Eh, Wetpaint doesn't work on Chrome, and Explorer sucks, so I'll just post this game here. This is for when Witticus' thread is "done" for the day.

Welcome! Let's run through the plot!

_______________________

It's the year 2XXX, and WWIII left earthlings no choice but to travel to a distant planet (New Haven) that seems to be the home for other civilizations that have done the same thing. After maybe 500 years of peace, one world leader has gained some allies and threatens world domination. You are members of an elite team set out to stop this before it starts. But is it too late... and what is behind these happenings?

_______________________

Rules:

- First and formost, while you can join in at any time in the "game," you will need to set up your character first. This includes picking a species, class, setting up a name, and setting up a description of looks. Think over this carefully, as you will not be able to change this unless told to for any reason.
- Outside of battles, things will work out in a choice manner. You will be presented situations and options. The team will vote on the best action, and will then proceed to the next one until battles.
- In battles, it will play out in a fashion similar to turn-based RPG video games. I will present a turn order and people will choose one attack at a time. Only one attack allowed per turn. You will use one of the special attacks you have, or a normal attack. You will not be able to switch weapons or armor in battle. Between battles, there is no healing, but after missions, everything is restored. If someone dies, they will have to be revived, or else they will be unable to do anything for the rest of the mission (unnamed forces revive them after every mission).
- Stats:
- Attack: How much damage you do. This is increased with weapons.
- Health: How much health you have. This will increase with different armor.
- Speed: The more speed you have, the sooner you will be able to attack in battle. This will increase with different armor.
- Mental Strength: This determines how many special attacks you can perform. This will increase with every level.
- With every increased level, which happens once every mission, your stats will increase by five each. You will have to keep track of this yourself.

__________________

Races:

- Races have different stats and other perks that can help or bite you in the ass as you go along. It's best to choose wisely. These are the starting stats for each:

Human

These are inhabitants of New Haven that came from a planet called Earth, a war-torn planet that was destroyed in a nuclear war. They seem to be the most dominant species in the continent of New Chile. They are round-out, which means not especially strong with anything, but not especially weak in anything, either.

Stats Level 1:

- Health - 120
- Attack - 20
- Mental Strength - 120
- Speed - 30

Android

Built for security on Earth, these sentient machines eventually became self-aware. But rather than the universe-ending rebellion many Earthlings predicted, they ended up loving all life, and serving to protect all life, even if it means exterminating those who threaten it. These guys have stellar health and attack, but they are'nt fast, and they are lacking in Mental Strength.

Stats Level 1:

- Health - 190
- Attack - 45
- Mental Strength - 50
- Speed - 15

Cats

At one time domestic pets for humans on Earth, science has made these mammals much more intelligent. They have a vital role in the land of Felinia (they named it themselves), and can become quite convincing politicians. They are fast and have plenty of health. Their attack is above average, but they are lacking in something humans are capable of: mental strength. Plus, they have a fear of water.

Stats Level 1:

- Health - 160
- Attack - 30
- Mental Strength - 70
- Speed - 50

Moogle (what? I couldn't make an RPG without something from Final Fantasy!)

From an unknown planet, these small bat-like creatures have a long, legendary bloodline that traces all the way to an ancient land called "Avilace," which is what they named their new country. They are powerful with magic, and are pretty fast, but are lacking in attack, and health is average.

Stats Level 1:

- Health - 120
- Attack - 10
- Mental Strength - 190
- Speed - 50

Pixie

From a planet yet to be discovered, these tiny woodland creatures are all around the world of New Haven. They hide in all sorts of little areas. What's special about them is that they do not have health. Rather, their mental strength is so strong, that they rely solely on it for survival. But once they run out, they wither and die. They are also fast, but cannot carry weapons due to their size.

Stats Level 1:

- Health - N/A
- Attack - 20
- Mental Strength - 350
- Speed - 45

Elves

Small woodfolk who use nature at their disposal, and can make use of any plant to make herbs and potions. They come from a planet known as Econia. They are fast, and they can call upon animals for aid. However, they lack in mental strength and are relatively weak.

Stats Level 1:

- Health - 140
- Attack - 15
- Mental Strength - 90
- Speed - 60

Orc

From a planet called Zebosh, these brutes come from a history of war and violence. They are war-hardened barbarians, and aren't usually too smart, thus why the country of Veshob is on par of an Earthling third-world country. They are very strong, and have plenty of health. Just don't rely on them moving fast or using magic.

Stats Level 1:

- Health - 160
- Attack - 50
- Mental Strength - 50
- Speed - 20

    I'm not sure if popular is a good word for it. I know at least 5 people read my stuff. Most of the responses in both those threads are by me. I guess the key is to make something simple and treat it with care.

    As I found out that giving people too much control of stories is a surefire way to fail. Best thing to do is spark the creativity and see where it goes from there.

    Yeah, I forgot Survivalists have no other skills. Also, it's best to keep the levels up so I know what kind of enemies to throw at you and such.
