    What is your dream text-based serious roleplay server?
    ________________________________________________

    I personally would like to see a serious roleplay server based around the game "Papers, Please!"

    I can imagine it being a really interesting and depressing city roleplay, where there are only two factions: Arstotzkan Border Guards and Civilians. It would be completely based around the lore of the game. It wouldn't be worth making it a full 24/7 server but having it open for a few days for events or a series of events similar to what we do in HL2RP would be pretty chill.

    You would have to apply for any character just like you currently have to do for Soviets in the upcoming WW3RP, and the person reviewing the applications determines your story/fate/etc. If not all characters, you would at least have to apply to the Arstotzkan Border Guards faction, where you can choose to either be an Inspector or Guard. If either positions full, you are denied or put on hold. If you applied for Inspector and the slots are taken/full, you could choose to be denied or be accepted to Guard if your application is good.

    Some kind of NPC system would be cool so if there are no players playing Civilian, there are at least server admins making the NPCs walk towards the border where the Guards can have some RP.

    The reason this server could be city roleplay is; if the map is big, appropriate and fits well with the setting, has at least two-three borders set up, then once the players(Civilians) are allowed to go into the city, they need something to do, like.. To settle into the city, get an apartment, go to some sort of meeting where the city minister meets everyone and welcomes them, etc.

    The server not PVP S2RP? There is also the possibility to make it PVE with the admin-controls-NPC system above.
    "You're an Arstotzkan border guard watching over the border. Your family isn't rich and the setting is gloomy, cold. You're working hard to get even the minimal pay to feed your family, to protect your country from terrorists. You can either perish to hunger or perish because you were protecting Arstotzka, your glory greatest country."

    Set in the destiny universe where guardians are our Gordon Freeman of HL2 and we are all citizens of the tower.

    Seeing how many factions destiny has, it’s be interesting to see Hive and Fallen as playable characters, as well as having human citizens worship Hive etc.

    Just the lore alone is what has kept me playing since D1 Year 1, but if someone made a server for it, it’d really have to be done right.

    Such a thing, as an open ended type server, would need less focus on factions and more open-ended player group competition over resources and governance, territory, politics and so on. Really, I think post apoc rps would only work as closed story based rp campaigns

    actually fuck my last suggestions

    event server scprp

    not some long term server, but one that just runs through different SCP scenarios in event series, that'd be good shit

    it's an incredibly small community, though. but the owner is a great lad and does all the coding. you can't play as class-d's straight off, (only as security, research or medical.) and it isn't something like site-19. some other site disguised as a geological survey site, used to transport SCP's between sites

    already also had supernatural occurrences, murder in the cornfield, dead officers nearby. it's great really (shameless shill but it's genuinely fantastic)
