Gamingsteveland [Planning]
« on: January 17, 2008, 04:30:36 pm »


"Greetings, ignorant masses!  I am Richard Von Rich, and I am here to tell you that, despite the fact that my wealth is far greater than anything you will achieve in life, I'm getting bored.

I tire of bribing governments so that they can provide me with amusement.  I tire of buying the most expensive things I can think of and crash them into each other.

So, as the massive amount of unethical moolah that I have collected over the years (And through various inheritances) is losing its interest, I will turn to you all, the human capital, for entertainment.

I am currently standing on the future site of Gamingsteveland, where all of you will be soon, attracted by the promise of wealth and being idiots on television.

In this wasteland, you will live, love, fight, and die.  The audience will enjoy your deaths.

To commemorate the fact that I'm better than you, I will now burn this money.  Have a nice day."



((Okay, so this is the planning thread for a meta-game I've been thinking of.  I was thinking, perhaps we could have a village "map", with buildings and areas.  People would sign up, and state any preferences they would have for their character:  i.e. Have them be male or female, have a crush or not on another member (chosen randomly), and a job or family.  If they don't, it will be randomized (fun!)

People will post public actions in the game thread, and private actions (Like having an affair or backstabbing a friend) would be pmed to the GM.  Just to have things interesting some people will be psychos or thieves, and once every game "day" the gm will post one private action (chosen randomly) that everyone can see.

There will be pictures, interesting conflicts, epic battles, and the game will go on until everyone tires of it, or is killed.

There you have it.  A village simulator with no win conditions, but interesting enough social dynamics and some mafia-esque ness thrown into the mess to make it fun.))

Do you have any special requirements?  A job?  Or do you wish to be randomized?

He's holding something MAKING the fire to burn the money.

You guys know I have to do this with legos, right?  :D


Ah well, the results will certainly be interesting.


Remember, don't choose a role like "Psychopathic murderous kitten eater", because then the others would know who you are.


I will choose the secret roles based on randomness and occasionally, irony.


Some of the normal roles you can choose from (Besides those already taken):

cowboy
gaming nerd
baker
candy store owner
crazy cat lady
teacher
librarian
etc.


If you wish to be something interesting of your choice, pm your secret role.


(Also, I won't be making a Darth Vader policeman, sorry.  That just wouldn't fit the character.  How about a fat donut eating one?

HOLD IT RIGHT THERE!

The plural of Lego (or if you want to be really correct, LEGO), is Lego.
See? No 'S'. I'll let this one slide since you've probably never been shown the error in your ways before, but if you defile the greatest toy ever made again, I will be forced to kill you.

This concludes the public service announcment.
