I haven't really been on PC that long, almost a Month actually. So far one of my characters has a crush but that's it for romance.

I have an idea for an RP based on Pokemon Special Adventures... It's more of a concept really, but it doesn't really matter since I can't afford to start a new RP anyway.

I also thought of a concept based on a book I once read, that I sadly cannot remember the name of. Characters would be playing ghosts of their former selves, and their bodies as ghosts would take the form of how they remembered themselves as. Under certain circumstances, they were prone to sinking through the floor and even down to the center of the earth, as if it were made of quicksand, though.

It's a shame I can't remember the title, or I'd remember more proper details.
Everlost! That's Everlost :D By Neal Shusterman I think xD Or Neil. I'm pretty sure it was Neal though. omg I loved that book so much <3 I haven't read the others...yeah, that would definitely make a good RP, now that I think of it o.o

In the book, they're like, halfway between dead and alive. Something got in their way in the tunnel from life to death and they got caught in Everlost, which is basically a ghost earth that lives over the real earth. They could only walk in safe spots without sinking, and if you sink, you're done for. And like...yeah. It was really cool :D I can see a lot of the concept sin it being used in an RP.

As for the romance thing...hmmm....yeah. Well...I tend to think up romances for my characters a lot. But whether or not those plans actually go to action isn't really...hmm...I don't think I've ever actually made it happen. And usually it wasn't planned with another RP'er, I think that only happened once or twice.

Time travel?? You have had a character fall in love, and time travel became a factor?

Going to quickly pitch an idea here...

So I'm brewing a sort of high fantasy RP ... which is going to include a sizeable amount of combat, as well as being fairly freeform otherwise. As such, I am highly curious about how people would feel if I required that people read through and utilize a section about mechanics - a standard six-statistic RPG-esque array for a character, as well as how to assign abilities to their characters, and so on.

Is this a terrible idea or not? I'm not going to continue drafting the system if it is. Essentially, it's a system to rationalize the amount of specialized abilities a single character can have at character creation, as well as a record of the increases in their power.

Bear in mind that this was on an independent forum where magical powers were a norm. xD It wasn't Pokémon or Celebi/Dialga related in the slightest. People were caught up in a love triangle that resulted in travelling back in time to try and kill each other/ not trigger the events that caused the other to have feelings for the one they loved. Also at one point someone's kids travelled back because they weren't sure who their father was. o_O It was very messed up and I miss it. It died before I joined PC, soyeah. Don't trust the age I have on my profile. It lies.

XD Oh my God, I love that!!

Sounds like a book within a story!


New Topic:

What was PC like for you when you first showed up? How did you feel about the site, as well as the community itself? How did you come across the Roleplay section? Had you already been an expert Roleplayer when you joined? Perhaps you did something else entirely?

PokeCommunity was ... very forbidding when I first showed up, at least the roleplay section.

I sucked at roleplaying when I first got here, so there's the reason why.

Legendary members such as Scarlet Weather, Alter Ego, Phanima, and Mika were active in the RP section. Roleplays had high standards for acceptance (probably higher than they are currently - Alter was pretty strict iirc). It was a golden age, though - I honed my roleplaying skills here, and my writing matured a little bit as I learned the arts of elaboration and proper description.

... Although maybe I'm just exaggerating since I'm better at roleplaying now.

Yagerbomb-Thanks for the idea. It has helped me & Zerin so far now.

What was PC like for you when you first showed up? How did you feel about the site, as well as the community itself? How did you come across the Roleplay section? Had you already been an expert Roleplayer when you joined? Perhaps you did something else entirely?

Too many question.

1. I was a bit nervous at first. My first few posts were really short, barely a line infact. Over the months, I see I've improved now.

2. A little nice I guess. I found the site & community real fun, with kind members.

3. Before I joined I was like I wonder what it's lie to see different stories of Pokemon, or even be in one? I looed through a couple websites until I found this. Roleplaying, that's what it's called.

4. I have never Roleplayed in my life until I joined my first RP.

5. Well, I may have RP'd with someone way back, but that was between us only on a different website. We still do actually.

Well, I tell the story of how I ended up here.

As far as joining PC, I was originally drawn in here by Game Development. I joined PC in March in order to start making a game. I ended up not doing very well there, so I left. I came around occasionally to check around, but that was it. When I first joined, the community as I saw it (just the GD forum) was scary and intimidating. One day, while on PC, I decided to look around the PC forum. So, I went scrolling along the base forum. Then I read "Roleplay Corner" and I thought, Pfft, who does this stuff, friggin' nerds. So I clicked to go into where the Roleplay Corner was. So I decided to look at some RP's to get some laughs. Upon reading a couple of RP's, I decided, I want to try this! So I began looking at how others RP'ed. I sent in SU's, got in a couple RP's. I wasn't very good back then (NOTHING'S CHANGED) but I had fun, aside from entangling in arguements with people all the time. Overall, I learned from PC to not knock something until you try it.

P.S. Don't hate me for my comments in the story. :D

@zerin- when i first joined? I did nothing with my account... I thought it would take too much of my time xD my bestie had recommended it to me though, later after my b-day i begun using it, because the same person who recommended the site told me to join Pokemon Trainer Academy,

For a couple of months this was the only RP i RPed in on PC, i thought it was enough, but later i joined "What if" and a couple of other RP's and now i have my own RP too.

hey, I'm considering submitting a roleplay. The basic plot is that you are one of the descendants of the 7 Pokemon who defeated a human that tried to destroy Unova. 2000 years later, he's back and the only way to defeat him is to use the very weapon he used. it would be a mystery dungeon game but split up into 3 in depth parts, each a separate role play taking place at different points in time. It would have mutated pokemon, gargantuan in size as the bosses and there would be a huge amount of focus on battle. In an ideal situation, people would have to be online at the same time to cover each part at a decent pace. pls tell me if this a good idea as i have a draft ready to submit!

I had originally joined PC in 2010, mainly for the hacks. Then last year in the summer vacations, I was bored during the vacations so I decided to try and hack a few games. I visited the hacking forums once or twice, then I stumbled upon the RP Corner right below that. I checked out a few RPs, and eventually joined one as well. Of course, I was a noob back then, but I have improved now. I made this new account in July, and have used this ever since. :D It's just my good luck that the first RP I ever joined (War between Pokemon and Humans) actually finished.

@Pokeman: Yeah, since I'm not a big fan of Mystery Dungeon RPs, but I guess I find it interesting. Though, why are there Mystery Dungeons in Unova? And why was the man trying to destroy it? Also, it's not very easy for everybody to be online at the same time... Just some things to think about.

@DeepImpact The story goes into much more detail but i'd rather not divulge it on the forum, and my mystery dungeon I meant you play as a pokemon and you have the mystery dungeon hub, there is also some final fantasy elements in it(mainly weapons though), as for the online segment, i agree it was just a bit of a hope that it could happen, thanks for giving me your views though!

Haha, I think you should better mention that because it's usually things like that which make the mod decline the thread d: At least, that's what I've noticed all these months, lol. And alright, I understand now, though that looks more like 'Play as Pokemon' than a Mystery Dungeon RP to me, personally.

Like many I was drawn in by a hack - Shiny Gold if you're wondering. I'd been role playing for about six or seven years by this point, and saw that PC had a RP section. I joined a couple of RPs but they never got really far. Then I mostly hung out in the DCC and the Kingdom Hearts group. I quit for a little while and then came back, didn't really RP again until two weeks ago or so?

Tbh I don't remember much of the RP community back in '08/09... My writing style's actually changed since I started uni so I'm less descriptive than I used to be (apparently a flaw 'new writers' have is that they over describe things and don't let their audience have a chance to think for themselves). My SUs have gotten shorter, too.

I have a suggestion.

Should there be two roleplay threads, the first one "Pokemon Roleplay" and the other one "Other Roleplay"? It's weird to see pokemon and non-pokemon related roleplay threads all in one part of the forum.

A few years ago, the Roleplay corner was divided between "Pokemon Roleplays" and "Other Roleplays." However the Other Roleplay section was often ignored with low traffic, interest and a low number of roleplays at any given time, ultimately making the Other Roleplay section dwindle into obscurity. At one point, not exactly sure when, the decision was made to combine the two sections into a single one and for the most part it actually helped stimulate a rise in the number of non-Pokemon themed roleplays.

So should that division be created again? I would advise against it because if you actually sit down and count how many roleplays are not Pokemon themed in some manner right now, you wouldn't get past 5 or 6 (I could be wrong though and probably am). The fact is that PokeCommunity is a Pokemon themed board and presumably visitors and members will be more interested in Pokemon themed roleplays, at least at first. "Other" roleplays have found their niche here and will continue to be created and people will join them if it suits them, but I don't think the interest is high enough to warrant another trial at a separate board. I'd fear it would once again cause a "dark age" for non Pokemon themed roleplays. Plus, the Roleplay Corner is a good general name that suits the boards. Change is nice, but if it ain't broke don't fix it.

I joined about a year or so ago, together with a flood of other new members that were joining the Roleplay section. This was back when there was still the "Other Roleplay" section. I had joined to escape some stress at another website, and since I liked pokemon, this was the place to go. The community seemed very inviting and nice, and I really was moved by everyone's sudden kindness to a new user like me. When I first found the Roleplay section, I was very hesitant on joining, since I hadn't roleplayed in several years. But once I joined one, I ended up joining 10 and couldn't stop. One roleplay I got into actually finished as well.

I met some great people and friends, and won an award for Best RPer. I didn't like my username though, so I got this one instead, ahah. Things have slowed down since school, but I hope to bounce back into activity during vacation.

I'm with Raikiri on the re-splitting issue. Making a second attempt at a separation may make problems for the few "Other" roleplays we have right now, and frankly I really enjoy the variety of Other roleplays standing in a Pokémon-centric forum.

What was PC like for you when you first showed up? How did you feel about the site, as well as the community itself? How did you come across the Roleplay section? Had you already been an expert Roleplayer when you joined? Perhaps you did something else entirely?

Spoiler:
It was nice when I first showed up, and that has never changed for me. I enjoyed myself pretty well. The site was fun to even just watch, and the people were great.

How I came across the Roleplay Corner: I scrolled down. (Originally, I was here around the time the RPC was still split into two sections. I ended up going on an online hiatus for a bout of gaming and school, and came back with this username to see the two forums merged.)

Was I an expert roleplayer? Ye--oh, writing, not really when I started out here, but I did my best (which filled out to about two paragraphs, and that made me feel more accomplished than in my English class XD), which ended up becoming my current minimum.

I think I might have a topic that's pretty good. :3

What was the first RP you were in that actually finished? Did you want to continue? Were you glad or sad?
