Thumbs down

I have considered running a water war map game. For those of you who don't know what a map game is, I will elaborate.

A map game is, in a nutshell, a game where you send me orders for a man/squad/army via PM, and I move markers around on a map representing you/your squad/your army. Like a video game, but much simpler. Expect for me to have the game ready in June-July, because I am already working on rules for a different map game.

The basic idea of the game is where you command a squad of fellow warriors, as well as yourself and soak other people. You will be able to chose equipment for yourself and your soldiers, and there will be NPCs as well.(controled by me)

Anyway, this is now a suggestions thread. I will consider all suggestions, so don't be shy.

That sounds pretty neat. Would each person have their own army, or be individual members?

I'm intrigued by this idea. I don't know yet if I'd do it, but I await further explanation and rules with interest!

You may have a squad of (currently) 1-6 people.

If you got enough people to join an alliance, yes.

The way things are going, you may have the Sabres.

I'm considering using Brikwars for my basic rules, but nothing is concrete yet.

the idea sounds interesting, it could produce a lot of long RPs.

Yeah, after a huge battle, someone could write a RP about it, and post it on the forums.

Or myself and someone else who knows C++ could write a text-based MMO game. You could still set the rules, Juno. And maybe we could make it so you could control NPCs too. The BBS games of old come to mind...

You can pretty much ignore the times on that, I rarely ever have Xfire on when I play. I should, though.
