New Direction For the Gathering

Post by Darkwing on Mon Feb 01, 2010 12:07 pm

Quantum and I have been working on methods to improve activity here and to get new members, and the new direction that we are going to try is turn the gathering into a full scale RP, something along similar lines to the Star Wars Destiny of the Force RP. One of the main differences however will be that this forum will continue to have a general chat aspect to it, though more condensed then it is now. Quantum will for obvious reasons be leading the RP and I will focus my efforts on the set-up and maintenance of the RP due to my experience with SW:DOF. Now the details about the RP aren't fully crafted yet, but this is our loose idea. The RP is a gathering of different science-fiction creations, plus sci-fi creations of users. Players wil be able to play as any character, utilize technology from any universe etc. The Rp will start with two main factions, a dark side and a light side. From there the RP will launch, offering players to create their own factions, ships, characters, technologies etc. The story itself hasn't been worked out yet, but that's where you come in. Please post any suggestions you have regarding the two main factions and what the story and time is. Make it something creative fun and original if possible. The final story will be worked out by Quantum and myself and more details will follow. A re-structuring of this forum will begin, and all old topics will still be preserved and all members able to view them.

I'll also be ensuring ease of access when you finish the structure, DW. I can't have the chat frenzy board crowded with sub-boards...

so, what should the two factions be and what should they want, meaning what is the source of conflict for the story?

Well, let's see.

One faction battles another.
One seeks unity and peace.
The other seeks domination and destruction.

I can come up with something...

Well I think we should go with a completely two new factions.

I did think up names at least, for the darker side: Atrum Imperium.

Still thinking for the lighter side, what do you guys think?

I don't think this thread is applicable anymore and should probably be removed as a sticky
