I've got a whole bunch of free time on my hands and what can that mean other than a forum rpg game! This time we'll be using the Fate system, one I've been itching to try out for a while now. Around 3-5 players is the recommended amount, so... we probably shouldn't go above or below that, I'm guessing. Fair warning that, in this post, I just pull a lot of stuff right out of the core book.


So! Establishing a Fate setting is usually taken on by a group over a single session, the GM working with the players to build a setting that everyone is mutually interested in. Since a lot of people in this community are in wildly different timezones, I decided to make a nice compromise by mushing together the game creation and character creation phases of the game process.

Alright, on to the details of this campaign.

The Name: Motörpocalypse Against Cyberhell

The Setting: Cyberpunk Dystopia Disrupted by Heavy Metal Apocalypse, meaning a combination of fantasy and scifi elements

The Scale: The region of the world caught between the corporate-state and the encroaching Motörpocalypse.

Current Issue: The Silicon Death, a plague that kills cyborgs.

Impending Issues: The Approaching Doom, spearheaded by the Hatred Express... and The Hostile Takeover, an attempt by executives to retake territory.

For the people interested in playing, just post your character idea details and I'll let ya know when I need you to do something else.

While this isn't the end of character creation, for the time being this is all you need to do. First come first serve.

You guys need to shorten your posts down to just a few words and a picture. Like so:

I'm a science nerd and I play around with stuff like this:

Actually, if you can do it with just pictures that's even better.

I'm a lab tech at a university - basically I'm the goon who does all the prep for lab classes behind the scenes.  I enjoyed it when I started as it was a welcome change from the hellscape that is a research career, but we went through a restructure recently to increase "operational excellence", which means they fired pretty much everyone who had been there more than ten years and hired less people at lower pay so now I'm one of two original members of my team and I have to train a bunch of new people how to do more work with less people, which is going to suck.

On the bright side it's got me more involved with my union, and from what the Murdoch media keeps telling us faceless union thugs secretly run everything so that'll be a nice perk.

I'm a college professor in renewable energy engineering at a small-ish undergraduate university campus. I teach 6 classes a year on miscellaneous topics: solar power, engineering design, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics. I also do research on some very application oriented solar power topics, including an Android app I made to let you measure the times of day that a solar installation would be shaded, and what your lost energy would be due to shading. Commercial standalone products cost over $2000, so this is my small way of sticking it to the man and getting the knowledge into the hands of anybody with a phone.

This is basically the dream job I went to grad school for in the first place, so it's a pretty sweet deal. I get to focus on teaching, do research that I'm interested in without the pressures of making the university money with big time grants and supporting grad students, and (most importantly) hopefully make a difference to my students.

i work in a supermarket of just under 100 people. i do the payroll and cash management and am also in charge of price ticketing for items.

I mow yards. We do other stuff like repair and theoretically build $10,000-$15,000 koi ponds with waterfalls, though the dude I work for is old and doesn't really bid new clients so I doubt I'll ever actually get to build one. Still I've learned some basic plumbing shit and in a lot of ways this job has improved the way I think about work, but the guy I work for can make the whole thing pretty demeaning and more importantly I'm v bored.

Meanwhile I am starting a business!  I worked for this one media company in my town until I didn't about five years ago, and it left me feeling pretty unwanted and out of place, and I've been doing work I don't identify with ever since. The truth is I've always wanted to MAKE MOVIES but I get pretty depressed and really distracted plus I started smoking a lot of weed, but evidence aside, down to my core I really want to MAKE MOVIES. So let me just leap forward - book trailers.
There are a lot of self-published authors out there looking for new ways to stand out, and I think I can help them. I've got a couple of clients and have done some networking with local authors' guilds and conventions. Ideally there should be a considerable variety of work and opportunities to experiment and learn new things.
I've got a lot to learn and maybe even a little worth recalling. I've got a camera and a decent editing rig, so I'm re-learning my old Adobe CS faves and learning Blender to step up my mograph game. Marketing is scary which is ironic considering that's what I'm offering, but there's a lot of doubt about presenting myself. If I can get past the imaginary hurdles and then the real ones, I could really get into this work and maybe open up some new pathways.
