@deathbymanga - A lot of people in the RP Corner (including myself) have looked to putting a darker spin on pokemon RPs. Not to discredit your idea but it seems as though we need more information because whilst your setting sounds darker the rest of what you wrote sounds more like a regular old journey RP.

As for would people play it; that depends really. A lot of people in the RP Corner, especially the slightly older members, seem to be quite interested in the darker RPs if you ask me so it could work out quite well. But as I said you never really know.

If we make a RP corner banner I think it should be several Pokemon playing a DND like game (with human characters of coarse for the irony)... Of coarse they will be dressed up as their characters and at least one of them doing a crazy pose while the one sitting behind the GM panel has a very evil grin.

We haven't really gotten a plot made yet, but it is basically supposed to be what all the realists say when they look at Pokemon. The world is run by an economy of Dog fighters, where there isn't any government and each city seems to be under the authority of the best trainer ever.

And that is how this is. The Gym Leaders are like kings, working as the Protectorates and dictators of their area. The only unifying authority is an organization dedicated to keeping the Dog-fighting industry as the dominant Economic factor of the nation.

I think there should be a Duskskul wearing a Black Mage hat and hold a staff, a Sableye sitting in the GM seat grinning evilly, a Donphan wearing a White Mage outfit, and a Pikachu standing triumphantly with a Musketeer hat and a rapier in hand

Welcome to PC, GolemLover! Glad to see that you like roleplaying, or RPing as we shorten it to here.

If you are brand new, I recommend joining an existing RP before creating one of your own. I can't see how it's a good idea to force oneself to come up with an idea for a new RP just for the sake of it. Plus, if you join an existing one, you'll get into the swings of how we RP and do things here and be all ready and experienced when you do create one of your own in the future.

First of all, remember to read through the Roleplay Corner rules :) They'll give you lots of useful hints, and you'll know what not to do.

A good place to start could be Pokémon Trainer Academy, a long running RP where you can play as a trainer and which is very friendly and open to new RPers.

Another helpful tip I can give you is to keep an eye on your spelling. You seem to capitalize first letters in rather random words. We let anyone play as long as they do their best, but RPers here normally appreciate when people try to write as correctly as possibly :3

If you wonder anything else, just ask. This thread is a good place, and otherwise I am always open to help anyone. The moderator, Skymin is also a natural person to ask anything about the forums or RPing here. Good luck and hope to see you around!

@RHCP: Actually, if the RP was made unrelated to the main games, then the whole universe of Mass Effect is very easy to understand. Just linking to a few wiki pages would help.

Hi everyone! Just thought I should make a small post here since I'm new and this thread basically seems to be the meeting place of the Roleplay Corner. I'm currently on the hunt for any interesting RPs and I've got a few in mind, but if anyone has any suggestions, just let me know. I hope I'll get to know you all soon. ^^

Also, about that Mass Effect RP...
Quote:
Originally Posted by Stingray View Post
Mass Effect RP sounds like a really good start actually:

How about basing it AFTER the destruction of the Reavers (IE Shepard chose the red path) and the Council is now based on earth as their main fleets were stranded there after the relays went *poof.* While this has caused some friction it has called for an unusual change in government and way of life as Earth and local planets has now become homes to the stranded races. The Alliance completely absorbs into the Council, and overall the survivors completely unify as they rebuild the Mass Relays...

A couple hundred of years past before they are able to rebuild the Mass Relays, and when the Unified Council return to their local systems they find the galaxy quite different than it was when they left. Many of the different races have developed their own paths, and have forgotten the ways of the Citadel. Several factions have developed and while some welcome back the Council with open arms, others are not as willing to give up their new freedoms including the powerful Artemis Federation, the human power that had discovered an alternative to Mass Relays to move between systems (though a bit slower). Feeling threatened by the return of the Council to their way of life the Federation has begun to gather allies, while their enemies flock to the re emerged Council's side.

The Council believes their way of complete unity and absorption of all the races under one banner is the way of peace and hope for the future. While the Federation unites several races under the call for freedom and that all races are allowed to choose their own paths as they see fit...

So what does everyone think about this for a start of a story? I kind of want something that doesn't step on the main story of Mass Effect since Shepard in the hero there and so players would just be some side show to his/her greatness. Also its really limiting...

If this sounds good I can start working on it...
Watch my signature. Now go this please. Seriously, I really do like the idea and as -DeepImpact- mentioned, just put a few links in there and probably anyone who is interested could join, regardless if they've played the series or not. I know I would, obviously.

I would be interested in a Mass Effect RP, but preferably one with no link to the games story. Something BEFORE the Shepard storyline. Because of the various ways of playing through the games everyone has their own idea of how things turned out. If we just avoid that time period we avoid stepping on anyones toes.

Make the Mass Effect RP so I can make a renegade character. I played through the games as a paragon, but now desire to make a total jerk and punch news reporters in the face when they ask me questions.

Ok I will start working on it soon and DI I want to do it after since there are several books/codex entries/etc writen about what happens before and I don't want to take all the time and money reading up on those because if i dont some Mass Effect lore junkie will be calling out everything i do wrong (also having to read that all would delay the making of the RP for a month at least)... starting years after the games allows a little more of a blank slate.

I'll start working on a story and refining what I do have.

Why not alternate universe? ): I completely understand that missing something in that universe is easy because it's pretty vast.

And who did not punch the reporter in Mass Effect 2!? I'm pretty sure everybody did. d:

I feel like you could just change a few minor things in canon for your RP to make more sense, if you need to. Not major stuff obviously but maybe a little detail here and there to save you a lot of work. Just my opinion anyway. :P

And I didn't punch that reporter actually, even though I did a bunch of other Renegade stuff just for the lulz. My Shepard's too good for that. xD

They'll be out soon, sorry for the delay.

Also, agreed on the Mass Effect RP taking place after, but I also wouldn't mind if it took place sometime before, preferably at a time without any other conflicting events happening at the same time. Just make it already!

EDIT: RPAs have been announced! Sorry it took so long. The winners should be receiving their emblems as soon as possible. Congrats!

@Pretty much everyone - Would Mass Effect be another RP that seemed to not require much knowledge but really requires constant wiki searchers? Because RPs like that worry me. On the other hand, if there's already this much interest someone should do it.

Hey Hey congrats to all the RPA winners.

Also I don't really think you'd need to do a LOT of research. Only the alien species + Citadel would require some previous knowledge. But it really is a great universe to get to know, honestly. d:

So I woke up this morning to find that I won best rookie in the RPA, which was a nice start to my day.

It made me feel all tingly on the inside, but that may have been my body telling me to eat breakfast, I can't be certain.

Oh, a little Wario? I wonder what he's all abou- Damnit, now 4 non-blondes is going to be stuck in my head all day!

I understand what people are saying regarding setting the Mass Effect RP after the storyline of the games. But the games naturally have a massive impact on the Mass Effect universe, depending on what decisions you make. My Mass Effect universe will be different from many others, and many others from mine, due to the decisions our Shepards made. By setting the RP before the game storyline you avoid this issue. You also avoid giving people who haven't played any, or all of, the games any spoilers. Just my two cents however, I'll likely join the RP regardless of when it is set. Just thought I'd give my view on things.

I do agree that forming some sort of team would be a good route though, give us our own cool ship and mission etc. Perhaps on the sign ups you could ask that people specify what role on the team their character would fill? Engineer, Gunnery Officer etc.

On another note, I'm making progress with my RP. It might be submitted sooner than summer. I might submit it next week for spring break, assuming I finish it in that time. Don't get your hopes up, I may not finish it in time.
