Default RP Successor to the Great War?

With our RP for 5 years drawing to a close, I wonder, what will the future hold for RPs in SoL?

Yea there will probably be a break of a few months to a year and we don't know if we can have a crack at it again. But what are some RP ideas for the future if we have a crack at it again?

I'd like a warcraft fic set in an alternate timeline.

I had this idea to propose/organise a RP set in the Old Draenor time period, using my "spin-off headcanon" as a basis (with kenkus, syrinx, wayangs and stuff).

Though I guess that once our worldbuilding exercise creates something viable, we could try to organise something there.

Can anything follow that? Can the commitment poured into the Great War ever be duplicated, even by those who played a part therein?

We can try to start another epic roleplay, but I doubt that anyone will stick around long enough to see another project of equal scale through to the end.

That said, I think we could have some fun developing the world of Argus in the last few years before Sargeras spoiled the party.

Totally!

Well, not so much genderbending unless we go far back into the past. Because my idea was to change one key moment, in a plausible way, and see how the dice fall from there.

For example:

What if Ner'zul and Arthas merged as planned? Or if Ner'zul rubbed out Arthas? Either way we'd be looking at a more capable and ruthless Lich King.

What if Thrall died instead of Grom against Mannoroth?

What if Orgrim never invaded Lordaeron but kept his southern holdings?

What if Garrosh and Varian became friends in Northrend?

What if Deathwing found a titanic artifact that gave him clarity of mind to resist the OGs and reform the Twilight Cult into a more scheming and intelligent organization devoted to him?

What if Kael'thas has a last minute change of mind and sides against Kil'Jaeden?

What if Arthas had listened to Uther and they made a quarantine of Stratholme?

Stuff like that.

It's WARcraft not PEACEcraft, sorry...

But then again, me and CPH20 like Garrosh.

EDIT: If We ever re-do an RP in the current timeframe, give me control of Garrosh! I will do all in my power to make him what he could be, and I want all the Garrosh haters to be strapped down to their chairs and be forced to watch!

I have recently acquired a copy of Pathfinder's Ultimate Campaign. It's a pretty cool book, explores some stuff you don't usually see in RPG handbooks, like managing a kingdom. Which gives me an idea.

What if we tried to manage a kingdom on rules based on the ones in that book? Each player would take the position of a high official of the country (ruler, high priest, magister, treasurer, marshall, etc.) and with every turn, they'd attempt to rule that country? Which of course would lead to events pertaining the country - treasons, rebellions, heresies, etc.

I'd be interested in joining in too, if you're thinking of a new one.

I'll leave the setting up to others, I can roll with pretty much anything.

Though my preferences lean towards Warcraft. I can work with Warhammer Fantasy and Warhammer 40k too!

Probably weird that I'll first announce it here, but I'll be hosting a new RP after Great War. I'll also be a player in one to be made by Zula.

The new RP with me as GM will be a mixture of a traditional roleplaying game, relying heavily on statistics, levelling up characters, etc, but will be conducted entirely through text. That way, plot progression is entirely at the whim of players, so there's no determined ending to the storyline. Very much like in Dungeons and Dragons and Pathfinder. Players will get to design the new fantasy setting with me, though I maintain the right to a final say on matters because I'll be GM.

I'll probably host it off-site from Scrolls because of Scrolls' centrism on Warcraft. It'll be a serious project, which I may heavily edit into a publishable book once it's done.

I can help too!

Also what did everybody think of the way I disconnected the Great War canon from the Blizzard timeline, as well as Namor's final sacrifise? Need some responses.

Azeroth has been destroyed, and but a few races barely made it through portals into the Emerald Dream. The quest now is to see which race can conquer the most land to build new kingdoms.

We're already a team of 6 for the new Roleplaying Game, and have already almost finished designing the magic system, which I guarantee you is awesome and pretty original - and we've also fleshed out the two main nations and their geography.

People who want to join our massive new adventure, PM me and I'll add you on Skype, where we have a constant group chat and are using Google docs to make everything.

EVERYONE involved in the setting is making it together, so you'll be playing your own setting, with collaborative ideas. That's the fun of collaborative projects, everyone's best ideas come together.
