Also, nice RP post Skymin xD I love Flynn already and can't wait to see Rhea and him interact. //this should be in the OOC thread >.>'
Oh, just wait until Flynn starts actually TALKING to people. Step one; "you're taller than me!" step two; "i havent even seen my pokemon yet baw baw baw." step three; "there are so many TREES here, pewter city is full of rocks."

HE WILL BE VERBALLY MURDERED hopefully. I want to make him an annoying little 12 year old. GREAT!

OKAY I'LL START.. POSTING IN THE OOC.

Relating back to the current topic, as a student in a country where the education system is VERY competitive (which is why I so dearly wanna migrate to the States or somewhere else, like maybe Australia etc), schedules can be undesirable and really really downright BAD and S**TTY(oopsies)! And frustrating to the point that I might be balding before 60. xD
We're talking about school now? *gets instant headache*

Whats so special about America? D: I'm ashamed to live there, because all of those stereotypes are somewhat true... ;~;

- We have bad education(schools here aren't strict enough)
- Our breathe stinks of hotdogs and other fat foods(...well, at least mine does)
- We're lazy(COUCH POTATOES FTW) < kay maybe not that one. But yeah, you get it. :I

Thats where the Asian Stereotypes came in, because your ALL SO EFFING SMART
I can always remember all the new foreigners coming to our school. Each of them became straight A students in the matter of a week.
I asked one of them if they studied hard for the test they just Aced...

"No, we just know everything already"
MOTHERFU-

^ That is one of the reasons why. XD So I don't have to cram books, mug and study so so hard. And I can use the time to RP and be more active on PC. Plus, my future will be more broader without all the restrictions going on in my country and the cost of living wouldn't be rocket-high. x_x *sighs*

Now, I wonder, whether there's a real job as being a roleplayer. Job as in a position that pays one money, that kind of occupation. I think it would be lovely and fits me. And most of us here. :3

None of this is true where I go to school. But like I said, I attend an all-girl's Catholic school. I mean some Catholic schools aren't that great but my school has good education, we get Italian food for lunch, and other than having to walk up three flights of stairs every so often (we're lucky if it's less than that) a lot of the girls I know are athletic.

There aren't many Asians at my school, either, though one of them is more artistic than she is intelligent (unless you don't count intelligent as "being in all the advanced classes"--she was in three of my classes, two of those not being Honors or AP courses, one of them being Honors Algebra II instead of Pre-Calc. or Calc.).

I wonder if any of my friends there would have an interest in RPing.

I am going to respectfully disagree with most of that and be the one to defend America (and not because I love this country oh so much).

1. Our education system is slightly underrated. For the most part our schools are pretty good and do the best they can. The main reason why so many people criticize our education system is because its not uniform like countries in Europe or Asia. It's controlled by the individual states, so therefore its more dependent on the local system and the students to do what they can. Personally, I had a good education with decent teachers and good classes. In fact, it was good enough to get into Honors classes. If you get into those, the education is great.

2. The quality of breath depends where you live. Some places are worse than others.

3. Americans can be very lazy. That much is true.

From my experience, its called being a writer and you get paid by writing books and/or short stories XP

My high school days were very similar to this, except I went to public school. Our cafeteria was terrible but the classes were good.

1. Well, I'll agree with Raikiri. My school is great :3 I'm in all advanced classes and I know a kid that had to go to the Sr. High for math, so he was doing math that teh regular kids wouldn't do for three or four years.

2. ...Yeah, that's your problem X3

3. I can agree with that -.^

@Raikiri - My lunches are actually good ;P

When did school become the subject...?

I agree. Let's talk about school and stuff in the Daily Chit Chat thread over in OC instead, and keep this thread related to RPing.

Umm I just have a question. The Rp I'm working on I mentioned a few pages back but since last night I have come up with a character I think will push the rating of my Rp up. This character is well, somewhat psychotic, as he his intent to torture and kill at the sight of blood. He is the only character in the Rp I would consider very violent. However there will be mention of blood, but nothing gory. SO the question is what should I rate this this rp?

Rate it T if there's talk about violence but no real descriptions of it happening, I'd say.

If it's somewhat FT-based then it should be T. After all Funimation is giving the series a TV-14 rating like it did Soul Eater which makes me happy but that's besides the point.

Well that's the thing, It just has the Fairy tail feel to the world, and same goes for the basic concept of magic use. I think the best to say it is this characters violence, will be showcased, at least once anyway. As far as other violence goes, I lean more toawrd the Soul Eater, or typical non dubbed anime, where blood can be shown or described but not with gore.

Hm, since I've suddenly latched on to the idea of a Deadly Sin role-play me and my friend are formulating a plot now. We might put in the Seven Heavenly Virtues too, but this means I have to do research, lol. Regardless, I'll post it here for review once friend and I can think of a plot for it. XD

I have a slight disagreement. The difference between roleplaying and writing is that roleplaying requires more than one person.


Now, I'm wondering about RP plots. The PQ has just embarked on a new mission of making another RP, this time, it is I who's callin' the shots. X3 /refuses to say anything more -^u^-

I've a rough skin for a RP based off the X-Men series. I'm thinking maybe shoving it in the time lapses between First Class and the two oldest/earliest movies. Anyone seems interested in a X-Men RP with mutant powers and chi-cha hoohah? XD

I had a cool idea for an RP, I think I mentioned it before? Well, the idea was for a novel at first, but about a team of knights who save the world and stuff. The armor falls to an island and a group of people randomly find it and become trapped into this suit and they can only escape from it by completing a certain task. Or subdue it at least. The armor would grow on the skin like a fungus. Starting from the arm, then spreading.

It's really sad, because this series called Xam'd: Lost Memories provides so much inspiration and material. But it's so good! If anyone was to watch it, they would see a lot of story elements from it incorporated into Broken. I suggest everyone to watch it though!

Okay, going off that, I have a new question for everyone!

What do you use for inspiration for the storyline in your roleplays or characters?

Collaborative story writing! Some authors do it, writing a chapter a piece or something. It's not very common, however.

Either books(the best ones =3) or unearthing buried RPs and stealing snatching little pieces and fragments of ideas and concepts to paste and glue into the puzzles of creating the RP. I try not to make things cliche. :D

Hm, mostly from books. I guess the ideas just pop up into my mind. maybe taking some good factors from a movie and using it in a Roleplay...really they just come to me. and sometimes I run outta juice and there's nothing I can do!

For the characters, I usually let the story form them as I'm writing the SU. I think about what kind of character I would like to play in this RP, then I try to add something interesting to them (though, I think all of my characters are generally bland :/ ) and twist their histories around the plot of the RP.

For plots... hm, I don't know. I sort of get a basic idea on what I want to do and add twists to make it different. And I normally try to implement some kind of game mechanics explanation. My weirdest example is probably Darkrai's Balloon. It didn't live for very long... but the plot I had in mind was pretty cool. An evil balloon and PMD-like transformations...

I mostly use characters that I play in actual tabletop RPG in RL. For example Jeff Bennings from the War RP is really my character in a World of Darkness campaign.

Also, since it's dead, Would you mind telling us the planned plot of Darkrais Balloon? It was real interesting when I first showed up here.

I was actually gonna suggest that but wasn't sure if I should.

DO EET. I wanna join 8D

I can honestly say I am liking the RPs this time much more than the ones I joined way back in '08-'09. With a few exceptions (such as The Second Coming and Mira's Uprising).
