3rd-Tier: Short Swordsman, Broad Swordsman, etc.
4th-Tier: Long Swordsman, Camel Rider, etc.
5th-Tier: Unique Units, such as Immortals and Heitatroi.

Background: As a Persian colony on the shores of the Mediterranean, our job is to defend shipping from Greek, Turkish, and Israelite forces.

You Scouts Report:
The Israelites' closest town, Jerusalem, is a 2-week camel ride from our village. A force was last seen leaving 2 weeks ago... ****! THEY'RE COMING! Yeah, we sorta killed a bunch of them, and they're mad now.

The Greeks' closest town, Athens, almost dominates shipping around here. We need to fight off those Triemes if we're to trade with Carthage. We gotta blast past them with Triemes of our own... and Fire Galleys.

The Turks are just moving around, ready to attack at any moment. They hate us for reasons we may never know, and will attack on sight. DO NOT, your scouts repeat, DO NOT let them get anywhere near our docks. THEY HAVE CATAPULTS!!!

The Carthinagians and Phoenicians have scattered trade routes, and they always convoy their Merchant Vessels. Perhaps we can get them to help us...

Back on planet Kuuruk, the armies of Nirbalu assualt the grand city of Nirulimuka. A few dozen brave soldiers and two starships of the Galdeen Coalition and several thousand soldiers loyal to Kabalu's ruler; King Irbilika Falthus IV are all that stands between Kabalu's journey into the stars, and complete destruction.

Reinforcements from the Galdeen are still days away, and the Quroche say they will only fight if attacked by Nirbalu, can these brave men and women from two different worlds hold out in time? We will find out, here, in the Club-Tail Saga.

So, I started an RP on Kosmosis, which died, so I decided to bring it here.

I'll make the thread soon. I am also reusing the original first post.

Spore: Creation Corner / The Pentekonterus: Kosmosis-Only?
« on: May 31, 2010, 09:30:37 am »
Considering the thread over there is in much better shape than the thread here, I think it's safe to say I can put this up for a vote. So, here we go:

Keep Them On Steve:
-Gec
-Lush City

Go To Kosmo:
-
Other:
-Yuu
-Clarke

Names of voters will be added to the list. When school lets out, the votes will be tallied, and we will see what happens.

PC Games / Touhou

So, seeing as this is the PC Games subsection, I decided to make a Touhou thread. Link to the wiki soon.

EDIT: Here's the Wiki.

When Flabe said I could take over Pokemon Opal, I did, but Eagle said it just wouldn't be the same. I happen to have some ideas for a new region in the works, and I figured, why not Metagame them? So, this happened? Anyway, what do we look like? Are we a boy or a girl? You know, all that good stuff!



The figure you see in front of you says,

"Hello! My name is Mayara Spruce, and you could say I'm Binar's Pokemon Professor! Anyway, welcome to Binar, we live alongside Pokemon as friends, etc... anyway, what's your name?"

Forum Games / If You Were A Sailor Senshi... (Borrowed from HaLOLZ)
« on: May 14, 2010, 06:46:25 pm »
...what would you look like? Your powers? Your teammates? Civilian identity?
... yeah, I've been trying to gravitate away from my usual meme-based forum games, so I looked on HaLOLZ, found this, and so I thought...
"I can't wait to see the things people post in this game!"
So Yeah.

« on: April 29, 2010, 04:41:50 pm »
So, here's the link to the site where you can make the cards:
http://www.bighugelabs.com/deck.php

And here's a little rarity system:
Spore Creatures are Common.
Threads are Uncommon.
Pictures are Rare.
Users are Super Rare.
Moderators are Ultra Rare.
Gaming Steve himself is the rarest card of all.

Here's my card:


The plan is, we spread the word about the board with some nifty collectible cards!

Spore: Creation Corner / Before we go...
« on: April 22, 2010, 04:59:21 pm »
I just wanted to say: I feel the new forum gives me a chance to start over, to make the Pentekonterus a functional and integral part of the galactic community. I did it all wrong last time: I had Point A and Point B, but I was attempting to wing it from one to the other. Now I see that that just doesn't work. So I ask all of you: will you let me?

Long ago, in the capital of a great empire, a king spoke to his vast armies.
“Greetings, soldiers of the Valimus Empire! I have an important announcement for you! Word has spread. The mighty empire of Rome… has fallen. Our neighbors are up in arms, and we, having taken Roman lands, have the last soldiers in all of Europe trained in the Roman way! Let us rain a hail of death upon our enemies, and may our friends stand beside us… as we CONQUER! THE WORLD! FOR VALIMUS!!!
Cheers rose from soldier and civilian alike, but few of the former would ever see home again.
Three years later, a beleaguered group of soldiers stood ready at their camp. The report showed that the enemy, this time a division of Byzantine cavalry, was headed towards the nearby village. A small band of Celtic refugees was on the move, and the infamous Huns were sweeping down from the north. It would take every ounce of cunning and strength these soldiers had to escape from the enemy and rescue the Celts.

Here’s the character sheet, guys:
Name:
Unit type:
Civilization:
Back-story (optional):
Other:

Now, you can only be a unit from AoE 1 or 2 (I may make a sequel in AoE 3’s time when this is done), you must be a mass-producible (i.e. spammable) unit, and you must please keep it PG-13 or below. That means no Frothy Mugs of Water, if you know what I mean.

The epic RTS series by Ensemble Studios finally gets its own thread! Thanks, Krakow Sam, for giving me the idea. This is also for Age of Mythology-related stuff. Post scenarios, movies, campaigns, cheats, tips, tricks, mods, anything related to the series here!

Storytelling and Roleplaying / [i]Olicocenus: A Tumultuous Time[/i]
« on: April 08, 2010, 05:57:17 pm »

This is the basic map on which you will be playing this game. Starting in small groups on the island marked in green, you will, alone or as a group, expand, explore, and embattle from a Stone Age to the future. Here's the system for advancement:
Rank 1- Hunter-Gatherer
Rank 2- Farming Village (River Valleys only)
Rank 3- City-State
Rank 4- Nation
Rank 5- Empire
Rank 6- Superpower

Nations may change in rank depending on events. Ranks 1 and 2 are only allowed stone tools, but once Rank 3 is reached even once, you can develop metals starting at copper. Now, what happens in the nations depends both on you and the world around you. Keep in mind that you are playing over years and you might encounter an event such as a meteor strike or a volcanic eruption.
Rules:
1. Hunter-Gatherers move around until they are allowed to develop agriculture. How quickly this happens depends on your descisions.
2. When 2 groups meet, they may Trade, Fight, Ally, or simply Ignore each other.
3. When Trading, you must trade for resources abundant in your area.

Areas:
Niriff- The western continent. It is home to a large lake, a river, a mountain range, forests, and plains. An ideal spot for agriculture. Wildlife here is a mix of ungulate and primate, as well as insects, fish, and snakes. There are also birds of prey.
Ariff- The eastern continent. It is mostly featureless plateau with sparse prairies scattered about the river. Many climbing animals live here, as well as insectivores and monotremes.
Logrufths- The southern continent. It is covered mostly in ice. Some tubelidonts live here, as well as pinnipeds, fishing birds, and cetaceans in the waters.
Kelriff- The middle island. Home to a variety of birds, arthropods, amphibians, reptiles, primates, and most importantly, humans. Humans compete with their primate bretheren for food sources here, but may one day overtake them.
Doriff- The northern continent. It is home to arthropods, mostly, as well as segmented worms.
Balriff- The eastern island. It is home to primates and marsupials.
Other areas will be explained as the story goes along.


Hoping this is good enough to start the game.

This is the thread where I will post anything I have to say about my experiences in RuneScape. Any comments, tips, or tricks are welcome. I might even start a journal about it!

Spore: Roleplaying and Story Games / The Future Again: OOC
« on: March 22, 2010, 10:10:56 am »
I wanted to create another RP about the Pentekonterus, this time after they discover FTL. I wanted to see how each different race would react to them as they went on a galactic road trip.

Everything Else / How should I go about this?
« on: February 21, 2010, 11:27:35 am »
I recently heard that this year's Otacon will be very close to me (meaning in maryland). I decided I wanted to go as Missingno for... no real reason. Now, I've got the plan: build it out of cardboard. But does anyone here have a better idea?
