The Helldragon added RisingDragon as a friend.

RisingDragon: So apparently Morph's been making a DnD campaign based off of the old Project Epsilon site over on the Giant. Who would've thought.
10 August 2012 at 19:29
Now, why in the world would he do that? Through DnD no less? FATE would be a lot better to do the crazy shit you guys were doing.
19 August 2012 at 1:11
A lot of it seems based off of my own YKIC site, which kinda drops the whole virtual reality thing and is a lot less crazy in scope.

In case you're interested in seeing what it's about: http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=251075
19 August 2012 at 1:52
Man, look at all these words and shit. You didn't put in any stuff we did on the IO RPG, did you?
19 August 2012 at 23:16
My own YKIC is completely unrelated to IO's story. And as for everything in that post, that's all Morph, except for descriptions taken from my site for their respective regions.

So as far as I know, no, none of Matt and company's shenanigans are on there.
20 August 2012 at 0:49
Thank God. Less damage we do there, the better.
20 August 2012 at 2:45
And since I can't find out how to start a new thread on a stream: I might want your assistance to experiment with a form of GMless roleplaying, with stats and shit. And I really, REALLY want to try Marvel Heroic Roleplaying.
21 August 2012 at 22:40
GMless roleplaying? And I don't know what Marvel Heroic Roleplaying is... beyond it involving the comic company, if my guess is correct.
22 August 2012 at 1:04
It's an RPG based on Marvel Comics, yeah. Very narrative, but still a bit dice-throwy.

See, I hate being a GM proper. Hate the paperwork. But freeform shit? Great! So I want to try and find a happy middle ground - where some dice can determine how the story goes without, like, having to prep scenes and baddies to fight ahead of time. Less freeform combat, more actual random results.
22 August 2012 at 1:19
I'm surprised no one's written a generator program for that kind of work yet.
22 August 2012 at 1:27
If I can intrude, to create a new Stream post, you can write your message at a top of any Stream page in the "Thought" box. You can post either on your own page (hit the Stream link at the top-left of any board page to reach it), or view someone else's Stream to send them a public thought. The targetted person will get a notification alerting them of the incoming message!
22 August 2012 at 2:06
They have and I own it. The trick is to see how MUCH it needs to be used. My mistake beforehand was to rely on it exclusively. My experiment this time is to give it the support a freeform RPG offers, but with the plot twists and dice-based combat and challenge resolution an official RPG system uses.
22 August 2012 at 2:06
@Doc: Don't get that option on RD's stream, which is why I was confused.
22 August 2012 at 2:10
Oh. Add him as a friend first (grey box should be present near the top right), then you'll be good to go! :) I guess I should make that more obvious.
22 August 2012 at 2:13
Oh, that's why. Okay, it works now. Thanks, Doc.
22 August 2012 at 2:16
Stalker Doc to the rescue!

I'm not sure how I could help with this program and the system. I've literally got 0 experience working with paper RP systems like DnD.
22 August 2012 at 2:16
It runs on yes/no questions that are increasingly (or decreasingly) true and false, with random events that pop up every so often. Really, you'd ask a question and feed it in the program (a .swf, in this case) and see where it takes you.

As for the RPG, character sheets would be easy. Only thing I'd run is the Doom Pool, a dice pool for NPC characters.
22 August 2012 at 2:18
Since I'm just spotting this now, to answer your first question: because d20 is one of the few tabletop RPG systems I am familiar with. I'm also familiar with Exalted, but that one is just hell to make stuff for, however awesome it otherwise may be.

Though since the biggest parts of making a setting is not tied to mechanics, it could easily all be used with the FATE system or other ones. I hear Mutants
10 September 2012 at 17:05
I'm guessing you were gonna say Mutants and Masterminds, but that gets pretty technical and wouldn't be great for a forum. The less overhead, the better.
10 September 2012 at 23:21
I was yeah. Darn cut-off limit for Stream posts. Didn't even know there was one.

In any case, no matter the system, it'd probably need a good amount of homebrewing anyway.
11 September 2012 at 6:25
RisingDragon: It's weird. I'm not in any position to really do or maintain any RPs (hell, my own site's suffering because of it), but... part of me REALLY wants to do a redo of our story on the RPG thread.
29 April 2012 at 5:48
I'd pick and yank parts, but I'd make it suck much, much less. What would you keep?
1 May 2012 at 4:44
Out of all that I contributed to it?

... not a whole damn lot, admittedly. Would end up using better-developed characters. Wouldn't have to rely on poorly-thought-out godmod powers or amnesia to cover for backstory.
1 May 2012 at 6:58
Same here. Better characters, better character arcs. Helena needs a lot of improvement. Arc 2 Hugo is pretty nice for the most part. But I've learned a lot doing tabletops, so I'd change a lot.
1 May 2012 at 22:00
Yeah I've been learning much about RPing in general from Rib, including a lot of common pitfalls.

I remember you wanting to do a Mass Effect world in Arc Three. I think you mentioned Thresher Maws? I've been playing Mass Effect 1 and 2 recently, it turns out I'd know what the hell was going on if we ended up doing such a world.
1 May 2012 at 22:13
Well, the idea was that the main hero would've met an alternate version of himself as Commander Shepard. In that world, the hero would've gotten the Ironstorm armor for the first time to fight off a Thresher Maw with that armor's ultimate attack, Distortion Cannon.
2 May 2012 at 22:18
Ah, okay then.
2 May 2012 at 22:54
I figure Helena's always gonna be involved. What about Matt? I wouldn't be using R.D. or Alasea again.
4 May 2012 at 3:08
He wouldn't return for obvious reasons. I'd use another character, maybe the planned protagonist for Arc Three.
8 May 2012 at 1:49
Hmm. I would probably need to reconsider the characters I'd be using then. One of them may prove too similar to that character.
8 May 2012 at 2:13
Eh, maybe him, like I said. I'd have to pick and choose with story arc I wanted to go with.
8 May 2012 at 2:22
Well, the characters I have in mind work well with any dimension-hopping story. Work well enough out of it but work best within such.
8 May 2012 at 2:27
Whomever I'd pick, he'd need to be more positive and have an unexpected, slightly eccentric kind of personality. More of a role model and an interesting read.
8 May 2012 at 2:31
Someone like that would help contrast Roas then.
8 May 2012 at 2:36
I dunno. All in all, I'd do many things very differently. More planning, more etc.
8 May 2012 at 2:38
Such is the wonders of experience, I suppose.

2 April 2012 at 2:23
Check all the stuff along the taskbar up top and investigate every menu in each one of those sections.
2 April 2012 at 2:31
Already did that. Didn't see anything.
2 April 2012 at 2:37
Also dig through your profile menus...I think one was lurking in IM. Hell, I forgot where Derpy was. Rin was my hard-to-get.
2 April 2012 at 2:39
Already got the one in the IMs. Found Rin by looking on your stream, actually.
2 April 2012 at 2:40
I got Rin from the Rin thread. Looks like they might be randomized.
2 April 2012 at 3:03
That's what I meant. Saw Daveris give you the location to Rin, so I went there and got it myself.
2 April 2012 at 3:03
Oh. Well, I still don't know where Derpy is, so I just hard-checked every area I could think of.
2 April 2012 at 3:05
Same here, still no luck. 'bout the only thing I haven't done yet is check each thread individually.
