sup?

With so many people on holiday / away for bits of summer, I feel like we could use another sandbox RP.

Quote:
about this roleplay:
Welcome to Gilded Hall. This roleplay will allow you to explore life through the eyes of a teenager who is, just slightly, extraordinary. Whether it's super powers, a specific aptitude or skill they excel in, this roleplay will bring them together.

GH is going to be very open. It is based on a roleplay I ran on another website, many years ago. There are some similarities with X-Men, however this roleplay is not based on the series or mechanics in terms of abilities. Creativity will thrive in this roleplay, to ensure this each period in the day will be represented by a long period irl. Typically a single lesson will last a month, and is fully optional.

Would anybody be intrested in a really small roleplay, like a four person, maybe up to five? I figured that I should stop joining them like crazy and make one of my own, you know? I have the general idea of what it'll be about, but I don't exactly have a plotline figured out quite yet.

@hereto. RPs don't need 10+ players each xD My Homestuck RP is 4 people and Rika's is 5 (or was it 6?). What sort of RP would this be? Is it based on something? On what? If not, what's the concept of it? :3

Well, it depends on if I actually like the RP because the number isn't a problem.

If you're planning on running a small RP of <5 people, take some time to consider what kind of player you'll be accepting. You will certainly want to be more picky when it comes to sign ups, and perhaps look at the member's reputation in this section.

If one person goes inactive in a 10 person RP it's not a big deal, but in a group of 4 that could be a problem.

Aw Peter, you make it sound as if newbies have no chance :< Everyone should get a chance as long as they can type coherent sentences imo, haha. I usually don't have more than 5-6 spots open in my RPs. More than that and it gets difficult to keep close track of people. When I was the GM over 4 players, it went really well for a good while. But then two of them disappeared... So yeah, okay. It's much worse for RPs with few players, that is true.

I want to be picky when it comes to people I have RP'd with before and seen abandoning my RPs though...

Well, I'm going to base it off of this world my best friend (growing up) came up with a few years back. We kinda borrowed random things from various things such as LOTR to Naruto. So basically, we had a world with like every magical race, but I'll probably limit it for SU reasons. I'll probably have the following options: Elves, Wizards, Humans, Dwarves, Eldorian (My own little invention) and Murloc. Everyone can at least dabble in magic, but the wizards are the most adept. Elves are the best warriors, humans are all around, Eldorians I will explain if I get around to actually putting the roleplay together, and the Murloc are good with anything involving water. The world is completely massive, and for the two or three years we've been working on the story, we've expanded to different realms and galaxys, and have even come up with battles involving gods (and defeating them) and demons.

I think I'm gonna go for something like each person rules a seperate kindom, or my character will rule and the other RP'ers will play the position of a high-ranking official in the kingdom. We ended up inventing villain after villain, and it's been a bit like Dragon Ball Z, where we keep getting stronger and stronger, so I don't have a specific story to follow. The technology will be medieval like: Crossbows, bows, swords and axes and the like. There will be dragons, treants, giants, orcs, goblins, and every other thing we could reference or think of. Keep in mind, we borrowed a little bit from absolutely everything we could think of.

Gauging interest for a Yu-Gi-Oh! roleplay.

Expert knowledge of the card game not required, but passing knowledge (do you know how to play the card game?) is necessary. [I understand that this narrows the user pool considerably, which is why I'm gauging interest.] Not looking for a significant number of players.

Homebrew cards will definitely be allowed (pending some analysis / approval). Probably utilizing some period of time after GX canon as the setting for the plot. New mechanics allowed, but there is a list of restricted cards that cannot be used (due to implications of the universe).

This is another attempt at creating and sticking with an RP; this time, the franchise is familiar, so people won't have to read through tens of thousands of informational writing just to understand the setting. (Really, nobody wants to do that anyway.)

@ Hereto I love that idea, I already have an idea for a revamp of one of my RP characters from before I didn't come here a whole two years @_@

@Cirrus I like the concept but honestly I never learned how to actually play Yu-Gi-Oh, now if I could veto the whole 'know how to play' thing and just be Twisted Fate I'd do just fine XD Don't worry though, I'm sure you'll do fine.

Today I learned that PokéCommunity's RPC is only for the world's most elite and intense roleplayers.

Every other site I've been to (and that's plenty) has no regulation process; no quality check to make sure that an RP has everything it needs to hit the ground running and ensure a healthy game. Any suggestions for such a process have been firmly responded to with the idea that it panders to elitism and stifles creativity.

@Songbird. Well, I AM EliteBeats after all. right? xD

I've found myself in similar situations. Either I've seen a hella mess of a Corner where chaos and one-liners reign... or a bunch of selfish people who believe they're a god sent to Earth when they RP or whatever.

So you could say we're in a neat gray zone here in the RPC?

I'm not sure if you're saying that it's a bad thing that we strive for quality, haha.

I do like the fact that we have requirements that members have to abide by, but it's not like that the requirements are out of control and enough to scare off newbies. for actual posting, it's like 100 words. the legibility of those words relies on the game master and if he/she wants to be able to read them or if it's fine to just go with it. roleplays, I like to have meaning and motive (it really bothers me when members just post "team rocket is back!! we gotta stop them!!!") but the other stuff is self explanatory

I like the level of quality we have but... are you trying to say me and pete should be less strict with accepting roleplays? I like the level of quality the RPC has built up since I started here :)

I....think it's time I come out of my self-proclaimed "retirement". Bring on the roleplays. I am back. I need stuff to fill in my extensive free time. I guess...ChiliDawgs was the one that kind of convinced me :3

100 words is enough for a roleplay post, imo...that's almost a tweet. xD It shouldn't be that hard.

Welcome back to the world of RP Megan. I'm sure there's an exhaustive list of RPs waiting for you.

Not at all! In fact, the regulations you and Pete have in place are probably one of the biggest reasons I love the RPC. There aren't endless streams of roleplays, and that's a very good thing. I'm unable to stick to any of those other RPing sites because they have an abundance of everything, but all of it is uninspired, rehashed to death by posting multiples of the same thing in a matter of days or even hours, and generally everything is just everywhere, including the GMs who post new sorry excuses for RPs every few hours.

I hope it goes without saying that about 99.99999997% of RPs on those unregulated sites are little more than irredeemable crap, no matter how "advanced" the posts there get. Even if the RPC had 100k+ players, with the current rules in place it would still be immeasurably better than any do-whatever-the-hell-you-want sites combined.

Welcome to the RPC, Mac! (Oh, and welcome back to Meggy!)

You should [shamelessplug]join the RéBURST RéBOOT and Heart of Soul! Both are looking for more players. :D[/shamelessplug]
