If I do do an 2.0 of the rp, I think I will change a few things to make it more open, and more organized. Perhaps even chaptered. I guess it would also depend on the level of interest.

Yeah :3

Part of it is because I allowed for such freedom, I mean I would allow high level pokemon, if the person's history legitimized it. Though that doesn't mean it would make the challenges any easier.

I've already ammended some of the old rules and tweaked other things I had on the original post.

Perhaps the most difficult thing at this point is the person's inventory. I might try to set a limit on it to some extent.

Yeah, with he inventory thing, half of some people's SU's were there inventory, haha, I just put basic stuff i could think of like a sleeping bag. Some people had stuff like: A collapsable two- story tent with a balcony. Not really though.

Yeah, I think I will write something like:

Everyone will have a tent and sleeping bag (and other necessities) and then leave them with 30 open spots for pokemon related supplies for fairness and ease.

That sounds balanced. The one thing I didn't like about it though, was that The characters were really far apart and I think character reaction would've been fun in that RP.

I could certainly include that in a challenge. Like "meet up with x player at y location to do z task". And I'd still of course allow for people to travel together.

Two reasons why I had them far apart at first was because I wanted people to RP the result of being isolated (aside from being with pokemon) and also because it allows them the freedom of RPing without having to wait for the other person (at least at first)

I'm almost done fixing it up, so I hope it works, plus I've integrated questions asked after I had posted it too.

Okay now it is waiting approval

I'm unsure if I'll participate though, perhaps only act as a narrator of sorts.

I'll still make people having to write unconventional things though XD

Eh...I've got another idea..but I'm stumped.

It's called [Marked]. It's basically about 10 teens who've been marked by these eternal, divine beings known as the Saviour (neither have a gender, but each can be masculine and feminine I guess), and the Pure, last of their kind. They worked together to defeat the great evil known as Calamity. They won, and so they sealed up Calamity for trillions of years. They've watched worlds go by, saddened by the foolishness of each one, but didn't interfere, even when they all died out. They've seen countless destructions and creations of worlds. The one we know now is #11019.

But they've started to notice something: Calamity is back. Oh crap. Saviour and Pure aren't in the best shape, so they've done something they'd rather had not done: seek help. Even though they don't want help, they've noticied humans and Pokemon are an interesting creation, genetic flukes, and the sheer fact they're still alive with all their flaws and stuff is amazing.

Now each Mark has it's own ability, and their users have 3 abilities as well. hey all grow over time.

Now I want to implement an idea into this, like say if you have a fully evolved Pokemon, and one of the Marks makes that Pokemon into an Exceed, which means it's something that's exceeded it's own limits. Like say Rhyperior was the subject, it would have drills in it's hand-holes, it's tail is a drill, it can dig into the center of the Earth, and it's power is amazing.

So, what do you think?

It seems a little muddled, and you'd have to certainly explain what things like Exceeds and Marks are (etc).

It does make sense in what you want it to be though, bad guy is gone, but not truly and now is back and powerful beings get humans with pokemon to stop the threat with the use of their own power to boot.

Well, that's why I came here before making a fool of myself! XD.

But Exceeds are really just upgraded forms of the fully evolved Pokemon.

The Marks are I guess what you called "Access to Ultimate Power", the users at first aren't really sure what to do with them, but as they go along they learn what the real power of their Mark is.

And yeah that's kind of the plot. Though towards the days of finalization I might change it to bad guy is actually a pawn, real bad guy is much, much worse.

Perhaps the best hint in doing anything in concerns to writing is that what might make sense to you in your head, might not make sense to the reader if they were to read it to themselves.

Writers of any sort of experience can make this mistake, so as long as you have a skeleton of a plot and an idea of what you want your RPers to do then you're on your way to being set.

I'm just a little curious about something. Who here tends to play a character that is the same sex as themselves? For girls, does it bother you to play a male character or are you okay with it, and for boys, does it bother you to play as a female or are you okay with it?

I find myself, personally not really taking sex into consideration that much, and that during development of the character, it doesn't bother me if he turns out to be a male, or if she ends up being female, and if I end up playing as a male or female. I assume this is probably the case for most people here, but there might be some with a preference?

Hmm....well, I played as the male most of the time but in RHCP's latest RP, I took a switch to be an opposite sex. I don't really care about the genders but I think that sometimes gender plays a huge role in certain aspects of character development. :>

As for me, I just can't get myself to RP as a girl xP And I agree with Diamond. Gender has a lot to do with the character's development

I usually play as a girl because I find them more fun to play with though I do occasionally play as a male and have little problems doing so. For PC I've gotten in the habit of playing girls because there are far more people playing as boys so I try to even it out a little.

Though RDCP's roleplay ended up with only girls xD

Anyone knows an estimated time for a RP to be validated? I submitted mine yesterday. I'm thinking it'll be a few days? Will I receive some sort of notification if the RP is validated or not? O.o

It honestly depends on how active the mod is. The new mod seems to be quite active, so it shouldn't be more than a few days at most.

You don't receive a notification to say that the RP has been accepted unfortunately, although that would be a useful addition. You just have to keep an eye out to see when it appears. I tend to 'subscribe' to my RP's when I post them, so that if someone does post in it when it's accepted, I receive a notification that way.

Have to agree. Males and females sometimes have different attitudes and behaviours. Even if males and females aren't too different, especially nowadays in Western society, there are certain subtle differences.

Well, I've only submitted one. It took only a couple of days and there was no notification. Just have to keep checking back, really.

Okay, thanks for letting me know. I too do subscribe with the setting too.

I have no preference, actually. I find it equally easy/difficult to play as a girl as it is to play as a boy. It depends more on the personality you give the character than on the gender, I think.

Yeah, I loved it xD unusual. Though, I think Ash_Ketchum's character is a boy? Oh, I have to go accept him *tiptoes away*

I'm so very worried and anxious. I'm all jittery and nervous. It's already the 3rd day since I submitted my RP and I've a feeling it was rejected. >.< I hope it's just my imagination, but what I see gives evidence that my RP was killed before it had its first breath. I saw on Michaela's VM page and Michaela was talking to someone and a line in the conversation caught my attention. It said, "There are already quite a few Mystery Dungeon RPs already out there." Oh dear, this is a bad omen. D:

Just a little bit of advertising don't mind me xD

My roleplay Johto's New League has six open spots due to inactivity, please check out the OOC thread and post your sign-ups there if interested (:

--

Diamond I'm sure it's fine, I don't think any new roleplays have been accepted the past few days and as long as your Mystery Dungeon roleplay has a solid plot there's no reason for it to be rejected (:

Diamond, if your RP was rejected, Michaela would have told you. She's probably busy. (though, I've noticed it might help poking her with a VM... jk don't do that xD I get the feeling she thinks that's annoying.)

Also, Doctor, I've asked for you to reserve me a spot ;)
