If this is the Captain Gamer Forums, why don't we have a Captain Gamer Roleplay? XD I had three ideas how that could work with. Just ideas. Havnt played enough forum RP's to really get into which rules would suit which.

First one, just have a plain Captain Gamer Round Robin Fanfic. Preferably a humorous one...

Second one, a forum RP where everyone has the same powers as Gamer.

Last one, a forum RP that just takes place in the Captain Gamer universe, so people could be a game charactor, a Gamer fanboy, an IDR scientist, ect.

Those who've played more RP's than me, which kind to which rules would be the best? Pitch in a few ideas of your own, if you want...<.<

The last one, although it sounds a good idea, would need something to bring all those together, something overarching and big, and some of those characters would have smaller scope for events than others. The second one, could be interesting, although the powers are kinda vaguely defined, and things could get a little godmodey. Course, if we all picked videogame characters and Cap picked Cap...XD
Cap would not need to be a truly main character with that, considering it all sort of an offshoot of the main events, a bunch of realized characters dealing with issues elsewhere, him dropping in now and then...*shrug*

The first suggestion, its funny, but I had a similar idea, although thats less in the terms of RP and more in the sense of a collaborative wiki-novel sort of thing. Definately could be fun too, although I can't help but wonder if that should be seperate to the RP suggestion.

Hmm, yeah, there is the problem of too wide a scope. In order for an RP to work characters need to interact with each other, almost constantly. Razz Not necessarily everyone with everyone, but at the very least groups of two to three people interacting on a constant basis. Which is a problem all RPs face, but especially ones with as wide a scope as a CG RP.

Of course, having multiple characters does help pick up the slack.

And, of course, there's the issue of nobody wants to be an IDR worker. Everyone want's to be a Game character, except for Captain Gamer himself, who gets to be Captain Gamer. But a round robin might work...

Well, everyone being a game character could work out ok, just gotta have at least an equal amount of villains to match and something strong that'd be almost a match for everyone.

I guess we could start brainstorming ways to narrow down the scope, giving a specific storyline and flow that would keep things together somewhat.
Perhaps something along the lines of an digital realm being made, but not by IDR, and loads of characters being drawn there, or just going there to check it out/be heroes/accident/eat. Or some sort of disaster, city getting shut down/enclosed....
Hopefully the general gist of the suggestion is clear. xP

Oh, and if people were using characters, I guess certain restrictions would have to be worked out. For instance, following Caps examples in the story, although you're not literally restricted to what the characters do, such as being able to eat a snowball to get a power, not just an enemy, but still in general sticking closely to displayed powers. And of course, in the case of, say, Samus or Link, it'd be before she gets ALL her stuff/restricted to one game and so forth. Just to keep things reasonable. =3

Since those suggestions at the start weren't a product of genuine interest, I can hardly call them a saving grace.


It's not spam. It's random things. I was making a point. >.> Also, those were of interest. I would like to see a Star Wars Warcraft/Starcraft/Superheros RP. I would also like an Insane Asylum RP.

What about a multiple Gamers RP? Like there's Captain Gamer as himself, but then we other people could be Non-canon Gamers, like there could be Commadore Gamer, and a Cadet Gamer or...
Of course, if Cap vetos this, forget it. (I don't expect people will like the idea anyway.)

I believe that the one flaw in a Captain Gamer roleplay is that Digital Defender is only 5.2 episodes in, so the Gamerverse (patent pending) is not so fully fleshed out. I blame the author.

If somebody could piece something together from info released in OOC, that would be something. I think I would end up being tyrannical if I made it myself. If another person made it, all I would be inclined to do is give a nudge whenever the Captain Gamer canon is compromised.

Also, the idea of additional "C____ Gamer" characters is actually encouraged! Though there are two yet-to-be-heard ones that will be canon in the near future, and therefore unadvisable for an OC. Koji, I've reversed my earlier ruling on giving their names away. Feel free to add them to the rampant speculation. I was just being silly... new forum, and all.

Perhaps something with the choice of either gamer characters or game characters, so its a bit of a mix. That could encourage some teamwork, just like in DD. Whatever we pick, we should probably just pick it and go for it. I'm eager to start considering character details and considering overarching plot. X3

*wanders off to reread OOC a couple times*

Yeah, I like that idea, Konoko, lets just hope not everyone decides to become a Gamer. Razz

So, how about I throw out a more solid RP pitch? I'm not quite sure about the story. Either we can take off of DD, where video game villains are threatening the world, or we can combine this with the "other rp" and make a sort of great race set up to see "who's the ultimate Game Master" or something. Or have that be set up by the villains. Every gamer race to get itemX for the future of the planet! Or something XD

---A DM like our current RP, but maybe more stat-based thing with that DnD dice roller thing. If we cant find that forum roller, we might have to go by the honor of the Gamer, right? Razz
---If you're a C. Gamer, you start with limited amounts of powers, let's say three or so.
---If you're a Game Charactor, you're recently realized, but for the most part you have all your powers. Weapons do not count as powers, and you get a limited amount of those. So Megaman does not get EVERY boss power, and Duke Nukem does not get EVERY gun. But they may have a select few. Probably the same with Gamer, three or so weapons.
