I hope I'm not the only one who does this, but who else goes through the Lounge and looks at the old RP's they've been in to get the nostalgia?

So I'd like to make a new RP. I have a few ideas but am having trouble figuring out what to do with them. Also add in the fact I've not had one successful rp, and I've made plenty of them. I can't seem to figure out what I'm doing wrong as a GM. Is there anyone in the RP corner that is willing to help me figure out

1. What I've been doing wrong as a GM,
and
2. To help me get better.

I wish I could help but I am lacking horribly in GM experience, but if you want a bouncing board for ideas or a nubcake of a Co-GM when you work on the new one I'd be glad to help in any way I can.

Hmmm... not really an experienced GM but, i'm trying to get Fate/Of a nation on it's feet

The thing with me was that I had a good GM (GP) to help me Co-Gm it and he guided me through a lot of the process and all that stuff

I wanna be a hero! sorry this just made me say it but I am wondering would anyone be willing to do an RP based on this:

In the year 2020 scientists and nintendo have come out and are saying that any pokemon fan can now be a trainer. An email is sent to all Trainer Club members inviting them to fill out a form that when sent will allow them to begin their journey. Each player will be randomly given one of the starter pokemon (Gen 1-5), 10 pokeballs, and a trainer card. However only certain pokemon have been released and a revamped and real world Team Rocket planson creating robotic legendary pokemon.

If this is considered a good idea then please do tell me I will try to start up an RP. So what do you guys think?

I look over my very first RP every 6 months to remind myself I have come a really long way. and sometimes back on RPs like Focus Shift and The Uprising to remember the friends I made *sappy but true*

I can always try to give advice, but sometimes a Roleplay that doesn't work out isn't always the GMs fault. members who continuously grow inactive is always an issue I face. but sometimes yes, lack of planning brings a Roleplay down.

if you need ideas or another eye to see it over I'm happy to give you a hand :)

I don't quite get the point of it. Why not just create a regular Pokemon RP then. This is essentially just a Pokemon Journey RP, except the players get to travel to real world locations (And maybe absence of gyms, unless those are in the real world). Cus technically, to the characters, they are in the 'real world'.

Okay maybe I should elaborate more this RP will have for one a main storyline (The whole RP doesn't have to be about this but it leads into this) The whole real world Team Rocket thinks they are good guys trying to give trainers more and more which nintendo will not do. Second the RP will be set on Earth and will feature alot of events that only our world will most likely ever be able to have. (i.e. PETA and the UN) And lastly there will be multiple "release zones" (sorta like regions but more contained and are the only places that most pokemon will be (weak ones like birds will be outside the zones at times))

Hope I clarified some things

I see. Yes it clarified some things, but I think adding real organizations like PETA and the UN may cause problems...

Well, if you think you can do it, then you should do it lol.

We need a hero, we're holding out for a hero till the end of the night.
They've gotta be strong and they've gotta be fresh and they've gotta be larger than life...


I'm sorry, I had to do it...
@Genevieve. I don't think you're doing anything wrong. A lot of RPs die because the RPers become inactive, so... yeah. Is nochur fault :3

If you ever need help with anything I could help, with anything really :] But a lot of people who could give better advice have also offered to help -cough, maddy, cough-, so... yeah :3

@amerininja. That concept you have looks interesting... But I think it's pointless to just give Pokemon to people over the Internet for no apparent reason. Why is Nintendo even giving Pokemon out? How exactly did Pokemon appear in our world? Where is the RP set? Are there gyms? E4? So on and so forth. Why robotic Pokemon? Are real legendaries not an option for this Team Rocket? why? Your concept is intriguing, but it could use some development :3

Maybe spend a little more than a week with it. Give it time to fester and develop. Observe the world around you. How would it react in such a situation? Is it realistic? Because you're basing it on Earth, all reactions by 'governments' and organisations have to be validated by motive and reason. You gotta tread carefully when working with the real world. ;)

I'd definitely be interested in a Dragon Ball RP. I actually just started rewatching Z again from the halfway point, and I'm ready to see EXTREME CAR DRIVING!

@Machomuu: That reminds of of a seen from DBZ abridged.
Goku: Wanna drive cars?
Piccolo: Bi***in!

But if somebody were to work with me with the story and Co-GM I would gladly go through with it.

@heretostay123. As long as you can create mechanics that ensure no one will have a Ki of over 9000 before their first post it should all be okay. Also plot. What would be the plot of that RP? :?

I could help if you want, too :3
But I think several other people could do a better job xD

Well, I'm thinking the general plot line takes place in the future, after all the Z Fighters have passed on. I don't care if they are immortal. They're dead and the dragon balls cannot be used on them anymore. I don't really know who the main villain will be.
