Two TSs?



  • What should the plot be for...

    To be honest, in this post, I was actually asking about the TS that would run after "The Tree of Life," assuming that people still want to do two. Avatara pointed out that discussing both in Pippin's topic might create confusion; hence, the creation of this topic.

    First, do people want to try running two TSs?
    Second, if so, what should the plot of the TS that follows "The Tree of Life" be?

    I have only a few random ideas on this one—one of which involves a flood, another involves a takeoff of Terminator, etc. (note that I said they were random ;) ).



  • This topic has 96 views and no replies?



  • I'm not sure how to answer. If both TS's have an interesting enough plot, then I'd be more inspired to work on two at once.



  • terminator?

    Cythera...terminator?

    tilts head and ponders

    interesting...

    elaborate?

    btw
    (this is NOT me being a smartass, I love terminator, I was just wondering how it could be incorporated into a Cythera story XD)



  • See, I would have been a smartass, but now I'm curious.

    I'm with Muse here, I'd love to read the rundown on this particular cross-FF.



  • Well, it has since been pointed out to me that the idea might end up being a parody and something similar has been done before, but here goes.

    The game clearly indicates that the Undine have some sort of affinity with time, although I can't say that I understand its exact nature.
    Using this ability, the Undine send a "terminator" (possibly just an Undine, some sort of super-Undine, or some sort of super golem) back in time to kill Alaric.
    The group must travel back and protect him. (One twist to this would be that the group is being chased, rather than doing the chasing.)

    I can't say that I know how good it would be. It was just a random idea, probably inspired by the fact that I recently rewatched the movies.

    I'm somewhat disappointed. It seems that people are reluctant to contribute their ideas for future TSs :( .



  • I've been wondering what would happen if all the characters (even the enemies) were just normal people with just low-mid skills in fighting.

    I'm taking a history course this semester and I recently began reading about the revolution (all of it). The main meeting plave for the patriots were taverns. There they would discuss politics and plans.
    Maybe we could have something like that situation, where there's an opressive force on the town or city and a resistence starts to form. Making all this in the Cythera world would be very interesting to me.

    oooooh

    interesting :)
    I think that would be fun to do

    Judgment Day was my FAVORITE movie ever when I was younger. As soon as it came out and for quite a few years. I saw the first Terminator like once and haven't bothered to see the 3rd. I heard it's nothing special.

    Actually, we tried a TS that would have involved politics, a war between mages and non-mages, "witch hunts," and several other ideas that I forget. Everyone disappeared and the topic took about a year to grind slowly to an end: the ill-fated Witch Hunt. (To be honest, I consider this to be the worst TS that I have participated in, largely because of its semi-death.)

    I suppose something like it might be worth another try if enough people are interested and participate.

    Well, I think it could be fun, although it does run the risk of becoming just a parody. To be honest, I'd really be happy if more people were proposing ideas.

    (Somewhat off-topic, but I enjoy Terminator 3 more than I do Terminator, although I agree that Terminator 2 was the best.)

    Another random idea involves the actual members finding themselves in the TS-verse among the games characters and those they themselves have created. (It has been pointed out to me that this idea would probably be better off outside the official continuity, however.)

    It looks to me as if not very many people are interested in participating in TSs right, and I fear the number will only drop unless one or more is started soon.



  • I think that we should try two TSs as long as we get enough people back to run two.

    So far, I like the sound of your Terminator-esque idea, and it looks like several others do too. I'm in support of this as the next TS to be run in the normal timeline. And on the matter of the Terminator series, I agree with Selax in that I found T3 significantly more enjoyable than T1. It is an excellent movie, but, yes, Judgement Day is the best of the trilogy.

    this would be interesting
    it would be funny if the players could somehow use their hacking skills to cheat, creating mass confusion to the little cythera people.

    P.S.

    T2 FTW!!! ^_^

  • Hmm, it seems that the only support so far is for the Terminator-style TS (even though it might end up being something of a parody). Personally, I'm fine with just about any plot, so I'm willing to try this one. However, I would like more people to voice their opinions or to agree to join next TS.

    By the way, I'll probably only be able to start a TS early next week or late the week after that, so (unless someone else wants to start this one), it would probably start either in a few days or about a week and a half. Exactly when depends on how many people are interested, how soon they express their interest, and when they would like it to start.

    In addition, should this next TS be started concurrently with Pippin's? Or should it just be started regardless?



  • Sounds like the next TS will be the Terminator-style one, then. Concerning the start time, I think we should begin this one anytime, regardless of the time Pippin's starts, as soon as we feel we have enough people participating.

    Since we don't have a list so far, I'm gonna start one.
    **
    Selax
    TheMuse
    Two Jacks
    Wizard
    CrazyChick (Possibly)
    ** It would be nice if several others such as BreadWorld, Jehezekel, and Rythan joined.

  • Yes, I'm here for definite.



  • I might join in, if I understand it, and aren't overcome with other stuff



  • Updated list:
    **
    Selax
    TheMuse
    Two Jacks
    CrazyChick
    kickme
    Wizard
    **

    On a side note: I love the wide variety of smilies that we have today! ;)

  • Hey Wizard... There's a space between "Two" and "Jacks", you know that right? :p



  • gasp Two Jacks, are you sure you have only one user account? When I was first making that list, I distinctly remembered to check your name to see if it was two words or one. . . oh well, my eyes must have tricked me. I've fixed it in both posts.

    :p That's so funny, because as I was making the list the second time, I was surprised by the number of users who had a one-word name for two words.



  • Hmm, suppose that I might as well go ahead and try starting this TS on Saturday, although I must admit I'd prefer to have more people signed up and voicing their input.



  • My apologies, I had meant to start this Saturday, but I turned out to be busier than I had expected.

    The most probable starting time now is late Tuesday or sometime Wednesday.
