DragonRoll
« on: August 01, 2015, 04:36:58 pm »


What is it?


DragonRoll is a recreation of the popular internet game, Space Station 13, in early development. Many elements have been changed to be more friendly to newcomers, and to convert it to have a unique Role-playing game feel.

It is centred on a world in turmoil, torn by war and on the brink of mass extinction. The primary goal of each round in the game is to push the world's balance to it's tipping point, and cause an apocalypse for your side, and in the event of a hostile apocalypse, try your hardest to revert it.

It lends a lot of mechanics from Space Station 13, but sprinkles in a heavy dose of new ones, including things like heavy character customization, classes and abilities.

A list of some features include:
* An Extensive crafting system.
* Combat system with many stats to customize your play-style.
* Unique sNPC system, meaning AI players live lives of their own, and the world grows even without you.
* Extensive Character Creation system, allowing for almost limitless combinations.
* A Variety of skills, including fishing, cooking, mining and woodcutting!
* Achievements and Tracked stats, so you can see how other's progress along with you
* Randomly generated worlds, full of dangers to survive from.
* Systems to build your own buildings.

And a lot more!

How does it work?

Players start the game by creating their own character, from a variety of races and classes which offer unique gameplay advantages and disadvantages, as well as a variety of skills and abilities.

After entering a round, the player is free to do as they please, with the ultimate goal of bringing about the apocalypse for their chosen alignment. Actions such as murdering opposite alignment characters, and helping similar aligned characters will cause the world's balance to tip, and when it reaches it's peak, the world will trigger into an apocalypse, which will cause the world to slowly change into the winning alignment.

The apocalypse can be reverted by return the world's balance to 0.

How can I play?

Firstly, download BYOND from here.

After installing it and registering an account, join any server on this page.

Can I Contribute?

Absolutely! Contribution is highly encouraged, as the ideal of DragonRoll is to create a game by players, for players. Almost all contributions (sprites, code, sounds etc) will be accepted, assuming they're thematic and don't violate any real-life laws. Additionally, contributions that are outright crude (bodily functions, etc) or p0rnographic may be rejected if they do not have substance behind them. People of all skill-levels can contribute anything from one sprite, to an entire feature, but it is asked that you do not remove features without replacing them with a new system. Due to the engine (BYOND), it's incredibly easy to contribute things.

Visit this page for information on how to contribute content.

Ok now for my comment. I copied all that above from the post the developer made. He's a cool guy and I am friends with him. I know a bunch of you guys play SS13 so I thought you guys might want to check it out. His servers kinda suck at the moment, a lot of that because him and his server are in Australia so it kinda sucks for us all the way in America.

EDIT: Fixed the links, what I get from lazily porting a post from one forum to the other with small coding differences.

Certainly looks fancy enough. I'll give this a shot.
There is probably no more terrible instance of enlightenment than the one in which you discover your father is a man with human flesh.

There is also a big feature in customization, like there is about 10 races to play as. You can even have your own gender and asks what pronouns you identify as.

My personal favorite gender to play as is Vertibird, with my pronouns being *Angry gurgling*
