    You could do a whole RP on the fashion woirld, so basically models, designers, editors, students, photographers e.t.c

    You could be more specific and do like a school for upcoming fashion students e.t.c

    I think I'd be the only one interested though....
    I know! Maybe the characters have to fight demons to get their mega-fashionable and colorful skins, and can turn them into clothes! And the demons are all fashion models who can only be killed by beating them in beauty pageants!

    Perfect timing. I just got back into Yu-Gi-Oh. I'll totally sign-up.

    All right, polished off the setting for the ARC Project a bit. First off, a simple banner:



    So, principle's the same as my earlier post, except the ARC Project will have been running for a good decade by the time the RP starts. People have gotten used to the system; dissidents are seen as insane and dangerous extremists--why would anyone want to sacrifice this paradise for the hellhole that is Earth?

    The virtual world is divided into four Dataspaces: Selene, Endymion, Ilion, and Ithaca.

    Endymion is the primary Dataspace, where the vast majority of the Earth's population has uploaded their minds. It's fundamentally identical to the real world; however, many of the minor inconveniences of real life have been eliminated, along with a smattering of the fantastic technology possible in the virtual world.

    Selene is the central Dataspace, directly overseeing Endymion and indirectly supervising Ilion and Ithaca. Selene is the only Dataspace with direct access to the real world, and is home to the ARC Project's leaders and overseers. As such, it is the most highly secured Dataspace, with incredible, physics-defying cyber-defenses.

    Ilion is the ARC Project's military Dataspace; the comparatively few people who reside in Ilion are granted powerful offensive data-abilities, to facilitate the defense of the ARC Project from any virtual threats.

    Lastly, Ithaca is the R&D Dataspace; it was the first Dataspace launched, and serves as a testing ground for advances in the ARC Project's software. It bears very little resemblance to reality, with its users granted access to incredible reality-altering powers. Here, the nature of the virtual world is most evident.

    For powers, I've been thinking of granting each player something called a Dataset: a list of set powers based on the Dataspace their character is from. The Endymion Dataset is simple but adaptable, akin to a basic open-source project. Users who simply want to get on with their new lives can ignore it and stick with the core programming, while those with a little more skill can add some basic features, like enhanced physical ability to simple cybernetic gadgets. The Ilion Dataset is combat and security oriented, being able to create digital weaponry and armor; however, it's not capable of much beyond combat. Lastly, the Ithaca Dataset focuses on data manipulation, able to inspect and alter the surrounding data, but with little effect on the user themselves. And the Selene Dataset is near-godly control over the virtual world, and is naturally unavailable to players.

    Ultimately, it's a sort of a re-skin of the classic Fighter-Mage-Thief trio, with Endymion players being a Thief-analogue, simple and adaptable, Ilion a Fighter-analogue, powerful but limited, and Ithaca a Mage-analogue.

    So, thoughts, criticism, suggestions?

    Sounds good. However, no offense, dude, but I kinda liked the system you used where characters level up based on amount of posts. Perhaps you could bring that back? Inalso like how you give people abilities based on missions. Maybe posts are for leveling up, but missions give people new equipment and bonus abilities in addition to ones earned through level-up? And speaking of, perhaps a way to combine datasets, for like fighter-rogue and magic-knight type classes would be cool too?

    Combining Datasets sounds like a very good idea; I mean, in real life, people use so many different kinds of software at the same time. They hardly stick to the same original brand. For instance, I'm running Google Chrome on Windows while iTunes is running in the background. So yes, it sounds like an excellent and plausible concept.

    My only problem is that leveling by posts might encourage pointless posts and tennising. That's why all of my new RPs dropped that in favor of reward-based system.

    Well, there are ways to make Level-by-Post work - the current incarnation of Armeira is currently froze (ironically, considering the post-incentive ), but in its original incarnation, the Level-by-Post system variant I was using worked very well.

    Basically, posts had to be of a certain length (prevents pointless posts), a full paragraph specifically, and only one post per day counted toward Experience (thus preventing tennising for extra experience).

    So, the ARC Project is more or less complete; all that's left are details for the setting and gameplay. I'll probably have the sign-up sometime in the next two weeks, when I actually have time. Thanks for all the help, guys!

    Anyway, two new concepts:

    Now, Once and Future: Another non-Pokemon RP. This one centers on an organization called the Keepers, who exist outside of reality, observing and maintaining the Tapestry of Time and the real world itself. However, some thing attacks their stronghold, and the Tapestry of Time is distorted and warped, mangling reality with a Parallel Storm: the various temporal planes, neatly arranged in a line, become more akin to a giant, tangled scribble, forcing them to exist in the same metaphysical space, parallel to each other.

    So the Keepers enter reality, trying to figure out what the hell went wrong. As Keepers, they have the power to Parallel Shift, traveling through different time planes with a thought. In doing do, they discover Black Rings, massive gates that bind the planes, preventing the Keepers from restoring the natural order. Along the way, they encounter a group who also have the power to Parallel Shift: the Chasers. But the Chasers have a different agenda...

    This one's more or less complete, plotwise; what I really need is input on the premise itself, the setting, and possible gameplay options. Thoughts, criticism, comments?

    AND

    Trinity: "Disturb not the harmony of fire, ice or lightning, lest these titans wreak destruction upon the world in which they clash." So yeah, this one comes from pure nostalgia. It's much more undefined compared to Now, Once and Future. For now, it's tentatively a Pokemon RP, though who knows, it might work better as a non-Pokemon RP...

    Essentially, it takes the situation in the second Pokemon movie, and places it on an epic scale. For now, all I've got floating around are three rival but cooperative organizations--one each representing Fire, Ice, and Lightning--all maintaining some sort of delicate social/military/political balance, working in concert to restrain/protect some sort of object/monster/power source/pointless McGuffin.

    So yeah, this one needs a lot of input. As always, ideas, thoughts, criticism?

    Basically, if you didn't bother to read the above introduction, this is a sci-fi, semi-futuristic tale of an organization named BLACKOUT that uses their technology to conquer and dominate. But, they face retaliation from The Reborn, a group of rebels with supernatural capabilities. Between those two, we also have The Corrupted, a species able to infect other organic creatures. The Corrupted are mainly led by The Tainted, which are Corrupted humans that have not lost sentience upon infection.

    This RP is unique in that, there is no predetermined ending. Sure, I may throw in some scripted events here and there, but the outcome of the three-way war will primarily depend on the actions of the RPers on the three sides. In short, the plotline changes alongside the members.

    I still need a bit of advice before this thing goes live, though. I already have most of the plot figured out, but I need a few more details to flesh things out a bit, things like gameplay specifics, or criticism on the plot I've made. Anything to add, guys?

    That's actually pretty common these days. See Armeira and Star Force. Anyways, these don't work as well, mostly because people don't interact. You should find a way to make it so people band together in groups. Another problem is NPC interaction. If players do it themselves, it's too easy, they end up just writing about their characters beating people up. If the GM does it, the workload can become too much, and the PCs can only interact with NPCs when the GM is on. Perhaps you could get people to control specific groups of NPCs? Or maybe just a Co-GM or two.
