Ok, so after talking with Warcry about this idea I have, the consensus is to see how many would actually play. So give me a few minutes to pitch this idea to you RPGers and please vote a solid yes or no. ;)

I envision an Animated RPG where archivers can play as either a Transformer or a human character. Given the large amount of characters both in the Animated show, and now in the IDW comics as well, there should be plenty of choices for characters to play as.

As anyone who follows the Animated show knows, the human characters can be every bit as powerful as the bots can. We could easily have a large game going with both bots and heros/villains from the TFA continuity. I think there would be a great deal of story arcs that a good group of people could role play through with just the aspect of the bots and humans interacting and helping or hindering each other.

Of course if enough people got interested and we got a good game going we could always bring other characters into the TFA continuity and "animate" them so to speak. Plus with the new season coming up, and more comics on the horizon (last I heard) there will plenty of potential for more characters to role play.

I'm hoping I'm not the only one that finds the Animated continuity to have more character and solid story than anything since Beast Wars. So lets hear from all you guys and see if we can get enough people interested to make this happen. :clap:

YES! More RPG is fun. I would looove to play the likes of Blitzwing, Bumblebee or Prowl. :)

Dibs on Blitzwing and Waspinator, BTW

Well, this is very underwhelming so far.... At least there are 2 of us :lol:

I have two reasons for being leery about the idea:

- I haven't been following the series in the slightest. Not a very good reason, admittedly, but it also doesn't give me a reason to vote yea.
- As sad as it is, all of our side RPGs tend to have a lot of energy for about two months and then rapidly burn out. I'll put full support behind it if there's substantial interest, but there was also a time when people expressed substantial interest in a BW game...

So like Warcry said, if the interest is there, we'll make it happen. I'm open to being proven wrong.

My knowledge of Animated begins and ends at owning and rather liking the Jazz toy (dibs, BTW ;) ) so like Flec I'm not the best-qualified to comment on this. I'd be interested in playing, though.

Like Flec says, though, our side-games haven't had a very healthy life expectancy in the past - Beast Wars lasted under a year, the Movie game lasted about six months and we never even got the Armadaverse game we were planning off the ground because of lack of interest. If we're going to do this, I'd like to hear some ideas on how to keep it from suffering the fate of its' predecessors. Does anyone have any thoughts on that?

The more role playing the better in my opinion heck Im just trying to get started lol. If we can call dibs I take Ironhide or Grimlock hehe .

But Seriously more role playing means more fun and more interactivity Im all for it.

There can be only one! (http://popjunkie.files.wordpress.com/2006/09/adrianpaul.jpeg)

But seriously. I think that it's just too hard two keep up with multiple RPGs for a lot of people. It's already hard for some people to keep up with one, myself included. It'll just be too hard for a lot of people to go at both.

I am not too familiar with the series but I would be able to take on a character or two.

Been wanting to get into the RP, but I do so hate starting in the middle of things. This seems like a good opportunity. I'll comment to three characters at present, one of whom will be a human. :up:

EDIT: Since others are already queuing up their characters, I'll go ahead an call Oil Slick and Arcee for my Transformers. If we're allowed, I'd like to make my own human character; otherwise, I call Meltdown/Prometheus Black .

After losing interest in the G1 RPG, I've been wanting to come back and help in some form, so I'm in.

Also, dibs. (http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Lugnut)

No - not yet.

Got a lot on in the G1 RPG and, honestly, I don't think I've seen enough of the Animated yet to get a complete handle on all the 'bots. Okay, so I could do BA, I suppose... she's interesting in how she deals with the mechs in an interesting way...

I'd be willing to try it out, so long as Sari isn't included.

Dibs on Soundwave and Blackout btw

More interest...maybe this can happen? And dibs on Starscream and Swindle...since everyone else is calling dibs :p

Is there anything else those of us who are interested can be doing to get this started?

There is one thing: find more people who are interested, drag their butts here and make 'em speak up.

Yeah it is mostly going to be up to Warcry, Reflector, and the rest of the RPG staff. Not up to me, if it was I'd say go for it. I think it would work out better if we organized it to begin after Season 3 finishes up anyway, as it would make for a much more logical starting point, seeing how it is the last season.

I think we could get enough people in here to play, and I'd be more than willing to help run the game and make myself available as a resource to the RPG staff. I think we may need to take this topic to "General Discussion" to get a better response though in actuality.

Yep, methinks so as well. Wait until season 3 wraps up... then the sequel begins. Still, can't wait to play as more crazy Decepticons...

I would be interested for sure. I think it would be neat to pick up where the series left off!?!

I'm still interested of course, and it would be logical to continue the story after Season 3 has ended now. However it seems that we would need RPG staff who were interested as well, and that is where the problem comes in I think. It doesn't really look like there is any interest from any of the RPG staff to run a new game, and it would take some people who are quite knowledgeable of the Animated continuity to make this happen.

But..I am drawing my own conclusions here, lets here from the RPG staff for a definitive answer?

Not having seen the entirety of TF:A, that I couldn't really play. I've seen Season 1 online, but have no hope of picking up a plotline generated out of Season 3.

Afraid I'd have to pass...

Well if we do get this going I would like to play Thundercracker.
And maybe Wheeljack (even though we never even heard his voice in the show...)

Sure, I can read up on things, but I'd prefer to see the stories for myself in order to spot those little openings allowing for possible future development.

My new pc will process, I'm informed, like manure from a digging implement, which may well enable me to seek on-line viewing opportunities currently out of my reach. If I can do that, I may (like Arnie) be back... :p

It's a quaint idea, but like expressed by so many others already, our side-rps never seem to last very long. I admit I have some interest in the series, but it lends more towards private rps that I do with some of my close friends, which I don't think would work out large scale.

I'd personally rather see some of our other side rps resurrected (I call Armada Megs if it happens ;) ). We had interesting plots for those that just seemed to drop off right in the middle, which I'd love to see played out. Unfortunately, it probably wouldn't last much longer after that, given the past patterns. One can always hope, though.

I for one would like to see the Beast Wars RPG revived. Never played it, but from what I've seen in the archives, it looks like fun.

Yeah Beast Wars would be very thrilling to me as well, I'd get to play my favorite character Hellscream. But alas its not happening, and it looks like 19 people are willing to play an Animated RPG, but no one is willing to help organize and run it other than myself, and frankly I don't have that much time to kill anymore. I'd still love to play in an Animated RPG though, but it doesn't look like its going to happen.
