In the first few hours of playing Atlas I realized that this game has massive RP potential.
It's slowly growing, but a handful of us have started the beginnings of constructing an RP Community.
No struct rules; follow the law, play in character, etc. Looking to build a lax progressive environment that everyone can immerse into and experience a dynamic narrative that plays out all on its own.
I guess you'd say it's a light/medium RP, but RP in a sense that you're living in a town, possibly have a home, you make friends, perhaps you have a job or you're an adventurer who goes out to sea looking for spoils to bring back to the community. But to do that you, you had to pay the captain of that ship to take you out, but he had to pay a crew to ensure a safe voyage... you see where I'm going
A few steps for the journey ahead
Acquire a small group of sane folk to construct a foundation for the future townsman/women. They will be known as "The Founders" Founders Phase:
This phase we will do our best to solidify our way of life and to develop a name for our company. If we acquire a full square we will adopt a new name and declare ourselves a sovereign nation.
This is where we try to find the best possible land of our own. Ideally there will always be settlers looking out for new lands.
Once a land is founded our builders will start to construct the towns infrastructure. (One of our founders has come up with "Elshire" for the capitol island)
Law of the land: For example, theft, building without a permit or "no build" zones" may come with a fine.
Those represent some of the plans I've come up with for starting the community.
I'd love to run the town as a democracy and allow the outcome to play dynamically to see what stories unfold.
If you're interested in founding this community please join the (very empty) facebook group Atlas RP and/or the XBOX club Atlas RP (Both names subject to change). Looking for open, creative, flexible thinkers who tend to get along with others and work well in groups for founders, but everyone interested may join the FB group. This is a work in progress and doesn't cost anything to join.
Thank you for suffering through my slightly insane proposal and for anyone who didn't want to read it all, here comes the TL;DR.
TL;DR: Building a light/medium RP community on the Gorgons Gaze server (PVE). This idea is currently in development and we need a few people for the initial set up. Join the FB Group Atlas RP if interested.
