Payday 2 RP Planning & Signup

Post by Adjectutor on Fri Mar 31, 2017 9:41 am

Greetings Hunter Family!

It has appeared that things are getting quiet around here once again, much to my chagrin.  Given the state of things, including the halted pace of the only active RP, I feel determined to remedy at least some of this silence.  I was thinking about how I might bring something unique to the table, and so I bring you a Payday 2 RP.  

To those of you may be unfamiliar with the game, this link will give you some visual stimulation and explanation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXezyKqp8x4

I have always enjoyed text-based communication and writing in particular, as such, I have had a tendency to overcomplicate the plot of my RPs too early, so I instead this is going to be simple in scope and will develop over time if the RP is successful.

This RP is going to be canonical, however it will take place after the events of the games (Payday: The Heist, and Payday 2).  None of those participating, nonetheless, will need to know any of the lore regarding the previous games; it will be kept simple and easy to jump into.

All you need to know right now is this:  You are a member of the notorious Payday gang (Either one of the canonical members, or a personal original character.)  You are going to participate in a number of heists through CRIME.NET, an underground network established by the Payday gang's boss, Bain, which links clients to the Payday heisters.  You're goal is to get rich, cause some damage, and continue to make a name for yourselves. Many details about the lore will be omitted or ignored in favor of moving along to the heists, the goal being to keep players involved and creating our own lore that is more relevant to the RP.


As with the game, there will typically be the option to approach the heists/missions assigned either stealth or loud.  Should you attempt to accomplish the mission stealthed, you will follow stealth guidelines until you are discovered.  If your stealth attempt fails, you will be forced to either retreat or attempt the mission going loud.  Whether you retreat will be determined first by the nature of the mission, and second by the teams vote.  The outcome of all actions will be determined via RNG.  However, you will not be required to guess numbers.  I will RNG behind the scenes when I feel it is necessary and will determine outcomes.  

More details will be included later, but I wish to seek out any interested players before moving forward with this.  While I happily non-Payday players, I do need to stress that I am seeking players who will be actively interested in moving quickly.  That means checking in whenever you think to/can and hopefully more than once a day.  In order to prevent stagnation, I will be incorporating a rule that should a player or two not respond after a day or more, I will move forward with outcomes regardless, controlling the absentee character's actions for the post.  


For now, simply express your interest and start planning out your character's backstory if you intend to use your own.  I will be taking a little time to straighten this out and contact potential players.  I will update with some more details in the very near future.  

Thanks, folks.

For the record, I have not played any of the Payday games. I’ve seen a little bit of gameplay.
Sounds like modern day bank robbery though, with strategy and cooperative elements.

But yeah, I’m in.

I don’t have a whole character at the moment, but as a draft (since you asked):
Parents were first generation Spanish immigrants, grew up in a lower income area. Avoided major trouble due to martial arts pursuits, but did occasionally put his skills to criminal use. Joined the military, got training. Was dishonorably discharged because of his own doing, which pushed him over the edge morally. Got in touch with old criminal contacts to put his military skills to use, and so on.

Seems crazy and violent, but is disciplined enough not to let it get too out of hand. Can pretend to be friendly.
Martial artist, mobile, is good with small arms (quick on the draw, works with free hand). Maybe some stealth elements, people skills, some handy skills. (I can see what other players have and make room for them, so I’m not hogging all the skills.)
Glancing at the Payday classes and skills, seems like he leans into the Fugitive class. (They’ve even got martial arts and one hand wonder.)

I can definitely appreciate the rule of “if you don’t post we’ll move on,” to keep things from stagnating.
Every couple days might be a little hard to commit to though. Though if our posts are expected to be smaller, might be more manageable. I suppose that’s the nature of a fast paced game.
Might focus more on the game part than the roleplay.

Sounds like we've got a second taker now. I'm going to be a little patient and see if we can't shoot for three or four. If you know anyone, feel free to invite. I guess it isn't all that easy to reach out to others on this forum specifically, but I'll keep my hopes up.
