    Neptune's pride: The RPS community epic

    I've just read the rps diary of Neptune's pride that was posted earlier today. I am most intrigued. The game sounds brilliant, and I think the best way to enjoy it would be a game comprising solely of RPSers who would potentially be willing to write up their turns, ambitions, emotions, etc to create a similarly (If inevitably much more poorly written) epic compilation. Anyone that wants to join would have to be of a similar skill level to the others, ie completely new to it. If I can't find enough people that want to write up their turns then I guess I'd be willing to just play a normal game regardless, though I do think we could make something interesting if we we all managed to commit. Who knows, it could even make for a good addition to the Sunday papers of the not too distant future.

    Hi there, posted on the actual site too but I'd be up for this! I'v been running a small gaming website for the last 6 months and I'm more than happy to post peoples turns there if you want. I have never played the game either. The site is mmgaming.net if interested, and like you said if nobody wants to write up their turns I'd still be up for a game!

    Is the game really as monstrous as I think? That an attack started as you go to bed could savage your empire before you get up in the morning?

    There's... an element of that. But I'm sure such distinguished chums as we would never resort to such nefarious tactics as deliberately launching invasions at times when we know our opponents are other wise engaged....

    kirbyxox, I have to ask: what style do you plan on writing in? It must be pretty audacious if you have to check beforehand. I'm sure it'll probably be fine, I'm just curious.

    Well I may do it in the style of being the character in the game and lead out to describing the game but I don't know much about it so i'm not sure if i'll be able to do this.

    That should be possible. Yes, why not? It could be interesting, so long as we don't all do it. Would you be sending messages while role playing as well? That could be quite funny, an account of you dealing with people that aren't role playing and vise versa.

    I have still some "credits" lying around so if you tell me what you want I can set up a few private games for you guys.

    edit:
    I have enough credits to set up 7 games that would be free for people to join.
    I will not join in playing because this game makes me a nervous wreck

    I'd like to join in.
    The whole writing of the story reminds me of Boatmurdered

    It looks like we're on. Someone with a website to post it to, someone with enough credits to make a private game - and enough interested people to play with! Pretty soon we're going to have to start talking about numbers, game set up and how we're going to organise the writing.

    May I suggest that if this gets big enough that we start up a subreddit for it?

    So, should we start talking about getting a game set up? For writing, i figure we all just take notes along the way, then write a finished story up when we're done playing.

    I was wondering if maybe actually writing it while things are happening might be a better idea. I know that's not how they did it, but it might make for more interesting reading - and it circumvents the issue of forgetting exactly what was happening and what we felt like at the time. I think if we write it as we go, maybe an entry every couple of days when something important happens, we'll get a more compelling final piece. But hey, obviously I'll go with the majority. What do the rest of us think?

    What about player numbers? Does 8 sound about right? And glad to have you on board, Shepherd.

    It might, actually. When i consider it, that seems like a good idea. Obviously i defer to the majority vote as well, but i like the idea

    8 seems like a good number.
