There's this wonderful thing called compromise. I've seen some brilliant Zerg RPing.
It occurs to me that both of my long term portrait characters are dead. Warfield and Mengsk Senior.
I'm going to go for the Brood Lord, but until then I'll get Abathur...
New storyline, good. Still causes problems. Templar RP on hold for now. Will improve for later use.I like the first one, Images. Second requires further explanation of plot. Third has an interesting setting, but not sufficiently unique plot.
For now, three other ideas. Am attempting RP involving SC universe natives summoned to other world. Three possible premises, two based on works of Stephen R. Donaldson, one original.
Images RP, based on novel Mirror of Her Dreams, author S. R. Donaldson. World of Mordant contains magic users who summon beings using power held in world's curved mirrors.
In book, protagonist Terisa Morgan ordinary girl from "real world," summoned accidentally instead of warrior.
In RP, participants take place of Imagers or warriors summoned through Imagery.
Unbelievers RP, based on series Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever, same author. World called Land by inhabitants threatened by ancient entity "Lord Foul the Despiser." Land inhabited by numerous bizzare creautres, unique essences.
In book, protagonist Thomas Covenant summoned by villain Drool Rockworm as temporary minion. Defects to "good" side, unwillingly. Covenant believes Land dream. Later summoned back to Land repeatedly by lawful mages, "Lords."
In RP, players summoned at behest of Warmark Hile Troy, or take role of Land creatures. Both? Possibility.
The Living RP, original concept. Faction "City of the Living" possesses artifact, captures wandering spirits, places in artificial bodies, resemble Terran skeleton. Many persons from many worlds become Living, are encouraged to forget past lives.
Evil enemy, Kaargan, seeks destruction of City.
Possible ideas put forward. Await feedback.
Additional note on Mordant's Need series: in the first book, the Mirror of Her Dreams, the warrior they were attempting to summon... well, if the book wasn't older than Starcraft I would say it was Jim Raynor, right down to the marine armor and commando rifle. They are literally attempting to summon an alien-fighter from a sci-fi world. Naturally they think his weapons are magic, being of a medieval tech level.
Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
