I see. The one I put in an SU was for the Pokemon Trainer Academy actually! I just went for the one that looked the most popular and the most fun. xD Hmm perhaps I shall view the others as well, but I won't join them yet. Let me get used to having one role first..if I manage to get in, that is. :P

There are currently quite a handful of spots at PTA, as I just recently purged somewhere between 6-8 members for inactivity. Not gonna deny that we do what we do very well, but there's certainly something to be said for variety in terms of the roleplays you join. There's so many different kinds and so many experiences to be had. I'd recommend looking around to see if you might enjoy a second or third RP at the least. That all depends on how much you can handle.

People! A rare instance just occurred! I, Mr. Mammoth have actually posted here instead of just lurking around like a creepy person!

In any case, I just wanted to pose a question. How do people here feel about RPs with Fakemon in them? I was just wondering since I haven't seen much RPs with Fakemon at all. There was one, however I don't think that it got far enough to include them.

It depends on the quality and the lore behind them. If it's a low quality one then it'd definitely deter me from joining the RP, I was the same way about hacks, really.

I'm with machomuu on that one. It takes a long time to come up with Fakemon; especially good ones. In almost every case, real Pokémon would be better and easier. I do remember one roleplay, though, where you were able to capture real animals that were monster-ized — it was New World Order, aspie3000's roleplay.

I agree, if you want Fakémon, you gotta put the effort. The kind of lore you want has to be on par with Raikiri and Supervegeta's Hyrus (though they removed their front page so I can't show you an example). You gotta go ALL OUT. It's not an overnight thing. It's a three month project that you gotta be patient with.

1. When writing a fiction how do you decide gender? Is it ever symbolic, is it random, or is it whatever yours is?

2. What about side characters? Is there always a certain amount of characters of a certain gender or do you also make this random?

3. Finally my question: How would one go about keeping gender anonymous? I don't want to tell the exact gender of the main character.

(I posted this in the Fanfic area as well as it seems relevant in both threads)

It's pretty much random. I either think of it along with the personality, or after it — that's what it depends on, really, rather than any sort of symbolism. I don't like putting myself into my character enough to actually think it stands for something unless it doesn't actually relate to myself; things like politics or the state of the world, and that's still a stretch. I may, however, base a character off someone I know in real life.

2. What about side characters? Is there always a certain amount of characters of a certain gender or do you also make this random?
It's still random for me; generally it's a "what works best for this" situation. If there are more guys, or more girls, so be it. It's not like anyone really cares about ratio as long as the difference isn't glaringly obvious, or the characters aren't well-developed.

Quote:
3. Finally my question: How would one go about keeping gender anonymous? I don't want to tell the exact gender of the main character.
Either don't use "he" or "she", or use both. Note that this only works in dialogue, where two people could see the same person as different sexes. If you're trying to keep it anonymous to the reader or the character is actually androgynous or neutrois, use "they" or one of the various gender-neutral pronouns available.

In roleplaying, this isn't going to be possible, since the character sheet kind of has to dictate their sex a good 99.999% of the time. You have to make sure the other players don't have a third person omniscient perspective going on in their posts, so at least their characters aren't sure about your character's sex. Tell them through VMs or PMs (no one likes being publicly called out), "No one's supposed to know [name] is a [sex]," and they should be polite enough to make their characters act confused about whether yours is male or female/androgyne/transgender.

Hello everyone!

I've been trying to focus on school lately, but my RP addiction is starting to call me back to the site.

Are there any active, yet slow and informal RPs I could take part in?

I don't want to sign up for something more serious because finals will start soon enough, but I still want to have something to write, from time to time.

Pokémon Fallout is readily available, drunk ¬_¬! It's generally player-driven, so you're free to post as you please as long as you're accepted and not taking on player interactions constantly.

Just a reminder to everyone to make sure to post your nominations in the Roleplay Awards! As this is a once a season event, if you miss out now, you won't be able to get your votes in until February! And that's a whole new season of roleplays!

Yeah, I'm working on those, ma'am! :D

School is gonna die down for me in three weeks, and earlier tonight I got an idea for a roleplay. Anyone into Super Smash Bros? :D I'm working on it slowly since I'm being brutally hammered by homework. D:

F*** YES!!

Though... I question how you could possibly turn this into a Roleplay.

Like, Subspace Emissary?

@Leafstorm: Wolf is interested in the prospect of Super Smash Bros in the context where I won't be able to spam falcon punch and still win.

Anyway. Yeah the idea itself is pretty interesting.

I'm not gonna use Subspace Emissary on this roleplay I'm making. I'll have a complete different antagonist. :P Also all characters of the roleplay will be humans with characteristics of the SSB characters (a human with Pikachu's volt tackle, a guy with Mario's final smash, etc). I mean, It's too long to explain and the idea right now is too early, so I'm scribbling everything I can possibly think of in my notebook lol. xD

I didn't mean the Subspace story, I just meant something like a story mode (which Subspace was). Anyways, I'd definitely be interested in it.

Oh, I have! But didn't everybody move on after the anime? The world would be empty except for... whatshisface (I haven't watched in a while). So do you mean RPing as the next batch of people? Because that could be really interesting and awesome. And give everyone an excuse to make the traumatic backstories that they've always wanted to. XD

Exactly, though Otanashi would have moved on by this point and there would be an entirely new set of people.

@Sweet_Dreams @Khawill - Guys, watch the spoilers, some people haven't watched it yet.

Though, still, we could always do a prequel about previous people who were there before Yuri and the gang.

Whoops. Sorry!

The only problem being that nobody would ever want to go because that would mean the RP would end.

I should rewatch soon. It was awesome, even if it was tragically cut down from 26 episodes to 13...

Isn't that a good thing? That's kind of the theme of Angel Beats!, it's that you cannot linger and simply be happy ignoring your mistakes, you must face them or you will never be truly happy. I won't spoil anything, but there really can't be an everlasting Angel Beats! RP, considering a few things. I really do think that if there were an AB! RP then it should have an ending, anyway.

I'm saying that there are always disagreeable RPers who might refuse to let their characters stop angsting long enough to let go, lol. If it's made clear in the beginning of the RP that they'll have to let go eventually, then I'm sure it will be fine.
