Merry Christmas everyone! In may not be in your part of the world, but it soon will be! As I have done for the past couple years, I'm happy for everyone to go off topic for a little while to talk about your Christmas adventures, whether they be your family dinners or just what you got for Christmas! and even if you don't celebrate it, just tell us how you spend your holiday.

Merry Christmas, everyone!!!

You know, I could just summarize it all for you. I've done it before, it would be no problem.

By the way, 'cause Magic Fox totally pulled a last-minute Christmas special, Soulbond is up as well in the Lounge. Currently 6 spots open for reservation, if you feel you're up for it.

There's not really a gender preference since the gender's are pretty balanced c:

Hey guys, happy holidays to begin with.

Is anyone interested in a Pokemon-only pirate RP? I'm pumped for making one, I'd be glad if you guys were game with me. If the answer is yes, could you please state what you would like (or love!) to see in such an RP? I'm open to ideas, mates.

Merry Christmas everyone! To take the opportunity to step offtopic, I'll let you know that we always celebrate Christmas on the 24th so it's already over since yesterday for me :p One thing I got was the Hunger Games trilogy books. I loved the movies but the saying goes that the books are always better. So maybe I'll be eager about a Hunger Games RP soon enough ;)

Don't listen when people say "those kind of RPs always die" - never stop trying if there's a RP you really like and think could work! Imo, it's all about having fun in the present, future can wait.

So merry christmas, lovely RPC, enjoy family and food and everything that comes with it. <3

Do you guys prefer to have mystery or competition as a driving force for plot and play in a RP? Many RPs let players choose sides and battle each other in one way or another, while other RPs let players take on more allied relationships and strive together through a story or mystery.

I'm sure there are many other driving forces in RPs too. These are pretty basic though. I usually go with the mystery thing for my own RPs, preferring to hold onto strings of the story until I really need to show what they connect to.

I don't really know which I prefer, sometimes I even use both in tandem.

It really depends on what the idea behind an RP is I guess. For example, The Hoenn Diaries may include a little as far as competition goes but it isn't really a driving force. The plot is driven primarily by the characters and their various quests to achieve different goals rather than a specific mindset or aim.

Also, hope everyone enjoyed Christmas.

I prefer competition, as (generally) mystery takes a long time to either develop or for things to be explained.

A question brought up in IC could take months to be answered, etc.

Gimmepie, a driving force for journey rps is probably progression :) like the will to gain levels, complete chapters, build a team.

Peter, yeah it takes patience for a GM to pull good mysteries. And activity by rpers.

I think it's really hard to make an RP anyone cares about if you don't preserve any sense of mystery. Even your stereotypical RP fight tournament has some mystery to it in the sense of not knowing who will win.

Take out all the mystery altogether, and any given RP will crumble.

Oh, I wish I could spill all the true plot of MAO right here right now because I actually think it's cool. So full of myself when it comes to plots ._. sorry if that's disturbing haha.

Come to think about it, have you guys ever written a fanfic (or original fic maybe) based on a plot from a RP? Atlantis would be an epic tale worthy of becoming a TV show for example, Pokémon Fallout would be an awesome 18+ spinoff pokémon anime.

Spoiler:


Mystery is more fun in the long term in the RP, though like Fox said it takes a long time for all the questions to be answered properly/answered or have plot twists in a perfect moment, and sometimes RPs die out before that can happen and so all the planning for the mystery to be resolved would be wasted. /badenglishbutyougetme

Competition is more straight to the point and easier to GM and roleplay with, but has less thrills and longevity-potential imo.
