What was the first RP you were in that actually finished? Did you want to continue? Were you glad or sad?

Legendary Rebels... It was probably for the best that it ended when it did, lest activity problems get to it first. I honestly felt mostly neutral about the timing of the ending. The ending itself was satisfactory though. *sagenod*

I haven't finished an RP on this forum ever. They usually amount to these reasons:

1. I am cursed and many RPs become inactive once I post. Rarely, they die, but it has happened a couple of times.

2. School leaves me unable to post. High school sucks.

3. The GM disappears.

I don't think one should consider themselves cursed at all. :B Only a very very small percent of the RPs actually finish, and most of the RPs just die out without reaching an end. Correct me if I'm wrong, but from all the completed RPs that I checked, none of them had a lot of well known RPers out here who make good characters, and I hardly consider them cursed d;

If this indeed was true i'd say that like almost 90% of the RPers were in fact, cursed.

And going on that same logic, one could say that it is those same people that are the witches and warlocks casting said curses, albeit inadvertently. I mean, you know what they say, "The bonds of people is true power", but when the "bond" is broken, everything (and everyone) goes to Hell.

I hear that a lot too. Sometimes I worry PTA won't finish, due to how long it has to lee running to /reach/ a finish. Guess that just means I'll have to keep working hard to prevent that.

For the six years I've been here, I've only been in one RP that's finished (which I actually got the last post on :D) and that was The Uprising.

Actually, I have a topic which I need to get answered (because there's an emblem if you've been here long enough) and that is;

How long have you been roleplaying at PC? Or how long have you been roleplaying in general?

I've been RPing on PC for about a year now, and that's all I have been roleplaying for.

As I count running in a towel-cape acting like a superhero as roleplaying, I would say since I was five. Strictly counting writing, though, a little over three years.

I've been rping almost as long as I have been here. I was roleplaying at another forum, a small one, rping with someone I got along with online. Hmm.. I think I have been role playing for a little over a year. I originally began rping to preserve my writing skills because I lacked inspiration to write anything. (I still lack it now.) My weakness when it comes to RPing would be sticking with the character I made for myself because I often feel really self-conscious which causes me to go out of character and another would be rping in third person.

I only started RPing when I started here, and that was one year and one month ago. Now give me my emblem.

I started roleplaying here the instant my PTA SU was accepted (it was like, the first thing I did here.) I've been roleplaying for thirteen years. I still got rejected from two roleplays here in the past month though, so it just goes to show that experience doesn't necessarily mean very much.

I started a few months ago I believe (too lazy to check my own profile to be sure) but probably a bit more than a few months. But that's only PokeCommunity.

I used to visit Roleplay Guild, and a dozen other sites I forgot the names of, and even joined "The World's Biggest Roleplay Group" on facebook, though I rarely visit the latter.

Someone close (almost like a son, even though I'm only 17) had been RPing on here for some time, I'm not exactly sure how long. I think he preferred going by "Silver Dracul" though he could have used a different name here. Anyways, He's been gone for quite some time, I miss him a bit. My point is, he would always borrow my laptop to get on, and I found the address after he left, but I was adamant on joining. "As much as I like Pokemon, RPing it would seem too childish to me." However, when I actually checked it out, I changed my viewpoint and gave it a try. First PTA, followed by Earth&Sky, and now Power Sprint as well.

So, tl;dr

Time on PokeCommunity: 4-5 months
Roleplay in General: 8 Years (Give or take some months)



Yeah. Been playing these for quite some time now. Though I've never been in a finished RP.

I've been roleplaying for almost five years; I first roleplayed on a Fire Emblem-centric forum, but then moved here three years ago, I think it was. The roleplay forum on PC was what drew me here and away from that forum, actually.

I, uh, was originally going to post an anticipatory post about the roleplay I just finished writing (I've been working on it and related materials for it for almost five days non-stop), but now that I've answered that question ... I've been here for a long time, huh.

How long have you been roleplaying at PC? Or how long have you been roleplaying in general?

I've started since March. I've been roleplaying for about one year & a month now. It was the year March 2011 that I started, so a bit over a year now. I was a newbie back then, & now I'm in so many RPs. I've improved a lot since then, so I'm pretty happy.

At PC, I've been roleplaying for about 2 and a half years, before that I did mostly novel writing, entered quite a few contests and won one, started that about....6/7 odd years ago now, damn I feel old.

hahahahahaha

Another question if I may,

What factors make a great RP? In your opinion, what need to be in place for a successful RP to happen?

Me, I think loyal RP'ers are important. If there aren't RP'ers posting loyally on a RP, it isn't going anywhere, no matter how great the plot is.

I'll try advertising here. There is an open spot in my journey/chapter RP Arcanum. It's fairly slow moving and we usually make quite long posts. In other words, it's a roleplay for people who like to write. Please join if you find shiny pokémon and a new (detailed) region interesting. Eevee will be your starter~

I second this, guys plz join it's a really fun RP! :D Don't let the few long posts intimidate you or anything though, it's not a very strict RP and the only reason we all did that was to show off and you'll definitely enjoy yourself because everybody here knows RHCP's a cool GM.

I'm thinking about it, only problem is that I've got an assignment due on the 30th and I'm already in two RPs (which are only just starting). I don't want to compromise role playing for school work, if you get what I mean. xD
