Okay, I’ll explain what the title means.
So I was browsing some forums online, and one of them had this pretty cool idea: an FE game played like a tabletop game on the forums. A world would be created by a GM, and players could create a character that would act as a unit. So kind of like a PME, except that it isn’t a rom hack but a series of posts. Sorry if this explanation is hard to understand.
Basically it’s DnD but as a turn-based strategy game based on FE instead of a turn-based roleplaying game. Of course some things will be changed from FE.
I thought it was a cool concept. I’m not sure if I’ll actually go through with this, but I wanted to post something to maybe gather interest in this idea. What does everyone else think?
Isn’t that just Fire Emblem Online/FEO?
I’ll link that thread here so you can see what I’m talking about - Fire Emblem Online - A Sheets-based FE TTRPG
I hope I’m not coming across as mean I just wanted to point you to something that could be of interest related to this topic; if FEO doesn’t fit what you’re describing, then I’m not sure what that would look like, but I’m sure other members can enlighten the both of us in this thread
Roleplaying forums aren’t that common anymore, but SF has a roleplay section and I’m sure there are some small FE roleplay forum communities somewhere. This is not that.
You’re right. My idea did sound something like that, but it would have been a bit simpler. Though FEO does sound better haha
Hi! FEO maker here! While obviously I’d think FEO would suit your purposes better, I do know that on the Bay12 forums they’ve played an FETTRPG of their own making for a good while, but then again there’s like, everything and then some on the Bay12 forums.
People are right that Forum RP is a lot less common nowadays, although there are several sites where it still happens.
In the field of TTRPGs there are several FE adaptations, both to new systems and to D&D 5e.
