Hey guys, just letting ya know that my tablet is fully uncharged and I have no charger for it, so I won't be as active (or active at all really) as I normally am until I get that resolved. Which should be maybe tomorrow, but it could go longer. Until then I'll use the library computers to try and squeeze a few posts out.

edit: also wow on a computer screen my signature looks 1000x dumber ahahaha.

Since we are shamelessly advertising I might join in.

My RPs

Reapers: Keepers of the Balance, Pokemon: Journey's through Novia, Connections and Midnight: A Darker than Black RP all still have some spots available

I'm also fairly sure that the RP I am co-GMing with JNathan still has some room. Whether you are looking for a pokemon RP or something else you'll probably find something that suits you in at least one of these RPs so please check some of them out.

My post was #7777 in the thread woop.

Question time!

Have you ever taken part in a competitive roleplay?

Competitive roleplay normally involves organised teams which go head to head. This normally leads to evictions (big brother style) or deaths as the roleplay progresses - however that is not required.

The purpose is to crown a winning member or a winning team, can involve things like writing challenges as well as visual or verbal puzzles to solve.

I guess waiting has proven to be worth it. I better be quick before those spots are out again! xD

AND SPEAKING OF QUICK, I just noticed your post up above lmao.

I want to see a roleplay like that someday. Competitive roleplays sound like so much fun and it puts you in a "reality-show" scenario, which is quite enjoyable if you have a great imagination. xD

Someone should so a sort of big-brother-esque RP using something like super humans, or pokemon or something for characters. :D

I might write one up but I really don't think I have the time... then again if I could just GM it and got some help from some co-GM's... I'm totally not thinking of using that idea Swift ;p


As for the question that inspired that weird post of mine.

Yes I have but it never reached its completion because only the second half was technically competitive whilst the first was based on character development.

I also created two others that had the guise of a competition but the story line prevented an actual winner from being crowned.

Well, I'm sold Swift, writing up my SU for Gilded Halls at this moment, can't wait. I only hope that Matthias doesn't lose control of his powers, become a demigod, and kill our professor in a completely noncanon movie.

They can be a lot of fun! They're a lot of work though :L baha. I used to be in a huge pirate one, which was basically ship vs. ship vs. ship, was awesome.


Just to let people know, the RPOs will not be taking place this year (although there is a large possibility they will return next summer with the winter olympics). Instead, there will be an alternative event, which will be entirely roleplay based.

I hope people will enjoy it, I/we are brainstorming ideas at the moment and will hopefully have something for August.

^I felt it was a good idea if the RPOs would function the same as the Olympics (either Winter or Summer, which means they'll come around every two years). It's an amazing event, and I wouldn't mind waiting another year for those. :D

Eagerly waiting for that upcoming event, Swifty <3

^And so the legendary Rika x Journey RP ship set sail once more :p

I've never been in a truly competitive RP before, but I guess it'd be very fun! :]

An RP event on the month of my birthday, yay! Eager to see what the mods come up with!

I totally ship this hardcore, man.

As for competitive roleplaying, I've never been a part of one, but it sounds like a lot of fun! Competition is one of the best things there are haha. If there's really something happening in August I'll eagerly await it.

A sample of the story for Arms Achemy Academy: Busou Renkin! Interested? You can find it in the Roleplay Lounge, right across from the Roleplay Corner!

Spoiler:









Busou Renkin are weapons formed by the Alchemically-created Kakugane, based on the user's will to fight. The shape the Busou Renkin takes reflects the user's personality. Busou Renkin are the only weapons known to be able to kill a Homunculus. Kakugane are developed in the process of creating the Philosopher's Stone, the ultimate goal of the Alchemy Warriors around the planet. Kakugane will generate a weapon that reflects the user's battle style; a user will always have the same type of Busou Renkin regardless of the Kakugane number, though there will be cosmetic differences. Busou Renkin are activated by the fighting instinct of the user. This means that they can only be used by humans, since only humans have the instinct to use tools to defend themselves. Kakugane, in their normal state, can also strengthen a user's healing abilities.

A Homunculus is created when an embryo-like creation from a plant, animal, or even a human is placed inside a human. The embryo then invades the brain and takes control of the body, giving it abilities that mimic the natural talents of the embryo's origin. They can all regenerate from virtually any wound inflicted on them, and are considered to be the closest lifeforms to immortal. They are only vulnerable to alchemy-based attacks, such as Busou Renkin or other Homunculi. Animal-type and Plant-type Homunculi possess strength relative to their animal or plant base as well as retaining their sentience (they have the intelligence and reasoning of a human, but consider themselves to be an animal or plant). To activate their abilities, they have to 'transform', usually resulting in a large version of its base (an Eagle-type Homunculus would become a giant eagle, for example). Often the Homunculi's creator would have to brainwash them into following their creator with blind loyalty, though a few have been known to do so by their own choice.




Story
After suffering a nightmare and seeing a terrifying monster, you wake in a hospital only to find that your nightmare was a reality. Your hospital room is empty, and nothing seems out of the ordinary, except for a tanned paper letter tri-folded on your nightstand. Unfolding it, you begin to read.

Welcome to Arms Alchemy Academy! Most likely, your past is dark, painful, and in many cases, a place you cannot return to. You are one of a select few, a lucky bunch of young ones who have survived a traumatic encounter with the Human-eating Homunculi, and have been taken in by the Academy of Busou Renkin, or Arms Alchemy. Each of you will be supplied with a Kakugane, a uniform, and supplies that you'll need in class. Here, you will learn to become a Warrior of Alchemy, and help in the worldwide threat of the Homunculi! However, you're far too unprepared at this point. But don't worry, with years of training, you'll become stronger than you could have ever imagined! I have assigned you a dorm room inside of the academy, and you will be given a week to recuperate before your first day of class. Find your dorm, and be prepared for class seven days from today. At 8AM, report to the classroom, and we will begin with introductions.
Best Regards!
防人衛 Sakimori Mamoru


You spend the following week in the hospital, trying to recover from the trauma of a real-life nightmare. Soon after, you are escorted to a new building, and led to the dorm section that pertains to your gender. You prepare yourself for the day ahead, unsure of what to expect. Catching a navy blue bag out of the corner of your eye, curiosity gets the best of you. You look through the bag and find some average school supplies, some clothing, and a curious hexagonal object. While you have no clue what the thing is, you find it very interesting, and even when it is put away and out of sight, you continue to think about it. You ponder it, wonder what it's for, and why it seems to have your unwavering attention.

~

I have a proposal for non-standard RP thread.

What I'm aiming for is basically the style of a regular forum/chatroom/[insert correct terminology here] where people post under the context of being average trainers in the pokemon world. We talk about raising pokemon, recent battles, that jerk at school/college/work who you think mistreats his pokemon-- real-life as though pokemon were real. There would be no real plots, as the nature of this doesn't really mesh with such a thing-- after all, life doesn't have a plot. Posters would have characters, although they probably wouldn't have much behind them other than personalities-- since this is based off of a chatroom, there isn't really any need to see people face-to-face.

However, there would be rules. No legendaries on your team, no "perfect undefeated trainer." If you have a rare pokemon on your team, you should come up with a legitimate-sounding reason as to why. Also, we would be trainers-- humans-- so no RPing as a pokemon. Shinies would be heavily discouraged-- they could be allowed (under certain circumstances that I have yet to think up), but it sort of ruins your suspension of disbelief if every person posting in this thread about pretending to be a person in a fictional world has a super rare critter (if you do have a shiny in the end, limit it to one). Don't pretend to be one of the game's protagonist, either.

Also, narrating your actions (like *John Deerling plops in his chair and opens a soda blah blah blah*) isn't really going to work with the style of this thread. I can't quite explain how, but it'll become clear once this hypothetical thread starts up.

And to make it really clear, please please please don't write yourself in a intimate relationship with a pokemon, because that gets really uncomfortable really fast. There are probably threads somewhere on this internet for that, but this thread wouldn't be such a place.


Anyways, that's the basic idea. I'm always willing to hammer things out.

Welcome to the Roleplay Corner of PokéCommunity, new member! (unless you are an alt, of course)

Ideas like these have come up before, but been decided against. Mostly because one of RPC's strictest rules is against one-liners, posts which include little more than one line of dialogue or action. We want to encourage writing here, and we love when our RPs turn out like long novel adventures with multiple protagonists.

Chat-like RPing can be done over Skype or somewhere in a more fitting medium; here posts in such a thread would rather be considered as spam. I think some other forums allow this though, so you might try there instead if you are interested of joining a pokémon forum just to RP like that.

This is how I feel and how I believe it's been up until now, but maybe you could talk to Skymin and SwiftSign (the moderators specially assigned to this section) and see if they have different opinions on your idea.

EDIT: what you could try, actually, is to post such a thread in Forum Games or Pokémon Trivia! If it's about pokémon, the latter would probably be better. There, post count is turned off and it's all about having fun, so short posts are not a trouble.

FreeRangeGrass - interesting idea, but I would like to echo what RHCP has said.

Although, saying that, if you could perhaps adapt it to a 'blogger' style theme rather than active chatting, or making sure people roleplay what is /actually/ happening as well as whatever they are saying online... then it could work.

I had originally posted this in the Lounge a few days ago, and... I think it was Skymin (I'm not so sure anymore because the message I was sent is gone now) sent me a note telling me to post in here. But if this sort of thing isn't allowed here, then so be it. I'll try to appeal one more time, and if that doesn't work, I'll try the other board. Thanks for your input!

@FreeRangeGrass: I sort of understand what you're talking about here, and it has the potential to be interesting - but the problem with the idea is, I think, the necessity of making each post a collaborative post (or else risk extreme brevity). If one were to create several NPCs, this problem could be alleviated somewhat, but at its core the idea seems to resemble slice-of-life, which means that (fan)fiction proper would likely be a better medium for you to express the idea.

Hey guys. I'll be leaving again (last time I promise!) until Friday. I'll be back then, and I'll try to get in a post, but again, my computer has been on the fritz. All of my characters can be bunnied by those who probably think it would be best. Sorry about disappearing again. I'll be back.

Good spot! I removed it because I, personally, felt it sounded quite patronising. There may be a replacement next time - although I think there's enough to vote on! :D

Glad to see some people have started already. Deadline is 1st August (11 days?).
