Title: Wagons West!!! (RP)
Post by: Violent Jay117 on April 05, 2011, 01:21:39 AM
[align=center]Wagons West!!!

Welcome, I would like to make an invitation and a proposition to the fair RPers of Red Dead.  Anyone who knows the basics of RPing and is respectful can join in this game type that I have come up with.  It is, a pioneering type of RP.

This RP could be a most exciting event if all who join comply.  What will happen is we will get about 3 wagons to start out with at the begining of the game.  The trek to the West will start in Blackwater.  As the group moves out into the West, they will find allies and enemies alike.  For there will be a couple tribes of Native Americans that will want to ransack the caravan(s).  But, there is a catch as well to what the tribe(s) can do.  They are not allowed near any established settlements.  

Here is the starting point:

When the initial group of pioneers makes it to settlements such as Armadillo or Ridgewood Farms, they will then pick up anyone who wants to join the wagon train, and those who decide to start a new life in whatever settlement they wish can stop there.  But don't think that due to the threat of Natives the people will be unprotected.  If any of the wagoneers wish, they could hire some guards to aid them in their journey.  Each member of the RP starts out with $500 which they can spend which way they like.  

Only 1 requirement so far.  Members must have a swell understanding of how the Red Dead RPs work.

Sign Up Slots:
Well, right now, in order for it to go well, we mostly need some people willing to be Natives who will cooperate with the rules but will still do their job in attacking the wagon trains heading across the land.  

Contact If Interested:
If you are interested in this Roleplay event, please pm me on and lemme know.  For any suggestions, please pm me as well.  I also request there be no flaming of this thread please.  

I have also brought this topic up to two RPing communities.  With a little bit of tweeking it could become perfectlike. Also, if you are wondering when this is to happen, well, I don't know right now.  Need some people first.[/align]

This sounds really good. Wagon Trains usually had some roles within too. You might want to consider incorporating them into the RP to give it a more realistic feel.

1. Wagon Master - He rides in the front wagon. This is the man in charge of everything, he decides where to camp, where to rest, and where to stock up on supplies. Anyone wishing to join the train must talk to this man.

2. Scouts - There was usually two scouts within the group. These would be the only two men on horse back. They usually would scout the perimeter of the caravan. Check the trail ahead, scout for threats on either side, and even fall back occasionally just to insure there is no threats tracking them. Indians, bandits, etc.

Another thing you could do to add dept to the story is create incidents. For example: You could say that wagon #2 lost a wheel, and the caravan would have to circle the wagons for the time being until the wheel is repaired. You could create this incident while in the heart of indian country. Have 1 or 2 riders go to the nearest town for repairs. Use your imagination.

I'd join this. Is it on XBL?

This sounds just about right for me. I'm an experienced roleplayer with a love for wagons. They're an underutilized tool in any MP event, too bad you can't hitch them in single player. I've done something similar to this (driver/scout wagon setup) so if it's cool I'd like to be part of that setup. But either way I'm definitely interested! Add me on XBL. Gamertag is Cycrome.
