We need to get Sprawl to play again! Although I saw him awhile back he seams busy with school and stuff, so that's why he stopped.

Yeah Sprawl was around but you're right. And I don't know about many authors but it would be kinda fun actually to have a new story.

A story, with me as the main character, and I can be the awesome guy, and I end of saving the day over and over again. And everybody should be like YAY firespeed your awesome! And I can carry around an AA12 with Desert Eagle possibly a minigun instead of AA12. 
 
And make me look like Arnold Swarzerneger or The Rock.
 
Hahha, just joking.

I'd warn whoever attempts to write this kind of story to NOT MAKE IT TOO LONG. Don't try to have it evolve over time - have a planned story that maybe fits in one post, maybe two or three. Quality, not quantity. :)
Sprawl's stories were awesome but had the problem that they took so much effort for him to write, and the overall plot never really went very far...
Also, please have someone be your "editor," even if your grammar and spelling are usually very good. Errors creep in, and the spellchecker doesn't always catch them.
 
 
If anyone really wants me to write something, I can try, but what I write generally ends up as too short (although I type quickly, I rarely keep something going for more than an evening or two.)
 
Now for my suggestion.
 
How about: post-apocalyptic Mars.
Where most people are stuck in rusting, collapsing vehicles, as they die out one by one.
Then some people they don't like try to pull the tank off the planet with a rocket ship they found, but they shoot the ship until it lets go, because they don't want to leave their home, and they don't like the people that are trying to help them.
Then the ship comes back many moons later and offers all who want to leave a way back, but won't try to take them this time... but the ship comes back later than the crew said it would, and they never trusted the crew anyway.
To be continued...
 
Actually could be a pretty good story. If the author focused on the social aspects and formed a believable group of people. And you could take it any way you wanted... are the people in the ship exploitative jerks that are going to try to kill Mars while moving the inhabitants where they don't want to go (a la Star Trek: Insurection)? Or are they genuinely people who are just trying to help? Or somewhere in-between? What kind of problems would occur?

Plenty of opportunity for big battles if you wanted, or lots of dialogue.

I'd personally go with the ship-people being exploitative jerks but not make it obvious, at least initially. Or maybe their captain is, but the crew aren't?

Totally out there, idk. Could be fun. I would write it but I don't have the time.

Actually... Not a bad idea Ace. When I was reading your comment it came back to me the old idea I had when I first started the Prime Aces, I wanted to make the first Mars Explorer movie, not just a video, an actual movie! I had it all planned out sort of like a scifi alien/exploration idea. It went something like this I believe… As earth was dying, a space ship (The Sky King) Was sent out to Mars, to look for a new place to live. After arriving a group of like 6 or 7 explorers were to land, after landing, odd things would start to happen, sort of like "Last Days On Mars" But without the zombies, and horror theme. And communications would go out with the sky king, so the explorers would have to get to the extraction point, the enemie ship could be like the Sky Monster or something, and it could take place in GTR's desert. After season one you could find out more about the aliens and what they are and why they hate humans. It could be cool… And I have amazing ideas to make it hilariously funny and have its awesome action slow-motion scenes.
 
Just an idea that I had a while back, but I need more people to make it happen.

If you haven't come across Picard's epic story, it's worth a look–http://marsxplr.com/view-1554 is the first part. I'm afraid I don't know that he ever finished it, though.
