Title: Star Control RPG
Post by: Scott on December 13, 2004, 05:10:49 am
Hey, I'm not a mod there or anything, so don't hold them responsible for this shameless plug.  :D

Anyway, is a site where we each roleplay a race from Star Control. There's rules for building colonies, building mines, building ships, ship speeds and such... and all the interactions between races are roleplayed by the players. The current game is kind of a what if scenario, we're playing in a galaxy where the Ur-Quan never arrived, and seeing how the assorted races would have wound up without the war. Though the GMs have something else up there sleeves to kick our asses, I think.  

Anyway, I'm goin' out of my way to post this here because there's a couple races open for play, and I figured where better to find players? The Utwig, the Zoq Fot Pik, the Ilwrath are all open for playin'. I'm here because I just don't want the lack of these races to slow the game down for me. ;)

If you think you'd like to play, come check it out.

So wait I sit there by hand and do all those calculations on how much minerals come in and out?

"playing" is all done on a message board? no visual interface?

Really nice idea, but I'd rather have a database keep track of all the ins and outs of my and your money.....

All the other actions can be done by hand but really hmm dunno about it :-\

Wont let me sign up either, says page doesn't exist....

It's about the roleplaying much moreso than anything. And the resources aren't complicated, each mine you own contributes a set amount of RU per turn.

It's no more complicated than a tabletop RPG like D&D.
