    Allright guys, there's fifty of us for each of them. Secure the civilians and watch out for the plasma, those will kill you stone dead with a single hit.

    That said, even high end infantry can't truly shrug off anti tank munitions without a care. But there IS a reason that the supranational organization exists...
    And naturally, I'd change 'some' things up... :drevil:

    How much interest would I get for a Naruto Dynasty Quest (in vein of this one and that other good one)?

    These two were great, CKII style quests that had also great writing. The thing is I don't want to follow the CKII model exactly. Would putting a rpg spin on it hurt the popularity?

  6. Excuse me. Would anyone be interested in a worm gang quest, or grand RP?

    In either you would be controlling a gang in a wormverse city. (Not Brockton Bay) The quest all the players would be the same gang, and the GRP would have the players as separate gangs in the city. If anyone would be interested in playing I would like to know. If you have an interest in helping me beat a system for the game into submission that would be amazing, as would any betas or people who could help with building the city.

    Any interest?

    I would be somewhat interested. However I'm not American, and I would bet money that the setting would end up being a city in USA anyway, so I don't know how much help I would be.

    Could I suggest Chicago for the setting? I've been reading Dresden Files lately.

  10. Would you prefer a quest or grand RP?

    I don't have any experience with a Grand RP, and it sounds time intensive, and that's not something I have in abundance. Quest is a lot easier to get into.

    Grand RP sounds like the more interesting option, just for the fact that it would be more dynamic and varied.

    So. . .I've been thinking. It seems there's been a couple Dragonball quests, but they always have the players be a saiyan for some reason.

    I was wondering if anyone would be into a Quest where you play a Human? I always liked the underdog story as a dramatic thing, and Tien and Krillin were both useful in different ways even against enemies like cell. . .

    My Idea would start the players off in Dragonball and then Timeskip to Z afterwards.

    Anyone interested?

    What do you need to know, I live in Chicago. . .
     
  15. Would anyone be interested in a Code Geass quest where you guys play as an AU Kallen who lost lost her mother and brother during the Britannian invasion of Japan when the Britannian Embassy they took shelter in was attacked by the Japan military and she was saved by Britannian forces?

    Without her brother and all his Japanese friends filling her life with Japanese nationalism and anti-Britannian sentiments, Kallen grows up in the Britannian Homeland with basically no emotional connection to Japan beyond all the bad memories she has. She still blames Britannia for creating the mess that got her family killed, but she doesn't really have anyway to vent all that frustration in a productive way like she does in the canon timeline, so she joins either a military academy or some knightly order so she has something to fight for.

    The quest itself will focus completely on Kallen herself for the most part and character progression will be split into Skills that she can improve as well as Talents that she can acquire to further boost her capabilities.

    I would note that Chicago has several Canon Capes*, which you may be able to use (Or not want to use). That of course, depends on timeframe (Setting it several years before canon would for example, make the Chicago Wards out of the picture).

    *The Chicago Wards, Revel, Myrradin, the Folk, and maybe even Weaver herself, depending on timeframe.
     
  17. As I said earlier, I'd prefer the RP.

    It'd be interesting! The big hurdle to tackle once you get to Z is "how do you stay relevant without blatantly nerfing Saiyans or ass-pulling power-ups for Humans?". It's pretty clear that even up through the Cell Saga, Tien and Krilling have the skill to stay relevant, but just can't match the power necessary.
    The best approach would maybe be something that has shown up in a couple of the recent DBZ games, which is that Humans never have a "ceiling" on their growth like Saiayans, they just don't get to cheat with emotion-based powerups.

    The way I'm running it is that though Humans can compete with Saiyans through training with ki (They just have to train harder, since they don't get to cheat.) Their primary advantage comes in the form of two things that were prevalent in Dragonball, but not in Z due to the transition from martial arts fantasy, to sci fi.

    Namely Psychic Powers and Magic.

    The way I have it set up is that Psychic abilities let you use clever mucking about with telekinesis and the laws of physics to battle foes above your power level successfully.

    Magic, to Quote Baba Uranai, "Cheats" and technically has no upper limit to what it can be used for.

    Toriyama, by his own admission, forgot that he had established these abilities in Dragonball as Z went on
