Amstaad general discussion (almost there!)

Amstaad was IS an attempt at a site-written and site-run RPG that started back in the early days of the site.
It is currently being resurrected - inquire within if you want to help or play!

Lack of interest from the lore makers.

There was also talk of completely overhauling the rules again just as we finally had something. Although to be fair, what we had was mostly just me saying: "Okay guys, whatever we have now goes."

Yeah it was just too big of a thing for me to handle alone.

In case I didn't make it obvious I would definitely want to play.

The whole setup seems to be in want of a DM

I would love to Mod it.

If anyone is interested in trying to take over this thing, I will help to the fullest of my abilities but I have never actually Modded a Roleplaying Game before so it is a bit beyond me to handle alone.

Look into the DnD and pathfinder threads in the arcade, those people should know someone with DM experience.

What would it take to get this up and running? Im willing to provide some manpower.

It looks like a lot of the content exists (I haven't gone through much of it yet). Do we need to playtest it? If I modded it could we get one going soon?

Are we missing mods/DMs? Are we missing game designers? Is there still player interest?

I hope Im not offering false hope here but I remember people talking about this around the time when I joined this site and it would be cool if we could get this going.

The long story short:
Klazam/Mhork started this with Klazam being the driving force and putting together the rules and mechanics. I had never even participated in a roleplay such as DnD before but I did roleplay on different sites as a story teller and agreed to help out by designing the backstory of the city and overall plot. We play tested a few times amongst ourselves and thought we were ready but then Klazam backed out for personal reasons and Mhork/myself didn't feel comfortable managing the site alone. Mhork has since become inactive on site (I think?) which just left me and there was no way I was going to proceed forward alone.

Since then though, I have finally done some DnD and even lead as a DM once so I do have a little more experience under my belt but I have also complete forgot what the mechanics of Fate were again and would have to relearn everything. I can still lead as a DM and help progress the story as before by posting missions for people to do, but I don't feel comfortable leading overall and being a decision maker with a system such as Fate.

If you want to help, people like Inspiratieloos have hammered out most of the mechanics just on their own. Maybe you guys can figure out whats needed to progress this thing? I'll gladly hop on skype sometime to go over details with you.

Honestly, I mostly just codified whatever we had at that moment for all the things.

Okay, I'll spend some time reading the rules and setting. I've never done anything with Fate but I do enjoy roleplaying systems in general. Maybe in a week or so we can talk about what's missing and figure out how to get it.

Hey I am actually familiar with RPG shit now, I am probably much more likely to participate / not suck / maybe help with setting up if you need some things?

Thanks both for support. That book too is really helpful, I've been reading through one I found in the Character thread so far but I'll have to skim through that one, too. I'd like to be familiar with FATE before I get too far ahead.

Anyone else who would like to help feel free to post here or PM me, it would also be nice to know how much interest there is in playing too.

No. I've officially dropped it. I keep bringing it back because people will come to me offering help but it doesn't last long.
