    Re: PHANTELD:Online

    okay but if you die in the game do you die in real life

    There are some things I really like about this: the split focus between game-world and irl-world in particular really stands out. I'm a little worried about the stats thing, especially in regards to levelling: how will you be managing that?

    i swear to god

    The stats will level as the players do. For instance, a buster could start with, say, 12 attack at level one, then go to 13 at 2, and so on, to a cap of 100.

    Re: PHANTELD:Online

    i'm not even close to sorry

    Oh, I guess I was a little unclear earlier. Will you be giving players levelups based on a whole exp system, or will you just award them levels at certain points in the plot? Additionally, will combat be very number-crunchy? I guess I'm just a little wary of anything too statsy and numerical.

    Re: PHANTELD:Online

    thats not surprising

    Levels will be awarded based on how much somebody participates in a fight. There's no set in stone system, though. Sometimes it might just be at plot relevant moments, like you said.

    Combat will be somewhat akin to the Glitz Pit's system, in that there is a bit of strategy and what not that goes into it, but it won't be mathy.

    Aaaaaaah I haven't finished my app yet aaaaaaaaaah

    Kiwi why do you do this to me

    Another note on mechanics: we have worked out a lot of other game details such as damage calculation and technique mechanics, but those details will only come up if they're plot-relevan. That is to say that even though it takes place partially in an MMORPG, this RP won't actually keep track of the majority of the numbers and whatnot.

    Koopario, I'm afraid you'll have to specify what you mean by letting you know?

    Re: PHANTELD:Online

    man I could really go for a smart mmo rp, especially after watching Log Horizon. But I can't play as a dude playing as a chick, can I? I know it's VR stuff but what if my character is delusional enough to trick the system?

    if not I'll just try my hand at a regular brawler type, buuuuuut

    also it'd be great to know how many characters you're looking for, and how long signups will be (please say at least a week plzzzzzzzz)

    you could just play a girl though

    In universe, it's plausible but it'd work funny. The game uses a full body scan to get the proportions of a player's body, and an internal camera in the HMD to recreate a person's face, but gender has to be input during character creation. Therefore, a male player could be a female character, but they'd have their regular face and proportions, so there's really no reason to.

    I'm looking for 6 players, and I'm keeping signups open until the 21st.

    Re: PHANTELD:Online

    but I always play girls, this'd be taking it to the next level :u

    but yeah it's fine, the full body scan etc. is the kind of information I'm looking for. Rest assured my app won't challenge the rules, male brawler it is.

    Re: PHANTELD:Online

    ...After a few days mulling it over, I remembered why I stopped RPing; It's because I stopped feeling comfortable doing so.

    Which means, with apologies, I have to withdraw before it starts. I can't....I'm sorry. It just...doesn't anymore.

    Re: PHANTELD:Online

    I thought dying in the game and then dying in real life was a requirement for this sort of thing., what's going on here?

    Considering how you seem to have thought it through and how appropriate it is I wont' take much issue with the system itself, and plot and setting are covered already. I do approve.

    Approvals: 1/2

    Due to school being completely time consuming at the moment, I'm going move the due date for applications from the 21st to the 24th at midnight. 3 whole days, whoop whoop.

    I never could resist the lure of a Kiwi RP. And this is a perfectly good excuse to play as a griefer!
