So! There was once a rather thriving Steampunk RP on the forum, and it has sadly died. However! Would anyone be interested in starting a new Steampunk RP? Not the old one, though I'm sure old character's could be retcon'd to fit the new world. I may even take a few elements from the old world. Characters would, however, start from scratch.

If you're interested, give me a shout out on this thread. :3

So far, interested parties are:
Northern
Artemis
Hecate



If anyone would be particularly up to running it, that would be pretty cool, too. I certainly will help, but my track record for sole ownership of something is a bit. . .shoddy, and I have no delusions otherwise.

Like I said, I'd offer to help run it, but I don't have the best track record either. I'm not too good with getting plot going :/

I'm not generally interested in steam punk, but I may take a look at joining.

This would be a good thing to do. Yes I would like to join, though my steampunkyness might be a little... wishywashy.

I'm brand new to role play ( this is my first post ) but i'm very into steampunk and would be very interested in a lackadaisy/ steampunk roleplay. I've been reading role plays, but was hesitant to get involved, because my schedule isn't entirely under my control. So i probably couldn't moderate but would be happy to help out with steampunky details in creating the world and characters.

Well it might not be a lackadaisy steampunk thing. It could be though, but it could nit as well.

My thinking around this was that we create some sort of world to set this in, and that after that people are free to sort of make up their own stories and roam free so to speak. We could of course try and think up a scenario that would bring together characters for introductions and then open it up from there, or try something more long-term. I think I'm far from the only one who has the experience that people like being able to break away in to their own stories though.

What would you guys prefer?

I like it, so that way we can move things along at our own paces. I mean, we could keep a story arc thing that actually keeps everyone else up with what's going on so that way even side stories are conneocted together. Yeah?

Yea, something that sort of gives a connection between everything, even if it's just in the background. I mean, in the old steampunk world, we had the airships, right? So we had different crews, but you could still have people from different crews meet by saying the ship was in port or... whathaveyou.

As for setting, I have to say that I sort of like the idea of something like a port town/city. It's that sort of place where many people pass through, it's easy to come up with an excuse why people are there. We could even say it's the capital of wherever we are setting this, even more of an excuse for people to be there. But I'm good at letting my imagination run away with me XD you have to stop me if I start being overbearing!

Having a port city would be good, for just those reasons. We could establish some NPCs that we can all share for things like tavern workers, stuff like that, ya know. I definitely think that we should have stories that tie together or at least are conscious of one another. It'll give everyone the experience of a richer world.

A port city sounds swell; there'd be people hustling and bustling too and fro and having a background to tie in the characters together sounds doubly so. If we get some ideas organised here then we could take a tally of the most popular background people would want for the world? Having some conflict could be an idea on how to tie it all together again. The port town could be a pirate's port, like a reinvented Tortuga for example and it'd be a question of ship vs ship vs police...

We should all do a brainstorm thing of ideas. Also we need to figure out who will be in charge...

They could all tie together as they become involved in some sort of resistance movement- something steampunk themed, like a resistance for robot rights, or android rights, or something similar. That would give a nice Epic feel that would be appropriate ( if feel) . In general we should set up loose parameters for the technology. From the pirates idea we're looking at something parallel to the British Empire Days, but do we want this to be a parallel world ( makes geography much simpler, just an adjusted world map) or a whole new one?

To update the list of people interested (I shall do so in the absence of Hecate who is currently relocating between continents) we have, and mind you I will only bring up those I have seen post more than once, if you are seriously interested anyway just poke me:

Northern
Artemis
Hecate
Pen
Ida Artemis

I have never "run" any rp per se, and I don't think we're going to need someone who actively steers it all, but I'll gladly offer myself as something of an organizer. Because... I'm home sick and... I have a lot of time on my hands? Hah, also, I have a character who I'm dying to use so I'm really excited. But we all agree that we should have a port city, possibly the capital of a country, and that we should have a backdrop to bring everyone together. If I'm to be 100% frank, I have to say that an actually joint plot is always fun, but it usually causes a lot of problems when you're more than 4. If one player disappears, real life intervenes, someone loses interest, they have a tendency to stall. We could give it a try, but first off I think we should try and establish the world, or at least parts of it because there's nothing wrong to be able to add mure, and as Ida said, perhaps a few ideas on what is possible through science (personally I wouldn't mind if this was sort of free, given the uh... nature of my character. I'm not biased at all!).

And on the topic of characters, we could perhaps all agree on some of the things we ought to put in a character sheet. I have my own model for how I set them up, but I don't know if I see the need that EVERYONE does it the same way.
