I really feel as if we need a new RP to get off the ground, and I just so happen to have a few ideas for one. That being said, some of these are very early in development (read: I have no idea where they're going) so I'm going to need someone else to collab it up with me.
Let's have ourselves a vote.


1. Re: Data Clash - A Megaman Battle Network RP (Original OoC)
This collab RP with user Seraph is based in an alternate universe, where a rouge gang of net battlers named the Undernet Resistance League (URL for short) seek to rule over the Net. All the while the N1 Grand Prix slowly approaches. If voted on, I would probably ask Seraph if he would like to help out again.

2. Persona! Seek the Truth
An RP based on the Shin Megami Tensei series Persona. If voted on, I would definitely need someone's help because I have only played Persona 4 and wouldn't want to start an RP with my limited knowledge.

3. Re: CLASSIC - The Cliche Fantasy Story (Original OoC)
Based on two rivaling kingdoms troubled with problems you would expect. I like to imagine this as Easy Mode: The Roleplay because of how easy it would be for anyone to join.

4. Some kinda futuristic based RP where a crime lord has taken over the city
You can either fight to take it back, or help keep the crime lord in power.

5. These ideas are terrible, and want you to help me with my RP idea instead
Let me hear it!

If I had realized at the time that people would be conflicted I would have added the option to vote for two RPs instead of one and worked with those two instead of just making one.

Tell me what interests you about your choice, if you can. I know that there's next to no info on the Dark City Crime Lord, but what would you like to see happen in it if that's what gets chosen? What about the Fantasy RP? I want this to go swimmingly, so I'd like to know what everyone wants to see.

Shifting through the spaces like only Mist can.
I liked the Dark City idea because it presents an opportunity to think outside of the norm. I mean, you would have to find a way to bring down the crime lord(or protect him if that's the side that you're on) without the usual face-to-face confrontations. You'd have to use various methods to bring him down. Sure there would be fights in the classic sense, but it's the idea of getting your goal through other methods that most people don't like to rely on because of how complicated they are. A giant game of chess is how I see it.

Various factions within Dark City might specialise in different kinds of technology, or apply it in different ways. I could imagine two groups off the bat: Both of them are information brokers, but one of them goes about gathering their commodity through hacking into various systems at a distance, while the other implements agents, drones, and generally gets up-close in their spying. That they have this hold on covert information means they could manipulate others with lies, since many would trust the truth of their claims.

I could see land-grabs, one group gaining more territory from the other/defending the territory from the other group. And depending on who controls the territory will determine which side "npc's" will fight with.

An interesting idea in those land-grabs would be if there are avatars/androids bound to certain locations, and throughout the story the player-characters come across these NPCs whose allegiances vary wildly as their given area is taken over by other forces. If we want to get all philosophical about it, we could even throw in the question of it being justifiable that sentient, thinking beings are so at the whims of others.

Also neutral grounds would be good, like an area where no fights/battles can take place. Basically a peace area.

Obviously, everyone has a lot of interest in the Dark City RP, which I only threw up there at the last minute. For that reason, I'd like to ask you who would like to collab with me to do so in order to make this happen. Of course because there are many people with many ideas, we can have multiple people discussing how and where this RP will go, ranging from the type of combat that will be used to the environment and everything in between.

I'm saying these things because the ideas presented in this topic are the complete opposite of what I expected them to be (I was expecting a "It means more battles between people" instead of a "It allows for a more tactical approach"). Because of this, not only am I asking for a collab, but I would also be willing to hand the idea off to someone else who has bigger and brighter ideas for the Dark City (punnnsss). However, that isn't a requirement and I will be happy to go about spearheading this myself--assuming I had one or two people collaborating with me--because it does seem a bit rude for me to say "HERE'S THIS IDEA, GO DO SOMETHING WITH IT" and expect no one to complain.

So with all of that out of the way if anyone has any opening ideas for plot, combat, etc that they would like to discuss, now would be a good time to do so as well as if they would like to start collaborating before we seriously get the ball rolling.

I'm working on a large-scale sci-fi RP with a friend, but I'd be interested to see how KHI handles a gritty, serious-tone sci-fi RP like Dark City is seeming, so I'd be glad to help how I can. Skype or something might be a lot quicker than posting if you want quick idea back-and-forth bouncing.
