    Hey guys. To those of you who have started a successful universe I was wondering if you'd like to contribute to a list of questions I've been drafting for people who want to post new FFRP universes. It would be greatly appreciated. Hopefully this can become a useful resource for the future of FFRP


    Universe Creation list:

    Property of Celtois Corp ©


    The W's

    Who: What sort of characters do you want to see in your world.
    -Character creation sheet
    It never hurts to have one pre-designed for your universe
    -Special rules unique to your universe related to characters
    Are all characters Velociraptors? Is divine magic allowed, etc.
    -Feel, what sort of feel do you want with the characters is this a more serious universe where tragic characters would be welcomed or would you like more comedic characters to inhabit your new universe

    Where: So what exactly is this world of yours?
    - Obviously where is is set? A small border kingdom in the middle of nowhere?A giant demiplane that is a huge gladiatorial arena, a space tricycle?
    -Is there a particular genre that it fits in? Or is it like the nexus a big wobbley blend of genres
    -On a broader level what are the basic understandings of the world and it's history.

    When: When is this when is that, and so forth?
    -When is the time period, is this the age of steampunk. A primeval world, or somewhere in the future?
    -When is it in the course of history, is there anything important that happened before the current time period that the players aught to know.

    How:
    -So just how are the characters involved in your story, or the world?
    -Why are they needed?
    -What are the characters going to be doing?


    The meta game aspect

    What:
    -What makes your universe stand out, how is it unique?
    Why would I choose your universe over on of the countless other ones.
    -What ooc assumptions are being made in your universe? Are there rules that all the characters are too follow. A storyteller or do all the stories originate from the players themselves.
    -Does your world have a story? If so what does the conclusion of it mean.

    I think DC your point is really solid and will have to be considered in the decision. Though I have to admit. I'd love to recreate the atmosphere of Metropolis here in the Nexus... >.>

    I'd totally consider restarting it. But I know I'm not always that active either. So it would require at least a decent number of players.

    I also wouldn't mind making sure restarting it would be okay with Kael. It was kind of his baby.

    Yeah I didn't think that the entire feel of it could be brought through to the NEXUS but the basic ideas, a group of superheroes dedicated to capturing and imprisoning supervillains and keeping them within their facility, and generally highly regulated so they could be punished for hurting the non-supers.

    However as you say that might have a lot of trouble flying in the nexus even it it was mostly not seen by outsiders.

    Hmm so that would be three of us.

    It was partially where I got my idea for Lightning Lass from

    Yeah sure I'll move over to the FFRP thread.


    Thank Mod for Multiquote!


    And now, onwards with the discussion.

    Indeed multi quote is one of the greatest things to happen in a while

    Okay so I've dug up all the old Metro threads.

    List:

    Metro OOC
    Metro Registry
    Metro Residence #12 Highburn Street
    Metro Lucky Luigi's Diner
    Metro Random Locations

    EDIT:

    There is also | Metro The Hollow

    (Of these are there any that you think I shouldn't revive with the rebirth of Metro?) So far I was thinking of leaving Lucky's to the dust since it was a player run Cafe and I don't think Two Bit is coming back. However a Cafe or Tavern might not be a bad thing to have.

    There has to be a tavern. Which would be a cafe in a modern world. All adventures start there.

    Actually just did a bit of searching around in the threads and found out there was a tavern that I had failed to recall.

    It's called The Hollow

    Link to OOC thread from way back then due to it being relevant to seeing if people are interested.

    OOC Thread Read OP

    There is a certain dystopic feel to it that might not appeal to everyone. It's also generally pretty serious.

    That's what I was hoping. But it depends on how many people would actually go for the whole Dystopic future feel, and how many would prefer a more light and airy justice league style universe.

    (I'm so in favor of going the dystopic route if you couldn't tell. )

    It's the brain child of two players who used to play here.

    Being that it is there baby and I only played in it I'm not the best person to explain it but I'm one of those who still remembers it.

    If you want to see what Kael, one of the creators has to say about it. He talks all about how it works and the idea and history in the first post of the OOC thread which I linked earlier on this page.

    It's essentially a city setting, with a dystopic totalitarian government. It's full of people who have special powers as a result of genetic mutations who are imprisoned there so they can't threaten society.

    So it's basically a prison-city for mutants?

    I'd prefer a slightly more X-Men/Heroes-ish feel, but I could work with the dystopia.

    The character I have in mind is actually a variation on Shrike, for those who know her, or rather her pre-Exalted version, as a teenager with zappy electrical powers who can also teleport herself through power lines.

    I actually like the dystopia - it gives it a unique feel. From what I've read I was pretty much right about that "Prison-city for mutants" thing, and I think that has a really cool feel to it...

    That said, I'd have to drudge out so many power-concepts and try to see if I could make any work

    Yeah prison city for mutants is a pretty accurate descriptor of the whole place. It's kind of a reverse of the whole high fantasy you often get in the nexus. Down dark and dirty. Which is pretty cool.

    I was thinking of grabbing Lightning Lass and having her be broken, in Metro, Just another person who's life and hope has been shattered by the darkness of the Metropolis.

    Course she'd start out as a hero. Before being broken by the good detective.

    I keep trying to think of something, and I keep thinking of some dude with minor auditory powers who runs a rave warehouse/nightclub deal. I don't know why 'dystopia' instantly provokes images of raves with shady things going on in some back room with the pounding of the beats dull against the walls...

    Man, my brain needs to start working with me.

    If you would like to see what other people have done I can link you to the old character registry.

    While all those characters won't exist likely when the reboot happens. But they might give you some neat ideas. I can also link you to some of the darkest RP that went on in Metro if you'd like, it was pretty. Disconcerting to say the least.

    ..If you really want here it is. This was among the darkest RP I remember from Metropolis. Don't say I didn't warn you though.

    Read the first 10 pages to see what I mean.

    That's really the worst it every got I think.

    Hi, all! I'd like to start playing here. :) It should be noted that this is also more or less my first time doing ANY online roleplays that aren't over e-mail with one real life friend. I think I can handle it?

    So, in terms of the type of game I'd like to play, I'd be interested in a standard high fantasy game. Are there any going on?

    Failing that, I've always been curious about some kind of magic academy type RP.

    Standard answer would be Nexus.

    Well the NEXUS is something I would have described as high fantasy.... a while back. But post empire it has shifted even further to complete free form. It's generally a high power. Heroic/Vile game. That is fairly light and fluffy.

    It has characters from all sorts of genres and time periods. Basically if something has existed anywhere there is a good chance you might find it in the NEXUS.

    If you aren't used to FFRP you might find the lack of plot weird at first. Basically you have to just have character goals and work your way into things that are related to your characters as you go along through interaction with other PC's.

    I'm not the greatest example here so I'll let one of the RPers who actually player regularly answer your questions but I hope that helped.

    It did help, actually! Thanks. :) I'm gonna try to make up a character and add it to the Nexus Directory then.

    Glad to have done you some good then. I'd suggest Trogs as a starting place. Given that it is a nice neutral ground.

    There is some truth to the idea that all adventures start in a tavern.

    And that thing about any and all types existing here? Very true. I have an Autobot, three Marvel-based characters, and a Keyblade wielder.
