RP Scenario Idea Thread
#1
Hello fellow RP nerds! Ever since the Wizard Diplomacy round I tried running last Sunday (which, admittedly, ended up being less RP-filled than I'd like), I have been brainstorming ideas for potentially interesting scenarios. I'd like to list some of the ones I had come up with, and I'd like to hear some of yours as well. The ideas could include an admin's help or not, but the ones I have listed here would all require an admin to make it happen.
  • Radio Silence: Standard intrigue/secret round, but the general radio frequency is disabled. Only department specific radio frequencies work. (Might be too strong for changelings?)
  • The B Team: Nanotrasen's finest Basketball team were all horribly injured in an incident involving bananas and sulferic acid. Nanotrasen needs SS13 to put together a Basketball team so they can compete in the next season! (Captain holds a B-ball tournament, probably)
  • Budget Cuts: Unfortunately due to financial issues, Nanotrasen has been forced to cut back on some of the luxury features normally featured on space stations, such as breathable air. The entire station is a vacuum, have fun. (Everyone should spawn on the arrival shuttle with air tanks. I'm pretty sure this might have been done before.)
  • Cult of the Blob: A cult worships a slimy overlord instead of a dark god, and must ensure that their gelatinous master consumes the station. (A small Cult with no/limited spells + one Blob. Likely better suited for Goon 2, but could potentially work if introduced as a late-round antagonist)
  • Grand Theft Infinity: There are 6 magical Infinity Stones, one in each Department Head office. The Spy Thieves are tasked with collecting them. When all 6 are gathered together, the one who possesses them is granted the power of an Omnitraitor OR can request anything from the admins (ideas for other rewards?) Alternatively, there could be no antagonists, and each department could try to steal them from each other.
  • Alien Bounty Hunt: Several exotic alien critters have been released onto the station some harmless, others dangerous, and the Animal Alien Control Unit is offering large rewards for capturing them!

The hope behind this is that if anybody wants to try to run a fun, interesting round other than the standard intrigue/extended that we do, they could take a look at this thread for inspiration.

I have an idea for one: "Adventure station" basically some nerdy telescientist screwed around with the fabric of space and time and somehow ported parts of the adventure zone into the station (maybe just a few enemies, but maybe also whole chunks of the zones)

Hello, just to clarify real quick.

There is already a RP idea thing on the forum. To be fair, I believe only mentors have access to it.

The main reason is because mentors may come up with interesting ideas and wish to discuss them, but don't wish to give away the surprises.

With that in mind, I'm not sure how "okay" a thread like this could be, though I doubt it would hurt.

Also liked the event, being a wizard and finding ways to mess with the people trying to protect me was fun. A shame one jerk had to blow something up and ruin it, but what can ya do.

I didn't know that there was a thread like this for mentors, apologies. Not ruining the surprise is a good reason for making it mentor-only. Though, the ideas I had hoped to collect here would be the types of scenarios where mostly everyone knows what's going on from the beginning.

I suggested Podrick make a thread because they had a buncha neat ideas, and this way other people could also contribute! So yeah, this thread is totally okay, and hopefully opens up a space for people who aren't mentors to share what they think would be fun. Ideally it'd be nice to run an event or something every week or so, maybe at a set time, to keep players engaged.

it's perfectly fine to have this kind of thread. the other forum is for long, extended ideas with several story components that could actually stand to be harmed by spoilers that the creator doesn't want to get out, but if the peeps here don't care about their ideas being spoiled ahead of time then there's really no harm to anyone

I don't know how we'd go about adding it but I feel like having someone (As a traitor) design a maze or puzzle in construction mode to use like jigsaw would be fun and cool. Maybe a special Z-level for making it and a teleporter there for transporting victims to it?

Here's another idea: Extended, but EVERYONE must obey A.I. laws. In addition, several Ion storms will occur throughout the round.

You mean make everyone a borg? Otherwise this wouldn't make much sense.

You're right. What if perhaps this would only apply to non command staff, or it wouldn't apply to people who late join?
