I'll try to get the OOC thread up by the end of this week. If exams don't kill me that is.
@Khawill : There will be squads as usual and I think I'll pair the RPers in a squad. It'll be easier that way imo.

Would this RP be following canon?

A little new to the RP scene. What does canon mean?

Canon is what officially happened. In other words, does it follow the story, or is the story of the RP going to be different from that of the manga/anime?

It will follow the main story with some twists. So what arc do you guys want to begin with? When Sasuke left Konoha or when Naruto returned?

That's the reason I asked. If we pick the "Shippuden Begins" arc then there'd really be no conflict for...most of it. Same for the "Post-Naruto" arc. That's not necessarily a bad thing, we could have a conflictless RP, but I think that you should take into consideration making the RP take place after Shippuden or, conversely, in a universe where the Original Characters do not exist.

Ok then. Universe where characters don't exist. Akatsuki spots will be open then.

idk, the system would be flawed (System of two factions)
With two sides, assuming even split only half of your rpers would be on one side at any given moment
this becomes a problem with squads, where (assuming the sensei is a player) you would have 4 per squad.

Which means, there would need to be 8 players for two squads on one side. This presents a quantity problem, considering this assumes there will be a lot of players interested (possible as PTA has shown). Since people don't evenly split, there it would be hard to create squads at all. (A 3-5 split in the instance of 8 players would be very unfortunate, but likely)

If we remove a faction, then every player will be on one side. If you were to have 9 players, that would be 2 groups and an extra (who could wait for another group, join as a 5th man, or create an NPC group). Also factions split the players, itd be like 2 different RPs.

Also I'm joining as a Genin, itd be too awesome to pass up.

Arguably, those in Jounin (and probably Chounin) squads don't even need a leader. To be honest, I'm really against Genin being part of the RP. Mainly because the level between an ordinary Genin and a Jounin is astounding - if it came to combat they would have zero chance of beating an opposing team and would have to either god-mode or die.

6 vs 6 = Two teams made of Chounins/Jounins. Players can sign up to which side they are on and then agree amongst themselves for the squads (or be grouped together by GM).

Swift's reasoning makes a lot of sense, then if the RP got a lot of interest you could just increase both sides to have 9. I'm pretty much up for this, but especially if you go the way Swift described. On a similar note, will custom jutsu/kekke genkai be allowed? If not you will limit your RP a lot.

CROSS O V E R

One night, you are awakened by an explosion outside your window. There stands an angry monster who seems determined to destroy everything in its path on the street. The scariest thing is not that it is a monster, though. But it is a monster that you recognize. It is a pokémon.

Suddenly, a sparkle appears in the middle of your room and something comes out of it, as if stepping through an unseen wall. It is a small pokémon! And it holds a little bag, containing four pokéballs and a letter...





Does this look interesting enough? Pokémon with a digimon-like premise. I got a brainstorm tornado and made up a whole plot from beginning to end, with key events and characters and stuff. And I couldn't really just let it go, sooo... :3

Oh wow, that was fast :D Okay, it would include annoying psychic types, a secret Agency and some stubborn legendary pokémon. Who are also catastrophically dangerous. And also Bill, the pokémaniac!

I definitely want to see more of this idea of yours, Red. It's really interesting, and I haven't been in a Pokemon RP in months!

Oookay fun times! I'm submitting it soon then, it's been six days or so since RPs were last accepted so hopefully it'll be quickly until we'll see it up.
Look for CROSS O V E R :]

@Red: I have to admit that your idea is pretty epic. I'd definitely have some interest in it but the way things look, even now, a spot looks hard to come by!

Nah, I'll be having six spots (me included) so I could theoretically reserve all of you five good people here and now prematurely xD But maybe you want to see the thread first.

I'll probably join in anyway. I usually like Red's RPs.

Also, probably safe to say that anybody who has reserved in TAMERS: STREAM (link in sig. :D) has about 47-48 hours until the SUs are selected. :D If people aren't done, better hurry up. Or if people still want in, better GO GO GO! Cause the IC was submitted. :D

Shameless advertising complete

Same as with Nickle.
But Rika being Rika, I'll end up trying to join because it'll be awesome.
Or following it (worst case scenario).
