Plagues of egypt mux

Hi,

Today I'm happy to announce POE is almost in open beta and we will soon be inviting players to try and survive the first 'disaster'.

The story is this: You've been abducted by aliens - who, for their own amusement, gather humans and place them in various apocalyptic environments and watch. Success means you get to try and survive another apocalyptic disaster. Failure means death.


The way the game works will be like this:

It's a RP enforced mux.

Characters are preapproved for the 'disaster' round. Once the character dies, the player of said character does not get another until the next disaster round. Disaster rounds last until either every character is dead, the disaster has been resolved, or all characters have managed an escape. The time for a round can vary from a day to months.

When we're ready to accept characters for the first open round we'll make a post. We hope this will be within the next few months. In the meantime-- if you have any questions, ask away.

Sounds interesting. Are you using a particular RPG? Consent/non-consent? Multiplaying allowed? Planning to advertise on WORA?

It's going to be heavily modified diku. Non-consent. Multiplaying isn't going to be allowed, the reason for this is we want death/permanent disfigurement to feel scary on an OOC level.

Characters that have survived more disasters will have more fans/sponsorships. These are a sort of currency that can be spent on IC upgrades, even alien tech that will offer almost super natural powers.

It's going to be advertised on WORA once the game is out of open beta. It's still littered in bugs and isn't going to perform well. We're hoping to iron that out during the beta and I don't want people to be driven away from the game because of development bugs.

While disaster rounds are ongoing, new characters will be able to chill the alien jail while they await the next one. The alien jail will be a metaplot once the game is properly open.

So, sort of like Armageddon with a restart cycle? I'm curious why you're using diku but calling it a mux too.
