Also, trivia/quiz games are awesome, they just always run when I'm afk.


Nation RP is pretty much a forum version of Civilization. There are two versions I played. One version in which you would take over existing countries as its new leader, and ther other (in my opinion, more fun) where you create your own nation from scratch and start from the tribal stage and expand and improve.

So is it an online board game of sorts? would like to see rulesets if there are any, cause sounds like it could be a long and or complicated time.


What you do, is select a nation to play as, and then guide it to world conquest. It is mostly role play based, with no true set of rules on anything except military actions.

How military works: I will not be recording exact numbers of anything, because the game becomes too cumbersome. This is something I have tried to do before, and it never works when trying to keep track of exact numerals, so don’t ask for it. Instead, I use a general word bank and ratings to determine armies and the outcome of battles. The word bank is like this:

Quantity: None, Miniscule, Small, Average, Big, Massive, All-Consuming
Quality: Peasant, Militia, Draft, Trained, Specialist, Professional, Invincible

So, for example, if we were playing version one, in which players would become the leaders of currently existing countries, Israel would probably start with a “Miniscule Professional Army” military rating, while North Korea would start with a “Massive Militia Army” military rating. Military ratings can be increased through technology gains (mostly improves quality), conquests (which free up resources needed to better train and equip men), diplomacy (trading and the like), and politics (drafts, nationalizing the military industry, etc.).

I participated in a few back in the Know Your Meme Forums, and although long, were some of the most fun I had on that site. Should I decide to start one up, I have a map prepared along with some ground rules set.

Previous Reincarnations were fictional characters. We receive their powers. . .

More to be explained if we do it

I has my own idea.

Change the Sentence - I start it off by saying a sentence, and the next person has to change the sentence by either removing a word, adding a word, or changing a word.

This is a cool idea I got from another forum I was a part of

Hurt and Heal: You set up a list of characters, each of whom have 20 health. During a turn, you take 1 health away from 1 character on the list, and give it to another. If a character ends up with 0 health, they lose. The only other rule: no double posting.

Here's an example involving the 18 Pokemon Starters with random numbers:

Spoiler
Bulbasaur: 12
Charmander: 20
Squirtle: 17
Chickorita: 15
Cyndaquil: 5
Totodile: 2
Treecko: 16
Torchic: 15
Mudkip: 8
Turtwig: 12
Chimchar: 19
Piplup: 10
Snivy: 2
Tepig: 5
Oshawott: 19
Chespin: 6
Fennekin: 19
Froakie: 15


On my turn, I'll say
Hurt: Oshawott
Heal: Mudkip

Then I would place the new numbers in like so:

Spoiler
Bulbasaur: 12
Charmander: 20
Squirtle: 17
Chickorita: 15
Cyndaquil: 5
Totodile: 2
Treecko: 16
Torchic: 15
Mudkip: 9
Turtwig: 12
Chimchar: 19
Piplup: 10
Snivy: 2
Tepig: 5
Oshawott: 18
Chespin: 6
Fennekin: 19
Froakie: 15


Hope you guys like it.

i have two game ideas, one from an old fourm, the game one day dissapearing, and another i made recently, i'll start off with the first one....

1. "Do Something to The Person Above You", basically, at the start of the fourm....

Spoiler
ExamplepersonA:

*does a thing*



ExamplepersonB:

*appears and punches ExamplepersonA in the kidney*



and either:


ExamplepersonC:


*throws ExamplepersonB to the moon*


or:



ExamplepersonA:

*kicks ExamplepersonB in the nuts*




then, there's a game i made up recently, which i'm adapting to a fourm, basically, one person starts a story of retardedness, and people continue the story, only rule: no double posting, i call it...

2. High Stories, as the story we will tell playing the game, is like we're high on a drug or something, without being on drugs..

also...i saw the you find yourself in a hallway roleplay game thing, could we perhaps bring that back??? found it hillarious as i read it...
somethingsomethingsomething, witty remark or some crap, somethingsomething, more witty remark, mmm witty remarks are yummy....something something, OH HEY PICTURE!somethingsomething, witty end....

I think Secret Hitler has some potential to work as a forum game, if done right. It's kind of similar to mafia gameplay-wise though, so that might be something to pay attention to when scheduling a game, if one were to be organized.

Saw one of Totalbiscut's vids for it. Mechanically, it plays just like The Resistance but with a more complex ruleset. I attempted a forum version of Resistance here a while ago, but a combination of busy schedules and a couple players not grasping the rules prevented it from going anywhere. Eventually found a fan made web app and Ive enjoyed realtime games with people while talking over Skype. Not sure SH would translate well into a long term forum game.
