I am designing a game that is meant to be played on forums and I would like to see if anyone is interested in playing it.

Thread (http://www.mangatutorials.com/forum/showthread.php?2412-Forum-Wars-PBP-Brainstorming-Design-Thread)

Don't be intimated if it seems like a lot of rules its actually painfully simple so simple I should be arrested and beaten down in the showers with socks full of soap.

The game requires very little commitment. You will never be asked to take your turn.

Just to be clear this will be a test run so the game will most likely run very slowly as I figure out the bugs and kinks but it will probably still be fun.

If you are interested or have questions just post here.

Totally stoked for this. It actually sounds like it could be some fun.

jubeh
07-16-2012, 01:14 AM
Cool everyone interested please post because I need to base the size of the map based on the number of playas

Sure, I have time to spare for 2 rp's.

Ima play a knight.

jubeh

cool if you guys have any questions just let me know I know my wording is kind of bad because I tend to just shotgun blast my ideas onto notepad.

Um idk how we're going to decide the leaders of kingdoms do you guys want to use democracy or

Hayashida
07-16-2012, 01:52 AM
maybe people can choose to either make their own or join another and eventually the most powerful ones will prevail

ClockHand
07-16-2012, 01:53 AM
Mine work like mongoles. I'm the Khan.

jubeh
07-16-2012, 01:53 AM
Im just worried about like having 10 players each with a kingdom and its like whats the point

Hayashida
07-16-2012, 01:56 AM
Well as long as everyone doesn't make their own people will be forced to join up with other kingdoms in order to remain alive

jubeh
07-16-2012, 01:59 AM
Ok it appears clock wants to start some sort of mongolian/german kingdom.

Hayashida
07-16-2012, 02:01 AM
I'm thinking about starting a kingdom

jubeh
07-16-2012, 02:02 AM
If you want to start a kingdom please come up with a name and make a recruitment post in this thread or something.

Mr_Liebe
07-16-2012, 02:06 AM
I won't bother making a kingdom, I'll just follow one of you guys.

jubeh
07-16-2012, 02:08 AM
Choose wisely liebe as both of those guys are assholes in different ways

Mr_Liebe
07-16-2012, 02:09 AM
Man, who isn't an asshole in some particular way, these days?

I'll need to think about it for a while.

Clock is starting a whole teutonic/mongolian like Frederick Barbossa meets Ghengis Kahn type kingdom, ja? Doesn't sound too bad of a set up. However, what Kingdom are you two going to start, Haya, Jubeh?

Hayashida
07-16-2012, 03:30 AM
My kingdom is gonna be called Wulfhelm. Naturally if you join my kingdom you get a cool title. Also we're gonna win, so yeah.
Here is our standard, unless someone comes up with a better one.

We're gonna be more of an Anglo/Saxon kind of kingdom I think.

jubeh
07-16-2012, 03:31 AM
Did u make that banner

Hayashida
07-16-2012, 03:32 AM
ya

Mr_Liebe
07-16-2012, 03:49 AM
I'll go with Haya, I think. The kingdom's name has a nice ring to it, and cool titles are great.

What are the guiding principles of your kingdom?

Hayashida
07-16-2012, 03:59 AM
You must guide yourself with the heat of burning coal and always look forward as if you are on a metal track. In other words, duane, you must be an unstoppable twain

jubeh
07-16-2012, 04:00 AM
what a lame philosophy who would join a kingdom like that

Mr_Liebe
07-16-2012, 04:01 AM
Captain Romulus takes note, and understands. Lol, I only have my characters name, ha ha ha.

jubeh
07-16-2012, 04:02 AM
-_-

Okay I guess anyone interested can start making their characters. Character creation is outlined in the original thread.

Mr_Liebe
07-16-2012, 04:03 AM
I wasn't supposed to? Mybad, bro, I can wait.

jubeh
07-16-2012, 04:05 AM
No its fine let me know if you have questions about making ur dude

Hayashida
07-16-2012, 04:08 AM
I don't remember making you a captain

Mr_Liebe
07-16-2012, 04:11 AM
Well, I'd like to know what a Knight would start with, anything particular to his craft?

Lol, nah, it's just sounded cool, it's up to you how my character starts.

Hayashida
07-16-2012, 04:12 AM
Duane did you even read the thread

Mr_Liebe
07-16-2012, 04:16 AM
Yeah, just said one would start with mundane stuffs.

I'll read it again.

jubeh
07-16-2012, 04:17 AM
Well in the equipment slot of your character sheet dont write anything. That's really meant for items.

You can write in your bio that your dude wears armor or whatever but it will have no impact on gameplay.

Mr_Liebe
07-16-2012, 04:20 AM
Okay, thank you.

jubeh
07-16-2012, 04:31 AM
John and I posted up a mock city battle to use as an example.

Battle of Avocado City (http://www.mangatutorials.com/forum/showthread.php?2412-Forum-Wars-PBP-Brainstorming-Design-Thread&p=106028&viewfull=1#post106028)

Mr_Liebe
07-16-2012, 04:34 AM
I have some experience with this type of thing, but, yes, I read those posts.

jubeh
07-16-2012, 04:36 AM
This got knocked to the bottom of the page so quoting it again for anyone still confused about how city battles work.

Mr_Liebe
07-16-2012, 04:38 AM
This is a bit like Risk, ja?

jubeh
07-16-2012, 04:40 AM
On a bigger scale yeah

Hayashida
07-16-2012, 04:40 AM
whats a risk

edit: oh wait right heheh

Mr_Liebe
07-16-2012, 04:41 AM
Made this post before your edit, calm down, dude.

Hayashida
07-16-2012, 04:42 AM
yeah I GOT IT DUANE

Superdooperphailmachine
07-16-2012, 09:17 AM
I'm interested.

TheMoub
07-16-2012, 11:35 AM
I'll probably make a wanderer, not sure yet.

AlmanacnamedTime
07-16-2012, 01:01 PM
Imma play.

Outcast
07-16-2012, 02:17 PM
Yeah I'm in.

jaidurn
07-16-2012, 03:18 PM
I'm totally gonna make a Kingdom. Well, I'll keep it if people actually join it.

My kingdom's name is gonna be Sen Sakhet. We have good food and horses. Oh, and you get cool hats. That's a huge bonus.

We're totally a democracy because who doesn't like voting on what we do with prisoners? Nah, we're more of a Mumlek/Arab kind of kingdom. It's not set in stone though.

jubeh
07-16-2012, 03:22 PM
So the current list is

John - Wulfhelm
Clock - Unnamed Kingdom
Jaidurn - Sen Sakhet
Toast
Cake
Duane
Phail - Oorlog
TheMoub
AlmanacnamedTime
Outcast

I think this may be enough to start since people can just jump in whenever anyway. Everyone interested should start making their characters.

Hayashida
07-16-2012, 03:24 PM
Where do you want us to post our characters

jubeh
07-16-2012, 03:26 PM

Jubeh, do we start with a kingdomthing?

jubeh
07-16-2012, 03:29 PM
If you want to yeah I need to know all the kingdoms before I set the map up so if you are starting one say so now.

Or just join one.

Superdooperphailmachine
07-16-2012, 03:42 PM
Yeah I'll have a kingdom.
I'll call it Oorlog.

jubeh
07-16-2012, 03:43 PM
Okay I think I will cut off the kingdoms now you have 4 choices.

Wulfhelm
Clock's Kingdom
Sen Sakhet
Oorlog

jubeh
07-16-2012, 04:02 PM
Okay here is the map I know its awful. If anyone has better skillz than me they could make a better one but basically this is how it works. The red lines are passes meaning you can only travel them alone.The blue lines are roads which can be traveled alone or with an army.

John called Red Castle btw

http://i.imgur.com/uuJX7.png

Superdooperphailmachine
07-16-2012, 04:04 PM
I call orange

jaidurn
07-16-2012, 04:05 PM
I call green.

Hayashida
07-16-2012, 04:19 PM
I'll try to make a map tonight but I don't know if it will turn out any better so we'll see

jubeh
07-16-2012, 04:30 PM
Okay city and castle descriptions work like this.

The first player to capture a city writes a description about it.

So the kings will write a description of their castle and kingdom first of all. This way we'll basically build the lore of the world together.

Outcast
07-16-2012, 04:31 PM
What's the hole in the middle?

jubeh
07-16-2012, 04:32 PM
Its a massive crater nobody knows what caused it

jaidurn
07-16-2012, 04:55 PM
So I'm taking a stab at making the map more map like. I'm still working on it, this is just what I've got so far.

http://i494.photobucket.com/albums/rr310/jaidurn_charre/aGoPMap.png

Edit: I just noticed I'm missing a road in the bottom left.

jubeh
07-16-2012, 04:57 PM
Cool but the roads aren't right.

jaidurn
07-16-2012, 04:57 PM
wait so you really just want those ugly diagonal roads that get really confusing?

wait nvm I see what you mean. Editing.

jubeh
07-16-2012, 04:58 PM
Yeah the roads have to connect that way. You can rearrange the cities to make it make more sense but the roads have to lead to the exact same places.

jaidurn
07-16-2012, 04:59 PM
yeah I just noticed places connect where they're not supposed to.

jubeh
07-16-2012, 05:20 PM
Okay we are revising the map disregard that old one.

jaidurn
07-16-2012, 08:00 PM
Okay so James okayed this finally.

IT TOOK FOREVER.

jubeh
07-16-2012, 08:20 PM
Outposts. They are a recent addition.

Outposts are like towns that nobody controls and cost resources to enter.

Evil_Cake
07-16-2012, 08:23 PM
WAT

Hayashida
07-16-2012, 08:35 PM
I didn't realize Jaidurn was making a map but I made one too.

Do you just garrison troops in outposts?

jubeh
07-16-2012, 08:40 PM
Outposts never have troops just a fine.

John: Sorry I made a bunch of changes to the map I didnt think you'd work on one.

Hayashida
07-16-2012, 08:40 PM
WHAT

jubeh
07-16-2012, 08:40 PM

I must warn everyone, John plays like a Canadian; he sucks at trying to win, but he is great for alliances where he is not going to have backup later.

07-18-2012, 07:21 PM

ClockHand
07-18-2012, 07:38 PM
In my Kingdom, everyone can have 50% of anything looted (if there is one item, it belong to me, but you can use it, till you loot something new).

Evil_Cake
07-18-2012, 08:02 PM
is that it? :cat_noways:

ClockHand
07-18-2012, 08:05 PM
Well, we are just a bunch of looters who destroy everything in their path. I guess you can also have fun.

jubeh
07-18-2012, 10:55 PM
Still waiting on you to make your character so we can start clock

jaidurn
07-18-2012, 11:50 PM
You can do whatever you want in my kingdom.

Evil_Cake
07-18-2012, 11:58 PM

jaidurn
07-19-2012, 12:18 AM

Evil_Cake
07-19-2012, 12:24 AM
