    Default New Wuxia RGP game (Discusion only)

    From the previous game, there were a few problems with it. Namely, the confusion between discussions made by players and the actual storyline. However, the game proved to be quite successful as there were more than 6 main characters who's creaters made regular contributions to the story. Tempted by its success, I would like to start a similar game with new rules and regulations.

    1) Should this game actually take off, this thread will only contain discussion on the storyline and character information. The actual storyline will take place in another thread.

    2) Regarding the "No God" rule, which frustrated many players because of the ever changing plot, I feel that it is necessary drop the character's creater a short note or seek permission first before you go ahead before embarking to "control" the particular character.

    3) Before entering the game, please list the your character's profile here first. It would help greatly help other players in the storyline and also for easy reference. Not a must, but it will be greatly recommended.

    These are just some of my suggestions... feel free to bring up any other ideas or issues.

    This is the biggest problem in the game. The players will not be present 24 hours of the time. Asking and waiting for permission from player will stall the progress of the RPG a lot.

    But I can't think of any better rule.

    The game should be gamemastered (wuxiamastered?).

    Each player sends in his moves by post to the GM and only the gamemaster updates the storyline once every period (24hr?).

    If player absent, then GM decides for him.

    Makes for better consistency. If there is a strong GM, makes for a good game.

    I need some advice. What level of internal energy one need to have to learn 6 Mai Shen Jian (at least 1 finger)?

    But players also decide his character's action based on what the other characters do and also based on the progression of the storyline. If all the stories is kept by the GM and only updated once a day, how is the interaction between characters going to be written? If each player just send in his own story, it will just like several seperate fanfics instead of 1 story. Clash of storyline might also occur.

    Thats what the GM is for. He describes the scene and depending on how much the response of the players clash with consistency, decides on how much to move the story forward.

    e.g.

    If 3 players all respond with run or fight the baddie. GM can proceed with fight or flight.

    If A player runs, B player fights, C player tries to negotiate. GM can only move story forward 2 seconds. Describes scene as such and see if A/B/C wants to change their actions after seeing their buddy fight/run/try to talk.

    i don't really like the GM idea. I like how everyone was able to contribute. it makes it more lively. we just need to be mindful of other players and ask their permission to use their character. it seems that with the GM, the game will move slow.

    I think each entry a player adds to the story should be based on other entrys and the characters' profile.

    I was really eager to start the story. No matter...it's just my part...you don't have to start where I start. I think it'll be a good idea to have a Hero's Conference going on...

    Out of 10?

    If 8-9 is greats level. Then I say 6-7. Ben monks were more than capable to one mai, and they are only one level below XF (albeit XF can take on 3 of them).

    Actually I have an idea, why don't each choose a JY or GL character and just play them. Then we have two teams. Team JY and Team GL. It would a massive rpg game consisting of JY and GL characters, played by us, and we decide their fate. I would leave it to GMs Tommy and Druid to decide.
