How many of you would be interested in an online game?

It could be either chat based, or play by post.

It would be intended as a serious to semi-serious game and could possibly be a very long-running game. A lot of material would be used from the fan pages and fan information, as well as Rifter material and standard source material in the main book.

EDIT: This does not mean that just because you wrote up an O.C.C. that you think is awesome and win that you will get to use it. All fan material is subject to GM review and possible modification. It will be subject to approval, and will require impressive background and historical information, and a complete character sheet (if given the greenlight to try it) the farther from the game fit the character's origins are.

I would consider running it as close to Systems Failure primary material as possible, but some O.C.C.'s from other settings would be allowed, as would the updated skills list.

Let me know what you guys think.

Well, with play-by-post format, you can post every so often, like every few days. Only problem is it can be quite slow sometimes.

Some notes... Dead Reign material may be acceptable, especially the Hound Master, Ordinary Person, Scrounger, and Soldier OCC's. Shepherd of the Damned is possible, but would go by another name. Reapers are going to be scrutinized, but could still be acceptable. Not because I don't like them, but because they might not fit right. And could be considered a variation of Splatterpunk.

Beyond the Supernatural Ordinary People OCC would be allowed, as it's almost identical to the Dead Reign version. Other Beyond the Supernatural classes would be allowed, with a little conversion.

The skills lists from BtS2nd ED and Dead Reign will be in use. Rifts: Ultimate Edition should also be acceptable for a skills list. Of course Systems Failure skills are still perfectly acceptable.

As a GM I would be expecting a certain minimum level of completion for character sheets. The more complete and well-written the character's background is, the more rewards the character will start off with, including XP bonuses, better weapons and gear.

If you have read to this point, and still think you would still be interested, lemme know.

I will be hosting the game on The Storm Watch. Provided there is enough interest, of course.

I'd be interested in playing a pbp as well. Must warn though, never played SF, though I do own the book and like the game (just never had anyone to play it with).

Cool to know, Observer.

What kind of games do you prefer?

Ones where I don't have to be the GM! :lol:

Seriously though, I'm up for whatever kind you want to throw at us. This would be my first PBP game (I usually do Rifts or PF with a small group around a table in my kitchen), so I'm really very interested in seeing how it works and what I could bring to the table, so to speak.

Were you planning on the characters being based out of NORAD or an independent group? Any preferences as to the types of O.C.C.s you'd like to see in the group?

I would prefer fresh, new characters vs trying to import a previously rolled OR written character.

Further notes: This game is most likely going to be in the Midwest of America as part of the Great American Bug Hunt. NORAD will be seeking to consolidate a foothold by coordinating efforts from local militia and mercenary units. Expect to see things like the Lone Star Cavalry making appearances.

Support from or for the Gulf States could come into play as well.

When do you want the character sheets by? And do you care what format they're in (I usually use a custom Excel spreadsheet, but don't object to using something else)?

INvolved, send me a blank sheet of yours to guardian.mind@gmail.com I'd like to take a look at it. I might adopt it for my own use.

We will see.

I do have a preferred format, which I'll post shortly. I also need Nimmy to set me up a board on The Storm Watch, but I can't seem to pin him down long enough to get it done. Work and all that, I suppose.

But that can wait a few days as I can take sheets by email or board PM.

Ok, character sheet example has been sent.

I'm still mulling over the various O.C.C.s in the Systems Failure book. I don't have Dead Reign or Beyond the Supernatural. How soon do you want the character sheets?

Alright boys and girls. The basic board is up, but is not open for play yet.

I have several interested parties in the game, so get stuff to me as soon as you can.

If you don't have an account on The Storm Watch, now is the time to make one.

The Storm watch can be found at: http://thedeificnmi.com/maelstrom/index.php

You can find the game board here for my game: http://thedeificnmi.com/maelstrom/viewforum.php?f=104

:( Upon further consideration of my overly busy life, I'm afraid I'll have to bow out of the game before it even begins. So sorry. I'm really bummed too because I have an awesome background story for the character I wanted to run, but I can't find the time to actually sit down and write it! Any chance that I could join the game later this summer once I get a few commitments out of the way?

If the game is still on, most likely.

Thanks for your interest so far, and thank you for getting in touch.
