Why is there not a Sword Art Online RP. I think that would be kickass. I'd do it myself, except I have never been good at creating RP's. Unless someone wanted to collaborate with me, then I would do it.
That would work. I'd love to see how the mechanics work out. Most of the .Hack RP's around here didn't really have that much emphasis on MMO elements so it'd be nice to translate things like Weapon Skills and stats into the RP. Eh, I'm just grabbing stuff from the top of my head but whatever floats your boat.
Problem of the matter is, you and I seem to be the only one's interested. No one else has even said like, 'Oh yeah, that would be cool' or 'That sounds like a good idea'. So how would this go if one of us or someone was to do this?
THERE ARE SWORD ART ONLINE SPOILERS IN THIS POST!!!
Well you can't expect the entirety of the RP section to even know what SAO is. Sure, more folks would have a better understanding of how .hack was and to be honest, while they're in the same vein you really can't compare the two (as implied above). I'd imagine there would have to be a level of detail for everyone who visits this thread to have an thorough grasp of how the SAO universe works such as everyone not being able to dual wield or the fact that having a shield is very common. Things like that. Of course I'd imagine that you'd have the 'aw man we're stuck in here' concept on board. But you have to decide the direction you want to take it. Keep in mind even in the anime they didn't make it up to the top floor before being able to leave the game.
Building it from the ground up, you'd have to determine if you'd want an AU or a continuation. If you have any solid leads on you I'd be totally fine with collaborating on this.
IT's true on many levels. In my mind I would want to start it off and just see how far it would get. They did never make it all the way to the top, but we know what the final setting is for the final floor and final boss. It was made evident. Not to say we would do the same character. Heck we could pick someone who wanted to be the final boos type of character. As for monsters and bosses unknown. I think that with some imagination we could come up with our own though the would have to tie into the same concept of the game, so no outlandish types of monsters. I personally have a feeling that this would work along the lines of a .Hack RP. As for info, I think we could give a quick synopsis of the anime. Maybe give the wiki link as a back up for more info. Give a story line along the same as the original. Where the people would start off the same and end up trapped. Basically going setting by setting. And for the floors never before seen or mentioned. Goes the same for the monsters. Just come up with our own and make them unique. Maybe a collab from the players and what not.
I have an idea, but it's not really mechanics based. Just something for character creation. You could always take from the anime how they were made to look like their real selves, maybe make it to where we the players would have to make our characters look like ourselves. Even if we do glorify our appearances. Hey, you could even make it into a type of thing where we play our actual selves and kinda combine KHI with it. Maybe make it to where we play ourselves as we are on KHI, unless you feel that it was something that should have stayed with Shades of Blue.
Just an idea of mine after reading through this. That and my way of saying that I'd be interested in joining.
This rp idea sounds very interesting and has the potential of being something big if everything is worked out well and a good plot made to keep it all together. I would like to put in my two cents in and also recommend to check out another cyber world idea based of a manga I've read called " 1/2 prince" that also follows the idea of .hack and SAO but another perspective. I'd very interested in joining if things take off and ideas are made into something constructive.
