Description Edit | History

From the Game's Introduction.


People have always looked to the stars for guidance. Astrology is one of the oldest methods of fortune telling, and the stars were named to help sailors and travelers easily find their way at night. The signs are linked to birth, forever marking those born under them with certain aspects and emotions. The stars of the horoscope provide many ways of helping mankind.

But what of those times when mankind, or any creature, needs more than simple guidance? What of those times when the world is threatened? How will the stars help when the very world is in danger?

The stars provide...

There always seems to be a leader when the world needs it most. Generals that lead wars to defeat a great enemy, men and women who fight injustice with the simple means of passive resistance, and everyday people who deal with extraordinary circumstance regardless of whether they may live or die. These people are great in their own ways, but sometimes the world needs a little help from the stars themselves. That's when a Horoscope appears.

This person, be they man or woman, human or alien, appears at a time when the world is in crisis. They can tap into the very stars themselves, using the elements and aspects of the zodiac to help avert disaster. However, they have a limited lifespan. With each zodiac called upon, the Horoscope spirit leaves their body. In essence, they may use their powers twelve times before they pass into nothingness. A Horoscope is a powerful being, but they of limited life and they know this fact. Yet even with this knowledge, they continue on, trying to save the world from the evils that ravage it.

Welcome to my attempt at a 24 Hour RPG. It may not be much, but we all have to test the waters of creativity once in a while. I hope you enjoy it.

I thought long and hard on this idea before attempting to put it to paper. I have always enjoyed role playing, but with a family and limited time I find myself gaming in play-by-post games. So my thoughts turned to creating a system that would allow for role playing in a forum without the need for dice or other randomizer. It was difficult, at least until I turned to an age old system of conflict resolution.

Rock - Paper - Scissors

Yep, that’s right; a childhood game that can be used for many things. Who goes first, who gets the last piece of pie, which person has to eat the worm at the bottom of a tequila bottle. It’s been used for ages and now it will be used for a role playing system, but not without a few changes.
