I didn't like Xros Wars... and tbh its mechanics would be the most confusing in a roleplay.

Let's not start debating about which series is better mind :<. Hands down, 1+2.

I agree about its mechanics being confusing and how you know, 1 and 2 are the best.

I think Adventure/Tamers would be the best mechanics-wise. (At least for what I'm doing.)

Well, I'm not sure how else to put it, but... I'm leaving PC, and roleplaying as a whole; for good this time. I am sad to go, but my life needs to take a new direction, and my free time is being devoted to other things. So, with a rather heavy heart, I wish you all well and hope the Corner keeps running well for many years to come.

See ya' later, man. As much as I like to joke about this, you're supposed to let life get in the way of RPing, but never let RPing get in the way of life. Hope you find what you're looking for, whatever it may be.

---

I want to gauge interest for two things; Firstly, would someone be interested in a setting similar to Steins;Gate or Robotics;Notes?

Practically I have an idea in mind that could practically be said to be something similar to these two in terms of the usage of science somehow as well as a somewhat slow pickup and conspiracies and all the base components you can take from these shows without too much detail into what makes it it's own. It's likely to take place in a high school, and will mostly revolve around the daily activities of the characters until it loses more of it's sandbox element after a time-skip and we begin the actual plot. I just need to know if anyone would have the inspiration to keep it going.

Secondly, would anyone be interested to a system during the day similar to Persona 3?

I haven't played 4 so I don't know if there's improvements or differences, but practically a Morning -> School/Lunch -> Afterschool -> Evening -> Dark Hour Morning [again] sort of system, where in each one a separate set of interactions would occur [and JPs would probably be encouraged]. I think it could prove to be efficient in terms of moving through days quicker besides time skips; maybe a set amount of days for each transition and stuff. Just a way to generally keep track of time.

Hey guys ' Sorry I haven't been all that active here lately xD

And, I actually like that idea, Kenneth. It'd keep things nice and clean/organized, and would give people a set amount of time to post.

Also, I'm about to post my roleplay idea that I mentioned a while back owo (The one with the Dragons and Dragon Slayers c: )

One of our players had to drop out so there is now a spot open in
Crossroads; A Johto Story!
Here's the OOC and there's the IC.

It's a journey RP where you're joint posting with one or two other players at all times and get a list of events and rewards to choose from in each chapter/area. So you will never run out of things to do and you'll never feel like you're alone unless you really want to post alone for a change. It's worked great so far! We've only gone from Cherrygrove, through Route 30 and 31 and just arrived in Violet City, so you won't have any problem jumping in in Violet now.

You'll start with Froakie (and possibly another pokémon from chapter 1 or 2) unless you reeeeally crave another water starter much more. Join if you love joint posting in etherpad/titanpad, enjoy playing as a rookie trainer (at first!) and like the concept of a level system as well as an event system. And also watch out for derpy evil Totodiles...

I just submitted the IC Thread to my roleplay, and I want y'all to know that there's still plenty of room for roleplayers! (And don't be scared by how long the sign-up period has been: I was busy with things such as my school musical, but now I have my time back and things can get moving!)

Pokémon: The Lost Islands League 2.0
< OOC Thread / IC Thread >
It's a pokémon journey roleplay based in a new "region": an archipelago in the middle of the Atlantic known as The Lost Islands. Roleplayers will start off as trainers of varying expertise, but with all new pokémon. They will enter The Lost Islands with the goal of collecting all eighteen arena medals and then partaking in The Lost Tournament in the hopes of being crowned the "Lost Hero". You may start with any one non-legendary and unevolved "dual-typed" or two "pure-typed" pokémon of your choice, and I plan to have all pokémon available for capture throughout the roleplay.

The archipelago consists of nineteen islands, each with its own arena devoted to a specific pokémon type (with the nineteenth being the Grande Arena, which hosts The Lost Tournament).

At first it will start off as a simple journey roleplay, but I plan to have all sorts of plot twists and darker undertones appear as the story progresses. Much of these will also be up to the roleplayers as well.

So, the SU/OOC thread for my new roleplay has been accepted, so I'll just post this here

Dragons' Plight
OOC/SU Thread

Dragons' Plight is a Medieval faction roleplay with two factions, neither of which are truly 'evil'. The first faction is the Dragon Slayers, who wish to rid the world of, what they believe to be vile creatures, dragons. They travel from place to place in search of dragons, and their skills can vary from being a mage, to a warrior, to a mixture of both.

Of course, there's also another goal for the Dragon Slayers, something that's important to their 'leader'. Though, I'll let you read the thread to figure that out :p

The other faction is, of course, the dragons. Well, a small group of dragons to be specific. This group of dragons is to set out in search of the Dragon Slayers, and to hopefully put a stop to them before they draw too much more blood. Dragons also have the ability to transform into a human form, which allows for them to travel inside cities, etc.

So much RP.

Looking good, both Naku and Lipey! Lipey, maybe you could join Lost Islands League if you won't get a spot in Crossroads, since they are both journey RPs?

The dragon RP sounds interesting. I've never played much in a medieval setting, and certainly not as a dragon. If I had more time on my hands, I would probably join for a bit. Sadly, that'll have to wait. 2 RPs is all I can manage for now. It's good that I'm learning my limits though, after so many years RPing, is it not? 8)

All the Inactives in Johto Mysteries have been removed and the RP has been reduced to 12 slots which are currently all taken. The inactives got until Sunday, the 16thof March to reclaim their spots. If they don't by then, they'll have to wait for a slot to clear to be able to join again.

So, for the first time, I'm actually hosting a reasonably small roleplay of 8. I know some prefer smaller (there are/have been several 4-6 player roleplays around) - but which do you prefer?

My past roleplays have had 10-20 people (Gilded Halls DX) which made the amount of relationships pretty fun - interesting group dynamics. It also meant that there was a lot of activity. On the downside, some roleplayers felt a bit left out, as they couldn't post as often or didn't really want to interact as much.

IMO, small roleplays help fix those problems, but they often sacrifice overall activity - if one or two people call inactive it can have a large impact.

Which do you prefer? Does the number of spaces in a roleplay affect if you sign up or not?

Not really, unless I'm fighting for the last spot. Then it all rides on whether I'm really really enthusiastic for it. Generally, I'm all for bigger RPs though; the big ones always mean a good amount of stuff to do. Although some of them are intimidating at points, after they've started that is. (;;^^)

Nah. It doesn't affect whether or not I want to sign up. But as a GM, I've found that smaller RPs are much easier to handle. Some of the best RPs I've run had 4 or 6 players. So I guess I prefer that, less to keep track of and you can get to know every character easier. Silence in the IC thread for a few days while new posts are being cooperatively written up is a-ok.

Some RPs that I have participated in have had a small amount of participants. Sometimes smaller RPs can be quite successful.

Depends on the RP imo, some work better with a larger group, some are built for a small group dynamic. The number doesn't affect me personally, but I could see people being affected by that I.E. most people aren't gonna wanna join one that has two people in it, and a new member could be intimidated by a RP with a large group dynamic.

I guess that's my way of saying I'm back (if you know who I am, if you weren't in the War RP's you probably don't) and I'll likely join a RP if I find one to my liking. Just finally got my whole life together, so I wanna get back into writing.

This question seems like a long shot, and I mean LONG, but who would be interested in a Space Dandy roleplay? I know it would be hard to make it work, but it would be hilariously awesome if it did.

I think there has been in the past, so it's not impossible that someone can be urged to make it again ;) *pulls Dragon's sleeve*

Not trying to shamelessly advertise, but Pokemon Revelations is still open for SUs if anyone is interested. Things just started getting interesting so it is not like you will be far behind or anything if you join.
