If we decided to run an actual RP here on Dreamwidth, using Fate, Dungeon World, or another easy-to-learn / free online RPG system, would anyone be interested in joining up and posting a few times a week?

Here are the game ideas we're toying with:

  • Capsule Contingency (Sci-fi | Powered by Fate): You wake up in a wrecked stasis pod in some kind of alien facility, in a body which may or may not resemble your own and has softly glowing circuitry just beneath the skin. What are you, where are you, and can you escape before that skittering noise catches up to you?

  • Fey Forest (Fantasy | Dungeon World): A small group of travelers takes shelter from the rain, next to an ancient stone monolith. But as the rain begins to clear, and moonlight filters through silhouetted branches, the runes on the monolith glow. And the forest around you looks different ...

Either one can be run as a one-shot just to see how the system (and Dreamwidth play-by-post RP) work out, or can develop into a longer campaign. Anyone who is interested does not need to be familiar with either rules system, or any other RPGs we're GMed, but does need to be able to post at least a few times per week.

Let us know if there's any interest, and if we should develop either idea.

I would be interested. I have never done online RP before, though.

I did play one tabletop RPG for a while, once upon a time. It was very fun, but the set-up was so complex that very little happened in-game before life prohibited further play.

I have played a few quests on forums, which seem somewhat similar to online RPs, but more lurker-friendly.

I can probably work out game mechanics, mostly. Social/ cultural expectations I may be deaf to.


I like the theme of transformation and am curious about the technology, so "Capsule Contingency" definitely sounds like more fun from the description.

On the other hand, "Fey Forest"'s description was more evocative than informative. There's a decent chance I would like it more if I heard more about it.

Well, which sci-fi and fantasy tropes would you be looking to explore?

I think I might like Capsule Contingency slightly better, then.

I'm terrible with commitments right now, so I can't involve myself in more projects. I'm sorry!

This sounds interesting. c:
I like both fantasy and sci-fi tropes. I haven't played sci-fi in ages, so that could be really fun! (But neither is a dealbreaker, haha)

Also, if it's here on DW I bet I can manage to keep a few posts a week. ^^

A fate Sci-fi game sounds fun

I've always wanted to try out the Fate system. I'd be game.
