Finally the RPA is coming up. Foreigners started just after the last RPA and now it has pretty much died before the next ;; IT WAS SO AWESOME and it never got the chance to reach an RPA. That's the bad thing about having the RPA less often than every other month, according to me. And if you say it wasn't that a great RP because it didn't even live from one RPA to another then you suck then... whatever.

Hey, I'm not really sure if I can actually head an RP on my own but.... I wanna give it a shot (again) so can anyone give me a good idea to improve this and make it be a bit less cliche? ( It's cliche to me anyway..)


Plot: In an island between the regions Unova and Sinnoh, a Prof. Lilly lived there. She was a Pokemon Trainer that became a Professor. Her years of research finally paid of when she invented the Poke-Merge device. A device that could merge humans and pokemons temporarily. She first tried it on herself, with her trusted research partner, Allamir the Alakazam. The results weren’t permanent and could be reversed the moment the device was turned off. Satisfied, she made a school specialized for those who were willing to become one who could use this device. The school doubled as a guild, working to help people and accomplish their requests. This school was located in Unova’s coast, in a huge island with lots of free space.
Prof. Lilly then noticed the rebirth of Team Plasma, wanting to detroy the school for the reasons of “Freeing pokemon from evil human grasps.” The teachers of the school were worried, but decided that the best defense against this is to bring down Plasma once more. The students and guild members would act as their front lines of defense against the Team Plasma grunts and chiefs.

I read over the plot. I'll be honest here, it basically seems like a mix of Pokemon Trainer Academy, and Pokemon Gajinkas. Not very original. Plus you should probably explain how exactly did the Professor gain access to the kind of funds needed for this Academy?

Other than that, it seems fine to me, I guess.
Actually, there's is much more comical and funny RPers here than you may realize.
But that's what I saw personally!

Well, if it sticks around, I suppose I'll vote for one.

:D Oh boy the RPA's are coming up! I hope someone, at least one person, votes for me. I wouldn't expect to win, but maybe if I get voted at least once.

Oh and please, I know I'm going to sound very full of myself right now, but please don't vote for me in any of the Member Awards (Although voting for my RPs is always nice). I wanna give other people, often more deserving people, a chance to win.
Personally I'm okay with the Funniest RPer category. I do see a lotta people who make me chuckle once in a while in RPs. MISS DORONJO

And yes. THE GUY'S WON THE BEST RPER OF THE YEAR AWARD LOL DON'T VOTE FOR HIM xD jk. Though seriously guys, give others a chance.

I agree with what RHCP said. The gap between the new RPAs will make a few RPs (started at the end of the previous RPs) feel ignored. Keeping the gap between 2 RPAs less is better than increasing the gap.

As for the other Categories, I'm pretty much okay with them.

I think that Funniest Roleplayer is a good thing, it's nice to have some humor around the RP corner and then vote who makes the RP's more funny and fun, lol. x3

To be honest, I find the competitive nature of the RPAs to be a bit... undesirable in general. Personally I'd rather see a system based around emblems where people strive to meet achievements rather than to outdo others. Alas~

That would personally require a lot of work. A LOT. You would probably have to keep track of almost every RP to keep a check on good players worthy of these Emblems. Also we would often have people requesting for these Emblems.

Also I'm rather curious about what exactly you have in mind for these 'achievements'. If the idea does seem to be good enough though, I'd like to help out for this new system.

I have a question to ask you: Do you think that fantasy and science fiction can be in the same RP?

My idea is, that they can be, if you have a reason for that!

That I would definitely agree to. It's never easy getting emblems. If there were ever a system based around what you meant Yellow, that would definitely make me happy. I'd feel every tiny bit good of myself everytime I got an emblem for something I did. It'd somewhat make me feel special. ^-^

@DeepImpact: I'm not sure how much more statistical data moderators have access to in comparison to members, but a lot of the RPAs are subjective as it is, so perhaps fellow users would nominate eachother for emblems such as "Really funny roleplayer" or "Great roleplay" or whatnot. It would be like a re-design of the RPA voting systems so that instead of voting on who is better than anyone else, you're voting on who is deserving of an emblem? (There would be a number of nominations required to actually get it.)

And perhaps some of the emblems are less objective and don't need nominations, such as an emblem for creating a roleplay that reaches a certain number of pages?

I'm kind of surprised anyone's really siding with me on this though. I figured I was one of the few/only ones.


@Zero Darkness: They can, and it's not hard, but I personally would never join a roleplay that tried to be both.

Emblems would actually be much more pleasant and nice than the RPA. I agree. If there was some way of making it fair enough.

And yes, I think fantasy and science fiction can go along well together. They are, in some ways and in some productions, the same basic idea after all.

I thought that too, look at final fantasy, "Stargate Atlantis" and all that stuff.
In my RP "The Elementals Rise" the world is splited to four kingdoms which seprated by sea, and each kingdom has it own advance. One more adanced then earth, and other in the time of the roman empire!

Sci-Fi has a core of reality in it, and so fantasy! They both are a creation of the mind, just in other ways, that sometimes may cross!

It is a good idea. Only problem is yeah, keeping track of it all.

We have two emblems for achievements met; the emblem about finishing a roleplay and the roleplay veteren.

Well, it could probably have it's own thread if it was going to be a modification of / replacement of the RPAs. I guess counting the votes would be significantly more time consuming though.

Since when do we do RPAs anyway?

Anyways, new idea: Pokémon x Skyrim crossover.

Spoiler:
Yeah, not the whole Elder Scrolls universe as a whole (since I'm new to it), but the RP would be based on Pokémon and Skyrim as games.

The RP would follow the lives of medieval-based Pokémon trainers (no Poké Balls), who run around in armor and can use, to some degree, magic. You guys would explore, and do several 'side quests', at the same time as you try to figure out why Dragon-types are returning (so you don't get to train Dragons since you should kill them), as well as who and what the Ice Dragon is (main antagonist, yay!).

Anyways, I'm unsure as to how much magic I should allow in the RP (if you need fire, get it from a Charmander, not your ass), and how to implement both Psychic powers, and Aura… oh, and you all get to be Dragonborn…

Ideas?

Why don't you just eliminate humans and have the Pokemon take center stage, even being able to learn magic? I'll admit seeing a Weavile toss an enchantment spell would be pretty neat.

So, I recently watching the music videos for NA NA NA and Sing by My Chemical Romance and I honestly think they have a good concept. Go to youtube for the video's but here the story.


The year is 2019 and the world has gone into a post-apocalyptic era due to some catastrophic event around 2012. There is a new form of Government forming and based in California known as Better Living Ind. (BL/Ind.) who are trying to make a perfect people by making them Draculoids, people who are almost zombies and can't think for themselves. They are led by their leader Korse, also known as the Scarecrow.

On the upside, their is a small band of outlaws known only as The Killjoys. They are the rebels fighting against the Ind. to keep their own free will as well as save others. They are led by the pirate radio DJ only known by the name of Dr. Death Defying and they are on the sole mission to overthrow BL/ Ind. and save the world.

Honestly, I think this story could bent and used in so many ways to make a RP of.

So what are your opinions? Do you think it could work?

Because there is a niche of people that find humans and even humanoids boring or whatever. I agree with you though. It's a rather unnecessary limitation of the target audience when there could've been more flexibility in character customization to appeal to more people. These days it's always a good idea to focus on RP survivability in my opinion.

Umm… the characters in my RP will be human. Honestly, the idea of wizard Pokémon doesn't appeal to me personally.

On the other hand, I don't think I even want to use magic in the RP (as in Destruction or Conjuration), since I'd rather stick with Aura and Psychic powers (not to mention Shouts).

Do you guys like the idea? Are there any suggestions? I'm just checking if people will be interested later on to join, because, as you said, RP survivability is low these days…

@Drunk: ...Huh. Then I have no idea what the guy above me was talking about. O.o Regardless. It looks cool to me. I have two recommendations for RP survival. When making the plot, if you don't force people to work as a team you will (sadly) greatly boost survivability. This is because if all characters are near eachother all the time than whenever someone slows down post frequency everyone is forced to wait, which is very bad for the health of the roleplay.

Speaking of which. Fight inactivity. Skip someone's post if they haven't posted in a couple of days. Send reminders if they need help. Remove them if they repeatedly and frequently hold up the roleplay. It sounds harsh, but when the other RPers are forced to wait it damages their interest in posting. People have lives, but you have a roleplay to make sure doesn't die.

I've angsted myself to sleep over GMs of great RPs just giving people free reign to not post until it's too late. *Cough*Dysidia =< You give someone a week to post and suddenly you find out several of your other roleplayers have lost interest. Boom, huge problem on your hands out of the blue.
