What would we do in it though? We already have a heap of roleplays on PC.

That's more of a RPG than RP, as in a game, with technical rules, calculated things, ect.

(At least I think so, based on other forum rp-games, I didn't check the link in-depth yet)

I think you're right.
I'm not sure about using it for PC though. It's a nice thought.

Well in some ways I think it could be fun and also could be bad. Kind of like the RPG V-Road had on his forums, and I think it could be done to where you see the RPG stuff on a set layout (like a new layout could be made to see the HP the Pokemon and all that other stuff) so the ones that don't play the RPG don't have to go around seeing all the RPG stuff.
But we also have who knows how many RPGs on PC. We have two RPG forums and tons of RPGs in both forums. So having this large PRG thing for PC might kill all them other RPs. PC has this main RPG who would want to play the others much any more?

I like the idea. I have been thinking about what if PC got one for some time know, just haven't had the guts to come out and say the idea. I vote yes.

That’s a serious installation though, it’d take Kwesi or Steve. Keep that in mind.
That said though, we’re a pretty big board and not so tightly woven as to have this in the fabric of the board itself. =\

i think this would be completly idiotic. i would probably leave pc if this took over. sorry but i had to come out of my hole and say it.

You would leave PC over a board RPG?! I don't know the reason behind that, but you must have a passion for hating rpgs...

i think it clutters the BB. it just defeats the purpose, i could see an irc rpg but not like this. it takes away from the disscussion (the only real reasom im still here)

Being a big D&D fan I would love a RPG because it would be pretty cool. I would say go for it

I have been to and still go to some message boards with an RP like this and it hasn't lowered the amount of members, but made new ones and grown because of it. I only see it as a good thing for the board.

Yeah, that would be great!

i think this looks like something people do to try to get members, i mean, i think its very bad idea. i mean, how many people would actually use it? well... i think this is stupid, but dont let me stop you all.

I disagree totally. It could bring another great element to PC. It wouldn't really be used to attract members, but moreof, to give the members of PC another thing to do.

You would actually leave over this? That's kinda selfish and close-minded, but I guess we all have the right to do as we please...

i didnt say not to. i just think its very annoying.

If we must have something like that, would you be able to restrict it to just a subforum or something?

I don't like it much. As an expert RPer myself, I don't think any changes should be made. I like it as it is...

October 11th, 2004, 05:55 PM
Nah, I like the RP boards as they are. To me, nothing's better than a good old-fashioned RP. Doing this would take away what I love about online RPing. So, please, pease, PLEASE keep it away from my precious RP's. *runs off and hides them*

In all seriousness, doing things this way was what attracted me to RPing online. I was trained using our system, I achieved my current degree of mastery this way, I want to improve my skills this way. And honestly, I'm seeing a bit of a trend. The people who are the hardcore RP'ers on here seem to be against it. Those that don't RP so much seem to be for it. Just a side note there...

At our(VR) old forums before we joined PC We used somthing like this, but we had a heavily custom modified version ready to come out right before we joined pc. It included a Pokemon center, multiple pokemon, a 'little' battling system, and a few more other nice things ;) But I joined PC before we could open that up. Im pretty sure all of the files have been lost(i have a new PC) So it would be up to my co-webby if he has any of the files still(doubt it) But I am sure me and Psyblast(co webby) could make a better one this time around...

My entire forums was an RPG, every topic was never on topic. And people who don't know how to RPG seriously...it's almost like spamming. My forums = spammiest place on earth

But, the pros of it is that RPGs are a lot of fun...but I'm going to have to disagree with this proposal, we already have a nice RPG section on PC, no need for extra stuff.

I dont think we are talking about a RPG where you role play etc. Well atleast im not. Im talking about a integrated RPG system for vB. Where you play, not talk :P

I have no clue, but still I don't like extra stuff being installed. @_@; So I'm still going to have to disagree to it.

That is also what I was talking about AZ. Another message board I go to has a fun RPG, I'm not sure if it is what some people are talking about or not, but it is called Fizzy Bubbles and it is really fun. You can go to [???] and go to their forums to see what I am talking about. I don't think I am violating the rules, if I am just posting the site so you can see what I am talking about and possibly get ideas, and not advertising anything.

Uhm...thanks for showing me a link that has a bunch of popup ads and now I possible have to scan my computer again for spy or ad ware -_-;; You have us the wrong link.

Please PM me the correct link, thanks!

I just think it would be too complicated to have this for PC, and many people would not play it anyway.

And you have what to back up that statement of yours?

Geometric-sama

We have several thousand members on PC. Do you honestly think that every single member of PC would play the RPG, or even have time for it? *munches a very big cookie*

Not only that, I fear that an RPG system will bring up a lot of competition between members. It's not healthy too.
You'll get people boasting around about how great their team are and the newbies will feel inferior as well.
I'm against the idea of PC having an RPG system.

Besides which the hack costs money. >.< Who's going to pay for it?

ravenstorture
October 15th, 2004, 03:09 PM
First off who is saying that it will have to cost money. We could easily have a board rpg with just posting that is fun and doesn't cost a thing. Second of all, out of the thousand members we have here you automatically assume just because you are against the idea of PC having an RPG that the majority of them would feel the same way. And Purin, wow if after all this time you have been here you still think people here are rude and mean enough to act in the manor you suggested. We now know who the two pessimists are, now don't we?

First off who is saying that it will have to cost money. We could easily have a board rpg with just posting that is fun and doesn't cost a thing.But the thread isn't about a board RPG where you post, it's about a download system thing that I I believe you download and put on PC. Unless you are just agreeing with JA's point...

Personly(However you spell it), I don't care, because I don't roleplay, but I don;t wanna change PC so much....

October 15th, 2004, 04:30 PM
Again, please keep this away. I love PRs as they are, I don't want bells or whistle, the RPs are pretty much what's keeping me here. Those things never intrested my anyway and it's rather harder to keep a good story going when everyone's concrened about their stats and such.

October 15th, 2004, 04:38 PM
I've always found these things stupid, and would never agree to having one installed.

Ok then I must have been misunderstanding the whole time. I am against a downloaded RP, I am for a board/posting rp though.
