I'd really be interested in any Shin Megami Tensei RP, pretty much any continuity has great potential. I could see a Persona one being the most likely, as a good chunk of PCs RP community likes playing as teens and high schoolers (I'd have nothing against it, Persona 4 is in my top 5 video games), but I'd be interested in another game, as well.

Actually, I just got an idea for a Devil Survivor 2 RP (2 specifically). Maybe one 'a these days I'll make my own RP. The idea for a short Ace Attorney RP has been in my head for a while.

Okay I'm slowly returning to the Pokemon craze, and as I'm working on restoring my resources for Pokemon X I realize there's no way I can do it all by myself. It's nearly as complex as the games due to the amount of elements I'm incorporating.
Spriting, NPC Construction, Mechanics, Even the battle system need work done on it.
And If my hard-drive dies again or my computer bluescreens before I save my work, I'll have to start a large chunk of it over again.
So before I even consider restarting Spectrum Islands. I'll have to get some people to help me finish the resources and later assist in GMing the RP.
I need people who have free access to an up to date PC and are somewhat decent in using the new version of paint.
It also might help if you have alot of free time.
I don't need many sprites made, but I do need to finish the reference charts.

Are you saying that you need people to help you with stuff for an RP?

Yeah ^^

Most RPs here don't use sprites much. But some kind of graphics sure can make a RP look more delicious and fun!

thats the Idea
That And I always accompany RPs with sprites (along with links to youtube videos for music) to give the full experience.
I would have made it a game, but then I don't get to see the players reactions to every twist in the story.

Hey guys, a roleplay of mine was recently accepted and not many people have shown interest just yet. It takes place during a zombie apocalypse in Kanto. You can find it here

We need a few more members before I try and put up the IC thread.

Let's live this thread up with a question:

Do you think it's important to make the first post of a RP look good?

With the first post, I mean the one where the plot and rules and all are.

I think it has its place, but I'll never judge a RP and its potential based on prettiness. I will, however, eliminate a RP from my interest if the first post is illegible and looks like no effort was put into formatting at all. That said, I don't need fancy CSS, pictures or whatever to garner my interest. It's all about plot and potential.

While I don't think presentation is vital, it definitely will sway the attention of most RPers. Generally, while I may be more enticed to read through a nice looking RP opening post, I do think that plot and features are most important, and I won't completely turn down an average or poorly organized RP.

Thinking about it, I think that I'm a little more likely to join a RP that looks delicious in the first post, or in the GM's posts like when presenting chapters and such. It's because often, an elegant looking first post is coupled with elegantly written plot and language.

Not always, of course! There are many RPs that don't bother with formatting the first post (or any post) at all and still are amazingly well written. And I guess there have been RPs with gorgeous first posts but mediocre text xD At some point.

Are you in... 14 roleplays? That's amazing, but it wouldn't be strange if you would become relatively inactive once in a while. I could never keep up with that many. I'm in three at the moment, a number that I'm quite content with.

Oh my god, I left this site several months ago, and when I return, PTA is still going!? That RP had started before I oined nearly two years ago, and it is still going? Amazing.

In other news, what's up?

Hi Nideous, welcome back! Of course, PTA will surely stand until Marin robosplodes passes away. Have you come back to join RPs again?


In other news, I want to make a new RP where I'm not a player, but just the GM. After testing a million several different approaches, I think that is how I like it. For now. I have a few ideas.

Homestuck/Pokémon crossover (pretty deep stuff for the story here)

Sword Art Online/Pokémon crossover (maybe too much to keep track on but could be really fun)

Reboot of Pokémon VR: Game of Chance (probably with SAO-like influences, several characters per player and not in Kanto lol)


The third idea is the one I have most solid ideas for atm.

Of course. You can't keep a fossil like me away. x3 And Yellow is still GMing PTA? Wow, she's talented. Anyone else I know around?

And I have no idea what any of those ideas are. But I'd go with the third one if you are best prepared for it.

@Nideous: Glad to see my brother back in the picture! :D

@Red: I'm itching more to the second idea of Sword Art Online. It'd be cool to RP like in a game. I do hope you make an RP soon, I'm only in one & I need to join a new RP for my tastes.

Speaking of Sword Art Online, I'd definitely like to see an ALO idea, and more, I'd love to see a The World R:2/Dot Hack GU RP, but I always felt that Dot Hack was too far under the radar to be known to the masses.

Well...It seems that over half the roleplays I've joined over my career have either died or have been restarted or such and I was one freaking day late. Are there any new rp's that I could join?

Hey Red, I do believe that I'm in single digits. Lol. I think three are still going. Lets' see: Odyssey, PTA, Earth and Sky. Three. 11 have died.

@Red: I'm sorry, what?~

@Nideous: Not only that, but I deliberately didn't remove you from the list. You're still with us!~ Glad to see you back. And yes. I'm still here and PTA is still going, albeit my ability to enjoy. Unfortunately the situation has become a worst-case scenario and I've been left with the options of give up or wait it out. Regardless. I'm glad to have you back!~ You came back just to watch is continue to creep towards 9001 posts.

Eh? What's going on with the RP? I'd like to help if possible. You can tell me via PM or VM if you would like to talk about it.
