Actually, L, I've got a rather...unconventional idea regarding the character I want to play. A group of farmers starting an uprising, aka Civilian assets, Would that be possible?

It can work.

 

When I said they are required to be tied into the conflict, it's a conflict for control over Yamato. So it doesn't have to be one of the three pre-made factions.

Great. What is the life of peasants like in this particular instance of Japan? Any cruel lords that would motivate an uprising?

It's not so bad really. When the fighting really heats up though, there'll be some conscription going, but it's not so bad right now. There may be the odd one or two abusive lords though.

 

The easiest reason is to oppose the foreigners, and become a Joui faction. Honestly you need a proper reason behind it.

Well, historically I don't recall peasants and samurai getting along like chums. Hell, that was one of the reasons that ninjutsu sprang up, so I don't really see any gathering of peasants aligning with a faction of primarily samurai.

Joui faction are made up of mostly samurai, but they generally just oppose the foreigner faction. If radical enough, some regular peasants would join, or rather, they usually pick up ronin and so on.

 

Furthermore, Joui is more of a category, rather than one unified group. Each little Joui faction has different aims or visions, or methods for fighting off the foreigners. As such, it is possible for Joui factions to come to blades if they oppose each other enough, so they're more like a collection of sub-factions.

 

If you want to make your own fully independent/4th faction, you're going to need to put motivation and ideals behind it, as well as ambition.

I can do a reset on it.

 

Exception to half the people who joined, everyone was rather into it.

 

I should be sure to cull those who are lagging behind too much this time.

 

It's going to be a full reset, so those who were in it last time, can make a new character if they wish, though it means discarding their character.

 

The following rules must also be followed. These are new, and due to re-examination. I find a lot of players who were active, needed to be given more power.

 

  • Slots for Joui faction leader, Shogun and Ambassador will be re-opened.
  • The RP won't start until the three factions have a leader,
  • It will be filled out by an NPC if requested by majority.
  • The three NPCs I made for each faction will remain the same.
  • You will be required to tie your character into the conflict this time. Whether they seek revenge, carry out their duties, or have ambition. This is to ensure people just don't teeter off due to being mostly ignored for not being relevant.
  • I will NPC players if I think they are slowing the RP down.
  • I am giving Faction Leaders the ability to NPC players that are in their own faction, but ONLY if they are reacting too slowly and not keeping up.
  • I am giving Player Faction Members the ability to control their NPC faction leader. If said faction leader is a Player as well, Player Faction Members may control them with my consultation.
  • To ensure that actions made via controlling other characters does not go against the player's plans, ALL FACTION LEADERS are to report to me their plans, so that in the event that I or their players are required to control them, they can control them accurately.

 

I'll start in 1-2 weeks.

 

Ugh, So all those posts made in the first one will account for nothing?

Just when I finally got a computer to use again....

 

I was hoping for at least a restart where it picks up where we last stopped or whatever happened in the first one will become past events in this reset but a full reset....If its a full reset wouldn't it be like just re-doing/re-posting our original posts? Pending of course we happen upon the same situation or people?

 

If we choose to play the same characters (which I will want to) can we just re-post our original CS's when you remake the thread? (If you remake it or just keep the original) Also, Will my Joui faction and the NPC I made to lead it still exist? Will it still run the same way in which you continue to control him? Just making sure to where I wont have to end up playing him lol.

 

I wont have to worry about the conflict bit since im a Joui and I have a history that basically breeeeds conflict lol.

This is just a thought L, what about, instead of rebooting here on OMF, you bring the RP over to Batoto? Considering the lack of activity here, maybe, just maybe, it might fair a better chance of getting more people to join on batoto?

Perhaps.

 

I wanted to bring some people back to OMF, but the original OMF RPers don't really want to come back over it seems...

Do my ears deceive me, or is there a more active RP forum in existence? 

 

As for bringing OM RPers back...Well, OM is running on goodwill and nostalgia, at the point. There's no real influx of new users.

Yeah, despite things being a little slow over at batoto's RP forum compared to how it usually is, it's still far more active than it is here.
