    Default Wuxia RPG #3 Ideas Thread

    From the recent discussions of the Wuxia RPG #2 discussion thread it sounds like RPG #2 is going to end pretty soon. As the original creator of this game I'd like to ask you all for your opinions on what should be done to the 3rd RPG. Feel free to post ideas, opinions on the game, and rules that should be added.

    Share your ideas on which era of China you want the RPG to take place in. Or do you want the 3rd RPG to take place in a new world (MysteriouX's idea). Modern world? Like I said before, feel free to post your ideas.

    Ok this is only ideas, sugestions that we can toy around with.

    1> Sequel or something set several years later to game 2
    2> go back (not as prequel) and start a different story set in something like warring states period
    3> set in the modern day, (sorta like Underworld, Highlande, Blade) where the general public is unaware of secret societies or worlds
    4> as i suggested once in the discussion thread, keep all the ideas and stuff about wuxia, but move to a new world so that we will not be limited by history and other factors.


    Please consider that there are both pros and cons to each idea.

    refer to: (as i already stated its just some ideas to toy around with)

    I was also wondering, if it would be nicer to have some Gu Long style battles also, for JY his battles all seem to be full of action and fantistical powers but with Gu Long, they seem more to be battles of wits/personalities/psychology.

    a sequel to game 2 would be hard for anyone who has not read the story as there will be many allusions made in the new rpg to rpg#2....so i encourage you guys to think carefully about that.

    We need to consider a lot of things for the next game. Especially for people who want to newly join in, we should give first consideration to them so they can imediately participate without having to catch up.

    Its also why I suggest that one of the first posts in the game thread be a constantly updated summary of what is happening in the game. Someone should take the time to handle this. Lets say like we updated this every saturday of the week.

    no one has time for that responsibility nor want that responsibility...and even then, very few players actually care to read the ENTIRE rpg 2 game. and if the players did, even fewer remember what happened to other players' characters. anyhow, i'm not planning to be a part of the new rpg but i was only pointing out how difficult it would be to do a sequel to rpg 2. i will not stop it or encourage it, but i do wish for the new players to have fun in rpg 3...like i did in rpg 2.

    and doing a sequel to rpg2 is very possible...but it'll be messy especially if most of the new players have no clue what happened in rpg2.

    LOL actually I was thinking of taking that responsibility. With some help of course from you all. Like PMing me with some short summary of your latest posts. (Uhhh only for the next game, I am not going to do it for Game #2)

    I also hope some players who left in the first and second games will return to play.

    An economy that is countable? IE 1 gold ingot = 10 silver ingot = 100 shilings
    5 shilings = 1 sword?

    Though I may not participate in RPG #3, I'd just like to suggest that RPG #3 should have the same set of rules as RPG #2.

    I sorta have this idea. What about redoing a novel? Like one of Jin Yong's works only we add our characters into it. Maybe help out any of the main characters, or change a few things in the novel? I don't know... I think it seems a bit complicated, but it's an idea.

    GURPS!!!

    External Strength
    Internal Strength
    Endurance (Stamina, poison and physical)
    Looks
    Intelligence
    Agility/Qing Gong

    A cap of 10 for each stat. And 35-40 points to spend on the stats.

    E.g.

    Guo Jing

    External Strength 8
    Internal Strength 10
    Endurance (Stamina, poison and physical) 9
    Looks 2
    Intelligence 2
    Agility/Qing Gong 9

    Default Storyline

    Hi all,

    I guess the most important thing for RPG 3 is to have a cut off time for submission of new characters, a grouping of good and bad guys, love triangles relationship and storyline. A balance needs to be achieved. To be decided by the originator.

    The storyline can be simple as there will be various authors submitting the posts. But the originator must clearly define the plot so that the rest of us will not sidetracked.

    The fighting sequences and judgement of power or comparison of martial arts can leave it up to the participants to write out. But same rule, try not to kill off the one's character before seeking permission. Can PM the other party.

    Of cos, everything must have last episope. Stick that to 40 or 50 episope. After that have a climax battle then the originator will decide the ending...

    I think we should stick to most of what's in Wuxia RPG #2 but this time I would like to add some rules.

    1) No bringing people from another era into the time period of which the RPG is taking place.
    for example: don't bring lhc 300 years back into the past

    2) Please don't make your character Great-level! I realized that in the previous RPG 90% of the characters were either close-to-great level or great level. And most of these characters were in their twenties. C'mon...make it more realistic...be more creative. Please don't reply to me by saying 'but DY this...but XZ that...'

    more rules will be added if needed.

    Here's what I've decided on...

    Setting: Sung dynasty - five years after DGSD
    Important Figures in wulin:

    Duan Yu - king of Dali (completely mastered 6MSJ) [note that we are going by the 2nd edition of the novel so WYY is in love with Duan]
    Xu Zhu - husband of princess of Xi Xia
    Duan YanQing - one and only remaining evil
    Ding ChunQiu - leader of SingChuk Pai (still controlled by Xu Zhu because of the Life/Death talisman poison)

    Plot:

    as usual...someone evil and powerful pops up and characters must work together to destroy him

    What do you guys think?

    PS: Who would like the idea of XF still being alive? Like: XF fell on a tree which broke his fall.

    and also...if your character plays an important part, don't just drop off the face of the earth and leave us all hanging.

    The term for this, is officially known among the RPG players as "pulling a Szema Fei."

    But then the term can also refer to subsequent reactions by the other players of killing that particular character in the harshest way possible.
