Err, yes, I meant to give Halo five points.

And I dunno, you'd still be ridiculously subjective with PoB. Say I fire from cover in an ambush with my Grenadier Corps, which are armed with Mk. 23 pistols and 6-shot grenade launchers. Assuming you have standard US Army accuracy training (which is to say: Ridiculous. You know that everyone else uses the 7.62, but the US Army uses the 5.56 because it thinks accuracy is more important the face raping?!), you'd probably score all grenades on the platoon. The words I just wrote are ridiculously subjective AND will cause massive arguments, because there will be much debate on whether or not a platoon can be annihilated by another platoon rapid-firing grenades at them, among other things.

Zombies: I reiterate that you'd either devolve to hack and slash or generic zombie plot. Unless you were some... oh...

Say, what if we were each the head of a "zombie squad" and were ordered by the hive mind to consume and/or assimilate the survivors within a building? It'd be more like "Flood" instead of "Zombies", but same principle really.

That's why I like using WoD. : p If you fuck up, odds are you'll die horribly. Combat rarely goes beyond a couple rounds up-close.


Though if you guys rather use free-form, I'll pass on running it. : p

...Can I play a Forsaken one, or maybe a Dreamer? Or is it just "humans & zombies"?
Would be nice to try out, actually. Been too long since I played WoD last time... Even though I have nearly every basic setting book for current ed.

I would prefer mortals only simply because playing a Forsaken, Kindred, or, God-fucking-forbid, a Mage, removes a LOT of the horror due to powers that let you trump lesser-supernaturals.

Though I am totally willing to run a separate Mage game. Mage is teh shit.

Well, Dreamers (aka Changeling) aren't that bad for the power-playing... Except their ability to run away from nearly anywhere.

Or wait...
We could play Hunters!
...Yeah, sorry, getting exited with everything about WoD. Been TOO LONG from the last epic game...
So, mages or mortals... Two of the kind I've never enjoyed that much. Then again, I never got to play mage yet, as our game master usually liked to make people first mortals and somehow I nearly always got turned into a ghoul... I'd think he had some annoying things waiting for me every time!

If it's Zombie Survival, mortal is the only thing that can really hold up that theme I think.

Mage... I'll think of something of that epicocity. :V

Just to let everyone know: I am watching this thread, but I've got things going on in my life right now, so I'm not going to vote or anything. If I see something interesting going on I may join, but don't count on it.

Just letting you guys know, PoB with attempts at using more tabulated game mechanics have been tried before. Mostly they just end up making things more complicated and time consuming, which drags the RP down faster.

I'm considering possibly making a dwarf-centric RP. However I am a busy college student very behind on his studies so I may not have the time.

Also what is this Leech thing that has replaced my avatar. I feel mildly insulted.

Still no internet connection of my own. Hence the reason haven't been around on regular basis. For some reason, the providors don't want to answer my calls. And I can't even hack into other people's wireless 'cause nobody in my apartment has a wireless connection wide enough to reach my block...

It's not that they don't want to answer your calls, its that you'll just be on for a shitload of time. You need to wait at least three hours for most providers. UNLESS you get Qwest (dunno where you live tho), which has a reaction time of about 30 minutes.

Well, there's a rather interesting RP by Ax'smira here: viewtopic.php?f=64&t=15372&p=668876#p668876

In other news, I need a week, but I can write up a start to that campaign of mine in Halo. The asteroid system and background info might need to be tweaked a bit, but we should otherwise be fine.
