Greetings.

Just a new thread for former players or other interested parties to give feedback on the SE: Galaxies roleplay.

For reference, you can find the guidelines here:
http://galaxies.spaceempires.net/guidelines.html

The first two attempts (Aldan and Ashadra) had to be aborted for similar reasons, mostly due to the game stalling and subsequent losing of players.

Anyway, feel free to post away or poke about.

Well I got into the tailend of PBC, and I enjoyed the experience. I think it is a great an different way to enjoy the SE4 game, and more than likely SE5 as well. The PBC experience took away the majority of decision making, and forced you to work with other...and made you feel like you were part of history, or a movie. I'm not sure how the SEG game was run but I'm sure there are many things that are the same.

1. Biggest problem is players...need them...need as many as you can get, and if you can't get more, even better. I would say that you need a constant effort in recruiting new players, and helping them get into the proccess of playing the game.

2. Some means of handling the absence or loss of players, either by RPing them out somehow, or replacing them via RPing. Enforce either restrictions or penalties for absence or loss, that is within control of said players if they come back. RL is important, so that does have to be taken into consideration...it is after all just a game.

3. Keep it interesting. Keep it fresh. Heck even have someone create a 'story' outline, or a list of possible plot devices. Things that can be implemented along the course of the game. Having a goal(s) would be good as well.

Overall I'm looking forward to a SE5 version of PBC, and of a RP oreinted SE5 mod/game that Tesco was originally planning for SE4. Of course I have to wait till SE5 comes out...

Cheers,

Kana

So I guess we can't start any ground work on a SEV PBC game until SEV comes out...How about a discussion on what we would like to have, see, want...etc....?

I also posted this at SEIV PBC forum...but I figure more people check things out around here...Galaxies-PBC...same thing I want to play both, or one, or what ever we can get going...

We do hope to try again in September. I think the main key is to get a stable group of players.

Fyron and I have started to make plans for the next try at Space Empires: Galaxies. We're likely to start again after Deluxe has been released.

Our two main goals is to find a group of steady and reliable players and to enhance the Galaxies mod with more RPing options.

It's sort of on the backburner until SE:IV Deluxe pops out.

If we do start, it will probably be in January for the actual game and between the deluxe patch and then to recruit players and game setup...

So my question is it going to be a Role Playing by Empire, or more like the Play by Committee version of PBC?

I personally like the PBC route, because it is alittle different than the standard PBW game that we all play, because we all have some form of input into a single game and race. RPBE to me is just more PBW with a very strong push towards roleplaying, which most of us try to put into our regular PBW games...

It's roleplaying by empire.

However, another interesting idea could be assigning groups of 3 or 4 players to an empire and doing a PBC thing with 3 or 4 total empires and a few AI players... the main problem is getting enough players.

The goal really was always to have forum based RP using the game as just a backdrop, rather than a web based empire system or those bizarre "freeform" systems.

Smarter than your average Texrak.
