Iwakuans In Spaaaaace

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by Pirogeth, Jun 9, 2010.

  1. Well I got bored real quick of things on my computer and with time not allowing for serious thinking for RP posts I was looking around for something else to do in five minutes every once in awhile and I fell back on a game I used to enjoy back in highschool.

    With it still being there now I was wondering if a group of you guys would like to join me on one of the Universes in Ogame (http://www.ogame.org/) Thinking Universe 7 should be good under the name Pseudoping. So let me hear if you are interested or have some random stories about it if you played it before.
     
  2. Doesn't the whole space-kitten.org thing ALREADY mean Iwakuans are in space?

    >_>

    Never played it before though. . . would it be HORRIBLE OF ME to ask for a brief summary of what it is for me and other people that might not admit to having no idea what this is?
     
  3. Alright here goes nothing. Ogame is a text based real time game where you control your own array of planets. You start off with one planet and can have up to 9. Overall your supposed to get three types of resources from your planets which you use to build up defenses and offesnive fleets. The resources are Metal, a basic material used for pretty much anything and usually has the highest price value in items, Crystals, another basic resource which is used more in research I believe, and Deutrium aka Oil. Deutrium is used to fuel ships and keep them in orbit and such.

    As far as it goes when I say real time I mean real time as it takes minutes, hours, even days to make things so it is a low maitenance sort of deal to play ogame. Forming the Iwaku Armada is just a fun idea I thought we could all get in on.
     
  4. A space-based grand strategy game? Why din'tcha tell me?

    I'll probably get in on this if I can maintain interest.

    My fleet will soon be awaiting your orders grand admirable. My ships will gladly commit genocide at your word. Let the heavens burn with the glory of our ultimate triumph.

    Signed into "7. Universe" under the name "Makaan"
     
  6. Name: Luna Cambridge

    Age: 18

    Gender: Female

    Sexuality: Lesbian

    Abnormality: Luna-Ergokinesis-The ability to manipulate lunar energy. This ability includes various skills such as drawing energy from moonlight to physically enhance the user, create lunar constructs, sense the location of objects that are touched by moonlight, and absorption of moonlight for minor-healing.

    However, amateur users can only use their abilities when the moon is out and when they are experiencing moments of heightened emotion, he or she tends to illuminate. Sometimes the light is soft, other times it is intense and blinding. The user may also suffer from depressive episodes if they are deprived of contact with moonlight for too long. Their powers are weakened/cancelled when combating shadow abilities.


    Personality: Due to her blank and quiet nature, Luna is very patient and a surprisingly good listener. She's difficult to anger, as she prefers to make friends rather than enemies. She also packs a heavy punch despite her lithe figure.

    The spotlight is never a place she wishes to put herself in but she will do so if the situation demands it. Once she latches onto a friend or loved one, she becomes extremely protective of them and will stop at nothing to assure their safety. Beneath the indifferent mask is a spark of sass not seen by many. If it wasn't for her awkwardness, she could toss out some witty and clever remarks.

    History: Luna grew up in the slums surrounded by theft, drug addicts, and underground fight clubs. In this "dog eat dog" world, she and her family were the only ones they could rely on. A father stopped being in the picture since he left when the eldest sibling, Jade, was born.

    In order to help their mother with finances, Luna and her siblings resorted to loitering about the wealthier areas of town. It was there that Luna's oldest sister, Jade, pick-pocketed random passerby while her other sister Armani hoaxed people into donating for a struggling foster home. All of the donations went straight to their pockets. Monti earned money in an underground fight club.

    Meanwhile, Luna could not shake off her guilt; her mother had no idea that her children were committing crimes. They had told the frail woman that they were earning pay by mopping the floors of a local diner. Thus, Luna opted for posing as lookout for any law enforcement. Her siblings conceded to her wishes. For extra precaution, Monti taught Luna Muay-Thai and street smarts.

    One day, Luna stayed home with her mother to prepare a small dinner. Around late afternoon, a burglar broke into their home and threatened their lives if they didn't cooperate. As he searched the room for any valuable items, Luna grabbed Monti's wooden bat and struck the burglar in the back of his skull.

    She did not expect the blow to kill him.

    Horrified, her mother calmed her before they cleaned up the mess and hid the body. Luna's siblings returned soon after. Initially, they were confused by Luna's panicking until they were informed about what happened. Luna's family assured her that what she did was not evil nor a crime; she saved their mother and their home. However, Luna found that hard to believe and, to this day, the guilt eats away at her.

    A year later, Monti was killed in the fighting ring, which left the family devastated. It was then that the siblings told their mother the truth and ceased stealing. Their finances worsened without the extra cash, so their mother was forced to get two part-time jobs. On that tragic day, Luna promised herself to redeem her family, get a steady paying career, and approach life with morals. She never wanted to share the same fate as her brother.

  7. Oh god not Ogame!!

    Ive lost too many random weeks to that game >>
     
  8. I joined in Universe 7 under the name Miru.
    I would humbly request a tutorial. ^^;
     
  9. Well a slightly more detailed tutorial huh. Well I can provide one but if you want to take the time they made their own accessible through a cleverly hidden button. The picture below shows you where that button is.

    Otherwise you can listen to me for a paragraph or two. Basically what you want is to improve your Metal Mine, your Crystal Mine, and your Deutrium Mine all of which help produce more of said resources. Now you do have a maximum amount of resources you can have but the limits on that are controlled by your other buildings on the same page, the resources page. There is Metal Storage for more Metal, Crystal Storage for more Crystal, and Deutrium tank for more Oil. Resources are probably the biggest concern within the first week or so that's why I'm still kinda going over it. But once you have that stuff done and you want to move on go look for what you ultimately want and start building the tech tree to get to it. The tech tree button to get something is found after clicking on the desired item. So let's say you want the almighty Deathstar in your arsenal.

    Well to get the Deathstar you need many things, once I click on the tech button it shows me this screen:

    As you can see it is a pretty jumbled mess but there is a tab up top that says technology. It will give you the entire list of things needed from buildings to research. Now you know about that you have a pretty good grasp on what to do to get something in ogame.
     
  10. I'll accept your buddy request and track down Miru (whose now our mascot) then begin the slow climb up the economic ladder and getting a fleet together.
     
  11. (I'm just going to leave clareout for now.)

    Dani:
    I frowned slightly and then smile, "Well let's go to the uh, I honestly don't know where to go."
     
  12. I going to get an invite into the ISAF?
     
  13. For some reason I can't do invites. You have to take action somehow...just not sure. *has not found an invitation button yet*

    [EDIT]Alright found out how you can apply for the alliance. Go into the search menu by clicking the search button at the top, go to the alliances tab and search for the ISAF. Then there should be a button that when hovered over says "Apply for this Alliance." So try that and I know where I can go over applications.
     
  14. I'm surprised Ryker hasn't shown up in here yet.
     
  15. Applied, this alliance will make us strong.
     
  16. I'm in Andromeda already, and part of the Hearts Of Iron alliance under the name "King Gustav V".

    here on SWITZERLAND PRIME we had to fight DEMONIC MECHABEASTS before we even made our first rocket launcher...

    and now of course we have a colony and several plasma cannons.
     
  17. Are the resources and stuff on your homeworld random? I'd like to know if my planet has much of anything to offer anyone. o-O
     
  18. Metal, Crystal, Deuterium. I'm gonna try and get working on a fleet worthy of the emperor's holy inquisition.

    may take a while.
