whoof. Having fun, though it's pretty damn cold here...especially when playing rugby at 8 against those french dogs... <_< :D
I've just about designed a game system while away, though! Damn straight. You want to be able to run an Arena of death and attach bionic limbs to your combatants? Your gonna have to wait about a week till I come back, but I've got the bulk of a sci-fi AoD rules written up. Feel free to post blind advice, ie. I want flame throwers! and acid clouds! and whiskers! All in there...admittably without exact rules yet...but I have ideas...
Unfortunately(well, I say unfortunately, but it depends on your viezpoint) this has given me the courage to even contemplate two more game systems, when I should be working on the massive pile of work packages I was given to complete...I've only just started and I'm three quarters of the way through the exchange...tut tut...
Yeah, it's alright here. Back on the fifth.

Officially back right now. Yee gods, got home at eight yesterday, and straight into school today...
On those game systems I have one definately, two likely, three if you're lucky, gamesystems/rule based RPGs ready to play...

This week was far more...hectic than I thought, and were did today go?
I'll need playtesters, probably during the christmas holiday...

Welcome back! The Blood Brothers RPG seems to be moving along so thats good but without you nothing has really happened... cant wait to test out those RPGs though. And yes I am a playtester. Oh, you dont want me to be one? Tough pickles I am one. Yes, I did say "tough pickles." :ph43r:
gladius2 - December 27, 2007 09:57 PM (GMT)
Good. That's good. gods, I have about five games germinating in my notebook. Just let me type them up ;)
Ok, for you, Snotty. You say you've done games before. Now, this is probably the simplest game idea I have, but the most complicated to execute, for me, anyway. However, if done, it means it won't need moderation, or effort from me! wow. All the other games, I have pistures them being conducted on MSN, etc, by me with dice. time consuming. But, I want to do a game similar to this
. The rules would be slightly different, but like that.
Could you have a look, and we could talk on MSN, depending on our time difference.
you might need to sign in. I created an acount:

The idea sounds great in essensce! We will need a team of developers and what better place to look than OWC? My brother and I could do the programming but we will still need concept artists, writers (which any one of us could do), and brainstormers. Perfect timing Gladius as I was just in the brainstorming department for a game to begin working on as most of my other projects have been canceled for various reasons not far along. I guess I just need people to spur me on.

I could help! I'm Dutch and I smoke weed! My head is full of crazy ideas!
gladius2 - March 1, 2008 08:03 PM (GMT)
Yeah! I'm half dutch and would love to speak the language but can't. Yet. :(
I can write up some of my old ideas, if you like.

Anyone else want to contribute? I've got the stage where I can send out near finalised versions of the rules with just a few holes that need filling...
And please advertise a sci-fi AoD around...
Wizwum - March 3, 2008 04:00 PM (GMT)
Wow, I'd sur be interested. Are there rules for just humans + upgrades, or do you have different species capable of fighting? And different upgrades for different species. Eg. high-tech elves, ogres, dwarves etc? Or are you trying to limit the fantasy idea behind it?
gladius2 - March 3, 2008 04:39 PM (GMT)
Well, so far, it's only got humans, because I wanted to get the game mechanics fair at first. So I don't have flame throwers and too many other special ryule weaponry yet, but for 2nd ed...I'd love to include them.
HLY - March 3, 2008 06:33 PM (GMT)
Right does it have lightsabers, or do i need to wait till version two for this?
also, will the ganme be an actualy programed one of a writing one?
gladius2 - March 3, 2008 07:24 PM (GMT)
No lightsabers, but I migth want energy weapons in V.2...
It will be an AoD, a forum based game, were you run a gladiator company, basically. You have fighters, can equip them with weapons and stuff. You then enter them in tournaments, which is basically point and shoot. You arm and enter your fighters, the mods resolve combat, which has no choices to be mae in it, just simple rolling, so it's all fair, and down to luck and the way you've armed your fighter. Then, a winner is determined, and the winnings get paid out...
I'm at the stage where I Can write up V.1, I think.

gladius2 - March 4, 2008 01:22 AM (GMT)
Damn. Just finished the excel program I'll be using to work out the results :D
That was hard work. Maybe I'll be able to hand it in as ICT coursework?
But yeah! In ring mechanics now sorted. I don't even need dice...
Right now, it's a matter of writing up the rules nicely for everyone.
I imagine this starting in one or two weeks, so feel free to advertise. Please :ph43r: lol.
HLY - March 4, 2008 07:23 AM (GMT)
CHEAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you can't do that, it's not at all fair
OK, I'll do a bit of advertising then
gladius2 - March 4, 2008 04:32 PM (GMT)
Darn sight fairer than me trying to roll the die on my crowded desk, rmember everything and calculate it in my head.
Oh, and I think I just made up some rules for lightsaber typeish plasma weapon thingies...
