    Only one guild? Blasphemy! As soon as I get back to my PS3 I will start my own guild of People Who Should Statistically Be Dead Six Times This Month Alone!

    Also, what level do we want the tech in our schizotech (Though it's more off a tent-tech situation) to be? Modern day? Renaissance? Futuristic? 1920s? Neither?

    Steampunk. Like a mixture of Schizotek and Lockutas.
    And I agree, races can't stand for the character. But races are fun, too, to make and to play. As for classes....well, that's not really applicable here.

    Well, I'm pretty sure that as far as tech goes, we'd probably have mostly modern guns and makeshift melee weapons, though it's up to you guys if you'd want the odd laser in there was well. They probably wouldn't be very efficient as weapons, though, since you'd need energy to use them and there's not a lot of that.

    Guns in general I'd figure would be around, but used sparingly due to conservation of ammo, so the most common weapons would probably be baseball bats, planks, crowbars, sledgehammers... maybe some crazies who fletch their own hunting bow-and-arrows. No swords or anything like that though, unless you can come up with a good reason why someone would have them (like they raided a museum or something, which is possible).

    Most clothes and armour would probably be stitched patchwork, with the odd flak jacket or clothes made of hides of mutated animals. I think in general the tech is low, but still has obvious hints of a modern or post-modern society like in clothes people find and the crumbling buildings and such. People would still wear a lot of the leftover clothes like jackets and things too, especially if it was a permanent winter and they needed to keep warm.

    There might be scraps of military who still managed to keep weapons and bullets in production, maybe even vehicles, but I would imagine fuel is hard to come by.

    Does that work?

    :
    As well as that, I figure there might be the odd small group with a little bit of tech, but I guarantee you it'd be hard to justify many non-military groups having anything but random tech in their possession. A building or two will probably work, but with the world being kinda destroyed and all, most things would need generators to keep power, and generators need fuel.

    Well I was thinking about having my character be the raving mad conspiracy nut with a steampunk (What? Coal and wood is easier to 'acquire' than gasoline) Laboratory/Library from where some frightful souls claim lightning is created.

    Does that fit in le grande scheme or is it too ridiculously out there with the jellyfish?

    Well, it's pretty much nothing like what I've been pitching... I mean, it's not that I want to say "NO YOU CANT DO THAT " but like, currently I'm talking about a world where pretty much the entire country is essentially a sparse scrapyard covered in snow with shanty-towns and raiders (at least, in effect it is) and you're saying you want a steam-powered laboratory that creates lightning. It's a little... out there.

    Edit: Mind you, as I'm saying this, I'm alt-tabbing back into Fallout 2 and stabbing scorpions with a spear in an abandoned temple.

    Not really supposed to take the lightning part seriously (hence why it was frightful souls and not the much more rational crazy scavengers) but I see what you mean.

    What if his greatest achievement in the technological sector consists of a light bulb powered by a steam engine? With his 'base' being little more than a makeshift forge and anvil?

    Oh, I wouldn't at all be opposed to a guy who was trying to, in effect, get technology up and running again through a series of overcomplicated and probably more-trouble-than-they're-worth inventions and doodads. That'd be kinda funny. Especially if his greatest achievement was a steam-powered machine which works through gears, pulleys, and a coal-fire that towers above him, all just to power his little shack or something.

    That is even better! I can't believe I thought of such a genius idea!

    Maybe a Doc Brown-esque refrigerator, a suit of armour that serves as the tea-maker. Yes, I see potential with this idea >:)

    Where he gets the coal will forever remain a mystery, though

    Sounds like the beginning of an interesting plot. My idea for a character would be a radio presenter trying to broadcast the news through the wastelands. He would have taken over small radio station, although it would have a short range. (Of course, he wouldn't know that )

    Also, how did we survive the nuclear war? (or whatever other hazards happened) Would it be living in Fallout-esque vaults, or are we just lucky?

    Jut kidding, I suspect that the survivors where just lucky enough to live far enough down the hitlist and lucky enough to find a safe spot (The deserts, the secret facilities beneath mount Dashmore, New Jersey) where the bombs didn't hit.

    I like this idea alot - I actually think that if we made it just Human rather than all the fantasy creatures it could be much more poignent - although possibly more clichéd...

    Oh look, I made a character for it - No idea about name yet or back story, but I can work on that...

    I rather think races can add flavour if used right. Also, I make it a point to play a goblin wherever I go, because it's my opinion goblins give something instant awesome.

    And yeah, I thought it'd be cool to have a magic apocolypse. If we aren't doing fantasy in this plot, I may not participate. That's not meant as a threat to make DL go along with it, though. It's just that I have no idea how to play in a non-fantasy.

    Scifi is just like fantasy, only instead of 'a wizard did it' it's 'newmetaltanium did it'

    EDIT: Seriously though. I'd prefer it to be either scifi or fantasy. If i wanted everything to be realistic, i would turn off my computer and go outside.

    Plus, I don't really want magic and stuff because I'd rather we have at least one non-fantasy plot, and I don't think we ever restricted people to DnD classes anyways. As far as 'races', I'd say normal human races and maybe allow some leeway for mutants.
    I'd also say we set this in a world similar to earth but not earth, or at least never specify where anything is or anything about the world before the nukes.

    Kinda makes me wonder if my reading of every single post is overdoing it.

    Especially since I do it for about ten FFRPGs as well...

    I'm going to try and make an intro comic or two just to set the scene so we can expand further, but you have no idea how hard it is to avoid starting with "War. War never changes."

    What about a season analogy?

    "Winter always come. you can pretend that summer lasts forever but in the end, the old fades away and the earth will be bare of life"

    Or some other quasi-poetic nonsense to make the fact that we screwed up big time sound better

    Every day, the sun rises. Every night, it falls.

    Every morning, the sky turns bright.

    The darkness returns each and every night.

    They say it still rises far in the sky...

    But we have not seen through these years of unrest.

    Since our now-eternal winter said good-bye,

    There is naught but cold darkness.




    That's quasi-poetic =D it even rhymes a line or two!

    Oh, no, I never said I was having trouble coming up with a narrative. I was just having to avoid starting with the Fallout line we all love so much.

    And I've played Fallout 3, exactly once. I do know when it takes place, what the timeline differences are and why the giant naked mole rats make perfect sense. I like reading up on old games, amazes me how creative they were back then.

    And now my quest continues to find more stuff to make people who actually played these games feel old!

    I wouldn't call a game series released five years after my birth 'Old' when I'm only going to be 18 this month.

    Well, I was joking but I actually would call a game made five years after my birth 'Old' (capital letter and all )

    But why is that a bad thing? 'Old' stuff is still around for a reason, it's very good old stuff :D

    And just so I don't forget: Congratulations! Does that mean you can do exactly one more thing that you don't need more than last year?

    Okay guys, here's the SUPAR SERIOUS INTRO. Though obviously each character will have their own level of serious, the world takes ITSELF seriously at least.
