So I was thinking in a semi-furturistic America where everything is rescricted and controlled by the government...and there's this group of people who are rebels/outlaws and they are trying to sorta over throw the governemnt or at least fight against it. This RP wouldn't be too ar in the future...
I want dedicated semi/mostly literate people on this. ALso people with ideas, I don't have most anything in this RP planned out, I just saw Thomas Jefferson's quote,
"I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery" And thought something based on that would make a cool RP.
I Really really want this RP to work out so people have to be really dedicated....
So any takers? Ideas?
I'll join, if you'll allow me to. I've been wanting a really dedicated RP for a while now.
I would very much like to join. It'd give me a reason to get on here much more, and I have a few ideas running through my head based on the oppressed society kind of thing.
Sure, both of you can join!! :-D And post any ideas you have, we can figure out/discuss any idea anybody has.
Ok, apocalyptic revolution role play? Count me in. That is my favorite Jefferson quote by the way. I wrote an essay last year about anarchy and used Thomas Jefferson among others to support my thesis xD. So maybe the rebels could be prisoners of war, or they escape a government prison and have intel that could be a real turning point in the war, but they're trapped in enemy territory?
You know, this reminds me a whole lot of a game I played called Red Faction. It's basically the same theme but based on MARS. Cus Mars.
Anyway, I would think of it like in the game. They're a band of rebels, but they're extremely outgunned, outmanned, the works.
How did I know you would want to join, Sorla? :-P :-D
I just saw the quote yesterday, I love it. :-D
Hmmm, that could work, we'd have to think up a reason for the war. We could work with that though, it go with the quote if the prisoners at the prison camp were being used in a sort of chain gang sort of way for labor...
I want everyone's ideas first so that everyone has imput in this RP, that way, hopefully people will stick with it.
Also I need people's imput on how graphic we want this to be. I'd prefer little to no romance, though might be OK, and the violence and languge, well it's an apocolyptic revolution so maybe a bit above PG-13 type stff...what d y'all think?
I'd be fine with extreme violence and graphic language, in fact I'd prefer it. It's so much easier to get into character if your characters are allowed to talk and act like normal non white washed human beings.
Alright, yeah that's fine Sorla, I just don't cuss or have my character's cuss.
Anyway Aircrafter, yeah that'd probably be totally out gunned, except for teh fact in this semi-futuristic America only law enforcement and military are supposed to have guns. Civies aren't allowed to have gun.
Our little group or rebels I was think would have guns, and pretty much everything else illegal in the book, that's they are outlaws and hunted and such....
Yeah, they would have gathered their guns and supplies from the stuff they stole and collected...for their cause. I don't care about language, I can get pretty vile in I have the right too, so whatever is cool with you guys. Violence is cool with me too.
As far as extreme violence and graphic language, I’m with those who prefer it. I’m as graphic as I’m allowed to be.
Instead of a prison, how about something more like a concentration camp specifically for rebels? It would put a more intense spin on the martial law type society.
Hmm..concentration camp..well that could wrk too. They'd get the weapons from mugging/killing/whatevering the guards and such...plus there still could be a chain gang if needed...what do the rest of you think?
And does anyone know two more people who would enjoy an RP like this? ( we could just have us 4 if y'all want too though and not add anyone else.)
Oh by the way for me, I'm not like extremely graphic adn as I said before I don't cuss, in my posts I probably won't go too much over PG-13, but that's just me. Y'all can do what you want with your posts.
And for the romance, are y'all OK with little to none for this RP? I don't really like romance....
And I don't want this RP to be to futuristical, then we have to make up randome weird gadgets and such. It'll be only slightly in the future, maybe 50-75 years? So some weird gadgets allowed but an overload of different technology. That sounds good?
Eww, sticky lovey emotions. Peh.
I like that idea. We don't need 'GIANT SPACE GUNS FROM SPACE THAT SHOOT SPACE' because that'd just be stupid.
Ohhhhhh fun!!!!!!!!!!! Can I join?
((Sure, as long as you can be extremely dedicated, pretty lit, and are OK with possibly rathe rgraphic content.
If you have any ideas to ad to this RP please post them too.))
Sounds awesome! Can I go ahead and start my cherrie? Just the basic skelly? Or do you have any preferences?
Note: I don't cuss but it doesn't bother me when others do.
Ok! What were you thinking plot wise? We could start with them all in prison and they all have to break out? Then they are wanted? Or a few do that then the others try to help hide them? Idk just ideas.
Alright anyway so plot wise:
What about we have this group of epople in a concentration type camp, they're rebels. And they are planning an escape, one day they do escape and steal some of the guards weapons when they do . They run off into the ilwderness to sorta set up base and such. After that it'd pretty much be gathering the revolution, small skirmishes and then the big battle at the end.
That's what I got if y'all have any other ideas, details, or anything you want to add say so. I'm going to make the actual thread on Monday.
