[OOC] Campaign Structure

Postby rel715 on Thu Aug 08, 2013 3:07 am

This is a brief explanation of how the Shadowrun campaign will be running. Further explanations will be forthcoming pending player response to this thread.
The players will be broken into small groups of 3 to 4 and sessions will be run for each of the groups sequentially. Games will run by appointment.
Due to this disconnected mode of play each game session will be a self contained mission. Missions will normally be one of the following scenarios:
(1) The party is hired to do something.
(2) The party has decided to do some freelance work.
(3) The party has to respond to some external situation.

Note that option (2) will only happen if the players make it happen.
Some portions of the roleplay notably meetings with Johnsons, most downtime activities and general communication outside of a game session and between groups will take place on the forums.

People can play in the game at one of three possible levels:

Shadowrunner: You are playing a roleplay in the normal sense. You belong to one of the groups outlined above and run with them in each mission. I expect most people to play like this.

Freelancer:
This is for people who do not expect to play regularly. You do not have a fixed group. instead you can perform a run with any group provided all the players of the group agree. Only one freelancer can join a group for any single mission. Freelancers will earn half normal XP for running and NPC’s attempting to act against them between game sessions will suffer a penalty. I don’t want people gaming this; This option is to help players with lives not to facilitate mix and match play.

User: If you have a reason for not playing in the game, even irregularly you take this option. A user is limited to posting to the IC campaign threads and sub-forums. They may have a character but a short bio is also acceptable. They do not get formal XP but may get xp under special circumstances. They cannot normally be killed by NPC action.

It will be possible to move from one level of play to another. However, this process will cost character resources.

At this point I am waiting on you the players.
Everyone has to tell me in person or on this thread what level of play (shadowrunner, freelancer, user) they want for themselves.
You cannot answer for other people. I will not be happy if someone ignores this rule.

If a group is missing 1-2 people. would they be able to ask a shadowrunner or 2 from another group to freelance for them?

Say if Jay and Jyrds were unable to turn up to a session. and would myself and chicken be able to ask 1-2 other people to freelance with us?

No.

If your group is going to be missing people then when it comes time to schedule the session you can look for Freelancers not shadowrunners to fill in for missing members.
If you scheduled a run and less than three of the expected players show up then the game doesn't happen.

So the different shadowrunner groups can never directly interact?

I'll be playing a shadowrunner. I'm waiting for the final character creation rules before I finalize him, but he's an Elven shaman called Galan "Ayreon" Elénaril, originally from Tir Tairngire. I can PM/post a more detailed bio than that, but I'd rather just describe him to you in person than have to write it down :P

Edit: when were you thinking of starting?

Under normal circumstances the players of different groups will not be playing around the same table. However, they will be able to interact through the forums.
Remember that forum rolepay can be either matrix like the shadowlands OR meatspace like meetings with Johnsons.

Start time is at the moment highly dependant on players responding to my questions.

Goblins chew and goblins bite.
Goblins cut and goblins fight.
Stab the dog and cut the horse,
Goblins eat and take by force!

Goblins race and goblins jump.
Goblins slash and goblins bump.
Burn the skin and mash the head,
Goblins here and you be dead!

Chase the baby, catch the pup.
Bonk the head to shut it up.
Bones be cracked, flesh be stewed,
We be goblins! You be food!
