((Something to consider!))
« on: June 18, 2015, 02:20:21 pm »
((Yeah I know, an OOC thread in the cantina, but it is solely a thread for roleplayers, an idea I thought you might like just based on what I've observed.. :)

So it seems to be a regular occurrence that your players end up on an expedition or quest of some sort, one which, for many parts could be replicated in game! :)
Back when I ran guilds in Lord of the Rings online and WoW and Ultima Online, I would give clan members tasks to do and ask for "Written reports" to be handed in detailing what had happened during their task, and they players would do this task in game, and take screenshots while performing this task, for example a guardsman was tasked with clearing the undead from the cemetery so the mayors wife could visit her mothers tomb. The guard done screenies of the initial clean up, then done screenshots escorting the mayors wife, guarding her (from the respawns) from.further attacks.

So I was thinking, what if you guys and girls acted these expeditions out in game, took screenshots and then wrote it up on.forums as if in progress?
Just something I was pondering over... :) ))

((This would require organization and such, which is cool... Maybe hunt a specific Wanted player over the course of the time they're Wanted?))

((It'd require more time then I'm willing to invest. Also, my tech skills, and organizational skill, ain't that great.))

((tech skills are no biggy, Steam would be your friend for this, f12 for a screenshot, upload it to steam cloud and paste the link inside [ img ] here  [ / img ] but without the spaces, if you wanted to cut out the UI from screenshots you could use Paint to drop the image and then host the image on an image host site such as imageshack.com or photobucket, there's hundreds of image hosting sites for free :)

As Shaded said, the big obstacle would be organisation, taking the people involved in the RP threads into a match or two to follow the quest in game.

Just a little idea I thought I would share with everyone incase any wanted to follow it up :) ))

((Anyone got recording gear? We could do a RP vid. Private match, get the right maps going. Heck, we could be the next Red vs Blue.))

You wait until you see the next Aerodrome video Gilder is editing! 6 ships flying in formation!!!
Precision is entirely possible :)

The reason I suggested screenshots and "reports" or even diaries, is it is much much easier than recorded stuff, but if you have the patience and dedication for videos, then that would be awesome!

Perfect.  I have an alien costume somewhere from Halloween.

Not sure what that has to do with anything in this thread, but I am happy for you.

It has done it to a lot of threads. Anyways.

((Private matches is a very good idea, to remove the score bar, im sure that spectators can do that. if not some editing can be done but, private matches are very good))

Spectating can be an incredible tool for recording and screenshots, among other things, you can also remove all the UI in spectate :)

With the right organisation a lot could be done to make videos and screenshots for a wide range of things :)

Hardly a roleplay of video series but Satchmo and Myself are planning a radio podcast for the purpose of entertaining people with our stupidity and endless supplies of beers... We also intend to provide teaching tips and suggestions of how to do well in battle but, the booze may change that. *Subjects are subject to change*



Maybe a storybook podcast could be a good way to perform role play.

Every podcast can be a different chapter.


For example, the Aerodrome trailer contained players reading out letters which was a really good listen too.

(I was just thinking about two idotic crews trying to kill each other, and making bad jokes along the way.)

Well, we do that anyways me and Satchmo...

Back on topic, a fraud between two teams would be a cool roleplay.
