Proposing RPGs (This is optional. Keep that in mind!)

I was thinking we could have something like Pledge to Play. The basic idea is that someone will lay an idea out for an RPG, and people who are interested will 'pledge', or sign up. This is in contrast to simply waiting until the RPG is finished and signing up there, here, the players promise to post and keep it alive as long as possible. Of course, you can quit, and I'm not expecting many people to use this, but from my perspective, it keeps RPGs going to an extent. Credit goes to cpumaster930.

Currently Suggested:

TARDISRPG
To the TARDIS...? It's gone awry. Transferring people away from their homes, the TARDIS goes into different time periods but in an alternate future. Help the Doctor get you and co. back to their respective time periods before something happens!

Pledged: 0
Calls for: 3+

TEKKO HIDZUME [I gave up on the japanese letters] (The King of Iron Hoof Tournament) RPG:
Basically a crossover-ish version of TEKKEN with ponies.
You can choose (and parody the name of) anypony in the
real game, or make your own pony.

I won't bother making it unless I get 4 pledges.

Pledged: 1
Calls For: 4+

POWER RANGERS SAMURAI RPG
Centuries ago, Nighlok monsters invaded our world. They were defeated by samurai who used power symbols passed down for generations. The Nighlok have risen again and plan to flood the earth. But a new generation of heroes stands in their way. They are the Power Rangers Samurai.

Pledged: 1
Calls For: N/A

Kawigama RPG
Plot: Based off Japanese lore, this RPG tells the tale of the humans versus the Kami, a band of spirits. But why do the Kami oppose the humans?

Pledged: 1
Calls for: N/A

Mare Vs. Machine (or other clever play on words that parodies Mann Vs. Machine):
A horde of robots powered by bits has begun to invade Equestria, threatening to destroy it in its entirety. Six mercenaries have been employed to ward back the invasion, and must keep the robots from their ultimate goal of total annihilation of the inhabitants of Equestria.
Meta Specs (stuff that applies to the RPG itself, and has nothing to do with the story whatsoever):
You can only control 1 mercenary, ever. Even if somepony controlling another mercenary gives you control of theirs, whether temporary or permanent, you can only control yours.
Obviously, major characters from the show must stay in character.
The RPG doesn't end if a bomb detonates in Equestria. Instead, a time rewind occurs.
Alicorns are not allowed. End of story.
The mercenary you control has to be a pony of some sort. Changelings are not allowed, but Crystal Ponies are OK.
If a mercenary idles (is inactive) through a wave, they will be removed from the RPG instantly, with no traces.
Battles against robots will not progress unless there are 3 or more Mercenaries, or a wave is in progress. Then again, I guess that time could be used for RPing that doesn't have to directly do with fighting robots.
Other stuff will be added on the topic.

Pledged: 2
Calls for: 2-5

My Life As A Teenage Robot RPG
PLOT:
The show, which takes place Twenty Minutes into the Future, revolved around a Robot Girl named XJ9 (or simply Jenny Wakeman) who was designed in order to protect the Earth by a female scientist, but, after meeting her next door neighbor Brad and his little brother Tucker, decides she would rather live a normal adolescent life. Jenny attempts to fit in at school, but usually fails, with hilarious results.
This is what the RPG is about, taking place in Jenny's town Tremorton, where she learns various life lessons and stops evil villains, all the while getting humiliated at school.
(I'll probably patch this up if I ever post the RPG.)

Pledged: 1
Calls for: N/A

(UNNAMED)
Based off the Mysterious Benedict Society.
We have all gathered together to take a series of tests. (By we I mean us. This is a self-insert.) We are all in separate sessions for the first couple of tests. But we eventually meet, and then a journey spirals outward.
(There will be much more detail if people join, I swear.)

Pledged: 1
Calls for: N/A

Re: Proposing RPGs (This is optional. Keep that in mind!)

Nice idea, although I think it would be kinda tough for me to manage. Would you, or perhaps somepony else like to manage this system?

Speaking of that, I think we should have another Royal Guard election soon. Maybe sometime within the next month.

Nah, I'll just post the election whenever Luna and I agree it's time. You'll know when it's up, trust me.

Re: Proposing RPGs (This is optional. Keep that in mind!)

Sounds awesome. So if we get a certain number of players, then what happens?


"A regular Friday audience, 90 percent feminine and 100 percent well-bred, sat stoically yesterday through thirty minutes of the most cacophonous world premiere ever heard here - the first performance anywhere of a new Violin Concerto by Arnold Schoenberg. Yesterday's piece combines the best sound effects of a hen yard at feeding time, a brisk morning in Chinatown and practice hour at a busy music conservatory. The effect on the vast majority of hearers is that of a lecture on the fourth dimension delivered in Chinese." -An anonymous Philadelphia Record reviewer, on Schoenberg's Op. 36 Violin Concerto.

"I am delighted to add another unplayable work to the repertoire." -Arnold Schoenberg, on his Op. 36 Violin Concerto.

Re: Proposing RPGs (This is optional. Keep that in mind!)

Okay, how about you list all of the proposed RPGs in the first post showing how many players they have?

And how about I rename this topic to Proposing RPGs, then stick it?

Also, will this system be optional or mandatory? Personally, I think this should be an optional system.

Re: Proposing RPGs (This is optional. Keep that in mind!)

i really hate to always complain about stuff, i just can't help it... this is a very convoluted idea. it is not only elitist and snobby, it's pretty much just an unneeded hassle. if you make propose a game, and people back it but then lose interest, even if you get around to making the game, it'll still die after a while, even if you do force them to play. people's preferences change over time, and if the rpg was "good enough" from the beginning, you wouldn't even need these players. basically it's just a pretense. if you make a topic for a game that doesn't get any players, do you think that it's a waste of space or something? the forum has plenty more room in it. you don't have to adopt the scratch tbg moderator's mentality that "everything has to be perfect" or that "unplayed rpgs are an eyesore".

I'm not saying I agree with cpu here, and I almost agree with you, in fact. (We need feedback from complaints just as much as encouraging words. I mean, everyone has different tastes.) It's simply that I thought the bare basics of this was a good idea, that is, that you would propose an RPG and people would sign up to play it. I'm alright with complaints (I've dealt with them more than once in my life, darn Social Studies class), and I'll edit that first post if needed, but I do believe that it's an okay idea to make an RPG and, if people sign up to play it, try to keep it alive with this. This is optional, remember, so it's not forcing people here. It's true that RPGs die in the end, I can't counter that. In fact, coppearlix's Admirers of Soraya died in two pages, and it started at this topic. :lol: Again, anything you want me to change, I'll do it.

it's a flawed system in general. a better idea would be to collaborate on rpg ideas before making the rpg, that'd be something new
