGs. I probably won't be around much on CC and don't want to join this if I can't devote myself to it. I wish you the best of luck though because it sounds like it's a great idea. I'll definitely be reading along, when I can, if you make it! Smile

While I'm incredibly busy, I would join this in a heartbeat. I'm a huge fan of both 1984 and the Giver.

It's a nice idea. Like three or four other people have said, it reminds me of "The Giver". WE ALL READ IT, PEOPLE.
All jokes aside, it does sound good.

RT @Ace @boyhoy

I'm a big Bioshock nut and, while I haven't read 1984, I have read The Giver - not to mention this also reminds me of Brave New World (at least, the drug part). I'd be on board, but like Ace and boyhoy, I'm starting college on the 27th, so my activity level will get kinda wonky. I'll certainly try, tho!
