so what you thinking to do now?

Still not sure. Just got back home from a 7 day run out of town for work. Hence also being a bit absent from the forums. But, I'm...thinking

Okay. New RP idea. Let's see what the people think:
All the players are part of a psuedo government agency called the Bureau of Planewalkers. I'll let your supervisor, General Francis "Frank" Benjamin



You have all been discovered and chosen to join our elite band at the Bureau of Planewalkers for a single purpose, to find those lost in the planes. First, let me tell you something highly important - apart from our own, no other plane is real. That's right, what you see in these planes, what you experience, is merely an illusion. Generally speaking, one or two people are trapped within these illusionary dimensions which will cease to exist once the real people are removed and returned back to our true dimension, Prime. You are some of the few people on Earth with the capacity to enter and exit these dimensions. You have the power to enter, exit, and pull people out. You also can do whatever you want in these dimensions. Because they are not real, because these pseudo-realities are not based in reality, you can transform at will, stretch, grow, do whatever you want to help save these people. But, remember, the longer you are in a false dimension - the more drawn you are to it, the more you begin to believe the lie and believe the dimension is real. Are you up to the challenge? Are you ready to planewalk and save the people who are trapped in these false realities? Are you ready to join the Bureau of Planewalkers?

The idea is the players would be a band of people in the BoC who would travel to different planes and try to save people. They each have a 20% chance of believing the dimension they enter is real, but otherwise - they RP and do whatever they want to try to save the person. What do I mean by whatever I want? Let's say for example that there is a dimension based on the anime Attack on Titan and we are trying to save Armin from this dimension as he's the only real person there. When we enter, a player can turn themselves into a Titan, take down Titans with that power, and then go back to normal to grab Armin and get him out of there. Because these "realities" aren't real, you can treat them like lucid dreams and do whatever you can imagine.

Thoughts? Would people be interested? I'd include some kind of mechanic whereby the players can start to fall victim to the lie and believe the dimension is real if they're there for too long. I'll probably use a d100 (100/percentile sided die) to check for chance of believing the false reality. I'd imagine this would only work with a small group of people, but if more people are interested - it could be divided into a few different mission groups...

Sorry, it's a new idea and I kind of like it...even more than my music idea

I am still quite confused with the ideal but with the Attack on Titan example, kinda make it seems easier to digest. So I want to ask, will all your dimensions based off some anime/well-known shows? I do agree this would be much better than the music one since....honestly speaking.... I don't listen to english songs (SORRY!). I am more to Japanese songs so to speak, so the previous idea would really land me in big time trouble XD

As far as to my (best) understanding from what you explained above, I feel this is a great rp story.

But still the same, I alone can not make the decision. Let's see what others and Tokyo think about this ( >.O)v

That's fine. I wouldn't limit it to anime shows. There can be any fictional universe we feel like throwing the cast of characters at. The idea is - the RP team goes in, finds the person they're trying to save, and brings them home. How they do so is open ended and, as mentioned above, as these realities are fake the characters have the capacity to do whatever it takes to get the job done. That said, I wanted to add in a challenge - which is the whole idea that characters can lose a grip on reality and get dragged into believing the false world they're in is real. Just an idea. I think it adds to some suspense. The mechanic would most likely work via an online dice simulator like this: http://www.roll-dice-online.com/ Where a 20 or lower on a 100 sided dice would mean the individual players are starting to believe the universe they are in is real.

Thanks! Let's see what everyone else thinks. I think there's a lot of opportunity to explore and create some interesting worlds to visit. Plus, they're all fake so that shouldn't have an effect on you

We can always start brand new, like a group finds an old circus tent and run down train cars and makeshift lodges. Try something different than the past deal, like its the decendants of the old circus, the kids who were told stories and wish to start it back up.......Something like that.

So I hear we are trying to do a reboot? And I see that the only RP currently up is Crossing Paths? I was not part of the prequel so is this where we are discussing starting up new RPs? What's in the running so far? lol
