But, it's no big deal you like your stuff to be symmetrical. It's aesthetically appealing but to an extend; you can only go so far before it looks boring.
I've seen actual shirts where there's only one sleeve, and the other side is sleeveless.

Also, seeing as I have Heterochromia, it's a tad impossible for me to be symmetrical. I actually prefer asymmetry, I guess that's just my "weirdness" factor on the rise, as I probably would wear one-sleeve shirts if I ever found them.

Myeh.

I think "Rated M" seems like a fine format. Though it seems like most of the pages aren't being categorized.

@the warden- I agree. The RPOs were put together sort of at the last minute, but if we decide to bring them back next year, we will make the period for posting much longer.

Not sure actually, but it might be that while I love some things about the real pokémon games, I often find them boring and, uh, confined. Most journey RPs give you a lot more freedom while still being like playing a pokémon game. And I enjoy that, I guess.

I agree with that. In my case, it's been a while since I've been in love with a Pokemon game (GS, maybe Emerald), but since then I haven't had nearly as much fun with the games and usually had to make up new ways to make the game more fun. The problem, for me at least, is that the games relish too much in being an RPG, and a simple one at that, but what makes this a bad thing is that, because of this, it rakes its focus off of being a believable world where creatures much like animals exist. There's not much to do other than battle, prepare for battle, and a few minigames, and...I dunno. I guess its because of the whole "Beat gyms and thwart evil team" scenario that I'm falling out with the games, less formula would really breathe some life into the series. You'd just think that such an expansive world would be far more expansive and varied in activities than battles, a casino (maybe), and some sort of contest. This, then, spills into RPs, and thus it falls onto the GM to make the world seem more attractive, alive, and believable.

There are spots open in my new RP. Pokemon: Rise of the Titans.

This is a crossover rp between Pokemon/ Pokemon Conquest/ and Percy Jackson and the Olympians. In the rp, you play as the child of one of the 14 gods/goddesses, to stop the Titans and send them back to Tartarus. So far four spots have been taken.

The Child of Poseidon, Apollo, Dionysus, and Aphrodite.

There are still ten spots open

Just an informative note to everyone that the RPOs are now officially over! Thank you to everyone who participated! Now, judging will commence, and when all of the categories have been judged, the winners will be announced at the end of the month.

We apologize if anything went wrong during the RPOs, or weren't to your liking. This was its first year, and therefore somewhat of a test-run, in which there are bound to be some problems and such. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoyed yourselves!

EDIT: Judges may now PM scores to myself. A note to them, however, that the events: Horror, Mystery/Suspense, Drama, and Comedy have been discontinued and do not need to be voted in because of lack of posts in them.

The RPO's was a bit too much for me anyway. I can get other emblems anyway. Next time, i better not start on the last minute, & get some help too.

While I'm alive, I won't let any party members die.

This. I would try the RPOs again, but maybe in a much smaller dose than I attempted this time. I was not anticipating becoming as busy as I did this month, and the quality of the two things I actually posted ended up suffering for it.

I really couldn't have said it better myself :D though I'm ok with animals being non-existing, even though some things don't really add up if pokémon are the only "animals". Like the classic question of where the humans get their meat from. And if bacteria and microorganisms exist at all. But yeah. That's being picky xD

I really like journey RPs a bunch too, but usually for various reasons I can never devote myself to them so I end up never posting. It makes me feel super guilty. I really want to break this habit, and since this year my circumstances are different, I find myself able to roleplay more. For now I'm only going to stick to one because I don't want to overload myself. If I'm in too many, it feels like work and I don't want to do it.

That's unfortunately very common among RPers, especially with slow moving journey ones. If I'm only in one or two RPs, it's usually fine, but when I'm in many I tend to "forget" how to play the characters well in the slower ones :x

This is sort of a Universal Note, that yes, I am Akio. For some reason I'd thought I'd need a separate email for games. Not sure why. So I have begun the slow process of transferring everything over to one email address, and given everything my gaming Alias, WolfOfEve.

So, if anyone is open to a new nickname, I'll accept the name Wolf, along with Akio. Maybe even Zerin if any of you remember that.



Anyways, is it me, or did half of PC die before the school season? It's left me curious, since most of the RPs have been drastically slowed down due to some players having now-limited access.

Due to my current seemingly constant state of semi-lucid consciousness I've been unable to post as frequently as I would... like to. I realized I had a problem when I was unable to discern the difference between actually posting a post and simulating posting a post in my mind. I'm sure you know this because you were the one to inform me I hadn't actually posted an entire day after it happened and watched me rage ever so hard. I've found myself unable to properly focus on day to day tasks to the point that the situation is now... in desperate need of addressing.

I'm also in quite a few of your RPs.

That being said, it may be partially my fault. If I post slowly it discourages others around me from bothering to say check in as often. I'm currently trying to figure out how to 'optimize' my energy spent. Right now that may mean a reduction in the overall effort put into a post and it may also mean pursuing the idea of extra help. I am currently not considering dropping characters or RPs ... on PC anyway. I am however considering starving myself for approximately 18 hours of non-sleep, at which point I can eat and pass out or whatever. Supposedly this will reset my body's sleep schedule to have me awake at whenever those 18 hours end. (It supposedly served a very important purpose back in hunter-gatherer days, namely to make sure we could rapidly adjust to being awake when prey was available. Makes sense to me anyway.)

@Yellow - It's not your fault, don't put this on yourself. It's only truly the case if people on a large scale, and you've still been rather active lately, I'd say that's enough to get people inspired; especially what with all of the up and coming RPers that have been joining, lately.

lol coincidentally, I am switching to a new account soon. xD Starting sometime in September probably.

Yeah, school is kinda killing me at the moment, as I finished half of the homework. I'll do the other half tomorrow as I want to get started on Synchronicity. :P

Also, Get Together 10 is coming in September as well. I went ahead and suggested a couple roleplay events in this thread. If you have any ideas regarding a future roleplay event that could work, you can suggest over at that thread. From what I've saw, I don't think I've seen an actual roleplay event in the past few get-togethers.

Just...trying to spread the roleplay spirit here. :)

I was gonna IM you about this, Maddy, but you're busy and I'm short on time lolol

I could really go for a non-Pokemon role-play. Like DBZ. Or Bomberman.

But, if anyone can help me devise a Pokemon Conquest RP, that'd be epic.

Maybe not follow the game's sequence but have Warlords maybe go "to this other region" where people "keep their Pokemon in Pokeballs", as stated by Motonari. Maybe just a few warlords that assumed together to beat Nobunaga, etc, then it's stated that Lady Oichi was given command over Aurora. [/freaking lame idea]

If not that, then a seriously awesome DBZ role-play that-won't-die. No canons.

Don't ask me why I said Bomberman. It was something to throw out there.
Or a Megaman role-play. Or an X-men + Pokemon role-play. I've tried one of those before. It died because someone that was needed to post didn't come online anymore and it was hard to continue over them. But the solid idea was pretty cool. I know I contradicted myself about saying a non-Pokemon role-play, but oh well.

Also, I really liked my other RP idea, but my mom kept my laptop for an unknown amount of time. My Wii unfortunately can't load this site, so I couldn't get on. Too bad for me.

I'm only on number three, and most of the reason for this one was because I had two separate Gmail accounts always open (For some stupid reason I thought I needed two), and on top of that I figured it'd still be easier for people to acknowledge/recognize a name written in English. Also, my Alias is now Universal to all of my accounts now.

I already won that one, in the Fallout OOC, when a poor sad butthurt from Youtube wanted to come rage at me. I can't believe it actually made an account.

Sacred Fire/Divine Water is totally a conquest RP.

And yes, Dragonball would be a wonderful RP, so I'm shocked I haven't seen it here yet.

I'm in... two RPs now xD That's gotta be a low record for me. And in one of them, I'm just the GM. So xD

Pfft, let people have alts, that's one of the fun things with PC compared with other forums who ban alts. As long as you're not lying about who you are or try to double post or secretly join an RP twice or double vote or anything.

I'd like to see a pure Sengoku Roleplay (it could incorporate pokemon, but not as links, or else it would become a Conquest Roleplay), and it would be fun to play a "Total War" or "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" type roleplay- in gameplay rather than plot (though I do love RoTK and would take part in a RP based off of it), a sort of "Command and Conquer type deal where there is a winner, of sorts; in the case of a Sengoku Roleplay it would be the one who Unifies Japan first, or in the case of RoTK it'd be the Kingdom that reigns victorious.

Am I the only one wanting to see an original "Paranormal Haunting" type of RP? You know, everyone has to play normal people in a realistic manner, somehow dealing with spirits and other evil entities?
