Cant we make an MMO of the cave? Where we petrogoers just hang around, and maybe a small world outside the cave for virtual beer and stuff :p

And why we're asking for it:

I have tried and tried, and I can no longer resist.

Here's your mmo piglet...
    > Enter Cave    

    It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

    > what is a grue?

    The grue is a sinister, lurking presence in the dark places of the earth. Its favorite diet is  adventurers, but its insatiable appetite is tempered by its fear of light. No grue has ever been seen by the light of day, and few have survived its fearsome jaws to tell the tale.

    > Move forward
  
     You hear a rustling noise
  
    > Get torch

    You search through your pack and notice that you forgot your torch

    > Flee

    You have been eaten by a Grue

A Petroglyph MMO where your a caveman protecting his cave community. You can spread out (as in  start making new caves) or help build stuff inside the cave to make it an underground city/community :p. You can have farms outside to keep the NPCS happy and your character healthy. Every now and then barbarians and wild creatures would come to attack you or the cave so you must defend them off.

Currency?
1) Petro gold
2) Wood & Stone (For structures, weapons or digging)
3) Farm + Fishing = food

Where do you start?
Petroglyph Cave then you can choose to spread out along the mountain or dig holes in the ground to live in.

NPC Companions?:
Villagers as you help build a community. You could probably find others in the wild helping bringing them in.

PigletCNC's Idea: NPCs could be the petro devs, the participants will be us, the cave go-ers.

Story or anything?:
Heck people want to screw around that can come later :p

Game style?
I'm thinking the style of, use some chibi deformed characters or 2D Sticks or something. Now that I mentioned Chibi characters lets go with that. DS Styled cave RPG games, you can dig around, harvest, and hunt for the browser (pop up window).

Can we attack or defend?
Yes, you have a spear that you can build from wood that can have a stone tip (simple). You can attack animals for food (for replenishing health) while animals can come harm the caves and farms outside the cave.

Only one cave, maybe as the community grows larger we'll add more caves, but it'll be free for the core, us. And the others have to pay from 5 to 10 euro/dollars
depending on how many times they posted here and how long they have been part of this forum, every participant will have an Icon, Gold, the core and moderators, silver for the longer participants and bronze for the ones that never posted/are new (or bronze for the medium ones and nothing for the newbs)

Good idea, was thinking about seperating but you did it for me :p.

Making the Cave MMO mini-map (outside only right now). Going to edit it in later when done :p.

Heres the vast world with crazy shaped mountains and s@!$ loads of trees and water. For our Petro Cave look to the top left with the black squares :D. :petroicon: :petroicon: :petroicon: :petroicon: :petroicon:    

Posted Image


And heres what the Petrocave looks like :p

Posted Image

Sorry about the size on both of them.

Added the two concept art and sorry about the size and style of both them lol. The cave ended up simple but I got carried away by the outside world lol.

Picture 1:
1) Dark grey are Mountains to build caves in (or find them)
2) Light blue is water
3) Dark green is grass, Light green are trees (and s@!$ loads of them)
4) Black lines = Mountain lines (half assed those)
5) Yellowish = sand
6) if you want to find our HQ Cave look at the top left with the black squares.

Picture 2:

Inside of the cave with brown being the food, blue being water, Brown being tents or huts. Common we\\\'re not that inferior so I added them tongue.gif.

*now leaves the topic alone so others can thread role play if they want*. Edit: woops, I messed up Evania\\\'s idea and now Darth Yannick :(

I'm glad the Cave is back you guys! Sleeping in the open was horrible!

*to Piglet:*
Did you hide that shovel well? Just in case Fosh wants to close the cave again...

*you hear a sound comming from my stomach*
Hungry... I think I'm going on a hunt. See ya later guys!

*Plays the MMO Cave threads*

-> moves out from the tip of the cave and looks around.
-> Grabs a spear that has been left for him.
-> Goes out to hunt some deer for the food for the PetroCave guys

I vote for Petroglyph to make a simple Browser game chatroom. It doesn't have to be complex, just somewhere to meet and great, farm, hide in a cave and basic hunting for resources for characters to survive (no rpg stats tho).

Though we're not at 8,000 (we're at 4,000) I think this Cave MMO Flash game should be what goes up :p. Look at the two posts I did above and we should have fun :D. I even pmed Evania about the character side of this idea and she linked me to gaiaonline.com (get your ideas there).

If you support my idea make a banner and lets wear it saying "Vote for PetroCave MMO" and linking it to the third post in this thread.

Calm yourself!
It's true, you originally created the idea of the MMO but Ghostly did make it clearer to everyone, so I guess you both get the credit ;)

I picture the Dead Ale Wives Watchtower's rendition of D&D as being what The Cave MMO will look and feel like.  Here is the jist of it, and there is a funny version done with 8bit sprites here.

DM: Golstaff, you have entered the door to the north. You are now by yourself, standing in a dark room. The pungent stench of mildew emanates from the wet dungeon walls.
Cheeto: Where are the Cheetos?
DM: They're right next to you.
Golstaff: I cast a spell.
Cheeto: Where's the Mountain Dew?
DM: In the fridge, duh!
Golstaff: I wanna cast a spell!
Cheeto: Can I have a Mountain Dew?
DM: Yes, you can have a Mountain Dew, just go get it.
Golstaff: I can cast any of these, right? On the list?
DM: Yes, any, any of the first level ones.
Cheeto: I'm gonna get a soda; anyone want one? Hey, Graham, I'm not in the room, right?
DM: What room?
Golstaff: I wanna cast...Magic Missile.
Cheeto: The room where he's casting all these spells from.
DM: He hasn't cast anything yet.
Golstaff: I am though, if you'd listen. I'm casting...Magic Missile.
DM: Why are you casting Magic Missile? There's nothing to attack here.
Golstaff: I...I'm attacking the darkness!

DM: Fine, fine, you attack the darkness. There's an elf in front of you.
Elf: Whoah! That's me, right?
DM: He wearing a brown tunic, and he has grey hair, and blue eyes...
Elf: No, I don't, I have grey eyes.
DM: Let me see that sheet.
Elf: Well, it says I have...Well, it says here I have blue, but I decided I wanted grey eyes.
DM: Whatever. OK, you guys can talk to each other now, if you want.
Golstaff: Hello.
Elf: Hello.
Golstaff: I am Golstaff, Sorcerer of Light.
Elf: Then how come you had to cast Magic Missile?

DM: You...you guys are being attacked.
Cheeto: Do I see that happening?
DM: No, you're outside, by the tavern.
Cheeto: Cool, I get drunk.
DM: There are seven ogres surrounding you.
Elf: How could they surround us? I had Mordenkainen's Magical Watchdog cast.
DM: No, you didn't.
Cheeto: I'm getting drunk. Are there any girls there?
Elf: I totally did! You asked me if I wanted any equipment before this adventure and I said No. But I need material components for all my spells. So I cast Mordenkainen's Faithful Watchdog.
DM: But you never actually cast it.
Cheeto: Roll the dice to see if I'm getting drunk.
DM: (rolls dice) Yeah, you are.
Cheeto: Are there any girls there?
DM: Yeah.
Elf: I did though! I completely said when you asked me!
DM: No you didn't! You didn't actually SAY that you were casting the spell. So now there's ogres. OK?!
Cheeto: Ogres! Man, I got an Ogre-Slaying knife! It's got a plus 9 against ogres.
DM: You're not there! You're getting drunk!
Cheeto: OK, but if there's any girls there, I wanna DO them!
