It would be a fantastic idea, though logistics and army tracking and stuff would get much more hectic.

The turn schedule too, if others can see each others actions and are turned against each other, they can preemptively deny enemy schemes.

Also I'm not much good at sandboxs. In minecraft I have a better time playing with the water physics than building stuff, and I got bored after 15 minuets.

Then I tried out lava. That... didn't last long.

I would still play it like *snap* that.

I probalbly wouldn't have army micromanagement-if you can suitably mass produce something for an army, everyone can use it. And then pit armies against each other =3

I guess the best way to play sandbox is by having one or two goals to focus on at a time, progressively getting grander in stature. For instance, you could start with "Create a massive construction bot" and progress to "Create a fortress". It really depends on what your goals are.

Derm would be a Half-Minute Hero boss. YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS TO FUCK HIM UP OR HE DOES IT TO THE ENTIRE WORLD!

Anyone who wants to can host another Netland game, I won't mind. Hell Desk too. I'd play either of them.

I dunno, you guys have survived Thomas the tank engine, golems, zombies, nuclear explosions, laser whales, and being on the same team as ragnarock.  I don't think something as tame as a world ending rain of lava will even slow you guys down.

I would love to play a RTD based on Killzone because that game is awesome.

I just had an idea so fucked that it has to be done. Basically, we roll up the backstories of all the epic RTDs, and create a world from it. And then we RTD while rumbling through worlds.
Thats fucked up enough to work.
Hm...

Hey you know, I found this system of additional overshoot rules somewhere , thought it was interesting. Maybe someone could use it.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I don't think it'd work for any serious RTD, though. Silly on-the-fly ones are better.

It's hard enough to think up results for a d6, that would pretty much drive me mad.
