Can you just tell me what it is? I'm not going to read an entire web comic in place of a two sentence explanation.

The internet is a magical place, where linguistic and dialectic possibilities are endless. Why not embrace those variations and see where they lead you.

Look, this is a game that you guys are planning. We need details on what things are, otherwise the game is going to fall apart. Just explain it.

Lets see....

Basically it is a video game that occurs in reality. There is the server software and the player software. The server allows you to manipulate the real world in limited ways. The player software has an obvious function.

Okay. That's an interesting concept.

How will that work in the form of an RP? We assume our characters are in the real world playing a game? And then the real world changes as does what's happening in the game?

I think, due to the incredible complexity of the comic and sburb, having read the comic is almost a necessity.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Tesla is very right.  This would be increadibly confusing if you havn't read the comic.  But really, you should read it anyway, because it is amazing.  Also, here's a better description of Sburb.

There are certain aspects of the game that may have to be done in a way that doesn't make perfect sense in the real world however now that I think about it, such as the syladex.

Normally I'd recommend against making a game with such steep entry requirements, but most of the RP people have forgotten how to talk about anything else so you'll probably be good.

* Badger fires a probe into the thread

Who would be interested in a post-apocalyptic flooded earth type RP?

Anybody for Age of Empires-based stuff?
PLEASE?
Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?

Anything more on that post-apocalypse RP?

Also, if anyone is interested, we've had Wild West and Pirate RPs that we'd like to see done at some point. And if anyone wants to take another crack at the Hybrid System, shoot me a PM.
