Hmmm. I did want to sign up for that digimon RP. And I am in one pokémon RP atm, where I haven't posted in a while...

Awerghsdjsdfkd

I can't be in all three. I'll simply refrain from submitting this new RP now, after all. And focus on writing a SU for Fuyu's digimon RP instead :] Gotta prioritize.

. . . phew. Maybe I can check it out when you do post it. Or not. It depends . . . I'm in . . . only two roleplays, I think? I'm not very active in either, or in general . . . feh, this sucks. Feh. >.>;

That reminds me. I'll have to come up with a post for the TES roleplay. Valenwood/Elsweyr, here we come(eventually)! xD

Hmm... would anyone join a RP if the whole idea of the RP was brand new and not based off anything? Basically, the GM him/herself created a whole world through his/her own imagination, and all the stuff that happens in it. The time I've been here I've only seen a handful of RPs which have been successful as original concepts. Seems like people would rather join a RP which they already have a lot of background knowledge about beforehand, although I guess that's because then its much easier for them to write because of that.

Anyway, the question still stands - would you ever join a RP where everything (well, most of it) is new and original from the GM? (e.g. let's say a RP based on magic - every spell is brand new and made by the GM, the towns are all designed by the GM blah blah blah)

I wouldn't be turned off by an original RP . However, it needs to be easy to understand and not require too much information from the start.

For example, if the characters start in one city there really isn't a need to post the descriptions of 5 other places on the map. I prefer it when GMs give concise information in the first post and then tell characters what they need to know, when it is relevant.

Also, a clear story is needed. A sandbox-RP in an unknown surrounding is going to end up with lots of confused players, describing things differently or not knowing what to do. Lot of structure please .

Okay so I've been bouncing a Donnie Darko based rp around, and I've decided to put this up to see if I get any feedback before I write it all up and plan everything and such. Obviously you can ask me any questions if this is confusing but you are interested.


Quote originally posted by Lt. Col.:
"Natural Phenomenon"
I N T O T H E D A R K O


Rated M
(For Mature)

The Phenomenon
We live in the PRIMARY UNIVERSE. There are many natural phenomenons, most of them as harmless as the Aurora Borealis. But there is one phenomenon that does much more than make pretty lights. Every now and then, a time rift is created in the universe, and this rift creates a TANGENT UNIVERSE. Think of the Primary Universe as a circle, and the Tangent Universe as a line segment. The Primary Universe, like a circle, has neither beginning nor end. The Tangent universe has a definite beginning and an end, like a line segment. As any tangent does, the Tangent Universe touches the Primary Universe at one point. When the two touch, a portal opens, allowing people to transverse the two. However, it is not recommended you do so, because at the end of the Tangent's lifespan, it will collapse on itself and create a BLACK HOLE. The Black Hole is a huge space of extreme gravitational pull. This Black Hole will completely erase the Tangent Universe, when its time comes. This is the barebones of our understanding.

Normally, a Tangent Universe has no direct effect on the Primary Universe, as its destruction happens when the two are too far apart to affect each other. But, some times its different. There are screw ups in the duplication process. An ARTIFACT (usually made of metal) may be created. And Artifact is an item that has been duplicated, but both the dupe and the original are sent to the Tangent Universe. For example, a toaster is sent twice, so there are two toasters in the Tangent Universe, breaking the Law of Conservation of Mass. The Tangent Universe then becomes unstable, and collapses prematurely. If this happens, the two universes would be too close together, and the resulting black hole will destroy the Primary Universe as well. Obviously, this is not ideal. When an Artifact is created, a HERO (or rather, heroic team) is chosen to expel the Artifact from the Tangent Universe, and send it back to the Primary Universe. The hero will be able to traverse to the Tangent Universe and assume control of their TANGENT HALF. The Artifact will be sent back to the Primary Universe by the hero; this delays the destruction of the Tangent and allows enough time to pass to allow the Primary Universe to be out of range of the Black Hole. Your TANGENT HALF will be destroyed with the rest of the Tangent Universe. Once your Tangent Half is destroyed, your primary half will have conscience again, and you will wake up the moment your consciousness entered the Tangent Universe. Also, you, as the hero, will remember everything from the Tangent Universe. Anyone else will simply have dreams about it, without realizing it actually happened.



Okay, so basically there will be six players, each a member of the hero squad. If you've ever seen Donnie Darko, you know about Frank. Basically, I will play all of the Franks of the game, leading the players towards their destiny as a ghost. The objective is to find all of the artifacts and send them to the primary universe before October 31st. Uh, there will be more information in the sign up thread...if enough people take interest in the rp, that is.

So that is how the alternate world in Donnie Darko worked! Or did you make some of that up yourself? It certainly sounds cool though.

Uh, some of its like what most people speculate, but a lot is just my interpretation and some adaptation for rp.

Like the black holes and what an artifact is and the portal thing is "changed" for the rp. I cant really say i changed anything because none of it is official, as far as I know.

But the fact that there are the two universes and one is a tangent is widely accepted as "canon". Its not certain, though.

Hmm, the idea is very out there - I'm just not really sure how it would unfold? It sounds like the majority of the RP would be 'real world'esque. Or would the tangent worlds be vastly different to our own?

Also, with 6 people taking part, how many artifacts are there going to be? Is there a reason why there are so many if it's quite a rare thing?

@Scyke - I don't mind original RPs at all but the "lore" of the RPs universe needs to be well explained with a lot of detail but with a lower word count. I don't want to read 6 pages of text to join an RP but I need to know enough to actually take part. On top of that the concept and story of the RP need to be interesting as well.

I'm not against making them either. My RP, Reapers: Keepers of the Balance, is an original RP.

@Lt. Col. - It sounds intriguing but also very complex so it is quite hard to judge. It will either be a massive success or an abject failure, although from the sounds of it the former is far more likely.

@ Scyke. It all depends on if the lore and setting are adequatly picture without ten thousand blocks of text for others to read. I myself wouldn't join if there were tons of pages to read before typing my characters name. But that could be just me...

@ Lt. Col. Fantastic. I will admit I fangirled all over your post because I absolutely love Donnie Darko (it's one of my many obsessions), and the premise is complex and intriguing enough to tempt me to join o3o But I have the same questions as Swift. How many artifacts are there, why said amount? What motivates the heroes to even enter the tngent universe? Did they enter it without realizing it or something?

If you post it I'll do a happy dance like this:

I'm the kind of person who has to make an entire wikia to hold all of the lore I've written up if I make an original roleplay. General consensus says that not everyone enjoys that. c;

Okay, feedback answers coming right up!

Okay, this is a big question that I thought might be asked. The tangent universe is basically exactly like the primary one, other than the fact that when inside it, the heroes gain certain powers to complete their mission. So it will be like a real world rp, only there will be some ghosts and superpower type elements (such as superstrength or seeing the future, etc)

There will most likely be six artifacts to find, unless I change my mind. Im debating on having each artifact be a part of a bigger artifact, or if they are just unrelated. The reason there are so many artifacts is strictly because its an rp, but then again, one artifact would work just as well since everyone will be together or in groups the whole time.

@EliteBeats: The heroes will enter the tangent without knowledge of its existance at first. But very shortly there after an NPC of sorts will probably give them a run down of the situation. Thats the plan for now but if I have a better idea or change my mind I would explain it in the OOC thread. :3

Also remember, this rp isn't finished yet. I have the majority of it, but I may add in some things after this or something wasn't mentioned in the teaser post. The main focus of the rp is supposed to be mystery, whichnI guess is going to be hard to do if I say too much!


I'm glad you guys are interested!

When you guys find yourselves not really wanting to post or not really knowing what to write about in a RP, what do you do? How do you get that motivation to be creative and make something? Do you consider quitting the RP or do you do your best to stick to it?

I'm asking since I find myself in that situation now ._.

Right now I'm holding off posting till I come up with something. Think I'm trying my luck though, 'cause it's been more than two weeks since I last posted there.

Best thing you could do really is try to relax and just try to think peacefully on what you can do, being paranoid will only extend your writer's block. Maybe jot down ideas as a mind map or something. Jump in the bath and read a book, maybe actually reading an actual story could help flow your creative juices; it did for me once, so it might work for you haha

Alternatively you could panic and post in the OOC thread to plead for help from the other members, maybe they could give you some ideas on what to write/type?

^I find it disturbing that both of you are in Novia.... actually Scyke is in Connections too.

I usually just bide time and throw around ideas until I find something I like. Then I do the best to work it into at least a medium-sized post.

Haha well, you caught me. It's about Novia. And with this new fat blue responsibility, my mind is going other ways than RPing full time when I'm on PC, which was mostly the case before. So sorry for that ;;
