So who is excited for the RPG to begin? I know I am. I hope to capture a little nostalgia from LTL but at the same time move into a new era of RPG.

Are you planning on playing? Perhaps just watching?

What are you looking forward to the most?

What do you hope the basis of the RPG is?

Do you prefer a particular canon (Film vs Book or Combined) in the game?

Have any dreams for something new?

Share you're thoughts! I'm dying for the RPG to get going.

A long time ago, on a forum far away lived in RPG entitled Live the Legend. It was forum based RPG, all played in text. Players could choose from dinosaurs our the field guides and role play out the life of Dinosaurs on the Isla Sorna, after Ingen left. It was a lot of fun. At one point it even had its own forum linked to JPL. It eventually died off a bit and was later completely removed.

However, a bunch of the former staff and players still have information from the game saved. Life Or Death Sorna is meant to be that RPG again, but here on JPP.

Oh, got it. So I play as a dinosaur, right? I might try this, but I suck writing. Neutral

Thats whats awesome about it. So many of us did sort of suck at writing. Being around and posting with other writers who have experience sort of teaches and inspires you. Everyone understands that. As long as you try your best, you'll never be faulted for not writing like Crichton.

It was a lot of fun. There were eventually different islands added. Some had new dinosaurs or prehistoric mammals. The ocean was full of marine reptiles. The islands Sorna and Nublar were generally canon. People were introduced. Giant plot lines that lead to moments people talked about years later happened like a massive battle between Raptor packs at the worker village. There were legendary characters sometimes like Rancor. It was a really good time.

I'm gonna try to revise the Field Guide we have to be more "original" as well as throw in new species to "spruce" things up. Stay tuned for updates! Smile

Yeah, Snapper was a nasty little male TLW Raptor. Based his name off of the Snap-jaw feature on the old Kenner toy.

Looking over the field guide, the sizes could definitely be toned down to be a bit more realistic. Knock about 4 or 6 ft off of the length of the T. rex alone. I have no idea what I was thinking when I wrote that. Heck, some of the colors are down right WTF. I mean PURPLE on the sail of the Spino? Ugh! Please fix my mistakes, Richard Levine. You're my only hope!

Again, I have revised field guides saved. At least I do believe they were the most updated from our overhaul. At one point you went through and fixed someone of those things CT.

Yeah at one point we talked about canon and about sizes. You revamped some of the profiles sizes. I specifically remember that Velociraptors were too long.

Ohhhh! Okay, that makes much more sense. I thought you were talking about Life or Death. Yeah, I remember we went through the Field Guides and redid the sizes, colors, bunch of stuff. Send that over to Levine. He might find use in the reference.

Working out a species list as we speak! Expect to see new species make their way into it (to spice things up).

I think the pull of this may be too great for me to resist. Somebody halp.

Btw I still have a lot of Field Guide illustrations, documents, maps, and the photos of the environments/habitats saved. I was thinking about deleting it all, but something prevented me from doing so. Nostalgia probably. Heck I still have the entire revamped Sorna Field Guide. Let me know if you need any of it.
