    You know, I've noticed all the recently failed Sci-Fi FFRP attempts have gotten darker, and edgier, and darker, and grimmer, and realisticer, and edgy, and dark. Maybe we need some butter-soft, Crystal Spires and Togas Space Opera going on? I dunno; I just saw this pic and was inspired. Maybe if we got every cheesy, Space Is An Ocean, Golden Age of Exploration, Officer And A Gentleman, and other related tropes and just mashed them together, something might take off? Just a thought.

    Other idea that's been burning in my skull since I picked up the series again recently: Wheel of Time ITP! Mostly so I because I need somewhere to put my Red Ajah sister and my Whitecloak so they can point and laugh at everyone else.
    I mean:
    "Pffffft. You picked Blue!? BAHAHAHAHA! Loser!"
    *casually gentles a nearby Gary Stu male channeller*
    *kicks a nearby man because he is a man*
    And:
    "I hate all Aes Sedai witches, and like drawing the Dragon's Fang on the doors of harmless fools and village healers, inciting riots against lawful rulers because they won't let me ruthlessly persecute their innocent subjects, and long walks on the beach! Also, you looked me in the face, therefore I will hang you as a Darkfriend! Go Light!"
    What could go wrong?

    Every time we try to come up with a Sci-Fi FFRP, nobody seems to want in, or we make it focused too much on 'Hard' Sci-Fi, which is not really any fun. There's also the problem that space is really big. There's so much space for players to be nowhere near each other, which also isn't fun when there's already few people.

    I do love Sci-Fi, though.

    Also, pre-emptively choosing title for WoTitP: "Thread 50 and still nothing has happened"

    Also half the posts will just be describing everyone's clothes and embroidery, and all female dialogue will consist entirely of sniffs and complaining about men.

    The penalty for overpowered characters will be a liberal application of Cadsuane.

    "Space is big" is the main problem. For space rp to work, you really need a GM directing things and keeping everyone together. We thought with the last one we could confine everyone to one system to help things along, but it still had the problem of once you're on spaceship x or planet y, you can't interact with people on spaceship a or planet b. It's a lot easier when you can wander out of Trog's and be at Watchtower as soon as the 60 second post buffer allows you to.

    That, and it's just really hard to start new freeform universes, even if there's a lot of support from the beginning.

    I almost think it'd almost pay to have a Sci-fi plot that didn't focus on the space-faring. Like, everything taking place on a Hub planet. A really big city with lots of aliens stopping by and living there. Of course, then there's the problem of "How do you keep that interesting". Sci-fi seems to be a bit of a hole when it comes to doing it well.

    Rather than a planet, one could always go the route of having some sort of City Ship as the hub area. That way, everyone won't be spread across the galaxy and city-wide events will keep it interesting due to the fact that anything bad happening on the ship will affect everyone.

    And we could say that the ship will dock every few months or so for supplies and trade or whatever.

    Just an idea.

    Confining the setting takes away from the Space Opera appeal though. It's hard to work out the balance.

    I wouldn't join it though, since I can't even get as much RP in the Nexus as I'd like. So discount my opinion appropriately.

    *snerk*

    Jokes aside? I'd love to take part in a WoTitP. Probably a Blue Ajah sister, who actually tries very, very hard to avert the 'snobbish towards other Ajahs' that most Aes Sedai have going on.

    Or towards non Aes Sedai, for that matter.

    A nice Aes Sedai? Pffft. You're no fun.
    ...
    Of course, my own idea is a Red Ajah sister who actually likes tolerates men (and thinks of Gentling as saving them from a horrible, horrible fate), so I suppose I can't complain against breaking traditions. Also she really hates that Reds aren't allowed to take Warders.
    ...
    So she decided to become her own Warder.
    ...
    She is a Saldean, after all.
    ...
    Unless I make her Domani, just for the lulz. Still haven't decided yet.

    But we probably need more support before we can get started. Three Four people is not enough!

    Edit: Also I've decided she's pretty disdainful of the other Ajahs.

    Looking back at that thread, I think the problem with that thread was that everyone was setting their expectations a bit too high... when you've got players clamoring to play the Amyrlin Seat, the Dragon Reborn, The Forsaken... even the bloody Blight... well... I think that level of scope's a little bit too massive. I think things would run much more smoothly if everyone sticks to playing normals. Well... if you can call Aes Sedai 'normal'. There's nothing saying that the plot, if we have one, has to be as far reaching and epic as the one of the books.
