Usually I will keep posting in an RP as long as the plot keeps going. The only times I will stop is if it's just me and the GM left or some kind of emergency comes up and I have to stop for a bit. Other than that I really try to keep RPs going since I tend to get invested in every character that I make. I don't care how long has passed since the last person posted but as long as new posts come up I'll keep at it.

Speaking of joining RPs some more people could join mine! I am in need of an infiltrator as well as some more Mechanists. We're still in the beginning stages so come join!

Kiba is... Well... An odd type of trainer. He calls his pokemon "friends", and considers them equals. honestly, being in Earth and Sky, the pokemon gained more of a personality than Kiba himself. He's just a very... Strange boy.

Raven... Wow, Raven. My favorite character so far. She was created as the most powerful mutant of the bunch; the downside is that she has NO control of her powers, and when they actually work the way she wants, they're almost guarenteed to backfire in her face.

????? is, well... No point in explaining if my TRON RP doesn't start, yeah?



Yeah... I like making odd characters. And I also like them to be a mystery.

So, I guess they're "good guys" (and girls), but they're not the regular kind of hero.

I was planning on making a "Dark, somewhat evil hero"... You know, the one you wouldn't expect to be on the good side.


_____


I was also considering making an "RPG"-esque type of roleplay.
I don't really see how those characters are odd or weird ;o;

And wellllll, I only stop when the plot gets out of hand, the GM's not really acting properly or everybody gets lazy and stops posting. Including myself. I'm a very bad RPer in that way :(

Hah? I don't see how those aren't odd... Though I guess you'd have to see them in RP to understand.

Anyways, why quit an RP?

Getting too busy to keep up.

@Zerin I'm agreeing with DI. I wouldn't say odd as much as undescriptive.

@Raikiri Indeed will have epic rivalries for the ages.

As for RHCP's question, I'd usually stay with an RP until there's really no more activity from others RPers, or if the GM gives up on the RP in the first place. Although, I usually try not to join RPs with GMs I don't trust, or don't think can make the commitment.

I... I don't want to seem rude or anything... but I should say that the characters you've made are not really odd, weird or... ugh I forgot the word for it. Not uncommon, I guess.

Kiyoko, according to you, is a childish and innocent character. This is a trait which is directly associated with being sheltered. It's not very uncommon... Goku is a very good example of this kind of character, when he was a kid. And I guess Kiyoko will be traumatized because of the experiments as well?

And Kiba's personality, pretty much exists in real life as well. There are some people who treats other creatures like animals equal to themselves, and as 'friends'. A lot of characters I first made when I was new actually had a bit of that trait, being good friends with Pokemon and able to understand them to a certain degree.

And Raven, I'll just say that Atlantis Arising is pretty based on the same concepts as Raven and leave it at that. xI Basically, 'mutants' who are strong but have no control over their powers. Although I will say one thing, the fact that you kept saying that Raven is the strongest among all the characters is pretty much not fair. Not being able to control her powers doesn't really matter, specially since her whole chance of hitting is based on a few odds. The fact is that if I were a GM I would not take the risk of having a possible god modding character, but in this RP it depends upon the GM.

So yeah, I'm not really saying that you are not original or lack creativity, these are some of the reasons I didn't really find them 'odd'. In fact, if you find such characters odd you're pretty much saying these kind of people are socially awkward, which is not really true... Just because you're a loner doesn't really mean you're an odd person.

I myself am not able to create really creative characters, so I make sure I don't say my characters are unique, because one way or the other the characters are usually similar to others.

:/ I said that I didn't want to offend you. I'm sorry if I did, but it was constructive criticism. People have criticized my characters as well and since then I've made sure that none of my characters have similar flaws.

The only thing I wanted to say was that those characters really aren't 'odd' because people similar to them exist, whether in the real world or in fictional books. There is no problem with your originality, but the problem is that there are so many books out there with so many characters, in the end one does end up often having similar personalities and flaws to them.

Sorry, I always react poorly to these things.


Reason 1:

I take things to heart. I know it's a major flaw too, I just can't help it. Rough childhood & Teenhood, you know?


Reason 2:

Depression Attacks. I have depression and sometimes it hits for no reason whatsoever.



In advance, I do apologize.

Constructive criticism is good when a person asks for it, but otherwise it should be given out carefully I think :]

Nevertheless, about RP activity. In periods, I find several RPs that I want to sign up for and I might end joining "too many", if there is such a thing. It's not really about having enough time to post - you can almost always make time, really. Stop playing that video game or watch that TV show and go make a post in the RP that you love instead! But it's rather about keeping interest up and staying involved with the plot.

When I find myself in "too many" RPs, it's most often because I no longer can devote myself deeply enough to each and every one of them. I have too many characters and too many plots to try and think about, simply. I may end up getting tired of some of them. At the same time, I don't like to wait for several days for others to post in order to be able to keep RPing, and that is why I still join several RPs at once. I like to have at least one RP to respond to whenever I log in :] I don't even have that now, hah, so I guess I'm not in "too many" RPs yet~!

There's also the risk that I find out after playing for a while that a certain RP wasn't what I expected it to be and feel like leaving. It might still be a good RP, just not for me :]

Lately, some RPs I was in died slowly because the GMs disappeared without notice. That's the most common cause of RP death, I believe. The next most common cause is players abandoning. I try to never leave an RP without telling the GM that I do so; players who simply stop posting without at least stating that they have grown tired of it or don't have time for it, or any other reason really!, are one of my pet peeves.

Time to join more then! Zerin's TRON RP looks interesting (though I won't be joining, as his posts hurt my eyes), as does the Star Wars one. And mine. And Greiger's. So much choice!

Speaking of which;

What draws you to one RP over another, aside from the setting? What can a GM do to spark your interest?

I'm a very judgmental person; I'll admit that right out of the gate. If the OP sports bad grammar and spelling, even when the plot is Atlantis Arising-level, joining it would be out of the question. I also tend to like adventure-type RPs; stuff that happens in a single, set place would probably bore me very very quickly. That's just me, though! I hope I didn't offend anyone. :3

In all honesty I have to agree with Hue on this one. I will join RPs with GMs I have no clue about. If I like the GM then I'll tend to join more of his/her RPs. If I don't then I'll still join. The only problem I have is with a GMs grammar. It's alright if there is one or two small in corrections here and there but if I just see too many grammar problems I won't join simply because I don't like having to reread a post to understand what is being said and sometimes I'll read that first post and I'll have to reread it two or three times to have to work around the bad grammar.

What draws you to one RP over another, aside from the setting? What can a GM do to spark your interest?

Well... a nice looking opening post certainly helps, but if the spelling is poor and I notice some unreasonable plotholes or silly assumptions, then no fancy first post can help. Consistent misspelling or bad grammar certainly puts me down. And walls of text without space between paragraphs. Aside from that, I tend to not like RPs where I play as a pokémon as much nowadays as I used to do. I feel like it's much more difficult to portray a deep character and make it come alive if it isn't human (or human-like). I guess I should try harder though; a good RPer should be able to make anything come alive though, no? ;)


An example of RPs that I am inclined to join are pokémon journey RPs that seem well organized or have a GM that I know to be organized and creative. I don't ever seem to get tired of journey RPs :D Others are RPs from franchises that I really like, such as the Digimon and Star Wars RPs I'm in now. There, it won't matter as much if the GM doesn't seem to be the very best, because I'm doing my best as a player to make the RP great.

Of course, RPs from no special franchise at all can also make me eager to join, but perhaps not until I've seen the game go well for a while so that I'll know that I'm jumping into some seriously nice gaming.

Well, I don't know much about Sonic the Hedgehog, but I've seen plenty of fans of it, so I suggest you make it and see how people respond to it. Just my advice.

Hey, would anyone be interested in an RP that was like The Hunger Games? Sort of like that, except not really killing. I'm thinking maybe ten/seven kids/teens get captured and are forced to compete in these challenges. And maybe they could have some sort of special ablilty, and a birthmark or something that symbolizes it.
Your thoughts?

I used to watch the series before and I found it 'okay', but im not sure if I would join a RP about it. Maybe if you added a Interesting twist, or maybe a new bad guy..... and something creative maybe.

While I've only played some Sonic games and like the franchise, I think the outcome of an RP based on it would totally depend on what story you would give the RP and what the players would be doing, as well as how serious/light you wanted the RP to be. If an RP is thoroughly planned and well written, it can be interesting almost no matter what fandom it belongs to :3

There seem to pop up interest for Hunger Games RPs in this thread now and then, so it will probably be well received if you decide to make one. The main question people usually have is what will happen to the players who's characters get killed off/eliminated from the game. If you did it differently, maybe it would be well received :3 Special abilities are usually exciting as long as they are not made over powered or cliche.

Nice to know my RP is ignored because of coloration...


Anyways, picking one RP over another?

I can't quite say I have much of an answer on that, other than the fact that the more interesting my own character is, the more enthused I'll be to post with him/her.


Sonic RP?

I'm sure you'd find more than enough players; it used to be a lot more popular.


Hunger Games-Killing=RP?

Won't lie, I love Hunger Games, but taking the killing out actually made me lose interest. However, if you kept it exactly the same, where would the originality be?

I have eye problems, so if I look at your light on dark colouring for too long my left eye starts twitching and I get headaches.

I guess TRON wouldn't be a very good movie for you either than... Because in TRON it's pretty much pitch black but everything has teal, white, or light orange neon colors.

I was thinking more of challenges, not killing. And it won't exactly be based off of The Hunger Games, either. I was thinking more of quests, and some battles that you'd get healed after it was over. And the powers won't be anything overpowering, like Mind Control or anything. I was thinking more of an ability like as in elements, and others like illusions. But your powers won't exactly be perfect either. I thought that it'd be cool if you could actually start off not knowing what your ability is, then finding out about it and training to gain control of it.
But, what would you guys like to see in an RP like that?

:D I know all about Sonic The Hedgehog! He likes to feel the wind, chili dogs, hates standing around! Just ask me anything about him & I'll know it! I've seen his show, & played most of his games! I would gladly & excitedly join an RP like that!

I love the TRON movie and I'd like to join the RP, but I don't know if I can. Can you join an RP where you're not as old as the rating says?

And about the Hunger Game-ish RP chef30 mentioned, maybe they can get random powers by choosing a number from a hat and they get the power that corresponds to that. Like in the SU, you could have them put down a number. Kind of like giving everyone a random weapon to start with.
