Calling out to all the geeks/nerds!

in contest •  last year

If we want to have a beautiful prospering community, full of science, fun, philosophy, art etc. we all need to contribute somehow. There I was, wondering how I could contribute, apart from having my philosophical/sports/fun (so far) blog. When I’ve seen all the applications our programmes created, events our organizers organized, I was so impressed. And I thought to myself “what am I good at, that could bring additional community value?”... I realized that I have a lifetime experience of being geek/nerd… and a GOOD one at that! Might as well use it right?

Few days ago @lukestokes has posted his article, which motivated me even more (I’m not gonna thank you, my studies are even harder for that!:P). By that time my project went from Alpha to a Beta version (orchidaceous way how to call it maybe) and it’s almost ready to be presented. The only thing that is keeping me back at this moment is university. If everything goes according to plan, the completion of this semester will be inevitable in 1-3 weeks. That’s when I´m going to open the registration and present the project with all the necessary data attached.

My reach here is unfortunately rather tenuous and I would be really sad (like REALLY sad) if all the work I´ve put into it ended up completely in vein. That’s why I´m calling out even now!

Another guy who motivated me a lot is @papa-pepper with his Apocalypse game. It brought me back to my DnD (Dungeon and Dragons) days. Living character´s life. Death creeping out on you at every corner. Putting your imagination and survival skill to the test! While his game is so much fun and I´m going to try my luck again in next season, I lacked there the complexity of DnD. The (seemingly) endless possibilities and not being restricted to few options only.

Until the official release I will keep the details to myself. I will try to tease you a bit though with the concept and rewards.

Brief introduction

I came up with Steemit alternative of DnD. Let me introduce to you – Dungeon and Steem (DnS)! In past weeks I´ve been creating detailed game rules. I´ve needed many beta tester that would help me find insufficient or half-baked parts of them. While I still didn’t finish the rules completely, I’ve already solved all the problems that arise with the absence of eye-to-eye interaction, which is a heavy part of the DnD gameplay and which cannot be provided by this platform. The biggest one being the need to reward those, who come up with crucial findings first and of course… the combat. While the system is not perfect by any means, it’s also set up in a way where it rewards not only those that follow basic goals of your character, but also those that prepare subtle plans counting with the characters stats. You will have complete freedom for fulfilling your storytelling desires. Maximum amount of players will be 18. If we reach that amount, Dungeon Mastering for me will basically be a full-time job (semester will be done though, so no problem). The more players, the more stories, the more fun for all of us!

Rewards

There will not only be an in game rewarding. I will of course reward the best players with Steem. I don’t have any, so I decided to share half of all the Steem I´ll gain through the game posts. Also @papa-pepper promised to write a promotional post and its value will be added to the reward poll (thanks again buddy). Detailed explanation will be presented during the opening of the registration.

I only ask one thing. Help me spread the word! We are seeking for all the lovers of storytelling, people that want to be directly engaged in the game or just want to read all the awesome stories (or just those of their friends). I´m calling out to all the geeks/nerds – Come on join me in this project! It will be fun. I don’t know many users, but from the @papa-pepper´s game I like the storytelling of team “The Force” @clayboyn @bilbop. You might be interested guys. Also @unmean-stweets might have come across people that might be interested? Or will?

Steem users please share the word, Re-Steem, tell your friends… help me :). I Will use a tag "dnsa"(DnS season 1) for all the posts concerning the game. Let´s have a GAME!

See you soon!

I like nerd shit. I'm interested. I'm on rocket chat as @aggroed.

·

What is rocket chat? Anyway I’m so happy to hear that!

·

Click the 3 stripes in the top right of your steemit browser page. Halfway down is chat. That's a social interaction application for steemit. It's like a chatroom sorta. You'll see. Sign up there and you can message me, groups of people in channels, and find other steemers.

its is called steem chat. Rocket chat is the framework or software that backs steem chat.

That’s a sure thing! When someone motivates me I always tell him. That way I will maybe not be the only one motivated :).

I had a similar idea.
Playing an RPG on the blockchain would be awesome.

·

Glad you feel the same way! Looking forward to seeing you join the roster.

·

Wow yeah! Bring it on.

I'm already excited!!! I hope to see more details soon!!!

·

As soon as the semester is done for I'll bring them. That's a promise!

I'm excited. When you get your detailed explanation and registration post up. I'll be sure to do my promo post. Hit me up on chat first and we can work on the timing and presentation!

·

Will do soon!

I'm in!

·

Perfect!

Kicking and steeming, @clayboyn drug me here. All I wanted is
to kickback in the cave and play the helecopter flying simulation
with the trippy surround sound and puff on me pipe.
After yesterday being acupunctured by stalactites and today by
@clayboyn dragging me way over here, me robe is a bit tattered.
Suppose you could advance me a few steem to have it repaired?
O K ......... I'll act interested :)

·

:D you never fail me! We were tripping in that cave together remember? U never passed your pipe:/ You'll have to fight for the steem for a new robe.

·
·

Outrageous, we'....er... I'll show 'em ;)

@bilbop and I are both wizards that transcend mortality,
It's never a problem to jump straight into another reality.
@bilbop was lost in a cave the last time I checked though,
Let's see if he's around before I sign us both up ya' know?

·

Unfortunately mighty wizards will have to work individually now. The force will have to compete against each other for once, or unite during your missions? We will see!

·
·

"Individually" what a novel little notion,
I can divide myself with a simple potion.
Existential multi-dimensional beings,
May be more than your used to seeing!

·
·
·

New dimension you will roam,
Prepare to call it your home,
Potions may be used,
Won’t help you from getting bruised!

@fingersik, I've had a very similar idea too ^_^.
I've been working on a game engine of sorts / bot that could eventually be put to similar use - I have another idea for it first which I'm currently working towards (very slowly).

From taking part in @papa-pepper's steem-pocalypse as well, I figured that there were a number of the laborious elements that could be automated and it's possible to add a "provably fair" element to the game as well.

Also, I have a different / less humorous storytelling voice than some of the others that you've mentioned, but I'm working toward honing my creative writing as well - check out my most recent post telling my steem-pocalypse journey.

I haven't used Rocket Chat before either, but I'm happy to discuss some ideas with you and @aggroed - and help out where I can; this initiative is definitely up my street.

·

To be honest I’m really happy that I managed to pull it off now and was the first one to try to execute such an experiment :D. My coding skills are close to non-existent so I´ll be doing this the old-school way! Have no fears this game will mainly be about surviving and making good calls. Being funny might be more enjoyable for the viewers, but what counts is whether you survive or not. I've checked your post and you shouldn't have any problems Feel free to contact me with anything you came up with concerning the passage where you said “ I figured that there were a number of the laborious elements that could be automated and it's possible to add a "provably fair" element to the game as well.“

Upvoted and resteemed, I am definitely in! Let me know if you need anyone to proofread story scenarios.

·

If you’re in I can’t let you see anything :P.

·
·

HAHAHAHA! I hadn't thought of that. Hmmmm...I would still love to help, but I may just have to wait and play.

·
·
·

I still need some testing, but I’ll rather use my friends who are not on Steemit, so you could play ;).

·
·
·
·

Sounds good to me!

Sounds cool. Geek and gamer here, check out my blog posts!

·

Yes seems like you will enjoy it!:)

Looks great but all this is way over my head. I'm a lowly artist.

·

Shame! I hope you’re going to stick around even If you don’t feel like playing. You can still change your mind though ;).

I want in on this!!! bad! Am I too late?

·

Check my profile and read the Rules. Youre now my 2nd backup player:)

·
·

All over it. Perhaps you checked me out as well already? If so, you will that my most recent post from about half hour or an hour ago now is 10000% of specific interest to specifically YOU. I don't want to tell you any more here, it will ruin the surprise :)

And thanks! I won't let you down. I've played D&D and variations of such games since the 1970's. Used to pay "pro" some at conventions too. That said, I'll study your rules, because I haven't rolled a pure D&D character since the original Gary Gygax books. I'm sure things have changed.

will check it out...there are few players that havent submitted their plans yet...register at steemit.chat (if you havent done so yet)...i would need swift answers from you 2morrow...Only Humans struggle to respond, so you can study their story in advance in order to respond quickly:)

This sounds like a great idea! Thanks for the upvote by the way, i appreciate the support! Minnow life! hahaha

Holy crap! This sounds awesome! Where do I sign up?!

·

You missed it. But dont worry another simillar project is brewing! stay tunned

·
·

Dayumn. I didn't check the date. I'll follow you and look out for it, if you're saying something like this is coming again.

Lookin' forward to it!
