The Player characters in this each play a band member in a rock band named as they choose.
   
The point of the RPG is to have fun and go through the many misadventures of the rock band. The PCís start out with a garage that they owe rent on, a band, and nothing else.  Itís up to them whether they succeed or fail, so be prepared to go far, far off the rails. How they decide to make it is up to them.

standard 6 point spread. Anyone interested?

I'm all about this.  Let's see how long it takes us to start eating gremlins.   ::)

I am fairly interested, I am reading the rules to Wushu now.

I will keep checking in to see what the status is of this.

Is is supposed to be action moviesque or just comedic band hijinks
42.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
If you can't fix it with duck tape you haven't used enough.
I intend to live forever -- so far, so good.

A little of both.  Depends on where the characters take the action.

Thanks for the replies thus far.

If there are any other questions feel free to ask.

Can't wait for the gremlin pie eating contest...oddly enough one of my players last game mentioned this.  He added matter-of-factly "Well if there were Gremlins then Mr. T would eat them. It only makes sense."

One more thing, but nothing to do with the game. Statistics are awsome.  Air is 100% lethal and should be avoided at all costs because 100% of people exposed to this poison have died or will die in the future lol

We should probably figure out our roles in the band and work from there.

Drop some ideas or post up a character.  First come first serve. Fight for position on the stage? We've all seen this.  Could lead to some fun RPing.  Let me see what you've got. I'd love to see a backstory.  Drop Character Descriptions here.  The PC's are in a band together already, but if you want something not known by the other players (like you used to be a mob hitman and are on the run) PM or email me after you post your characters.

An we should agree on an idea of what kind of music they are playing so we are all on the same page.

Drop an idea.  Anything's good.  If you all want to be the roughest toughest group of acid-folk inspired hip-hop MC's go for it.  The point of the game is fun.  If you're not having any then it really isn't a game worth playing. 

Let's start with an easy one.  What do you as players expect out of the game? Do you want a serious game of heart-breaking betrayal, lies, and small sunny vistas interspersed amongst the despair that real bands go through or do you want a more light hearted game.  Post it here.  The game is as much about the players as the GM.

Since the title is Rock n Roll, I figured we were more of a Classic Rock / Blues Rock sort of deal.  I was also planning to play lead guitar (though I imagine that was everyone else's as well).

I expect a more light-hearted game, involving our start as a local garage band and battling against local bands (somewhat literally) with our music. 

In short, somewhere around Scott Pilgrim.

Ironically enough I was going to request either drums or bass anyway...

As a 3-man band, the vocalist normally doubles up on bass or rhythm guitar (or electric organ if you're crazy enough / Geddy Lee).

Actually I wanted my character to be the vocalist and the music genre sounds good to me.

Thus far a three man band...not bad.  Hope we can snag another player or two before we start next Sunday.  Game sounds promising thus far.  Any other takers?

For those with already defined rolls drop a character description and some stats.  Remember to PM if there's anything "secretive" about your characters.

Just saw this, I'd be willing to jump in as the rhythm-guitarist/vocalist if there's still spots.
