After Vault 77 - Early bird SPECIAL

Post by Patdragon » Fri Nov 11, 2016 9:52 pm

Ok everyone,
I've been enjoying the fallout game with badge and spider and it has given me a bit of inspiration to run a small voting type game as well based on the fallout penny arcade strip. You will be playing this character from vault 77- AKA- Puppet man.

Image

I hope to run a story with voting options that already have predetermined outcome. Each option will be one of five outcomes I've already thought out.

One will be bad-auto fail, one good-auto succeed, one average-no real plot progression or go to second highest vote and two will require a certain level of a skill level to pass, you won't know these until the next vote but it'll give you an idea of my thoughts.

Example ÔÇô A super mutant wearing a baseball cap and holding a large steel bat appears in the distance while you are traversing the wilderness - What do you do?

Your options:
1. Try to sneak away before it sees you.
2. Approach it and engage it in friendly conversation.
3. Attack it with your pistol
4. Stay perfectly still
5. Let the puppet decide what to do.
----------------------------------------------------

What I have planned-
1. Agility 7 ÔÇô You manage to sneak away behind a tree and watch the mutant (if you have less than Agility 7 something bad or average happens)
2. Charisma 6 ÔÇô It turns out his super mutant is a baseball fan and you just happen to know enough about baseball to befriend it. (if you have less than Charisma 6 something bad or average happens)
3. Bad- your out of ammo and you throw your gun at the mutant and he starts to chase you.
4. Good ÔÇô This super mutant didn't see you at all you see him start digging a hole and bury something. He then leaves and you go investigate the hole and dig up x amount of caps, a signed baseball by someone called Babe Ruth and
5. Average ÔÇô The puppet suggests you murder the mutant with your bear hands but your quite sure you can't so that. The mutant gets closer to you. (Second highest vote happens)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So the first thing we have to do is vote on our SPECIAL load out.

For those that don't know SPECIAL each letter means an attribute these are :- S= strength, P=perception, E=endurance, C=charisma, I=intelligence, A=agility, L=luck)

I'll start with the SPECIAL in the recruitment thread and see who's interested(Early bird SPECIAL). Then I will open up the game to all and do some equipment and perks votes in the main thread.

Here's how the voting will work for the SPECIAL - You can vote for 3 different attributes that you want our character to have.
Once all votes are tallied starting with the most popular vote and descending the scores will be assigned as 9,8,8,7,6,6,5 (provisional- will most likely lower) if there is a tie I will choose. I will give each stat a base 2 (or 3) and each vote will add one to the stat.

So first task:
Vote for the SPECIAL
S:
P:
E:
C:
I:
A:
L :

Is this a "vote when you have time?" game where it is okay to miss an update?
If that is the case I'd love to be part of it to come back into the forum.
If not then feel free to ignore this vote:

Vote for the SPECIAL
S:
P: 1 (layf)
E:
C:
I: 1 (layf)
A:
L: 1 (layf)

That is correct. This will be a vote when you have time sort of game, so it's ok to miss updates.

No need to worry about this character being too psychopathic or a crazy doofus. after doing a fair bit more research to remind myself about things it will be several years after what we see in the comics, and other than the puppet aspect things will be a little different.

As for the stats you are correct i did mess up a little there and they are a little too high and I will be reducing them once I have a few more story steps lined out and know the what values the tasks are going to be.

As it seems currently, we most likely won't play a fighter, looking at the STR and END. :D I'd like that. Scientists and CHarmers are cooler anyway.^^

Well, you don't exactly balance the char with that - You just tell pat to choose half the attributes, as he explained. :D

OK going to close the votes on my Saturday evening (Korean time) and as for stats I think i'm going to try this. Starting at a base 2 (maybe 3 if no more voters appear) each vote will add plus one to the stat.

So currently assuming base 2 our stats so far will be
S:3
P:4
E:3
C:5
I:5
A:3
L:6

Yes, if you want to change your votes you can. I thought I added that when posted, but must have edited it out. Still there just over 50 hours to make the change so I thought that would be enough notice.
