    Reading your replies makes me want to mess around and write something I want to write.

    I've got the start of a cross-over between Star Trek and The Oliver that I had been thinking about doing :) DCDark had given me the name for the ship a while back - like, January, December last year... Here's the notes I'd put together for it so far!

    -----

    The Zeta: Known by her crew as Lucky Number 7, or 'The 7' for short.

    Run in Episodes, such as, 'The Zeta: Episode 1 - journey to the center of the universe'

    You receive a flexi-screen note slid under your door. It glows a faint, electric blue with the symbol of a phoenix. You tap it to open the note, and the message begins.

    The captain of the ship Zeta wants you on board for her maiden voyage. You will be joined by 5 other crewman. Your mission? To explore the galaxy

    OR

    Space Pirates, could always do space pirates, lets go steal shit Guardians of the Galaxy messy montage heist style

    -----
    So! I have continued to work through this idea :) Since DCDark4 helped me flesh it out I wanted to wait util he's unfedded so he can take part. But, that may be a very long time - so instead this will launch sometime after the completion of the Far Lands RP :) 

    Strange2 is helping me in an advisory capacity! He already started with is post about potential pitfalls so I'll respond to those first.

    1. This will take place in an melting pot sci-fi universe - we will draw from inspiration wherever we may find it :)

    2. I'll be playing the captain, and veteran RP peeps will be offered set positions (Dr, Sci officer, Engineering etc - 5 positions total) I will be playing the captain and steering the story / ship but I love collabs!

    3. This will take place on a single ship. I am nothing if not experimental, so we will have multiple RP threads going at once, representing rooms people can move between as their characters move throughout the ship (i.e. The Zeta - Bridge, The Zeta - Sickbay, The Zeta - Away Team etc)

    4. This is not going to be a hard boiled sci fi, this will be loose and easy sci fi just like Star Trek or The Oliver etc. Emphasis will be on character interactions and solving the puzzle of the episode by working together as a team.

    If this kind of role play interests you, send me a DM :) I'd love to talk to you about it.

    Potential Starship Zeta's

    Sounds great to me! Don't know if you need to credit me when you are doing all the work though. 

    I suppose the only thing I'll point out is a logistical issue. I don't really see the need to divide it into multiple threads. That sounds like it could be confusing to my small brain, lots of clicking around to see where things are. Additionally, I feel it would clutter up the front page of the forum.

    I do understand that one thread means posts can get buried but if we are clear on locations I don't think it'd be a large problem.

    Certainly back in the day we had threads where people were on different continents simultaneously, so I think one ship and away teams should be manageable.

    Awesome Dawn and Strange!  Looking forward to it. :)  I'm also going to post this directly to Dark on Discord, because I know he misses the RP pals, and looks forward to getting back 'in' eventually.

    Mmmmm, you're helping me with the foundation in a big way - and I'll be tapping you going forward. You deserve to be noted :)

    Hm, true, true...good point. I can respect that - clutter sucks, and as odd as it seems to me, I've heard that apparently there are people who come read our roleplays - people who aren't taking part! Best to keep it simple.

    I wonder if we could have like a call out at the top of each post noting the location? Like, at the beginning top of the post saying, 'The Zeta - Sickbay' or 'Away Team - in the Ashari Village'? so it's obvious without having to read for a bit to figure it out. What do you think?

    Another couple potential Starship Zeta's



    Let's hear it for DALL-E AI! hehe - once we pick one I'll clean it up in an editor :)

    Sure, that's a fair option. The more I think about it, I'm not terribly concerned. A long as we are reasonably thorough in our readings and try to keep our posts clear, along with the ever important shooting a dm when confused, I feel it'll end up alright. 

    And I do worry about clutter a little bit, just because there are only so many spots on the front page.

    Oh, and I like the ship on the left. The one on the right reminds me too much of the Enterprise. LOL

    i read the dm part as "shooting (with gun) a dungeon master"

    I totally agree. That will be our ship then!

    The only disconcerting thing about it is the staples holding it together, lol - I'll try to fix it in post ;)

    Here's the original size version where it really stands out, hehe

    So... update.  I spoke to Yazi, and he doesn't think he'll be coming back to Torn anytime soon :(.  I'm sad about it, but it is what it is.  Dark is still temp banned, and he is focusing on RL as well.  I miss those guys.  Great RP'ers.  But I do hope they will return to Torn someday.

    Also, I am thinking of using my stock perk to promote the RP forum with a graphic banner. Draw in some fresh, new blood. Muahahaha! Any thoughts? Things it should say or feature?

    Better to focus on what you have then what you don't. There have been many times in this forum's history where we would've killed to have 7 active posters. 

    That being said, this forum has "died" many times, and does seem to come back after each of them.

    Aw :( I guess  he has his reasons? Is it because Dark isn't here?

    Oh, what a great idea! You do some graphics work! :D

    Things to put in ?
    - join a friendly group of role players
    - stretch your creativity
    - have fun writing stories with other people
    - make Torn more than just a social clicker game
    - bring your Torn character to life

    Just a quickie banner, and yes, a little hard to read the writing over the images -- but hopefully I can improve upon it next go round.
    Posted for 30 days in the newspaper. Hopefully it will draw some new folks in. Thanks for the input everyone!
