[Interest Check] Mix-and-Match

Post by Maxx[2.0]ine » Tue Jun 02, 2020 12:37 am

I had an idea, and I was wondering how many people would be interested in it. I'm doing an interest check first just so I don't waste effort if it turns out that nobody likes it.

First, I'm gonna get the 'plot' idea out of the way, because I haven't got any solid ideas, just concepts. Perhaps something where vampire hunters infiltrate a group of vampires. Or a vampire (or a group of vampires) save humans from other vampires. Or something like that. Basically something with vampires, because that's fun.

So, the main thing I'm unsure if people will like: Mix-And-Match Characters.

'What do I mean by that?' I hear you ask.

Well, I come up with a list of backstories, names, genders, personalities, ages, appearances (well, maybe not all of that, but the bits that matter). Other people can contribute to this list too, because it's a lotta work for one person. And you create your character by choosing aspects from the lists. I personally think this idea could be fun. Or, it could just simply be swapping characters, but I think mixing and matching is more fun.

If you think this idea would be cool, or if you have any suggestions/comments about it, feel free to tell me! ^-^

So basically, the same system as randomised characters, but we can choose from the list? That sounds like quite the roleplaying challenge.
I quite like it!

As someone who hates writing personalities more than anything and always have more backgrounds than I need, I think this would be a great idea!!

Also, I love the idea of vampire hunters infiltrated a group of vampires! :D

Definitely an interesting way to create a character. Quick question though, are the pre-chosen traits going to be in-depth, or vague enough that we would have some creative freedom? Not enough to defeat the point, of course.

I didn't think this would get so much interest! I'm glad it did!

Awesome! I'm glad you like the idea. I'm still unsure how vampire hunters would be able to infiltrate the group, but that's what planning is for, lol. And depending on the tone of the roleplay we want (funny, serious, etc), it could be anything, lol.
