Re: Interest Check

Grimly Sheep is actually a reference to something, that and I thought it sounded cool. I'm glad you like Evergreen Group though. Thanks for the input overall!

Re: Interest Check

I wish you luck Chaotic! Also, hey everyone! I broke down and decided to make a Zeta Gundam roleplay on another site. I know one was done here and it was super incredibly awesome, and that no one here asked for one but I made one anyway because it was a spur of the moment kind of thing. https://www....

Re: Interest Check

Yeah, unfortunately the Gundam fan community seems to be much less active than it used to be, which makes actually running a successful RP very difficult. As I've mentioned in the past, I'd be game for just about anything RP-wise, but personally if we're gonna do UC, I would much rather it be a pos...

Re: Interest Check

Wow all activity here dropped dead on contact of my last question. It's been so bloody long the first entire season of Gundam Blood Iron Orphans finished! Now I have a burning hunger for Universal Century Gundam related stuff after seeing Gundam Thunderbolt, though now I'd rather participate then ru...

Re: Interest Check

I'd imagine both forces would investigate the Space Colony and mostly likely encounter and/or clash with one another eventually inside the colony accidentally or on purpose and you've been very clear on what both forces are fighting over. Yeah! :D So now the only thing that's left is to actually ma...

Re: Interest Check

It's a promising setup that leaves a lot of potential for character/faction motives beyond mercs/pirates who are just in it for the money, as you as you had feared. It can also be tailored for an intimate and short-term initial game while also being flexible enough to transition into an open-ended ...

Re: Interest Check

Also, I think that it's great that you listened to their advice and did a shorter but harder hitting story. Well thank you very much, that makes me feel much better about myself and my capabilities as a person in general. :D I'd laugh if the ending was remaining characters finding out it was never ...

Re: Interest Check

Yeah, that's what I mean. Aim for something short and punchy first, (re-)establish a group of regulars, get a feel for how active we are, then launch something long-term. Might even be worth it to do a little series of short-term games. Have you seen an OVA called Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket? I'...

Re: Interest Check

Knowledge of the game's setting doesn't necessarily prevent people from joining; plenty of people join RPGs for full-on universes they know nothing about :) It can even engender interest in a setting, actually; my first message board RPGs were set in the Universal Century despite my not having acce...

Re: Interest Check

A decade ago (holy moly I am a damn geezer) when I was still newbing around I joined a wing RPG that had a great premise but then somehow got wiped out of the message boards. I would very much like another Wing RPG to restart my interest. Also, IBO RPG, even if it may be too soon for that. I like t...

Re: Interest Check

I swore that when I read Steel 7 that they gave it newer parts and upgraded it to perform at the level in which the prototype did. Here's a quote about the translated description of Harrison Martins Limited Production F91 from an older thread. F91 (Decisive Jupiter Battle Version) One of the F91 un...

Re: Interest Check

Fair enough. I was also under the impression that the mass production units were alot weaker than the original unit so I suppose that along the course of the campaign perhaps Anahiem or SNRI could send some parts that bring them up to full power. There was no indication that the limited production ...

Re: Interest Check

In regards to the Formula series Biocomputer I see no reason why it would allow the user to control bits. It's just a feedback system designed to allow pilots to better control the suit. Besides ranged bit weapons have largely fallen out of use in late UC. The only units that I can think of (besides...

Re: Interest Check

Honestly, I'd prefer an F91 RP as well, but I'm game with a V RP as well, for the same reasons - it's something I've never done before, it's a change of setting and pace. As for the Formula series, I honestly think that even though they are 30-plus years old by the time V rolls around, odds are the...

Re: Interest Check

Btw what year is this RPG going to be set in? UC 153? Is it going to start off at a similar time as V Gundam? No, we're going to start a couple months before the events of Victory Gundam. The starting date will be September 1st, U.C 0152 the day of the Zanscare's invasion of Earth. That way we can ...

Re: Interest Check

Faction-wise, there are a couple of ways to handle a V-era RP that I can see 1. THREE SEPARATE FACTIONS: The EFF, Zanscare, and LM. In which case you have one faction with only two types of MS(The LM), one with only thirty-plus-year-old hardware(EFF), and the space nazis with a whole bunch of diffe...

Re: Interest Check

Question. Is BESPA a PMC or at least has a Paramilitary branch? I got the implication that most Zanscare pilots are from BESPA. Am I wrong, although I think those militia pilots from when they were infiltrating Side 2 weren't. Honestly I don't really feel like playing a Zanscare pilot right now. Bu...

Re: Interest Check

I do agree up to a point. However, I still think that there needs to be some limits in terms of what one is able to do customization-wise, otherwise everyone is gonna want to be running around in WoL-equipped über-mechs. And that's a good way to prematurely kill a good RP. But reasonable modificati...

Re: Interest Check

S.O.P. in my experience is that each faction starts with a limited number of production-model and limited-production mobile suits available to players, with high-performance/prototype units being highly restricted in availability. Customizability is usually somewhat limited, but that of course is u...
