Well... It seems real life has gotten to me. As it turns out I am now facing evil in the form of time management, trying to juggle life, school and RPing. And whilst I've seen people here who manage to juggle all that and even more with no problem I literally suck at trying to schedule and organize my time T3T

This is to say that for the time being, I will be on a Leave of Absence, not from the forums, but from the RPing scene itself. Granted, I can still login here, but consistent posting from my part will be virtually impossible, if at all. I do apologize for each and every inconvenice this may cause. To all of you in Connections, TAMERS, Gilded Halls, Origins and PMD PC Edition, feel free to bunny or boot out any of my characters if you se feel like it, as I'm not certain of when I'll get back into RPing. Granted, my leave shouldn't be long, but still. Any and all who were interacting with my characters have the right to bunny them out of their way and, lastly, for all those in ReBURST, I appoint Songbird as full GM now and will try to sort out any chapters with her whenever I can, but if I can't, then I give her full creative freedom of the RP.

Again, I'm sorry. I have to deal with some crap T3T What makes this funny is that this is happening at the same time as my birthday o.o;;
I'll try to be back as soon as I can, but for now, see ya. Stay pretty.
-EB

Oh God... and you're all in my RPs too o.O

@Elite - That kind of sucks, but at least you'll still be logging into PC. I'm hoping you can make a return to RPing very soon.

@Chili and Heretostay - Don't worry too much so long as you can still get some posts in to the RPs you're in when it counts. The people around here have demonstrated time and time again that they are very understanding of this sort of thing so I wouldn't worry too much.

Has anybody here read Anthony Ryan's book Blood Song?

It's the first book of a trilogy, but it reads completely as a stand alone. I really (like, really) recommend it to anyone who likes GoT, or Feist books (especially if you like the latter), but I digress.

I believe it would be an AMAZING setting for a RP, but I'm afraid people would need to know about the plot itself to really enjoy it, so there; I'm interested in making a RP based on it, so if anyone is interested, let me know!

That fact it may be similar to Game of Thrones interests me, Lacoste, but an RP based in the same world as this book will need a lot of detail (and potentially a lot of spoilers).

I will be lingering in the background the next few days. Ninja Swift.

I'll be back-back on Tuesday though, hopefully.

Yep. That's the main issue. '

Oh well, it's just an idea, but if enough people are familiar with it then... let me know!

Just a quick note, my sophomore year of high school started today, so I'll be much less active than I have been recently.

Depends. I have one character that is based on myself, I just write down what I would do if I was in her situation. My other characters usually have a very fun personality which makes it easy for me to get into them.

Most of my characters are either the more serious type or contain various other elements of my own personality so it tends to be quite easy for me to get into character. I have more difficulty when I RP as character who are nothing like me at all - like the ridiculously outgoing ones and all that - so I tend to look to other people I know or characters for inspiration and then put my own spin on things.

Well I must admit I am not as creative and "Out there" as some of the other roleplayers out here, and I respect them for it, but most of my characters contain enough me to go off of. But even with the ones that are different enough I just think of what kind of character I claimed they were and think of what I was imagining when I first created them if I'm having trouble, and it flows from there.

Questions for you guys:

1. What kind of role generally entices you in an RP?
2. You want to have the option of being a good or bad guy, or is that situational with the RP you're applying for?
3. Do you think you should be equals with your fellow players IC, or superior and inferior roles are needed?
4. And if there was this kind hierarchy, would you be able to handle superior roles?

How do you get into character?
Hmmm. I often go back and re-read my own SUs before I make a post, to make sure that I stay true to the character I envisioned while writing said SU. Then I try to get that overall feeling and theme that my character is meant to have, and I let them do what they are most likely to do in the given situation. Sometimes I of course steer a bit since I want certain things to happen - I don't leave it all up to the character's natural whims. Rather, I try to make what I want to happen, happen, but in a way that feels fitting for my character.

1. What kind of role generally entices you in an RP?
Generally a happy, energetic and maybe nervous kind of person. If you mean what kind of role I enjoy playing. Then I vary that basic set with different family bonds and interests.

2. You want to have the option of being a good or bad guy, or is that situational with the RP you're applying for?
Um, I really suck at playing bad guys. Mostly because I don't like when people are being mean towards my characters and it's supposedly okay to be mean towards bad guys xD

3. Do you think you should be equals with your fellow players IC, or superior and inferior roles are needed?
Equals is good, so that everyone can feel like they are participating in an equally important way. But the GM(s) can have superior roles, that's of course okay. To move or control the story or create a believable situation for the other players.

4. And if there was this kind hierarchy, would you be able to handle superior roles?
Depends on the RP. Most often not :p Because I tend to not be overly detailed or realistic with a lot of things and in the past people have made their characters point out flaws for my characters that I didn't mean for them to have and I kind of hate that :p I prefer to play a lower rank or what to say.

Hard to say, a lot of things do but mostly I suppose being a protagonist of a story alongside other people.
2. You want to have the option of being a good or bad guy, or is that situational with the RP you're applying for?
I think it's very interesting when some of the Roleplayer's in a story are on different sides of a conflict, and makes the story as a whole much more complex.
3. Do you think you should be equals with your fellow players IC, or superior and inferior roles are needed?
I believe it depends on the story and the world you're in, I don't feel bad about someone "outranking" me if you will, as long as they seem to deserve it.
4. And if there was this kind hierarchy, would you be able to handle superior roles?
Good question...I like to think I could because I'm pretty smart and I am usually considerate of other's feelings, haven't had anyone complain about be although I don't garner specific praise. Maybe one day I'll test it.

I'm back from camping but will not be posting until tomorrow. I got into a car wreck last night, no one was hurt but I am still very shaken. If just one thing had happened differently I could have been seriously injured or worse. I'm just out of sorts today.

@Ray Maverick:
1. What kind of role generally entices you in an RP?
None in specific, rather the fact that an RP has a large variety of roles is what entices me. I like to have the freedom to choose to make many different types of characters.

2. You want to have the option of being a good or bad guy, or is that situational with the RP you're applying for?
As I said, I like having a choice. Bad guys can be loads of fun to play if done right.

3. Do you think you should be equals with your fellow players IC, or superior and inferior roles are needed?
That's something I think is situational. In some RPs it can help add depth to the roleplaying and make for some interesting situations, but in others it can sow discord and cause conflict between RPers.

4. And if there was this kind hierarchy, would you be able to handle superior roles?
I should be able to adapt.

@Genevieve: Well, as long as you're safe. I hope the camping was fun at least.

1. What kind of role generally entices you in an RP?
I like all kinds of characters, from the goofy comic relief to the bad-a** villain. There is no favorite for me, although I tend to do better with awkward characters.

2. You want to have the option of being a good or bad guy, or is that situational with the RP you're applying for?
I think it depends for me. In JNathan's, Naruto: A New World, I signed up for the villain characters because I friggin' love the Akatsuki, specifically Itachi. In some roleplays, like my own Tenkaichi, I like playing the heroes because I can use the Spirit Bomb and Kamehameha.

3. Do you think you should be equals with your fellow players IC, or superior and inferior roles are needed?
I think that, if necessary, there should be ranks.

4. And if there was this kind hierarchy, would you be able to handle superior roles?
Well, it depends on if I could motivate myself. I'm very, VERY lazy, but I'm intelligent. I'm pretty bad with decisions, though. I'm always trying to please other people instead of the right decision.

I just want to apologize to all those in my RPs and all those who I am RPing with in general for my lack of activity lately. These last few weeks I've been running rather dry on creativity but I'm still around and I certainly haven't abandoned my GMing responsibilities.

1. What kind of role generally entices you in an RP?
I try to do as many different characters as I can, playing them as realistically as possible, but I'm somewhat drawn towards the awkward ones... it comes so easy to me to make comic scenarios with them :p

2. You want to have the option of being a good or bad guy, or is that situational with the RP you're applying for?
I suppose it would depend, and even then, I'm not particularly intrigued by the idea of playing an evil mister bad guy. I suppose I can go with anti-heroe or just somewhat who seems evil but is actually a tiny ball of fur (see: Alaric).

3. Do you think you should be equals with your fellow players IC, or superior and inferior roles are needed?
Other than the GMs level rank thingy, there are no reasons for a Roleplayer to be in a higher rank than another, I think :3

4. And if there was this kind hierarchy, would you be able to handle superior roles?
I consider myself as a nerdy nerd who sticks his face inside books and computers 24/7, but I get stressed with ease, and am also somewhat lazy, put these things together and you'll see why I should never be assigned an important role :]
Also, I'm back, sort of~
Trying to push slowly thru that LoA of mine since I've sorted some stuff out already, and am just trying to solve some scholarship-related stuff now :3
